Chainsaw Man Trailers Tease Violent Anime Action Ahead of October Premiere

Animation studio MAPPA has released the new Chainsaw Man main trailer before the anime debuts October 11, English dub trailer revealed too.

Animation studio MAPPA has released the Chainsaw Man main trailer before the series tears into the anime world come October 11. Aside from providing more footage of a world plagued by devils and devil hunters, the trailer is a great showcase of how MAPPA has managed to bring the massively popular manga to the realm of animation. The studio, which recently released Jujutsu Kaisen 0 and is currently in the midst of wrapping up Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 3, is known for its ability to bring brutality, and it looks like Chainsaw Man will be no different.

As if there were any doubt that a show called “Chainsaw Man” could be anything less than hyper-violent, the trailer all but confirms unstoppable action on the horizon. Take a look at the visceral subbed Chainsaw Man main trailer below.

Today’s Chainsaw Man trailer offered a new look at MAPPA’s anime adaptation, but the show just got a dubbed version of an already released trailer, too. Crunchyroll shared the trailer alongside more information about the English cast, confirming that Ryan Colt Levy (My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission) plays Denji, Suzie Yeung (86 Eighty-Six) plays Makima, Sarah Wiedenheft (Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid) plays Power, and Reagan Murdock (Don’t Hurt Me, My Healer!) plays Aki. In addition to the English dub, Crunchyroll will support Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, French, and German dubs. A release date for Chainsaw Man dubbed has not been revealed yet.

For more on Chainsaw Man, you can read a short synopsis below. Then be sure to watch that dubbed trailer before tuning into the show’s premiere on October 11.

Denji is a teenage boy living with a Chainsaw Devil named Pochita. Due to the debt his father left behind, he has been living a rock-bottom life while repaying his debt by harvesting devil corpses with Pochita. One day, Denji is betrayed and killed. As his consciousness fades, he makes a contract with Pochita and gets revived as “Chainsaw Man” — a man with a devil’s heart.
