Makima’s Terrifying Power is Revealed
Chainsaw Man episode nine follows up on last week’s mass execution event with some seriously scary revelations about Makima. Kobeni also gets a chance to show off when the chips are down. Also: why it’s important to wear pants on live stream, a very important reprint, and the top-selling manga of 2022!
