Chainsaw Man fans are going to eat well soon. They’re getting a movie soon.
Chainsaw Man is one of the hottest Shonen series out right now, and for good reason. Part of a recent wave of dark Shonen manga and anime, Chainsaw Man has taken the world by storm. Set in an alternate 1990s Japan in which Devils are real and the manifestations of mankind’s fears, Chainsaw Man tells the story of Denji. After getting killed by his Yakuza handlers, Denji fuses with his Devil companion, Pochita, to become Chainsaw Man. Now he works as a Devil Hunter for the government hunting down other Devils in exchange for good food, a roof over his head…and the promise of getting laid.
Chainsaw Man isn’t like previous Shonen hits, and it shows. It’s dark, gritty, and filled with so much blood and gore that it would make concerned parents faint from shock. Thus, it’s pretty popular and liked by people in the Shonen demographic and adults who technically outgrew it. The anime was released in Fall 2022, and much like the manga, it was immensely popular. While the reviews for the anime on this blog were critical towards the end, one cannot deny that Chainsaw Man is good. And while there’s no word on when Season Two comes out, the movie will continue the story with the Bomb Girl arc.
In the manga, the Bomb Girl Arc takes place in the wake of the Katana Man Arc. As Denji continues his duties as a Public Safety Devil Hunter, he seemingly meets the girl of his dreams, Reze. However, even those who have watched the anime know that when good things happen to Denji, they tend to get ripped away from him. Hard. And that’s all I’m going to say without spoiling anything.
I don’t know when this will come out of if it will be out in theaters. However, if it’s released in theaters, I’m going to want to see it on the big screen. Regardless of whatever problems I might have had with the anime, I can’t deny how great Chainsaw Man is. It’s going to be fun!
