One-Punch Man may have ended its second season earlier this year, but the series has no plans to fade away. While fans await news of a third season, the series is keeping busy as it prepares for its home video release abroad, so you know what that means. One-Punch Man is about to drop its season two OVA, and a trailer for the special has dropped online.
Over on Youtube, fans were able to get a preview of the upcoming OVA. The special, which will debut with the latest Blu-ray bundle of season two in Japan, features three new characters as they plot in the most unexpected of places.
Huddled in a public bathroom stall, the three characters make plans to show off their powers and prove their might. What they do not expect is for the strongest man in all of existence to be in the stall next to them. In a hilarious scene, Saitama can be seen walking out of his stall to the surprise of the three newcomers, and a brief conversation ensues with One-Punch Man being none the wiser.
For those interested in seeing this One-Punch Man OVA, it will go live on October 25 when the Blu-ray and DVD for season two's first volume hits shelves. Japan will be the first to nab the episode, but fans are hoping Crunchyroll is able to stream the special in real time. If not, fans will have to wait for their region's licensor to put out season two's first volume in order to watch this new OVA. There is no word on whether One-Punch Man will continue on from season two, so this special might be the last bit of animation the series churns out. However, given the story's international popularity, fans are keeping fingers crossed for a third season.
