Everything we know about Chainsaw Man Season 2: release date + manga arc to be covered

Everything we know about Chainsaw Man Season 2 release date + manga arc to be covered

The Chainsaw Man manga is one of the most fulfilling Shonen series. Season 1 adapted the first four arcs of the 11-arc series, ending with the Katana Man arc. Chainsaw Man Season 2 is probably in production and will be covering a very crucial section of the story, diving deeper into Denji’s intrinsic needs and wants.

In this article, we will be taking a look at what might Chainsaw Man Season 2 look like and which arc of the manga will be covered in detail!

What follows after Season 1?

At the end of Chainsaw Man’s first season, Denji defeats and apprehends the Katana Man in a brutal combat. During the operation, the remaining Tokyo Special Division 4 troops acquire enough pieces of the gun devil, which when combined advance toward the devil’s position. They also arrest Akane, the lady who commands the serpent demon and the ghost devil.

So far, the anime adaptation has included up to 38 chapters of the manga. If the sequel keeps up the pace, the next three major arcs of the manga will be adapted. Fans are excited to witness the important storyline advancements in Chainsaw Man season 2 since the previous season established the tone of the drama.

The post-credit sequence from Chainsaw Man’s season 1 conclusion indicates that the next season would begin with Chapter 39 of the manga. This marks the start of the Bomb Girl Arc. The bomb devil is a strong demon who serves the Soviet Union in Reze’s hybrid form.

Chainsaw Man – The Movie: Reze Arc

While information regarding Season 2 is scarce, here’s what we have instead. We’ll get a Chainsaw Man movie. Reze Arc is scheduled to adapt the Bomb Girl chapter of Tatsuki Fujimoto’s wildly popular manga. Although Chainsaw Man – The Movie: Reze Arc was announced in December 2023, a release date has not yet been disclosed.

  • It is not yet known how much the functionality will alter the original material as of right now.
  • The Public Safety Arc, the first section of the manga, is now roughly 40% complete, albeit there may be a bit too much content for one film.

It might be possible that the Chainsaw Man movie will hurtle through the explosive Bomb Girl arc (chapters 40-52) and will set up the International Assassins arc (chapters 53-70) for future seasons, with the development of the Chainsaw Man Season 2.

Reze, the lady who made an appearance at the finale of the first season, will play a significant role in the film and will undoubtedly become close to Denji. She will first pretend like she’s romantically interested in Denji, but her true aim is to take possession of his heart aka Pochita.  As the now-merged Division 4 of Public Safety and its squad of Devil Hunters meet new allies and adversaries, the overall danger posed by Gun Devil will also be felt very strongly.

Chainsaw Man Season 2 – When can we expect it?

 

Currently, there has not been any announcement for Season 2, and Chainsaw Man – The Movie: Reze Arc is the only sequel we have coming in 2024. This is akin to how Mugen Train was released for the Demon Slayer franchise. The movie is canon and will continue the story from where it was left off. However, with how popular the show is and how its popularity will only rise with the release of the movie, Season 2 is not that far off.

The first teaser for the Chainsaw Man movie is here! Reze’s key art is included in the Reze Arc teaser, and there are also glimpses of Denji in the teaser. In the Chainsaw Man film, we anticipate Denji, Makima, Power, and Aki to make a comeback. Reze is slated to make a significant debut, and several of the English dub cast members are expected to return.

In Chainsaw Man season 2, Denji is likely to re-evaluate his ambitions. The following arcs after the movie will focus on Denji’s apparent change in perspective and his continuous battles against more devils who are here to claim him.  International politics, which will emerge as a central theme of the narrative throughout, will be highlighted in Chainsaw Man season 2.

Conclusion

We shall be graced with the arrival of the Chainsaw Man movie in 2024, most probably, which will continue the story from Season 1. Then, it might be safe to assume that we will be getting the Chainsaw Man season 2 later. Although there is no substantial information about when is season 2 of Chainsaw Man coming out, we can be hopeful that it won’t be delayed further!
