Saitama Chainsaw Shoujo is about a girl who got bumped by her boyfriend and then decides to commit a massacre in her school in order to kill him. And she will use a chainsaw to do so.
It’s pretty much like Columbine but with a chainsaw.

What bothered me with the story is that, Saitama didn’t have a real strong reason to commit such massacre.
Of course she’s shy and doesn’t have a lot of friends. But still I don’t think that justified such massacre and I was expecting some revelations about an obscure past or something like this.

This said, others characters attitude were really… read more

Interesting manga.
This is a very surreal manga, right from the start, with a psychic friend telling the main character (Fumio) they were linked to the past. This part was not properly explained.

Gore, horror, tons of unexplained stuff, action scenes similar to Highschool of the Dead (beginning few chapters, remember?).

Story:5
The story started off weird, with a psychic friend. Then a transfer student came and something strange happened with Fumio's bf. Then The psychic friend (Kaoruko) foretold that something was weird with the transfer student. Then Kaoruko became strange as well. Lol.

What was surprising too was the decision to cut down her bf in school. Lol. read more

I feel like the majority of people who read this manga go in expecting something that this manga is not. I feel like they expect this manga to take itself seriously because of the (rather mild) gore scenes. Please don't read Saitama Chainsaw Shoujo expecting a serious story! This manga isn't quite a parody, but it is a manga that I consider to be comical. I feel like that was the intention of the mangaka; just to make something that - despite bloody murder - is humorous and lighthearted.

I was a little disappointed by the story behind this manga which had actually started out so very well. A story about a jilted girl with a chainsaw at school instantly gravitated me towards the manga and while I thought I could figure out how it would end, I was wrong. Usually I would say an unpredictable ending is a good thing and yet in this case, the ending felt disjointed and out of place as though two different people had written separate halves of the story and then stuck them together at the last night.

Story - 4/10

The story behind this manga is probably read more
