One-Punch Man Season 2 will finally air next year and people simply can't stop talking about it. After all, the new season's synopsis and cast list confirm that Saitama will get to face Garou in 2019.
VIZ Media has announced that One-Punch Man Season 2 will premiere in April 2019. The post included the new teaser trailer. Interestingly, the video also includes the official synopsis for the second season.
"Saitama is a hero who only became a hero for fun. After three years of 'special training,' he's become so strong that he's practically invincible. In fact, he's too strong—even his mightiest opponents are taken out with a single punch. Now, the great seer Madame Shibabawa's prediction about the Earth being doomed seems to be coming true as the frequency of monster incidents escalates. Alongside Genos, his faithful disciple, Saitama begins his official hero duties as a member of the Hero Association, while Garou, a man utterly fascinated by monsters, makes his appearance."
Garou's appearance has already been confirmed. Nevertheless, the idea that the character was mentioned in the synopsis hints at how important he will be in the second season.
