On the floor, Chainsaw Man appears like a gory, cut-’em-up anime with protagonist Denji changing into this hybrid of a person and chainsaw. It’s all a part of his new job after bonding together with his demonic canine, Pochita, the place he will get to kill “devils” (i.e. demons) to maintain the world secure. Of course, all Denji’s involved with is incomes a wage, shaping an intriguing story a few morally corrupt world and a sinister pressure lurking that is positive to deliver out a heroic aspect even Denji does not know he has inside.
It’s a typical anime/manga story, to be sincere, nodding to the likes of Naruto, Sasuke, One-Punch Man and so many different iconic heroes who underwent a journey they by no means anticipated with all their energy. Interestingly, given the graphic nature and relentless violence of Chainsaw Man, it does function proof that one other related berserker property, Guns Akimbo, would make a just-as-thrilling anime.
Guns Akimbo Turned Miles right into a Weapon, Literally
In Chainsaw Man, it is enjoyable seeing Denji infused with chainsaws in his fingers and face. Little did he know that Pochita dying and bonding to him was going to make Denji this weapon of mass destruction, however he is having fun with life as he will get to reside his dream: killing demons and earning profits. Ironically, the protagonist within the 2019 action-comedy, Guns Akimbo, Miles (Daniel Radcliffe), turned a hybrid as effectively, after the terrorist group, Skizm, embedded weapons into his fingers.
They pressured Miles to take part in on-line loss of life matches, with chief Riktor hating how Miles trolled their love of bloodshed and toxicity on-line. He employed his personal killer, Nix, to hunt Miles, producing one of many on-line platform’s most grueling affairs, capitalizing on social media and the sadists on many platforms. Thankfully, Miles and Nix would group up, killing the American chapter off. Nix sadly died, however this ending impressed Miles much more to hone his craft and hunt the opposite chapters, in different nations as effectively.
Guns Akimbo’s Anime Can Focus on Miles’ Army
Unfortunately, Guns Akimbo’s director, Jason Lei Howden, had a Twitter meltdown with critics, which the studio, Saban, did not like. The movie ultimately bought launched however the general reception was lukewarm, ending hopes of a sequel. Still, it is developed a cult following since then as a result of its bonkers idea, which might be excellent for the anime medium. And make no mistake, Chainsaw Man has confirmed the way it may work, shaping a narrative with Miles dropping himself to his energy, the identical means Denji may.
A Guns Akimbo sequel can dissect Miles working with people like Nix, who misplaced households, had been manipulated after which weaponized by Skizm — in addition to legislation enforcement, which has been corrupted by way of Skizm shopping for off brokers. This offers an opportunity for Miles to create a job pressure of hackers and troopers, improve his pistols and go after Skizm’s different hunters. Skizm may comply with the John Wick route and put a bounty out on Miles and his allies. In the method, it may create new human-hybrids bonded to weapons, not having to fret about finances constraints due to the anime medium.
Fans may see killers with swords hooked up to their fingers, rocket blasters of their shoulder, or lasers of their eyes, à la Cyclops and Kano, upgrading what Denji and Miles are. This creates room for bloody wars that know no bounds, and a Miles who’d be torn on his future as he continues to bask within the kill. He does love his ex, Nova, and she or he’s making him a hero in her comics, so this may craft the emotional, human a part of the story, revolving round if Miles and Nova will be collectively regardless of his mission.
It’d be a remix of Chainsaw Man‘s Denji being utilized by Makima within the Public Safety Unit, probably exploring a romance, with Miles persevering with Guns Akimbo’s brutal story in a less-supernatural means. Ultimately, Miles must select between love, struggle and his ego, which does appear to be the trail Denji’s paradoxically following, too.
