Official Chainsaw Man synopsis
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.
It’s fantastic that the English dub of Chainsaw Man is debuting so soon after the Japanese version has premiered. This will please many fans who are eager to watch the new show, which promises to deliver fantastic action with demonic lore. This may also suggest that the show will have a simultaneous release in the future, which would be fantastic for fans who hate waiting for their preferred version of the shows they love. The English Dub of the new anime series will premiere next week, with English Dub fans not far behind others since only two episodes have been released so far for the Japanese dub.
Chainsaw Man English Dub will be released on Crunchyroll on Tuesday, October 25 at 12:30 PM PT (8:30 PM UK Time).
