The upcoming Chainsaw Man reveal was announced during Japan Expo 2022 which happened in France from July 14 to July 17, 2022. This news was shared by the AnimeTV Japan Twitter account.
While the Tweet did not reveal more information on what type of Chainsaw Man info fans should expect, it did state that the reveal will be made during Crunchyroll Expo which will happen from August 5-7, 2022.
A Chainsaw Man anime-related announcement at Crunchyroll Expo wouldn’t be too surprising, especially considering the event’s guest lineup. The event will be attended by staff from MAPPA, including executive producer Makoto Kimura and CEO Manabu Otsuka.
Though in the panel, there was no trailer or release date announcement. Given this, fans should keep their expectations in check for the upcoming Crunchyroll Expo as we might still not get a new Chainsaw Man trailer.
It is based on the manga of the same name by Tatsuki Fujimoto which was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump from December 2018 to December 2020.
Recently, Part 2 of manga started with the release of Chapter 98 on Jump+ in Japan and Manga Plus internationally.
Currently, there’s no word yet on an official release date for the Chainsaw Man anime. But MAPPA has indicated that the series is targeting a 2022 release.
