Denji is robbed of a normal teenage life, left with nothing but his deadbeat father's overwhelming debt. His only companion is his pet, the chainsaw devil Pochita, with whom he slays devils for money that inevitably ends up in the yakuza's pockets. All Denji can do is dream of a good, simple life: one with delicious food and a beautiful girlfriend by his side. But an act of greedy betrayal by the yakuza leads to Denji's brutal, untimely death, crushing all hope of him ever achieving happiness.

Remarkably, an old contract allows Pochita to merge with the deceased Denji and bestow devil powers on him, changing him into a hybrid able to transform his body parts into chainsaws. Because Denji's new abilities pose a significant risk to society, the Public Safety Bureau's elite devil hunter Makima takes him in, letting him live as long as he obeys her command. Guided by the promise of a content life alongside an attractive woman, Denji devotes everything and fights with all his might to make his naive dreams a reality.

Chainsaw Man is a very surprising show. While it aired at a time when I had stopped watching anime, I still heard and saw a lot about it. Unless you've been living under a rock, it's impossible not to know about Power and Makima, they're literally everywhere online, but most people seem to be lusting over those girls for all the wrong reasons. Seeing people compare CSM to Demon Slayer and Jujutsu Kaisen, two animes I dropped because of how egregiously unrealistic and artificial their side characters felt, I never was very inclined to watch CSM, especially because of all the hype it got. I ...

Mixed Feelings
This anime is a very popular anime but it didn’t have me in the first episode. Honestly, I would have quit in the first episode because I thought it was unnecessarily gory for my enjoyment. Now don’t get me wrong, almost all of these action anime’s have blood and violence, but when I tell you this first episode was beating a dead horse on the gore, it made sure you had not doubt in your mind. Show has good potential and is definitely interesting, but I wouldn’t say its my cup of tea, but I guess to each their own. I would also say I ...

This anime is a true reflection of its era, specifically the 2010s, (this one in 2018) and what do I mean by that? It was a decade where the question of whether something should exist seemed to lose importance, as almost anything was thrown against the wall, stuck and it gained traction. This phenomenon was fueled by the abundance of free-flowing money, where authors were capitalizing on shock value to generate attention and revenue through social media overreactions.

However, as we transition into the 2020s, there's been a market correction. Consumers have grown weary of these superficial stories, realizing their lack of substance and intrinsic value ...
