The first half of Episode 2 in Chainsaw Man should have gone to the muscle devil. It didn’t detract from the anime, though, and there’s a chance we’ll see it outside of Ending 3.

But it showed that Denji wasn’t blind to Makima and said she will kill him. And it touched on two forms of abuse.

If you’ve seen Chainsaw Man, you know it doesn’t shy away from violence, gore, or adult material. But the Muscle Devil arc took things in a darker direction.

What did we miss?

Little. The muscle devil was only in chapters 2-3 and he didn’t cause much trouble for Denji. MAPPA did an excellent job using dialogue to convey Makima’s intentions.

Denji still eats wet udon and barks quickly when around Makima. But I wish it was Muscle Devil’s turn in the anime.

Makima’s meal is almost ready when a man runs into the restaurant asking for help. His head is bleeding and he says a devil kidnapped his daughter.

Makima tells Denji to kill the devil because she doesn’t want her food to get soggy. Denji goes to the forest, but he is angry at how Makima is treating him.

He eventually finds the girl but the devil has a flower crown on his head and the girl begs Denji not to kill him. She claims her father beat her and that the devil saved her.

There are no signs of abuse on her, but there are indications that something is wrong. Denji doesn’t notice and reflects that Pochita was a good devil.

He can’t be the only one and asks her to run away with him. The muscle devil attaches to Denji’s arms, revealing that it was all a trap.

And now that he has Denji, he will kill him and “have fun with the female brat”. The Muscle Devil can control the muscles of any creature it touches, destroying one of Denji’s arms.

But it couldn’t stop him from pulling Pochita’s string and transforming! Denji carries the girl back to the restaurant and reveals that he loses blood from the transformation and he passes out.

Why was this cut made?

There are two theories about this. First, with only 12 episodes guaranteed at the time, it makes sense that MAPPA wanted to quickly introduce us to Aki and Power.

If The Muscle Devil had been adapted, it would have taken up the first half of the episode. And we wouldn’t have met Power until Episode 3.

Second, as graphic and dark as the anime Chainsaw Man is, child abuse should not be taken lightly. There is no evidence that the father abused her.

But there’s no doubt that the muscle devil wouldn’t let her die painlessly. There is a panel showing Makima and two devil hunters saying useless dogs will be killed.

And Denji understood why he was being told that. Makima will give him anything and everything in exchange for his obedience.

He can only say yes or woof. She doesn’t need dogs to say no.
