It seems that Murata and ONE have finally recovered from the last battle…
After the grand finale that has meant the end of the monster saga and the battle between Saitama and Garou, it seems that its main author and illustrator had decided to take a short break. If you want to read or revisit the adventures of the strongest hero in his universe, we recommend doing so through the online service VIZ Average. Fortunately, it seems that their break has paid off and they are ready to continue with the adventures of Saitama and company.
According to Yusuke Murata, the manga’s official artist, he has enjoyed his break and is ready to get back to work. This was published in social networks for your fans who have been waiting for his return. The artist will reportedly bring One-Punch Man back with a new chapter on September 22. This comes after Murata and ONE, the writer of this manga, announced their short break in mid-August with the end of the Garou arc.

Of course, fans are eager to see where One-Punch Man goes next, and finally Murata will solve these kinds of unknowns. After all, the manga is based on ONE’s manga, and the webcomic is continuing despite its current hiatus. The original series has several story arcs endorsed by Murata to adapt, and of course the artist takes license in inking the manga. He and ONE have worked to expand One-Punch Man in various ways for those who read his story in both versions. Then, when Murata returns, you can expect the talented artist to be at his best.
This work has also made headlines a few weeks ago when the news was published that the third season of the anime is finally coming. The long-awaited update was met with a lot of talk, and things only got louder when the manga went on hiatus. Creator Yusuke Murata told fans that he needed a break after finishing Garou’s big arc, since it took him years to do it. And according to a new report, it appears that One-Punch Man has found a return window.
One-Punch Man announces its third season
For its part, the third season of One-Punch Man will arrive very soon, this announcement was revealed by the creator himself, ONE, and the illustrator Yusuke Murata. Since we learned that Mob Psycho 100 will have a third season, both the fandom and the specialized critics had suspected that the continuation of Saitama’s story was inevitable. That said, there is no final date for her return yet, so we can wait a couple of months or years before we see her.
As we mentioned, this news was shown in chapter 215 of ONE and Yūsuke Murata’s One-Punch Man manga. To celebrate this important announcement, Chikashi Kubota (https://onepunchman-anime.net/news/archives/4367), the character designer for the first and second seasons of the anime, drew the following promotional image for the third seasonwhich could lead us to think that Studio Bones will continue to be the team in charge:
Getting to this point in the series hasn’t been easy. the second season started with a TV special in April 2019, then the first episode premiered a week later. Viz Media acquired the license for the second anime season, including digital broadcast, telecast, electronic direct sales, home media, and merchandising rights for North America, Latin America, and Oceania. Since its last chapter, there had been a great silence regarding what would happen to the franchise. Now, there are new doubts about the adaptation that the Monster Saga will have in the third season of One-Punch Man.
The most recent chapter of One-Punch Man officially put an end to one of their most important fights, and with it, the series will officially culminate the Garou saga after seven long years of serialization! The Human Monster Saga has been the longest running single arc in Yusuke Murata’s illustrated version of the ONE webcomic to date, what now generates a great expectation among the fandom of his adventures.
