This is what Chainsaw Man is about:
Denji lives in abject poverty with his only friend: a chainsaw devil named Pochita. His father left him with a huge mountain of debt and since then Denji has been swinging from one low point to the next. Together with Pochita, he hunts down devils in order to pay off his excessive debt and lead a normal life.
Luck isn't kind to him and so one day Denji is betrayed and stabbed in the back. As his consciousness fades, he makes a contract with Pochita and is resurrected as "Chainsaw Man" – a man with a devil's heart.
