What is Happening to One Punch Man?

  • Published on Mar 23, 2019
  • One Punch Man Season 2 is right around the corner, and it's looking... kinda terrible? What the heck happened in the last three years to make the Hero for a Hobby fall so far from grace?

    This video sounds waaaay too whiney for what is essentially a short trailer for a second season that looks nearly as good as the first. If you're not able to immerse yourself in S2 because the animation is just that drastically shit, maybe you're into anime for entirely different reasons than I am?

    They should learn from attack on titan...attack on titan is the only anime that have more than one season and consistently continues to getting better visually, musically . ...plot presentations is superb with good amount of suspense plus good explanations that leave the fan hanging and curious of what gonna happen next , which is good...the anime also remain truthful to manga plot's ..and present the art of the manga surounding's beautifully...
    The second season that takes 4years to be air from season 1 , are worth the wait and fan are not disappointed..cant wait for season 4 ...many manga such like tokyoghoul and berserk are badly received when turning into anime as the productiions team are rushing it , change the plot alltogether, inconsistent qualities, graphics changes or even VA changes...too bad onepunchman are added to the list or unless they fix it...and will remain loyal to manga that never disappoints me...

    Also it’s really annoying reading “oh the manga is so much better” that’s not why they make a show duh they make it to bring the characters to life and for those who either don’t like or want to read. Also it’s been tossed around so much you have to give them some slack for delivering a good season with not a lot of time.

    I don’t get why people think the animation is bad. I think it looks alright and once the 3 first episodes for season 2 got released I actually enjoyed not only the animation but the story and how it actually looks like it was made from the original manga. The animation could change to stick figures and I’d still watch it

      I'm not understanding any of the hate or any of the talk about the hate or why the animation was even talked about in the first place. If the animation is any different it's not different enough to make it bad. It's still One Punch Man, it's still amazing, and everything else in the show has either stayed the same or gotten better. People need to lose their animation erections.

      Well. Considering the title is one punch man, we can honestly guess whats gonna happen in the story. What made it so popular is how absurd it was, and it was great at being absurd. The animation sold that absurdity pretty damn well.
      So I can understand why people are getting riled up over the animation.

    It would be nice to think that they could have studios alternate so we can get Madhouse back in the saddle for season 3, but also give some of the up and coming studios a chance to shine. That way we get more OPM, the creators get to try new things and the execs get the $$$.

    I can not BELIEVE what they did to this show. Holy fuck! Its complete ass! Animation, pacing, audio, editing, everything. How does this happen?? Mob Psycho 100 was even better this season in terms of quality and this show went the complete opposite. I couldn’t even finish the second ep. guess ill stop torturing myself and read the manga now. I just hope the old studio comes back for the next season (if it even gets another). I’m so disappointed😢

  • kay oss

    Kind of jumping to conclusion dont you think? WHen i first saw the trailer to One Punch Man season 1, i wasnt impressed either. It took a year for my friend to convince me to give it a go. I saw the first episode and thought the animation was horrible for a main character until i realized that that was what they were going for. Now that Season 2 have arrive, the animation is actually a lot better than season 1's but at the same time they kept some of the funny animation of Saitama in it. Thats the beauty of this show, it doesnt take itself too seriously.

    What happened to season 2 of One Punch Man is unfortunate, but what happened to the creators of Kemono Friends season 1 is an outrage and a tragedy. One Punch Man was a great intellectual property that got the royal treatment by a great animation team and was as amazing a show as you would expect given its pedigree. Kemono Friends was a trash IP for a dead mobile game with a budget that consisted of a five dollar bill, some pocket change, and a stick of gum which a tiny crew of dedicated creators brought to life and turned into a surprise hit with their inventive story telling and charming characters in spite of everything. The producers then literally turned around and fired the people responsible for turning their pile of shit dead mobile game into a gold mine and then smeared their names in the industry.
    At least with One Punch Man it's not like they went and fired the geniuses that made it after it was successful. Those folks who did season 1 are just too busy working on their own projects.

    *ONE:* Uhh, I'm kind of burnt out after finishing Mob Psycho 100, maybe you could do a filler arc in the meantime, maybe flesh out the Garou arc a bit more?
    *Murata:* Oh, yeah, that's cool, I can probably do that.

Of all things that don't deserve attention an of all rants that deserves attention this gets views? Shut your trap an be great full that there is a season 2 of one punch man. The graphics?? Nobody gives a shit look at the manga, the Creator of one punch man had the worse graphics but people didn't care about graphics like this is so sad to see so called fans of one punch man bitch about graphics my bro. No more words needed to describe how sick I am of this petty rant about one punch man. (Edit: an btw I don't see nothing wrong, all I see is one punch man season 2 an that's what really matters)

    After watching first two episodes, I regrettably need to say, that the overall feel and the animation in the S2 is at best mediocre and shit if compared to S1. I was hoping to see awesome fights from manga being animated with the same quality as they were in the S1. What a waste...
