The webtoon releases irregularly but the manga has a steady monthly release in Shueisha’s Digital Shonen Jump. Both the physical and digital volumes of this manga have seen immense success.
Season 1 was incredibly successful. Season 2 was below par but a lot of people watched it due to its pre-existing clout. It had many interesting revelations are fans are very excited for One Punch Man Season 3. Let us get to more details about this upcoming season.
Saitama only became a hero for fun, but after three years of special training, he finds that he can beat even the mightiest opponents with a single punch.
Though he faces new enemies every day, it turns out being devastatingly powerful is actually kind of a bore. He can’t find opponents challenging who can push his limits
The second season raised everyone’s expectations and all that fans are now waiting is for is the third season. There are leaks about Overlord Season 4 and Demon Slayer season 2 getting released soon as well.
One Punch Man Season 3 Release Date
One Punch Man Twitter account already has given us hints for the next season. The production has finally begun after so much waiting and MAPPA has taken all the work on their shoulders.
We expect the One Punch Man season 3 to be aired around April 2023.
Both earlier seasons have been produced by TV Tokyo, EJMS, and Shueisha. So we can expect all 3 of them to produce One Punch Man’s third season. Viz Media has been the licensor.
OPM Season 1 was made by Madhouse and 2 by JC staff. We don’t know for sure but it will probably be JC Staff studio who will take up One Punch Man S3.
According to the latest rumors, the production process has finally begun and we expect the official One Punch Man Season 3 release date to be out soon.
Season 1 first aired from October 5, 2015, to December 21st, 2015, and season 2 aired from April 9 2019 to July 2nd, 2019. We expect the third season to start airing from April 2023 to July 2023.
No official trailer has been released yet, but we might get one soon since the anime production has started.
OPM Season 3 Plot And Trailer
Also, One Punch Man Season 3 will involve the character building of Garou – opening the way for him to become an opposite pastiche to Saitama. Garou, a human wants to be a monster because of his childhood trauma.
Garou already took down a number of formidable heroes. Monster association invited Garou to join their association as their motives are the same – the destruction of heroes.
The number of demon-level threats is increasing rapidly; hero association is not able to cope with it. Heroes are getting short in number. The Monsters have a new king.
He looks big and far stronger than previous monsters, maybe even Saitama will have a hard time.
Apparently, the Hero Association will launch a major sting operation on the monsters. They will gather all the S-Class Heroes. How strong will they all be together? Will Blast appear again? Can Tatsumaki go all out in this fight? We will find out in One Punch Man Season 3.
The monster association held hands with Garou and have protected him. This indicates that Garou will join the monster association. But it’s still a debatable question whether Garou will eat those monster cells and recreate himself as a full-fledged monster or not.
Genos has upgraded himself and is far more powerful than before. We can call that in next season there will be more fights and more power.
OPM Season 3 will be based on the Hero association vs Monster association. It’s for sure that Saitama will have to face a lot of challenges ahead.
