Synopsis: Denji has a simple dream—to live a happy and peaceful life, spending time with a girl he likes. This is a far cry from reality, however, as Denji is forced by the yakuza into killing devils in order to pay off his crushing debts. Using his pet devil Pochita as a weapon, he is ready to do anything for a bit of cash. Unfortunately, he has outlived his usefulness and is murdered by a devil in contract with the yakuza. However, in an unexpected turn of events, Pochita merges with Denji's dead body and grants him the powers of a chainsaw devil. Now able to transform parts of his body into chainsaws, a revived Denji uses his new abilities to quickly and brutally dispatch his enemies. Catching the eye of the official devil hunters...
HM Queen Elizabeth II, the UK's longest-serving monarch, has died at Balmoral aged 96, after reigning for 70 years.
She died peacefully on Thursday afternoon at her Scottish estate, where she had spent much of the summer.
The Queen came to the throne in 1952 and witnessed enormous social change.
Her son King Charles III said the death of his beloved mother was a "moment of great sadness" for him and his family and that her loss would be "deeply felt" around the world.

Despite losing his foot and sustaining some terrible injuries Dorshe continues to fight so Hiling can escape.
His wounds look fatal and his fate grim but just as we feel that death is inevitable one of Bebin’s snakes Mitsumata appears from the ground and takes out the remaining beasts that had attacked Dorshe! This timely rescue came because Hiling had healed this very snake when it was about to die.
Dorshe and Ann are whisked away to safety and it looks like everyone will come out of this fight with their lives… But then Gigan makes a sudden appearance and manages to overpower Mitsumata who gets beaten badly. Just as he is about to land the killer blow however, he inexplicitly collapses! Where did that attack come...
Things kick off right where we left things with Miranjo declaring her desire to bring the kingdom to ruin. Dorshe and Hiling are shocked over this bold admission. Dorshe takes a moment to reflect on this sudden outburst and then begins to ponder whether it was Miranjo who brought down Bosse’s wife. He does not have long to reflect as the fiends guarding Miranjo come to bounce! He gives them a good wallop!
But the battle is not what it seems, and it takes the outburst of Ann to say this early beating is but a ruse to sus the men’s range of weapons. There is a long drawn out pause as each party sizes up their foe waiting for the other to strike first. The tension is soon palatable, but it is the beasts who blink first going...
The Autumn season was on the whole stronger than summer as while not many shows were truly outstanding many were very enjoyable especially if it is a genre you dig into. This season was especially good in the horror department as we got two good ones with Mieruko-chan and Tricornered Window. Beyond that there is the highly anticipated anime of Jobless Reincarnation part 2 and 86 that for the most part largely delivered on their promises. Whilst the second part of Jobless Reincarnation is not on the same level as its predecessor, it was very good watch and if you liked the first part I would recommend watching it. It is certainly the best isekai of the season. 86 part 2 was a vast improvement over season one but due to production issues...
