Chainsaw Man is based on the manga by Tatsuki Fujimoto and follows Denji, a young man living in poverty and working off his deceased father's debt to the yakuza by working as a devil hunter. He is aided by Pochita, his canine companion and Chainsaw Devil. But when Denji is betrayed by the Yakuza and left for dead, he merges with Pochita and becomes a human-devil Hybrid. After Denji massacres the yakuza, he is approached by Makima who convinces him to join a team of governmental devil hunters known as the Public Safety Division.
