The Best Anime Coming To Crunchyroll In Fall 2022

Was there any other choice? “Chainsaw Man” is the hottest anime premiere in years. The anticipation for this show rivals that of new “Attack on Titan” episodes, and it hasn’t even released a single episode.

“Chainsaw Man” tells the story of Denji, a young man who gains a superpower when he fuses with a demon, and then becomes part of an elite force that battles demons. That may sound familiar, sure, but don’t think for a second this will be something like “Naruto.” That’s because “Chainsaw Man” is darkly comedic and super bleak. It is as grim as “Attack on Titan,” but can be as funny as “Jujutsu Kaisen.” The characters are well-written, the story is full of unexpected turns, and the action is spectacular.

Then there’s the anime. Studio MAPPA is in charge of the adaptation, with “SSSS. Gridman” and “Jujutsu Kaisen” animators Makoto Nakazono and Ryū Nakayama directing the show, from a script by “Attack on Titan” screenwriter Hiroshi Seko, and a soundtrack by Kensuke Ushio, who gave us the excellent “Devilman Crybaby.” Get ready, because Chainsaw Man is coming.
