Cheer up, One Punch fonds. The official One Punch Man webpage revealed on August 18th, 2022, that season 3 is under production. Saitama has finally made a comeback. The Monster Association Arc, which took part in several of the most fierce fights, will be the centrepiece of the sequel.
It’s been three years since the end of the second season. Fans will be thrilled to discover that Chikashi Kubota, the official character designer, confirmed season 3 of the anime. However, which studio is going to develop the series is yet to be revealed. With its two seasons, One Punch Man and its dynamic universe have given the audience a wild journey. It is safe to presume that the animation studios, Madhouse and JC Staff, have done all possible to bring ONE and Yusuke Murata’s drawings to life.
While the animator studio hasn’t been officially announced, a highly credible leak account has revealed that MAPPA Studio is handling season 3 production. The account is run by Twitter user Shounen Leaks, who has been known to leak information that has later turned out to be true. The account later got suspended which left fans in confusion, also indicating the information was pretty sensitive.
The official One Punch Man account tweeted addressing the fans regarding the leaks that this is the only One Punch Man’s official Twitter handle. Please don’t let unreliable information from other accounts lead you astray. When the moment is right, accurate information will be released through this account.
