Chainsaw Man is getting ready to debut its big anime adaptation later this Fall, and has given fans a close look at the first character designs coming to the series! Tatsuki Fujimoto's original manga series is now one of Shueisha's biggest franchises running today, and thus its anime has become the most anticipated new release of the year overall. Details for the production have been scarce for quite a while, but with the series now scheduled for a release in the Fall, the studio behind Chainsaw Man's anime has begun to reveal more details and fuller looks than ever.
Alongside the debut of the first fullest trailer for Chainsaw Man's anime, MAPPA also dished details on the four major characters fans will meet in the new series. With Denji, Power, Makima, and Aki Hayakawa all confirmed for the series and revealed in motion through the first trailers, now fans have gotten a much closer look at how their manga selves have been translated to the anime release. With Kazutaka Sugiyama (Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation) handling the designs, you can check out a close look at them below as spotted by @YourAnimeGuy on Twitter:
Chainsaw Man will be releasing this October, but a concrete release date has yet to be announced as of this writing. The new anime has previously confirmed that it will be streaming on Crunchyroll when it releases in other territories, so fans around the world will be ready for it as soon as it hits. Ryu Nakayama will be directing the new anime for MAPPA with Hiroshi Seko handling the screenplay, Kazutaka Sugiyama providing the character designs, Tatsuya Yoshihara as action director, Kiyotaka Oshiyama as devil designer, and Kensuke Ushio as composer. The first additions to the main cast have been announced as well with the likes of Kikunosuke Toya as Denji , Tomori Kusonoki as Makima, Shogo Sakata as Aki Hayakawa, and Fairouz Ai as Power.
