While the manga fans know what Chainsaw Man is all about, for the ones who haven’t read the manga, let’s take a quick look at the characters, plot, and what the story is all about.
Everything about Chainsaw Man?
Chainsaw Man is a ridiculously gory and comedic horror manga by Tatsuki Fujimoto. The manga plot is set in a world where human fears lead to the creation of devils. The devils created have powers proportional to human fears. On the flip side, there are Devil Hunters, people who specialize in killing and employing these devils.
The protagonist Denji, born in poverty, becomes a devil hunter to clear off his deceased father’s debts to the yakuza. Along the ride, it features a chilling and gruesome story with interesting characters all along. For those who missed out on the Chainsaw Man anime trailer, we’re embedding the trailer below for you to watch.
Where will Chainsaw Man stream online?
The first question that comes to every fan after hearing about Chainsaw Man is the platform it will stream on. For the most part, for those wondering if Chainsaw Man will stream on Netflix, Crunchyroll, or Funimation. Well, so far, there’s been no concrete information on the same.
If a rumor is believed, Chainsaw Man anime could stream on Netflix. However, take this information with a bit of salt. Meanwhile, looking at MAPPA’s previous popular anime releases, including Jujutsu Kaisen and AOT on Crunchyroll, fans can expect the platform to host Chainsaw Man too.
However, it’s too soon to say anything specific on this. Any information about the anime’s streaming platform will be revealed as it gets closer to the release date.
When will the Chainsaw Man anime be released?
While we know that the anime is bound to release sometime in 2022; however, we do not know about the exact release date since no information about Chainsaw Man anime’s release date or month has been revealed by MAPPA yet.
Currently, with its hands full with Attack on Titan’s final season and Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2, it’s expected that Chainsaw Man anime might come later this year.
Finally, with no specific release date in sight, the anime is bound to be released in 2022. In addition, the streaming platform is also not known as of now. However, we’ll make sure to create a follow-up article as soon as anything concrete on Chainsaw Man anime comes out.
