Only a few dubbed animation series amazed me. And the One Punch Man season 2 dub is one of them.
Though I liked most the season, nonetheless, the season also grabbed my heart. The animation quality and story line up was worth enough to discuss here about this anime.
Now, haven’t you watched this one yet? Then I must say, you should watch it. But before that, let’s have a look at some important facts of One Punch Man.
Is One Punch Man Season 2 Released?
The second season of One Punch Man was released on April 09 and continued until July 02, 2019. There were 12 episodes in Season 2. You already know that One Punch Man anime is from a Japanese manga written by One and illustrated by Yusuke Murata.
The second season covers manga from volume 8-16. The manga volumes are continuing. So there is a chance of getting One Punch Man Season 3. But the confirmation has not been made yet.
Is it on Netflix?
Yes, you can find One Punch man Season 1 and 2 on Netflix.
Season 2 based on Hero Hunter Garou, was released on Hulu on April 09, 2019. But fans were waiting for an English dub and Netflix solved their problem on April 30, 2019.
Netflix has more anime series like My Hero Academia Season 4 Dub with English.
Is One Punch Man Season 2 finished?
Just like the 1st season, Season 2 of One Punch Man also came to end with twelve episodes. So even if the manga continues, there will not be episode 13 in season 2. Also, it is not officially declared if there will be season 3 or not.
Many manga’s get their sequel based on their popularity of the last season. Domestic Girlfriend and Dororo are also stopped at season 1. And it is not announced if they will release Domestic Girlfriend Season 2 and Dororo Season 2.
The popular anime Dragon Ball Super fans are even waiting for Dragon Ball Super Season 2. Based on its popularity there may be next season.
Is One Punch Man Season 2 Worth To Watch?
Based on fan’s comments, One Punch Man Season 1 was more popular for its animation. But in Season 2, fans missed that animation. It happens because the studio, producers, directors got changed after One Punch Man season 1.
Season 1 production was in Madhouse Studio directed by Shingo Natsume. One Punch Man season 1 was released from October 5 to December 21, 2105, on TV Tokyo. And the sound quality, production quality, animation were mind-blowing for fans. I liked the 1st season also. After watching the 1st season, fans expected more for season 2.
But on September 25, 2017, they announced that they would change the production company, director, also sound director. Thus the season 2 was animated by J.C.Staff and directed by Chikara Sakurai. Sound director Shoji Hata was changed and Yoshikazu Iwanami was added in his position.
The change in production studio as well as in director and sound director could not fulfill fan’s satisfaction. Fans wanted more but got disappointed with what they got to see in season 2.
The plot and storyline also disappointed fans. In season 1, they got to see the breathtaking fight between Saitama vs Boros. After watching season 1 everyone expected more comedy and more amazing fight scenes in season 2. But season 2 made fans dissatisfied. The fights were not as amazing as season 1 and the main focus was not on our beloved hero Saitama!
So eventually season 2 could not satisfy the fans.
Is One Punch Man Season 2 Out In English?
Obviously, for fans, this anime series came with an English dub. International fans wait for the anime series English dub version. One Punch Man season 2 series English dub version came out in Toonami. Also for the international fans, the anime series was aired on Netflix.
Other anime series like Gate Season 3 which is only available on Netflix UK and Netflix Japan but One punch Man is available worldwide with its English dub.
Some of the series like Knights Of Sidonia Season 3 left Netflix in July 2019 but also came back in December 2019.
For Satima’s character, Max Mittelman’s voice was used in season one and Zach Aguilar as Genos. Other actors Robbie Daymond, Ray Chase, Kyle Herbert, and also appeared in the 1st season. For season 2, Greg Chun voiced Garou. Alan Lee as Suiryu, Bill Millsap as Gyoro-Gyoro, Jason Marnocha as Orochi.
Was One Punch Man Season 2 Profitable?
Based on JC Staff Producer, One Punch man Season 2 was able to earn a big chunk of profit. It was possible due to its streaming in the international market.
And thus proving its worth among the international anime audience. This is also the reason Sony Pictures is adapting the manga into a live action feature film.
Although there are many conflicted opinions on the profit margin in the local and international market, I think One Punch Man Season 2 was profitable due to its international market.
This is the reason, series like One Punch Man and Dragon Ball Super Season 2 have come into production and are streamed in the international market.
The Popularity Of One Punch Man Season 2 In Social Media?
One Punch Man Season 1 attracted its fans with its animation quality, not to mention also for its comedy yet awesome fight scenes. Fans waited eagerly for One Punch Man Season 2 and talked about it while waiting. On April 09, 2019, their wait ended with its come back, season 2.
Fans always comment on their shows, based on storyline, fight scenes, comedy. But for One Punch Man Season 2, the most talked topic was the animation quality. Behind the scenes topic was raised due to poor animation quality of season 2.
Season 1 was a fan favorite, for its animation quality, fight scenes and comedy level. But season 2 made the fans a little bit unsatisfied. Maybe the change of production studio from Madhouse to JC staff is the reason for poor animation quality.
Season 1 showed the fans a little peek of S-classes heroes and their personalities. But with season 2, we got to watch their peculiar personalities and enormous fighting skills. Also, Garou was introduced in season 2, which made the fans more excited.
Many fans questioned Saitama’s cyborg Genos. As for season 1, Genos got much attention, but in season 2 he could not be seen in the first five episodes that much. Fans missed the interaction between Saitama and Genos.
Although the animation quality was questioned by the fans, the popularity of Saitama’s punch was not faded. Season 2 ended with many questions. And fans are still talking about it.
When Will The One Punch Man Season 3 come?
Despite being a fan favorite, One Punch Man Season 3 will not come in 2020.Fans are waiting for Season 3 of One Punch Man , the same way they were waiting for Kings Avatar Season 2, which started to stream in September 2020.
One Punch Man Season 2 ended in an odd place. Though One Punch Man Season 1 was loved by the fans, season 2 lost its charm. For the sudden change of production studio, animation quality was not as good as season 1.
Season 2 did not get much response from the fans. So there is no official announcement about season 3 release date yet. But the manga is going on with its storyline.
Fans can now wait for another season of One Punch Man. But it’s not sure if One Punch Man Season 3 will come or not. I know it is irritating, as they don’t know the actual release date like Gate Season 3. Let us hope for the best.
One Punch Man Season 4 Release Date
One Punch Man Season 2 was the last season of this manga until now. One Punch Man season 1 and 2 both had 12 episodes. The manga is ongoing with its episodes but season 3 has not made its release date yet.
I guess we have to wait a long time for One Punch Man Season 4. It will come after releasing One Punch Man Season 3. In the meantime, you can enjoy the manga.
We are about to end our mission to let you know everything about One Punch Man. I hope you have enough knowledge now about this animation series.
You know even, I am not satisfied with the One Punch Man Season 2. I didn’t get what I expected from this 2nd season. But who knows the next season may be worth watching. Till then, let’s wait and have fun.
