Is Chainsaw Man Anime Canceled? Truth Or Rumor Revealed!

Tatsuki Fujimoto is the author and illustrator of the Japanese manga series Chainsaw Man (Japanese:, Hepburn: Chens Man). From December 2018 to December 2020, its first part was serialised in Shueisha’s shunen manga magazine Weekly Shunen Jump. In July 2022, its second part started serialisation in Shueisha’s online magazine Shunen Jump+. As of October 2022, its chapters have been compiled into 12 tank-bon volumes.

The plot of Chainsaw Man centres on Denji, a poor young man who enters into a deal to have his body fused with that of a canine devil named Pochita, giving him the power to turn specific body parts into chainsaws. Eventually, Denji enlists in the Public Safety Devil Hunters, a government organisation tasked with battling demons whenever they pose a threat to the world.

Is Chainsaw Man Anime Canceled?

Online rumours indicate that the American broadcast of the Chainsaw Man anime has been cancelled, but is there any truth to these allegations?

On October 11, The Chainsaw Man anime debuted with possibly one of the best first episodes in recent memory.

The second episode, which debuted on October 18, moved much more slowly than the first one did. It introduced Aki and Power as well as the idea of Public Safety devil hunting.

Truth or Rumor!

As a matter of fact, neither the domestic Japanese broadcast of the Chainsaw Man anime nor its global streaming release via Crunchyroll have been cancelled.

It’s impossible to pinpoint where these claims first surfaced, but on October 12, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission published a thread regarding the anime Chainsaw Man, which some fans may have mistakenly linked to the recent allegations that the series was being cancelled.

The thread poked light of the series’ title, “Man made of Chainsaws. Hm,” before offering readers some sound advise on how to use chainsaws and other potentially dangerous equipment safely. Here is a more thorough summary of the posts.

Even though online allegations that the anime broadcast has been cancelled are false, there is an interesting element to the “cancel culture” movement, even though it is wildly exaggerated after only two episodes.

These suspicions most likely started after Makima stated in Chainsaw Man episode 2 that she was interested in “Denji-type of guys” and would treat a man like a pet. Although there is no explicit sexual contact between the two in the second episode of the series, she is evidently merely trying to force him to join their experimental devil-hunting team.

Despite our desire to avoid giving away season events, there may be elements that may make some viewers uncomfortable due to the age gap between the two; Makima is in her mid-twenties, but her exact age is still unknown.

There are threads about the show being cancelled because Denji handled guns while still a minor, but the thread’s creator has acknowledged that these messages are false and that they were the result of trolling.

It is important to remember that Chainsaw Man is classified 17+ for a reason and was not created with a younger audience in mind.

To be clear, the Crunchyroll simulcast of Chainsaw Man has not been cancelled; episode 2, “Arrival in Tokyo,” was released on October 18 and the future episodes will stream as scheduled.
