Just after the release of two episodes, a rumour started floating around social media sites. This rumour is about a popular anime called “chainsaw man” getting banned in America. However, like most of the times, this rumour seems to have no substance and is apparently a false one.
How the rumour started?
When the second episode dropped on October 18, the rumours about the ban of “Chainsaw Man” began to circulate. Fans took to Twitter and shared the news. Among those tweets, one tweet read, “So I heard Chainsaw Man is getting banned from the US”.
These rumours were then backed by one user in the replies who referred an article from CBR. In that article, CBR talked about the tweet made by US Consumer Product Safety Commission. In that tweet, the commission commented about Chainsaw Man.
However, one Twitter user rightfully pointed that the context of the said tweet was interpreted in a different way. Some users also said that the commission was just making a funny comment. Other people, however, told that the ban might be because of its gory storyline.
But, no official announcement from the trusted sources came about the ban of the anime from US. So, the rumours are completely false.
What was the tweet by US Consumer Product Safety Commission ?
After the anime’s release, the commission thought it would be a good idea to use this fame to tell everyone about chainsaw safety tips. The Twitter thread was of ten parts which started with, “Man made of chainsaws. Hmm”.
This tweet was followed by, “There’s a chainsaw dog?” and “Seems like this calls for some chainsaw safety tips. Note: If you yourself are a chainsaw, tips may not apply”. The government agency then followed up the rest of tweets by jokingly advising the safety tips.
What is “Chainsaw Man” all about ?
“Chainsaw man” is a new anime that is slowly gaining popularity due to its unique storytelling and amazing cinematic shots. It is produced by studio MAPPA which is famous for producing another popular anime like Attack on Titan season 4, Jujutsu Kaisen, etc. The first episode was released in October 12.
The anime was adapted from the famously manga by the same name. Tatsuki Fujimoto was the mangaka behind this amazing story who is also popular for writing “Fire Punch”.
The story revolves around a poor young boy named Denji. However, one day he gets killed and is saved by his demon chainsaw dog Pochita. This happens as a result of the dog making a contract with him thereby turning him into Chainsaw man.
