When killed in hell, the devils migrate to Earth, and when killed on Earth, they migrate to hell. While on Earth, these devils form contracts that allow humans a share of their power.
The story follows Denji, who has to work for the Yakuza to clear off the debt of his dead father. He has to hunt devils and get them to the Yakuza, who will then form contracts with the captured devils for their power. Denji goes on these devil hunts together with Pochita, the manifestation of the fear of Chainsaw. On one such hunt, the Yakuza betray him and kill him to get to the Zombie Devil. Pochita then forms a contract with him and makes him the Chainsaw man. Denji then joins the Public Safety Division, the official government hired devil hunters. The rest of the story follows his adventures in the Public Health Division and his relationships with other characters.
