Saitama deserves a big break…
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 have 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.
The main illustrator of the manga, Yūsuke Murata, on Thursday announced on his Twitter account that One-Punch Man will be on hiatus for about a month, before returning with a new bow. Staff will announce the return date as soon as it is decided the time is right.
次回 から シリーズ な んです が 、 これ から 向け て １ ヶ月 お休み を いただき ます。 エピソード の 掲載 予定 日 は 決まり 次第 告知 を さ せ て て いただき ます ので よろしく お願い 致し ます。。

The message that Yusuke Murata gave to his fans reads as follows: “Next time we will start a new saga in the series, but i’m going to take a break for about a month from now before i continue. We will notify you as soon as the scheduled release date of the new episode is decided.” Viz Media has been releasing the series digitally in its Weekly Shonen Jump manga anthology.
Yūsuke Murata and ONE launched the One-Punch Man manga on Shueisha’s “Tonari no Young Jump” free website in 2012.. The series is a remake of ONE’s original web manga of the same name. Shueisha published the manga’s 26th compiled book volume on June 3. Viz Media published the manga’s 23rd volume in October 2021.
The first season of the anime adaptation of the manga aired in Japan from October to December 2015.. Viz Media and Daisuki streamed the series outside of Japan as it aired. The anime premiered with an English dub on Adult Swim’s Toonami block in July 2016. Viz Media released the first season on home video in North America.
As we mentioned, this chapter closes the Saga of the Monsters that could arrive in the Third Season of One-Punch Man, however its length and the type of illustrations made by Yusuke Murata raise many doubts about the materialization of this assignment. Not only because we will see the evolution of Saitama and Garou, who will take the place of the “hero hunter”, but because it could reach a much larger scale than the Studio Bones team is used to.
One-Punch Man announces its third season
One-Punch Man Season 3 Coming 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.
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 streaming, 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.
