It’s time once again to become a hero for fun as Saitama, Genos and the rest of the One-Punch Man crew are back for a third TV anime season! The official website for the One-Punch Man TV anime confirmed today that a third season of the hit show is in production alongside revealing a teaser visual of Saitama and Garou drawn by season one and two character designer Chikashi Kubota.
Other than Kubota’s involvement, there’s currently no confirmation on any other returning cast and staff members, nor the studio in charge. It has also not been announced when One-Punch Man season three will be released.
One-Punch Man began as a webcomic by ONE (Mob Psycho 100) before Yusuke Murata hopped on board as artist for a new digital and print release. VIZ Media publishes the series in English and Crunchyroll streams the anime, which is described as such:
Saitama started out being a hero just for fun. After three years of “special” training, he became so powerful that he can defeat opponents with a single punch. Now, alongside Genos, his faithful cyborg disciple, Saitama is ready to begin his official duties as a professional hero working with the Hero Association.
However, the frequency of monster appearances is surging and it increasingly appears as if the Great Seer Madame Shibabawa’s prediction about the Earth’s doom is coming true. In the midst of this crisis, the “hero hunter” Garou makes his own appearance.
