Chainsaw Man has revved up with the newest episode of the anime’s debut season, and with it has showed off Denji‘s bloodiest and most brutal fight yet! Denji’s been in a few notable fights in the anime’s run thus far as he continues to explore more of his abilities as the Chainsaw Man, but he and the other members of the Special Division 4 squad were suddenly trapped with the mysterious power of the Eternity Devil in their first real mission as a team together. When we last saw them in action, Denji was the only one who had a chance to stop it.
The newest episode of the series picked up right after that cliffhanger that saw Denji plunging into the maw of the Eternity Devil as he realized that the only way any of them would make it out of this is if he somehow was able to cut through the devil with his chainsaws. We get to see that in action with Episode 7 of the series as Denji tears his way through the Eternity Devil with a bloody battle that lasts three days within the hotel trap they were stuck in.
Impressive action sequence in today’s episode of Chainsaw-man.
That section was Storyboard and animated by Keiichiro Watanabe, know for his very unique style and chaotic animation.

How to Watch Denji’s Bloody Battles
Episode 7 of Chainsaw Man picks up right when Denji flies into the Eternity Devil’s mouth, and he struggles at first to deal any kind of real damage as the devil’s continuously evolving and growing body was able to fight back each and every one of Denji’s violent efforts. He’s even defeated for a bit and loses a ton of blood, but soon Denji discovers that he could heal himself and even get a little stronger the more he ate the devil’s blood. As he states, it becomes more of an infinite loop as the two devils’ powers fuel one another.
After the opening credits, it’s revealed that Denji continued to cut through the Eternity Devil for three straight days without stopping. It gets to such a point that the devil actually gives up and feels so much pain that it begs Denji to cut through its core and end the fight. Denji’s reluctant to do so at first as he doesn’t want to the fight to end, but ultimately decides to cut through the core and free them all from this long lasting trap.
