Denji, mistreated by everyone his whole life, finally finds a shot at fulfilling his dream. His life in the hell hole of debt is finally over and now, with Pochita in his heart, he will aim to grab hold of all the things he wishes for. We are very excited to see him begin his journey in Chainsaw Man Episode 2.
People who had no prior knowledge of the series definitely were shocked. Although classified as shonen, Chainsaw Man pulls no punches when it comes to gore. And in this episode, we saw MAPPA studio bring all that chaos from the manga to life.
To be honest, the Chainsaw Man manga art is very unpolished and gritty. However, that actually suits the tone of the series perfectly. We thought that adapting to such messy work is hard but MAPPA studio did an amazing job with it. And the buckets of blood flowing out reminds us of the 90s anime.
The world is filled with Devils. And hence, the job of a devil hunter is quite lucrative. Denji’s newfound power is nothing short of incredible and we hope that he will learn its full potential as we go forward. We are excited to see some more battles in Chainsaw Man Episode 2.

Denji is an orphan riddled by a massive debt his dad left him. He works tirelessly every day and lives in extreme poverty. His employer thinks of him as a dog. He works hard and is very cheap.
