With animation being on par with some of the best shows we’ve ever seen and a new ending theme released at the end of every single episode, Chainsaw Man is easily attracting the attention of both casual and hardcore anime fans everywhere. Last year, this anime managed to get millions of views with the release of its trailer alone! The show is definitely living up to the hype so far and is a must-watch in my opinion. With that being said, here is a list of the 5 best places where you can watch Chainsaw Man Online.

Chainsaw Man Plot

In Chainsaw Man, we follow the story of a young man named Denji. After the death of his father, Denji’s life became a living nightmare. In order to pay off the huge debt of his father, he is forced to become a tool for the Yakuza. Eating close to nothing on a daily basis and being forced to fight devils along with his pet devil Pochita, Denji never got to experience a normal teenage life.

However, Denji’s life completely changes after he fuses with Pochita. Now, he only wants to do what he can to survive while pursuing his dream of having a normal life and a hot girlfriend.

1. Netflixchainsaw man netflix

Sadly, Chainsaw Man is only available for streaming in Japan on Netflix. However, you can easily bypass this problem with the help of Nord VPN!

How to Watch Chainsaw Man on Netflix via VPN

This method works on both desktop PCs and mobile phones or tablets.

  1. Purchase (or start a free trial) of a VPN. I can confirm that NordVPN works for this purpose.
  2. In the settings, choose Japan as your location.
  3. Fire up the VPN and wait for it to do its magic
  4. Once you’re connected, navigate to Netflix (browser or app)
  5. Search “Chainsaw Man” in the Netflix search bar, and you should see the show pop up.

Enjoy! Please note that if your Netflix library doesn’t update to reflect the country you selected in your VPN, you may have to clear the Netflix cache first and try again.

To do this on mobile, go to settings -> apps -> Netflix -> clear cache. To do this on PC, you have to clear the cache in your web browser.

I’ve had no trouble using this method and I still use NordVPN to watch anime from various Netflix country libraries daily.

Another problem to consider while opting for Netflix is that the show will only become available once all of the episodes have been released. This option is best for all you binge-watchers!
