What is Happening to One Punch Man?

  • katma 23 Mar 2019
  • One Punch Man Season 2 is right around the corner, and it's looking... kinda terrible? What the heck happened in the last three years to make the Hero for a Hobby fall so far from grace?

    He was right, the trailer gave a very clear impression of the quality of season 2, and he didn't watch it (or at least made videos about) .

    Judging the season before the finishing touches is a little harsh. We all know that OPM is under a new development team and that should be troublesome especially when you are transitioning animator to copy an art style on a different scale then your previous work. Plus they were trying so hard to replicate the manga format but animation quality is not on par with the previous season, that much was a let down. Quality is essential and that much I can agree upon but remember this is not Madhouse that animated this season but rather smaller animation studio.

    For those who are hating so bad on season 2 I personally enjoyed it it was faithful to the manga and season 3 that should lead up to the monsters Association is going to be amazing so just stop hating and joy what's to come.

      @Richard Reese yeah but season 2 shouldve had better pacing i n introducing those characters i bearley know half of their origins. They do much diservice to Garou. They rush through why he hates heroes

      @litty committee I understand what you're saying but season 2 was more predicated on showing you more Heroes that you didn't see in the first season or further flush out and explain more of the S rank A rank B rank heroes that's supposed to lead up to the monsters Association battle vest to come in season 3 so between Garo and the Martial Arts Tournament that saitama participated in that was the major highlights of this season

      Being faithful to a manga doesnt make it good. Pacing, art, animation, or storytelling. Everything goes into that went adapting a manga. Anime is suppose to increase the experience not downgrade. You can compare scenes and see for yourself. It doesnt do it justice.

    this is why the new studio is getting little by little below expectations for what this great anime manga based could be.

Animation is off, but im into the story and humor. I wait anxiously every Tuesday for a new episode. Im excited and happy for this season and seriously if people truly have a problem now, don't watch it. It happens, I've seen good shows turn to crap and oh well. Get over it.

This show has been thrashed with a huge injustice, I am no longer excited for the next episode as now even the scenes with fucking Saitama are fucking scrub. This animation is so bad I actually would rather read the manga. I've never read manga but a friend loaned me Season 1 manga and the art and stuff was very good. I'd rather read the Manga than witness this embarrassment.

    The freelancers at Madhouse are some of the best animators in the world. I hear they did not want to do One Punch Man again, but whatever project they decided to do, I'd love to know what it is. I bet it looks just as amazing as One Punch Man.
    But yeah, my expectations for One Punch Man definitely got shot down. All of my friends actually agree the second season looks fine, which is why I sometimes dislike noticing stuff like this. I wish I could just blindly enjoy it like they do. It seems their allure toward the series was more so because of its charm, rather than its finer detail. Which isn't a bad thing.
    JCS has, so far, produced one episode of comparable animation quality. I am only hoping for the best as we approach the final fights. The last one should for sure rival Madhouse at worst and surpass it at best. But, my hopes for the latter are very, very low. Even a bit at the former. Though, you're right in that they've made great anime. High Score Girl is one of my most recent favorites from them.
    Still, I love this series a lot for how it manages to handle the fighting. Making the main character the most powerful is absurd, but unique. And it always makes you look forward to how they're going to use him. I only wish the best for One Punch Man. If another season is made, it should have much better overall animation quality.
    Also, I completely forgot how amazing the soundtrack was in the first season. Hearing that piano song in the video really brought back some amazing memories.

    Yo, Mother's Basement, so how in the holy hell do you justify saying manga has animation? Manga, just like comic books, is a collection of still images that tell a story. Animation implies that there is movement that you can see without it being implied. Manga doesn't do that because it can't. At best it implies movement but, again by the definition, that isn't animation.

    What a bunch of fucking manchildren you all are. You are not entitled to animation of unreasonable expectations, MadHouse are magicians that somehow make money off what should be unreasonable animation budgets, OPM2 is actually 'normal' good animation.
    If you watch OPM solely for the animation, go dive in a dumpster fire. The fucking source material relishes in it's fucking awful art.
