Will the Manga Be Adapted?
Chainsaw Man’s anime is more or less faithful to the manga when it comes to character design, story, and other elements. As such, the anime is unlikely to deviate into original story territory and the manga will likely continue being adapted as long as it’s ongoing and has an audience.
There may be delays between seasons to ensure quality, but the adaptations are most likely to continue. Still, keep in mind that all of this is merely speculation and is subject to change as we receive official information.
What is Chainsaw Man About?
In a world with humans and devils, Chainsaw Man’s protagonist Denji hunts devils using his devil dog Pochita as a chainsaw. But when the Yakuza become zombies and attack him, Pochita fuses with Denji to give rise to the devil-human hybrid Chainsaw Man.
Denji is then recruited by Makima to join the Public Safety Division of governmental devil hunters. The whole thing revolves around killing the Gun devil, but as more details come to light, it’s clear things aren’t quite as they seem.
