Hit horror manga Chainsaw Man will be taking to the stage next year!
The announcement was made on December 29, just one day after the final episode of the anime adaptation was released.
While the cast is still a mystery, we know that the play, titled Chainsaw Man the Stage, will be performed in Kyoto and Tokyo in September and October 2023.
Originally created by Tatsuki Fujimoto, Chainsaw Man follows a young man named Denji who becomes a devil hunter in order to pay off his dead father’s debts to the yakuza. After falling victim to a plot by the yakuza, he merges with his demon dog Pochita to become Chainsaw Man.
The manga was originally serialized from 2018 to 2020, with Part 2 also coming out in July 2022. Fujimoto’s other recent projects include one-shot manga titles Look Back, Goodbye, Eri and Futsu ni Kiitekure.
Produced by MAPPA, the highly anticipated anime adaptation aired from October to December 2022.
