It’s finally happening! The latest Weekly Shonen Jump just officially confirmed that a Chainsaw Man anime is headed our way. We also couldn’t be happier that MAPPA studio will be taking charge on the animation, especially given their track record with anime like Dorohedoro, Dororo, Jujutsu Kaisen, and Attack on Titan: The Final Season.
Since the time of writing this post, we’ve found out that the Chainsaw Man anime is going to be directed by Ryu Nakayama (Jujutsu Kaisen) at MAPPA with screenplay by Koji Seko (Attack on Titan), character design by Kazutaka Sugiyama (Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation), devil design by Kiyotaka Oshiyama (Devilman Crybaby), and music by Kensuke Ushio (Space Dandy, Devilman Crybaby, A Silent Voice).
Out of all the series, this is the manga we wanted to see adapted most and we couldn’t be happier that it’s finally getting its time on the screen! You can check out the official announcement, first visual release, and promo video below.
Update: Added new promo video released by MAPPA.
