Meanwhile the official Twitter upload has over 5.4 million views. The opening also has a lot of movie references, which is a nice touch considering that the Chainsaw Man creator Tatsuki Fujimoto is a huge cinephile. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime, and they describe the story:
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.
