Chainsaw Man is one of the biggest hits to hit Weekly Shonen Jump in recent years, with over 11 million copies released. Retailers have reported that they are having trouble keeping the manga in stock. The anime series takes place in an alternate timeline version of 1997, where the Soviet Union still exists and humans coexist with demons. The story focuses on Denji, a young man who merges with the chainsaw demon Pochita to become the genuine Chainsaw Man. Denji eventually begins working as a Demon Hunter, and is tasked with defeating the Gun Devil, a demon who caused the worst massacre in human history.
