'One Punch Man' season 2 rumors: Anime release date earlier than expected
Non-Japanese speaking fans of "One Punch Man" may have a reason to celebrate now as it has been reported that the English-dubbed of the anime series' first season will be finally shown on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim Toonami block. As if this piece of news weren't good enough, it is also alleged that the anime's season 2 will be released earlier.
According to reports, it is possible for "One Punch Man" season 2 to get an earlier release, depending on how the viewers will receive its English-dubbed first season on the Cartoon Network. Allegedly, it might be released earlier than October, which is rumored to be the original release date of "One Punch Man" season 2.
It is expected that the decision to show the English-dubbed season 1 of "One Punch Man" on the Cartoon Network will prompt the show to broaden its audience share and popularity in the global market as the series already has a wide following, despite it being dubbed in Japanese only originally. Hence, to say that the show will be a hit even to its first-time would-be viewers on the Cartoon Network would be an understatement.
However, given that the anime will, indeed, be a hit among the Cartoon Network viewers, it is still no guarantee that "One-Punch Man" season 2 will be released earlier. After all, even the alleged October release date is an unconfirmed piece of information.
Meanwhile, as the release date of "One Punch Man" season 2 is still up in the air, rumors on how the upcoming season may pan out continue to surface to fill the gap. According to another report, the season 2 might just pick up from the cliffhanger of the season 1 finale, wherein Saitama and Lord Boros engaged in a match. Reportedly, fans of the series can expect a rematch between the two as they try to prove their respective supremacy.
Unfortunately, fans can only wait for "One Punch Man" season 2 to start airing, in order to confirm whether this will be the case or not. As to when exactly, fans can only wait and see.
Meanwhile, the English-dubbed season 1 of "One Punch Man" is scheduled to air on the Cartoon Network this July 16.
