This series is so weird because it really feels like it is setting up a pretty standard shonen premise but takes a left turn pretty quickly since Denji is a loving moron.

The phrase "antemortem" doesn't exactly bode well for those characters.

I'd argue that someone with mind control powers would have the healthiest dynamics with someone she couldn't control.

This is a plot point in the comic series Mind MGMT by Matt Kindt which is about secret psychic organizations going to war. One of the main characters has a backstory where he's such a powerful psychic that his subconscious constantly biases everyone towards him. Obviously this leaves him completely unable to trust anyone's motivations, including his own wife and child.

I'm guessing the fire devil is both a primal fear and is just the guy from fire punch.

If someone likes Chainsaw Man I would definitely recommend Fire Punch just with the warning that Fire Punch is MUCH MORE depressing and hosed up than Chainsaw Man. There's still some levity like a character that's obsessed with old action movies and yes, the motivation of one of the series' main villains involves Star Wars but there's a lot of bad stuff happening to a lot of characters.

Fire Punch also had the whole thing where it was never keeping a status quo for very long so you end up with stuff like Agni's cult setting up in the village and it just kind of falls to the wayside pretty quickly since he ends up killing most of them.

I don't like how unbothered Makima still is. Not sure if that's due to her nature as Control devil, but it just feels horribly like this is all as expected. Perhaps according to keikaku...

Have we actually ever seen her display real emotion other than at the movie theater?

kobeni is a cosmic anomaly because it is so wildly improbable that she survives any given day.

She's a really, really good fighter. She just never actually wants to fight.

She has a contract with the "Secret" Devil because, you know, people are terrified of secrets.

The Shonen Jump app only does things that are Viz's "T/T+" rating but the website goes up to "M." So you can't use the app to read stuff like Hell's Paradise: Jigokuraku, Golden Kamuy or Fire Punch. I assume this is a restriction mostly so they don't get hassled by Apple/Google. The "M" stuff also doesn't let you read the first/last three chapters for free unless you sign up for an account.

Holdup, holdup, so theres entire other series that I can read if I just go to the website and log in instead of using the app?

This makes it sound like you haven't read Fire Punch, which means you should read Fire Punch.

We might get something for the anime on June 27th as that is when MAPPA is doing a special 10th anniversary event with a section on Chainsaw Man.
