Aside from offering updates on the production behind Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2 and Jujutsu Kaisen 0 The Movie, lauded Japanese animation studio MAPPA recently delivered the trailer for the anime adaptation of Chainsaw Man. Premiering the first look at its 10-year anniversary event, MAPPA showcased the impressive visuals it has been preparing for the highly-anticipated expression of the beloved Shueisha serialization.

Chainsaw Man is centered around Denji, a young man who inherits his father’s debts from the Yakuza. Thanks to his Devil dog, Pochita, Denji is able to survive through odd jobs and killing Devils for the Yakuza. But when the Yakuza betrays him and he’s killed by the Zombie Devil, Pochita saves his master by becoming his heart.

Reborn, Denji can now become the Chainsaw Devil by pulling the cord on his chest. The unique hero is approached by a team of governmental devil hunters to become a Public Safety Devil Hunter.

Watch the trailer for the upcoming Chainsaw Man anime above.
