Chainsaw Man first hit the scene in 2018 from creator Tatsuki Fujimoto, the mangaka that has worked on a number of one-shots recently that have garnered some serious acclaim. With the anime adaptation from Studio MAPPA set to arrive later this year, the prolific animation house is teaming up with Shibuya Scramble to create a bloody new statue depicting the insanity of the series and just how bloody the hero Denji can become when he dives fully into his Chainsaw Devil form.
Chainsaw Man first debuted in 2018 and is considered to be one of the most thought-provoking Shonen series in recent memory, telling the story of a world of demons that make bargains with regular citizens in order to grant them powers beyond comprehension. With Denji's main goal simply to get a roof over his head, earn three square meals a day, and one day get a girlfriend, the series from Fujimoto was able to buck expectations while telling a tale that was not just filled with blood and gore, but some serious emotion to boot.
Shibuya Scramble and Studio MAPPA revealed a first look at the upcoming statue, recreating one of the biggest covers from the manga series that has become a fan favorite in a relatively short amount of time:
Shibuya Scramble shared an official description of the figure that will be setting up pre-orders on July 5th and will set fans back around $340 USD if they are looking to add this Chainsaw Man statue to their anime collection:
"From the TV anime "Chainsaw Man" comes a 1/7th scale figure of Chainsaw Man! The figure is sculpted with a power that can be heard screaming at any moment. The figure also depicts the moment when the chainsaw rips through a piece of flesh and cuts through the air with great gusto. The bold blood splatter shows the intensity of the battle. Please enjoy the dynamic figure of the zombie demon as it boldly slashes its way through the zombies."
Chainsaw Man is set to have a presence at this year's Anime Expo, taking place later this week, and while it has yet to be confirmed what MAPPA will be bringing to the convention, fans are sure to get some new info when it comes to the upcoming anime series.
