When it comes to popular series being adapted into stage plays, it’s only a matter of time. Tatsuki Fujimoto’s Chainsaw Man wasted none of it, because shortly after the anime aired its finale, a stage play adaptation was revealed. Chainsaw Man the Stage is set to hold performances in Tokyo and Kyoto theaters from September to October 2023, with Fumiya Matsuzaki (given, Banana Fish stage plays) handling the script and direction.
Further details, including the performance venues and the cast, will be revealed at a later date.
The Chainsaw Man TV anime streamed on Crunchyroll as it aired in Japan. Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
