Synopsis for Chainsaw Man

The story takes place in a world where demons threaten the peace of the people, making them targets to be eliminated. Denji is a depressed young man who has sold several of his organs and works as a lumberjack and demon hunter to pay off his late father's debts. Denji owns a dog (who is also a demon) named Pochita who has chainsaws and does his job.

This is explained because humans can make contracts with demons. After returning home from a job, Denji is summoned by a yakuza to infiltrate a building and kill another demon. However, the plan was a trap to murder him as part of a yakuza contract with the demon to give them more power. But Pochita comes to Denji's aid and bonds with him, becoming half human half demon and acquiring Pochita's chainsaws.
