We learned back at the end of December 2020 that the Chainsaw Man manga was coming to an end, but that was mostly just to prepare it for the second part that was getting underway not long after on the Shonen Jump+ app. We’ve had a lot of information over the last few months and the show saw an October 11th, 2022 premiere.

With the English dub getting underway back on October 25th, 2022, Crunchyroll is continuing to roll out more dubs for the show. The latest additions are the first episodes of the show with Italian and Castilian dubs. New episodes will go live on Tuesdays going forward for the run on a weekly basis.

The series will also be dubbed in Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, and Russian, with dates and cast to be revealed soon.

The project has set Ryu Nakayama to direct it based on the scripts by Hiroshi Seko. Kazutaka Sugiyama is on board with the character designs for it and, as mentioned, MAPPA will handle the animation production.

The Japanese main cast includes Kikunosuke Toya as Denji, Tomori Kusunoki as Makima, Shogo Sakata as Aki Hayakawa, Fairouz Ai as Power, Shiori Izawa as Pochita, Mariya Ise as Himeno, Karin Takahashi as Kobeni Higashiyama, Taku Yashiro as Hirokazu Arai, and Kenjiro Tsuda as Kishibe. Additional cast includes Maaya Uchida as Angel Devil, Natsuki Hanae as Shark Fiend, Yuya Uchida as Violence Fiend, Saori Goto as Spider Devil, Yō Taichi as Akane Sawatari, and Daiki Hamano as Samurai Sword.

With Kenshi Yonezu handling the opening theme song with “KICK BACK,” the ending theme songs will change with each episode with:

  1. “HAWATARI NIOKU CENTI (2-hundred-million-centimeter-long blades)” By MAXIMUM THE HORMONE
  2. ”ALL KIND OF KISSES” by ano
  3. ”Fight Song” by Eve
  4. “Deep down” by Aimer

“With dark humor, dynamic characters and a sharp story, Chainsaw Man is one of the most anticipated new series this year, and we are wickedly excited to bring it to fans on the Crunchyroll service,” said Asa Suehira, Chief Content Officer at Crunchyroll.  “Anime fans will be up all night thinking about the spectacular visuals and high-octane action.”

The series began back in 2016 and has eleven volumes out so far in Japan with Viz Media releasing it in English as well.
