Staff Reviews

The best superhero/horror/romance/comedy manga ever made? Denji is a poverty-stricken teenager, saddled with enormous debt he inherited from his dead father. At the end of his rope, he encounters Pochita, a very cute demon with a chainsaw for a nose. When Denji is killed by his evil debtors, Pochita saves him by becoming Denji's heart, and with their powers combined, they form the hyper-violent hero Chainsaw Man. Over the top action and irreverent humor are just the surface of this incredible story about elites taking advantage of the poor and the horrors and traumas inherent in our capitalist society. Anyone who reads manga must give this a try. — Reilly Hadden
