Chainsaw Man is known for two things; its transgressive nature, and its cast. But where are Chainsaw Man Part 1's stars in Part 2 of the manga?
Which Part 1 Characters Can We Expect in Chainsaw Man Part 2?
Part 1 of the Chainsaw Man manga notoriously killed most of its main cast other than Denji. Apart from Yoshida (who already plays a major role in Part 2), other characters of interest would be Kobeni and Kishibe.
Power's last words to Denji gave us a glimmer of hope that she might appear, too, in some form.
However, Power's return would be a bit more complicated, and it would probably require Denji to travel to Hell.
On the other hand, Kobeni and Kishibe, both of whom had cool moments in Season 1 of the anime, are presumably still in town. But what are they up to?
Where Is Kobeni in Chainsaw Man Part 2?
Despite having been back for over a year now, Chainsaw Man Part 2 is still silent about Kobeni's whereabouts.
The last time we saw her, she'd left Public Safety to work in a diner.
Undoubtedly, she had hoped that her new job would be low risk compared to Devil Hunting.
A chance encounter with Denji, however, leads to an absurd situation in which Kobeni must dance for her life!
It's unclear if she continued working in the diner after her ordeal—perhaps she would wish to run as far from her former colleagues as possible.
While this hasn't been confirmed, it's very likely that one of Kobeni's siblings has actually appeared in Part 2.
During the second Eternity Devil arc in the aquarium, a member of the Devil Hunter club looks just like Kobeni, with identical hair clips and a similar nervous demeanor.
So far, the similarity hasn't been officially commented upon.
Given the sheer number of deaths in the Public Safety arc, we'd love to see Kobeni manage to go to college and lead a more fulfilling life.
Alternatively, it would be cool to see her in Fami's presence, since they both love food so much!
If she does appear, we'll hopefully find out more about Kobeni's secret Devil contract.

Where Is Kishibe in Chainsaw Man Part 2?
Kishibe, who trained Denji and Power in Season 1 of the anime, is another character who miraculously survived the Public Safety arc.
But his whereabouts in Part 2 of the shounen manga remain mysterious.
During the traumatizing final chapters of Part 1, Kishibe was a source of support for Denji.
He was the one to locate Nayuta, the Control Devil's reincarnation, and we were under the impression that he'd help Denji raise her.
Presumably, he's still part of Denji and Nayuta's life, but he's possibly busy with other things, such as reconstructing an anti-Devil organization.
Either way, we'd love to see him be a dad to Denji.
