Chainsaw Man is easily one of the biggest manga series that has yet to receive an anime adaptation of its own, so it's no surprise that fans are freaking out with the arrival of a new trailer for the dark adventures of Denji and company. With Studio MAPPA, the legendary animation studio that is responsible for Jujutsu Kaisen and Attack On Titan's final season, taking the reins of this upcoming adaptation, it's clear that the bloody tale is most assuredly in good hands.
The clip was released by MAPPA today at a fan event in Japan. The special gathering was held to celebrate MAPPA and its upcoming line of series. For instance, Attack on Titan was discussed at this event since its final season will return early next year. So as expected, MAPPA had to make good on Chainsaw Man given how popular the series has become.

If you are unfamiliar with Chainsaw Man, the series comes from Tatsuki Fujimoto who previously penned Fire Punch. The creator first published Chainsaw Man at the end of 2018 before wrapping its first installment last year. At this point, fans are not sure when chainsaw man will return for its second half, but they are anxiously awaiting the announcement.
MAPPA announced its plans to adapt the manga in 2020, and Chainsaw Man has only become more popular since then. As of this March, the manga was closing in on 10 million copies in circulation, and audiences worldwide have praised Fujimoto's manga for its dark story. Now, fans can see how MAPPA plans on handling their adaptation, so here's to hoping Chainsaw Man lives up to the hype.
