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?

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😢

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.

Watched the first 3 episodes. Not gonna lie, i might like the new animation style way more. Everythings more fluent, and the story's already better then s1, even though it was already my fav anime. I was skeptical as fuck after watching the trailer, but oh boy have they pulled it off.

*Murata:* So I'm catching up to where you left off in your comic, but I'm not sure I'll have enough material to make another volume unless you finish the stuff after Garou. So, no rush, but when are you going to start updating again? *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. ~AN ENTIRE WEIRD TOURNAMENT ARC LATER~ *Murata:* So they're making Season 2 of the anime with all that filler content from my manga series. *ONE:* Shit! Shit! Shit!

Where did everyone's Common Sense go? Like it least you got a season 2 to watch. Like literally this got views?? 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)

I enjoyed the first 2 episodes of season 2. Season 1 was god-tier, so season 2 would always disappoint. Be glad it went to JC Staff - they could have sent it to a much less capable studio, the list is long. I just hope they pull up their socks and turn up the heat on the quality & energy though.

I wouldn't have minded waiting for Madhouse to do S2, since I feel like this is just making weebs rise up in arms tbh... they're an alright studio, but yeah. I'll still watch probably though.

I haven't watched any of season 2 yet and, frankly, I think I'll keep it that way. OPM holds a very special place in my heart not because it was my third anime ever, but because it was the first anime I could enjoy with other people. Not everyone gets the appeal of Jojo, BNHA and a shitload of old classics that I think I'd struggle to mention all of. One Punch Man, however, is much easier to get into because it doesn't take itself very seriously and has plenty of great gags. I remember watching it on Netflix at home when my mum sat down and watched it with me, and I remember how much we both laughed. I even roped my brother into watching it, who avoids anime like the plague. Even though I'm sure the new animation team will be able to do the story justice, I just can't see them doing what made One Punch Man fantastic for me: the plethora of fantastic *visual* gags. If the animation I saw in the trailer was anything to go by, I just can't imagine the team hitting the nail on the head with this season, and that makes me genuinely sad.

I really dont get all this fuzz regarding animation. Maybe you are right, maybe the animation got downgraded and im not weeb enough to see it, but as long as the history remains as good as it is now there is no reason to complain about the animation. At some point you compared season 2 with Zombie Simpsons. Is not that bad, come on.

Idk, i feel like the new season is just as good as the original, i mean they do cut the scenes in some awkward places. like i get that they want to build suspense but not this much. Other then that i think it's good, The new villain Garos seems like he would be weaker then season 1's final villain, but who knows maybe he will be depicted in some other way later on. As of now i like the series and hope they don't ruin it later.

The reviews I read growing up isn't about crying technical stuffs but the story arc.. Seriously nobody care if u do not want to watch Season 02.. Finding proper directors and studio to produce people complain it takes too long. Rushed into Season 2 to be badly criticize on stupid stuffs instead of story arc.
Domenico Elio Bressanello
Honestly I gave this a chance, as long as they didn't fuck up the fights and they would still allow for saitama to be who he is, the animation could be trash I would watch it. Issue is, they fucked the fights and my favourite characters, so no thanks, ep. 2 is where I'll stop

It is pretty bad. Most of the "fights" are just still frames with cuts, and a ton of the movement in the series comes with little to no weight. I'll give you an example. When Saitama defeats the giant crow in front of King, there is no animation that signifies what happened. All we see is "Oh, he defeated the bird" we never see exactly how. And another example is with our new villain wiping out the whole warehouse of criminals in order to show his dominance. We never fully see what he does in order to do this. All we get are still frames and shots that suggest a movement that leads to a cut where all the sudden everyone in the room is dead. It's uninteresting. In the first season, every move is dynamic, has tons of weight into it, and the impact of every hit is massive. One example I can give is the MASSIVE craters that Saitama leaves every time he leaps like when he destroys the meteor. Here, the only time we ever see Saitama's movement really affect the terrain is in ep2 where he takes a jump and it leaves a rather small footprint in the ground. Like what?! Or when Saitama leaps from King's apartment, it is as if he just floats off into space and there is hardly any lead-in, or weight put into the jump. These are FUNDAMENTALS of what makes good quality animation, and the new episodes don't really display much of it at all. The animation for this season would have been fine, but so much of OPM hinges on displaying the raw power of Saitama which requires fluid, dynamic and expressive combat. And the newest few episodes seem to almost entirely lack it minus the odd frame or two. Because of how much these characters rely on their animation to make them interesting (Especially Saitama, as his entire arc is based around being the strongest man to ever exist), there is less of a connection with these characters in terms of seeing how powerful they are when all we are mostly given is just cut frames with implied combat. OPM S2 could have been an absolute killer if they gave the new artists more time to work on the project, but it was instead rushed to the point where all animation aspects that made the first season such a joy to watch were practically stripped away.
