Shonen Jump has officially started the serialization of Part 2 of the Chainsaw Man manga, with the author and illustrator Tatsuki Fujimoto adding a twist to the horror-comedy story. While the first part focused on Denji and his turbulent life as the Chainsaw Man, the second part introduces a new protagonist, Asa Mitaka, who is an introverted high school student who detests devils, small talk, and group activities. In this guide, you’ll get to know who is Asa Mitaka in Chainsaw Man 2, the personality of Asa Mitaka, and more.
Who is Asa Mitaka in Chainsaw Man 2?
Asa Mitaka is the protagonist of Chainsaw Man Part 2. After the events of the Public Safety arc, the character is residing in a world where people have an interest in devils, sentient creatures that manifest from human fears. Asa Mitaka distances herself from her high school class when their teacher brings a Chicken Devil named Bucky. Asa initially hates the harmless pet since her parents were eaten by a devil.
There is a War Devil that reassembles Asa’s body and forms scars on the student’s face. The devil can create weapons out of anything that it touches. After turning Tanaka’s spine into a sword, it kills the Justice Devil using a grenade made out of the opponent’s hand.
Fujimoto hasn’t clarified if Asa is a fiend or a hybrid. However, chapter 99 does mention that she can have her own consciousness because the War Devil left half of her brain intact. The War Devil claimed her body as she goes to the same high school as Chainsaw Man as its main target. With the War Devil promising to give back Asa’s body once they defeat the Chainsaw Man, the student signs up for the Devil Hunter club as they look to find the vigilante devil.
The personality of Asa Mitaka
Asa Mitaka is initially unsociable and lonesome but shows a more joyous side once she is briefly accepted by Bucky and her classmates. After she merged with the War Devil, Asa becomes a bit more self-aware and vocal about what she wants and has to do. Instead of just going along with the devil’s chaotic behavior, she stands her ground and denies requests as she looks to reclaim her regular life.
