Chainsaw Man is probably the only franchise whose manga became popular even before the anime went under production. So, it’s only natural for its adaptation to become this year’s most anticipated show.
Although the anime was announced last year with a possible release in December 2021, it suffered a setback and was postponed indefinitely. Now the show is finally back on track and has also given us an official date.
Chainsaw Man franchise’s official Twitter account has revealed that the anime will begin streaming on October 11, 2022.
The broadcast date and time of the TV anime “#Chainsaw Man” has been decided!
It will be broadcast on TV Tokyo and others from 24:00 on 10/11 (Tue.), and the fastest delivery will start on Prime Video from 25:00.
Please see the ONAIR page for details on broadcasting and distribution platforms.

Besides local Japanese cable channels, the anime will also debut on platforms like Crunchyroll and Amazon Prime Video. It’s unclear whether Prime Video will be streaming the episodes globally.
MAPPA will also host and stream a talk event on September 19 at TOHO Cinemas Roppongi Hills for the anime’s world premiere. The company has not specified whether it will do an advance screening of the episodes too, along with the talk event.
Moreover, Crunchyroll has already made it clear that it will be broadcasting the anime globally in multiple languages and countries. The platform has listed over 200 countries and territories worldwide, and more than five dubbed and subtitled languages.
The various promotional media for the anime has already made it clear that it won’t have any mercy on fans or the characters. Through the trailers, MAPPA showed us how lenient it has become with the gore and killing, so there’s no escaping the trauma this time.
Keep your tissue boxes and therapist’s contact ready and let’s enjoy this brilliant fall anime with a warm beverage.
