One-Punch Man is a Japanese animated series based on a manga by ONE. The manga series was released online by ONE in 2009. By looking at the response, a remake was released in Tonari no Young Jump and in Weekly Shonen Jump magazines on June 14, 2012. The animated series was released on October 5, 2015, in TV Tokyo, Animax Asia, and Adult Swim.
The second season air ended on July 2, 2019. After that, the third season was expected sooner rather than the delay that was witnessed during the release of the second season.
The third season is speculated to be released by the end of 2020. Though the pandemic outbreak has adversely affected the anime industry and everyone has announced about the delay, One Punch Man has no official updates till now. A release in 2021 is highly expected and looked forward to by the fans.
The story is about a superhero, Saitama, who is so strong that he can knock down anyone with just a single punch. But such power also makes him bored and wants an enemy contender who is strong enough to challenge him. He seeks for an opponent with whom he can fight for a little longer.
The second season could not be a hit like the first season because of the delay of 4years in the release. But the content and animation were just as perfect as the previous season. Any details about the new storyline are not known till now.
