Yesterday we reported here through Josu_ke’s tweet that the first chapter of the second part of Chainsaw Man had reached the mark of 1 million views only on the Jump+ app, which is only for Japan.
But there is a funny but in this, that data is considering that it was night in Japan and many people had gone to sleep, now how are the views?
At an impressive 3.3 million views in Japan alone!
Chainsaw Man lives up to the hype of its anime adaptation coming in October by studio MAPPA, check out the impressive animated PV that has been released so far below:
Chainsaw Man synopsis
Denji has a simple dream—to live a happy and peaceful life, spending time with a girl he likes. This is a far cry from reality, however, as Denji is forced by the yakuza into killing devils in order to pay off his crushing debts. Using his pet devil Pochita as a weapon, he is ready to do anything for a bit of cash.
Unfortunately, he has outlived his usefulness and is murdered by a devil in contract with the yakuza. However, in an unexpected turn of events, Pochita merges with Denji’s dead body and grants him the powers of a chainsaw devil. Now able to transform parts of his body into chainsaws, a revived Denji uses his new abilities to quickly and brutally dispatch his enemies. Catching the eye of the official devil hunters who arrive at the scene, he is offered work at the Public Safety Bureau as one of them. Now with the means to face even the toughest of enemies, Denji will stop at nothing to achieve his simple teenage dreams.
