3. Chainsaw Man, the one where Denji is a Pervy Devil Hunter
The Chainsaw Man manga is the most popular manga today.
Chainsaw Man received critical acclaim for its dark and unpredictable storytelling, unique art style and complex characters.
It has been praised for its subversion of Shonen manga tropes and its willingness to take risks with its narrative.
The CEO of Mappa quoted, Chainsaw Man anime was indeed a monetary success but failed to have the impact they were looking for something like their prior anime release, Jujutsu Kaisen had.
This could be the reason behind Chainsaw Man season 2 having no official release date yet.
Considering the immense hype behind the anime release due to the popularity of its manga, Chainsaw Man anime underdelivered in having a cultural impact, like Demon Slayer.
As someone who absolutely loved reading the Chainsaw Man manga and then watching the anime the way it was received, I was personally unhappy.
So, I would suggest you read the manga before watching the anime.
