Where to Read Chainsaw Man Manga After the Anime

Chainsaw Man anime wrapped up its first season on December 28, 2022, by swooping otakus off their feet with a banging cliffhanger. So, the natural course of action after such an end is to turn to the manga for answers.

However, reading manga doesn’t suit everyone, and since many have already watched the anime, it won’t be easy to figure out where to start reading.

Worry not, as we have come to your rescue and solved your queries regarding this issue.

Chainsaw Man anime’s last episode, 12, adapted chapters 35, 36, 37, and part of 38. In that case, you should begin reading the manga from chapter 38 and continue from there on.

You can read the manga on Viz Media, the official distributor of it in English for fans worldwide.

Episode 12 ended with Denji and Katana Man exchanging heavy blows, which resulted in the latter getting captured and tortured by the Chainsaw Man and Aki. The torture was unlike anything you’ve seen in anime and if you want to know about it, then watch the episode because there’s no way I’m explaining it.

As Makima reports, the incident was a terrorist attack instigated by Akane Sawatari, the Snake Devil kills the former civilian devil hunter. Although it looked like suicide, there was no way of knowing what it really was.

After this, the manga will continue with the Katana Man arc in chapter 39 and then start with the Bomb Girl arc in chapter 40. This storyline introduces a new character, Reze or Bomb Girl, as Denji’s romantic interest.

As you guys have guessed, she’s another villain working for a high-ranking devil and was also teased at the end of episode 12. Naturally, she’s trouble, and Denji will pursue her regardless of knowing that.

Since the anime ended just a few days ago, there’s no information on another season. However, we all know that it will be renewed, and we’ll have it with us in no time.

The anime received a great response from the otaku community, and I hope it stays that way.
