On the face of it, Chainsaw Man looks like just another manga. However, readers will attest that Tatsuki Fujimoto’s manga is something special. If you want to keep up to date with the latest chapters, Chainsaw Man Part 2’s manga release schedule will ensure you don’t miss a moment.
Chainsaw Man was first published in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2018. Since then, it has amassed over 100 chapters and multiple Chainsaw Man volumes.
Over Chainsaw Man’s run, the hit manga has won a wealth of awards and accolades. It is now one of the most popular manga around, and with an anime adaptation, its popularity will only increase.
Chainsaw Man's Manga Release Schedule
Chainsaw Man is released on Tuesdays. However, it regularly shifts between being released weekly and bi-weekly.
The first chapter of Part 2, chapter 98, was published on Wednesday 13th July 2022. Initially, it appeared that the series would release new chapters weekly, but that started to change after only a month.
Since Part 2 returned, the schedule has regularly flipped between releasing chapters every week and every two weeks. In April 2023, the series was released weekly, but during May, there were regularly two-week gaps.

Will Chainsaw Man Be Released Weekly or Bi-Weekly?
The main reason why Chainsaw Man's schedule changes between weekly and bi-weekly releases is simply because the series is now released online rather than in print.
The Chainsaw Man manga was originally published in Weekly Shonen Jump. As a result, new chapters pretty much had to be produced weekly for the magazine. There would be occasional breaks, but weekly was the usual schedule.
While Chainsaw Man was initially released in Weekly Shonen Jump, Part 2 is published in Shonen Jump+, an online alternative.
While Shonen Jump+ doesn’t have the publicity of the original magazine, publishing online comes with advantages for Fujimoto. There are fewer restrictions on his work, both in terms of page quantity and, importantly, scheduling.
Many series on Shonen Jump+ have irregular schedules, with some series coming out bi-weekly or weekly with scheduled breaks. There are a few series that even arrive on Shonen Jump+ monthly.
Fujimoto previously said in interviews that he finds weekly manga releases to be “too intense”. Therefore, it would be unsurprising if Chainsaw Man Part 2 continues to move between weekly and bi-weekly release schedules depending on the storyline.
