One-Punch Man Synopsis
For those who are new to the series, One-Punch Man follows the life of Saitama, a man who can defeat any foe with a single punch. He joins the Hero Association in a quest to find an opponent worth fighting. The series began as a webcomic in early 2009 and achieved international success. It was then re-created with illustrations by Yusuke Murata in June 2012 and published on the Weekly Young Jump website in Japan.
One-Punch Man Production Studios
The production studio for season 3 is MAPPA, and this is great news for fans, as many view MAPPA as superior to Madhouse, the studio responsible for the first season. J.C. Staff produced the second season.
One-Punch Man Manga
While the One-Punch Man manga is currently ongoing, with over 179 chapters and counting, illustrator Yusuke Murata announced on Twitter that he is taking a hiatus from his work on the manga for at least a month. Fans are excitedly waiting for the new arc to start once the manga returns.
One-Punch Man Live-Action Film
Sony Pictures has purchased the rights to One-Punch Man, and a live-action film is currently in production, with Justin Lin attached to the project as the film’s director. The film will be written by screenwriters Jeff Plinker and Scott Rosenberg, who have collaborated on Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and its sequel. Arad Productions will produce the film.
Makers of One-Punch Man Warn Against Fake News
The makers of the popular anime series, One Punch Man, have recently issued a statement warning against fake news due to a current rumor circulating about the show. In early December, the self-proclaimed leaker account Shonenleaks claimed that Studio MAPPA was working on the third season of the series, replacing the studio J.C. Staff and director Chikara Sakurai, who produced the second season.
However, there has been no official confirmation regarding the participants in the production or a release date for the new season. The only information that has been confirmed is that a sequel to One Punch Man has received the green light.
The official One Punch Man Twitter account also stressed that further information will only be disclosed via their own account, and warned fans not to be misled by any other sources. As of now, there is no new information available to announce.
