Chainsaw Man Episode 7 will drop on Tuesday, November 22, 2022, with the time varying slightly depending on what time zone you’re in. Episode 6 was a great mix of horror and humor, and left us with a major cliffhanger just before Denji was about to take on a major Devil in battle. Of course, you’re wanting to stream the new episode as soon as it’s available. Below, we’re providing details about how to stream Chainsaw Man Episode 7’s English sub, along with streaming links for both U.S. and international viewers.
Post Apocalyptic Media may earn affiliate commissions from the Hulu or Amazon links in this story.
Stream Chainsaw Man Episode 7 Online in the U.S.
Chainsaw Man Episode 7 (English sub) drops in the U.S. at 9 a.m. Pacific/10 a.m. Mountain/11 a.m. Central/12 P.M. Eastern on Tuesday, November 22, 2022. A representative from Crunchyroll confirmed with Post Apocalyptic Media that this time is going to remain in place despite the time change. (So that means the episode in Japan drops about two hours before the episode is available in the U.S.)
Thanksgiving also isn’t affecting the release this week. The schedule is still on track, just like normal.
In the U.S., there are only two legal options for streaming new episodes of Chainsaw Man subs right as they’re available: Hulu and Crunchyroll. You can’t find it on Funimation or Netflix in the U.S.
Below are links with details on how you can catch Episode 7 for free. The episodes drop on Hulu and Crunchyroll at the same time, but are delayed on Amazon.

What About Amazon Prime?
On Amazon Prime, all the episodes are available at this link. These are advertised as the original Japanese version (with Japanese audio), so it’s not clear if they might include English subs. Episode 7 will eventually be added here too, but at some point later than it’s added to Crunchyroll and Hulu.
One person on Amazon wrote, “We are watching this on Hulu after we spent $25 to buy all the episodes on Amazon but they have not released anything but the first episode yet. Disappointed to say the list that we spent so much and catch watch it here.”
The simuldubs are also being added to Amazon (aka the English dubs.) But so far only Episode 4 is up, so this is being added a little later than you’re finding them on Crunchyroll. Some of these simuldub episodes also note the availability of subtitles, which aren’t noted on the original Japanese versions on Amazon.

Episode 6 Recap of Chainsaw Man
You can read our full review of Episode 6 here, which is geared toward anime-only viewers, but a briefer recap is below.
There are spoilers below for Episode 6.
The beginning of the episode was an interesting character study into how each person in the Division 4 group reacts to extreme stress and fear. Kobeni and Arai reacted the worst, allowing the Eternity Devil to actually grow stronger because of their fear. But Kobeni was hands down the biggest troublemaker for the group. Are they keeping her because her family will do something far worse to her if she’s kicked out of the division? Or does she have a secret power we haven’t seen yet?
Himeno has so much trust in her partner that she’s able to just relax and smoke her last cigarette, keeping an eye on the team while Aki looks for clues. Power’s not worried at all, and Denji takes a nap. Only Arai and Kobeni really seem to buckle under the pressure.
The Eternity Devil doesn’t want to kill Denji itself, it wants one of the Devil Hunters to kill Denji so it can eat him. I’m going to guess that eating Denji would grant it some kind of extra power. Or perhaps there is a bounty out there among Devils for killing Denji.
Arai, Kobeni, and Power immediately fall into team “Kill Denji,” without any thought about strategy. Himeno and Aki rightly surmise that this is a bad move. Aki also says he doesn’t want Denji killed because he’s going to help him take out the Gun Devil. Instead, he offers to use his sword to help them escape. But Himeno forbids it, because the contract requires Aki to lose years of his life in exchange. Fascinating!
In the end, Kobeni tries to stab Denji but ends up stabbing Aki instead. As the episode ends, Power is trying to save Aki’s life, and Denji has decided to face the Eternity Devil in combat.
