The anime aired on TV Tokyo and related networks, with Amazon Prime Video streaming in Japan. Crunchyroll streamed the anime worldwide, with English subtitles and dub.

A stage play for Chainsaw Man is definitely worth some curiosity. One has to wonder how they will present certain elements like the Eternity Devil and how Chainsaw Man would look like.
