The Chainsaw Man panel at Anime Expo 2022 was an exciting one for fans although there were not a lot of major updates on the anime. However, there was one thing that MAPPA wanted to assure fans about: The producers promised that the upcoming adaptation will not be censored at all!

Chainsaw Man's panel at Anime Expo 2022 was one of the most highly anticipated panels during the convention. However, there wasn't any new art, trailers or even a final release date. According to Manabu Otsuka, the CEO of MAPPA, they are waiting for the perfect time to release more material from the series (via CBR). However, Otsuka assures fans of Tatsuki Fujimoto's acclaimed manga that the adaptation won't tone down the blood, gore, and violence.

There is little doubt that we'll be getting more updates on Chainsaw Man soon. Although it has not yet been confirmed, there are speculations that the anime's new trailer and key visual will be dropped in the next few weeks. In addition to that, people are hoping that the official release date will finally be announced before the end of the month.

Chainsaw Man follows Denji, a young man living in poverty and working off his deceased father's debt to the yakuza by working as a devil hunter. He is aided by Pochita, his canine companion and Chainsaw Devil. But when Denji is betrayed by the Yakuza and left for dead, he merges with Pochita and becomes a human-devil Hybrid. After Denji massacres the yakuza, he is approached by Makima who convinces him to join a team of governmental devil hunters known as the Public Safety Division.

For now, Chainsaw Man has not yet been given an official release date. However, the anime is already expected to premiere sometime in 2022.
