What is Chainsaw Man All About?
Chainsaw Man anime is based on a manga series of the same name by Tatsuki Fuijmoto. It follows the story of a teenage boy named Denji who lives with his devil dog, Pochita. The two live their days hunting weaker devils in exchange for small amonts of money.
One day, Denji was brutally murdered. But, strangely enough, he later finds himself still alive and healthy, but with a cord sticking out of his chest. It was later revealed that Pochita revived him by giving him a heart. Now, every time Denji pulls the cord, chainsaws will start sprouting out of his body, giving him the title “Chainsaw Man.”
The anime series is scheduled to premiere on October 11.
Earlier last week, the official website for Chainsaw Man anime released a new trailer announcing the cast and a 12-episode count season. That trailer has now amassed over 9 million views, barely 2 weeks since its release.
Fans can watch the anime on TV Tokyo, Crunchyroll, and Amazon Prime.
