Chainsaw Man – The Movie Reze Arc Anime Main Visual 1

At Jump Festa 2024 it was announced that the anime series adaptation of the manga Chainsaw Man in Tatsuki Fujimoto will continue in the form of an anime film dubbed Chainsaw Man – The Movie: Reze Arc which, as the name suggests, will adapt the “Reze-hen” (Reze Arc) arc of the manga.

On a special note to fans, Tatsuki Fujimoto broke the silence on the film Chainsaw Man.

The motive behind Denji and Reze, who are expendable and used by others, is based on the main characters in the animated film Jin-Roh. I think there are a lot of imperfections in their composition, so I recommend you check out Jin-Roh as well.

Fujimoto Are you talking about the anime film? Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade from the Production I.G.(trailer above). The anime is quite dark and takes place in an alternative reality where Nazi Germany won the Second World War. In this universe, Japan is occupied by Germany as it is a member of the Allies, and the nation begins to fall apart. Kazuki Fuse, a member of an elite anti-terrorist brigade, develops a complex romance with the sister of a young terrorist who detonated herself in front of him.
