The fall 2022 anime adaptation of the Chainsaw Man manga is getting its home video releases handled by MAPPA in Japan. The twelve-episode series is getting done as a four-volume release that begins on January 27th, 2023. The DVDs are priced at 5,800 yen each while the Blu-ray sets are priced at 6,800 yen each.

We’re catching up on some of the packaging we missed as we now have a look at the full packaging spread and how the cover and slipcover look for the third volume and our first look at the fourth and final volume. Check out the known details below.

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.

Mike McFarland is directing the English dub with a cast that includes Ryan Colt Levy as Denji, Suzie Yeung as Makima, Reagan Murdock as Aki, and Sarah Wiedenheft as Power.

The series began back in 2016 in Japan with Viz Media releasing it in English as well.

Plot Concept: Denji’s a poor young man who’ll do anything for money, even hunting down devils with his pet devil-dog Pochita. He’s a simple man with simple dreams, drowning under a mountain of debt. But his sad life gets turned upside down one day when he’s betrayed by someone he trusts. Now with the power of a devil inside him, Denji’s become a whole new man—Chainsaw Man!
