Chainsaw Man Chapter 103 has returned with a very self-referential episode. Here's all about Chainsaw Man Chapter 104, its release date, and any leaks!
In-universe, Denji has as many fans as he does in our world, though many would think him "too gory for kids" or even accuse him of stealing Devil Hunter's jobs.
One thing is certain; no one is indifferent to Chainsaw Man.
Chainsaw Man Overview and Chapter 103 Recap
Chapter 103 of Chainsaw Man is heavily self-referential and perhaps somewhat influenced by the manga's own fandom.
Lots of random passers-by are interviewed about Chainsaw Man, and their opinions are wildly different.
Many young people are obsessed with him, considering him to be something akin to a superhero. Others think that he's a bit too much for children - perhaps a nod to Chainsaw Man's age rating.
Some go so far as to accuse him of stealing Devil Hunters' jobs, while an interviewee claims that the Chainsaw Man doesn't exist at all and that it's all American propaganda.
Meanwhile, Denji is all too pleased about Chainsaw Man's fame and he thoroughly enjoys being in the spotlight to the point of nearly revealing his identity to the world.
Others, of course, would rather he did no such thing. Soon, Denji is approached by Hirofumi Yoshida who offers him food - a known way to get Denji to do one's bidding.
Denji doesn't recognize Yoshida and, of course, accepts the invitation and gets a whole cake, among other delicacies.
Denji confesses that he keeps acting as the Chainsaw Man because he enjoys fame and hopes that girls will fall for him if his identity is discovered.
Yoshida, who goes to the same school Denji now also attends, claims that his organization is working to keep Chainsaw Man's identity a secret to grant him a peaceful life.
Of course, the real reason behind Yoshida's interest is, for now, a secret, so we'll have to wait for the next chapter to hopefully discover more!
Fans have had interesting reactions to the newest chapter. One reader tweeted about how Denji visibly "wants to have his cake and eat it too." This can be read both literally and metaphorically.
Chainsaw Man likes to play with shonen anime conventions. In many cases, these boil down to the fact that heroes must not reveal their identity under no circumstances as this could create chaos.
But Denji isn't that hero. He wants to keep his superpowers AND live a normal life, which is going to make for an interesting conflict.

Chainsaw Man Chapter 104 Leaks
At the time of writing, there are no spoilers or leaks yet for Chainsaw Man Chapter 104.
Spoilers, such as raw scans and previews, might sometimes show up a few days before the official release.
However, as the new chapter will be delayed by a week, we expect any leaks to make an appearance later than usual.
Chapter 103 was mindblowing for fans, and any interest they already had in Yoshida has now skyrocketed - if the recent Twitter activity is any indication.
Charming as he might seem, it would be hard to believe that Yoshida's interest in Chainsaw Man is purely out of interest for Denji's wellbeing.

We expect the organization to bring additional troubles to Denji in one way or another. And how is Asa Mitaka going to come into the story? How will her arc be entwined with Denji's?
In any case, we would expect her to play some role in the next chapter, as her introduction in the previous chapters must have been important!
