The Chainsaw Devil is ready to cut his way into your heart this fall. With Studio MAPPA working to bring Chainsaw Man to the small screen in October, fans are preparing for the arrival of the anime adaptation from Tatsuki Fujimoto. Now, one cosplayer specifically has done their best to capture the aesthetic and energy of Denji's human side as the bloody adventures of this world of devils is set to bring in a lot more fans later this year.
Denji is perhaps unlike any other anime hero that we've seen before, not truly looking to save the world or protect mankind from devils, but rather, working his hardest to make sure that he has three square meals per day and a roof over his head. Originally attempting to work off a debt by working as a hitman for the mob, Denji eventually merges with his beloved canine friend, Pochita, who just so happens to harbor the power of the Chainsaw Devil. While Denji played a major role in the first part of the series, the Chainsaw Man has taken a step back from being the star of the second chapter, with the War Devil Asa Mikata seemingly taking his place.
Instagram Cosplayer Migo Mir perfectly captured the energy and aesthetic of Denji's human side, as the anime hero prepares to make his leap from the printed page of Shonen Jump to the small screen thanks to the animators at Studio MAPPA:
If you haven't had the opportunity to dive into Chainsaw Man, Crunchyroll offered the following description of the series that is one of the bloodiest in the history of anime:
"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."
