The anime version of Chainsaw Man is based on a manga with the same name that was written by Fujimoto Tatsuki sensei and ran in Shueisha’s Shonen Manga Magazine (Weekly Shonen Jump) from December 2018 to December 2020.
The story is about a boy named Denji, whose life had been hard because the yakuza forced him to pay off the debts of his dead father (criminal organization; its literal translation is good for nothing). Denji’s life goes from bad to worse when he meets a creature he thinks is a low-level devil dog, but who turns out to be the embodiment of one of the people’s worst fears: the fear of chainsaws.
Action fiction, comedy horror, and dark fantasy are all common themes in Chainsaw Man. It makes people curious in ways that are hard to explain. It has a rank of #41 and a popularity rank of #4. It has a score of 8.75/10, which means that more than 80% of people who watched it liked the story.
It was said to be a very intense, fast-paced, and well-animated show. Even so, it has some scary or heart-wrenching scenes that not everyone would be comfortable with. For this reason, it is usually recommended that people be 18 or older and mentally stable before reading the manga or watching the anime for the respective series.
Chainsaw Man Season 2 Release Date
Like other short animes, Chainsaw Man would probably have a couple of seasons with twelve episodes each until it finished telling the story of the manga. This pretty much means that Chainsaw Man will have a second season, even if the official crew hasn’t said anything about it yet.
It was decided and confirmed that the manga would be turned into a live-action show at the start of 2022. The show began airing on October 12, 2022. It’s an anime that comes out in episodes every week. The second episode of the show’s first season is set to come out on Tuesday, October 18, 2022. And since each season will have 12 episodes, the show is likely to end in the last week of December 2022.
When Mappa announced that the series would be made into an anime, all of the manga readers were overjoyed. Fans were also happy because Mappa is one of the studios that makes the animation look like it was worth the wait. Since it did the animation for the last few seasons of Shingeki no Kyojin, Mappa has been at its best (Attack on Titan).

Chainsaw Man Season 2 Story
Depending on how many chapters they use in one anime episode, the first season of the show would cover about 36 to 40 chapters of the manga. That is, if there were no filler arcs, it would cover the Intro Arc, the Bat Devil Arc, the Eternity Devil Arc, and the Katana Arc. That pretty much means that the storylines for the second season will probably be about the Bomb Girl Arc, the International Assassins Arc, and the Gun Devil Arc.
Denji, a boy between the ages of 16 and 17, lost his parents and now works for the yakuza to pay off the huge debt his father left him. After his father dies, Denji meets a devil dog. He names it Pochita and gives it some of his blood. This is kind of like a deal between Denji and Pochita that Pochita will help him make money by doing odd jobs.
After he was reborn, he meets Maxima, who is a high-ranking Public Safety Devil Hunter, and offers to hire him, give him a place to live, food to eat, and a salary as well. Of the offers Denji couldn’t refuse, so he took them up on them. There, he meets characters like Power, who is the Blood Fiend, and other members of the Special Division, like Aki.
The only part of the devil hunter’s association where hybrids, friends, and humans who have contracts with demons all work together to hunt demons is the special division. But when the yakuza realized he wasn’t useful anymore, they turned on him and let the zombie devil kill him.
That’s when Pochita and Denji made another deal in which Denji gave Pochita his heart and Pochita became his heart. This brought him back to life as a devil-human hybrid called Chainsaw Man (as Pochita was a Chainsaw Devil).
