Chainsaw Man Anime Will Premiere in October, New Trailer Reveals

Chainsaw Man's Japanese voice actors were introduced in a new trailer released by MAPPA on Friday, along with the announcement that the series will premiere in October.  

Like Jujutsu Kaisen and Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2, Crunchyroll will stream Chainsaw Man in the United States. 

Makima, one of the show's main characters, walks into a warehouse filled with mutilated bodies in the trailer's opening shot.  

A series of shots of Denji and his fellow Devil hunters Aki Hayakawa and Power and Makima going about their daily lives is intercut with scenes showing a transformed Denji dodging attacks and hacking at Devils with his chainsaw hand 


The series follows Denji, a teenage orphan who lives in a world populated by Devils, supernatural monsters born out of human irrational fears. 

Pochita, Denji's pet Chainsaw Devil, is compelled to work as a Devil hunter to repay the debt left by his father's absence. 

A betrayed Denji makes a contract with Pochita, fusing the creature with his dying heart to transform into Chainsaw Man, a terrifyingly powerful Devil-human hybrid with the ability to summon chainsaws from his body.
