One-Punch Getting Season 3?
Fans of One-Punch Man have even more to look forward to with the upcoming third season of the anime. The manga, created by Yūsuke Murata and ONE, made its debut in 2012 on Shueisha’s “Tonari no Young Jump” website. It is a remake of ONE’s original web manga of the same name. Shueisha recently published the 28th volume of the manga on June 2.
Viz Media has been releasing the series digitally in its Weekly Shonen Jump manga anthology, as well as in print format. The story follows Saitama, a superhero who defeats any opponent with just one punch, leaving him in search of a worthy adversary.
Firstly, the debut season of the anime aired in Japan from October to December 2015, gaining popularity among fans worldwide. Viz Media and Daisuki streamed the series outside of Japan, and it later premiered with an English dub on Adult Swim’s Toonami block in July 2016. Viz Media also released the first season on home video in North America.
In addition, the second season premiered in April 2019, and Viz Media acquired the master license for its distribution in North America, Latin America, and Oceania.
The upcoming third season was confirmed in the 215th chapter of the manga, and fans were treated to a teaser visual drawn by Chikashi Kubota, the character designer for the previous seasons. This announcement has generated excitement and anticipation among fans, who eagerly await the return of One-Punch Man to their screens.
