Since so many franchises are returning with new seasons, One-Punch Man decided to hop in on it and give us the much-awaited third season.
The anime had received a lot of hate from fans due to the second season not being up to their expectations. It introduced one of the series’ most beloved villains, Garou, only to not do justice to his character.
Maybe One-Punch Man took so long to announce season 3 because they were working hard on Garou’s character.

The teaser visual for season 3 by Chikashi Kubota depicts a ripped Saitama and Garou with their backs to each other. Another attention-catching detail about the visual is Garou’s orange hair which is quite intriguing.
Did he get a new power-up? Is he trying out a new fashion trend? We don’t know yet, but we know that he will be an all-new version of himself in the upcoming season.
Since the new season will continue the Monster Association arc, the story will pick up right where it left off last time. The Monster Association declared war on the Hero Association, but we couldn’t catch much of it as it happened at the end of the season.
The franchise is yet to give us a date for the season’s premiere, but our guess is it will be out in 2023.
Unlike season 2, the third will be all about intense battles and Saitama being Saitama.
Not much will change in this superhero parody’s plot, but a lot more action is definitely getting added in the upcoming season.
About One Punch Man
One-Punch Man is a Japanese superhero webcomic created by the artist One in early 2009. It has a manga adaptation illustrated by Yusuke Murata, as well as an anime adaptation. Following its publication, the webcomic quickly went viral, surpassing 7.9 million hits in June 2012.
On an unnamed Earth-like supercontinent planet, powerful monsters and villains have been wreaking havoc in the cities. To combat them, the world’s government created a Hero Association that employs superheroes to stop them. The heroes are ranked from Class C to Class S.
Saitama, an unassociated hero, hails from the metropolis of City-Z and performs heroic deeds for his own entertainment. He has trained himself to the point where he broke his “limit” and can effortlessly defeat any opponent with a single punch while slaying monsters the same way. But he is now bored with his omnipotence and frustrated by sensing he lacks a challenge.
