Chainsaw Man is one of the most popular manga series that has yet to be translated to the world of animation, though Studio MAPPA has already confirmed its involvement in the anime adaptation via a PV trailer that was released earlier this year. While we have yet to receive a release date as to when we can expect Denji and his fellow devil hunters to arrive on the small screen, rumors are beginning to swirl that we can expect the first batch of episodes to arrive next year, which definitely makes sense as Jump Festa is set to focus on the series later this month.
The bloody manga series was created by Tatsuki Fujimoto and arrived in the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump in 2018, with the first story of the series ending in 2020. With Chainsaw Man continuing to gain steam, it was no surprise to see that one of the biggest studios around was set to translate the wild events of the manga into an animated series, as MAPPA has already sharpened its skills with the likes of Attack On Titan, Yasuke, and Jujutsu Kaisen. On top of the rumored anime arrival window, the rumor also hints that the second part of the manga might be arriving next year as well.
Twitter Outlet WSJ_Manga shared the rumor that Chainsaw Man is set to have a very big year in 2022, hinting that both the anime will arrive as well as the second part of the manga series that introduced us to Denji and his world while ending in such a way that there were plenty of questions yet unanswered.
Chainsaw Man is set to have a panel at this year’s Jump Festa, the annual Shonen franchise that usually reveals major news for series running in Weekly Shonen Jump such as Dragon Ball, My Hero Academia, and One Piece to name a few. While nothing has been confirmed as to what the grotesque series will reveal at the upcoming event, it would definitely seem like the best place to announce the arrival of both the anime series and the second part of the manga.
Do you think we’ll see the arrival of Chainsaw Man’s anime next year? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of Denji and company.
