What Manga chapter is Chainsaw Man on?

The Chainsaw Man follows the journey of Denji, who is an underprivileged young man who makes a form of contract that makes his body the host of a dog-like evil named “Pochita” – and, in turn, grants him the ability to transform parts of his body into….what you might have guessed from the title already – Chainsaws.

Denji then goes on and joins the Public Safety Devil Hunters, which is a government agency that solely focuses on fighting against the devils when they become a threat to the country of Japan.

Season 1 Of Chainsaw Man Are Based On Which Chapters?

chanshow man anime

The first season of Chainsaw Man anime is based on chapters 1 to chapter 38 of the manga. The end of chapter 38 of the manga series Chainsaw Man falls under Volume 5 of the series. Volume 5 is titled “Minor.” There was also chapter 39 that was included in Volume 5, but that was not included in the season 1 finale of Chainsaw Man.

If you are curious about what things take place in chapter 39 of the manga, then you can surely give it a go! The events that take place in that particular chapter are not really important in the bigger picture. The events that take place in that chapter are mainly between Denji and Makima. 

Do not worry, as you will not be spoiling things ahead of season 2 if you decide to give chapter 39 of volume 5 a go.

When Will Season 2 be Released?

Season 2 of Chainsaw man is going to be released between the Fall of this year and the Fall of next year ( that is, 2024).

Some of their upcoming projects include titles like – Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku, Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2, and also everyone’s bias anime Attack On Titan: The Final Season Part 3.

Manga Or Anime – Which Is Better?

The people who have not seen any panels of the Chainsaw Man manga will be genuinely surprised to learn that the source material is what I can only say is “drastically different” than the anime. 

If a manga vs anime comparison is made, then manga wins when it comes to this title.

The Manga is way rougher when it comes to visuals. This is more evident when you see the character sketches. The faces of the characters are often represented with suspicious lines, even by the standards of Manga. 

The Manga is also very abrupt with its plot. There are a few scenes that might be omitted or added now and then. As a result of which, the manga moves at a rapid pace as compared to the anime.
