Chainsaw Man Anime Plot
In Chainsaw Man, we follow Denji, a young man saddled by the debt his late father left behind. With no other options and no money to spare, Denji pursues a risky path to repaying the loan.
With the help of his devil-dog Pochita, who tragically perished after a mission went awry, Denji becomes a demon hunter in a world where evil stems from people’s anxieties.
Denji becomes the human-demon hybrid “Chainsaw Man” after Pochita meets him and offers to be his new heart.
