Chainsaw Man Manga Art
As shown in the trailer, the MAPPA Studio did the series justice by using an animation style similar to the manga, in the show. While some may find the art style of this series a bit too explicit, we believe no other style would have been able to portray the series as perfectly.
The show contains very graphic fighting scenes and the overall vibe is very realistic and incredibly gory. The art complements the storyline and the manga perfectly.
