Chainsaw Man Episode 8 premieres on Tuesday, November 29, 2022, in the late morning or early afternoon, depending on which time zone you’re in. Episode 7 had a lot of character development, mixed with some pretty uncomfortable moments (to say the least.) You’ll likely want to stream the new episode as soon as it’s available. Below are all the details about how to stream Chainsaw Man Episode 8’s English sub online, plus links for both U.S. and international viewers.

Watch Chainsaw Man Episode 8 Online in the U.S.
Chainsaw Man’s Episode 8 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 29, 2022. The episode drops in Japan on TV about two hours earlier, so you’ll want to steer clear of social media during that window to avoid spoilers. (But really, it’s best to stay away from YouTube altogether, since spoilers are often dropped in the thumbnails or in the comments.)
In the U.S., there are two legal options for streaming new episodes of Chainsaw Man subs right as they’re available: Hulu and Crunchyroll. The episodes aren’t available on Netflix or Funimation, though they do get added to Amazon a little later.
How to Stream Chainsaw Man Episode 8 on Hulu (Links)
To watch Chainsaw Man Episode 8 (English sub) on Hulu, click here to go to Hulu’s main page. If you’re not subscribed to Hulu, you’ll instead be taken to a signup page. If you are subscribed, just type “Chainsaw Man” in the search bar, and you’ll go straight to the main page. Here you can find the Episode 8 sub.
If you want to watch Chainsaw Man Episode 8 on Hulu for free, Hulu offers a free trial here. This lasts for a month, and will get you through at least part of the remaining season.
How to Watch Chainsaw Man Episode 8 on Crunchyroll (Links)
To stream Chainsaw Man Episode 8 on Crunchyroll, click here to go to Crunchyroll’s Chainsaw Man page. Make sure you’ve picked “S1 – Chainsaw Man” on the dropdown menu, so you’re not seeing one of the several different dub categories instead. This will ensure you’re looking at the English subs. Then you’ll be able to see Episode 8 as soon as it’s available. (It may be delayed a few minutes if servers get overloaded.)
To watch Chainsaw Man Episode 8 on Crunchyroll for free, you’ll need a free trial, which will work as long as you haven’t subscribed or had a free trial before. The free trial options are here at this link. They include 14-day free trials for Fan, Mega Fan, and Ultimate Fan accounts, all without ads.
How to Watch Chainsaw Man Episode 8 on Amazon Prime
All the Chainsaw Man episodes are available at this link on Amazon Prime. These are labeled as the original Japanese version with Japanese audio. For some reason, they don’t list sub options, so it’s not clear if you can access subtitled episodes this way. Episode 8 will be added sometime after it airs live.
The simuldubs are also being added to Amazon at this link. But so far only Episode 5 is up, so this is being added a little later than you’re finding them on Crunchyroll. These episodes do show that subtitles are also available, but the audio language is English. So this is where you’ll want to go to get the dubs off Amazon.

Episode 7 Recap of Chainsaw Man
There are spoilers below for Episode 7.
Unfortunately, last week we were unable to write a Chainsaw Man review, due to illness and the holidays. But here’s a brief look back at what happened, in case you want a refresher.
The episode started out with everyone waiting while Denji had a long fight with the Eternity Devil. We learned new things about his powers. He can drink Devils’ blood and power up that way, basically allowing himself to last a long time. He ended up inflicting so much pain on the Eternity Devil that it gave up and let him kill it.
As Himeno’s mentor shared, the best Devil Hunters are the ones that are a little crazy, because this causes the Devils to fear them. While Aki doesn’t match this, Denji certainly does, Himeno concluded.
Then we had a get-together party with everyone from Division 4, which included a lot more people than we had met yet. We weren’t able to learn who Kobeni has a devil contract with, so that’s still quite the mystery. Himeno got drunk and ended up kissing Denji, and there was a super uncomfortable scene where she threw up in his mouth. 😳 Then she brought him home with her and suggested they sleep together. That was where the cliffhanger left off.
We got to meet some other Division 4 members too, which was interesting.
First, there’s Fushi, who has a fiend of his own who is too unreasonable to take out in public, unlike Power. He seems to be in charge of a rookie (or at least was, before the rookie was killed), kind of like Aki.
We learned that Denji is 16 (if he’s remembering right), so he’s the youngest of the group.
Hirokazu Arai is 22 and he has a contract with the Fox Devil too. His hobby is writing haiku.
Kobeni is just 20 and has a secret devil contract. Her hobby is “eating tasty things.” She also has eight sisters.
We don’t learn the names of the other people who were at the party, but hopefully we’ll learn more about them soon.
