Crunchyroll will mimic Chainsaw Man in the United States, as it has for many other MAPPA anime in the past, including Jujutsu Kaisen and Attack on Titan Final Season Part 2.
The trailer opens with a shot of Makima, one of the series' main characters flanked by two Devil hunters, as she enters a warehouse stuffed with murdered bodies. The trailer continues with a series of images of protagonist Denji, his fellow Devil hunters Aki Hayakawa and Power, and Makima going about their daily lives before progressing into a montage of a now-transformed Denji dodges attacks and smashing Devils with his chainsaw hands.
Tatsuki Fujimoto's critically acclaimed and ultra-violent action-horror manga follows Denji, a teenage orphan living in a world inhabited by Devils, supernatural monsters born out of human fears.
Denji is forced to work as a Devil hunter in order to pay back the debt owed by his absence. Pochita's death results in Denji becoming a Devil-human hybrid with the ability to summon chainsaws from his body.
The first part of the manga, the Public Safety arc, which ended on December 14, 2020, will be adapted by the anime. The second arc of the Chainsaw Man manga has just begun, with new chapters published every Tuesday and available to read on Shonen Jump.
