Chainsaw Man Anime Comes to Crunchyroll, Intense First Trailer Arrives



If you are an anime fan and also a chainsaws fan, today is an important day for you. Crunchyroll has announced that it has acquired the streaming rights to Tatsuki Fujimoto’s Chainsaw Man, and to celebrate the announcement, there’s a trailer for the show.

There’s no official launch date for the next Chainsaw Man series, but it will arrive later this year and will be simulcast from Japan on Crunchyroll, subtitled and dubbed. Check out the first localized trailer below.

If the title seems to you on its own, it gets weirder. The manga follows a teenager named Denji who lives with Pochita, a chainsaw devil. Denji finds himself with a huge debt because of his father, and to pay it off, Denji works with Pochita to harvest the devil’s corpses. However, Denji dies, but comes back to life as Chainsaw Man, a supernatural being with chainsaws sticking out of his arms…and one from his head.

“With dark humor, dynamic characters and a sharp story, Chainsaw Man is one of the most anticipated new series this year, and we’re extremely excited to bring it to fans on the Crunchyroll service,” said Asa Suehira, Chief Content Officer at Crunchyroll. . “Anime fans will be up all night thinking about the spectacular visuals and high-octane action.”

MAPPA (Maruyama Animation Produce Project Association) will produce the animation for the film. The studio is best known for its work on Attack on Titan Final Season and JUJUTSU KAISEN. Kensuke Ushio (The Heike Story; Devilman: Crybaby; Space Dandy) will compose the music for the upcoming series.
