One-Punch Man (Japanese: ワンパンマン Hepburn: Wanpanman) is an ongoing Japanese superhero webcomic created by ONE which began publication in early 2009.
It isn’t clear how long had passed since the first season took place, but it doesn’t seem to be too long as Saitama class B standing remains the same. This season we are seeing more expanded back story to some previous characters along with an introduction to some new one.
Though there was a change in the production studio and director, the humor and action are consistent with the first season. The animation is just as gorgeous as the last season and conveys the dynamic action scenes wonderfully.
This would be considered a dark fantasy in most case, but the show color theme is so bright and vibrant, while the tone is so light it does not feel like it.
This season switches the focus on the side and supporting characters, rather than Saitama himself. Some may not like the change, but I believe it further flesh out the world.
If you enjoy the previous season, you will definitely love this season. I highly recommend this for the action-comedy fan. One Punch Man contains graphic violence and suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for young adults.
