I’ve been sweating fucking Chainsaw Man since last year’s announcement of its anime adaptation. Have I used this time to read the manga? You know the answer, don’t make me feel like a piece of shit. Instead, enjoy this goddamn glorious trailer for the anime, which drops this October.
Written and illustrated by Tatsuki Fujimoto, the Chainsaw Man manga series is getting an anime adaptation from MAPPA, and we’ve learned it’s coming to Crunchyroll this October!

Based on the widely popular and award-winning manga of the same name written and illustrated by Tatsuki Fujimoto (Fire Punch; Look Back; Goodbye, Eri) and serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump, Chainsaw Man is directed by Ryū Nakayama (Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia; The Rising of the Shield Hero).
In Chainsaw Man, “Denji is a teenage boy living with a Chainsaw Devil named Pochita. Due to the debt his father left behind, he has been living a rock-bottom life while repaying his debt by harvesting devil corpses with Pochita.
“One day, Denji is betrayed and killed. As his consciousness fades, he makes a contract with Pochita and gets revived as “Chainsaw Man”–a man with a devil’s heart.”
“With dark humor, dynamic characters and a sharp story, Chainsaw Man is one of the most anticipated new series this year, and we are wickedly 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.”
