What is “Chainsaw Man”?
The first part of the manga “Chainsaw Man” was serialized in “Weekly Shonen Jump” and the second part is currently serialized in “Shonen Jump +” by Tatsuki Fujimoto.

The manga’s relentless depiction, development, and worldview have been a hit with many readers, and even before the decision was made to make it into an anime, it had already become a hot topic among manga fans.
Attention from the World
The expectations and reactions to the anime have not been limited to Japan, but have reached overseas.
Just by looking at the comments on the PV, the live special program, and the official tweets, we can see that there has been a great deal of response from overseas.
This may not seem unusual now that the latest works can be enjoyed all over the world without any time difference, but this work was in the top 20 of the monthly sales ranking of Adult graphic novels in the U.S. even before the anime adaptation was decided, and has appeared as a regular in the ranking since the anime adaptation was decided. Even before the anime was broadcast, this work was already highly popular overseas.
The fact that a popular original work is being produced by a studio that is also popular has attracted a great deal of attention from overseas.
