Currently, there’s no word yet on which studio will animate the series. Though there have been some reports by leakers on Twitter that One-Punch Man Season 3 will be animated by a new studio.

Based on the announcement, some fans have speculated that BONES (the studio behind My Hero Academia and Mob Psycho 100) will take over the anime’s production.

For reference, the first season was made by Madhouse while season 2 was made by J.C. Staff. In particular, the second season wasn’t rated highly by fans, especially when compared to season 1.

One-Punch Man is an anime series based on the manga series of the same name by ONE. The series started as a webcomic by ONE back in 2009 and was subsequently adapted into a manga by Shueisha for Weekly Young Jump.

The series follows Saitama, a powerful hero who trained every day for three years to become a pro hero. In his world, monsters wreak havoc on the Earth, and to defend against these, the Hero Association is formed.

While unassuming, Saitama is an incredibly strong hero that can beat pretty much every enemy with just one punch.
