Chainsaw Man is finally getting an anime, but there is still a lot of confusion about when it will come out.
MAPPA animation, which is behind recent hits like Jujutsu Kaisen and Attack on Titan Final Season, which are both getting new episodes this year, is making an adaptation of the incredibly violent and surprisingly good series.
Even though we don’t know the exact date the show will start, we have a pretty good idea and a few clues from other shows that might help us figure out when it will start.
Sometime in 2022, Chainsaw Man will be here.
Chainsaw Man’s adaptation was first announced in December of last year. It has been in the works for a long time, which could be because MAPPA is so busy. Takt Op. Destiny, a new series made by MAPPA and Madhouse together, came out on October 5. The prequel movie, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, opened in Japan at the end of December. Attack on Titan Final Season Part 2 is also set to come out sometime in early 2022.
Thanks to Chainsaw Man’s latest teaser, we now know that the anime will come out sometime in 2022, but we still don’t know when or in what season.
There’s a Chainsaw Man trailer that’s both beautiful and gross
The first full trailer for the anime came out in June 2021. Most of the trailer shows small snippets of the best parts of the manga, but when Denji’s devil form finally comes out, it shows the famous Chainsaw Man look.
WILL “CHAINSAW MAN” be available to watch on Netflix or Crunchyroll?
Chainsaw Man will be on Crunchyroll to watch online. The streaming service said on May 16 that it will show episodes of the upcoming anime at the same time as they air in Japan. It has done this for many other MAPPA shows, like Jujutsu Kaisen and Attack on Titan Final Season Part 2. Crunchyroll did not say when Chainsaw Man season 1 would come out, so we’ll have to wait for that information.
Crunchyroll even made a new trailer to let people know that Chainsaw Man would be available to stream on their site.
