If you’re as devoted a fan of Tatsuki Fujimoto as I am, you’re surely counting down the seconds until the premiere of the anime adaptation of Chainsaw Man. be one of the most anticipated anime of the year. Doubts that are fueled in large part by the studio’s habit of chewing up more than it can (usually at the expense of its staff).
But a new preview, with English subtitles, removes our doubts while giving us more information. The most important a premiere window: October 2022.
This means that Chainsaw Manu is coming with the Fall 2022 anime season and there are only a few months left before we can.
The other piece of information he gives us is the official presentation of the voice actors who will play the characters in the anime.
Topping the list is Tomori Kusunoki. Some of the seiyuu’s most iconic and popular roles include Yoko Aunt Noto in Bastard’s ONA that premiered this year, Futaba Igarashi in the romantic comedy Senpai ga Uzai Kouhai no Hanashi, and Neiru Aonuma in Wonder Egg Priority.
Ai Fairouz plays the demon Power. If the voice sounds familiar to you, it’s because it’s the same actress who plays Jolyne Kujo in ‘Stone Ocean’. In another role that may be more difficult for them to identify, he is also Mikey in Tokyo Revengers.
Shougo Sakata plays Aki Hayakawa. It is the first time the actor has been cast in a lead role in a series of this scale, with his other role being Ranmaru Ai in the Fairy Ranmaru: Anata no Kokoro Otasuke Shimasu anime.
Perhaps the studio’s biggest bet is on its lead actor: Kikunosuke Toya, who plays Denji. The most important role so far has been Osei Kiyoshima in Wind Boys, as well as other minor roles in series and graphic novels.
You can read all the chapters of Chainsaw Man, including the second part that began publication just under a month ago, on the official Manga Plus app.
