The highly anticipated release of the Chainsaw Man anime series has arrived. Episode 1 of MAPPA’s newest series is called “Dog & Chainsaw,” and if you haven’t seen it yet, you’re in for a gory good treat. Here’s how to watch it (and the rest of season 1)!
About Chainsaw Man
Chainsaw Man is easily MAPPA’s most-anticipated anime series of the year, and it’s finally ready to view in all of its wild, bloody glory. It follows the story of a poor boy named Denji who befriends a character named Pochita—a Chainsaw Devil.
Chainsaw Man is adapted from one of the most popular manga series by the same name. The manga was written by Tatsuki Fujimoto. The manga has sold over 20 million copies in just a few years, so the adaptation into an anime was inevitable.
So, does the anime live up to the source material so far? Fans have given the show a resounding “thumbs up” after the premier of the first episode. The frenetic animation and music match the bizarre and comical tone of the manga.
When it comes to violence, MAPPA doesn’t hold back—you can expect buckets of blood and loads of chainsaw carnage from the very start.
We can’t wait to see what else MAPPA has in store for this anime series.

Where to Watch Chainsaw Man
Chainsaw Man is streaming exclusively on the popular anime streaming platform Crunchyroll. That means Crunchyroll is the only place where you can watch Chainsaw Man regardless of your location.
Luckily, you can access Crunchyroll on almost all of your devices. It’s available to download on your Smart TV, smartphone, gaming console, computer, Roku, Chromecast, Apple TV, and more.
How Many Episodes is Chainsaw Man Season 1?
Chainsaw Man season one will consist of 12 episodes, and (likely) a single story arc. While some fans of the manga were hoping for a more comprehensive 24-episode season, a shorter season may not be a bad thing. MAPPA clearly put a ton of work into the animation and storytelling, and fans may be willing to sacrifice quantity for quality. We’re likely to get a condensed, but more intense season with low-to-no filler.
Not only that, but the manga writer Tatsuki Fujimoto has only just begun the second part of the series. Only 8 chapters have been released. So, if MAPPA had adapted part 1 in its entirety, fans might have had to wait a long time to get another season of the anime.
The first season premiered recently with the first episode, titled “Dog & Chainsaw.” Now, viewers are treated to a new episode every week on Tuesday or Wednesday (depending on your time zone) for a run of 12 weeks.
