A strange déjà-vu feeling is tormenting Shinpei. It’s as if everything and everyone seems suspicious, even their shadows. The more Shinpei investigates, the more twists and mysteries arise. He relives every painful moment with each piece of puzzle he finds. This mystery and thriller manga will make you question everything!
News about a possible upcoming anime adaptation are stirring up the manga community. However, what about the manga itself? It seems like your usual isekai or shounen series. After Denji inherits his father debt from the yakuza upon his father’s death, he becomes a Devil Hunter to repay the debt. However, the yakuza betrays him (duh, they’re the mafia dudes) and he dies. End of story. Nah, just kidding. Our guy Denji has a contract with a demon so he can turn into a half human-half chainsaw hybrid and becomes a Public Safety Demon Hunter. Why? Welp, this remains to be seen! Be careful though, it’s a pretty explicit and gore-y series.
