Chainsaw Man Fans Disappointed Over Lack of Release Date Or Trailer At Anime Expo

Chainsaw Man will stream on Crunchyroll in a few months.

July 4, 2022

Chainsaw Man is one of the most awaited anime series of this year, along with the likes of Mob Psycho 100 and Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War. MAPPA released the first PV for the anime series back in 2021, and it instantly grabbed the attention of millions of anime fans. Let’s just say that each frame of the first teaser felt like a blessing from the anime Gods.

Initially, MAPPA announced that Chainsaw Man anime would release in Fall 2022; however, fans are still looking forward to an exact release date. The anime will stream on Crunchyroll in dubbed and subbed formats in over 200 countries. But apart from that, we don’t know much about the much-awaited anime series.


Recently, Chainsaw Man hosted a panel at Anime Expo 2022, so it was obvious that the community was expecting a new trailer or a release date at the event. Well, MAPPA’s staff used the event to talk about the anime’s production; however, there wasn’t any PV trailer or a release date for the Tv show. The Fall 2022 release window means that anime should arrive sometime around October, so the lack of an exact release date or trailer is obviously frustrating for the community.

The creators did reveal some intriguing information about anime, starting with the fact that anime won’t censor anything. MAPPA will faithfully adapt everything from the original work, so the violence and gore won’t be trimmed down in the anime series. Apart from that, the creators confirmed that Chainsaw Man anime would feature some exclusive fight scenes, which does sound interesting. But of course, this information wasn’t enough to satisfy most fans, so it’s no surprise that several people went online to express their disappointment.

Chainsaw Man is based on Tatsuki Fujimoto’s manga series, which is critically acclaimed for its characters, fast-paced story, and of course, jaw-dropping art. So, it’s no wonder that everyone is looking forward to seeing its much-awaited anime adaptation.

MAPPA will reportedly cover the entirety of Part 1 in the first season of Chainsaw Man, and the show will run for around 24 episodes. However, Season 1 won’t be the end of Denji’s journey as Tatsuki Fujimoto is coming back with Part 2 of the Chainsaw Man manga series on July 13th, 2022. So, it’s safe to assume that MAPPA will be back with another season as soon as they have enough source material.

Besides Chainsaw Man, Fujimoto is working on several other incredible stories. Earlier this year, the author released “Goodbye, Eri,” the new one-shot that was well-received by the community. And recently, Fujimoto came up with a new 20-page one-shot, Just Listen to The Song, which is now available to read on Manga Plus.
