But his sad life gets turned upside down one day when he’s betrayed by someone he trusts. Now with the power of a devil inside him, Denji’s become a whole new man—Chainsaw Man!
If you’ve been around recently, you’ve definitely heard of MAPPA. They’ve been on the headlines with a lot of huge projects including Jujutsu Kaisen and Attack on titan final season. MAPPA animating Chainsaw man just makes it much more exciting, evidently because of their recent works.
