All You Need To Know About Chainsaw Man

Chainsaw Man, just like much other anime, is set in a fantasy world. In this world, devils live. These devils are born from the fears of humans. The power of a devil is proportional to the amount of fear it incites within humans. While devils generally hunt humans, some humans specializing in hunting can form a contract with a devil. This allows the human to hunt down other devils using the devil they are in contract with. These humans who hunt other devils are called Devil Hunters. The devils generally originate from hell and come to the earth when they are killed in hell.

Under some circumstances, a devil can even inhabit the body of a dead human. In doing so, the devil might gain the memories of the human and might start resembling their personality. Such kinds of devils are known as fiends.

Another noticeable thing is that Chainsaw Man took place in 1997, and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, commonly known as the Soviet Union, is not disintegrated.

What Is The Story Of Chainsaw Man?

Chainsaw man follows the story of Denji. Denji works as a devil hunter to pay off his father’s debt to a Yakuza. He is supported by his devil companion in the form of a chainsaw named Pochita. One day Denji is betrayed by the yakuza and is killed alongside Pochita. Pochita forges a contract with Denji and merges with him. Thus, Denji becomes a hybrid devil-human. Soon, the devil hunters working for the government, under the Public Safety Division approach Denji and persuade him to join their task force. Denji is partnered with Power, and Aki Hayakawa. Makima (who persuaded Denji to join her division) promises Denji to do anything if he kills the Gun Devil, the devil behind the greatest massacre in human history. There on begins the adventures of Denji and his pursuit of a ‘normal life.’
