'One-Punch Man’ Season 2: How to Watch Online

Anime fans, One-Punch Man Season 2 is finally about to premiere! Years since the release of the first season, Saitama, Genos and the rest of the heroes return to take out bad guys, and monsters in the most over-the-top action you’ll see.

Delays and production schedule problems plagued the release of the second season. The series premiered in October 2015, under Studio Madhouse, which was then given to J.C. Staff, a studio best known for Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma and Bakuman.

In May 2018, Viz Media announced it acquired the exclusive rights to One-Punch Man Season 2. These rights include digital streaming, TV broadcast, home media and merchandising rights for the territories of North America, Latin America and Oceania. In March, it was revealed that One-Punch Season 2 would premiere on April 9 exclusively with Hulu.

Here’s the official synopsis of One-Punch Man Season 2:

“In Season 2, Saitama is a hero who only became a hero for fun. After three years of “special training,” he’s become so strong that he’s practically invincible. In fact, he’s too strong – even his mightiest opponents are taken out with a single punch. Now, the great seer Madame Shibabawa’s prediction about the Earth being doomed seems to be coming true as the frequency of monster incidents escalates. Alongside Genos, his faithful disciple, Saitama begins his official hero duties as a member of the Hero Association, while Garou, a man utterly fascinated by monsters, makes his appearance.”
