Crunchyroll’s Spring slate has been so freaking great. Of course, it will be a bummer once we are finished with Spring, but Summer will have some exciting anime coming, possibly Chainsaw Man. This action horror anime has no official release date, but rumors say late Summer early Fall. Produced by MAPPA, I’m sure the fans of the manga are excited to see Chainsaw Man on Crunchyroll.
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).
After watching the teaser, I was practically foaming at the mouth. I immediately watched it again. I love horror and lately, I haven’t been giving the genre enough love.
Chainsaw Man’s Synopsis
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.
We will be covering Chainsaw Man on the Anime-Versal Reviews Podcast when it’s released. Brian, Kyle, and I can’t wait to dive into this anime! Check it out on Crunchyroll later this year.
