Here is Viz Media's description of the manga:

"Denji's a poor young man who'll do anything for money, even hunting down devils with his pet devil-dog Pochita. He's a simple man with simple dreams, drowning under a mountain of debt. 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!"

Chainsaw Man started serialization in Weekly Shōnen Jump in December 2018. Part 1 of the manga ended with 97 chapters last December 2020. It is part of the top five best-selling manga in Japan for the first half of the year, selling over 4 million copies.
