Tatsuki Fujimoto is the author and illustrator of the Japanese manga series Chainsaw Man. From December 2018 to December 2020, it was serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shnen Jump magazine, with chapters compiled in eleven tankbon editions. ‘Chainsaw Man’ is a supernatural action horror TV anime that will air in the nearish term. The plot follows Denji, an adolescent who is compelled to serve as a devil hunter for the yakuza due to a hefty loan bequeathed behind by his late father. Devils are practically eternal monsters who reside in both hell and the mundane world on Denji’s planet.
Denji is supported by Pochita, a devil who resembles a dog and is the embodiment of fear and ignorance of chainsaws. The inevitable betrayal of Denji by the yakuza culminates in his execution. Pochita volunteers to be his heart in order to restore him. Denji is transformed into a devil-human hybrid called the Chainsaw Man as a result of this. Now it’s coming to an anime adaptation that anime fans have been waiting for. We’ve gathered some information about the upcoming anime series.
