On the official Twitter account for the Anime adaptation of the Manga written and illustrated by Tatsuki Fujimoto, chainsaw mana special video was published showing a special message from the voice actor Kikunosuke Toyawho plays the character Denji. The artist uses the character’s tone of voice in his message, which he writes: «You all have big dreams, don’t you? Then let’s have a dream battle! Dream Battle!».
This video is part of a collaboration between the card game Weiss Schwarz and the franchise chainsaw manand the user who shared the video wrote: «The role changes too well. It’s not that I’m acting with my voice, but that I have Denji inside. The expression is exactly the same. I can see why director Nakayama chose it for its “tone”. I know this is a typical professional voice actor, but you have to remember that he is a newcomer in the industry. Megumi Ogata once said: “Voice acting is a matter of talent”».
The full video is available below:
Summary for Chain Saw Man
The story takes place in a world where Demons threaten the peace of the people, making them targets for elimination. Denji is a depressed young man who sold some of his organs and works as a lumberjack and devil hunter to pay his late father’s debts. Denji (who is also a demon) has a dog named Pochita, who has chainsaws and uses them to do his work.
This is explained by the fact that humans can make contracts with demons. After returning home from a job, Denji is tasked by Yakuza to infiltrate a building and kill another demon. However, the plan to kill him turned out to be a trap as part of the Yakuza’s deal with the devil, which gained them more power. But Pochita comes to Denji’s aid and bails him out.
