Chainsaw man, the anime adaptation of the manga by Tatsuki Fujimoto has made a major breakthrough in the year 2022 becoming a fan favourite show almost instantly after it’s debut on October 12, 2022. The anime’s popularity skyrocketed as the show progressed becoming an absolute favourite for horror enthusiasts for its extremely gory and action-filled representation.
Now that the fans have experienced Denji’s action for the final time in the season finale of the first season airing on December 27, 2022, they can’t stop wondering what’s in for them in Chainsaw Man season 2!
Chainsaw Man Anime Season 2 No Announcement yet
As of now, the anime studio responsible Studio MAPPA is yet to confirm the very much anticipated season 2 of Chainsaw Man. The season 1 trailer created so much hype among the fans and man also did they satisfy the fans with the show leaving the fans on the edge of their seats. But other than rumours and speculations, official announcement is yet to go public.
Will There Be a Chainsaw Man Season 2?
The show captured an incredible rating of 8.7/10 on IMDb, 94% on Rotten Tomatoes, and 230,000+ votes slicing through the competition in the Top 10 anime of MyAnimeList. Also, the Manga circulation got a huge boost from the anime adaptation of the manga. So the show’s return is expected if not surprisingly Studio MAPPA decides to not capitalize on the ascending popularity of the adaptation leaving the fans in dismay.
More to that there is no official trailer for season 2 as well till now. Meanwhile, MAPPA has dropped a special video containing all the OSTs of Chainsaw Man having different endings for each of every episode.
Chainsaw Man Season 2 Manga: Where To Start?
Now when it comes to sufficient source material for season 2, MAPPA will have just enough to adapt on if not more source material for the sequel. Till now the anime adaptation has done great justice to the manga sticking to it with a few minor changes to the story. So the first season adapted on roughly the first 40 chapters out of 114 chapters.
For fans who are eager to dive into the jaw-dropping actions of Chainsaw Man, we suggest they start from chapter 39, continuing the public safety saga right after Denji’s battle with Katana Man. So that’s more reason for the fans to hope for a second season.
Chainsaw Man Season 2 Release Date Rumours & Predictions
Studio MAPPA, Shueisha, or any company related is yet to declare officially season 2 of Chainsaw Man. There is no announcement of the sequel being in production nor there is any official trailer whatsoever. So that leaves us wondering in a void filled with rumours and predictions.
James Hanson, a popular anime leaker stated that “The second cour already started how they release it is another question”. It should be mentioned that James Hanson has a record of accurate claims in the past. Adding to that, ChifuyuMatsun0 claimed in a tweet that the sequel will be out in 2024.
Fans have been seen flooding the comment section with their anticipations since. Judging the busy schedule of MAPPA studio with Jujutsu Kaisen season 2, Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 3, set to air this year, Chainsaw man is expected to return in 2024, if not delayed, unfortunately.
But these rumours/leaks should be taken with a grain of salt, as the Chainsaw Man season 2 release date is not officially confirmed yet.
Chainsaw Man Remake Petition By Japanese Fans
What’s more interesting is that a Japanese fan started a petition demanding a redo of Chainsaw Man with a different director stating disappointment in its film-like making which completely neglects the manga’s magnitude and disregards the humor of the manga.
They also demanded a change in casting. The petition has already been signed by over 2000 votes and the deadline is set for December 21, 2022.
Chainsaw Man Season 2 Anime Plot: What To Expect?
Season 1 ended amid Public Safety Saga, there will be a continuation of the saga as we will see Denji’s growth over time. It goes without saying that, there will be a huge amount of gore, blood, and fleshes leaving the fans awes.
As of yet we only got to hear about the Gun Devil, but that’s all to that. Also, there is a character evolution of Makima that is still to be done.
So yeah, hoping that it will be a great sequel to the first season! So with that being said, that’s everything we know so far about Chainsaw Man. Don’t forget to share your thoughts with us as well!
