JAPAN: The makers of Chainsaw Man have introduced a new key visual. The preview release date was also disclosed alongside the anime visual.
Chainsaw Man is based on Tatsuki Fujimoto’s groundbreaking manga of the same name, which follows the journey of Denji, a poor boy who hunts devils for money with the assistance of his devil-dog Pochita. On one tragic day, his life takes a wild turn, transforming him into Chainsaw Man, a devil-human hybrid.
Chainsaw Man manga gained massive popularity among the fans
Since the debut of the Chainsaw Man manga, it has become a worldwide phenomenon, receiving international acclaim. The manga series was originally published in 2018 and quickly gained an enormous fanbase. There are currently 11 volumes accessible to read, with the first part published from 2018 to 2020. The second instalment began in July 2022, and since then, it has become the most discussed manga series on the internet.
The anime rendition of the manga was announced in December 2020 under the banner of MAPPA, which joined the venture as an animation studio. The fluid animation design and brutal action sequences have fascinated audiences since the publication of the first trailer. The official video featured a quick glimpse of what appeared to be a perfectly converted manga panel.
Chainsaw Man’s official Twitter account has shared a new key visual. The poster depicts Denji after he has fully transformed into a devil-human hybrid. The thrilling chainsaw on his head and the blades straight ripping through his limbs with a lot of blood suggest that the studio did full justice to the manga’s grim concept. The key visual is reminiscent of the volume 1 manga cover.
Along with unveiling the key visuals, the creators announced the next preview’s debut on August 5 at 8 p. m. The show’s voice cast will also be revealed during the allotted time. The broadcast will be streamed live on MAPPA’s YouTube account. The new trailer and the release date are likely to be released on the panel mentioned above. According to the previous announcement, the anime will premiere in the fall of 2022.
