:eek:
The story is set in a world where devils are born from human fears. While usually dangerous and malevolent, humans can form contracts with devils to use a portion of their power. Denji is a young, depressed man, who is attempting to pay back his deceased father's debt to the yakuza by selling several of his organs and working as a devil hunter. Denji also owns a doglike devil named Pochita, which resembles a chainsaw and assists Denji in his work. Denji is tasked by the Yakuza to kill a devil, but discovers a plot by the yakuza to let the devil kill him in return for its aid. Denji is slain and Pochita severely injured, but the two had previously made a deal that allows Pochita to merge with Denji, reviving him as a human-devil hybrid with Pochita's chainsaw ability. Denji kills the devil that killed him and is then approached by a team of governmental devil hunters. As he has now partly become a devil, one of the teams' members, Makima, persuades Denji to become a part of their organization to avoid being hunted by them.

Real talk, can't wait, feel sorry for the poor animators that MAPPA had to sacrifice at the alter to get this level of quality they appear to be delivering for this show though. :rofl2:

Is there a name for this style of anime? It looks expensive.
dark surrealism is the closest description

there's another show right now out that's doing something similar called Summer Time Render



Sadly in the west it's locked behind the Disney+ paywall for some stupid fucking reason.

I didn't even last 3 episodes and I watched the movie and read the tie-in manga. :o

It gets better. I hated Buruto at first because he's disrespectful af to Naruto, but stuff happens that opens his eyes and starts him on his character arc.

By the way, if anyone has read Chainsaw Man but hasn't read Fire Punch they really should.

Same author/artist, same writing style, same humor, WAY MORE BLEAK. :rofl:

It's funny how people like Tatsuya Endo (Spy X Family) are called the "Ax Man" for being too dark and getting their shit canceled but Fujimoto is out here writing shit that would make the most depressing parts of Berserk seem tame and people just eat it up.

Guess that's because Endo keeps trying to appeal towards the Shonen (young teen) crowd and didn't succeed till his editor basically strapped him to a chair and hit him with a rolled up newspaper every time he went too dark and Fujimoto has never even bothered with anything but Seinen (adult). :rofl:
