Chainsaw Man's final trailer builds hype with gore and demons

MAPPA’s Chainsaw Man is one of the most anticipated anime of the end of the year and its launch trailer gives us all the reasons not to miss it.

Demons or humans, which side are you on? With that question starts the final trailer of Chainsaw Man, a trailer that is pure adrenaline and perfectly sums up the fervor for Tatsuki Fujimoto's manga. Blood, gore and colossal monsters. Unpretentious action and unforgettably designed characters. The series will premiere on October 11 on Crunchyroll, its first season will consist of 12 episodes and has been made by the animation studio MAPPA (the studio behind Shingeki no Kyojin). You can watch the trailer below:

As with the manga, now in its second part and with more than 100 episodes, the Chainsaw Man anime will premiere every coming Tuesday, so mark your calendars and don't eat if you have a sensitive stomach.

What is Chainsaw Man all about?

To give you some context, Chainsaw Man is currently the most-read manga on Manga Plus, where it competes with industry giants such as One Piece and Dragon Ball Super. The tragic story of Denji and his demonic dog, Pochita, has gripped millions of people around the world, largely thanks to its lack of pretension... and scruples. Unbridled action in vein with a crazy character design whose best example is the protagonist: a young man with chainsaws for arms and head.

Composed of 11 volumes so far, Fujimoto's work is a refreshing cocktail of gore and jokes. An adventure full of surprises and adrenaline that you will regret not having read when the anime is released, as it will be on everyone's lips and spoilers will rain down.Chainsaw Man is as big as a chainsaw.
