Details on the anime's opening and closing themes were also released, with Kenshi Yonezu performing the opener and the credits featuring a different soundtrack in each episode, played by artists including Maximum the Hormone, Ano, People 1, and more.
As evidenced in this new and previous trailer, Chainsaw Man is as violent and gory as any anime about a chainsaw man could be.
Crunchyroll's chief content officer Asa Suehira said previously that it features "dark humour, dynamic characters and a sharp story," and that "anime fans will be up all night thinking about the spectacular visuals and high-octane action."
