In Chainsaw Man Chapter 169, we can expect the group to finally settle at Sushishi, where the group will likely notice the tension between Asa and Denji as they process their recent interactions. Asa may continue to confront Yoru about her behavior.

Denji, still reeling from the kiss, may grapple with his feelings and confusion. Given Yoru’s last words to Denji, he may eventually find out about Yoru and Asa being in the same body. Meanwhile, Fami's broader plans involving Denji and Nayuta could become clearer in Chainsaw Man Chapter 169.

Chainsaw Man Chapter 168 recap

Chainsaw Man Chapter 168 opens with War Devil Yoru, who has taken over Asa's body, looking down at her hand in shock and disgust. She calls it gross and washes her hands in a nearby puddle, explaining to Denji that she kissed him because it felt good. This snaps Denji out of his trance, and he asks why she kissed him.

Yoru repeats her response, yelling, then kisses him again. When Denji asks if she likes him, Yoru denies it, explaining that the "other" her liked him, and those feelings flowed into her own. Denji remains silent, and Yoru tells him to eat before they fight as she walks away.

Denji sits in the alley, clearly confused and hurt by what happened. The focus then shifts to Yoru as she leaves the alley. Asa takes some control of her body back and attacks Yoru in Chainsaw Man Chapter 168. Yoru tries to explain that she only kissed Denji because she sensed they had done so before and wanted to confirm it.


Asa berates her for making Denji think she's easy and begins to cry but stops herself, saying she is too hungry for this. The next scene depicts Denji and Asa seemingly just waking up as they stare in front of them with mouths agape on the train, clearly filled with confusion and emotional turmoil. Chainsaw Man Chapter 168 ends with the group arriving at Sushishi.
