I just finished watching the first episode of Chainsaw Man, which premiered on October 11, 2022 and was blown!We start the first episode with our first look at Denji’s “hero”, who lives in poverty with his devil’s dog Pagita.We learn that Denji has a huge debt that he has to pay back and that he desperately sells his own body parts!Poor guy!I immediately felt sorry for this broken hero.

However, the most profitable for the devil hunting and with the help of the caps as a half-diablach-chain-colored is able to kill the tomato devil.Denji’s dad committed suicide, leaving him with a huge debt, which must be repaid towards Yakuza (Japanese criminal syndicate).Yakuza find devils whom Denji can kill, and then give him a small part of profits in return.

We receive a flashback, which reveals how Denji met a wounded pit on his father’s grave and how he concluded a contract with him – his blood for his help.Then Denji tells Yakuzie to hire him as a devil hunter.Later, the leader of Yakuza cheats on Denji.He concluded a contract with the devil for “power”, but as a devil-Zombi he turns people into zombies, so it was probably not the power they expected.

The terrifying devil-Zombie wants everything to the devil hunters are dead and make their servants zombie to kill Denji and Pochita.Denji is brutally quartered and thrown into the garbage bin along with the pit.Part of Denji’s blood gets into the mouth of the cap and the vagina remembers how Denji told him that if he dies, he can have his body and live his own dreams.Podkita decides to conclude his own contract – his heart in exchange for making Denji fulfill his dreams.

As a non-manga reader who comes to this series of anime with a view only about summary, I expected that Pagita would be a bad devil who eventually betrayed Denji.Wow, it turned out that I was wrong.The cap may and is a devil, but he has an angel’s heart.The saying “Dogs are a man’s best friend” definitely refers to the cap!

Thanks to his newly discovered power as a man of a mechanical saw, Denji is able to defeat the devil of Zombie and kill all the ice -bellied Yakuza, which in turn releases him from his debt.Denji’s battle against the Zombie devil and his servants was a satisfactory bloody and amazing to watch.Good job, mapp!

The squeaking sound of a chain saw in the background made me shiver.Now I know that every time I hear the sound of a chain saw, I only think: “Denji-kun !!!

A woman of the devil, Makima, from the Public Security Bureau, the organization appears on the stage, and the half -loving Denji asks her to hug him.Makima decides to hug Denji and returns to his human character.Makima gives Denj two options – he can be killed as a devil or can be stopped as a human.(Makima maybe he wants a human pet? Oh, Denji, what did you get into?)

Makima also declares that he will feed Denji.When Denji asks what breakfast he would eat, Makima replies that he would eat toast with jam and butter, salad, coffee and probably something for dessert.Because Denji’s dream was just eating bread with jam and sharing him with a pit, he immediately convinces him.The saying: “The path to the man’s heart leads through the stomach” definitely refers to Denji!

What is the plot of Chainsaw Man?

History takes place in a world where devils are born of human fears and manifest in reality.The devils can be bad and dangerous and are as powerful as fear they can cause.However, with the emergence of the demand for “devil hunters” there was a need to conclude contracts with devils to get their power and fight fire with fire.Devils usually live in a dimension called “hell”, but when they are killed, they are transferred to the physical plan of the Earth.When the devil is killed on earth, they return to hell.

The story focuses on the impoverished young man named Denji, who, due to the amazing debt left by his father, tries to find a occasional job to survive.He makes friends with a dog -like devil named Podkita and together they collect the corpse of devils to earn money.

One day, however, Denji is betrayed and killed.When his consciousness disappears, he decides to conclude a contract with Pilan.The devil connects his body with Denji, giving him the opportunity to transform part of his body into deadly chain saws.Using his newly discovered power, Denji joins the hunters of public security devils – a government agency whose task is to fight devils whenever they become a threat to humanity.
