Chainsaw Man is aiming to become the top new anime series released in 2022, featuring a bloody world that is also strangely endearing in following Denji, Power, Aki, and Makima's adventures. Releasing its first episodes next month, the series is promoting the bloody tale via promotional materials which give fans a fresh look at the biggest Devil Hunters that spawned from Tatsuki Fujimoto's imagination. MAPPA has unveiled new key artwork in promoting upcoming "Pop-Up Shops" for the series, giving fans a closer look at the main quartet.
While Denji might be the star of the series, he won't be alone when it comes to cutting through devils in an attempt to not just save the world, but also earn three square meals a day, put a roof over his head, and potentially earn his way into the heart of a girl. Joined by the Blood Devil Power, the mysterious Makima, and the swordsman Aki, the Public Safety Commission has some serious aces up its sleeve, but even with all of this power, it still might not be enough to save humanity from the ever-encroaching devil threat, especially when it comes to the Gun Devil, who is wreaking havoc around the world.
The Official Chainsaw Man Twitter Account shared new artwork from the upcoming "Pop-Up Shop", with these merchandise purveyors being a typical occurrence in Japan when it comes to many anime franchises, that features Denji, Makima, Aki, and Power side-by-side before the anime adaptation hits next month:
While the anime adaptation is preparing to make landfall this October, the manga story by Tatsuki Fujimoto has recently entered its "second chapter", exploring the follow-up of the devastating events that took place in the first installment's chapters. Introducing a new character in Asa Mikata, a young high schooler who has struck a deal with the War Devil to survive, the second phase of the printed story has shifted the story significantly than what came before, though Denji has recently returned.
It might still be too early to confirm a second season for Chainsaw Man's anime adaptation, but MAPPA has gone on the record when it comes to the works of Tatsuki Fujimoto, they'd be happy to adapt all they could.
