i havent read very much manga in fact this is the only manga I've read to completion at the time of me writing this the characters are all so unique and interesting the fact that devil hunters all approach each fight in a different way according to their devils and just the amount of combat and awesome artwork the characters are so loveable and the concepts it introduces are interesting and always changing always killing off characters then adding new ones

This is shit lmao. The story is so fck boring and the characters SO annoying. Worst money spend even for a single volume. I hate everything abt this shit

I've read about 24 chapters. Chainsaw Man is good, but it's overrated. It's just your average shounen formula with a better-than-average coating. It's no masterpiece especially when it's built around egregious fan service that gets tedious fast. I'd recommend watching the anime before reading the manga.
Reply · Nov 08, 2022

I like the concept of a main character's goal to just live a normal life but it isn't executed well in this series. You'd think Denji would get more character development but he remains the same simp throughout the story. Characters die too quickly to feel any attachment to them and the female characters just want to groom Denji. Pochita is the best part of this whole manga.

This is one of the few manga's I really enjoyed, the story is well written which is an A+. There a bunch of plotwist and doubt in few characters, and that's what makes the manga good. Our mc Denji is one of my top 5 favorite mc's because his character is so well written and amazing and maybe all the good things i can say, I say the same for the rest of the cast. The story is not to long or to short it's kinda just in the middle, its well pasted [I think ( ͠° ͟ʖ ͡°) ] and the story fits alot in there and you end up finishing it with a lot of emotion, which means it's very good. I don't really know what else to say about it but I would recommend this alot. The author is one of my favs and his work is truly amazing, So thumbs up on this one yet again \(0^◇^0)/.

It's just 'meh' at first. If u don't have any issue digesting gore and filth then you will find it okay. Nothing scary. But it becomes interesting as you go on. I could not stop reading what will happen next even when I didn't particularly like anything about it.

This isn't bad by any means and it is pretty action-oriented and fast-paced as to be bingeable. The story itself I don't think does anything all that groundbreaking, which it doesn't necessarily have to, but the plot of killing devils to save people or whatever didn't stand out to me in anyway. I don't think part 1 sold the plot enough for me to fully buy why I should spend my time reading this instead some other shonen manga. I think there's some hints at potential for the future though where it may get more intriguing and complex. Like I'm not blown away, but I'm intrigued enough to keep reading.

Reply · Jan 21, 2022

You get confused a lot about what is going on and why certain things are happening until you get into the chapters in the 80's, then get confused again, then it clears up again in the last few chapters. The characters are amazing and really cool and pretty easy to keep track of. The art is pretty nice but can get a little confusing with all the effects and too much black but it is still really good.
Reply · Jan 20, 2022

This manga is one if not the best one I've ever seen. The story is breathtaking. It was a little bit obvious who was the main villain, but if you really think as Denji you won't notice it untill you're supposed to
Reply · Jan 07, 2022

I’m actually surprised I ended up reading this whole thing considering I never really got into it. It just wasn’t that good in my opinion. I don’t mind when characters get killed off so that wasn’t a problem for me but there’s literally like no character development at all and they are very one dimensional. The few characters that actually have some potential get very few scenes. The main character only got even a little interesting towards the latter part of the story and is pretty boring throughout. So I guess he improved a bit. The only time that I liked him was when he was fighting (and that was rare). The story wasn’t really anything special and the world building was just okay. That being said, there were some good moments and plot twists that I enjoyed a bit. I wouldn't say that this manga is super dark but it is a little creepy, idk if I'd classify it as horror though.

Well another typical story about demons and some ppl fighting em but it has own special world anyways this one is hella dark and the author here loves kill his characters but the thing here is after a quiet chapters the events start getting weird like I get too many wtf moments no plot twist nothing deep just some shit happend that make no sense especially around 70-97 chapters even tho I found myself really enjoying and interesting about what gonna happen in the next chapter but unfortunately like I said stuff happened make no sens I tried really hard to figure out the hell happened but meh the author wants the throw some shitty mystry on our faces because he's really lazy to explain regardless the art was awesome ik it can be confused sometimes because the blood but frankly I felt so bad for the first characters that died but after reading for several chapters I was like huh why no one die anymore what I'm trying to say u will use to it eventually waiting for the sequel to see what kind of bullshit we will receive

The selling point of this manga is definetely the art. It's quite similar to the art of Berserk as it's very detailed and it's clear that a lot of work went into it. Despite that, also like Berserk, I often found it hard to discern what I am looking at because of the black and white format. The very grotesque parts often featured alot of blood and as it is drawn as black, the image becomes pretty hard to look at.

