Denji is a young man with a simple dream: to live a happy and peaceful life with a girl he likes. However, Denji is forced by the yakuza into killing devils to pay off his debts. So, using his pet devil dog Pochita as a weapon, he is ready to do anything for a bit of cash.
Until he is murdered by a devil in contract with the yakuza. But Pochita merges with Denji’s body and grants him the powers of a chainsaw devil. Now he can turn parts of his body into chainsaws.
