Warning: Major spoilers for Chainsaw Man Manga ahead
Chainsaw Man anime started showing Denji hunting devils for an organization from whom his father had taken debts when he was alive. Now, Denji has the responsibility to pay off the debts. One day, after getting betrayed by the debt collector, Denji gets brutally killed, and that’s when his pet devil Pochita sacrifices his life to bring the boy back to life, making him the Chainsaw Man.

Who is Aki Hayakawa in Chainsaw Man?
Aki Hayakawa is one of the Devil Hunters working under Makima in her Special Division 4. He joins the devil-hunting organization to avenge the death of his family members, who were killed by the Gun Devil when he was a child. Aki is blunt and straightforward with his colleagues, and he doesn’t like people who don’t take their job seriously. For instance, when Makima introduces him to Denji, he doesn’t get along with him initially because he thinks that Denji only wants to impress Makima.
Aki is a proficient swordsman, and he is also good at hand-to-hand combat. Apart from this, he has enhanced durability and reflexes, which makes him one of the best devil hunters in the organization.
In the manga, Aki dies in the most brutal fashion and gets fused with the Gun Devil after Makima betrays him and makes a contract with the devil.
