Chainsaw Man Synopsis
The story unfolds in a world where Demons threaten the peace of humans, making them targets to eliminate. Denji is a young and depressed man who has sold several of his organs and who works as a lumberjack and demon hunter to pay off his late father's debt.
Denji owns a dog (which is also a demon) named Pochita, which has chainsaws and which he uses to do his job. This is explained since humans can contract with demons. After returning home from a job, Denji is called by a Yakuza to infiltrate a building and murder another demon. However, the plan was a trap to assassinate him as part of the Yakuza's contract with the demon, obtaining these more power. But Pochita comes to the aid of Denji and joins him, becoming a half-man, half-demon and acquiring Pochita's chainsaws.
