Chainsaw Man Episode 12’s dub will premiere on Tuesday, January 10, 2022. It’s bittersweet. While we’re excited to see what’s next, this marks the end of Season 1 for both dub and sub viewers. (As for what we know so far about Season 2, you can check out all the details in our story here.) Since this is the finale, you’ll definitely want to watch it as soon as you can. Below you’ll find everything you need to watch Chainsaw Man’s Episode 12 dub online.

How to Watch the Chainsaw Man Episode 12 English Dub Online
If you want to watch Chainsaw Man Episode 12’s English dub in the U.S. on Tuesday, January 11, then you’ll need Crunchyroll’s streaming platform. The episode will drop at 12:30 p.m. Pacific, or 1:30 p.m. Mountain/2:30 p.m. Central/3:30 p.m. Eastern. It will be added later to Amazon Prime, and likely sometime later than that to Hulu (after the season is all over.)
To watch Chainsaw Man Episode 12’s dub on Crunchyroll: Click here to go straight to Crunchyroll’s Chainsaw Man page. Change the dropdown menu to “Chainsaw Man S1 – English Dub.” This ensures you’re seeing the dubs and not the subs, since the main page takes you to the subs by default. The dropdown menu will also show options for watching dubs in other languages, just in case you’re interested. The new dub will be added to this page once it’s available.
To watch the dub for free, Crunchyroll has a short free trial for new users — but you can only use it if you have an email that’s never subscribed or used a free trial before. You can find the free trial options here. They include 14-day trials for Fan, Mega Fan, and Ultimate Fan accounts. All three include no ads.
How to Stream Chainsaw Man Episode 12’s English Dub on Amazon
The dub will also air on Amazon Prime in the U.S., but it won’t drop until sometime after it’s on Crunchyroll. It could be within 24 hours, but might be longer.
You can find Amazon Prime’s English dubs for Chainsaw Man here. For some reason, Episodes 2, 3, 6, 9, and 10 don’t include subtitles or audio languages on the listing, and we’re not sure why. But the top of the page lists this as having an audio language of English (for simuldubs) and English subtitles. What’s strange is that as of the time this article was written, Episode 11 had not yet been added to Amazon Prime. This is unusually late for Chainsaw Man, so we’re not exactly sure when Episode 12 will be added. Crunchyroll will definitely get you the new dub faster.
Chainsaw Man Episodes 1 through 12 are also available in non-dub form on Amazon Prime, but those are the Japanese versions. The main webpage there says subtitles aren’t available for those.
Episode 11 Recap
There are spoilers below for Episode 11. For a full review, see our article here.
Last week set the stage for the finale in some very definitive ways.
Aki made a deal to let the Future Devil see through his right eye in exchange for his powers, because apparently his death is going to be terribly horrifying. This lets him see a little bit into the future, but that’s all. I’m not sure if Aki made a good deal in all of this.
Kishibe has trained Denji and Power as much as he can. He told Makima that he thinks she’s lying about her motivations, but as long as her work brings about the betterment of humanity, he’ll be OK with the cost it takes to get there.
Later, Makima met with the Yakuza leader by herself because she’s just that powerful. When he balked at giving away not only the names of everyone who made contracts with the Gun Devil, she showed him that she had acquired an eye from the loved one of every person in that room. Obviously this was the work of a devil, who can somehow return those eyes if they do what she wants.
When someone in the Yakuza group threatened Makima, his nose started bleeding and he passed out (or died.) The same thing happened later when Aki faced off with some people on his way to fight Katana Man, implying that Makima’s powers are even more far-reaching than we thought.
Near the end of the episode, the anime introduced us to a few more members of Division 4: Shark Fiend, Violence Fiend (who needs to wear a mask that dispenses poison to keep him weak), the Spider Devil, and the Angel Devil. The Angel Devil’s actually friendly to humans, but a person loses much of their life force if they touch the Angel.
At the end of the episode, Aki found himself face-to-face with Sawatari. She somehow now has the Ghost Devil at her disposal, and the episode ends with Ghost squeezing the life out of Aki… Is this the end?
This next episode will wrap everything up, leaving us with a long hiatus as we wait for Season 2.
