Mashing-up one of the season’s goriest anime with a mellowed-out island sandbox video game might seem like an odd combination, but that’s exactly what one YouTube creator set out to do.    
On Friday, Twitter user @yo_dakun shared the thumbnail for a video on his YouTube channel Iyokun’s Atsumori Island which meticulously recreates the opening sequence for “Chainsaw Man” frame-by-frame on the Nintendo Switch smash-hit “Animal Crossing: New Horizons.”

Iyo-kun used some creative work-arounds for the opening’s distinct and graphic content, from swapping a towering devil with a giant-sized Isabelle to recreating Power’s revealing two-piece with a bikini shirt.
The talented “Animal Crossing” creator has reproduced a number of anime openings with the game’s cutesey chibi style, including the first opening sequence of 2013’s “Attack on Titan.”
The popularity of “Chainsaw Man,” which centers on a devil hunter with the ability to turn his body parts into chainsaws, has been bolstered by its electric opening. Backed by the hard-hitting rock track “Kickback,” the sequence not only caught the attention of otakus, but also eagle-eyed cinephiles, who spotted a litany of references to some of the most iconic films of the past few decades, including “Pulp Fiction” and “No Country for Old Men.”
