The announcement of the One Punch Man season 3 release date has been eagerly awaited since the conclusion of season 2 in July 2019. The popularity of anime continues to grow, and it’s taking the world by storm, particularly in the U.S, which has the highest demand for anime per capita outside of Japan.

One Punch Man first aired in 2015 and has grown a loyal following as the years have passed. It now stands with a score of 8.8 on IMDb after receiving nearly over 100,000 votes, 24 episodes under its belt. The series initially started as a webcomic and, by June of 2012 had surpassed 7.9 million hits.

What is One Punch man about?

One-Punch Man is a story about Saitama, and he is a superhero who can defeat any enemy with a single punch. The protagonist is overwhelmed by boredom because his unmatched strength means he is left virtually unchallenged at every single encounter.

Saitama becomes part of the Hero Association and begins to mentor a cyborg seeking revenge for his family’s death. They battle against the Monster Association, who is hell-bent on destroying the heroes and wreaking havoc in the process. 

It’s a great take on a hero having too much power and remains eventful despite Saitama’s incredible abilities. Let’s get onto the upcoming One Punch Man season 3 release date.

What will the plot be for One Punch Man Season 3?

Spoiler Alert Below!

One Punch man changed its tact in the 2nd series, moving from self-contained episodes with random stories to a single arc structure. It also meant significantly less screen time for the protagonist throughout.

The final episode of the series, Cleaning Up The Disciple’s Mess, centers around Bang and Garou’s battle, which is interrupted by Elder Centipede. The creature is too powerful for the band of heroes, but Saitama arrives just in time to save everyone. His single punch, of course, immediately defeats his enemy.

During the battle, Garous is taken by the Monster Association, who intends to turn the “Human Monster” into the real deal. That’s how it ends. No final major battle and not even a cliffhanger to build some excitement for One Punch Man Season 3.

Overall the final episode stands up well on its one merit but didn’t work very well as a finale. There wasn’t enough character development, and it didn’t leave enough to the imagination. Some fans were also not happy with the dip in animation quality throughout Season 2 of One Punch Man.

Many feel the next season will continue on the single long story arc journey and see the gang try to retrieve Garou from the Monster Association.

The expected release date for One Punch Man season 3 has not yet been officially confirmed. However, rumors from industry insiders believe it will come in mid-2021. The rise in popularity of the show means that another four-year wait is unlikely.
