The first Chainsaw Man trailer is here, and it’s bloody! MAPPA’s YouTube Channel post the first trailer for the anime series about a half-human and half-devil to celebrate the manga’s 10th anniversary. The anime studio will animate the series based on Tatsuki Fujimoto manga series of the same name. Black Clover and Jujutsu Kaisen’s episode director Ryū Nakayama will direct the series. Attack on Titan The Final Season’s writer, Hiroshi Seko, is penning the scripts, and Kazutaka Sugiyama, who worked on Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation anime is designing the characters.
Fujimoto debuted series in the first 2019 issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine published on December 3, 2018. Fujimoto began work on Chainsaw man after his manga series Fire Punch ended January 2018. However, MAPPA didn’t reveal when the Chainsaw Man anime series will start airing.
Chainsaw Man Plos: The story is set in a world where Devils cause harm to humans, which makes them a target for extermination. Denji is a young, depressed man who has sold several of his organs and works as a tree cutter and devil hunter to pay back his deceased father’s debt to loan sharks (yakuza). Denji owns a dog (that is also a devil) called Pochita, that has the characteristic features of a chainsaw and is used by Denji as such for his work. Humans can make deals (contracts) with devils. After returning home from killing a tomato devil, Denji gets called by the Yakuza to go into a building to kill another devil, However, as it turns out, the Yakuza called Denji to allow a zombie devil to kill Denji, and in return, the zombie devil would give the yakuza more power, which would let them make more money. After Denji is killed and Pochita is severely injured by said devil, Pochita merges with Denji, (because of a deal Denji made with Pochita when they first met) and as a result, Denji’s wounds heal and gets revived as a half-human, half-devil, acquiring Pochita’s chainsaw ability. Denji then uses said ability to kill the zombie devil that initially killed him. After killing said devil, a team of governmental devil hunters arrives on the scene, and after discovering that the devil was already killed by Denji, one of its members persuade Denji to become part of the governmental devil hunting organization the team belongs to.
