In an official statement discussing the song, Yonezu said, “I wrote KICK BACK for the anime adaptation of Chainsaw Man. This is such an honor, as I love the original manga series. Finding the right sounds for this immensely powerful series was challenging, but I created this song by patiently building it up, one piece at a time. I hope you enjoy listening to it. Thank you very much.

Interestingly, the opening video of CSM anime features a dozen of references to several famous media pieces. Even if we get the same track and video with each episode, it has everything to stop you from skipping ahead.

Featured at the end of the Chainsaw Man pilot episode, this song is performed by Vaundy, a young Japanese music producer, composer, songwriter, and designer.

Talking about the track on the anime’s official website, Vaundy said (translated from Japanese to English), “In making the song, I re-read the original many times, biting and swallowing the taste of Chainsaw Man that I got from that, and I think I was able to make the music that I thought was appropriate for this work.

Chainsaw Man Insert Songs

The term “insert songs” refers to the tracks that are in the storyline of an anime. Most of the time, these songs act as background music, but they can also act as narrative music in some scenes in the anime series.

Chainsaw Man anime only features one insert song, which is Hawatari Niku Centi by Maximum the Hormone. It will also be used as the ending song in one episode.

Moreover, the track’s Japanese name translates to “two hundred million centimeter long blades”. Commenting on the track, the band said, “The pace of making new songs for the band is unusually slow for me, but if it’s for my favorite manga work, I’ll be happy to make songs as fast as a dog wags its tail in the heat. It’s always been my dream to have a song used in the Chainsaw Man anime.” (translated from Japanese to English)
