Chainsaw Man has returned with a very twisted chapter that left us impatient for more. Here's all about Chainsaw Man Chapter 106, its release date, and any leaks!
In the latest chapter, Asa Mitaka doubts what she has heard causing the War Devil's ire, while Yuko reveals she's much more than a side character. So, what's next?
Chainsaw Man Overview and Chapter 105 Recap
In Chainsaw Man Chapter 105 Asa Mitaka and the War Devil fight about the new information they've just heard.
The War Devil thinks that Denji's confession needs to be investigated further, while Mitaka is convinced that Denji must be lying about being Chainsaw Man.
Hilariously, Denji's strategy or lack thereof works; even though he wants to scream to the world that he's Chainsaw Man, he does it so blatantly that people don't believe him.
Paradoxically, this attitude protects him for the moment, though he doesn't have much of a sense of self-preservation, so we aren't sure how long this will last.
The War Devil proposes driving a devil to the school in order to lure Chainsaw Man there.
Meanwhile, Asa goes to visit Yuko, who stays at home with a broken leg after their recent ordeal.
The two have what initially seems like an ordinary discussion about being each other's first friends. It all seems so mundane... then we're reminded that the manga is Chainsaw Man.
When Yuko suggests sharing secrets to come closer to each other, Mitaka shares an embarrassing anecdote from her childhood, challenging Yuko to also make some grand confessions. Which Yuko does.
This being the horror manga we know and love, Yuko doesn't admit to something silly she did as a kid. Instead, she tells Mitaka she killed her neighbor the day before, offering to show proof if Mitaka doesn't believe her.
As if that wasn't shocking enough, Yuko declares that she has made a contract with the Justice Devil, inspired at least partly by her wish to save Mitaka.
Yuko is also now able to read others, thus she's aware of Mitaka's contract with the War Devil, now known as Yoru.
In a twist we totally didn't see coming, Yuko tells Mitaka not to attend school the next day, promising to take care of her friend's bullying problem.
Fans expected many things of Yuko - many having to do with a possible romance between her and Mitaka - but we didn't quite expect her to cheerfully announce that she will massacre the whole school...
Or did she? Stay tuned to find out.

Chainsaw Man Chapter 106 Leaks
At the time of writing, there are no spoilers or leaks yet for Chainsaw Man Chapter 106.
Spoilers, such as raw scans and previews, might sometimes show up a few days before the official release and we'll update this space if we encounter any.
However, as the new chapter will be delayed by a week, we expect any leaks to make an appearance later than usual.
Chapter 105 was a real shock, as we found out that Yuko is actually a strong player, and an unbelievable wild card, rather than a side character that Mitaka needs to protect.

If anything, though, the newest chapter also demonstrates that, despite her cheerful and chill demeanor, Yuko has a violent streak she doesn't mind indulging.
Her confession that she killed her neighbor - and likely intends to do the same with Mitaka's bullies - is a bit chilling, and we had to read twice to make sure she's serious about all that.
But will her plan go smoothly? And can two girls who have contracts with different devils actually remain friends?
These are some of the questions we hope to see addressed in the next chapter.
Stay tuned for Chainsaw Man Chapter 106's release which coincides with the anime premiere!
