The highly anticipated season 2 of hit animated series “One Punch Man” will reportedly introduce a slew of both new and old villains to challenge Saitama’s ability.
Reports claim that the protagonist’s triumph over Lord Boros in the freshman run does not necessarily mean that the latter has seen the last of him. Being the leader of the Dark Matter Thieves, Boros will not be taking the defeat easily. He is presumed to come back as a more powerful antagonist and will make it his goal to vanquish the hero.
According to iTech Post, when the two potentially face-off, fans may expect an intense battle to ensue between them as the narrative is deemed to be action-packed. The premiere episode titled “The First Hero” will apparently showcase the return of Boros.
Aside from Boros, Amai Mask and Garou may also take revenge due to the bitterness they are still carrying around with them. The latter is even predicted to be the person who can actually match the powerful punch of Saitama. But unlike him, Garou uses his strength for evil deeds. If this comes to fruition, fans have noted that the storyline will seemingly veer away from the original plot of the manga.
Meanwhile, Saitama may also have a new adventure which does not involve getting into a physical fight it is assumed that he will finally find a girl who makes his heart flutter. With a potential love interest, the storyline is said to become funnier and more entertaining for the viewers as the character may be someone from his past.
When it comes to the release date, there is hearsay stating the new episodes may arrive as early as this October. However, others believe there could be a delay until 2017 in order for the manga series to finish first. Since there is no official announcement yet, available information should be taken with a grain of salt.
