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!
Crazy and Original
You know when you learn something about Nihonjin/Japanese people and think: “wow, what a completely beautiful and insane way to look at the world!”. This manga is sort of like that. It’s horrible and endearing and creepy and funny at the same time.
(Why chainsaws? I’m an artist with a chainsaw!!)
I saw this in a compilation of best reads for 2020 and I was so surprised to see this style of comic be there but nonetheless I gave it a try. I have friends that love these type of genres (manga) so I read it and instantly fell in love and could see why it was critically acclaimed.
Loved the story so far interested to see where it goes!
