'One Punch Man' Update: Next Chapter To Be Its Longest To Date + Season 2 Details
Fans have been waiting for the next update about One Punch Man Season 2. However, the manga series illustrator, Yusuke Murata, teased its next chapter instead.
In a post on Twitter, Murata shared an update about One Punch Man's next chapter. As the Monster Association arc makes it to its climax and a huge battle between the heroes and the monsters is about to begin, this part of the story is expected to be one of the biggest chapters in the series, per Comicbook
In fact, in a tweet by Murata, he gave his followers a glimpse of One Punch Man's next chapter's progress. Here, he showed some sketches of his drawings and teased that it has already reached 147 pages. But it wouldn't end here, as he also added that it could run longer compared to its predecessors.

As the next chapter is about to feature the Hero Association's attack on Monster Association's base, then Murata needs a lot of room to work on the biggest battle the series is about to reveal. This just means that the next installment is going to be one of the most intense chapters so far.
