Chainsaw Man Anime Finally Gets Release Date


The highly anticipated Chainsaw Man anime series finally has a release date, with episode one arriving on October 11.
Announced on its official Twitter account, the release date came alongside a new trailer for the series (below) and confirmation that it would run for 12 episodes in total. The first episode will also be available for streaming on Crunchyroll.
Chainsaw Man - a beloved manga series about a teenage devil hunter who's brought back from the dead with chainsaws for hands - is one of the most anticipated anime adaptations of this year. Its page on the online manga and anime database My Anime List already has more than 500,000 members and its release date announcement tweet hit 100,000 likes in just 26 minutes.

Details on the anime's opening and closing themes were also released, with Kenshi Yonezu performing the opener and the credits featuring a different soundtrack in each episode, played by artists including Maximum the Hormone, Ano, People 1, and more.
As evidenced in this new and previous trailer, Chainsaw Man is as violent and gory as any anime about a chainsaw man could be.
Crunchyroll's chief content officer Asa Suehira said previously that it features "dark humour, dynamic characters and a sharp story," and that "anime fans will be up all night thinking about the spectacular visuals and high-octane action."

Made In Abyss: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun (Season 2)

Based on the manga by Akihito Tsukushi, this awesome action-adventure series became a cult fave among anime lovers when it was released in 2017. Since then fans have gotten a feature length movie continuing the story, but have been waiting patiently for the second season. This immersive fantasy series is set in a world where a strange series of deep pits and tunnels run under the surface of the land. Known as the Abyss, they are relatively undiscovered. But brave explorers known as Cave Raiders explore them in the hopes of finding strange artifacts. One of those adventurers is our protagonist Riko, who discovers an unexpected family secret that leads her deeper into the Abyss. Though we don't know exactly when, we do know season two will be hitting sometime in 2022 and we can't wait. 
Tiger & Bunny Season 2 

If you can believe it, it'll be eleven years since season one of Tiger & Bunny debuted by the time the second season hits next year. While it might seem like a long time to wait, it's actually fitting as this series was well ahead of its time. A meta-commentary on the commercialism of superheroes before the MCU became the monolith it is today, Tiger & Bunny is set in the futuristic NYC-inspired NC 1978. Their superheroes are the ultimate celebrities, including the titular heroes. In a post-The Boys age, this is a cult fave and the original voice actors will be returning to the highly anticipated followup. The question is how will Tiger & Bunny have changed to reflect our even more superhero-saturated times. 
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners

Directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi and produced by Studio Trigger, this spinoff of the controversial Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the biggest anime releases of next year. While the series will take place in Night City, it's an entirely separate story from the game which makes sense after the troubled launch. We don't know much but it will apparently center on a young street kid trying to survive in the futuristic space who decides the best way to make it is to become an Attack on Titan Final Season Part 2 

After that unbelievable heel turn in the first half of season four, viewers are chomping at the bit to find out what's going to happen with Eren Jaeger and his friends in the final episodes of Attack on Titan. The manga from Hajime Isayama and the anime that it inspired have become nothing short of a global cultural phenomenon, which means a lot of fans will be both looking forward to and dreading the second half of season four coming up so soon. It's hard to talk too much about what we want here without massive spoilers, but a redemption arc would be welcome alongside that classic Attack on Titan giant monster action. 
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero 

After the record breaking success of Dragon Ball: Super Broly, arguably the most famous anime franchise on Earth is heading back to the big screen with a brand new movie. Original creator Akira Toriyama returns once again to write and provide more character designs for the 21st Dragon Ball movie! Timeline-wise the new flick takes place around the end of Dragon Ball Z in Age 784. Fan favorite characters Goku, Bulma, Piccolo, Vegeta, Broly, and a kindergarten age Pan are confirmed as well as two recently revealed new characters Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. It looks like another action-packed entry into the sprawling anime series that'll once again set the bar for the industry and big screen anime releases in the US.
