The television adaptation of Tatsuki Fujimoto’s Chainsaw Man manga announced on Thursday that it will debut on TV Tokyo and five additional associated stations on October 11, in addition to on Amazon Prime Video. (The release does not say whether the Amazon Prime Video premiere would only be in Japan or be available globally.) On October 12, it will start to stream on different streaming platforms in Japan.
The TOHO Cinemas Roppongi Hills conversation event for the anime’s global premiere will be broadcast live by MAPPA on September 19, according to a separate tweet from the account. The announcement solely refers to the speaking event; it makes no mention of a webcast of the world premiere. Whether the stream would have English subtitles is not mentioned in the announcement either.
The anime will be available on Crunchyroll in more than 200 nations and territories. The company will offer anime streaming in both its original Japanese language and with English dubbing. Additionally, the anime will receive dubs in French, German, Brazilian Portuguese, and Spanish from Latin America.
Ryū Nakayama (Black Clover, Jujutsu Kaisen episode director) is directing the anime at MAPPA, and Hiroshi Seko (Ajin, Attack on Titan The Final Season) is writing the scripts. Kazutaka Sugiyama (Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation) is designing the characters.
