Chainsaw Man Story
The Chainsaw Man anime is about Denji, a young man who lives in a world where demons called “Devils” can be killed for money. After his father is killed by a Devil, Denji ends up working for the Yakuza to pay off his father’s debts. However, things take a turn for the worse when Denji’s own body is taken over by a Devil (Pochita) who aided him during his devil devil hunt, resulting in him becoming the Chainsaw Man.
Chainsaw Man Anime Characters
One of the most interesting things about the Chainsaw Man anime is the unique cast of characters. The main characters include:
Denji Chainsaw Man
The main character, Denji, is a chainsaw-wielding maniac who is constantly seeking out powerful enemies to fight. However, he isn’t your typical shounen protagonist – he’s often portrayed as being quite stupid, and his Chainsaw Man form is more of a berserker than a strategic fighter. This makes for some very entertaining moments, especially when he’s up against seemingly insurmountable odds.
Power Chainsaw Man
Another interesting character in the story is Power. Power is portrayed as a greedy, self motivated and childish character. While she can often be rude, unkempt and a compulsive liar, she tends to fight with hopes of gaining something from it even when there’s non and only when winning is certain. She knows when to run if she’s outmatched and doesn’t care who she aligns with. Power openly admits that she will choose the winning side when push comes to shove.
Aki Hayakawa Chainsaw Man
Denji and Aki are both Public Safety Devil Hunters in Makima’s special Division 4 squad. In the same way as Denji’s contract with Pochita, Aki has a contract with the Curse Devil and Future Devil which allows him to use a powerful spike in exchange for his lifespan and see a few seconds into the future.
Despite their frequent arguments, Aki acts as a dedicated devil hunter to Denji and opens up to him in private and later proves how much he cares about both him and Power.
Makima Chainsaw Man
Makima, the enigmatic leader of the Devil Hunters who is also a half devil, half human like denji. Denji falls in love with Makima and even thought she is well aware of this, she manipulates him to control him and use Chainsaw Man for her own dubious ends.
The other characters are also quite interesting. There’s Pochita, Denji’s talking chainsaw companion, who provides comic relief and is also a powerful weapon in his own right. And then there are the various villains, each with their own motivations and abilities.
Overall, the cast of Chainsaw Man is one of its biggest strengths. Each character is unique and has their own role to play in the story. It’ll be interesting to see how they all interact as the anime progresses.
