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.
