Chainsaw Man


The editor of the wacky Chainsaw Man manga revealed on January 2 that the recently wrapped-up weekly manga series (don't worry, it'll be back!) has had 6.4 million copies sold and printed in Japan as of the release of volume 10, which came out today in Japan.

Even though the wonderfully insane manga that is Tatsuki Fujimoto’s Chainsaw Man has ended its run in Weekly Shonen Jump, a "part two" of the manga series will soon be appearing on the Shonen Jump+ app, and a TV anime adaptation from studio MAPPA will be coming soon. Viz Media releases the series in English and describes it as such:


Denji’s a poor young man who’ll do anything for money, even hunting down devils with his pet devil-dog Pochita. He’s a simple man with simple dreams, drowning under a mountain of debt. But his sad life gets turned upside down one day when he’s betrayed by someone he trusts. Now with the power of a devil inside him, Denji’s become a whole new man—Chainsaw Man!
