With the show’s release just a week away, MAPPA shared a new Chainsaw Man Episode 1 promo that gives us a new look at Pochita. Along with this, the official synopsis for the episode has also been released.

The new promo video was shared by the official Chainsaw Man Twitter account and also uploaded on the MAPPA YouTube channel.

While it’s only 15 seconds long, it features new footage that hasn’t been seen yet in previous trailers.

Among the various characters and devils in the series, Pochita stands out for being incredibly cute.

Based on fans' reactions to the new promo video, MAPPA succeeded in making Pochita adorable in the anime adaptation.

Chainsaw Man is one of the most anticipated anime of Fall 2022. It is based on the hit manga of the same name by Tatsuki Fujimoto which was initially serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump from December 2018 to December 2020.

The manga continued with Part 2 which began last July. Unlike the first part, the continuation is serialized in Jump+, though it is also available in Manga Plus and the Shonen Jump app outside Japan.

It’s fair to say that Chainsaw Man is one of Shueisha’s biggest modern hits.

Despite only being over 100 chapters long so far, the series already has over 16 million copies in circulation.

Meanwhile, the hype for the anime is also massive, with the recent promo video getting almost 100k likes on Twitter after just a couple of hours of being shared.

Alongside the new video, the show’s official website shared an update on the upcoming episode, including the official synopsis as well as screenshots that are taken from the video snippet.

Here is a machine-translated version of the Chainsaw Man Episode 1 synopsis:

Denji is a young boy living as a devil hunter.
In order to pay off the debt left by his parents, he and Pochita, a "Chainsaw Demon," live a life of poverty by fulfilling requests from the yakuza.
One day, Denji is summoned by the yakuza and is betrayed and killed.
In his fading consciousness, something speaks to Denji.

Based on this description along with reactions from the Japanese premiere, the show’s first episode will likely adapt the full first chapter of the manga.

You'll see more of Pochita when Chainsaw Man gets released on October 11, 2022.
