Chainsaw Man Season 2: Release Date, What To Read, Cast & More

Chainsaw Man was one of the best anime this year in every aspect, from its animation to its storyline. After delivering a great storyline, fans are waiting to know more details about season 2 of the anime.

The anime is adapted from Fujimoto Tatsuki’s Japanese manga of the same name. So far, the manga series has received two parts: Public Safety Saga and the Academy Saga. The first part of the series has officially ended with 97 chapters. Whereas the Academy Saga is still ongoing right now with more new characters.

Chainsaw Man first received serialization on 3rd December 2018. The first saga ended on 14th December 2020. The current Academy Saga received serialization on 13th July 2022.

Besides the plot and other aspects, the characters are also quite interesting. Makina has become one of the fascinating characters which have not been seen in recent years in anime. But there is more to come as the anime progresses. The Four Horsemen are the primary antagonists of the plot, but the ongoing manga has yet to cover them all.

What Is the Storyline of Chainsaw Man?

On Crunchyroll, the official plot synopsis suggests: “Denji is a young boy who works as a Devil Hunter with the “Chainsaw Devil” Pochita. One day, as he was living his miserable life trying to pay off the debt he inherited from his parents, he got betrayed and killed. As he was losing his consciousness, he made a deal with Pochita, and got resurrected as the “Chainsaw Man”: the owner of the Devil’s heart.”

Spoiler Alert: Chainsaw Man has no happy ending if someone longs for it. The plot is set in a dystopian world full of devils worldwide. Devil Hunter is the association that keeps those devils in check.

Season 2 will primarily cover the Bomb Girl Arc, which is quite fascinating. By the end of the anime, Reze’s introduction confirmed the fact. This will unfold more about Denji and Pochita’s past, which is quite shocking and will, of course, stun the fans.

Reze will bring a massive change in Denji’s character and personality by acting as the villain of the plot. To be precise, Reze is the deuteragonist in the Bomb Girl Arc.

Just like the first season, season 2 will follow the same 12 episodes format for the series. The Bomb Girl arc has enough source material to cover those episodes.

After finishing these, there is a new saga called Academy Saga, with two more ongoing arcs under that.
