How Tall is Aki? 2 Things About the Devil Hunter’s Height

Chainsaw Man has a very interesting cast. Written by Tatsuki Fujimoto, we are thrust into this alternate timeline. Starting from 1997, we follow the adventures of Denji and his friends as they rid of the world of hostile Devils. It has been 2 years since the conclusion of Part 1. Yet, fans still discover new things about the series. With the anime’s release, people would be clamoring to know more.

Unfortunately, vague is the name of the game. Tatsuki Fujimoto has never once described his characters in detail. He let their appearances do the talking for him which sparked a few debates. For example, characters’ ages are often put into question. With the anime coming out, it might be time for the author to finalize some details. Until then, here is what we know about Hayakawa Aki’s height. Until then, let us try to answer the question: how tall is Aki?

How Tall is Aki from Chainsaw Man?

While it has already been established that Aki is between 19 to 20 years old, his height hasn’t been. Not in a single chapter in the series did we discover how tall any of the characters are. This leaves us to theorize about how tall they are for the most part.

We can at the very least confirm that Aki is taller than Makima and Denji, and easily towers over most of his team. Early concepts state that he is at least 6 feet and 2 inches tall.

How Tall is Aki in Chainsaw Man’s Early Concept?

Thankfully, we have a benchmark. We can thank Twitter user D_Mukii for this. Without them, this wouldn’t have been possible. The concept art of three of Chainsaw Man’s characters was displayed at an exhibition in France. One of those characters is Hayakawa Aki whose height is written on paper.

Aki’s early concept put him at 190cm or 6 feet and 2 inches. In here, we also see Makima’s height. The latter stands at 173cm or 5 feet and 7 inches. This is important because it allows us to compare their height in the canon.

How Tall is Aki in Chainsaw Man’s Manga?

While we do not have any clear indication of their height, Chapter 3 show that the concept above has changed. Makima now barely reaches above Aki’s shoulder when the concept art placed her firmly near his ear. Further chapters support this as seen in Chapters 75 and 76. Two scenes of Makima and Aki standing next to each other are drawn and we can see a clear height difference. From this, we can try to approximate Aki’s height.

If we work from the idea that Makima’s height hasn’t changed, then this makes things easier. By using a visual graph, we can quickly determine Aki’s height. For this example, I used Foxlee’s metric chart for character height. After placing Makima within 173cm, I then scaled Aki according to his height in the series. I used Chapter 76 as my basis.

From here, we can conclude that Aki’s height is likely in the range of 195cm to 198cm. This makes him at least 2 inches taller than the concept art.
