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.

This is the greatest shounen manga I've ever read. Bloody and brutal art, profound characters, serious with chaotic plot. I got into everything of this gem by "CHAINSAW". You know, Shounen Jump manga is known for friendship theme. But Chainsaw Man is unrelated to it in a good way. Extremely dark and mature style. Because Tatsuki Fujimoto has natural amazing talent. His thought and world-view are very fresh. He loves film and reflect his works. Chainsaw Man is no exception, too. We drawn into film-like writing of this manga. Let's talk about it.

Denji is an uncultivated MAN who never die. His personalities are simple. Enjoying read more

I hate reviews that start off with unnecessary prose, so let's skip all that and get to the meat of things!

Chainsaw Man is a story which thrives in its unexpectedness. It's a story that takes you for twists and turns in its plot and characterization, but most effectively in its subversion of shounen tropes which gives the story a far greater effect. It's a story that looks dumb as hell, with a protagonist who acts dumb as hell, with a goal that seems dumb as hell (touch some booooooooobs). But where Chainsaw Man gets you is that it anticipates your exhaustion with these tropes. It read more

*Non Spoiler Review*

Before writing this review, I would like thank Tatsuki Fujimoto for writing such exhilarating manga. Hats off to him!
I have been reading Chainsaw Man and Jujutsu Kaisen ever since December 2018. Prior to most reviewers, thus I think i am right person to interpret the series for you all. I finished Chainsaw Man about awhile ago, and i would admit I enjoyed it fullest.

Story: 9/10
The story was good but not too generic in my opinion. here is why please proceed with caution might have minor spoilers.
It's story about our typical Virgin lad "Denji" by the way he is a protagonist of this marvelous read more

(TLDR review at the bottom, as always, thanks in advance for reading)
(Major edit at the bottom lol)

If you told me to describe Chainsaw Man in one word I would grab the nearest megaphone and microphone, place the megaphone in between my mouth and the microphone, switch both devices on, and start screaming,
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH"

Yes. There the word 'madness' or 'chaos' doesn't even fit. The sound does a better job of explaining it. Chainsaw Man is mostly made up of death metal screaming moments and having not read anything close to this other than watching Dorohedoro and maybe reading some of Berserk, Attack on Titan, Akame ga Kill read more
