History will repeat itself in season 3 and Saitama will once again crave for the limelight in his own show ‘One-Punch Man’
‘One-Punch Man’ is a hero that nobody knows about. In the series, a bald dummy named Saitama possesses a God-like power that allows him to defeat any enemy, regardless of their power, with one punch.

Season 3 is about to cross all limits as we will not see the ‘One-Punch Man’ (Saitama) very often in his own show.
Why Saitama never gets the credit he deserves in ‘One-Punch Man’?
‘One-Punch Man’ is a unique superhero in that unlike the Marvel contemporaries, he never boasts about his powers. His extraordinary powers have become the biggest hurdle in life. He typically triumphs over incredible odds such that he is bored. His name, ‘One-Punch Man’, implies that he is so strong that he can defeat any opponent – from a humanoid crab to a towering giant – with a single punch.
All these extraordinary powers make crime-fighting scenes pretty dull for him. Most superheroes struggle with the villains for a while and succeed in the end, but in ‘One-Punch Man’, Saitama gets to come in the end, finish his job in seconds, and leave the screen.
According to the Japanese comics on which the series is based, Saitama will get even lesser screen-time in ‘One-Punch Man’ Season 3.
Even the process to acquire superpowers hasn’t been easy for him. He has had to work hard for years, for which he didn’t get enough credit. Yes, work hard instead of bombarding himself with radiation or asking a spider to bite him!
He lost all his air in the excruciating workouts by the age of 25. Saitama trained a bit too hard since he becomes so strong that he can now take down any enemy with a single punch. Now, finding life completely absent of challenge, Saitama likens fighting super-villains to swatting mosquitos. Saitama became a superhero to bring joy to his life but instead attracted boredom forever.
‘One-Punch Man’ Season 3 to go a notch higher in giving unfair treatment to Saitama
You ought to be waiting for the updates on ‘One-Punch Man’ Season 3 if you love Saitama. Based on the manga series by ONE and Yusuke Murata, the ‘One-Punch Man’ anime has enjoyed popularity with both Japanese and Western audiences and wrapped up its second season. Since then, fans are eagerly waiting to see Saitama in ‘One-Punch Man’ Season 3.
Well then, there is a piece of bad news for the diehard fans of the anime series. ‘One-Punch Man’ Season 3 will mostly deal with the Heroes Association launching an attack on their evil counterparts, with all the major S-class heroes infiltrating their hideout and engaging in one-on-one battles.
Season 3 is an action-packed affair with plenty of epic fight scenes. However, Saitama’s lack of screen time is set to continue and Genos may also be largely absent in the next season of ‘One-Punch Man’.
Though you will not see a lot of Saitama in the third season of ‘One-Punch Man’, you have every reason to watch the anime series for its fun-packed comedy. Though we get to see lesser and lesser of caped baldness, the series will ride on its trademark sense of humour.
Release date updates of ‘One-Punch Man’ Season 3
A post on the official ‘One-Punch Man’ Twitter account (translated via Comicbook) confirmed that a third season was being planned, but the release date remains a mystery.
There was a four-year gap between season 1 and season 2 that disappointed the fans. But, the delay was due to a change in the animation staff and switch in the studio. If the current team remains in place, ‘One-Punch Man’ will release by the mid-2021 most likely.
Fans want the old team of animation and have filed a petition for the same. If that happens, we can expect the release of ‘One-Punch Man’ Season 3 by 2022.