I'm sort of a casual when it comes to both anime and manga so you can take this with a pinch of salt. Also, this is the first manga that I've read to completion as well. But I don't say this lightly, this is one of the best things I've read, period. The writing is great, the illustrations are incredible and surprisingly consistent. The characters are so good as well, the fights are awesome, the comedy when it happens is damn good, and when serious stuff happens, it is done so well. I'm probably gonna read it again and again, I'll never forget Chainsaw Man, and I'm even excited/hopeful for the anime than I was before reading.
Reply · Jul 28, 2021

Chainsaw Man is a very fun read. It's not afraid to be absolutely ruthless and go places most shounen work shy away from. It's also very blunt and in your face about it. The characters are so wholesome and dumb at times that you can't help but laugh at their ridiculousness, as well as their antics. There's also tonnes of strong female characters that are well written and diverge from the usual tropes/struggles previous creators seemed to have with writing them. I think Fujimoto did a great job with them. As well as writing the main villian/antagonist Makima. The art was stellar throughout, depicting Denji's changing form, playing with new perspectives and even showing intense emotions and situations. I also love Denji's character development. As for the story, though I enjoyed it for the most part, the ending really was disappointing for me. The pacing was always fast, but I feel like it became too fast and things that could've been explained never were.

People should read this manga. If I were to explain this manga through a few words, I'd say: dog, teenager, halloween, boobs, lesbian, dilf, door, snowball and cake. There may be some parts which will be somehow annoying like the 'woof woof' however this manga is such a good catch. The end of the first arc had me hanging, I did not know what should I feel but I really loved the bumpy ride while reading this. I think this will break the internet once this manga gets animated.

If you check my profile, you will see that I am not an avid manga reader. In fact, I have only read manhwas before. A big reason for that is the art style. As someone who has weak eyes, the usual graphic and dark art style of the manga hurts my eyes, and it's not really suited to my taste. However, the Chainsaw Man had a very 'clean' art style. It did not hurt my eyes at all. So if you like clear panels with not too much shadowing and grittiness, you will like this very much. As for the story, as I said, I am not an avid manga reader so I have nothing to compare this to, however, I loved the story. Sometimes the pacing felt too rushed and it seemed like I am finishing entire chapters without really getting anything, but it has those moments of revelation where everything comes crashing down. I loved the thrill and excitement I got from those parts. I felt like because of the plot centric-ness, we do not get a deeper look into any of the characters other than Denji and Aki. I would have really loved a few chapters from Makima's perspective. This is why I think there is room for improvement in terms of character development. But, the manga artist took a great take at Denji's psyche, in fact, the MC's development is one of the main reasons anyone should start reading Chainsaw Man. Can't wait for MAPPA to release the anime!

Insane brutal thats what you think and what you get from Chainsaw Man. Do not try to use your brain while reading if you do its 7/10. I had no expectaions from this and i thought it is just stupid idea of making such an insane world. But story turned out to be great lot of unexpected things show up and it was just thrilling to read i wanned to read more and more. Pasing was great and i think chapter 22 or something blowed me away it was just great to read but sadly endig was way too rushed from my point of view it needed at least 20-30 more chapters to develop satisfing ending. Dont get me wrong its still 100% worth reading if you dont mind gore.

Honestly it was an awesome manga. The characters were fun, the fight scenes were mess which made it better. The characters sidnt have a plot armour which really set it apart from most mangas. I liked the idea that "chainsaw man" and denji were two different characters near the end Makima's reveal really suprised me. The only thing which i didnt find that good in the manga were the wasted potential in the characters and also it being a mess in the end.

The art style and character designs were the main features that drew me towards reading this manga. I find Fujimoto’s way of drawing to be very visually appealing, and it only took seeing one of the colored double-pages to cause me to research and ultimately begin reading Chainsaw Man without knowing much else about it. It may come across that I am easy to please; however, unique art styles are one of my major pulls. The intriguing synopsis was the cherry on top.

