UPDATE: The wait to know the Chainsaw Man anime release date and see trailer 2 continues.
Today, MAPPA and Crunchyroll hosted a panel on the last day of Anime Expo where it was hoped that a trailer 2 and release date announcement would arrive.
However, sadly, that wasn’t the case – but Crunchyroll and MAPPA have teased fans to stay tuned for more news to come in August.
This is according to the Anime Trending Twitter account who tweeted what happened during the panel.
The account posted: “Additional details will be shared soon and stay tuned for Crunchyroll Expo 2022, scheduled for August 5-7 in San Jose. #CRpanel”
ORIGINAL: Chainsaw Man is one of the most anticipated anime of 2022, but so far this year, news about the next must-watch adaptation has been thin on the ground.
In fact, it’s been a year to the day since the first Chainsaw Man trailer was revealed, and since then there haven’t been any new images.
However, that could all be about to change soon with Crunchyroll and MAPPA hosting a Chainsaw Man panel at the highly publicized Anime Expo 2022 in Los Angeles.
This panel is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Pacific / 2:30 p.m. Eastern / 7:30 p.m. BST on Monday, July 4, 2022.
The Chainsaw Man panel is scheduled for the final day of Anime Expo, which could be a sign that MAPPA and Crunchyroll are looking to deliver some big news to end the event in style.
It wouldn’t be surprising to see the Chainsaw Man 2 trailer revealed during this event, along with the official confirmation of the anime’s release date.
Earlier this year, Crunchyroll confirmed that they have reached an agreement to stream the Chainsaw Man anime this year.
But we are already in the second half of the year and so far we have not known exactly when the first episode will air.
There are rumors that the Chainsaw Man anime could have an October release date, and with that window just a few months away, time is running out for an official release date reveal.
While it’s possible we could get a release date reveal and new trailer for Chainsaw Man at Anime Expo 2022, that’s by no means a given.
Details on exactly what will be revealed during the Chainsaw Man panel at Anime Expo are scarce, and one of the few things that has been confirmed is the host.
In attendance will be Crunchyroll News Editor Kyle Cardine, who will moderate the panel.
Ahead of the Chainsaw Man event, Cardine asked her Twitter followers to send in their questions for the panel.
Cardine posted: “Chainsaw Man fans! For the upcoming Chainsaw Man panel at Anime Expo, we’re collecting questions from YOU to ask the MAPPA production team about the upcoming anime! Use the hashtag #ChainsawManAX to submit your questions.
“See you on July 4 at 11:30 a.m. PT in the main event room!”
