'One Punch Man' Season 2 Spoilers: Weekly Shonen Jump's Illustrator Gives A Glimpse Of Garou's Looks [PHOTO]
Fans have gotten only a little information about the much-awaited One Punch Man Season 2. However, on his Twitter account, Weekly Shonen Jump's illustrator, Yusuke Murata, dropped a major spoiler about the upcoming anime series' new installment.
Yusuke Murata revealed a quick sketch of the upcoming new character in One Punch Man Season 2—Garou. Here, the Weekly Shonen Jump illustrator showed how simple this character looks like but displays it with striking design.
It was earlier reported Garou will be introduced as a new character in One Punch Man Season 2 as announced at the recent Anime Japan in Tokyo. He will be voiced by Hikaru Midorikawa, who is also behind the voices of Android 16 and Tien in Dragon Ball Z. According to Comic Book, his voice as Garou will be first heard on One-Punch Man Maji CD Drama & Song series' Volume 4 in Japan on June 20.
Although Garou is already known to be a part of the original manga series, which the anime is based on, this will be the first time he will be seen in the animated show. To recall, his name was already mentioned in the previous season's Episode 10. His shadow was also seen there. However, in One Punch Man Season 2, fans will see him in his full glory. Garou's character is described to be a hero monster who loves the monsters himself.
