The main promotional video has been released for the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Tatsuki Fujimoto's hit manga series Chainsaw Man.
The anime is produced by studio MAPPA and is scheduled to air on TV in October 2022. An advanced world premiere will take place on Sept. 19, 2022 at TOHO Cinemas Roppongi Hills in Tokyo.
Chainsaw Man follows the story of Denji (CV: Kikunosuke Toya), a poor young man who forms a contract with the dog-like devil Pochita. After Pochita fuses with Denji, Denji gains the ability to transform parts of his body into chainsaws. He eventually joins the Public Safety Devil Hunters, a government agency focused on fighting against devils whenever they pose a threat to the world.
