From the studio of Attack on Titan, comes a new show Chainsaw Man that follows Denji, a teenage boy living with a Chainsaw Devil named Pochita. Due to the debt his father left behind, he has been living a rock-bottom life while repaying his debt by harvesting devil corpses with Pochita. One day, Denji is betrayed and killed. As his consciousness fades, he makes a contract with Pochita and gets revived as “Chainsaw Man” — a man with a devil’s heart.
Multiplatinum J-pop singer-songwriter and producer Kensuke Ushio debuts his new album, the first of an eventual three volumes of 11 songs to be released from the first season of the series, with additional soundtracks for arriving Wednesday, November 23 and Wednesday, December 28. Kensuke Ushio brings with him to the project a resume of solo electronic music released under the moniker “agraph” as well as scores to A Silent Voice, Space Dandy, Devilman Crybaby, Boogiepop and many other anime titles.
Of the soundtrack, composer kensuke ushio says, “When I first read the original CHAINSAW MAN, I thought, ‘what a mess!,’ and I created the music based on that initial concept. I chopped, stretched, and distorted the finished music, carefully butchering it as if I were grinding the music down – because he is a chainsaw man! This album is the result of that work – messed up chainsaw beats that were created based on that initial impulse. I hope you enjoy it.”
