Chainsaw Man has struck a chord with fans with just how violent and intense it could be at times, and the staff behind the upcoming anime promise the adaptation won’t censor anything. Tatsuki Fujimoto’s original manga series wrapped up its first run with Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine a while ago, and it’s now in a more popular place than ever as fans have continued to flock to the series thanks to others recommending the story for its brutal and outlandish moments. . There’s so much wild happening that fans even feared an anime adaptation would tone it down in some ways.
Taking the stage at this year’s Anime Expo for a special panel (which ComicBook.com attended), MAPPA CEO Manabu Otsuka, MAPPA CEO, and MAPPA Executive Director and General Manager Makoto Kimura talked about the upcoming anime now in the works and revealed that they have no plans to censor any bloody or gory moments in the manga. In fact, they strive to have an adaptation as faithful to the original series as possible. That’s why it takes so long because they want to nail it perfectly.
When Kimura was asked about which anime might adapt the show’s violence, Kimura explained that they wouldn’t do any kind of censorship to tone it down. This includes either blurring or cross-hatching or other techniques as they want to stay as close to the manga material as possible. When it comes to how the anime will handle the manga’s wild pace, the staff also revealed that they are considering which chapters fit, which moments need more time to develop, and many other nuances on a case-by-case basis. smaller. punctuate the series as a whole.
