Chainsaw Man hit fans with a new episode this week, and predictably, it hurt something wild. After all, the show followed Aki on a new mission, and the hunting party was hardly prepared for what they found. Devil Katana has made his debut, and Chainsaw Man has just released new villain art from the creator of Hell’s Paradise.
As you can see below, the artwork brings Katana Man to life in stark shades of black and white. Dressed in a smart coat and button-up, the hybrid fiend looks terrifying in the footage with his shadowed features. You can barely make our man’s teeth dirty, and that makes the whole tribute all the more terrifying.
Katana Man Rising
Of course, this bold style is typical of Yuji Kaku. You can look at their work and see their hallmarks are all over this artwork. In fact, Infernal Paradise is littered with appalling artwork that shocks readers as much as it draws them in. So of course it’s only fitting that Kaku paid tribute to Katana Man.
If you don’t know this villain, you can meet him in the latest episode of Chainsaw Man. The anime runs through the first season and will end this winter after the 12th episode airs. Right now you can stream the show in the states on Crunchyroll or Hulu. So for those who want more information about Chainsaw Man, you can read its official synopsis below:
“Denji is a poor young man who will do anything for money, even hunting devils with his pet devil-dog Pochita. He is a simple man with simple dreams, drowning under a mountain of debt. But his sad life is turned upside down. day, when he is betrayed by someone he trusts. Now with the power of the devil within him, Denji has become a whole new man – the Chainsaw Man!”
