The third season of One-Punch Man is currently under production
The official website for the One-Punch Man anime has revealed that the show will continue with a third season, which is presently in the process of being produced. Along with the announcement, a poster for the upcoming season was also presented: A graphical artwork that was produced by Chikashi Kubota, who is the character designer, and it depicts Saitama and Garou.
But as of right now, no other information has been disclosed, which means that we will have to wait a little while longer to learn about the cast members, the storyline, and the studio that will be participating. Studio Madhouse was responsible for the animation of the first season, whereas J.C. Staff was responsible for the animation of the second season, which did not receive positive reviews from audiences. It has now come to light that the producers are reportedly seeking for another studio to take over production duties for the subsequent season.
The story of One-Punch Man follows the exploits of an unbeatable superhero
According to Crunchyroll, the official synopsis of the anime goes as follows: “Saitama began his career as a hero simply for pleasure. After three years of “special” training, he reached a level of strength that allowed him to destroy opponents with a single punch each time. Now, with Genos by his side, Saitama is prepared to start his official duties as a professional hero working with the Hero Association.
“However, the frequency of monster appearances is on the rise, and it is becoming more and more apparent that the Great Seer Madame Shibabawa’s forecast about the end of the world is coming true. The narrative goes on to say that within the midst of this crisis, the “hero hunter” Garou makes his own appearance.
The web book written in 2009 by Japanese artist ONE served as the inspiration for both the manga and the anime, both of which were adapted from it. The web book became extremely popular very quickly, and Yusuke Murata was commissioned to provide the drawings for the manga version, which was published in 2012. The book series was an enormous success, garnering more than 30 million sales all around the world.
It was revealed in March 2015 that the manga would be adapted into an anime series due to its success. The show made its debut in October 2015, and the first season consisted of a total of 12 episodes. The eagerly anticipated second season began airing in April of 2019 and continued until July of the same year.
Production has begun on a live-action version of One-Punch Man
Fans of One-Punch Man have even more reasons to celebrate, as not only is there going to be a new season, but there is also going to be a live-action feature based on the manga. Following their purchase of the character rights from Shueisha, Sony Pictures is making the film.
The screenplay for the movie is currently being written by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinker, both of whom have previously contributed to the writing of Jumanji: The Next Level. Justin Lin, who is most known for directing the Fast and Furious film franchise, has been recruited to helm this endeavor as the director.
Arad Productions, which is well known for producing the Spider-Man film series, the X-Men film series, Iron Man, and Venom, is the company that is producing the picture. Avi Arad and Ari Arad are the producers of the film.
