Chainsaw Man Anime: Storyline
Denji, a young boy who must shoulder the responsibility of repaying the debt his deceased father left behind while having no extra money, is the focus of Chainsaw Man.
With the help of his devil-dog, Pochita, who passed away when a job went awry, Denji goes on to become a demon hunter in a world where evil arises from human anxieties.
In response to Pochita’s invitation to become Denji’s new heart, Denji transforms into the “Chainsaw Man,” a human-demon mix.
Chainsaw Man Anime Release Date
We now know that the Chainsaw Man anime will be released in 2022 and according to Wikipedia, the anime is scheduled to debut on TV Tokyo and other networks in October 2022.
However, since the first trailer debuted on June 27, 2021, we haven’t heard anything about it. Since that time, neither Crunchyroll nor the international licensor, MAPPA, have made any announcements.
Fans are becoming impatient because the anime has been postponed as we approach the halfway point of 2022. At the Chainsaw Man Panel at Anime Expo 2022, it was anticipated that the release date would be announced, but the event passed without any new information.
Those who attended the panel, however, reported that it was stated that further information would be revealed at Crunchyroll Expo 2022, which will be held from August 4 to 7. So that’s when we’ll probably eventually learn the anime’s official release date.
