Chainsaw Man is one of the weirder series you’ll encounter in your life, but that makes it so special and that is why this series has become so popular. The characters of Chainsaw Man are so interesting that they actually deserve more attention and that is what inspired this article. In this article, we are going to present a character from the first part of the manga who had a very small and temporary role, but still sparked our interest because he was quite intriguing. The character we are talking about is Yūtarō Kurose, a Devil Hunter from Kyoto, whose story we are going to tell in this article.
Yūtarō Kurose was a Devil Hunter from Kyoto. Not much is known about Kurose, who was implied to have been very skilled. He would get nervous around Makima and had a strong accent. He is known for having had a contract with the Punishment Devil, like Michiko, but the details are unknown and we cannot state anything else about this supporting character.
The rest of this article is going to focus on the character of Yūtarō Kurose and his role in the Chainsaw Man series. This intriguing character has been featured a lot in the first part of the manga, so we are going to bring you as many details as possible so that you know everything about the character. If you haven’t read the manga, we have to warn you that there are going to be spoilers present in this article.
Who is Yūtarō Kurose in Chainsaw Man?
The Gun Devil destroyed Kurose’s life, which inspired him to join Public Safety, but since he thought that it was impossible to kill it, he never actually tried to kill the Gun Devil personally, as Aki Hayakawa did. When Kurose and Tendo discovered Makima had been slain in a railway ambush, they were waiting for Makima’s arrival at a Kyoto station. While covered in blood, Makima steps off of the train unhurt.
Makima merely states that she wasn’t hit when the two question her whether she was hit by a bullet. Makima responds that they won’t make it there in time and will instead assist from their current location when Kurose asks if they should travel to Tokyo to assist the rest of the Special Division. Thirty prisoners serving life sentences or some worse form of punishment are requested to be borrowed by her from Kurose.
They accompany Makima to a neighboring shrine while she leads her assault on the terrorists while wearing blindfolds. Tendo responds to Kurose’s question about why they must be blindfolded by explaining that regular Devil Hunters are not permitted to know which Devils she has contracts with. When Makima is finished, she instructs the group to remove their blindfolds and says she will be going back to Tokyo.
When they go to Tokyo, Madoka welcomes them and gives Makima a message before quitting. Reminding Makima that they do not wish to become part of the Special Division and will just be present for one week to assist in training, Kurose and Tendo exchange anxious glances. Aki, who is recovering from his tough fight against the dangerous Katana Man, is waiting for Kurose and Tendo when they come to the hospital.
They introduced themselves and stated that they had come at Makima’s request to form Special Division 4 (SD4). Kurose tells Aki that because he switched sides with Devil Fox, he can no longer call upon him. He and Tendo make the decision to leave after observing Aki’s dedication and return the next day with documentation so Aki can secure a contract with a more powerful division.
Kurose tells Aki that someone else is waiting to meet him as they leave. Aki is guided by Kurose and Tendo to a prison for Devils run by Public Security. When Kurose inquires as to whether the woman who visited Aki in the hospital was his lover, the latter responds that she was merely his boyfriend’s younger sister who dropped by to deliver letters from Himeno.
When they get to the Future Devil’s jail, they discover that he has agreements with two other Public Safety Devil Hunters. After Aki strikes a bargain with the Future Devil, Kurose and Tendo dump him out by car and intend to explore the area before driving back to Kyoto. He talks to Aki about how silly it is to think of killing the Gun Devil and how annoying he finds Aki in the car, but he ends up throwing Aki a can of Coke and giving him one last bit of advice that everything in the special The Division is crazy so he should be careful.
As additional guardians for Denji, Kurose, Tendo, and another Devil Hunter named Subaru from Kyoto were called to Tokyo. Subaru inquires about Makima throughout the journey because they have previously met her, but Tendo is cut off before she can respond when a series of road spikes are hurled in front of her vehicle, forcing them to crash. Three Devil Hunters from the United States of America crash the windows of the car and kill Kurose, Tendo, and Subaru as Kurose wonders what caused them to crash. The Devil Hunters then imitate Kurose’s appearance using their agreement with the Skin Devil.
Kurose’s powers and contract
Not much is known about Kurose, who was implied to have been very skilled. He would get nervous around Makima and had a strong accent. He is known for having had a contract with the Punishment Devil, like Michiko, but the details are unknown and we cannot state anything else about this supporting character. The issue here is that while we do know his Devil, we know absolutely nothing about the Punishment Devil. We assume that he would punish Kurose’s opponents in some way, but the details of the contract remain unknown, as well as the overall level of Kurose’s skills in Chainsaw Man, although it has been implied, as we have said, that he was quite skilled.
