Chainsaw man synopsis
The story takes place in a world where demons threaten the peace of people and turn them into targets that must 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 who he does his work with. This is explained because humans can contract with demons. After returning from a job, Denji is summoned by a yakuza to infiltrate a building and murder another demon. However, the plan was a trap to murder him under a yakuza contract with the demon and gain this more power. But Pochita comes to Denji and joins him, becomes half man, half demon and acquires Pochita's chainsaws.
