Chainsaw Man follows the story of Denji, an impoverished young man who makes a contract that fuses his body with that of a dog-like devil named Pochita, granting him the ability to transform parts of his body into chainsaws. Denji eventually joins the Public Safety Devil Hunters, a government agency focused on fighting against devils whenever they become a threat to Japan. The second arc of the story focuses on Asa Mitaka, a high school student who enters into a contract with Yoru, the War Devil, who forces her to hunt down Chainsaw Man in order to reclaim the devils stolen from her.
Various reviewers have commented the use of violence and gory scenes within the context of the story. Dupree wrote that the \"irreverent tone and deliciously gory violence\" are elements that make the series \"really stand out from the get-go.\" Collins wrote that the gory scenes, instead of being gratuitous, make the story feel \"refreshingly unfiltered.\" McNeil commented that the series is \"wonderfully absurd. It's funny, gorey [sic], and violent, but also has an interesting bit of humanity at its core.\" Davinson called it \"casually gruesome and violent,\" but that it fits with its theme. Lee wrote: \"Chainsaw Man is gory. Extremely gory,\" adding that these scenes make the series different from other shōnen series, calling them \"pretty gross,\" but \"fitting for a dark manga about slashing devils down with a chainsaw.\" Dacey called the series a \"blood-and-testosterone-soaked battle manga,\" commenting that its main appeal is the \"outrageous displays of gore and violence,\" adding as well that Fujimoto \"does his utmost to push the boundaries of good taste.\" Beckett wrote that the \"delightfully ridiculous and bloody\" premise runs with it in \"all sorts of fascinating directions,\" adding however, that its reveling in crude humor and violence could be off-putting to some readers.
Denji is at the center of the show, who acquired a hefty debt following the death of his father. Murdered by a devil, he was fortunate in having a dog-like devil called Pochita by his side. As he died, he and the devil merged, creating the human-devil hybrid known as Chainsaw Man, which allows Denji to turn parts of his body into chainsaws at will.
However, when Denji pulls the chain on his chest, his head splits open and the chainsaw comes out. Although merged with Denji's heart, Pochita runs the show from behind-the-scene and doesn't have any particular influence on his personality.

I've seen some folks lamenting that Chainsaw Man wasn't the anime they expected based on all of the hype, but I hope by now they've come to realize that it might just be even better than the version of CSM that got built up in their minds by all of the trailers and fanart. This is a show that is just as good at being horny-yet-somehow-elevated trash art as it is at being a masterfully macabre splatterfest, and it's still a great time when its dick and its chainsaws have been tucked firmly into their proverbial pants/arm holes. It's a good-ass story, plain and simple, and it's one of the best looking and sounding good-ass stories to grace our screens in quite some time is icing on the cake. 59ce067264
