MAPPA announced the special features that will come with the Chainsaw Man Blu-Ray and DVD releases. If you purchase all of them, it will be in a box featuring the main trio (and Pochita). You will also receive acrylic stands of the main characters. In total, there will be four Blu-Rays. [Thanks, Famitsu!]

The Chainsaw Man Blu-Rays and DVDs will start coming out in 2023. However, they are already available for pre-order. The release schedule is as follows:

  • Volume 1 (Episodes 1 to 3): January 27, 2023
  • Volume 2 (Episodes 4 to 6): February 24, 2023
  • Volume 3 (Episodes 7 to 9): March 31, 2023
  • Volume 4 (Episodes 10 to 12): April 28, 2023

It is only if you purchase all four at once, that gets someone the box and the stands. The box features homages and shout-outs to iconic retro films. Pochita looks like the dinosaur in Jurassic Park, while Denji re-enacts Jack Nicholson’s famous “Here’s Johnny” scene from The Shining. Power and Aki pose in posters that reference Kill Bill and Clockwork Orange, respectively.
