The art style and character designs were the main features that drew me towards reading this manga. I find Fujimoto’s way of drawing to be very visually appealing, and it only took seeing one of the colored double-pages to cause me to research and ultimately begin reading Chainsaw Man without knowing much else about it. It may come across that I am easy to please; however, unique art styles are one of my major pulls. The intriguing synopsis was the cherry on top. Without giving anything away, the plot was clearly well thought out with lots of twists and unexpected-yet-justified deaths that kept the story interesting. Unfortunately, the storylines were often very vague/fast-paced with how they were presented to the reader. They were hard to follow, and therefore, hard to remember. Especially during the second half of the manga, lots of happenings simply happened and were never fully (or at the very least, straight-out) explained, leaving things for the reader to interpret on their own – something that is not my strong suit. This might not be the case for everyone, but I found myself left in the dust many times during the course of reading. In fact, I will likely be rereading this manga for the sake of clarification...alongside the fact that it was simply enjoyable. Despite unclarity, seeing the interactions between characters and their reactions to the situation were simple enough to keep me reading even if I wasn't confused. The extensive cast of characters are well-written with distinctive and recognizable personalities and appearances. It is very entertaining to see what will play out next between them all, which is a key component of any story. That, alongside the simpler aspects of the plot and well-written humor, kept me reading until the end. Overall, Chainsaw Man is definitely worth giving a read for great characters at the very least. To me, Denji is the most relatable main character I’ve ever seen in any anime or manga. I find myself sharing his sense of humor and desires when it comes to being a teenager. Though, if you tire of sexual innuendos and crude humor quickly, this manga might not be the best choice for you. It is most frequent throughout the first few portions of the story, and is, in fact, the driving point of the plot for quite a while, but it dies down some once the story starts to get battle heavier and more intense. Clearly, if I was able and willing to reach the end of this manga despite not fully comprehending the plot, then there must be some other draw that kept me reading. In short, Chainsaw Man is a manga that I recommend to anyone who likes things fast-paced and serious with a touch of humor throughout. I will be gladly waiting for the second arc once it is released.
