very gritty story featuring an immaculately loveable cast as well as rough but good-looking art. i especially loved its audacity in depicting disgusting and gorey imagery as well as the fact that it's not at all afraid to kill of characters left and right. also, while not being too relatable, denji feels quite real as a main character, and i at least, was easily able to empathize with him. great shounen.

Bloody mature JUMP title

Fire Punch didn't keep my attention but this did. Love how this story starts out unapologetically horny through our MC Denji, which is fairly accurate for a teenage boy. The characters are great. Denji has a good sibling relationship with Power. It's hard to depict a sibling-like relationship between a girl and boy without it veering into romantic subtext.

There's plenty of gore. The character designs are inventive. Don't get attached to characters, they're easily replaceable. Another rare notable thing about CSM is that it's a shounen title with a female antagonist, that doesn't happen often.

"chainsaw man" is probably the most NSFW series among the ones i ever followed to their end; it's like an addiction; i tried to drop it several times but couldn't; it was entertaining all the way & i'm glad that i continued following it

The whirling dervish of chainsaw based moral evisceration!

[as of chapter 88]

Chainsaw Man is rough, sleazy and fundamentally nihilistic. Ceaseless destruction and death is on the menu, and the plot isn't slowing down service. It is horrible, but it is also horror. Having watched several videos recommending "Chainsaw Man" and distinctly remembering some mentions of the MCs emotional development as being uplifting I feel I've been sold a bag. The MC has had a HORRIBLE life, and is a rather disgusting and strange individual partially as a result of it (possibly also because he has a devil for a heart). He does develop and change as the manga goes on, struggling against hedonistic sexual desire and nihilism, but has he conquered them? Certainly not at the point I've got to in the story. I'm not sure he will either given the current situation he has found himself in... And that's the real struggle for me! Yes, the story is littered with rather strange, and raw pieces of emotional ammunition. But broken people are everywhere, both by design and as a result of the circumstances they find themselves in. It's hard to feel like you are witnessing the birth of the transcendent when you've just witnessed the latest characters go through the blender. I would like to give propts to the rather unorthodox art style though (whether it born through ineptitude or conscious deliberation). It magnifies the raw, unfiltered show on display quite fantastically. Character replies are given in a single loosely constructed frame, almost begging to be read in to. What do they really feel? Fellow reviewers would do well to recognise that not all stories benefit from the universally acclaimed art of One Punch Man or Vagabond. After all, the mind of the maniac is unlikely to draw you a pretty picture. So, while I wait for the end of Chainsaw Man, and debate whether there is anything redemptive or uplifting about this journey, I do recommend it purely for the ride itself. It's manic and disgusting with some morbidly creative ideas and arcs. It even strikes with a red hot poker of crystalline emotional clarity every now and then.

Well thought of

If you like plot and plot under plot you will love this since everything is actually planned out from the very beginning. I'm at chapter 90 and everything seems to be explained from the very beginning. You yourself never know there's anything to be explained in the first place and thought everything is straightforward - but its not.

The characters are all interesting in their own right. Never, never EVER be invested in anyone since author love to yank everyone around. Just appreciate that they exist and give a rich colour to this manga.

The art is great and raw, mangaka know how to make it flow and let readers be pumped.

Highly recommended

Superb art. Unpredictable storyline. Humanity and humor. Fight scenes have clear transitions. I also particularly enjoy how Fujimoto sometimes gets creative with his panel layouts and sound effects placement.

I just love this manga, I can't get enough of it. Every chapter I am so hyped to read. Never have a read a manga that just have me smiling, laughing, and clapping at every chapter. The humor, horror, action and drama is just on point and it claps back at your regular shounen. Chain saw man has brough back that shounen love that I haven't felt in a long time. This is series will always have a place in my heart, and hats off to the writer.

So in the beginning I didnt really got hooked to the story and it was just a read out of bordedom and even now I think the story is a 4/10 but this think fking packs action in its fight.
Just read ch.37 and it fk*ig kicked ass.
Would recommend just for the fights alone

"It seems like the kind of manga that I'll like despite its flaws. The plot so far has been a bit average, same with the characters, but the art and its inherent coolness as an action series with a decent amount of gore will probably have me coming back for more."

My first reaction was kinda whatever, but I read up until chapter 8 in one go.

It sort of feels like it's skipping the first arc of its story, but that's not a bad thing as the first chapter gives you the idea.
