Chainsaw Man’s second episode premieres this Tuesday, October 18, 2022. The first episode was phenomenal, showing once and for all that all that hype was well-deserved. So when is the next episode airing? You’ll definitely want to tune in right when it’s available if you can, so you’re not spoiled about anything. To help, we’ve provided live countdown timers in the story below to exactly when the new episode drops in the U.S.

Chainsaw Man Live Countdown Timer for the Second Episode

In the U.S., Chainsaw Man Episode 2 premieres at 9 a.m. Pacific on Crunchyroll and Hulu on Tuesday, October 18. In other time zones, that’s 10 a.m. Mountain, 11 a.m. Central, and 12 p.m. Eastern.

The best countdown timer, from TickCounter, is embedded below.


The countdown timer above should be responsive to mobile devices and desktops. Just leave this page up and running so you don’t forget exactly when the episode drops! It is counting down to exactly when the episode with English subtitles will drop. 

Depending on where you live, you can watch the new episode on your lunch break or while you’re enjoying a late breakfast. Although, I personally recommend not eating while you’re watching. Everything we see in the subtitles and on the screen is important, so it’s best to give the show your full attention! 

Of course, you’ll want to watch it a second time immediately after you finish the episode. So that might be the perfect time for a snack!

This next live countdown below is from This one should be your backup in case anything goes wrong with the one in the section above. To be clear, I personally like the timer above better because it’s responsive, while the one below may not be. 

If the timer below doesn’t appear correctly on your mobile device, try holding your screen horizontally instead of vertically. 

Remember: these timers are counting down to when the English sub episode releases in the U.S. However, there’s always a chance the server might crash, like it did with Crunchyroll last week. If that happens, it could be 15 minutes to an hour before you can watch the episode. 

Chainsaw Man News

According to the official website for the anime, director Ruy Nakayama had the following comment when Episode 1 released (as translated by Google into English):

The director said:

“Finally, the first episode of “Chainsaw Man” will be broadcast on TV Tokyo and others from 24:00 today. I think that all the members involved, including the production staff, music artists, producers, and advertising staff, have worked hard to create Chainsaw Man! You will definitely enjoy it, so please wait for it to air in real time!”

As for adult themes, the show definitely doesn’t hold back —  this isn’t an anime for young kids. The horror and gore themes were prevalent, even in the first episode. Things get intense in the manga, we’re told, and it looks like the anime won’t be holding back either. 

If you’re an Attack on Titan fan, then this newest anime from MAPPA will surely “scratch that itch” while you’re waiting for AoT to return. In fact, this feels like one of the highest quality animes I’ve seen, and one of the few that holds up quite well next to AoT.
