Chainsaw Man has been revving up as the anime prepares to take over the world when it kicks off the following month as part of the exceptionally anticipated Fall 2022 anime schedule, and the anime is steadily stacking up the cast with new voice additions for Pochita, Himeno and more! Chainsaw Man may be the most anticipated release of the year overall, however a couple of fortunate fans in Japan had the option to attend a super exclusive world debut occasion. Be that as it may, while others will have to wait, this occasion also came with some of the most concrete updates on the upcoming production we have gotten at this point.
One of the major updates finished up the voice cast for many of the characters we get to see in action with the latest trailer for the series. Joining the cast of Chainsaw Man are the likes of Shiori Izawa as Pochita, Mariya Ise as Himeno, Karin Takahashi as Kobeni Higashiyama, Taku Yashiro as Hirokazu Arai, and Kenjiro Tsuda as Kishibe. They’ll join the previously confirmed additions of Kikunosuke Toya as Denji , Tomori Kusonoki as Makima, Shogo Sakata as Aki Hayakawa, and Fairouz Ai as Power. Check out the official cast announcement underneath:
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.”
