news culture Chainsaw Man: after Demon Slayer and Jujutsu Kaisen, another manga phenomenon is coming in 2022

Of all the anime expected in 2022, Chainsaw Man is definitely on the podium. Part of the top 10 best-selling manga in Japan last year, it is about to hit Crunchyroll in the coming months and the official trailer has just dropped. Unsurprisingly for those who have read the manga, Tatsuki Fujimoto’s work should be an uppercut!

Chainsaw Man takes place in a world where demons are born out of people’s fear. Their power is proportional to the fear they arouse and the scourge continues to grow. Humans have learned to live with this permanent threat and have managed, for some of them, to establish contact and make a pact. Indeed, there are contracts allowing individuals to use the powers of demons and these writings have led to the creation of specialized hunters, the Devil Hunters. Violent and not to be put in all hands, Chainsaw Man relates the adventures of Denji, a being half-man, half-demon, who finds himself hunting down monsters to repay his debts and becomes, by force of circumstance, a fearsome hunter. Friend of Pochita, a chainsaw-demon dog, he obtains his survival by merging with his sidekick and becomes, in turn, a chainsaw-man. Recruited by the government, he will then follow a goal: to defeat the terrible Demon-gun.


Expected for this year, the Chainsaw Man anime is currently in production at the MAPPA studio premises. Despite a very busy schedule and intense activity (Attack on Titans, Dance Dance Dancer, ONA Gambling School…), MAPPA intends to offer an adaptation worthy of the name. This first official trailer promises the best and the confirmation of the arrival of Chainsaw Man on Crunchyroll is excellent news for all manga fans and the curious who would like to discover this extraordinary work. Chainsaw Man is expected for this year and we will not fail to keep you informed of the announcement of the official launch date. For the time being, if we stick to the diffusion rate of the MAPPA studio, we would be between October and November.
