So, mark your calendars! August is going to be a big month for you Heroes Association otakus.

One, Hikaru Hidorikawa has been cast as Garou in the anime. The voice actor will make his One Punch Man debut with the role. As for the second piece, the anime’s social media pages confirmed a One Punch Man anime event will take place on August 12 with the release date of season 2 of One Punch Man coming in September 2018.
The gathering, which is being called ‘One Punch Man Maji Gakuensai,’ is bound to have a trailer or teaser of some sort. Anime events like this tend to tease the next steps for an anime, so if worst comes to worst, fans will get a premiere date at the summertime event.
This is not the first teaser fans have gotten in regards to One Punch Man’s season two trailer. Not long ago, the anime’s character designer made an appearance at a convention where he jokingly touched upon the reel. When a fan asked Chikashi Kubota about his on-going projects, the artist nodded to both his work on FLCL and One Punch Man.
For those unfamiliar with One Punch Man, the series follows Saitama, a regular working Joe who one day puts a stop to a violent villain attack. After this fight Saitama is inspired to become a hero. Training his body hard everyday, he’s eventually granted with extreme strength. Looking for a worthy opponent, Saitama joins the Hero Association in the hopes of fighting them. But every fight he gets into ends after a single punch! Forced to wander through life increasingly bored of his supreme power, Saitama has become hilariously disconnected with the world of action around him.
