The first episode of Chainsaw Man is now out on Crunchyroll, and as expected, Tatsuki Fujimoto’s series premiere instantly started trending on social media platforms.
The opening song for Chainsaw Man was made available to the public in advance of the show’s international debut. It featured several iconic pop culture references that involved some of our favourite characters from the series.
Shingo Yamashita is responsible for preparing and producing the opening theme song. Shingo Yamashita is also responsible for developing and producing other opening songs, including those for Jujutsu Kaisen, the second opening for Ranking of Kings, and the thirteenth opening for Naruto: Shippuden. It would appear that his style is gradually becoming increasingly iconic within the industry, to the point where fans can already recognize those sequences in which he was involved.
