It is difficult to dispute that any of the other characters in the Chainsaw Man TV anime have been as entertaining to watch as Himeno has been throughout the series. The character trailer for today, which is part of a countdown to the finale that will take place every day until next week's finale on Tuesday, focuses on the Devil Hunter and her journey during the most recent episodes of the anime.
The television anime adaptation of Chainsaw Man had its world premiere on October 11th in Japan, and Crunchyroll is now streaming the show as it airs in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).
The story takes place in a world where people's fears turn into Devils. Devils are usually evil and dangerous, and their power grows with how much fear they cause. But humans can make deals with them to use their power, and there are people called Devil Hunters whose job it is to find and hire them. Devils come from Hell and live in a cycle between Earth and Hell. When they die in Hell, they move to Earth, and when they die on Earth, they move to Hell. Primal Fears, which are very powerful Devils that have never been killed, live in Hell. The Hell Devils seems to be in charge of how people move between the two planes.
A Fiend is a Devil that has taken over the body of a dead person and taken on some of their memories and personality, this may happen in certain situations. People say that devils who naturally look like humans are kind to humans.
The story takes place in 1997 in an alternate timeline where the Soviet Union is still around and many important events, like the Holocaust, have been forgotten. There used to be nuclear weapons in this world, but they are no longer around because the Chainsaw Devil ate the Nuclear Weapons Devil. Also, there hasn't been a war since the World War because the War Devil has been weakened so much that the only reminders of war are in the media and pop culture.
Pochita is a Chainsaw Devil who lives with Denji, a teenage boy who goes by the name Denji. As a result of the debt that his father left behind, he has been forced to lead a miserable existence while he works to repay the loan by collecting the bodies of devils alongside Pochita.
One day, Denji is betrayed and slain. He makes a deal with Pochita as his consciousness begins to wane, and as a result, he is resurrected as "Chainsaw Man," a man who has the heart of the devil.
