One Man Punch is among the most famous Japanese animated series. This action web series is written by Tomohiro Suzuki. One Man Punch is an adaptation of a manga series of the same name written by ONE. The story of this comedy series revolves around a superhero who is strong enough to defeat any powerful contender with one punch (hence the name of this series), but he remains unsatisfied because of his superiority while continuing to seek a suitable opponent. This only scratches the surface of the story’s complexity as it has many other captivating elements apart from the superhero, Saitama.
So far, two seasons of this web series have been released. Thanks to the manga comic series, One Man Punch was already famous in Japan prior to it acquiring global attention with the web series. The first season was directed by Shingo Natsume and it was an instant hit. Season 1 had been praised by the critics because of its uniqueness and versatility. Although season 2 was also good, it lacked the unique elements of season 1. Here are the latest updates about the most important details to know for the upcoming season of this series.
One Man Punch — What is the expected release date for season 3 to come out?
At this time, it is difficult to predict the release date of season 3. The creators have not officially renewed One Punch Man for season 3, nor have they announced an official release date. However, the official One Punch Man Twitter account did mention that the story does not end with season 2 which is very reassuring.
Season 2 of this action drama was released worldwide in the English language in October of 2019. Now, more than a year have passed and fans are eager to know what the development team is doing. Like many other projects in the entertainment industry, One Punch Man has greatly suffered from the coronavirus pandemic. Even with the delays, the show is expected to be out some time in 2022.
One Man Punch Season 3 — Which characters will return?
We all know that the plot of this series revolves around Saitama. So obviously, we will see Makoto Furukawa as Saitama in season 3. Apart from him, it has been leaked that the following voice actors will return as well: Kaito Ishikawa as Genos, Shota Yamamoto as Bearded Worker, Ueda Youji as Bespectacled Worker, Nobuo Tobita as Sitch, Hiromichi Tezuka as Commentator, Sawashiro Yuuichi as Mumen Rider and Yoshiaki Hasegawa as Eyelashes.
One Man Punch Season 3 — What is the upcoming storyline?
Season three will likely follow closely along the theme of the two previous seasons, with more action-packed sequences and fighting scenes. Some sources believe that Garou will be the main villain in season three. After Garou take the beast pill, he will be a deserving opponent of Saitama who will be unable to defeat Garou with just one punch. Along with Garou getting more screen time, other spoilers hint that Class heroes like Atomic Samurai, Flashy Flash, and Zombieman will also face new monster villains.
