May 16, 2022

The entire anime community is waiting for any news on Chainsaw Man, another ambitious project from MAPPA. While we don’t have an exact release date for the project yet, Crunchyroll recently confirmed that the anime adaptation would arrive on the platform later this year.

Chainsaw Man is one of the most-awaited anime series of 2022. MAPPA plans on releasing the project during the Fall 2022 anime season. So, the anime community will get it around the same time when Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War Arc, Jojo Stone Ocean Part 2, and Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 will come out.

MAPPA released the first teaser for Chainsaw Man back in June 2021, and it was enough to break the internet. However, it has been a while since we’ve seen a new trailer or poster for the upcoming anime series.
