Chainsaw Man is easily one of the highest anticipated anime releases of 2022, with the manga series from Tatsuki Fujimoto introducing a story unlike anything else on the market. With the anime’s recent presence at this year’s Anime Expo, fans were disheartened when no new trailer was released during Studio MAPPA‘s panel, though a new leak might give fans an idea of how long they’ll have to wait for new footage to arrive prior to the anime adaptation’s release this fall.
Chainsaw Man, for those who might have avoided diving into one of the most popular anime franchises of the day, follows a young man named Denji who spends his time working as a hitman for the mob with his beloved, and strange-looking, dog Pochita. Simply attempting to get a roof over their heads, get three square meals a day, and settle down with a girlfriend of his own, Denji finds himself inheriting the power of the Chainsaw Devil and gaining some wild abilities as a result. With the world being plagued by devils and various members of society making deals to give themselves supernatural powers, MAPPA is set to bring the bloody story to life hot on the trail of their work on Attack on Titan and Jujutsu Kaisen.
In a recent stream, staff members of Crunchyroll appear to confirm that the latest trailer for Chainsaw Man will debut at this year’s Crunchyroll Expo, which will be taking place from August 5th to the 7th in San Jose, California.
Recently, Crunchyroll announced that the Chief Executive Officer of Studio MAPPA, Manabu Otsuka, and the Executive Producer and Rights Management Director, Makoto Kimura, would be in attendance, so this reveal certainly tracks if it is indeed coming to Crunchyroll Expo.
Following the conclusion of the first part of Chainsaw Man’s manga, fans have been dying to see what the future holds for Denji and the characters that survived the traumatic events of the final chapters. Needless to say, we definitely would expect for there to be plenty of blood and guts for the series’ comeback.
