The news about a third season of the popular Japanese anime One Punch Man was announced this week. One-Punch Man (ワンパンマン) is a Japanese superhero manga series created by One. It tells the story of Saitama, a superhero who, because he can defeat any opponent with a single punch, grows bored from a lack of challenge. One wrote the original web-comic manga version in early 2009.
An anime adaptation produced by Madhouse was broadcast in Japan from October to December 2015. A second season, produced by J.C. Staff, was broadcast from April to July 2019. Details about the 3rd season have not been given yet.
A visual teaser for the 3rd season is below:
Here’s the Twitter announcement:
3 long years have passed since Season 2 was shown – and it was not well received by critics. However, no one can discount the awesomeness of the first season – the visuals, the storyline, the character development, the fight scenes (most definitely!), and everything else.
IGN further adds:
One Punch Man’s upcoming third season is being developed alongside a live-action film adaptation, which will be written by Venom’s Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinker, with former Fast X director Justin Lin slated to direct. This movie joins several other live-action anime adaptations, including a Netflix series based on One Piece, the perpetually troubled Akira remake, and a reimagined version of Your Name.One-Punch Man Season 3 Announced

An old-timer BL fan way back in 2007. I started out loving BL after watching the Takumi-kun series from Japan, went on collecting BL manga, and watched old BL anime such as Junjou Romantica and the likes. Love of Siam allow me to transition into Thai, while Amphetamine gave me glimpses of Taiwanese BL magic. I love to write reviews and I’m one of the administrators of Psycho Weird.
