I'll be honest. This isn't a bad manga at all, in fact I think it's quite good. But people are seriously overhyping it. The main character, Denji is one of the best mcs I've seen a while in anime and manga. But the story isn't really all that. Yeah it's entertaining but it's really overrated.
Overhyped So I decided to buy into the hype of the manga. With how much people were raving about it. I kind of expected more. Don't get me wrong, it did have some good points, but it did not wow me like the other manga I've read. ⚠️Spoilers down below⚠️ Story 3/10 Why? Well the selling point of this manga was mainly the plot and art. But when I decided to sit down and read it. I was majorly disappointed. I would have loved to have seen more character building between Denji and Pochita, before they merged. That's what first drew me in with the manga itself. That part of their friendship ended way too early. Dragging that out more and laying on plot some more would have really benefitted the plot more. I was disappointed in the ammount of stale plot in the middle and end then. Now it was interesting enough that I completed it and don't stop reading. But I really was waiting on a wow factor. I wish it would have stopped at one manga instead of a second one. I feel like a continuation will ruin the series entirely. The ending is okay. But I feel as a wow factor, me personally, I would have loved to have seen Denji die. As he completed the goal that was set for him as Chainsaw Man. The plot really went too fast. It could have drug out more. Tbh they should have drug out the beginning and end more. The middle of the manga went on for too long that I got very bored. All in all the plot went so fast that I really didn't have enough time to absorb anything I had read or appreciate it like it could have been. Art 7/10 I feel like the art at some points was it's only selling point when some of the plot came up. The only reason I really pushed to continue the manga, was to reach the astronaut scene. But when I got there. I was lowkey disappointed. The art was fantastic. But there wasn't enough to the plot in that chapter that it lived up to the hype of that scene. I really expected more. At times the art really isn't overall that great. It either goes from 20-100. At times it's really choppy and then you get scenes that look like it comes from Berserk. The selling point of the manga is the really detailed scenes. Which I respect. They must have taken a lot of time. But I would have expected a little more consistency. Characters 5/10 Surprisingly the characters are written surprisingly well. I love the dynamics and their personalization is really clear. But unfortunately you learn their personalities so fast you don't even get the chance to savor their personality before your onto the next person. Characters like Aki, Power, and Denji had a lot of potential. I wish I would have gotten more plot on them so I could get to know them better. I feel like I was lowkey cheated. I really didn't have enough time to build feelings and a relationship with the characters. Overall 4/10 Don't get me wrong. I liked it. But I don't love it. The series carried a lot more potential than what it has. I normally rate series on the ammount of tears and emotions I felt for the series. And I didn't get any of that. This manga did not give me and sort of depression. It lowkey made me sad at times. Only when Denji and Pochita died. And when Aki died. But I didn't get enough plot with them that I outright cried for them. I would have given this series a better rating if it gave me that wow factor I'm always looking for. I fully expect the anime's selling point to be the animation and not the plot itself. Good read but not not enough for me to recommend or read the manga again.
Spoiler:The story has a good pace making it easier to binge. The author also doesn't shy away from killing off characters which is a huge plus in my opinion because one of the huge problems that the shounen genre has shown is that they don't really like to take the risk of killing a character people may really love. Eg. Fairy Tail, the author acts like they'll kill a character then BAM they magically are alive (fairy tail spoiler: one of the characters being Gajeel), or they'll easily kill off the enemy team but not really the ally team making this manga even better. The art style is also so beautiful for one of the fight scenes it wasn't only the fighting that I loved about it but it was also the art style of that fight scene making me give it a 9/10. Ps, this was me trying so hard not to spoil it and this is my first review so I hope my review doesn't sound bad :)
