'One Punch Man' Season 2 Release Date, News & Update: Two Big Announcements About Show's Return Revealed
It has been almost two years since fans last saw Saitama on the small screen. Now, it looks like fans have a reason to celebrate as One Punch Man Season 2 may return really soon. In fact, there were two big announcements about the series made at the recent Anime Japan in Tokyo.
The first big reveal is about Garou's coming to One Punch Man Season 2. The former disciple of Bang will join the cast and will be voiced by Hikaru Hidorikawa. Garou made a cameo role in the previous season's Episode 10, although it was just a silhouette and a mention of his name.
The second big reveal is that there will be a One Punch Man anime event, called One Punch Man Maji Gakuensai. The affair will be held on August 12, and fans are expecting that One Punch Man Season 2's first trailer will be unveiled at the event, Geeky Tyrant reported.
According to Comic Book, it is known that anime events like this usually show what the next step a show would be taking. Aside from a teaser, viewers are hoping to know when will One Punch Man Season 2's official release date would be.
This is not the first time that little details about One Punch Man Season 2 have emerged. To recall, when the series' character designer, Chikashi Kubota, appeared at a convention, he jokingly talked about the show.
A fan asked about Kubota's projects, and he revealed something about FLCL 2 and One Punch Man Season 2's trailers. He said that FLCL 2 trailer would be out soon while fans are about to see a glimpse of Saitama's return before Evangelion Final.
However, some fans strongly believed that Kubota was just making fun of them. But, with the new revelations today, it looks like One Punch Man Season 2's trailer is about to drop soon. In fact, there are reports that the second installment is now in the works. Thus it is not far that teaser will be released in August.
For those unfamiliar, One Punch Man tells the story of the average hero, Saitama. He is also known as the most powerful hero alive as he manages to win all of his fights with just one punch. However, things get frustrating eventually as he is no longer feels the thrill and adrenaline that he used to experience in battles.
