“Denji’s a poor young man who’ll do anything for money, even hunting down devils with his pet devil-dog Pochita,” reads the official synopsis of the manga. “He’s a simple man with simple dreams, drowning under a mountain of debt. But his sad life gets turned upside down one day when he’s betrayed by someone he trusts. Now with the power of a devil inside him, Denji’s become a whole new man—Chainsaw Man!”
Chainsaw Man is originally a manga series written and illustrated by Tatsuki Fujimoto, who also is known for their work on the Fire Punch manga. It was initially serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump from December 2018 to December 2020.
