The anime is an adaptation of a horror-comedy manga of the same name created by Tatsuki Fujimoto and published for the first time in 2018. With continued success, new Chainsaw Man manga chapters kept being published by Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine until 2020, when the mangaka decided it was time for a break. The series resumed serialization in 2022, and currently has 106 chapters published, compiled into 12 volumes.

With the manga’s success, it’s no surprise that Chainsaw Man received a cartoon adaptation, and its first episode was a smash hit among the anime community. Along with setting the stage for the rest of the season, the episode also raised some questions in viewers’ minds, especially regarding the Public Safety organization, and Pochita’s current vital status.

Before the anime’s first episode was released, many were already hooked by the teasers and trailers and instantly turned to the source material. After the anime’s debut interest skyrocketed, viewers impatiently began searching for answers to their questions, and desperately scoured the internet for ways to read the Chainsaw Man manga online. So how do you do it?
