Chainsaw Man fans, start your hype engines!

Based on the manga by Tatsuki Fujimoto, Chainsaw Man is directed by Ryu Nakayama (JUJUTSU KAISEN Episode 19 Director) at studio MAPPA, with scripts by Hiroshi Seko (Mob Psycho 100, JUJUTSU KAISEN), character designs by Kazutaka Sugiyama (Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation) and music by Kensuke Ushio (A Silent Voice).
Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan, describing it as such:
Denji is a teenage boy living with a Chainsaw Devil named Pochita. Due to the debt his father left behind, he has been living a rock-bottom life while repaying his debt by harvesting devil corpses with Pochita.
One day, Denji is betrayed and killed. As his consciousness fades, he makes a contract with Pochita and gets revived as "Chainsaw Man" — a man with a devil's heart.
