The one anime that has been causing ripples throughout the anime world in recent times is Chainsaw Man. This has happened after the recent announcement of its anime that is going to be aired later this year. Let us give you an example of the amount of popularity this series has gathered till now.
A few months back, MAPPA announced the official confirmation of the anime for Chainsaw Man through a Youtube stream. All the fans of this series had gathered there and spammed in the comments an inside joke related to Chainsaw Man. That’s how insane and crazy people can go over this title.
Chainsaw Man has a total collection of 11 volumes until this point in time. It ran for two years, from December 2018 to December 2020. Shueisha was the license holder for the series who saw a record number of sales in their copies.
Many people thought the series had concluded, but it has been confirmed by the author that Chainsaw Man is far from over, and the story will be back with its second arc. The second arc will be a school arc where Denji will be shown going to school and balancing his life activities by its side.
The author of this popular series is Tatsuki Fujimoto, who has presented such a brilliant gem for his fans. Before the release of Chainsaw Man, Tatsuki Fujimoto was famous for the creation of Fire Punch. Now, he has got another feather to add to his crown. He has also won the Shogakukan Manga Award for Chainsaw Man in 2021.
The popularity of Chainsaw Man is further established by the fact that even though there are many big names like Attack on Titan, Jujutsu Kaisen, and Demon Slayer that are going to be released this year, Chainsaw Man has not been lost in their shadows.
People are equally excited for this new series despite it not even having a lot of chapters in the manga. Since Shueisha is the official license holder of Chainsaw Man, the manga can be read from the website of Mangaplus Shueisha.
They will also update the new chapters of Chainsaw Man on their website when the second arc gets released. The official trailer for the Chainsaw Man anime has also been released, but it is safe to say that fans haven’t quite received it well.
They are already predicting that the anime may not live up to the potential of the manga, but this is just mere speculation. Overall, the trailer has been good enough and has stuck to the dark and gore theme of the story.
The trailer starts at a slow pace showing a normal life, and then suddenly transitions to a massacre which is exactly how the story progresses. Naturally, they will not want to reveal a lot of things in the trailer and have decided to keep it short of piquing the fan’s interests and keeping them guessing.

Life took a sudden turn for me when I finally decided to watch Kimi no nawa & Clannad. While both of them made me cry and introduced me to this vast world of anime. The Anime and Manga world is an escape for me from this complicated real world and serves as a relief. Being a content writer for OtakusNotes still feels like a dream and has been one of the best things to happen to me this year. It has been a productive distraction for me and I am loving every moment of it.
