The first episode of chainsaw man is an unequivocal success. Produced by studio MAPPA and directed by Jujutsu Kaisen alum Ryū Nakayama, the 12-part anime adaptation of Tatsuki Fujimoto’s groundbreaking action-horror manga sets the tone of the series perfectly with its beautiful animation, brisk pacing, and ultra-violent action.

The latter quality is fully expressed in the climax of the first episode of the series, “Dog & Chainsaw”. In the premiere’s first showdown, Denji transforms into the human-devil hybrid Chainsaw Man to take on the show’s first major adversary, the Zombie Devil.

This is part of the course. The series derives from the manga and is set in an alternate 1997 where humanity is attacked by a race of supernatural beings known as Devils. The exact origin of Devils is not known, but what is known is that these monsters are manifestations of negative feelings and emotions shared by the collective human subconscious, similar to the phenomenon of “Curses” in Jujutsu Kaisen.

At the beginning of the episode, we see Denji and his pet Chainsaw Devil dog Pochita chasing a Tomato Devil before briefly cutting away to the aftermath of the encounter, with Denji standing triumphantly atop the creature’s gigantic corpse awaiting orders from his yakuza boss. It’s not until the final third of the episode, after Denji is betrayed by his yakuza employers in exchange for a contract with the so-called Zombie Devil-promising power, that we see Denji completely detached to spring into action.

After being hunted by a horde of zombified crowds, Denji transforms into his chainsaw man form for the first time – a bare-chested, yellow-eyed warrior with chainsaw blades sticking out of his forehead and arms crossed like a Hellraiser Cenobite with a Home Depot hardware aisle. After a short pause, Denji wastes no time springing into action, blasting past the Zombie Devil’s roaring crowds of defense and propelling himself to pierce the Devil’s skull with his head-mounted chainsaw and arm blades.

There are as many remarkable fight scenes in anime as there are drops of water in the ocean. From the work of Hiroyuki Okiura and Mitsuo Iso on the blistering firefight between Motoko Kusanagi and the spider tank in 1995 Ghost in the shell to almost any action sequence in Cowboy Bebop and My Hero Academia Yutaka Nakamura once got their hands on it, the common trait shared by almost if not every great anime fight is a solid animation direction and skilled lead animators entrusted with the time, resources and expressive freedom to break free and really to bring their own distinctive flair into a scene.

Director Ryū Nakamura, animation producer Keisuke Seshimo and action director Tatsuya Yoshihara have gathered capable animators for the task of chainsaw man to life, most of whom have previously worked on Jujutsu Kaisen and Jujutsu Kaisen 0 or anime series and movies like One Punch Man, firepower, Berserk: The Golden Age Arc, and the Kizumonogatari film trilogy. From start to finish, the climax of chainsaw manThe debut episode is an exemplary feat of craftsmanship made possible only through solid production and careful planning that allows these artists and animators to do what they do best: make dope shit.

One of the standout shots from the entire fight, and one seen briefly in the series’ third trailer, is when the Zombie Devil, in a fit of pain-induced despair, grabs Chainsaw Man with one of his entrails’ tentacles to toss it across the room and bang a nearby support beam before a concert. It’s a remarkable, dynamic sequence made possible by skilled key animation combined with impressive 3D camera mapping. The scene as a whole is stunning when you see it in action, and hints at even more impressive sequences as they will appear throughout the rest of the season.
