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