How Many Episodes Will Chainsaw Man Have?
It has been confirmed that Chainsaw Man will have 12 episodes for the first season, with an episode released each week.
However, Chainsaw Man fans still hold out hope that there will be more content to watch since it hasn't been confirmed yet whether the 12 episodes will be for the first part or for the whole first season.
It has been rumored before that Chainsaw Man will have two cours, and since it has been confirmed to have 12 episodes, it means there's a possibility for the second part of the cour to be released after a three-month break.