Chainsaw Man. If you haven’t heard of Chainsaw man, what are you doing in your life? Tatsuki Fujimoto, the brains behind this unfiltered unconventional mix of horror and shounen manga manages to create a suspensefully gory masterpiece of a story filled with blood, guts, death, one horny teenager, and devils. This manga is set in the real world but with an abnormal yet wondrous twist, the coexistence of demons/fiends who harbor their power from humanity’s fear of a certain person, place, thing, or item. We are introduced to our main character Denji, a lovable deranged teenager who made friends with the infamous chainsaw devil to combat his debt by slaying dangerous devils. Eventually the Chainsaw devil Pochita becomes a part of Denji. Once Pochita and Denji are fused together a mysterious woman named Ms. Makima appears from the Public Safety Devil Hunter Bureau getting Denji to work for her by luring him in with the promise of a cozy life and a date. Denji being the horny and hungry poor teenager he automatically takes this offer. The comically superficial wants that fuel his steel resolve eventually becomes his downfall. This is the start of a long invigorating bloodstained path that Denji walks down. First thing I noticed when I was recommended this was the unique premise. A chainsaw man? A chainsaw dog? Them fighting devils? It was all oddly captivating. The worldbuilding surrounded by demons, fiends, devils, and contracts was oddly enchanting too and nothing less than ingenious. It was all obviously met with detail, precision, and cleverness but since the nature of this manga is fast paced I had to go back a couple chapters quite a few times to understand what the characters are talking about. This was sort of irritating but I'm not gonna blame Chainsaw man itself because this may be my fault for my poor comprehension skills. The way the manga is presented to you from its worldbuilding, characters, and plot is set to show the reader that this manga isn’t going to be very happy. And it isn’t. Chainsaw man had me crying for quite a big portion of it. The source of my tears were the bittersweet lack of character shields. Throughout the manga we are constantly reminded that no character is safe and death will ensue whether you like it or not. Sweetly telling the audience that each character is practically expendable. This element right here is arguably one of Chainsaw Man's strong suits. So many charming characters that left a lasting imprint within the audience and that were portrayed in a way that they would last ended up dying. This was quite a shock to me and most likely many readers but I enjoyed this shock. While many are opposed to this ruthless character killing I sort of like it. I absolutely love when authors use very little character shields because it's a poignant way of breaking the cycle of ridiculous shields popular in mainstream shonen. It's a love hate relationship between appreciating the risks that were taken and how it refines the story with the selfish desire to want to see all the characters survive and thrive. Of course in this manga no one really thrives or survives like they deserve too. With this imminent butchery the panels that come with the bloodshed are extremely attractive, detailed, and imaginative. Through the plethora of carnage the fights manage to not feel boring or repetitive too. I have seen many shonen manga struggle with this. But with Tatsuki’s twistedly creative mind we have all sorts of variety in this blood bath. This can go from simply a head being chopped off to Chainsaw Man blowing through an army of rotting zombies or lighting himself on fire and butchering his enemy. This always kept me in awe at how cool and crazy Denji was gonna kill something. I also enjoyed how Chainsaw man doesn’t take its brutality too serious either. We get some humorous moments to shed some light in the gory-ness such as Denji and Aki kicking a guys balls to see who hits him the hardest. Denji and Power being the main ones to deliver some dopey and raunchy lines once again lightening the mood. Another thing that makes Chainsaw man one of my favorites is the individuality of the characters as well as their response to different events that happen to them. Every character is memorable and leaves their impact in the story in either a tragic way or a humorous way. Its truly amazing how Chainsaw Man was able to give it's cast great depth, likability, background, and individuality at the same time despite its expansive characters. Almost all of the cast had dimension with the somewhat exception of Denji since his personality is comically shallow and the mysterious Makima, everyone else in the main character bracket were fleshed out. Yet I felt like it was seemingly not enough. I feel repetitive saying this but since it is fast paced there wasn't enough time to really bring out Makima's and Denji's full potential in their dimension. This also goes for the infamous villains of certain arcs like Katana man, Snake woman, and Santa Clause. Their backstories and overall individual character felt flat, lost, and almost forgotten. This feeling of loss is especially prominent in the last chapter mostly centering on Makima, but I have to say the other characters great writing and development won't go unnoticed from me. Adding to their depth the main trio (Denji, Aki, and Power) had great character development, plunging them into the world of unlikely friendship and heart breaking grievances. Aki, Denji, and Power were once the one track minded, violent, and in their own world devil hunters only caring to make "friends" because it would allow them to achieve their selfish goals. By the end of the manga you will have witnessed the immense character change from the disinterested to the adoration, this trio has become a family. We watch as they continuously spend time together and formulate their unique bonds. Even if they fight or constantly piss each other off there is unspoken love and closeness that the audience grasps ahold of. While there was enough depth for me to see the characters as really well written, I would have wanted to have more to grasp on. Hopefully the next part will be there to give Denji more depth and mature development as the main character since he went through all that strife. These are just minor things that I would have liked to see for me as a person, honestly overall the characters in this manga were exceptionally well written and never felt plain. Each character is crafted with lovability, charm, uniqueness, and most likely an inevitable death. Death being a major theme in Chainsaw man we get to see each character take this theme and deal with it in their own unique way. Denji is sort of unfazed through many deaths in the first start of the manga, but as he continues to strengthen his bonds with his friends that dramatically changes. This is just one example of well the character development is and how hard hitting the themes in this story are presented. Varying from subtle to prominent, Chainsaw Man's themes and symbolisms aren't hard to miss nor is the obvious genius that oozes from them. Yet this manga's complexity and depth as a work is overlooked because of it's in your face and abnormal subject matter. It's simply watered down to a unusually dark and incredibly fun shonen, while this is certainly true you shouldn't label this manga as only that. Chainsaw Man isn't just a fun dark shonen, just like its characters and topics this manga as a whole is multi dimensional. Ranging from social commentary, clever symbolism, dark visual metaphors, interpretive topics, and twisted allegories Tatsuki Fujimoto jam packs this story with layers of it's own. This makes Chainsaw Man all the more interesting and exciting to look into. I can't tell you how many times I was blown away from realizing the foreshadowing that took place in the first couple chapters or the eery symbolism that I missed that was masked as something normal. This calculated planning ahead and evident dedication to a detailed plot had me awestruck. Tatsuki Fujimoto manages to pull plot twists out of his asscrack from the surface, but in actuality it is set up in an elegantly meticulous way. Leading to string together every action up until that very point into a sick bracelet of events that horrifyingly take the story up several notches once the realization sets in. You won't realize it until the end and that's one of the highlights of this manga. I'm trying to avoid spoilers here so to be arbitrary it was unpredictable yet it didn't lack any sense. I truly enjoyed every second I spent reading Chainsaw Man. I was always shocked from how good it was. Overall Chainsawman is amazing and the next part will be even better. The characters are great, the artstyle is distinctive and detailed, it has a exciting plot and unique worldbuilding. So what are you waiting for? Read it.

