Chainsaw Man Anime Set For October Premiere

Upcoming animated adaptation of the Chainsaw Man manga is a highly anticipated anime series.

The intense new trailer we saw at a press event gave us a closer look at protagonist Denji and his wild transformation into the titular Chainsaw Man. It also highlights the supporting cast, like Power the Blood Devil, Aki the Devil Hunter, and the mysterious Makima.

The end of the trailer reveals that the series will debut this coming October, with confirming that it will begin streaming on the service that month as well.

“Denji is a teenage boy living with a Chainsaw Devil named Pochita,” reads the series’ synopsis. “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.”
