Chainsaw Man fans have been waiting for years to see Denji and his crew of devil hunters hit the small screen, with last year seeing the arrival of the first trailer for the upcoming anime adaptation for Studio MAPPA. With the animation house having a panel at this year's Anime Expo, fans were disappointed that no new trailer, or footage of any kind, was released to the anime community and are taking their disappointment to the 'net as Tatsuki Fujimoto's story of blood and emotion readies to make landfall in a brand new way.
During the Anime Expo panel, series composer Hiroshi Seko, the chief executive officer of MAPPA Manabu Otsuka, and the executive director of MAPPA Makoto Kimura dove further into the production of the long-awaited anime series while also taking the opportunity to address fan questions. Though there was no new trailer in hand, the creative minds behind the series promised fans that the blood and violence that permeated Tatsuki Fujimoto's original tale will be intact. The MAPPA staff also assured fans that the manga's creator had a heavy hand in the creation of the anime, with the second part of Chainsaw Man's manga set to also arrive this year.
Were you bummed to see that a new trailer for Chainsaw Man wasn't in the cards for this year's Anime Expo? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of Denji and his fellow devil hunters.

So they hyped it by saing something big will be revealed during the Chainsaw man panel and we only got few nice answers from the CEO of Mappa. No trailer, no key visual, no VAs. Absolutely nothing. And people paid money and travelled for this. Huge L. Huge disappointment. pic.twitter.com/oidlxEHoNZ— Mario (@Mario73650688) July 4, 2022
