Chainsaw Man Claims The Number One Search Spot For 2022

Chainsaw Man is clearly well in the running for being one of the biggest anime released this year, with the story of Denji having some competition with the likes of Spy x Family and Lycoris Recoil. With Studio MAPPA hitting the ground floor running with this anime adaptation, the series is preparing to bid adieu to its first season and has recently become the most searched anime of 2022.       

Unfortunately for fans that have fallen in love with MAPPA's anime adaptation of Chainsaw Man, the first season finale is nigh, as the bloody story has confirmed that it will only run twelve episodes before bringing the initial season to a close. With the latest episodes placing Denji and his friends in dire straits thanks to the arrival of the Katana Man and his mysterious young ally, season one is sure to end with a bang if it continues following the roadmap laid out by Tatsuki Fujimoto's bloody manga series. While no word has been confirmed as of yet when it comes to the possibility of a second season, the series will only become more unbelievable should the anime return.
