Due to the success of its last season, fans are pretty much excited to see what happens in the One Punch Man Season 3. The second season only came out in 2019 after 4 years of a long wait so you can expect a little wait time in the third season also. But the main question here is ‘Will there be One Punch Man Season 3?
Will there be a One Punch Man Season 3?
When will one punch man season 3 episode 1 air? One Punch Man Season 3 is yet to be confirmed but the anime enthusiasts are passionately waiting to get the breaking news. The success of the first season of the One Punch Man anime was largely the work of producer Shingo Natsume, rather than the work of Madhouse as a whole. As Shingo Natsume was not available, Madhouse very likely didn’t want to take on the project.
However, the good part is that there has been no announcement on the discontinuation of the One Punch Man anime series. Also, there are other anime Madhouse fans who really want to watch among those Hunter X Hunter Season 7, No Game No Life Season 2, Overlord Season 4, and Btooom Season 2.
One Punch Man Season 2 is not produced by Madhouse Studio it was produced by J.C.Staff Studio, (Prison School Season 2, Maid Sama Season 2 & High School of The Dead) So we don’t know whether the OPM Season 3 will be made by either of these studios or maybe a new studio, we have to wait for the official announcement by the author or producers of the anime.
Is One Punch Man Season 3 Delayed?
Yes, One Punch Man season 3 is delayed. When season 2 aired, it received a lot of criticism that made one wonder if the anime will be canceled. Saitama’s show has not been officially renewed for a third season. But, fortunately, it has not been canceled either.
The information is evident due to a tweet from the official Twitter page from One Punch Man. In this tweet, they thanked viewers for watching the second season. And as they did so, they asked for the support of fans so that a One Punch Man Season 3 would soon be approved to begin production. If so, they promised to come back soon.
One Punch Man Season 3 Release Date
The story for the anime is based on the One Punch Man manga series by creator ONE. Fans are also waiting for the author’s other manga Mob Psycho 100 Season 3.
Saitama’s ability to knock out anyone by a single punch is something that the public is most impressed with, but without the third season, we will never learn more about Saitama’s struggles to make a place for him with the other superheroes. We will never get to see if there would be any war between Garao and S class heroes.
One Punch Man Season 3 Release date might be out in the summer of 2022. As for the OPM Season 3 Release Date, there’s no such confirmation out yet. However, the anime won’t be back before the summer of 2022.
You can always check out the manga to find out the remaining story of One Punch Man, but most people will still wait for years for One Punch Man Season 3 to come out because of its fantastic animation and storyline.
While most of us are greatly confident that the One Punch Man Season 3 will come out sooner or later as the story was left at an interesting part but still there can be a number of reasons for no season 3.
To be 100% sure about the same, we must follow few steps which include researching the anime’s Source Material, Popularity, Sales, and Profit. This information alone can give you an insight into the possibility of the One Punch Man Season 3.
One Punch Man Popularity
Season 2 of One Punch Man did not see that much popularity compared to season 1 but it is quite common in anime series. The opening song of the second season did not receive a particularly good response that did hurt the mainstream popularity the franchise received from the first season. The good part here is that their social media has burst with new followers daily and merchandise is also getting popular day by day.
Is there enough Source Material for One Punch Man Season 3
Source material plays an important role in determining the possibility of a sequel. One punch man is an adaptation from Manga and there are currently a total of 23 manga volumes of One Punch Man out of which 1-7 volumes were used in 2015 for the first season. The next season used 8-16 manga volumes that means we are still left with plenty of material for the next season.
Other than this, One Punch Man Volumes are still ongoing, the recent one being released on 4 Jan 2021, we are hoping for more volumes to be released in the next couple of months.
One Punch Man Sales and Profit
It is quite common in anime world for the sequel to sell less than the previous season but the catch here is to maintain the sufficient amount of profit to survive the next season.
In One Punch Man’s case, Blu-ray’s sale saw a significant drop, but its manga and merch are doing great in the market earning an exceptionally good amount. They even announced 2 new games, one for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC and the other for iOS and Android devices. Season 2 did hurt the One Punch Man franchise, but we still have high hopes from season 3 to fix it again.
