What’s Going to Happen at the Chainsaw Man Panel?

Anime Expo’s listing simply describes the Chainsaw Man panel this way: “Join the upcoming anime Chainsaw Man producers’ panel!” The event is hosted by Crunchyroll and MAPPA. So they’re pretty sparse on providing any details on what to expect.

Bleeding Cool notes that the panelists are “TBD.” We only know that the host is going to be Crunchyroll’s Managing Editor, Kyle Cardine. 

Crunchyroll put out a call to fans before the exp0, sharing that they are gathering questions from fans to ask MAPPA during the panel. 

Many people think we’ll get another trailer for Chainsaw Man at the panel, perhaps news about the voice cast, and maybe even a premiere date. I’m certainly hoping for all of these! 

Live Updates & Who to Follow

There was no surefire way to watch the Chainsaw Man panel live online if you can’t attend in person. We did put together a list of people/sites to follow, where you’ll either get video clips of the panel or at the very least hear news as soon as it breaks. We’re also updating this story with live updates from the panel below. 

The Twitter account QuadLuck_ is attending live and wrote: “They stated if anyone is caught recording they will stop the event immediately and cancel it.”

A Chainsaw Man account on Twitter just shared a video below.

You should also keep an eye on the hashtag #ChainsawManAX on Twitter. This was the hashtag used by Crunchyroll when taking questions for the panel, and will likely be the hashtag used for any big announcements or videos on July 4. But be cautious – there will likely be manga spoilers on that hashtag too! 

(On a side note: Anime Expo Lite is a digital version of the Anime Expo that lets you experience some events virtually, but not all of them. The digital schedule is online, and it appears to not be showing Chainsaw Man live, unfortunately.]

The Twitter account @Daoxingames is also providing updates. See their tweet below.  

Check out the size of the Chainsaw Man panel in the tweet above!

So far, they’ve played the old teaser trailer, Quad tweeted, and the CEO of MAPPA is attending the panel. They might also play another trailer at the end of the panel. The host of the panel is dressed up as Denji, Quad shared. 

MAPPA has been interested in making Chainsaw Man into an anime ever since the manga first released, Quad shared. The CEO of MAPPA is also a huge fan of the manga and wanted to create an anime that l0yal fans will love.

The producer also noted: “We want to make sure everything is hard core, no soft stuff!”

The producer also said they’re working closely with Fujimoto. “We want this to be a representation of the original even down to the casting of the voicr actors.” 

Some people have been worried about censorship, but the producer assured the panel that he wants to maintain the rawness of the manga and the realness of the images. 

Quad also shared that the CEO’s favorite character is Power, and the producer’s favorite is Denji. 

Unfortunately, a new trailer was not revealed at the panel. Apparently more news is going to be released at the Crunchyroll Expo.
