Story:

Saitama is a hero who only became a hero for fun. After three years of “special training,” he’s become so strong that he’s practically invincible. In fact, he’s too strong—even his mightiest opponents are taken out with a single punch. Now, the great seer Madame Shibabawa’s prediction about the Earth being doomed seems to be coming true as the frequency of monster incidents escalates. Alongside Genos, his faithful disciple, Saitama begins his official hero duties as a member of the Hero Association, while Garou, a man utterly fascinated by monsters, makes his appearance.

This announcement trailer is not really considered new. It’s basically a recut version of what Bandai Namco released back in August but this version gives us a rundown of some characters including Speed-o-Sound Sonic, Garou, “Shadowy Man who confronts the heroes”, and Saitama’s cyborg sidekick, Genos.

One-Punch Man Season 2 is set to premiere in April 2019.
