Chainsaw Man Season 1 Ending Explained
In Chainsaw Man Season 1, climax Aki confronts Akane Sawatari, and the latter spawns the Ghost Devil to fight Aki.
The Future Devil, which resides in Aki’s right eye, insists Aki use his powers, but Aki then ignores the Future Devil and tries to fight Akane with just the curse devil’s sword.
But later on, The Ghost Devil grabbed Aki by his neck and tightened her grip, and it seemed like Aki was about to pass out.
But Aki doesn’t pass out and survives; instead, The Ghost Devil does not kill Aki, drops him on the ground, and offers him a cigarette, similar to what Himenoused to do.
Aki then recalls the final moments with Himeno when she had told him that Ghost Devil could sense fear.
Therefore Aki follows Himeno’s advice and stops fearing the Ghost Devil, which allows Aki climbs up to her body and lets him decapitate her head using his sword.
The reason why Akiwould do that easily is that Ghost devil lacks a sense of smell.
She only perceives fear of attacking opponents as Aki would stop feeling any fear. At that point, he would easily climb through her body and kill her.
As Aki defeats the Ghost Devil, he gets hold of Akane Sawatari, but Kobeni already has Akane by putting a knife in her throat.
As per Makima’sorders, they needed Akane and Kantana Man (Samurai Sword) alive to bring them for interrogation so that the department could retrieve more information on Gun Devil, but Akane already had a contract with Gun Devil if she is unsuccessful in her mission she would be killed by the Snake Devil, therefore as per her last resort, she committed suicide, and The Snake devil kills her on the spot.
Shortly before Akane’s death, Makimaalso managed to secure Akane’s contract with the Snake Devil and took control of Snake Devil.
On the other hand, Kantana Man and Denjiconfronted each other, and both fought one another, throwing each other through buildings, rooftops, and trains.
Kantana Man, just like in the previous fight, had the upper hand as he sliced both of Chainsaw Man’s hands.
Kantana Man then proceeded with his final attack to kill Chainsaw Man, but Chainsaw Man, this time, summons chainsaws through his legs and cuts Kantana Man’s body in half.
After that, Denji brings Kantana Man back to his human form and takes him into custody, but before the Police come to take Kantana Man away, both Denji and Aki decide in memory of Himeno they would kick Samurai Sword’s private part with all their strength and whoever manages to get the painful scream out of him would win a bet.
Aki and Denji finally get their revenge on Kantana Man, and they kick Kantana Man in the private part with their full strength to make him suffer.
