However, as you will find on social media, it doesn’t seem like netizens are too thrilled with the end result.
This month, fans saw One-Punch Man season two take to the small screen under a new studio and creative team. J.C. Staff led the charge for Saitama, but its pre-production was marred by rumors of inadequate scheduling and mismanaged talent. Now, the show has gone live, and fans cannot help but wonder if those reports were true.
As you can see below, a slew of reactions to One-Punch Man season two have hit social media, and few of them are friendly. Most returning fans to the franchise are bemoaning the anime’s lacking animation. While the show delivers with key frames, its static and sometimes nonexistent movement has got fans all riled up. Even new fans admit there is something off about the new season’s pacing, and that is just some of the complaints out there. For now, it seems One-Punch Man season one is the anime’s most definitive entry, so anyone curious about the franchise should hit up that episode run before jumping to season two.
One-Punch Man Season 2 is now streaming on Hulu, and on Crunchyroll outside of the United States. The season is directed by Chikara Sakurai (Naruto Shippuden episode director), for new production studio J.C. Staff. Yoshikazu Iwanami serves as sound director, and Chikashi Kubota contributes new character designs.
The new season is described as such, "Saitama is a hero who only became a hero for fun. After three years of “special training,” he’s become so strong that he’s practically invincible. In fact, he’s too strong—even his mightiest opponents are taken out with a single punch. Now, the great seer Madame Shibabawa’s prediction about the Earth being doomed seems to be coming true as the frequency of monster incidents escalates. Alongside Genos, his faithful disciple, Saitama begins his official hero duties as a member of the Hero Association, while Garou, a man utterly fascinated by monsters, makes his appearance."
