The Japanese anime One Punch Man is all set to return with its third installment. The series, which is adapted from the comic series of the same name, has a massive fan following. The superhero manga series first came out in 2015. The show is all about the title itself. Saitama is a superhero who can lay waste to his opponents with a single punch. But, he wants to fight someone who is not easy to defeat. He desires for a worthy opponent and sets out on a quest to find one. This is the main plotline of the story.
The show turned out to be massive in Japan. And the rising viewership of anime in the West and all over the world has ensured a global fan base. The first two seasons thus turned out to be extremely popular. So, it was renewed for a third season. But further details about its release haven’t been availed.
The first season turned out to be a success both in the critical and commercial fronts. But it took two years after the release of the first season for the next one to arrive. But the gap ensured that the second season would be even better than the first. So, if the studio follows the same pattern, we should expect the third season to be here in 2020. This was planned earlier. But, later it was changed to 2021. And the recent Coronavirus pandemic has ensured that it will indeed be in 2021 at the latest.
The first two seasons had such a long gap, mainly due to two reasons. One was problems with regard to the director. This was also fostered by the change in the animation team and also of the studio. The radical change didn’t suit the series very well. Even though the show had an excellent storyline. The animation garnered criticisms. The fans weren’t much pleased with the animation works in the second season. So we expect an improvement in that case. This is because a show can cope up with the displeasure of the critics, but it can’t accept that reaction from its fans. So we can be sure that the new season will have a different plot and a much better animation. In short, One Punch Man season, three will be everything that the fans are hoping for.
