Synopsis

Denji has a simple dream—to live a happy and peaceful life, spending time with a girl he likes. This is a far cry from reality, however, as Denji is forced by the yakuza into killing devils in order to pay off his crushing debts. Using his pet devil Pochita as a weapon, he is ready to do anything for a bit of cash.

Unfortunately, he has outlived his usefulness and is murdered by a devil in contract with the yakuza. However, in an unexpected turn of events, Pochita merges with Denji's dead body and grants him the powers of a chainsaw devil. Now able to transform parts of his body into chainsaws, a revived Denji uses his new abilities to quickly and brutally dispatch his enemies. Catching the eye of the official devil hunters who arrive at the scene, he is offered work at the Public Safety Bureau as one of them. Now with the means to face even the toughest of enemies, Denji will stop at nothing to achieve his simple teenage dreams.

Preliminary (121/? eps)
"Chainsaw Man," or as I've lovingly dubbed it, "The Unholy Scripture of Heartfelt Gore and Unrequited Love," is nothing short of a revelation in the world of manga. It's as if someone took the concept of a shounen protagonist, handed them a chainsaw, and said, "Your heartbreak will now be powered by gasoline." This isn't just a story; it's an adrenaline-fueled, blood-spattered odyssey through the darker corners of the human (and devilish) condition, with a side of existential musings that you didn't know you needed until now.

At the heart of this beautifully chaotic symphony is Denji, a protagonist who redefines the term 'relatable.' Because who ...

Preliminary (1/? eps)
This manga 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 thrown into the frey gained traction. This phenomenon was fueled by the era's abundance of free-flowing money, where authors could capitalize 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. It's a strange ...
