Chainsaw Man is an anime television series based on the manga series of the same name written and illustrated by Tatsuki Fujimoto. The series, produced by MAPPA, was announced on December 14, 2020. The series is directed by Ryū Nakayama (director) and Masato Nakazono (chief episode director), with scripts by Hiroshi Seko, character designs by Kazutaka Sugiyama, and Devil designs by Kiyotaka Oshiyama. Tatsuya Yoshihara is serving as action director and Yūsuke Takeda is directing the art. Naomi Nakano is the color key artist and Yohei Miyahara is designing the screens. The music is composed by Kensuke Ushio. The series was broadcast on TV Tokyo and other networks from October 12 to December 28, 2022. The opening theme song is “Kick Back” by Kenshi Yonezu, while each episode features a different ending theme song.
Crunchyroll has licensed the series outside of Asia, and began streaming an English dub on October 25, 2022. Medialink licensed the series in Asia-Pacific.
The series adapts the first 38 chapters of the manga.
Despite the series’ violence and dark humor, Tatsuki Fujimoto always wanted to serialize in Weekly Shōnen Jump, but he had the feeling that his work would be “buried” if he had made a “Jump-like manga”, so he tried to retain much of his individuality as a creator while making only the structure and characters Jump-like. Fujimoto also said that, despite its success in the magazine, he wanted to write the second part of the series on Shōnen Jump+, because he wanted to do a completely different series from the first part. According to him, there is not much of a difference in working between Weekly Shōnen Jump and Shōnen Jump+, explaining that there were a few depictions that got stopped during the rough draft stage, but he was allowed to do anything he wanted regarding the logic of the story.
Fujimoto said that he took inspiration from various works. During the serialization of Chainsaw Man, Fujimoto said that he was too busy, but he watched as many new things as he could and borrowed various elements from what he saw. On Twitter, he stated that he was a fan of the 2016 film trilogy Kizumonogatari, and that the trilogy’s final battle, shown in Part 3: Reiketsu, inspired the final battle of the first part of Chainsaw Man. He also described the series as a “wicked FLCL” and a “pop Abara.” Fujimoto had various elements from the series planned from the beginning, while other things were added as it progressed. He did not have specific plans to bring payoff to the meaningful-sounding words and things that felt “off”, adding that he left various things vague to make the series’ second part easier to do.
Regarding the anime adaptation of the series, Fujimoto stated that he talked to the people handling it and he was comfortable leaving things to them. When the anime series was officially announced, Fujimoto commented: “Chainsaw Man is like a copycat of Dorohedoro and Jujutsu Kaisen, and the studio of Dorohedoro and Jujutsu Kaisen will produce its anime!? I have nothing to say! Please do it!” According to the manga’s editor, Shihei Lin, Fujimoto is heavily involved in the production of the anime series, stating: “Fujimoto-san has seen all the Chainsaw Man‘s pitch documents, story structure, scripts, and even the storyboards. He has continued to be in close contact with MAPPA’s anime team.” MAPPA producer, Makoto Kimura, also commented that Fujimoto involvement extended to the casting, planning, and music, because the staff wanted the anime to capture as much of the manga’s original vision as possible, including the violence and gore. MAPPA approached Shueisha with the pitch for the project.
