Rev It Up Baby, The Chainsaw Man Anime Has A Release Date

One of the most awaited and hyped animes, Chainsaw Man, finally has a concrete release date on Crunchyroll.

The Chainsaw Man anime adaptation is being brought to life through Studio MAPPA, which is responsible for banger after banger including Jujutsu Kaisen, Attack on Titan: The Final Season, and a personal favourite of mine, Zombie Land Saga.

We’ve known since 2020 that the Tatsuki Fujimoto manga would be getting an anime adaptation, and it was confirmed a few months ago that Crunchyroll would be at the helm of bringing the darn thing to the rest of the world outside of Japan.

But today, a whole bucketload of information has been dropped on us regarding Chainsaw Man, including the release date, the Japanese cast and some of English dub cast. So, let’s check it all out

Chainsaw Man will start streaming exclusively on Crunchyroll from October 11th, 2022. The series will be made up of 12 episodes, each of which will release weekly on Crunchyroll from the October 11th release date onwards.

Upon the announcement of the release date, the trailer above was posted showcasing new footage from the series. Boy oh boy, it looks absolutely incredible. A second trailer was also posted today, showing off the dub voice acting which will also be available on Crunchyroll. It is currently unknown as to whether or not the English dub will be released at the same time and frequency as the original Japanese version.
