CHAINSAW MAN SERIES REVIEW
From the internationally acclaimed haunted and depraved mind of Manga writer/artist Tatsuki Fujimoto comes Chainsaw Man. Yes, he’s pretty much what he sounds like: a man made of chainsaws revving up from hell to chop of demons and cop some feels. Denji, a lonely orphan adolescent with despair for a pillow and his father’s debt for a blanket, lives a cold life of scrounging for leftovers outside of restaurants and performing odd jobs for the Yakuza. Denji ends up befriending a dying demon dog named Pochita and together they form an unbreakable bond that’s considered taboo amongst the human population. After a chance encounter with a particular nasty demon, Pochita offers up his heart to Denji granting him the power of hell’s engine to rev up the fear in his enemies and spread violent justice across the land: the power of the Devil Chainsaw Man. This attracts the attention of Makima, a high ranking public safety devil hunter. Under her command, he’ll team up with Aki, a by-the-books stoic devil-hunter out for vengeance. He’ll also become best buds with a fiend named Power, an abrasive bombshell corpse inhabited by a devil who’ll do just about anything for praise. Bradly, Jena, Dogget, and T.C. discuss their favourite animes in comparison to this 2022 contender, and ponder over Denji’s profound quest to the grope some boobies.

Bradly Martin (Screener Squad, Eye on the Prize, Breakfast Pub)
Bradly Martin was born in the united states and grew up on a healthy diet of sports, films, and books. A rather shy lad who kept to himself, Bradly soon discovered the best way to know a person was to know what people liked. Throughout the years Bradly became a fan of many things and a fanatic of none. From Doctor Dre, to Doctor Strange and the who’s who of Whos. From Playstation to the Dreamcast and Marvel to DC. From LeBron James to James Bond and Lord of the Rings to Lord Palmerston (or Pitt the Elder if you agree with Wade Boggs) and is a huge fan of dad jokes and randomly obscure Simpsons references. Armed with a vast knowledge of comics, films, and pop culture. Bradly traveled the world making friends and sharing takes. As a young man Bradly married the love of his life young and grew older every year with each new child brought into the brood. If trends continue, Scientists predict that .2% of Canada (where Bradly and family reside) will be populated by Bradly’s children by the year 2029. You can hear him leading and listening to his favorite critics on the Screener Squad and Eye on the prize and maybe even provide some comments of his own.
Jena Perry (Screener Squad)
Jena Perry. Aka Luna. Aka Dion. Aka Memori. Aka Dog whisperer. Aka whiskey connoisseur. As you can see, depending on when you met this Oakland, California native, you have experienced a completely different person, each time. After finally deciding on a 13+year career choice as a Videographer and Radio Personality, Jena balances her time between pursuing her Doctorate in Philosophy, providing insightful and funny critiques on films and Television, raising her daughter and dog in Ohio, and constantly fighting off the existential dread that is being a dope black woman in America in the 20th century.
Danny Dogget (Screener Squad)
Hey persons, it’s your favorite canine Dogget! As many of you know, I don’t identify as a critic as much as a classy shock jock. That being said, I do my best to give all of you a well-balanced review filled with my true opinions and hopefully a few laughs. You can occasionally find me on other persons podcast like Mission Impodible (that’ll be 10 dollars Nathan). For the most part, you can find me doing reviews on Oneofus.net.
