To show their commitment, MAPPA kept the film from the original, with absolutely no scenes involved. They also spent a lot of money so each episode of the first season would have its own ED – making the Chainsaw Man anime a rare name with 12 EDs in a single season.

The Chainsaw Man’s opening song is “KICK BACK” by Masayoshi Yonezu. At first, the song didn’t really stand out. However, when the opening trailer for The Animated Chainsawman Episode 1 was announced, everything instantly turned upside down.

For fans or those who know the movies of 19xx-20xx, you will find that there are many, many “Easter eggs” incorporated into this opening ceremony. Maybe it’s because they want the Chainsaw Man to be different, or maybe it’s because they know that the author, Naruto Fujimoto, is a movie lover, and MAPPA includes a lot of scenes in thanks for the movies of that era. What are these scenes, let’s see Lag.
