One-Punch Man was released in 2015 and it instantly became a super-hit among fans all over the world. Not only otakus, but even people who didn’t watch anime loved the series. So, it was natural that everyone was awaiting for the second season of the show. And after almost 3 years of waiting, we now have a release date. One-Punch Man Season 2 is going to premiere in April 2019!
Since you landed on this page, you already know about the show and have been awaiting for its return, but if you want a quick recap about the premise then here it is! The show centers around Saitama, a normal human, who gained insane strength and stamina and became so strong that he can defeat villains with a single punch. This has made his life boring as he doesn’t get interested in fights as they are no longer fun. However, he still goes around fighting villains and being a “hero for fun”.
The show’s premise does sound stupid at first, but when you find out that it’s basically a parody of all the super-hero shows where the main character keeps getting stronger and stronger and is able to overcome all the enemies!
But, the slapstick comedy combined with insane action sequences and amazing animation has made the show grow in popularity and has become one of the top anime shows that everyone needs to watch!
Earlier we learned that Madhouse Animation Studios dropped the project, but it’s been picked up by J.C. Staff who are responsible for some of the best anime shows right now, like Food Wars for example. With a slew of comedy titles under their belt, they’ll have no troubles in making One-Punch Man shine the brightest in the comedy genre.
One-Punch Man Season 2 – The Story!
So, what exactly is the plot of the second season? I am sure that the show’s creators are going to follow the manga and pick up right where the first season ended and will show the aftermath of Lord Boros’ attack on the planet!
If you are up to speed with the manga’s story, then you might already be familiar with what to expect, and it’s going to be amazing, so I won’t spoil it for the rest who don’t read the manga.
Without getting into much of the story, I would tell that the main antagonist will be Garou, the former disciple of the S-class hero Bang. There will be a lot of familiar faces returning including Genos, the S-class heroes and the story will focus a lot on the other characters, their powers and their development.
The studio released the first look of the anime, with the announcement of the release date, and it even showed us the first look of Garou! Check it out below:

I am really excited to see how good the animation will be and since I have read the manga, I know how interesting Garou’s story is along with his motivations for becoming stronger and his character development. Also, he’s freakishly strong, so he’s a good choice to give our bald hero a good workout!
Since the release date of the second season is still months away, you can go and catch up with the latest chapters of the manga to find out everything about Garou. You can, however, wait as well as it will be really fun to see the panels get animated and all the action sequences are bound to blow your mind away!
