Chainsaw Man Manga Ends '1st Part,' '2nd Part' to Serialize on Shonen Jump+
The second 2021 issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that Tatsuki Fujimoto's Chainsaw Man manga ended its "first part," the "Kōan" (Public Safety) arc, with the chapter in that issue. The issue added that the manga's "second part" will serialize on Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ app and website.
Weekly Shonen Jump had stated last week that the manga would end in the second issue. The manga's 10th volume will ship on January 4, and the 11th and "final" volume will ship on March 4 (the magazine did not confirm this but ostensibly the "second part" of the manga would have compiled volumes starting again from volume 1).
The second 2021 issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that Tatsuki Fujimoto's Chainsaw Man manga is getting a television anime adaptation at studio MAPPA (Jujutsu Kaisen, Dorohedoro, Attack on Titan The Final Season).
MAPPA will open a website and Twitter account for the anime on Monday. The URL for the website was registered on November 9. The previous issue of Weekly Shonen Jump had teased an "important announcement" for the manga in the second issue. The franchise will have a stage presentation at the Jump Festa '21 event on December 19-20.
A stage presentation at the Jump Festa '21 event on Saturday revealed that the second part of Tatsuki Fujimoto's Chainsaw Man manga will feature the manga's "Gakkō-hen" (School Arc) and will feature Denji going to school.
The manga ended its first part, the "Kōan" (Public Safety) arc, in Weekly Shonen Jump on Monday. The magazine also announced that the manga is getting a television anime adaptation at studio MAPPA (Jujutsu Kaisen, Dorohedoro, Attack on Titan The Final Season).
Chainsaw Man has reached a milestone in copies sold:
The editor of the wacky Chainsaw Man manga revealed on January 2 that the recently wrapped-up weekly manga series (don't worry, it'll be back!) has had 6.4 million copies sold and printed in Japan as of the release of volume 10, which came out today in Japan.
Chapter 1 just dives into it without much set up, world building, or what not. We got devils but not so much on the world system or devils themselves. We had a boy hunting devils with the mascot character because he's in debt.
This is a Shonen manga because they talked about dreams, a key aspect of shonen. I didn't expect they kill off the mascot character. Well, he merged with Denji's heart, reviving him and fulfilling a contract.
Then we meet Makima. Denji falls in love with her without realizing what she said to him. Makima treats Denji as a pet. Makes me wonder how far they go with this "kink." Reminds me of Esdeath from Akame ga Kill but more sadistic than pet play.
We get some world building later on. Here's the organization. They are hunting devils. Makima has a team. Denji and his new teammate got into a fight over convictions. Denji is a pervert but more mentally as he doesn't harass or grope. He has healthy sexual desires like most men.
In Ch 4, his new dream is touching Makima's breasts.
We meet a new character named Power. She's a fiend. She was a blood devil before becoming one. She's very bloodthirsty. Makima assigned Power to be Denji's partner. Denji has to keep an eye on her. Power makes up a story about a cat being held hostage. She ropes Denji in by letting me touch her breasts as a reward. i.imgur.com/i8DrelO.png Politic scene with Makima - We have Soviets. I didn't take a good look at the background and technology. Is this series set in the 1990's? I don't see any cell phones. I see cars.
We get a backstory of Power living in a wild and getting attached to a cat she found. This helps Denji bond with her because they both have a pet friend. i.imgur.com/UHM6YeX.png Art style is great on the action scenes. They used a lot of ink for these scenes. When you see them talking, the art is very pale most of the time. i.imgur.com/3elOAvm.png i.imgur.com/acwB0O7.png Ch. 9 was really poor. Though, I do note they have nudity, female buttocks. Denji sure loves breasts. In terms of fan service, the manga's ecchi content does have panels zooming on breasts multiple time with male gaze. However, It doesn't do full pages or half pages on emphasizing breasts. We only get small panels of zoom in shots of breasts. If I had to compare an ecchi heavy manga such as Fairy Tail or To Love Ru, Chainsaw Man's fan service pales in comparison.
By Ch 10 I uncover the core themes for now. The manga will evolve like most manga. Example would be Naruto - whose dream was to become Hokage. The core theme of "dreams" transformed into developing a sense of belonging and family while confronting war and revenge in Naruto.
Since you two appeared to love Makima, I saw this on my Twitter feed.

Old Man Dream: Well, I went ahead and already spoiled myself over later events in the series. Looks like that gets fairly messy with handling its little plot twist involving Rika, Satoko, and the mentioned story element having some assume there's some sort of...

Old Man Dream: ...Umineko crossover. May have liked the idea with better handling of the story development. But it's basically made Satoko a rather unlikable character now.

Old Man Dream: ...later titles in the Macross franchise can finally come stateside with all involved parties finally coming to a truce over how to handle things with the Macross trademark and all later anime in the franchise associated with it.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
