Being one of the most anticipated premieres for the season of Autumn-2022 (October-December)the platform Crunchyroll has revealed the exact premiere date and time for the anime adaptation of the manga written and illustrated by Tatsuki Fujimoto, chainsaw man. According to the platform, the premiere is scheduled for October 11 at 09:00 (Pacific Time or UTC-7).
This is equivalent to 11:00 a.m. (Central Mexico Time)although this will change when Daylight Saving Time ends on October 30 in multiple countries. Will the Crunchyroll servers support the expected large number of people who will try to watch the episode at the same time as it happened with the Shingeki no Kyojin premieres? It is quite likely that it will happen again, given the fact that the platform does not care much about fixing this problem.
On the other hand, Fujimoto started publishing the manga chainsaw man in the publisher’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine Shueisha in December 2018, ending the first part in December 2020. The second part of the work moved to the digital service Shōnen Jump Pluswhere it has been published since July 2022.
Synopsis for Chainsaw Man
The story takes place in a world where Demons threaten the peace of humans, making them targets to be eliminated. Denji is a young and depressed man who has sold several of his organs and works as a lumberjack and demon hunter to pay off his late father’s debt. Denji owns a dog (who is also a demon) named Pochita, who has chainsaws and which he uses to do his work.
This is explained because humans can make contracts with demons. After returning home from a job, Denji is called in by a Yakuza to infiltrate a building and assassinate another demon. However, the plan was a trap to kill him as part of a Yakuza contract with the demon, gaining them more power. But Pochita comes to Denji’s aid and bonds with him, becoming a half-man, half-demon and acquiring Pochita’s chainsaws.
