Since the dawn of time, Chainsaw Man has been one of the most anticipated anime of the year, and it didn’t fail to deliver. The plot of the series is fairly straightforward- it follows the protagonist Denji who makes a living killing devils for the Yakuza.

When the Yakuza tries to have him killed, he forms a contract with his pet devil, a dog named Pochita, allowing him to turn his body parts into a chainsaw. The Public Safety Bureau, an organization consisting of official Devil Hunters, takes note of Denji’s abilities and takes him under their wing.

  • While the synopsis might seem a bit generic or shonen-esque, what sets Chainsaw Man apart is its gore and violence.
  • It doesn’t shy away from addressing darker themes as well. It is marketed towards a more mature audience and is hence also sometimes referred to as a Seinen anime.

While the first season exceeded viewers’ expectations with its flashy fights and unique ending themes, what does the second season have in store for fans? Let’s find out!

  1. The first season ends at Chapter 38, which means the second season should ideally pick up at Chapter 39. Unfortunately, as of now, we still haven’t received any official confirmation regarding Season 2.
  2. As a consequence,  we still have no updates regarding when exactly the new season will air. Of course, there is no guarantee that a second season is even in the works.

However, considering Chainsaw Man’s immense popularity, it is hard to believe that the studio (MAPPA, as of now) is not at least considering a Season 2.

Going by MAPPA’s release schedules, we can estimate a Season 2 release in late 2023 or 2024.  For further updates, be sure to keep checking up on this page as well as on MAPPA’s official Twitter account

Chainsaw Man Season 2 Possibilities

What can viewers expect to see from Chainsaw Man Season 2? Well, the manga has over 97 chapters, and Season 1 adapted only about 38 of them. So it is possible that Season 2 will pick up right where the previous season left off, and adapt at least up to Chapters 65-70.

It could even adapt the entire remainder of the manga, considering the pace is kept fast enough. Whatever happens, it’s clear we’ll get to see lots more gore, violence, action, and of course, lots more of Chainsaw Man’s signature dark humor. Here’s to hoping we receive more information about Season 2 soon!
