Chainsaw Man Announces Anime Order with an Epic Poster

It has been a long time coming, but Chainsaw Man is preparing to make a big leap to TV. This week, fans were equal parts excited and upset to say goodbye to the series as its final chapter prepared to debut. However, those fears were tossed out when it was revealed the series would continue with a new arc in print. And to further celebrate the hit series, Chainsaw Man confirmed an anime adaptation is in the works with a slick poster reveal!

It wasn't long ago the official announcement for Chainsaw Man went live. Shonen Jump hit up fans on Twitter to let netizens know the recent rumors were true. The big announcement coincides with the debut of Weekly Shonen Jump's new issue.

According to the announcement, Chainsaw Man is getting its own anime, and MAPPA will be overseeing production as rumored. This means the studio is undertaking yet another project in its packed year. After all, MAPPA got fans hyped in 2020 with its work on The God of High School. It has continued that streak with Attack on Titan and Jujutsu Kaisen, so Chainsaw Man will only continue the studio's hot streak.

As you can see above, a key visual was shown for Chainsaw Man's anime. The gritty poster shows the series' titular character in all of his bloody glory. The teaser captures the gore fans see regularly in the series, and fans are loving this stylistic take on Chainsaw Man in action.

This big anime is expected to drop next y year, but an official release date has yet to be announced. But if you want to catch up on the series, you can use Viz Media's digital vault as it contains all of Chainsaw Man's chapters to date!
