One-Punch Man fans are rallying for season three and a new anime studio

One punch man burst onto the anime scene a few years ago and its first season remains a classic for superhero fanatics. Saitama and Genos assembled an army in just a few episodes, but their on-screen popularity has since waned. A somber second season has tainted much of the fandom, but now the community is uniting to demand a brighter future for the show.

The call started on Reddit before moving to platforms like Twitter and Tumblr. There, fans of the webcomic and manga lamented and rallied for the second season One punch man to return with a new anime studio at the helm.

“My personal preference: Studio Bones! The same crew that makes it Mob Psycho 100. They know and love the works of ONE, they work well with ONE, they are technically really creative and when they want to they do amazing action with crisp, crisp, crisp choreography,” wrote user gofancyninjaworld.

Another user chimed in with Ferdz, writing, “I’ve said that before too. I think it would be really cool because Bones is actually doing the final season for mob. adoption [One-Punch Man] after ONE the circle would really be closed. I would definitely love to see Studio Bones take over!”

For those who don’t know One punch man started at the madhouse. The studio company brought in Shingo Natsume to direct, and the beloved artist used his contacts to pull together a truly impressive roster of animators. This saw the first season shine amid stiff competition, but a long hiatus kept Madhouse from overseeing the second season.

The latest release of the anime was made by JC Staff, and the studio failed to impress on every front. From writing to animation, fans lamented the blow they were dealt One punch man as JC staff did not have the resources to accommodate Saitama. There hasn’t been a word about a third season since the second season ended in July 2019, and fans have all but given up hope after seeing how poorly the show has been received of late. But when studios like Bones or MAPPA have the staff to take over the IP, the fandom would love to show them their love!

Do you think One punch man getting a third season…? Or did the reactions to the second season weaken the anime? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below or reach out to me on Twitter @MeganPetersCB.
