No one could have predicted how popular One-Punch Man would become with its first season, and the same can be said for how quickly it has fallen down the ranks. After a long hiatus, the anime returned to TV with season two under misguided efforts which left fans irate. The latest season was met with critics wherever it turned, but some held hope the OVAs planned for post-season would make up for the show's bungled animation. But as it turns out, the final OVAs of season two may have been the anime's worst episodes yet.
For those who do not know, season two of One-Punch Man promised to dole out six OVAs after it ended. The first went live in October 2019 before the rest wrapped in Japan by this March. Now, those OVAs are being discovered by overseas fans ahead of an official dub, and they are less than thrilled.
You can check out the reactions below if you can stand a swear or two. Fans aren't happy with these new OVAs in the least, and it shows. Not only has the animation stagnated but the pacing makes little sense. While these stories were made under ONE's supervision, their adaptation in the anime isn't garnering any fans.
So far, there is no word on whether these OVAs will be brought outside of Japan, but fans admit they're fine with that. You can buy One-Punch Man season two in Japan now but there is no release date for a Blu-ray or DVD in the U.S. yet. Viz Media will be heading up any home media deals, so fans will hopefully hear something about Saitama soon!
