The next contains spoilers for Chainsaw Man Chapter 124, “Soup,” by Tatsuki Fujimoto, Amanda Haley and Sabrina Heep, available these days in British via Viz Media.
Tatsuki Fujimoto has snuck in another film reference into Chainsaw Man, this time around of the terrible scene from A Clockwork Orange.
Chainsaw Man released Chapter 124, “Soup,” on March 28, following directly after the occasions of Chapter 123, where it introduced the Falling Demon. While a lot of the chapter concentrates on the connection between Yoru and Asa and, particularly, how Yoru appears to become showing concern on her human vessel, the Falling Demon has another thing on her behalf plate particularly, an individual that has his eyes clamped open. Based on Cirilo (@/Cirilolebeau), mangaka Fujimoto is clearly having to pay homage for an legendary scene in A Clockwork Orange.
Chainsaw Man’s Clockwork Orange Reference
Within the chapter, a bald man has his arms forcefully crisscrossed and palms face-lower on the cart, his legs converted into a grotesque makeshift table to hold a dish full of “a potage produced from the ears, tongue and nose of the Demon Hunter who attempted to search” the Falling Demon. Any protests the person may have made about his circumstance are stop, using the Demon getting stitched his lips crudely shut. Eyes forced open and bulging, he’s met with the view of a massive earthworm-like Demon feasting on humans, who already seeks his next meal.
Released in 1971, A Clockwork Orange is really a dystopian crime film created and directed by broadly-celebrated director Stanley Kubrick. According to Anthony Burgess’s novel of the identical name, the show follows Alex DeLarge, a gang leader caught through the government bodies for committing amoral crimes. In order to rehabilitate him, the federal government subjects Alex to condition-backed aversion therapy known as the Ludovico Technique. Chainsaw Man‘s Chapter 124 references the scene where Alex has his braches shackled by a seat together with his eyes forced open as he’s injected with drugs as you’re watching films full of sex and violence. Simultaneously, Beethoven’s music, his favorite composer, plays without anyone’s knowledge.
Chainsaw Man Creator’s Passion for Movies
Fujimoto’s passion for the cinema is apparent in Chainsaw Man as numerous fans noted the Falling Devil’s chef persona seems to reference Recption Menus, that the mangaka formerly suggested to fans. Makima, the antagonist of Part 1, continues to be open about her passion for movies. The anime adaptation, created by MAPPA, also threaded numerous film references within the opening, for example The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, The Large Lebowski and Constantine. Certainly one of Fujimoto’s one-shots, Goodbye, Eri, featured a protagonist who produced a film about his mother’s dying.
The following chapter of Chainsaw Man can come on April 4, where fans can see it via Viz Media.
