Fans are now waiting for the coming of One Punch Man Season 3 after Season 2 ended in July 2019. One year and a half without any news about a third season, will it still come to fruition?
Despite the lack of update, One Punch Man Season 3 remains one of the most anticipated anime series. With its huge success and fame, fans are clamoring to see a new season.
Possible Season 3 plotline
If the third installment sees the light of the day, fans may see more of Garou.
Apart from his human-monster form, Garou has another side that may come into being.
According to Devdiscourse, Garou may have a connection with the beasts after he takes the beast pills.
He will eventually turn into a prominent enemy that Saitama has to face. This time, his being “one-punched man” will have no effect on Garou, as he can’t bring him down with just a single blow.
Viewers may also see the Heroes Association going against the Monster Association. They will invade the monsters’ headquarters that will lead to one-on-one fights.
The S-Class heroes, like Zombieman, Atomic Samurai, and Flashy Flash, will go head-to-head with their monster counterparts.
Manga materials the new season will adapt.
To make sure that One Punch Man Season 3 will be in the works, there should be enough manga materials to be adapted.
So far, there is no official announcement made yet about the coming of the third season. As some believed Season 2 was a disaster, there are assumptions the anime may never continue or, worst, canceled.
But, with enough materials, there is still hope for a third season.
Anime Next Season noted there are a total of 22 manga volumes One Punch Man has. Chapters 107 to 138 are also yet to be released in tankobon format.
So, by the looks of it, there are enough sources for the third season to continue.
The series’ first season adapted Volumes 1 to 7, while the second season was based on Volumes 8 to 16.
If there will be One Punch Man Season 3, it may continue from Volume 17 onward. This only means there are six books available for the anime adaptation.
Fans should only take these assumptions with a grain of salt as nothing about One Punch Man Season 3 is confirmed yet. It is much better if there will be an official announcement about the anime’s renewal or Saitama’s return.
