The cartoon was created and illustrated by tatsuki Fujimoto, who also created fire punch. The series also has its own novel, chainsaw man: a friend story, written by sakaku hishikawa. Most anime fans are eagerly waiting for the release of this anime.
“Chainsaw man” is an action horror comedy mixed with dark fantasy. Its story takes place on another timeline in our world. The Soviet Union still exists and the Holocaust never happened. Here, the devil is born from human strong negative emotions, such as fear. They were born in hell and migrate between hell and the earth. If a devil is killed in hell, they will be sent to earth. If they are killed on earth, they will be sent to hell. Their power is directly proportional to the level of fear they cause in humans. Now in order to fight these demons, some people are trained to defeat them. They are called demon hunters. Dangi, our hero is a demon hunter who works for the gangs. With the help of the lovely dog chainsaw demon bochita, he pays off his father’s debt.
The story of the chainsaw took place in Japan in 1997. It is set on another timeline of our world. The Soviet Union still exists. Denji is a gangster demon hunter who works with his dog chainsaw demon pochita. However, the gang reached an agreement with the zombie devil and betrayed the throne. In order to save him, bochta fused with him and resurrected him as a hybrid of man and ghost under the condition that Danji lived a “normal” life. Later, Danji finally slaughtered the gangs and was recruited by the government’s demon hunter team and the public security department. The Department is headed by Tangi’s new boss and makima, who persuaded him to join their team. He worked with power, blood demon and AKI Hayakawa, a self destructive demon hunter. Makima assured him that as long as he could kill the gun demon, any grace could be given. The gun devil is behind the massacre in human history. This opened his new journey.
