Japanese superhero webcomic One-Punch Man premiered back in 2015, as fans can finally look forward to the return of the show. This week Viz Media has announced the release date for the long-awaited second season, arriving in April of 2019.
One-Punch Man, an action-based comedy, centers around Saitama, a guy who trained so hard that he became bald, somehow leading him to be more powerful than anyone else. In season two, Saitama returns alongside Genos, a 19-year-old cyborg and the disciple of Saitama, and we are also introduced to a new villain named Garou.
You can read the official synopsis for the second season of One-Punch Man below:
Saitama is a hero who only became a hero for fun. After three years of “special training,” he’s become so strong that he’s practically invincible. In fact, he’s too strong—even his mightiest opponents are taken out with a single punch. Now, the great seer Madame Shibabawa’s prediction about the Earth being doomed seems to be coming true as the frequency of monster incidents escalates. Alongside Genos, his faithful disciple, Saitama begins his official hero duties as a member of the Hero Association, while Garou, a man utterly fascinated by monsters, makes his appearance.
One-Punch Man season two premieres next April.
