Chainsaw Man Chapter 130: Release Date

Chainsaw Man Chapter 130: Release Date

Chainsaw Man Chapter 130 is scheduled to release on Wednesday, May 24, 2023, at 12 PM JST. Following what was certainly an unexpected glitch in Chapter 129, the series is going to take a week-long hiatus for an unspecified reason.

Although fans are eager to find out what might be in store for them in the next episode, there are no verifiable spoilers for Chainsaw Man Chapter 130 and beyond as of this writing. What fans have for now is confirmation of the release of Chainsaw Man Chapter 130, which should be available in a few days.

Chainsaw Man Chapter 130 will be released after a one-week hiatus.

Release date and time, where to read

Chainsaw Man Chapter 130 will be released on Wednesday, May 24, 2023, at 12 PM JST. For most international audiences, that means a local daytime release on Tuesday, May 23, 2023. A select few international readers will see the issue release in the wee hours of Wednesday, May 24, 2023, like Japanese readers.

Fans can read the issue on Viz Media’s official website, Shueisha’s MANGAPlus service, or Shueisha’s Shonen Jump+ app. The first two are free services that allow readers to access the first and last three issues of a series. The latter is a paid, subscription-based service that gives readers access to an entire series.

Chapter 129 Recap

Chainsaw Man Chapter 129 begins with Denji and Fakesaw Man standing opposite each other as Asa regains consciousness and recognizes both men as Chainsaw Men. The pair then return to the streets of Tokyo, where Denji appears to have been fatally injured during their escape. War Devil Yoru then tries to convince Asa to kill Chainsaw Man here, if he gets the chance.

However, Asa decided to save Denji instead, saying seeing someone like Chainsaw Man allowed to live gives her hope that she too can live and be happy. After giving Denji his blood, he saved her and him from what appeared to be the appendages of the caterpillar demon seen in Chapter 124.

They then continued to flee from these attacks and eventually found a motorcycle to steal. However, after Denji hilariously refuses to steal it because a woman was driving it, Asa pointed to one that was driven by a man, and Denji stole it. Asa then used his weapon powers to transform her into a Chainsaw Man-themed motorcycle, complete with a chainsaw on the front, at the end of the issue.

What to expect

Chainsaw Man Chapter 130 should continue to focus on the new dynamic duo formed by Asa and Chainsaw Man. With Fujimoto deciding to separate them from the Fakesaw Man vs. Falling Devil clash in Hell, it seems only natural that the next chapter would go that route.

While fans may get a glimpse of the slit saw man’s fight against the Falling Devil, it’s unlikely to be the main focus of the chapter. Fans can instead expect these two to be the highlight of subsequent issues, likely to wrap up the arc once Denji and Asa reach sunrise. Likewise, fans should also find out at the end of the arc why sunrise is the magical time to arrive at
