Denji has a simple dream: to live a happy and peaceful life, spending time with the girl he loves. But this dream is far from reality, as Denji is forced by the yakuza to kill demons to pay off his crushing debts. Using his demon Pochita as a weapon, he is willing to do anything for a little money.
Unfortunately, he is no longer useful and is murdered by a devil under contract with the yakuza. However, in an unexpected turn of events, Pochita merges with Denji’s dead body and grants him the powers of a chainsaw demon. Now able to turn parts of his body into chainsaws, Denji, once resurrected, uses his new abilities to quickly and brutally eliminate his enemies.
Attracting the attention of the official demon hunters who arrived on the scene, he was offered a position in the Public Safety Bureau. Now that he has the means to face the toughest enemies, Denji will stop at nothing to realize his simple teenage dreams.