I'll be honest. This isn't a bad manga at all, in fact I think it's quite good. But people are seriously overhyping it. The main character, Denji is one of the best mcs I've seen a while in anime and manga. But the story isn't really all that. Yeah it's entertaining but it's really overrated.

I've heard of this manga series a good few times by Joey (The Anime Man) and also, people who like No Guns Life. At first it was a pretty good start because we got to explore how our main character, Denji got around to being a chainsaw dude in the first place. I really liked his attitude of being laid back and always saying funny remarks with some of the characters. I did considerably get a few chuckles out of the comedy sides of things involved in this manga. I mean , this manga isn't THAT terrible but I think the boob jokes were rather childish and pretty much boring. As well, I felt the other characters weren't really taken seriously with character development.

Spoiler: The story has a good pace making it easier to binge. The author also doesn't shy away from killing off characters which is a huge plus in my opinion because one of the huge problems that the shounen genre has shown is that they don't really like to take the risk of killing a character people may really love. Eg. Fairy Tail, the author acts like they'll kill a character then BAM they magically are alive (fairy tail spoiler: one of the characters being Gajeel), or they'll easily kill off the enemy team but not really the ally team making this manga even better. The art style is also so beautiful for one of the fight scenes it wasn't only the fighting that I loved about it but it was also the art style of that fight scene making me give it a 9/10.
