The highly anticipated moment in the anime universe has officially arrived. Chainsaw Man Reze Arc’ Movie was officially announced at Jump Festa 2024 on December 17 during the Chainsaw Man panel. The trailer has anime lovers from all over the world eagerly anticipating the next step in the Chainsaw Man saga and the ways in which it will progress the already existing storyline.
The trailer boasts a beautiful art style with several visual easter eggs surrounding flowers, blood, and gore accompanied by the harrowing and almost music of Kensuke Ushio. Proving once again, his impact on the Chainsaw Man universe. The simple yet haunting imagery accompanied by the soft piano sounds almost acts as a foreshadowing of something sinister to come. Something that will shake up the Chainsaw Man universe unlike anything before.
One could draw comparisons of the trailer’s art style with that of Devilman Crybaby with its minimalist shading and thin line work. The comparison goes beyond visuals as the highlight of two of its primary characters almost mirrors the chemistry between Akira and Ryo (and we all know what happened there…)
Alongside the trailer, we also got the announcement that the titular Reze would be voiced by Reina Ueda. The veteran voice actor has blended her voice into iconic roles such as Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina (2020), ID-0 (2017), and SSSS.Gridman (2018). Ueda will play a crucial role in the film voicing Reze and if the trailer is anything to go by we will be in for an emotional, thrilling, and striking movie experience.
Reze, who also goes by Lady Reze or the Bomb Girl is a Bomb Devil hybrid otherwise known as Bomu No Akuma. Although a Hybrid from the Soviet Union, she was sent to Japan on a mission to steal the Chainsaw Man’s heart. While having a somewhat fake crush on our Chainsaw Man Reze Arc fans can expect to see something blossom and explode (no pun intended) during this movie.
A lot of the scenes in the trailer feature both our bomb girl and Denji. We can expect to see the relationship unfold and the immense about to drama and carnage that can stem from it. The movie picks off where season one left off, as viewers are shown glimpses of a mysterious girl in black socks ascending a staircase. The movie reveals that this girl was in fact Reze, posing an impactful shift in Denji’s journey as a demon hunter in training.
While the release of the trailer has sparked major anticipation for anime fans, there is also a sense of dread surrounding the announcement as fans fear a significant delay between the trailer release date and the release date of the movie. Anime movie distribution deals are never really time-sensitive as can be seen with the release of the recent Jujutsu Kaisen movie. The anime world fears the same fate for the Chainsaw Man Reze Arc movie. As of now, there is no official release date but the hype behind the movie’s release is growing day by day with fans continuing the anticipate every possible scenario.
So what are the expectations for the movie? For starters, fans are expecting a wild ride in the relationship of Denji and Reze and to answer the question of; what does Reze actually want from Denji? Beyond that, fans are expecting the movie to be a bridge between part one of the anime series and its upcoming part.
conclusion of Chainsaw Man Reze Arc
With the events of Reze’s Arc now being canon in the universe, it’s time to see how this series is going to progress. Finally, fans are expecting the level of gore, craziness, and ‘what did I just watch’ energy to keep bumping up as the series progresses. Only, time will tell how this movie will shake the anime world, but for now, it has already caused the uproar it deserves.
