If you’re an anime fan, you’ll certainly have heard about Chainsaw Man before. The hit manga by Tatsuki Fujimoto is full of beautiful imagery, stark statements about our world, and an endless assortment of what-the-heck-did-I-just-read moments. All of this is currently being adapted into an anime by MAPPA, but new fans might be daunted by the massive hype around it, which is why we’ve put together our Chainsaw Man watch order.

Whether you’re looking to do a rewatch before the film Chainsaw Man – The Movie: Reze Arc comes out, or you’re tackling the anime for the first time, here is the perfect Chainsaw Man watch order and where you can stream it.

Fortunately, Chainsaw Man is told in a fairly straightforward fashion. There are a handful of flashbacks mixed in there, but everything is largely told linearly. That means that the release order is the best way to watch the Chainsaw Man anime.

As strange and twisted as almost everything about Chainsaw Man can be, at least it is easy to find all the episodes. You can currently watch every episode of season one of Chainsaw Man on Crunchyroll.

A sequel series to Chainsaw Man has been announced, which will likely cover chapters 53-97 of the manga. Unfortunately, no release date has been confirmed for this series, but it will probably be sometime after the upcoming movie is released. At this point, we wouldn’t expect Chainsaw Man season two to come out until late 2025 at the earliest.

Chainsaw Man – The Movie: Reze Arc has been confirmed to be in production at MAPPA, though no release date has been announced for it. The film is expected to cover the Bomb Girl arc, which consists of chapters 40-52 of the manga. The reason they’re doing this arc as a film rather than as part of the anime series is likely to allow for some of the big twists in the second season plenty of time to sink in.
