Chainsaw Man is finally going to come out. The anime has finally hacked its way onto our screens, giving us our first look at Denji, who was brought back from the dead as a demon with the ability to turn his head into a chainsaw. His voice is done by Kikunosuke Toya.
Fans of the Japanese studio MAPPA’s previous work, such as Attack on Titan and the Tatsuki Fujimoto manga it’s based on, are very excited about the new show.
Those who have already watched the first episode, “Dog and Chainsaw,” know that it’s not for the faint of heart because it has a lot of violent and bloody scenes. Lucky for us, they have a lot of funny parts to make them easier to watch.

What is the Plot of Chainsaw Man?
Chainsaw Man is a story about Denji, a poor boy who lives with a dog named Pochita that looks like a devil. He lives in a world where people’s fears turn into devils. The show is based on a manga by Tatsuki Fujimoto.
It follows Denji as he goes on adventures to find dead devils. But he dies soon after, which isn’t a spoiler, and he makes a deal with Pochita to come back as “Chainsaw Man.” Even though that’s the main idea, in the first arc, “Public Safety,” he teams up with the Public Safety Devil Hunters to, you guessed it, hunt down all the devils in the world.
But Denji has a secret weapon: he can turn into Chainsaw Man by pulling a cord on his chest. Chainsaw Man has arms and legs instead of chainsaws. Makima, the head of Public Safety Division 4, and hunters Aki, a swordsman, and Power, who is more like a devil, join him.
The Public Safety Arc will be adapted in the first season, but it is not known if all 97 chapters will be shown. If it does, it will probably have around 26 episodes, but as of this writing, that number hasn’t been confirmed.
