After trending in several countries worldwide, fans from all over the world have now begun to create loads of fan art of the new character, Asa Mitaka.
Spoiler Alert: There are spoilers for Chainsaw Man Chapter 98 in this article.
If you dive into the Chainsaw Man tag on Twitter, you’ll be flooded with Asa Mitaka fanart. Here are some of the best examples:
So, who exactly is Asa Mitaka? From the looks of it, she is the main villain of this next arc.
Chapter 98 did not feature the protagonist, Denji. Instead, the super-sized chapter followed Asa Mitaka, an awkward and antisocial high school student. The events of the chapter start off tamely, but it soon escalates into violence.
This is supported by the fact that Asa Mitaka’s eyes look a lot like Makima’s by the end of the chapter.
Here’s some more fan art for good measure:
At first glance, Asa Mitaka may not seem all that unique in terms of looks. But the scars that she gets, and the “Makima eyes” help make her look more distinctive. It also helps that she had a memorable (and incredibly gory) moment in her first appearance as the War Devil.
Aside from creative fan art, some fans have even begun posting Asa Mitaka cosplays.
Even if there are still a lot of mysteries regarding the War Devil, there’s no doubt that Asa Mitaka is now a fan favorite, with lots of fans surely eager in anticipating the next chapter.
Chainsaw Man continues in Chapter 99 which will release on July 19.
