Chainsawman has made it a few episodes into the anime adaptation’s debut run, and some special new cover art has been released to celebrate Aki Hayakawa’s time in the series so far! Anticipation for the anime adaptation of Tatsuki Fujimoto’s manga series was through the roof thanks to how hugely popular the manga had become in the two years since the first installment ended. Fans were excited to see how its central characters like Denji would come to life in full motion, and the team behind the anime has impressed fans so far.
Many fans have been particularly impressed by Aki’s role in it all. The episodes were first introduced to the series as a more serious, stern wall for Denji and Power’s antics to bounce off of, and so far the episodes have begun to reveal more of his hidden layers more and more. This will continue throughout the series as he will likely continue to be a huge fan favorite in the anime and to help this along will be covering the upcoming issue of the women’s lifestyle magazine, Anan. Showcasing a cool new look for Aki, check out the cover below:
