Even though animes with a single premise don’t do well, One Punch Man Season 3 is keenly awaited all around the globe. Its animation and story forms an inexplicable enigma. A fan wrote on Google Reviews, “It possesses such an incomprehensible power mixed with striving. The dynamic between the weak and the strong is highlighted that shows suspense like no other.”
One Punch Man premiered in October 2015 in Japan. Its producer is Madhouse, and its creator is the famous artist ONE. The second season premiered in 2019. It is the story of a superhero, Saitama, from City Z who can beat any man with just a single punch. He is a One Punch Man. The show takes us along his personal development, his training to be the best version of himself he can be. It portrays his association with other heroes to save his city from the Monster Association. The show spawned a video game called ‘One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows’ on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
On the one hand, Rotten Tomatoes gave the first season of the show 100%, other critics like IGN and Screen rant criticized the second season for feeling “static, bland and uninspiring.” This enhances the fans’ expectations about One Punch Man Season 3 even more.
Release Date of One Punch Man Season 3
A question that’s been around ever since the second season’ finale is “When will One Punch Man Season 3 release?” Season two was announced after one year of the first season but came out after four years. The makers would have announced the third season had the pandemic not happened. The ending of the second season ‘The Wiping of the Disciple’s Butt’ was epic, so there is no way that Madhouse will not release a third year.
As we are still in the pandemic and the entertainment industry has slowed down, we place our bets in 2021 for the announcement of the third season.
Yusuke Murata, the artist responsible for beautiful scenes and battles, tweeted, letting us know that the upcoming installment is currently under construction.

This is some good news for all the fans. You can rely on the fact that makers are at work again.
In Season 3 as well, we will see Saitama slaughtering his opponents, but his relationship with Garou will have a different approach. Reportedly, Garou will establish a relationship with beasts. If this happens, then he will become mighty and equal to Saitama’s strength. This arc will serve as a significant dose of stress for Saitama and a major dose of entertainment for us. The second season’s animation quality dropped, so we hope the makers level it up again this season.
Season 3 will introduce more of S Heroes, and we will know how strong A rank number one hero Amai Mask truly is. The season will focus more on hero and monster association arc.
The fans are waiting eagerly, hoping they don’t have to wait for another four years for a third season. Till then, you can stream the previous seasons on Crunchyroll.
