There are a lot of manga recently that are getting anime adaptation and among the few that I wanted to see being adapted was Sakamoto Days and Dandadan. There have been rumors about both of the said titles that they have been in production and it is finally here that one of them has gotten a teaser for the upcoming anime.
This upcoming title is critically acclaimed and weird going above and beyond a normal Shonen Jump manga, Danadan. The teaser for Danadan was only released a few days ago and the fans are already in shock at how good the anime looks in the teaser some have already gone up to compare it to the other popular title of the Shonen Jump manga, Chainsaw Man.
While Chainsaw Man is as groovy and weird as Dandadan a group of fans were not as impressed by the anime as they had hoped to be and it is due to its animation and the color palette that Mappa had used for the anime.
Could this be true? Well, we are here to provide you with some comments from social media about this upcoming anime adaptation and why exactly the fans think that it is going to be better than the Chainsaw Man anime adaptation.
Why Do Fans Believe Dandadan is a better anime adaptation than Chainsaw Man already?
The teaser for Dandadan anime was released on November 27 and saw some promising scenarios and the fans of the series were hooked that this anime adaptation is going to be a serious project and not some mediocre anime adaptation.
One of the main premises on the internet about Dandadan’s teaser was how the fans started to compare it to Chainsaw Man anime adaptation by manga. This comparison sees Dandadan anime already being better than Chainsaw in its aesthetic and visualization.
Here is what the fans on Twitter have to say about them:
The Dandadan anime's aesthetic is the perfect example of how Chainsaw Man should have looked rather than that MCU tier color design it had

In the above tweet, @DetectiveAry talks about how the Dandadan anime has a better color palette and how the Chainsaw Man anime should have looked. They went as far as to say that the latter anime had an “MCU tier color design” indicating that it was very orange.
This Twitter thread encouraged a few other fans to come out and share their opinion on it and other Twitter users said that they have always hated the color pallet of Chainsaw Man with a passion adding that it was souless. Another Twitter user seems to agree with this take.
I fucking hate CSM colour palette with a passion. Absolutely soulless.

While this comparison is only based on a few seconds of a trailer and a whole season of anime, I can see how fans may have been disappointed by the anime adaptation of Chainsaw Man especially the fans that have read the manga.
Nevertheless, Chainsaw Man anime is one of the best animes from 2022, and while the color pallet may not have been liked by a few fans, other groups of fans have loved the series so far. Twitter users have defended Chainsaw Man anime that Mappa used the perfect color pallet for the anime that featured Souless color because the anime itself is depressing and the color pallet fits with the tone.
We would love to hear some of your thoughts about this opinion in the comments.
What is Dandadan About?
The upcoming Dandadan anime is part of the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine written and illustrated by Yukinobu Tatsu which first began its serialization in April 2021 and has collected over 11 volumes and the manga is still going strong.
The plot of the series follows two high school students Momo Ayase and Okarun who have their own weird beliefs. The former thinks that ghosts exist while the latter thinks that Aliens exist. They go on an adventure to prove each other wrong but are surprised to see how they are both correct and what follows for them is weird encounters with paranormal activities that will turn their normal lives upside down.
The anime is being adapted by Science Saru with a passion for the anime as we can see from the trailer and the anime is scheduled to be released in 2024 but the exact release date has yet to be revealed.
