The Ultimate Guide to Every ‘Chainsaw Man’ Arc
So you’ve fallen in love with Power, have you? Not the concept. The girl. Devil. Fiend. Whatever.
I’ve seen it before. You were surfing the internet when you came across a dude with a chainsaw for a head. You thought, “hey that looks quirky, I should give it a go.” You lay your eyes on the first episode of Chainsaw Man. Pretty cool, right? Who wouldn’t want to partner up with a cute chainsaw puppy and slay devils for a living? “I’ll give the next few episodes a try. I’m not committing to anything. There are other shows in my life,” you say.
And then you meet Power. The devil crushin’, cat lovin’, blood suckin’ girl of your nightmares. She’s everything you could ever want. Tough with a tender interior. Funny as hell (literally). And cute to boot! You just wanna be around her! You’re committed. You’re in it to win it. You wanna settle down and put a ring on this series. You wanna see it all—every arc in both the manga and the anime. But how do they correspond? How do you watch them in the right order?
This is how you do it.
