This comes only days after the series announced that One Punch Man will have a new production company and director. The second season will now be completed by J.C Staff Production, with Chikara Sakurai being put in charge. The first season of Saitama’s story was originally directed by Shingo Natsume, with Madhouse being the production company.
Despite the change of production companies, One Punch Man will still be designed by Chikashi Kubota, while Tomohiro Suzuki will do the composition for the season. Meanwhile, the cast for the series will remain the same, with One Punch Man’s vocal talent returning for season 2.
However, at this point in time, One Punch Man fans have still been left in the dark about the second installment of the franchise, with the change of production company’s only increasing delays. However, now that the change has been finalized, the new production team can begin to work on the sires’ highly anticipated second season.
If you are unfamiliar with the One Punch Man series, then you have plenty of time to catch up with the manga or the animated series, which you can stream on Crunchyroll. In addition, you can check out One-Punch Man’s synopsis from Viz Media below:
“Nothing about Saitama passes the eyeball test when it comes to superheroes, from his lifeless expression to his bald head to his unimpressive physique. However, this average-looking guy has a not-so-average problem—he just can’t seem to find an opponent strong enough to take on!”
