One Punch Man Season Two Confirmed

Saitama will be back in action soon.


Hit anime One Punch Man will receive a second season, it has been announced. The first season ended in December 2015 and--given how overwhelmingly popular it was--fans expected a follow-up would be announced very quickly.

Animation studio MadHouse left fans hanging for eight months, but the second season was confirmed on Twitter on September 25. As of yet, there are no further details on when the show will return or what the new arc will entail.

One Punch Man started as a web comic created by an author that works under the pseudonym ONE. It follows Saitama, a superhero that has become so powerful that he can defeat all villains with a single punch. Over the course of the season one, Saitama takes on monsters of various sizes to climb up the hero ranking.

Following the success of One Punch Man, ONE had another of his creations--Mob Psycho 100--adapted for anime. Like One Punch Man, it stars an unassuming main character that has incredible powers--in this case it's psychic ability.
