Tatsuki Fujimoto's CHAINSAW MAN Wins Best Manga At Harvey Awards

This year's Harvey Awards at NYCC saw comic industry professionals vote Tatsuki Fujimoto's Chainsaw Man manga as this year's best manga series.

The Harvey Awards were livestreamed during this year's New York Comic-Con fan event and to no one's surprise,  Tatsuki Fujimoto's Chainsaw Man took home top honors as the best manga of the year.  Fujmoto took home the award, beating out Asadora! by Naoki Urasawa, Boys Run the Riot by Keito Gaku, Remina by Junji Ito, and Spy x Family by Tatsuya Endo.

Fujimoto provided the following thank you statement, which you can read below [via ANN]:

Thank you for the insanely awesome award! It's the best award of any awards that exist in America! I consider this crude manga of mine unbefitting of any award, but I plan to continue packing it full of all the things that I love.
If you ever happen to be handing out awards again, hit me up! Thank you very much!

Chainsaw Man was serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump, beginning in December 2018. The series concluded in December 2020 at 11 volumes, however, a sequel series has been announced that will be released digitally on the online Shonen Jump+ app.

Studio MAPPA is producing a TV anime adaptation witih  Ryū Nakayama directing from a script adapted by  Hiroshi Seko.  Kazutaka Sugiyama and Kiyotaka Oshiyama are teaming up to provided character designs while  Kensuke Ushio handles the score.  While a trailer was released this past summer, there's still no official release date yet for the adaptation though most online fan circles believe the trailer is an indication that the series will drop during the Winter 2022 anime season in January. 

Denji’s a poor young man who’ll do anything for money, even hunting down devils with his pet devil-dog Pochita. He’s a simple man with simple dreams, drowning under a mountain of debt. But his sad life gets turned upside down one day when he’s betrayed by someone he trusts. Now with the power of a devil inside him, Denji’s become a whole new man—Chainsaw Man!
