Chainsaw Man kicked off Asa and Yoru’s first real fight against a surprising demonic threat, and the latest chapter of the series revealed that the most powerful weapon at their disposal is quite reminiscent of the same kind of fighting style seen in the massively popular anime series. , Kill la Kill. Studio Trigger recently celebrated its tenth anniversary, and it all started with its first original anime series ten years ago. This introduced fans to Ryuko Matoi, whose main weapon was actually the uniform she wore, and when she wasn’t using it, she could often be completely naked as a result.
It got off to a rough start with the previous chapter of the series as Asa and Yoru began their battle with Yuko’s new Justice Devil transformation. Yoru was struggling against an opponent who could even read the war devil’s mind, so Asa decided to step in and try to get to her friend. When that doesn’t work, she is forced to fight as well and unleashes her own weapon using the power of the War Devil. In the end, it’s a surprisingly strong “Super Strong Uniform Sword” made from her school uniform.
What is Asa Mitaka’s strongest weapon?
Chapter 108 of Chainsaw Man sees Asa decide to fight Yuko all the way, so Yoru explains that in order to use her power, she needs to touch something that belongs to her and name it. She touches the school uniform and calls out for “Super Strong Uniform Sword”, which rips the uniform from her body and becomes a sword. When Yuko knocks it down thinking it’s going to be very week, it ends up stronger and sharper than expected as Yuko’s devilish body is completely ripped apart.
Asa reveals that it’s the uniform her mother gave her before she died, which is probably why she’s so strong. But it also means that Asa will be fighting without clothes, much like Kill la Kill’s Ryuko Matoi when she used the power of her own school uniform during that series. Of course, they’re completely different situations, but it’s fun to see the main idea carried over into a new action series.
