To be fair that’s not Mappa’s fault, that’s something you gotta take up with the manga.I do not know anything about Chainsawman. Heard it was getting an anime. That is it.
But based on what you two have said about it..... I will check it out.
Yes, MAPPA is doing Chainsawman. I'm also worried. Mainly cause it seems like they are spreading themselves too thin by doing a bunch of projects all at once/back to back.
Juju Kaisen was alright. But that is about it.
It went downhill for me after episode 13. Mainly due to the pacing being weird by introducing a metric fuck ton of side characters and then throwing all their back stories at you.
Really fucked with the action sequences in jarring way.
Like @Tism the Return said, it feels like a diet Hunter x Hunter at this point.
To me, JJK is just a refinement of the Shonen formula for the modern age, where they take variations on the same tropes and apply them to a much more tightly plotted story with a clearly projected “end” that isn’t some ambiguous super-long-term goal.
Even a relatively long-running series like MHA has a very near-term end-goal that we literally KNOW will happen, because the whole series is framed as adult Deku telling the story of his path to becoming the #1 hero. And while I’m not a massive fan of MHA either, I’d much rather read/watch it over older Shonen like Naruto or Bleach because it’s at least clear that the author has most of the narrative planned out beforehand and isn’t just making the story up as he goes.
