The staff and cast of the One Punch Man anime, based on ONE and Yusuke Murata’s manga, were reunited for the One Punch Man Fall Festival on Sunday (September 25th). There, they made the announcement that the anime’s second season is at last close at hand, and also revealed that the series is inspiring a smartphone game app to be released next year. Fans were steered towards the anime’s official Twitter and website for more details coming soon.

Murata’s manga is running free on Shueisha’s Tonari no Young Jump spin-off site, and adapts ONE’s original web manga. The studio Madhouse anime adaptation, directed by Shingo Natsume, aired its first season in Japan between October and December 2015, and Animax streamed the show to the UK as it aired. Shueisha published the manga’s 11th volume in Japan on June 3rd, and VIZ Media released its eighth English volume on September 6th.

No surprise given how popular the first series was. Given how much I like superheroes I need to make some time to see what all the One Punch Man fuss was about.

Yeah, we all knew this would happen. The first season’s got some hilarious bits poking fun at those comic book, Saturday morning cartoon heroes and villains, and the animation’s great when Saitama pretty much goes Super Saiyan. So I’d recommend giving it a try.
