The Chainsaw Man is preparing to arrive on the small screen this fall thanks to the animators at Studio MAPPA. While only one trailer has been released so far, a new poster for the franchise which follows the Chainsaw Devil has arrived. The anime adaptation is hinting that the second, long-awaited trailer is on the way and it's clear from this new trailer that the television series is aiming to have just as much blood as the source material.
The Official Twitter Account for Chainsaw Man shared this new poster for the upcoming anime adaptation, giving fans of the manga another look at how Studio MAPPA will be handling Denji and his fellow devil hunters in the series that is looking to bring a serious amount of blood and gore to the small screen:

Recently, at this year's Anime Expo, Comicbook.com had the opportunity to talk with a number of the creators that are working on the upcoming anime adaptation. Specifically, screenwriter Hiroshi Seko discussed the reliability of Denji as a Shonen hero and how his personality resonates amongst fans:
"What attracted me was Denji's character and his personality or the reason why he is fighting is very different from your usual hero or protagonist you see in these titles," he shared. "Usually these heroes are fighting for something that they want to protect or there's clearly a bad guy and they're fighting them. It's not anything where they are very true to their inner needs. Denji is fighting to make ends meet. He's fighting to eat food and meet women. That's like the driving force behind his character and you don't see that that often."
Viz Media shared an official description of Chainsaw Man on its website, giving fans an idea of the bloody world created by Tatsuki Fujimoto:
"Denji was a small-time devil hunter just trying to survive in a harsh world. After being killed on a job, he is revived by his pet devil-dog Pochita and becomes something new and dangerous—Chainsaw Man!"
