Crunchyroll describes the story:
Denji is a teenage boy living with a Chainsaw Devil named Pochita. Due to the debt his father left behind, he has been living a rock-bottom life while repaying his debt by harvesting devil corpses with Pochita.
One day, Denji is betrayed and killed. As his consciousness fades, he makes a contract with Pochita and gets revived as “Chainsaw Man”–a man with a devil’s heart.
Chainsaw Man has been earning numerous praises from fans and critics alike because of its unique storyline and amazing animation. This can be credited to the team and the studio behind the television anime of Tatsuki Fujimoto’s infamous gore manga. Many fans have been supporting the series ever since the adaptation was announced and many are looking forward to the different scenes that are yet to be animated in the show.
The opening theme song, “KICK BACK,” is performed by Kenshi Yonezu, and the anime will have 12 closing theme songs, one for each episode.
