There is little doubt that fans are already hyped up for the Chainsaw Man anime but it looks like the manga is also getting an awesome update soon. Manga editor Shihei Lin has just confirmed that Chainsaw Man Part 2 is already in the works and we could be getting more updates on Tatsuki Fujimoto's progress soon!
Shihei Lin recently tweeted about Tatsuki Fujimoto's latest manga Goodbye Eri, announcing that the mangaka's latest manga will be compiled and published as a volume. Goodbye Eri will be released in July and the editor promised that there will be a new announcement about the manga soon.
Interestingly, Lin's tweet also teased an update on Chainsaw Man Part 2. The editor confirmed that the next part of the manga is currently in the works. However, it will take some time and Lin asks fans for their patience.
This is a small yet exciting update. Fans have been waiting for Chainsaw Man Part 2 for some time now but we have yet to get an official word about the manga's future. Luckily, Shihei Lin has given readers something else to look forward to this year. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
But when can we expect the Chainsaw Man anime? There were previous reports suggesting that the MAPPA-produced series will drop in Fall 2022, possibly in October, and will consist of 2 cours. This has yet to be confirmed but it's certainly something to watch out for.
Chainsaw Man follows Denji, a young man living in poverty and working off his deceased father's debt to the yakuza by working as a devil hunter. He is aided by Pochita, his canine companion and Chainsaw Devil. But when Denji is betrayed by the Yakuza and left for dead, he merges with Pochita and becomes a human-devil Hybrid. After Denji massacres the yakuza, he is approached by Makima who convinces him to join a team of governmental devil hunters known as the Public Safety Division.
For now, Chainsaw Man has not yet been given an official release date. However, the anime is already expected to premiere sometime in 2022. Chainsaw Man Part 2 is also set for release this year. The Goodbye Eri volume will be published on July 4, 2022.
