    The only comedy anime I ever gave a damn about. It's coming back on April 2019. And I have a feeling it's not gonna be a one-punch solution.


    JAM Project has been confirmed to perform the opening theme song, and the new teaser visual of Saitama, Genos, and the new character Garou was also revealed, which I've posted above.

    Hearing that the animation crew won't be the same as last time but let's hope they manage to maintain the level of quality and consistency from the first season cause the art is this show's major highlight.


    J.C. Staff will be the animation studio this time round, not Madhouse. But character designer Chikashi Kubota will be reprising his role.



    Here's the teaser video

    Also, Viz Media has acquired the master license to the second anime season, including digital streaming, TV broadcast, electronic sell-through, home media, and merchandising rights for North America, Latin America and Oceania.

    This show is way better than it has any right to be.

    Since it's just a month and half away from premiering, I thought I'd drop my 2 cents on what I'm expecting. Madhouse isn't doing this one and also Natsume isn't directing. That's a double whammy. I watch this show mainly for the action and the Sakuga that goes behind it and I'm not all that confident whether JC Staff can deliver the eye candy. Not all that worried about the animation team and the music, cause that'll be much of the same but the director Chikara Sakurai worries me as well. Here's hoping the story arc is decent enough to paper the cracks. But a tournament arc sounds like the same old shonen shit. Which I avoid like the plague.
