Chainsaw Man is now carving through the Fall with its premiere anime season, and one awesome cosplay is showing off why fans love Aki Hayakawa! The anime adaptation for Tatsuki Fujimoto’s massively popular manga series has been met with an equally as impressive fervor as the first few episodes of the series thus far have been spent introducing fans to the dark world surrounding its tragic main hero, Denji. Helping this along is the one who will be keeping an eye on him moving forward, Aki, as their team starts taking on the terrifying devils that continue to attack people.
Aki is meant to be the stoic leader to Denji and Power’s wild personalities, but it’s been made clear through his appearances so far that there’s something much deeper underneath that has yet to be revealed so far. That’s also true of his actual abilities in the heat of battle too, and artist @bon_cos_119 on Instagram is hyping up what Aki will look like when he gets into the action with some pitch perfect cosplay for the fan favorite in the making! Check it out:
How to Watch Chainsaw Man
If you wanted to see Chainsaw Man’s anime to see Aki, Denji, Power and all of the other fan favorites in action, you can now find the anime’s first couple of episodes (and the English dub premiere of the series) now streaming with Crunchyroll. There will be 12 episodes in total for this first season (each featuring a different ending theme sequence to really hammer home the project), so now it’s the best time to go back and see it before the series wraps up its big debut season.

As for what to expect from the anime, Crunchyroll teases Chainsaw Man as such, “Denji is a teenage boy living with a Chainsaw Devil named Pochita. Due to the debt his father left behind, he has been living a rock-bottom life while repaying his debt by harvesting devil corpses with Pochita. One day, Denji is betrayed and killed. As his consciousness fades, he makes a contract with Pochita and gets revived as ‘Chainsaw Man’–a man with a devil’s heart.”
