About Attack on Titan:
The anime series Attack on Titan, which debuted in September 2013, is based on the popular Japanese manga of the same name. The events of the manga series, which were written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama, take place in a world in which humanity lives contained within cities that are surrounded by three extremely large walls. They are protected from huge man-eating humanoids known as "Titans" by the walls that surround them. The protagonist of the story is Eren Yeager, who, after seeing the destruction of his hometown and the death of his mother, makes a solemn promise to eradicate the Titans from the world.
The fifth and final season of Attack on Titan was scheduled to premiere in Japan in December 2020, but it was cancelled on March 29 of this year (2022). WIT STUDIO was responsible for the animation of the first three seasons of the successful anime series, while MAPPA was responsible for the animation of the fourth and final season of the series.
About Chainsaw Man:
Chainsaw Man takes place in a world where people's fears turn into Devils. Devils are usually evil and dangerous, and their power grows with how much fear they cause. But humans can make deals with them to use their power, and there are people called Devil Hunters whose job it is to find and hire them. Devils come from Hell and live in a cycle between Earth and Hell. When they die in Hell, they move to Earth, and when they die on Earth, they move to Hell. Primal Fears, which are very powerful Devils that have never been killed, live in Hell. The Hell Devils seems to be in charge of how people move between the two planes.
A Fiend is a Devil that has taken over the body of a dead person and taken on some of their memories and personality, this may happen in certain situations. People say that devils who naturally look like humans are kind to humans.
The story takes place in 1997 in an alternate timeline where the Soviet Union is still around and many important events, like the Holocaust, have been forgotten. There used to be nuclear weapons in this world, but they are no longer around because the Chainsaw Devil ate the Nuclear Weapons Devil. Also, there hasn't been a war since the World War because the War Devil has been weakened so much that the only reminders of war are in the media and pop culture.
