Chainsaw Man has emerged as one of the most popular anime of the Fall 2022 season. Even before the anime was released, there was a lot of hype around it, thanks to the vogue of Tatsuki Fujimoto’s ongoing manga series that has sold over 20 million copies worldwide as of November 2022. Apart from its mind-boggling action scenes, the show is well-known in the anime world because of its unconventional characters, all of whom have amassed their own shares of fans in just a few weeks. Now there is a lot of discussion about these characters and the question that keeps getting debated online is the age of all the characters. In case you have the same curiosity then you have come to the right place. 

How Old is Denji?

Denji is the eccentric protagonist of the Chainsaw Man who has a tough childhood and is forced to pay the debt incurred by his father following his death. Financial hardships distort his worldview to the point that he dreams about just eating bread with jam- something that would not be considered a privilege by most people in the modern world. But thanks to Pochita’s sacrifice he turns into a human-devil hybrid who is then employed as a Public Safety Devil Hunter. While his personal trials may make it seem that Denji is quite old, it turns out that he is just 16 years old at the time he meets Makima. 

How Old is Aki?

Aki is Denji’s roommate and colleague who despite their differences appears to care deeply about the eccentric protagonist of the Chainsaw Man. After losing his family when the Gun Devil first appeared, Aki decided to dedicate his life to killing the monster one day which led him to join the Public Safety Devil Hunter. The stoic young man is three years Denji’s senior according to Makima. However, his age is never confirmed in the manga or the anime so far. But according to reasonable estimates based on the information that we have of him, Aki is most likely 19 or 20 years old. 

How Old is Himeno?

Himeno is an experienced Public Devil Hunter who has been in the business for several years now and has lost quite a few close allies so far. She met Aki when he was just a rookie and had joined the organization with the plan to someday make the Gun Devil pay for the death of his family. Like Aki, Himeno’s age is never mentioned in Tatsuki Fujimoto’s manga as well as the anime. But to make matters worse, there is no concrete statement made about her, so the only way to make an estimate is to rely on her seniority in reference to Aki, whose age is somewhere around 19-20. Since Himeno was working as a Public Safety Devil Hunter for a few years when she met Aki, she could be anywhere between 22 to 26 years old. 

How Old is Kobeni?

Kobeni comes from an abusive family which forced her to choose between prostitution and becoming a Public Hunter, so that she can bring some money home. She has a brother, whose college tuition she helps pay, while she also has several sisters. As far as her age is concerned, she has herself confirmed that she is twenty years old. 

How Old is Arai?

Much like Kobeni, Arai also confirms during the welcome party that he is twenty-two years old. 

How Old is Makima?

Makima is one of the most mysterious characters in Chainsaw Man as nothing is ever revealed about her past, her family, or her powers. This remains true when it comes to her age which is never mentioned in the manga or the anime. But based purely on her physical appearance, it appears that she is most-likely in her mid-twenties.
