Chainsaw Man will make its official debut on October 11th overseas, and Crunchyroll has confirmed that they will be streaming the series for international territories alongside its release in Japan. The series will be running for 12 episodes overall for its first request (with a new ending theme accompanying each episode), and Ryu Nakayama will be directing the new anime for studio MAPPA. Hiroshi Seko will deal with the screenplay, Kazutaka Sugiyama providing the character designs, Tatsuya Yoshihara as action director, Kiyotaka Oshiyama as fallen angel designer, and Kensuke Ushio as composer.
As for what to expect from the new series, Crunchyroll teases Chainsaw Man as such, “Denji is a teenage kid living with a Chainsaw Fiend named Pochita. Because of the obligation his father abandoned, he has been living an absolute bottom life while repaying his obligation by harvesting fiend corpses with Pochita. One day, Denji is betrayed and killed. As his consciousness fades, he makes a contract with Pochita and gets restored as ‘Chainsaw Man’- – a man with a villain’s heart.”
