Chainsaw Man was one of the most popular manga in the world during its two-year run, and we’ll soon get our first glimpse of the anime. The adaptation will be handled by MAPPA, the studio behind Jujutsu Kaisen and Attack on Titan Final Season, and it seems that the show will appear during the studio’s 10th anniversary event on June 27.

On Friday, the official Chainsaw Man Twitter account tweeted a link to MAPPA’s 10th anniversary event website, where Chainsaw Man’s art is on the schedule. The series’ anime teaser website, chainsawman.dog, also now has a link to MAPPA’s event schedule. While it’s clear that the show will be at MAPPA’s event in some way, we don’t know if this will include a trailer and release date announcement, or just the reveal of more art.

The Chainsaw Man adaptation was first announced in December 2020, when the show’s Twitter account revealed the first bit of art from the anime, as well as the fact that it would be animated by MAPPA.

Chainsaw Man is written and illustrated by Tatsuki Fujimoto. The manga takes place in a world full of evil creatures called Devils, and follows the story of Denji, a human-Devil hybrid who merged with his chainsaw-shaped dog Pochita — who was really a Devil in disguise — to become the ultimate Devil hunter.
