Chainsaw Man Live Action: Everything You Need To Know, All Information

Generally, when a manga series becomes too popular, it is followed by a TV anime. While mostly it is to simply elevate the status of the manga and make it more well-known sometimes, it’s also for catering to the audience who want more such content.

The same seems to have happened with CSM too, as it was recently announced that we will be getting a Chainsaw man Live action that will be coming in the form of a stage play that is titled Chainsaw Man The Stage. Many popular Anime and manga get such Stage plays and it seems CSM is next.

Chainsaw Man Live Action: Cast, Release date, Story

We will tell you everything you need to know about the upcoming Chainsaw Man Stage Play.


The Story will cover till all the major characters have been introduced so it might go on till the Bat Demon arc or Time Demon arc. The story of Chainsawman goes like a young impoverished boy under debt named Denji, becomes partners with a demon dog with a chainsaw on its head.

He works as a devil hunter in order to pay back the debt that his father owed to the Yakuza. After he was betrayed by them under the control of Zombie Devil, stabbed and left to die, Pochita fused with him. he replaced Denji’s heart, in turn transforming him into the Chainsaw Man.

After getting revenge on the yakuza and the Zombie Devil, he was recruited by Makima of the Public Safety Division 4, where he was joined by fellow hunter, Aki Hayakawa and Fiend Power. Thus the Chainsaw man Live action will probably cover all these stories.

An adult film has also been made but it is not an official Chainsaw Man Live action and is simply a parody of the popular series made simply to capitalise on the fame of CSM. As such it has been produced by a popular AV production house however since it doesnt violate any IP rights, nothing can be done.
