The hit manga ‘Chainsaw Man’ is getting an anime adaptation, but which studio is adapting the series and when could it release?
There are literally thousands of manga series from around the world available for you to read online. However, there aren’t that many series quite like Chainsaw Man.
With a darker theme than many other traditional series, alongside extremely gory violence and a set of superb characters, the manga has become a fan-favourite over recent years.
Last week, reports were spreading like a wildfire across social media that an anime adaptation of Chainsaw Man would be produced, but it has now been officially confirmed!
Chainsaw Man anime…
Last week, rumours about an anime started when The Unofficial Shonen Jump News Twitter page tweeted that a “TV anime adaptation” for Chainsaw Man would be produced.
Many fans had been expecting an anime adaptation to be revealed following the conclusion of the manga this coming weekend after author Tatsuki Fujimoto said that an “important announcement” would be made.
On Sunday, December 13th, it was officially confirmed that the epic series would be making its television debut.
MAPPA letting it rip…
The anime adaptation of Chainsaw Man will be produced by the animation studio MAPPA.
MAPPA has had an incredible year so far, producing The God of High School, Dorohedoro, Jujutsu Kaisen and the final season of Attack on Titan.
Considering how visually-stunning these series have been, fans are understandably extremely excited about having MAPPA potentially at the helm of the Chainsaw Man anime.
An official poster image for the Chainsaw Man anime was released, alongside confirmation that studio MAPPA would be at the helm.
Chainsaw Man anime release date…
- At the time of writing, an official release date for the Chainsaw Man anime has not been revealed, but the series is expected to premiere in November 2021.
Whilst there is no official information on the potential release date of the Chainsaw Man anime, we can speculate on when the series would premiere based on the production schedule for a similar project; Jujutsu Kaisen.
Similar to Chainsaw Man, Jujutsu Kaisen is a direct manga adaptation and had enough source material to create at least one season straight-off-the-bat.
The Jujutsu Kaisen anime was announced on November 25th, 2019 and premiered on October 3rd, 2020.
Assuming that a Chainsaw Man adaptation experiences a similar production schedule under MAPPA, fans could expect the series to premiere in November 2021.
