No Spoilers from ether the Manga or Webcomic, this thread is specifically for the discussion of season 2 of the anime, if you are going to reference anything that happened in the Manga or Webcomic then make sure to tag those spoilers

One Punch Man season 2 is an anime by J.C. Staff that's based on a manga drawn by the very talented Yusuke Murata of Eyeshield 21 fame. The story is written by ONE of Mob Psycho 100, the original creator of the webcomic on which it is based. One Punch Man chronicles the life of Saitama, an overpowered superhero who has grown bored by the lack of a real challenge. While he lazes about, the Hero Association for which he works desperately attempts to contain threats to humanity.

One Punch Man season 2 is currently a Hulu exclusive that premiers every Tuesday

Crunchyroll announced that the second season hits Crunchyroll in the following territories: Europe, excluding French Speaking Europe and German Speaking Europe, and MENA.

Characters:

Saitama aka Caped Baldy

A Hero for fun and the Main Character of this story, he defeats his enemies effortlessly with one Punch

Genos

Saitama's disciple, a Cyborg out for revenge


Tatsumaki
Tatsumaki looks like a child but she's actually older the most of the main cast! Despite her small stature, she is the greatest telekinetic on the planet and easily one of the strongest characters in OPM. She also has a huge inferiority complex so she's liable to toss aside anyone who gets in her way, hero or villain alike.


Silver Fang
The premiere martial artist of the Hero Association, Bang is the master of Water Stream Rock Smashing Fist. He routinely tries to recruit both Saitama and Genos to his dojo without much success.

I want to get hype but the promotional material in addition to the knowledge about the staff changes have me super pessimistic :(

New opening should be banging at least.

The animation is probably gonna suck, but the source material will still be the same. It'll at least still be funny, but man, I hope the action scenes look good.

I expect the best action scene this scene to looks as good as the 'ok' ones from last season at best.

I hope everyone tempers their expectations because this looks like a trainwreck coming in hot. Still at least one's writing will keep things fun.

the thing about OPM is that Murata does the art so well, if Season 2s animation sucks ass I can just be happy sticking with the manga.

here's hoping.

ONE had to sacrifice his firstborn to exchange for all of the sakuga that we just got in Mob Psycho. It's a shame, but he made a good trade.

At least the manga still has Murata's godly art.

The animation won't be as good as season 1 because of a rushed schedule but season 2 will have more story and characters so I l'd still say it'll likely turn out great

Season 1 was made by Madhouse not Bones, and it's actually common for animes to not have all their episode finish before the premier, I'm not saying it's good but many shows have similar production schedule and turn out just fine
My fault, I corrected it in my edit (Mob messed me up). While it is true shows can have similar production schedules and turn out fine. Lots of characters are highly detailed in OPM and animation for fights are VERY demanding on time.

Can you realistically expect this

To be in an episode?

On top of that shots of animation in the PV already look preeeeety bad. And that was used to ADVERTISE the show. Here is OPM S1 PV for comparison.


I am excited for the new season because of the content it covers but I do want people to prepare themselves.

Everybody worried about the animation, but I'm wondering what the season will end up covering
I believe the perfect stopping point is
Garou getting Kicked to the wall while Saitama and King continue their conversation

Well I never said I expect the animation to be anywhere near what it was in season 1, I'm okay with mediocre animation as long as the pacing is good

Finished watching Season 1 last week and it was really great! Can’t wait for the premiere today!

Probably a dumb question, but I saw TV Time (TV episode tracking app) listed multiple “specials” that aren’t on Hulu or Netflix (Road to Hero, The Shadow That Snuck Up Too Close, etc.). Will I be fine going into Season 2 without watching those?

Yes, they are just little comedy short stories with no attachment to the main plot.

They're not needed, they're just fun filler episodes

Even if the animation's rough (hoping it's at least watchable though) the slice of life stuff should be fun to watch. One Punch Man's pretty tame after season 1 for awhile with fights and is more about gags/jokes from memory, though it gets really intense like the first season later.
