Chainsaw Man has certainly carved out its place as one of the biggest new anime series to arrive in 2022, with arguably the biggest hitters like Spy x Family, Lycoris Recoil and Blue Lock coming closest to taking the crown from Denji and his fellow Devil Hunters. With the season finale wrapping up Denji’s first adventure on the small screen, fans are taking the opportunity to discuss whether MAPPA’s first foray into Tatsuki Fujimoto’s world could live up to anime fans’ high expectations.
Currently, MAPPA has yet to reveal a release date for the second season, or if there will actually be a second season at all. However, based on the popularity of the TV series, it’s a safe bet that we’ll see the return of this world of devils at some point. If you have yet to dive into Fujimoto’s manga series, now might be a good time to check it out, as it could be months, if not years, before the Devil Hunters make their big comeback.
Reddit user Gino With A Question weighed in on expectations for the Chainsaw Man anime and listed their pros and cons for the long-awaited anime debut of Tatsuki Fujimoto’s masterpiece:
