The TV anime ” Chainsaw Man” will start airing in October 2022. The latest PV has been released and the main casts, Kikunosuke Toya, Tomori Kusunoki, Shogo Sakata, and Ai Fayrouz, have been announced. In addition, the world premiere will be held on September 19.
The second part of “Chainsaw Man” is currently being serialized in “Shonen Jump +” and is a dark hero action film based on the manga by Tatsuki Fujimoto, which has sold more than 15 million copies.
Denji, a boy who lives as a devil hunter with Pochita, a “chainsaw demon,” is betrayed and killed while living in poverty to repay a debt left by his parents. In his fading consciousness, Denji makes a contract with Pochita and is reborn as “Chainsaw Man” with the heart of a demon.
This new information was revealed during the “TV anime “Censorman” information release live special program” broadcast live on August 5. In the latest PV, Denji, who lives a poor life as a devil hunter with the chainsaw demon Pochita, is transformed into “Chainsaw Man” and battles against demons. Makima, who forces Denji to make the ultimate choice between the two, Aki Hayakawa, who later becomes Denji’s colleague, and Power, a demon who “hates both humans and demons,” can also be seen in the film.
In addition, the world premiere will be held on September 19 at TOHO Cinemas Roppongi Hills in Tokyo. Totani, Kusunoki, Sakata, and Fayrouz are scheduled to appear on stage after the screening of the first episode.

Kikunosuke Toya (Actor: Denji)
My name is Kikunosuke Toya, and I play the role of Denji. I’m shaking with excitement as I finally start working on the long-awaited “Chainsaw Man”. I am grateful to be able to be a part of this production as a member of the cast, and I will stand in front of the microphone with all my heart and soul. I will bring you the best of this one-of-a-kind worldview, so please wait patiently for the start of the anime broadcast. I’ll do my best, too!
Tomori Kusunoki (Makima)
I was so happy to be cast in the anime that I prayed every day to the picture of Makima hanging in my house until I was accepted for the audition. I am truly, truly honored.
I will play the role with all my love so that everyone can feel the same Makima that I have become so crazy about. I look forward to working with you!
Shogo Sakata (Aki Hayakawa)
I am Shogo Sakata and I will be playing the role of Aki Hayakawa.
I have been reading “Chainsaw Man” since before I auditioned for the role.
I love the realistic depiction of a world where demons exist, and the moments when I feel the vividness of the people living in it.
I think it is the happiest thing in the world to be able to perform in a work that I like.
However, it is in such moments that I will do my utmost to keep my feet on the ground and tread hard, so that I can deliver the best “Aki Hayakawa” to the fans of “Chainsaw Man”. Thank you very much for your support.
Ai Fayreuse (Power)
I have been fascinated by and loved Power ever since I read the original story, so I am very, very happy to be able to play the role!
I’m really happy to be able to play the role! “Censorman” is a very avant-garde work that shows us something we’ve never seen before, full of unfathomable charm and madness, so I’ll do my best to express that worldview with all my 888 power!
