Chainsaw man is receiving an anime adaptation according to unofficial sources in the market. This news has been circulating online for quite a few days now and it has been highly speculated that it could be true. There is no reveal about the studio who will be animating the series.
Also, a domain called ‘chainsawman.dog’ has been registered recently. There’s no official confirmation or info about any announcements or upcoming news and so it’s not known if it’s the official domain.
Chainsaw man is a manga series written and illustrated by “Tatsuki Fujimoto”. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s Shonen Jump since “December 2018”. The chapters have been collected into 9 tankobon volumes as of “November 4, 2020”.
The plot of the chainsaw man as mentioned on My Anime List is as follows:
Denji has a simple dream—to live a happy and peaceful life, spending time with a girl he likes. This is a far cry from reality, however, as Denji is forced by the yakuza into killing devils in order to pay off his crushing debts. Using his pet devil Pochita as a weapon, he is ready to do anything for a bit of cash.
Unfortunately, he has outlived his usefulness and is murdered by a devil in contract with the yakuza. However, in an unexpected turn of events, Pochita merges with Denji’s dead body and grants him the powers of a chainsaw devil. Now able to transform parts of his body into chainsaws, a revived Denji uses his new abilities to quickly and brutally dispatch his enemies. Catching the eye of the official devil hunters who arrive at the scene, he is offered work at the Public Safety Bureau as one of them. Now with the means to face even the toughest of enemies, Denji will stop at nothing to achieve his simple teenage dreams.
It was reported earlier in Shonen Jump that Chainsaw Man manga is in its final stages.
