Chainsaw Man Anime Expo 2022 Panel Promises Major Update

Chainsaw Man is coming to Anime Expo 2022! The upcoming anime is getting its own panel at the highly anticipated convention. Unsurprisingly, it looks like there will be major updates during the event!

Crunchyroll recently unveiled its slate of panels and special events for this year’s Anime Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The streamer has confirmed that he will be hosting panels for several major anime franchises, including Chainsaw Manwhich will feature the producers of MAPPA.

While it has yet to be confirmed who will attend the panel, it was revealed that the event will take place on Monday, July 4, 2022 at the Main Events Hall at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Additionally, the panel will be moderated by Crunchyroll’s Kyle Cardine.


This is great news for fans who have been waiting for updates on Chainsaw Man for some time now. But does this mean that we will finally get a new trailer and a new release date for the anime? Although people are hoping for the news to drop during Anime Expo 2022, we may have to wait a bit longer for a trailer and a release date. Still, fans remain hopeful that the update is coming very soon.

It was previously reported that Chainsaw Man will air in the fall of 2022 and will consist of two courses (meaning the season will be split into two parts). However, this has not yet been confirmed by MAPPA.

Chainsaw Man follows Denji, a young man living in poverty who pays off his deceased father’s debt to the yakuza by working as a devil hunter. He is aided by Pochita, his canine companion, and Chainsaw Devil. But when Denji is betrayed by the Yakuza and left for dead, he merges with Pochita and becomes a human-devil hybrid. After Denji slaughters the yakuza, he is approached by Makima who convinces him to join a team of government Devil Hunters known as the Public Security Division.

For the moment, Chainsaw Man has not yet received an official release date. However, the anime is already set to air in 2022. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
