Chainsaw Man is back this week with a new anime episode. Studio MAPPA adaptation of Tatsuki Fujimoto's popular horror comedy manga series has become one of the most-talked-about anime titles this year, and now, details about the next episode have been revealed.
Episode 5 of Chainsaw Man is titled Gun Devil, and a few stills and promo have been released ahead of the episode's release. You can check out the new promo below:
For those unfamiliar, the Gun Devil is a powerful devil who embodies the fear of guns, and he is the secondary antagonist of the Public Safety Saga.
Here are some stills from Episode 5, and as you can see the image of Denji and Makima is already sparking buzz on social media. With millions of deaths underhand, the villain is one of the most feared devils in the Chainsaw Man universe. Hunters like Makima have been hunting the Gun Devil for ages, and now, Denji is joining the battle. Of course, Pochita has his back.
If you're caught up on the manga series, you'd know that anime-only fans are about to see some major surprises in the upcoming episodes of Chainsaw Man.
Here's the official synopsis for Chainsaw Man:
"Denji's a poor young man who'll do anything for money, even hunting down devils with his pet devil-dog Pochita. He's a simple man with simple dreams, drowning under a mountain of debt. But his sad life gets turned upside down one day when he's betrayed by someone he trusts. Now with the power of a devil inside him, Denji's become a whole new man-Chainsaw Man!"
Chainsaw Man Episode 5 was just released at 12 pm EST today. You can stream the anime on Hulu or Crunchyroll.
