Tatsuki Fujimoto’s hit series Chainsaw Man debuts a new motion-comic style video to promote the manga’s new collaboration with jewelry company Tasaki.
The luxury jewelry company Tasaki is collaborating with the Chainsaw Man franchise to release new jewelry inspired by the hit series.
A one-minute long promotional video posted by Shonen Jump News-Unofficial and features several of the products offered in Tasaki’s “Danger” line. The video utilizes a unique manga cut-out style showing the Chainsaw Man characters alongside the new jewelry, which will be available in stores across Japan starting June 29. Although Tasaki’s “Danger” line previously existed on its own, the newest additions to the collection all feature Chainsaw Man-themed designs. These items can be viewed on Tasaki’s official website.
Most of the “Danger” jewelry is made from either white or yellow gold and accented using Akoya pearls. Many of the designs for the “Danger” jewelry line incorporate the use of teeth-like shapes, which makes the “Danger” label feel fitting. The “Danger Signature” ring, which is shown in the promo, is designed to look like an open mouth with visible teeth. Made of 18-karat gold, the current listed price for this ring via the online retail platform Farfetch is $3,530 USD. Considering the amount of explict violence featured in Chainsaw Man, Tasaki’s choice to incorporate the new Chainsaw Man jewelry into their “Danger” line is rather appropriate.
The main items in the Chainsaw Man-themed line are the “Pochita Pendant” and the yellow gold “Power Necklace,” which is designed to look like the character “Power” from the manga. There is also the “Chainsaw Pendant and Ear Cuff,” a pendant that can also double as an earcuff that is studded with numerous Akoya pearls. Finally, there is the “Chainsaw Man Pendant,” a necklace featuring a pendant that looks like a large open mouth. A few of these pieces are extremely expensive. There are different versions of the Chainsaw Man pendant, the gold version costing well over $6,000 USD and a white gold version with diamonds that costs over $24,000 USD. These prices are based on current exchange rates.
Tatsuki Fujimoto’s Chainsaw Man is set in a strange alternate timeline where humans and devils inhabit the same world. In this universe, devils are born from the fears of humanity. The story revolves around a boy named Denji who, after being murdered, makes a pact with a chainsaw demon that allows him to be reborn as a human-demon hybrid with chainsaws for arms and a head. He is eventually recruited into the Public Safety Devil Hunters, an organization that aims to protect humanity from devils that threaten it.
The Chainsaw Man manga is available in English from Viz Media. An anime adaptation from studio MAPPA is scheduled to debut on Crunchyroll later this year.
