After fans went crazy over the English dub's world premiere at New York Comic Con, Crunchyroll will start streaming Chainsaw Man next week!

Crunchyroll is excited to announce that the English dub of Chainsaw Man will begin streaming starting Tuesday, October 25, 2022 at 12:30 pm (Pacific Time)!

Chainsaw Man is based on Tatsuki Fujimoto's popular and award-winning manga of the same name, which was published in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump. The movie is directed by Ry Nakayama.

The screenplay for Chainsaw Man was written by Hiroshi Seko. Kazutaka Sugiyama designed the characters, Kiyotaka Oshiyama designed the devil, Yusuke Takeda did the art direction, and Kensuke Ushio composed the music.

Animation was handled by the famous Japanese studio MAPPA, which is known for shows like Attack on Titan: Final Season, JUJUTSU KAISEN, Yuri!!! on Ice, and the soon-to-be-released Hell's Paradise. MAPPA also made the worldwide hit JUJUTSU KAISEN 0. It is one of the top five highest-grossing anime movies in the US, one of the top 10 highest-grossing anime movies in the world, and one of the top 20 highest-grossing movies in Japan.

The story takes place in a world where people's fears turn into Devils. Devils are usually evil and dangerous, and their power grows with how much fear they cause. But humans can make deals with them to use their power, and there are people called Devil Hunters whose job it is to find and hire them. Devils come from Hell and live in a cycle between Earth and Hell. When they die in Hell, they move to Earth, and when they die on Earth, they move to Hell. Primal Fears, which are very powerful Devils that have never been killed, live in Hell. The Hell Devils seems to be in charge of how people move between the two planes.

A Fiend is a Devil that has taken over the body of a dead person and taken on some of their memories and personality, this may happen in certain situations. People say that devils who naturally look like humans are kind to humans.

The story takes place in 1997 in an alternate timeline where the Soviet Union is still around and many important events, like the Holocaust, have been forgotten. There used to be nuclear weapons in this world, but they are no longer around because the Chainsaw Devil ate the Nuclear Weapons Devil. Also, there hasn't been a war since the World War because the War Devil has been weakened so much that the only reminders of war are in the media and pop culture.

Chainsaw Man tells the story of Denji, a poor young man who makes a deal with a devil and fuses his body with this dog -like devil named Pochita. This gives him the power to turn parts of his body into chainsaws. Denji will end up joining the Public Safety Devil Hunters, a government group that fights devils when they pose a threat to the world.

As of October 2022, more than 16 million copies of the manga had been sold. In 2021 it  won the 66th Shogakukan Manga Award in the shōnen category. In 2021 and 2022, it also won the Harvey Awards for Best Manga. Overall, critics liked Chainsaw Man. They liked the story and the characters, and they especially liked the violent scenes that made sense in the context of the story.
