What is Chainsaw Man?
Let me start of by saying this is NOT your typical Shonen. Do not expect a light hearted adventure full of friendship. This is not One Piece or Naruto folks. Get ready for a grotesque, violent, and raunchy story featuring your favorite devil, Chainsaw Man.
The manga is full of uncensored gore and edgy humor that will make you question what the hell you are reading. At the same time you are laughing and amazed at this unique and fresh new story.
Chainsaw Man Universe
Chainsaw man takes place in a version of our world where devils run rampant, they are manifestations of human fears, and while most of the devils roam around and cause chaos, some of them form pacts with humans so they can gain their powers and aid them in their fights against other devils.
The Devil Hunters are individuals who, you guessed it Hunt Down Devils as their job, and they get paid handsomely for it. All devils have names that correlate to something in the world, for example there are chainsaws, and a chainsaw devil. The strength of the devil comes from the fear that their name incites around the world. It makes for a pretty unique power and level system within Chainsaw Mans universe.
The main character is Denji a young man who is burdened with debts left by his family who have died. He lives in extreme poverty and would do any job offered to him in order to pay off the debts to the Yakuza. After being left in the streets for dead he came across a superpowered devil dog named Pochita.
The two team up to take on the dangerous profession of devil hunting to acquire the most money that possibly can. However after being double crossed by the Yakuza, Denji is killed, but his friend Pochita the Devil of Chainsaws makes a contract with him to merge and replace himself with Denjis heart transom ring him into chainsaw main.
Thanks to his compassion and kindness Denji created a strong bond with his companion, and in doing so it saved his life. After merging with Pochita, he caught the eye of the public safety Devil Hunter Makima, who offers him anything he wants, if he promises to hunt devils for her. Although she treats him like her personal dog, Denji was finally giving a purpose in life.
He is teamed up with Aki Hatakawa, a cold and stoic devil hunter, and Power, a violent blood thirsty fiend. The story continues as Denji and his new friends team up to take down devils.
