In the popular forum 4chan, /a/a recording taken from the public of the preview of the first episode of the anime adaptation of the manga written and illustrated by Tatsuki Fujimoto, chainsaw man. Fans reacted to an alleged “bad CG animation job”, especially in the animation of Denji’s scene, although the rest of the fans are skeptical about it. Of course, it is a poor quality recording (perhaps intentional? It turns out that it is something impressive in 2022) and this could affect the viewer’s perception of the same scene. However, the criticisms are not directed at animation in general, but at the CG animation work that can be viewed fairly reliably.
Whatever the reality, there is no denying that this recording became a trend in the forum (and outside, on social networks as well), inspiring opinions such as the following: «They get what they deserve, sons of bitches». «The MAPPA -fags will still take whatever shit you give them.” “#ThankYouMAPPA.” “This can’t be real.” “Holy crap, this is delicious karma.” “Am I supposed to be impressed? I thought this would be the best production of all time. I thought it would put AKIRA and Ghibli animation to shame. I thought the stages would be as good as Shinkai’s at least. It seems pretty conventional.” “You also have to keep in mind that this is the first fucking episode, where the studios usually put their entire budget to sell it to the public. Imagine the subsequent episodes. Ironically, it’s over.” “Damn, are they doing that bad? At least Jujutsu Kaisen traced the CG fights, although it didn’t fool anyone.” “Ok, CGI is one thing, but is the frame rate also crap?” “I can’t believe people believed in MAPPA again for a pre-animated trailer.” “Bleach winning the season like it always does.” “Fuck, the truth is that it looks like shit, why would they create so much hype if it was going to be like that?” “I always knew, no trust the hype, or MAPPA ».
Synopsis for Chainsaw Man
The story takes place in a world where Demons threaten the peace of humans, making them targets to be eliminated. Denji is a young and depressed man who has sold several of his organs and works as a lumberjack and demon hunter to pay off his deceased father’s debt. Denji owns a dog (who is also a demon) named Pochita, who has chainsaws and which he uses to do his work. This is explained because humans can make contracts with demons. After returning home from a job, Denji is called in by a Yakuza to infiltrate a building and assassinate another demon. However, the plan was a trap to kill him as part of a Yakuza contract with the demon, gaining them more power. But Pochita comes to Denji’s aid and bonds with him, becoming a half-man, half-demon and acquiring Pochita’s chainsaws. Font: 4chan
