Chainsaw Man Opening Gets Adorable Animal Crossing Makeover

Nov 15, 2022 · 8


Chainsaw Man's dark opening, "KICK BACK," sung by Kenshi Yonezu, gets a lovable Animal Crossing overhaul.

Created by イヨくんの【あつ森アイランド】, the re-imagined opening transforms the characters into Animal Crossing redesigns with a round face and spheres for hands. Some of the scenes that proved to be a little too bleak received a light-hearted revamp, such as changing the original scene of Denji hugging Pochita in front of the corpse monument to one where Pochita is now a ball that Denji bounces. The office scene that references Attack of the Killer Tomatoes changes into a different kind of office with posters of the tanuki Tom Nook and Morning Musume's single "Sōda! We're Alive." In this version, Denji changes into Chainsaw Man by wearing a black face mask and a Chainsaw Man beanie.

There Are More Animal Crossing x Anime Videos

Although much of the opening is light-hearted, one of the scenes is decidedly more ominous. In the original, Denji follows Makima on his hands and knees as she pulls on his leash like a dog. In the Animal Crossing video, Makima appears to be dragging Denji against his will as he flails about. The creator has created numerous Animal Crossing remake videos in the past for series like Spy x Family, Demon Slayer, Tokyo Revengers and One Piece.

Developed by Nintendo and created by Katsuya Eguchi and Hisashi Nogami, Animal Crossing is a social simulation video game series. The game allows players to live in a village, do different activities like fishing, gathering and bug catching, and live alongside their anthropomorphic animal neighbors. The 2020 release Animal Crossing: New Horizons received critical acclaim, selling over 40 million copies worldwide, most likely due to many people staying at home during the first year of the COVID pandemic. The game dethroned Pokémon's 26-year reign as Japan's all-time best-selling game.

Tatsuki Fujimoto first published Chainsaw Man in Weekly Shōnen Jump from December 2018 to 2020. The first part of the dark fantasy series focuses on the protagonist Denji whose life changes when he turns into the feared Devil Chainsaw Man. The second part pivots and focuses on a new protagonist named Asa Mitaka, whose body becomes host to a dangerous Devil called the War Devil, who wants nothing more than to defeat Chainsaw Man. The manga has over 18 million copies in circulation as of October 2022 and has won several awards, including Best Manga at the Harvey Awards. An anime adaptation produced by MAPPA is currently airing, with the first episode receiving praise for its gritty atmosphere and voice acting.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available exclusively on Nintendo Switch. Chainsaw Man streams on Crunchyroll and Hulu every Tuesday.
