Chainsaw Man is finally preparing to land on the small screen this fall. With Studio MAPPA handling the animating duties for the first season of the bloody anime, a collection of the best and brightest voice actors from the medium have assembled to bring the story of the Chainsaw Devil to life. Luckily, Comicbook.com has collected the initial thoughts of the actors that will portray the likes of Denji, Aki, Power, and Makima.
If you didn't catch the newest trailer for Chainsaw Man's anime adaptation, you can check out the new video below which features voice actors such as Kikunosuke Toya (Tokyo 24th Ward) as Denji, Tomori Kusunoki (Tiger & Bunny) as Makima, Shogo Sakata (Pokemon & My Hero Academia) as Aki Hayakawa, and Fairouz Ai (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean) as Power:

Shogo Sakata - Aki
"My name is Shogo Sakata and I will be playing the role of Aki Hayakawa. I have been reading "Chainsaw Man" since before I auditioned for the role. I love the realistic depiction of a world where devils exist and the moments when I feel the vividness of the people living in it... I think it is the happiest thing in the world to be able to perform in a work that I like. However, it is in such moments that I will do my utmost to deliver the best Aki Hayakawa to Chainsaw Man fans by keeping my feet firmly on the ground. Thank you very much for your support."prevnext
