You don’t often read a manga and stop to think: “I’m really enjoying this. Is there something wrong with me?!” Chainsaw Man manga is not your average Shonen Jump series. Sure, it’s darker and more violent than a lot of the series that make up the imprint, but it’s not just that. This series is weird! If you’ve read Fujimoto Sensei’s previous series Fire Punch, you’ll know a little bit about what to expect. And while Chainsaw Man does tone down some things from that insane series, it’s still not a stroll in the park. Well, unless it’s a park filled with severed limbs and gruesome monsters.
The story of this top manga starts simple enough. Denji is a young man in a terrible situation. He’s broke and has to hunt monsters called Devils just to barely make ends meet. Luckily, he has a chainsaw dog devil named Pochita to help him. However, when Denji is killed, Pochita gives up his life to save him. And when Denji wakes up, he is now Chainsaw Man! We then see Denji use his new powers as a member of a Devil Extermination Team, where he fights more and more powerful devils. But what really makes this series stand out is the humor and the characters. Those two aspects help balance a series that can often be very bleak. Here are some of the highlights from volume 1!
Chainsaw Man manga, Tatsuki Fujimoto‘s wildly popular and bloodily ultraviolent manga series, ended with its final chapter this week but turned out to be just the end of “Part One: Public Safety Arc.” There will be a sequel series coming in the new year.
“Denji’s a poor young man who’ll do anything for money, even hunting down devils with his pet devil-dog Pochita. He’s a simple man with simple dreams, drowning under a mountain of debt. But his sad life gets turned upside down one day when he’s betrayed by someone he trusts. Now with the power of a devil inside him, Denji’s become a whole new man—Chainsaw Man!”

Most Shonen Jump (shounen jump) main characters want to be the strongest pirate/ninja/wizard/volleyball player in the world, but not Denji! He just wants to touch a boob. The truth is, Denji has had such a miserable life that he just wants to do normal things. That’s all he needs to be happy. Unfortunately, it’s not easy being Denji…

Denji soon teams up with Aki and Power. Aki is a senior Devil Hunter who Denji immediately starts off on the wrong foot with. And Power…well, this Blood Fiend has some serious issues. Trusting her might be a big mistake. Can Denji get along with his new teammates long enough to achieve his goals?
Chainsaw Man has some interesting world-building. Human fears manifest into monsters called Devils. The scarier the thing or concept, the stronger the devil connected to it is.

We have yet to learn about just when the anime of Chainsaw Man will hit the small screen, but rest assured, the adaptation has a lot to live up to with the insane battles that have taken place in the first installment of the manga.
Chainsaw Man (Chainsaw Man manga)is getting an anime adaptation from Studio MAPPA, the animation house responsible for the final season of Attack On Titan, The God of High School, and Jujutsu Kaisen, and we recently took the opportunity to read through the manga to not only get up to date on events but break down why we have absolutely fallen in love with the misadventures of Denji and his fellow Devil Hunters. Released as a part of Weekly Shonen Jump in the winter of 2018, the story mixes brutal violence and complicated characters to become an emerging force in the world of anime.
Denji Is Perhaps The Most Original Shonen Protagonist
Denji is a crazy protagonist for a crazy world, who acts as the titular Chainsaw Man following a fusion between himself and his devil dog, Pochita. What makes Denji unique isn’t simply his ability to blast forth chainsaws from his head and extremities, but the fact that he isn’t searching for the next great battle or seeking to save the world, but rather, simply wants three meals a day and a place to sleep. First introduced as a sixteen-year-old employed by the mob as a hitman, Denji’s naivete and simple desires make for some truly stark contrasts to the horrors sneaking around the corners of the world.
The monsters of this universe created by Tatsuki Fujimoto all have the ability to create Faustian pacts with humans, which is how the Devil Hunters all get their powers. The sheer majority of them are evil, looking to ingest humans or simply watch a tragedy befall those with who they make pacts, with the Public Safety Devil Hunters seeking to take down the Gun Devil, the most powerful force in the world that shatters entire nations with its power. Imagine if every character in Naruto had a Nine-Tailed Fox inside of themselves and it couldn’t be tamed.
Expect The Unexpected
has a solid enough beginning, slowly introducing us to Denji and breaking down how exactly he becomes the titular character, but it’s when he becomes a part of the Public Safety Commission of Devil Hunters that everything truly begins to ratchet up. The series is not shy about killing off characters and drastically changing the power sets of others, always keeping readers on their toes and we honestly can’t wait to see how these events are displayed in the upcoming anime series from MAPPA. The revelations and deaths run rampant in Chainsaw Man and they keep the story fresh and hard-hitting throughout. Chainsaw Man
as a whole. The Devils themselves can sometimes be massive and cause untold levels of destruction that can tear entire cities apart in their wake, but with the Devil Hunters attempting to sometimes enjoy some downtime, it manages to also give us one of the best “slice of life” stories we’ve seen in a manga in some time.
