Chainsaw Man Success, Voice Cast
The ongoing Fall 2022 season is a big one for anime fans as there are lots of highly anticipated shows that are currently airing.
Fujimoto’s manga series originally came out in 2018, and it has since become one of Shueisha’s biggest modern hits in terms of copies in circulation.
Back in July, Part 2 of Chainsaw Man began serialization, though new chapters are released on Jump+ instead of Weekly Shonen Jump.

As for the anime series, it began airing in October 2022, and it has proven to be one of this season’s biggest hits, with each new episode trending on various platforms online.
The Chainsaw Man anime living up to the hype is a result of many factors, but a huge part of it is the staff and cast who work behind the scenes to make the show as thrilling and entertaining as it is.
