Usually, the last cover a series gets in Jump, assuming it's lucky enough to survive to get multiple covers, is for the second to last chapter, when things are hitting a climax and the narrative is nearing its final resolution.

Chainsaw Man's last cover was for Family Burger.

Honestly?

That feels pretty on-brand.

Also, Fujimoto did a picture released after the stream to thank people for supporting Chainsaw Man.



(There's debate online as to the identity of the woman walking away. Looks like Makima with her hair down to me, but there's other schools of thought on the topic.)

Did they ever explain what happened with the prisoners that could be sacrificed to autokill anyone and why everyone else had to be blind folded and what contract that was or was it just one of her random powers? I feel like I missed some stuff sometimes.

I also don't really get how "control devil" equates to "finger guns"

I think a lot of Makima's powers (like the finger guns) came from taking control of people who had contracted with other devils. The character poll has a punishment devil in it (if my browsers autotranslate is right), which might be the one for the prisoner sacrifice.

Punishment devil is tendous and she used it. Itís mentioned during the gun devil face off

Does she have finger guns in the final volume because she's stolen the Gun Devil's powers at that point? Does she use it earlier?

It's heavily implied she used the finger guns during the train ambush, based on how the bodies of the attackers turn out.

I assumed at the time she somehow mirrored her own injuries or sent the bullets back at her attacks but yeah, that'd make sense. Since they already had Gun Devil pieces maybe she could use some gun powers?

I always had the pet theory that she had always controlled the gun devil to try to get the chainsaw devil into the open. It would explain why it showed up when it did, why she would have been given such a strong roll if humans didn't know she controlled it, and would give her the finger guns as well.

Except that she said, to people she had no reason to lie to, that how things went was basically the worst acceptable case, which would be odd if she'd been controlling the whole script.

(We also know that Makima was only middle management when the series started. Again, odd if she had the hole card from the beginning.)

In traditional depictions of the four horsemen, Conquest is depicted with a bow, which also might cover the finger guns. (Pointing let her hit Darkness pretty hard, after all.)

I'm pretty sure that the Control Devil is just commanding people to be injured. They may be finger guns, but they have the authority of real guns.

makima could be in charge of pretty much anything she wanted. so, being middle management was a deliberate choice.

She was scared of her bosses at the start. I think the risk of voiding the contract at least kept her from making her play until she knew where the Chainsaw was.

Then again, maybe Makima was just taking the Hol Horse view. After all, the midterm results for the poll put her in second place again.

Not at the moment. It's Aki, Makima, Denji, Power, Reze, Yoshida, Angel, Himeno, Pochita, and Kobeni. In that order.

Well yeah that makes sense how she used them to spy on people and stuff, but I don't get how she just materialized out of a giant pile of them when Reze was going back to meet Denji.

Makima's conquest, which in some interpretations of the four horsemen becomes pestilence. That fits with controlling rats.
