Twitter has been capturing a lot of headlines recently, as Elon Musk's acquisition of the social media platform has sent ripples through the company in more ways than one. While Musk isn't involved in this story, it would seem that anime and Twitter have met once again as the creator of Chainsaw Man, Tatsuki Fujimoto, has run into some strange drama when it comes to his own account. As the first season of the anime series roars thanks to MAPPA, Fujimoto continues working on the manga as well.
For years, Fujimoto has apparently been pretending to be his "younger sister" on social media, Koharu Nagayama, but it seems that this charade has cost the mangaka his Twitter Account as his platform was "disabled" due to "age restrictions", since his "young sister" was apparently a third-year elementary school student. The editor for Chainsaw Man revealed an update for fans when it came to the Twitter drama:
"I have been informed that the account of Tatsuki Fujimoto's younger sister, Koharu-chan, has been deactivated due to problems with her registered age. Her brother, the author, has already contacted Twitter to resolve the situation. Ladies and gentlemen, we'd appreciate it if you can wait for her sister's return to Twitter. Thank you very much."
Chainsaw Twitter Man
If you have yet to dive into the series that many consider to be the anime to beat for 2022, Crunchyroll offered an official description for Chainsaw Man:
"Denji is a teenage boy living with a Chainsaw Devil named Pochita. Due to the debt his father left behind, he has been living a rock-bottom life while repaying his debt by harvesting devil corpses with Pochita. One day, Denji is betrayed and killed. As his consciousness fades, he makes a contract with Pochita and gets revived as 'Chainsaw Man' — a man with a devil's heart."
In the latest episode of Chainsaw Man, Denji was introduced to more devil hunters that he would be working with to take on supernatural forces, though it seems as though the Chainsaw Devil and his allies will be facing their most dangerous threat to date as they enter a mysterious building.
