In the previous issue, Denji and Asa took their friendship to a new level, even seeming to enjoy one other’s presence. Denji has also begun to open more about his personal life with Nayuta, which is a very exciting step for any series fan.

Unfortunately, no confirmed spoilers exist for Chainsaw Man Chapter 117. Fans now have an official release date, which hopefully means the series will continue to serialize on a weekly basis.

Chapter 116 recap

In the previous issue, Asa and Denji formed a friendship by eating starfish together. Although she didn’t enjoy it, this was the beginning of their actual connecting, with Denji even remarking she reminded him of a buddy he used to have (likely Power).

In Chainsaw Man Chapter 116, Asa devised a strategy to rescue them from the aquarium, the last phases and outcomes of which fans may expect to witness in Chainsaw Man Chapter 117. The preceding issue laid the stage for Asa’s plot, which comprised her and Denji stealing money and amassing almost one million yen. Asa then “purchased” the aquarium and started transforming it into a weapon.

As previously said, the issue saw Denji finally speak up about his personal life with Nayuta. With Nayuta’s Part 2 appearance being something fans have been anticipating for quite some time, learning about her safety and Denji’s efforts to guarantee she lives a regular life was thrilling.

What to expect (speculative)

Chainsaw Man Chapter 117 will most likely reveal the outcome of Asa’s plan to transform the aquarium into the Aquarium Spear and whether or not it allows them to escape. The strategy is almost certainly doomed to fail. “Tripping and falling” at the worst possible time has been an important element of Asa’s character so far, and fans can anticipate it to play a role here as well.

However, if this is the case, it’s quite possible that the Eternity Devil will begin making his presence known in Chapter 117, whether freely or by force, as a result of Asa’s deeds. Depending on how far out in the open the Eternity Devil goes, readers may even watch it preparing for a rematch with Denji in the last minutes of the issue.

Another possibility for Chainsaw Man Chapter 117 is to reveal what Yoru, the War Devil, and Fami, the Famine Devil, have been talking about the whole time. While this is an unusual path for novelist and artist Tatsuki Fujimoto to take, it is still a possibility.
