Created by イヨくんの【あつ森アイランド, the re-imagined prologue turns the characters into Animal Crossing redesigns with round faces and spheres for hands. Some scenes that were a bit sombre have been slightly revised, such as changing the original scene where Denji hugs Pochita in front of the corpse monument to a scene where Pochita is now a ball that Denji bounces. The office scene associated with Attack of the Killer Tomatoes changes to a different kind of office with posters by tanuki Tom Nook and Morning Musume’s single “Sōda! We’re Alive”. In this version, Denji transforms into Chainsaw Man by wearing a black mask and a beanie Chainsaw Man.

While much of the opening is light, one of the scenes is clearly more ominous. In the original, Denji kneels to follow Makima as she pulls his leash like a dog. In the Animal Crossing video, Makima appears to be pulling Denji against his will as he struggles. Previously, the creator has created many Animal Crossing remake videos for series like Spy x Family, Demon Slayer, Tokyo Revengers, and One Piece.
