The 2022 calendar is one of the busiest in the Japanese animation industry and streaming platforms are full. This is particularly the case of the famous Crunchyroll streaming platform. In addition to having one of the largest anime catalogs since its merger with Funimation, Crunchyroll is once again attracting attention.
The streaming platform has just added to its catalog, the new anime chain saw man.
The Coming of the Chainsaw Man
The list of new anime debuting in 2022 is quite long. Among them, small nuggets slipped in such as Blue Lock, Spy x Family, Ao Ashi and of course the very popular Chainsaw Man. While Tatsuki Fujimoto’s hit manga doesn’t yet have an official launch date, Cruchyroll has a big announcement for us.
The streaming platform will be in charge of broadcasting the animated adaptation of Chainsaw Man. Crunchyroll officially announced it just today. And we can say that it is a result that could not be more natural in view of the new dimension of this dedicated anime streaming service.
In addition to the simulcast of the anime in all regions covered by Crunchyroll (except Asia), several things are also on the agenda. The platform will also dub the anime in English, French, Latin American Spanish, German, Brazilian, and Portuguese.
The latest news on the production of the anime
The Mappa studio has really been in the spotlight for the past few years. With hit series like Jujutsu Kaisen and Attack on Titan, the animation studio has really performed. And it is normal that other franchises make the choice to attach its services just like its predecessors.
This is particularly the case of the manga Chainsaw Man which will also be produced by the animation studio. The director appointed to bring it to life is the Japanese Ryu Nakayama. This director had previously distinguished himself by directing episodes of Jujutsu Kaisen. As for the anime script, the choice fell on Hiroshi Seko who worked on Mob Psycho 100.
For the time being, this is the only sufficiently precise information. As for the cast of voice actors who will lend their voices to Denji and the other characters, we will still have to wait. Even if nothing is done yet, we can quite imagine that the anime Chainsaw Man will make its debut in the fall.
The work of Tatsuki Fujimoto
Tatsuki Fujimoto is a mangaka who rose to prominence with works like Fire Punch. This manga was one of his greatest successes. If you adore Chainsaw Man, the Fire Punch manga should also meet your expectations. Apart from this work, we can add to the list, the one shot Look Back as well as the very recent Goodbye Eri.
As for Chainsaw Man, it was in 2018 that the adventure of Denji and his partner Pochita began with the very popular Weekly Shonen Jump. Since then, the manga has continued to break records and in 2021 passed the bar of 12 million copies sold. In 2020, the first part of the manga had just ended and the fans were already eager to discover the sequel.
After observing a hiatus, the second part is expected to debut this year. However, it should be noted that the next adventures of Denji, the chainsaw man will not be published this time in Weekly Shonen Jump. The manga will be exclusively published on the digital manga platform Shonen Jump+.
