Tatsuki Fujimoto’s Chainsaw Man Part 2 is an original manga series and gets a projected release schedule by the creator. Chainsaw Man is not receiving an anime adaptation until next year (at least according to current sources), but even without one, the manga has slowly grown its fanbase from a cult following to the vast readership it has today. It was entirely due to the popularity of the manga releases, and fans were astonished to learn that Fujimoto had planned to stop the series’ further release in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine just as things were heating up.
Part 2 Confirmation of Chainsaw Man
Following the publication of chapter 97 on December 14, 2020, it was officially announced that the Chainsaw Man manga would come back.
As per hitc.com, the story will have a “second part” in the second issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, which will be a straight extension from chapter 97.
Denji will now attend school and strive to reconcile his fresh start with his responsibilities as Chainsaw Man, according to the manga.
Release Date for Chainsaw Man: Part 2
A launch date for Part 2 of Chainsaw Man has been purportedly planned for 2022, although no particular launch window has been announced till now. The Weekly Shonen Jump announced from the Twitter feed on December 3 that both the anime and the manga adaptation will be released in 2022.
However, neither the series’ author nor licensed distributors added a specific month or date to the ‘WSJ manga’ statement. According to early estimates, fans should not anticipate the manga series to resume until the second quarter of 2022.
However, in March 2022, the franchise is likely to celebrate its debut release’s third anniversary, so additional information will be released then. As with the manga’s debut edition, Chainsaw Man ‘Part 2’ will also be broadcast on the Shone Jump+ website and app for followers all over the globe.

In some other sense, this artwork is a teaser, but it does not disclose anything. There is not much information in the text either. The preview depicts that Denji is holding the Control Demon that was birthed during the fight with Makima.

What Will Occur in Part 2 of Chainsaw Man?
At this time, the storyline of the second installment of Chainsaw Man is unknown. We know it will continue where the first Part ended, with Denji returning to school and balancing his new life with his position as Chainsaw Man. The story is set in a universe where demons are created as a result of human anxieties. Demons are often deadly and evil. On the other hand, humans may form agreements with them to utilize their abilities.
Demon hunters are those who are involved in hunting and hiring demons. Demons are created in Hell and have a perpetual life cycle between Earth and Hell, in which they are destroyed in Hell and resurrected on Earth, and vice versa. Primal Fears are extremely strong demons and have never been slain. The Devil of Hell controls the transit between Hell and Earth. Under rare circumstances, a demon might possess the body of a deceased human being, gaining Part of his memories and persona; this entity is known as a Demon. Demons with a human-like appearance are thought to be benign toward humans.
The plot was set in 1997. Denji is a young guy who is enslaved by poverty. With the aid of Pochita, the chainsaw demon, he serves as a demon hunter to repay off his late father’s yakuza obligation. The yakuza betrays Denji and murders him for forging a bargain with the zombie monster. Pochita forms a bargain with Denji, merging with him and resurrecting him as a human-demon hybrid. Denji is approached by a squad of government demon hunters led by Makima, who persuades him to follow in their footsteps after eliminating the Yakuza. Denji agrees and collaborates with the blood demon Power.
The Katana Man, an angry yakuza who looks to be associated with the Weapon Demon, is encountered by Denji’s squad. The Division conducts an attack against Sawatari and Katana Man. Denji has a romance with a girl called Reze; she is a Bomb Woman and a hybrid spy dispatched to catch him by the Soviet Union. She assaults the city, and Division barely rescues Denji. Denji battles with her after healing and accepts the invitation to leave Japan jointly. Makima covertly kidnaps her before they can meet again. Denji’s battle with the bombshell lady makes his presence known to the rest of the world. The Division discovers that four groups of assassins are hunting Denji.
A security team accompanies Denji. Despite the brothers’ defeat and Quanxi’s first retreat, Santa Claus utilizes his demon puppet abilities to mount a large horde assault. Santa starts a bargain with the Devil of Darkness to give her more power, and Makima saves the gang from Hell. Denji is assisted by Quanxi, who reveals out to be a hybrid. After Denji has recovered, Makima discloses that the Weapon Demon is a geopolitical treasure that various groups control. Denji is ambushed by the Gun Demon, who he kills with the aid of civilians. Makima kills Power, revealing that he is blaming for Denji’s misfortunes since he planned to terminate his contract with Pochita by shattering his aspirations of a normal life.
Pochita takes control of Denji’s body and assaults him in his natural form. Makima outlines his objectives to utilize Pochita’s power to erase conceptions from reality by devouring their respective demons to establish a world free of fear and pain. Additionally, her government has given her immortality for this purpose. Denji’s actions destabilize Pochita, so she defeats the Chainsaw Man with the hypnotized hybrids.
