Fans of the satirical superhero anime have expressed excitement at the news, but some may have doubts considering the major changes that were made to the show after its debut season. The change in animation studios from Studio Madhouse to J.C.Staff in Season 2 were met with mixed opinions, with some viewers complaining that the show’s visual quality had diminished in the shift.
With no news on who will be in charge of the animation for the upcoming season, viewers are left to speculate until more information is released. In the meantime, fans of “One Punch Man” can look forward to the upcoming live-action film adaptation, helmed by “Fast & Furious” director Justin Lin.
