On Thursday, the official Twitter account for the television anime adaptation of Tatsuki Fujimoto’s Chainsaw Man manga disclosed that the anime would debut on TV Tokyo and five additional connected stations on October 11, in addition to on Amazon Prime Video. It will launch on other streaming services in Japan on October 12 (the announcement is vague as to whether the Amazon Prime Video debut will be global or just in Japan).
The Twitter account also revealed that on September 19 at TOHO Cinemas Roppongi Hills, MAPPA would webcast live the conversation event for the anime’s international debut. The notice solely refers to the speaking event; it makes no mention of a webcast of the world premiere. Whether the webcast would have English subtitles is not mentioned in the announcement either.
Over 200 nations and territories will be able to watch the anime on crunchyroll. The business will offer anime streaming in Japanese with both English subtitles and an English dub. French, German, Brazilian Portuguese, and Spanish dubs will also be added for the animation.
The anime is being produced by MAPPA, and it is being directed by Ry Nakayama (Black Clover, Jujutsu Kaisen episode director) and written by Hiroshi Seko (Ajin, Attack on Titan The Final Season). Designing the characters is Kazutaka Sugiyama (Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation).
