We've always known that Chainsaw Man is awesome but now we have official proof. Tatsuki Fujimoto's work has just won the Harvey Award for Best Manga as announced at New York Comic Con 2021.
The Harvey Awards made the announcement at NYCC 2021 then shared the news on its official Twitter account.
It's an awesome win for Chainsaw Man, which was up against some heavyhitters. The other nominees included Asadora! by Naoki Urasawa, Boys Run the Riot by Keito Gaku, Remina by Junji Ito, and Spy x Family by Tatsuya Endo.
Fujimoto was understandably delighted by the win. Viz Media shared the mangaka's reaction to Chainsaw Man's new award.
"Thank you for the insanely awesome award! It's the best award of any awards that exist in America! I consider this crude manga of mine unbefitting of any award, but I plan to continue packing it full of all the things that I love. If you ever happen to be handing out awards again, hit me up! Thank you very much!" Fujimoto stated.
We're loving the surprise win for Chainsaw Man which is a great treat for the manga after it ended last December and ahead of the anime's expected premiere later this year. Needless to say, Fujimoto is on a roll and we can't wait to see how it will all go down.
The Chainsaw Man anime has not yet been given an official release date. However, there are speculations that it will premiere by the end of 2021. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
