More than three years after the debut of the "Caped Baldy" on TV-Anime, Saitama finally returns with the Season 2 of One-Punch Man anime.

The story of One-Punch Man follows the heroic adventures of Saitama, who was once an average person, but after training for three years became the strongest superhero on the planet. The original idea of the manga is just a parody of other Shonen manga series, like Dragon Ball Z and Naruto, with all the cliché characters stereotypes - only to deconstruct and joke around them. However, it quickly became one of the most famous Shonen manga series, although each battle only lasted until Saitama threw his first punch.

The series, written and illustrated by an artist with a simple pen-name: One, started out as a self-published webcomic. However, thanks to its overwhelming popularity, the manga was quickly picked up by Jump, given a professional artist and published as a part of the company’s Young Jump Web Comics site in Japan. The official English version of the series is licensed by Viz Media, which publishes the series in its Weekly Shonen Jump digital magazine.

In 2015, the first season of the One-Punch Man anime debuted to critical and cultural success, hailed as one of the best anime seasons of all time. With all this acclaim a second season seemed sure to follow, but production was delayed for unknown reasons. After the production stalled for nearly two years, it was announced that Madhouse, the acclaimed studio behind the first season, and series like Death Note and movies like Paprika and Perfect Blue, would not be working on the second season of the anime. Replace Madhouse is J.C. Staff, a studio best known for Shokugeki no Soma anime.

One-Punch Man season 2 will be available in April 2019, at the start of the spring anime season in Japan.
