If you’ve been eagerly waiting for One Punch Man season 2, then you’d already know that it’s been confirmed and will premiere in April 2019. In this article, we are going to talk about the very first episode and what to expect from it!
Earlier there were rumors that the One Punch Man season 2 episode 1 was going to be released in August 2018; but as we all know, that turned out to be a fake news and nothing was aired. So, we can safely assume that the second season of the show is going to air in April 2019 and will continue with the following episodes on a weekly basis.
If you’ve been a fan of the show like me and many others, then you’d have picked up the manga as soon as the first season ended to keep reading the adventures of Caped Baldy and friends. This means that you already know what to expect from the upcoming season, as it’s more than likely that the anime will remain true to the story. But, if you ignored the compulsion of picking up the manga and waited for the anime to come out, then you’re in for a treat! So, let’s have a look at what you can expect from the upcoming season!
Spoiler Alert: The below article contains spoilers for not only the first episode, but probably the entire season. So, stop reading if you don’t want the story to be spoiled!
One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 1 – Spoilers
The first season of the show ended with the epic battle of Saitama against Lord Boros, and the first episode of the second season is going to pick up right from that point only.
However, don’t expect to see any action in the very first episode as it’s likely going to be a recap episode or something like that. It will show us the aftermath of the world-threatening battle and how the government is dealing with it. Moreover, it will also focus on what Saitama, Genos and Bang are up to after the battle.
Once that’s done, the story is going to pick up and a lot of awesome things are going to be revealed. I already posted a spoiler alert, but I don’t want to spoil the story a lot. So, I’ll keep this short and simple, without revealing too much.
The second season of the show is going to reveal a lot about the S-class heroes and their background, and the story and background of one hero in particular is going to be epic. Moreover, he’s going to join the gang of Saitama for the rest of the season. Manga readers already know which hero I’m talking about; but if you are an anime-person, then wait a little bit more and it will be really exciting to see it first hand.
Moreover, the first episode of One Punch Man season 2 will likely feature the main villain, Garou, as well. It’s going to be an introduction of his character, so don’t expect a lot of details in the very first episode. Just expect the “Hero Hunter Arc” to begin from the end of the first episode, or the second episode.
In the manga, Garou was Bang or Silver Fang’s former disciple who eventually lost his way. What is particularly interesting is that Garou and Saitama are two sides of the same coin – just people who happen to go far beyond what humans are capable of becoming. This would make him one of the strongest nemesis Caped Baldy would ever face!
One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 1 – Release Date:
The official confirmation of the season 2 premiere was made on VIZ Media’s official Twitter handle, but no other information was shared apart from the teaser showcasing Saitama, Genos and Garou. The exact release date isn’t revealed either, but we do know one thing for sure – the episode 1 on the second season will air in April 2019, hopefully in the first week itself!
We’ll update the article as soon as we get an exact premiere date, so stay tuned with us as we share more information on One Punch Man Season 2!
