Before the official premiere of One-Punch Man Season 2, there was quite a bit of debate among fans as the first trailer for the season completely underwhelmed. Fans were worried that the series would have rough animation direction, and feared that it would never reach the same heights as the first season. But now that the third episode has premiered, it seems fans are warming up to it.
Fans are stating that the third episode of the series is the best one yet. While they admit it still has a few issues in terms of direction, there is indeed a notable improvement as the human monster Garou has jumped into action fully.
It helps that so much happens in Episode 3 of the series as it sets up the rest of the season. Now that Garou has faced off against some pro-heroes, and has even taken a notable loss, fans can't wait to see what's to come next for the rest of the season.
Read on to find out what fans are saying about Episode 3 of the series, and let us know your thoughts in the comments or talk to me on Twitter @Valdezology!
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 second season will reportedly run for 12 episodes, and Viz Media has licensed the season for an English release.
They describe One-Punch Man Season 2 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."
Okay, OPM Season 2 Episode 3 so far has pretty decent animation for its fight scenes- seems like a good improvement from the first two episodes.— ☆オードリーAudrey☆ (@aitaikimochi) April 23, 2019
