If you liked Chainsaw Man’s first dub, you’re going to love the Chainsaw Man Episode 2 dub. Two new characters are being introduced, and so we’ll get to enjoy two new voice actors this week. It’s going to be fun! Here are all the details on where you can watch it.
How to Watch Chainsaw Man Episode 2’s English Dub Online
According to Crunchyroll, Chainsaw Man’s second English dub drops on Tuesday, November 1 at 12:30 p.m. Pacific. In other time zones, this is 1:30 p.m. Mountain/2:30 p.m. Central/3:30 p.m. Eastern.
Although the first English dub was already shown at NYCC, this will be the first time anyone in the public has seen the second episode’s dub.
Right now, the only place you can stream the dub is on Crunchyroll. No, it’s not on Funimation (even though Attack on Titan dubs and subs are there.) Funimation doesn’t seem to be getting Chainsaw Man at all, just Crunchyroll.
To watch Chainsaw Man on Crunchyroll: Click here to go to Crunchyroll’s Chainsaw Man page. Scroll down and you should see S1 and the subtitled episodes. The dub will be added to this page once it’s available.
Crunchyroll has free trials for those who’ve never had a free trial before. You can find the free trial options here. They include 14-day free trials for Fan, Mega Fan, and Ultimate Fan accounts. All three include no ads.
Chainsaw Man’s dub won’t be on Hulu either, even though the subs are there. It’s likely it’ll be added to Hulu at some point in the future, maybe after all the dubs have aired on Crunchyroll. That’s how it works for Attack on Titan dubs on Hulu, and it might be the same for Chainsaw Man. Hulu’s press page listed October 11 as the date that the subs would begin to drop, but it doesn’t mention anything about the dubs, nor does the schedule for November.
As for Amazon Prime, it may eventually drop there too, but you’ll likely have to wait a long time. (Note: The following two links are affiliate links.) Right now, only Chainsaw Man Episodes 1 and 2 are available on Amazon Prime, and those are just the Japanese version without dubs. Amazon Prime does have the dubs for Attack on Titan, so it will likely add the Chainsaw Man dubs at some point in the future.
Episode 1 Recap
You can check out our full review of Episode 1 here, but a briefer recap is below.
Episode 1 set up a dark, dystopian vibe that will serve as the foundation for the rest of the series. It’s a deeply disturbing world, where young Denji has to resort to selling his own body parts just so he can pay off his dead father’s debt and try to survive. All he wants is a little bit of happiness: bread with jam and perhaps, one day, a girlfriend. He just wants the simpler things in life.
He’s about to die when he has a chance run-in with an adorable devil dog, Pochita. Pochita is also dying, so Denji gives the dog his blood so he can live. They quickly become fast friends, sharing some truly sweet moments together. Denji tells Pochita to take over his body if he ever dies, because his only regret would be not being able to continue feeding Pochita. But Pochita loves Denji too, and ends up giving Denji his heart so Denji can live.
The young man is reborn into a human with devil powers. He is able to slaughter an entire zombie horde that was out to kill him, but he’s left distraught and confused.
That’s where the red-headed Devil Hunter finds him. She explains that she’s with Public Safety and Denji can either join her group and be a Devil Hunter too, or die. When he learns that he’ll be provided good meals, he doesn’t hesitate. It’s a chance to escape the desperate life he’s been living and finally get a taste of the good, simple life.
It was a powerful start to what is guaranteed to be a powerful season.
