Chainsaw Man may have buckets of blood and gore present in a series that follows the life of demon hunter Denji, but the Tatsukii Fujimoto-created series isn’t afraid to venture into other genres when exploring this universe of demons. Since one of Denji’s key goals in the first season of the anime adaptation was to get a girlfriend, the second chapter of the manga brings him very close to achieving that goal, with the new art hilariously portraying the bloody shonen as a romantic comedy.
If you only watch the anime, the manga saw Denji placed in a rather unique situation that is vastly different from his beginnings as a demon hunter. Without going too deep into spoiler territory, Denji is no longer the hero leading the series, but current war fiend Asa MItaka has taken the reins instead. While Asa’s story has many similarities to the Chainsaw Devil story of a young high school girl making a deal with a war devil, she is definitely a much different character than a boy who would make a deal with a chainsaw devil. striving to achieve a life that many of us take for granted.

Chainsaw Man, unlike many other anime series, only plans to have a dozen episodes in its first season, which makes sense when you think about not only the level of quality on display, but the sheer output that Studio MAPPA is putting out many anime series. While a second season has not been confirmed, MAPPA has been adamant that they hope to adapt all of Tatsuki Fujimoto’s manga works at some point.
