In the Chainsaw Man anime, we have come across a character named Denji who makes a pact with a chainsaw devil named Pochita by giving his blood.
Later on, the duo develops a bond with each other, and one day, when Denji dies at the hands of the Zombie devil, Pochita saves his friend by fusing himself with Denji.
After this fusion, Denji becomes a hybrid known as Chainsaw Man.
When Denji killed the Zombie devil, the public safety department led by Makima arrived at the spot.
Makima offered Denji to join her in the Public Safety Department and help the humans by eradicating devils (mainly Gun Devil), who insisted on killing humans and waging war.
It is not new that everyone who watches Chainsaw Man anime is aware of the fact that Denji is in love with Makima, but Makima, on the other hand, is obsessed with Pochita.
One of the questions that the fans have is why Makima is so obsessed with Chainsaw Man and Pochita and Why Pochita is so important in the whole Chainsaw Man storyline?
Well, we have the answers below. Please read through to know the details.
Why is Makima obsessed with Chainsaw Man? and Why Does Makima Want Pochita in Chainsaw Man?
Makima is so obsessed with Chainsaw Man and wants to be with Chainsaw Man that Makima is the number 1 fan of Pochita, aka Chainsaw Man, and she wants to be with Pochita and wants to live happily ever after.
She wants to be with Pochita at the end, but before that, she also wants to use Pochita’s powers to create a better world and erase all the devils from the world, including the Gun Devil (the most powerful one).
It is clear from the anime that almost everyone is after Denji’s hybrid heart after he was earlier killed and later Pochita fused with him.
Although many fans assume that Pochita is dead and not alive anymore, as revealed in the anime series, Pochita is still alive and is one with Denji.
He gave his heart to Denji to save him from dying because when Pochita needed saving, Denji helped him by giving him blood.
Also, before Denji died, he told Pochita that if he ever died in any of his assignments, then Pochita could take over his body.
But, Pochita thought of saving his friend instead of taking over his body because Pochita had always cared for Denji. The duo developed a deep bond when they used to work as devil hunters.
He loved listening to Denji’s dreams and ambitions, so to fulfil his friend’s purposes, Pochita fused with Denji.
Therefore Pochita is not actually dead.
He can easily communicate with Denji when needed and also can take over his body in certain cases.
Like when Pochita took over Denji’s body and made Kobeni his temporary girlfriend.
But Why does Makima want to be with Pochita?
Makima wants Pochita to take over Denji’s body and then use his powers to create a better world for the people, and once done, she wants to be with Pochita and live happily.
She doesn’t have any love for Denji. In contrast, Denji deeply cares about Makima, which we will also witness in Chainsaw Man anime much later when Denji eats Makima in his hybrid form and will be one with her.
After Makima’s death, he would take care of Nayuta (the reincarnation of Control Devil, i.e. Makima and Makima’s 7 pet dogs).
Also, Makima being Control Devil is unable to form any relationship or deep human connection with anyone. Hence that is the reason why she was unable to create any bonding with Denji and Pochita as well.
Why is Pochita so important?
Pochita’s powers might be unknown to some, but as per Makima, Pochita’s powers are unmatched in the Chainsaw Man anime.
Makima reveals in Chapter 84 of the manga that Pochita’s powers are unmatched in the Chainsaw Man universe. Most of the devils, including the Gun Devil, fear Chainsaw Man.
Chainsaw Man can wipe out almost every devil in the Chainsaw Man universe.
World War 2, nuclear weapon destructions and even Nature disasters were all erased by Pochita; now, people do not remember anything because these things were done by Pochita way back in time.
Makima knows all the powers of Pochita. Hence, that is why she wants to use Pochita’s powers to create a better world; therefore, she would need Pochita’s heart, which resides inside Denji.
The same is wanted by Gun Devil as well.
Most of the devils in the Chainsaw Man universe worship Pochita, including Makima; hence, she also agrees to get consumed by Denji.
