Chainsaw Man Chapter 156 recap

Chainsaw Man Chapter 156 opens with Denji awakening in a hospital room, noticing a helicopter and smoke outside. He calls out for Nayuta, only to find Hirofumi Yoshida in the room with him. Denji urgently asks about Nayuta's whereabouts, but Yoshida claims ignorance, stating Denji has been unconscious for a week. Yoshida reminds Denji of their deal regarding his transformation, expressing his inability to help Denji or Nayuta further due to breaking the rules.

As Yoshida leaves, Denji loses consciousness again, and Yoshida informs Fumiko Mifune and others outside that he administered a sedative. Mifune reveals Public Safety's intention to dismember Denji, prompting Denji to dream of telling Pochita that he must save Nayuta.

Pochita questions how Denji plans to save her without his legs, hinting at Denji's amputation while he is asleep in an operating room. The doctors proceed to amputate his remaining leg. A Special Division agent reveals their orders to kill Denji if he escapes and discloses their location in the Tokyo Devil Detention Center, indicating the difficulty of a rescue mission.


The chapter concludes with the appearance of an unknown, possibly female character outside the building, hinting at potential developments in the ongoing narrative.

Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for the release of Chapter 157 for the next thrilling chapter of Denji's story in Chainsaw Man.
