    Have You Not Started "Chainsaw Man" Yet? Well Here Are 4 Reasons Why You Should, Especially If You're A Horror Fan

    This show is a bloody good time, emphasis on the bloody.

    For all my fellow weebs out there, we know there is a massive amount of options when it comes to selecting an anime to watch. It feels like you will get an endless list from other weebs on why you should watch this shonen or slice-of-life series. So I apologize now for adding to that list but, YOU MUST WATCH Chainsaw Man!!

    The horror genre isn't new in anime, though this one seems to be a more mature Jujutsu Kaisen, so if you love that show and the horror elements that make it dark and fantastic, then you should be watching Chainsaw Man. Here are a few more reasons why this show is a must-watch.

    1. The Story

    Aki unsheathing his katana in battle
    Power clinching her fist scowling down at something

    3. This thing gets bloody, and I mean REALLY BLOODY!!

    MAPPA is yet again delivering another beautifully animated series. If you don't know their name, I guarantee you know their work as they have put their stamp on some of the most popular shows in anime so far. It makes sense why they would be approached to take on Chainsaw Man having done Jujutsu Kaisen, Attack on Titan, and Dororo, which all have dark themes and have captivating fights and visuals. 

    Though we have yet to see the scale on which MAPPA will be delivering on with this show, the true test will be whenever the first real big battle happens. This show in particular gives them more room to be as visceral as they want to be, considering the theme of the show and the havoc that I'm sure the story will be leading us into. Not sure if the animation is to your liking well check out the trailer above and see just how good MAPPA is as an animation studio.
