One Punch Man Season 3 Needs To Recapture The Magic
The US Navy has a famous catchphrase that goes “KISS” or “Keep it Simple Stupid.” “KISS” is “One Punch Man” in a nutshell. Our protagonist, Saitama is a hero who punches bad guys. That’s really it. Well, besides the fact that Saitama’s punches are stupid strong. So strong in fact that he usually obliterates his opponent in “One Punch.”
So, after punching a lot of bad guys up, our protagonist starts to get bored. His world is full of Godzilla-sized monsters and Dragon Ball Z-type villains but all are defeated by one (or sometimes a few punches). This leads to our hero having an existential crisis in season 2 of the series.
Unlike other shows, “One Punch Man” isn’t about our hero getting stronger. No, conversely, the antagonists are too weak and our hero is getting tragically bored.
How does a show like this work? If you watch the first episode you’ll see that it works magnificently actually. This series has magic and it’s time for One Punch Man season 3 to recapture it.
What We Know About One Punch Man Season 3
Unfortunately, we do not know much about season 3. Season 2 premiered on April 9, 2019, but before that, there were four years between the first and second season. This means anything can happen for season 3.
With the pace the manga is going at — not fast at all — it looks as though fans will have to wait at least another year for One Punch Man season 3.
It’s a tough blow, however, this next season can cement the series as one of the best of all-time.
Illustrator Yusuke Murata has penned some of his greatest work in the latest arc of the manga. Many new characters are explored and the artwork in these latest batches of chapters are breathtaking.
The anime has to live up to the hype, especially after a somewhat middeling season 2.
