    Yep you read it right, it's coming.
    This Sunday. 12 August 2018...
    One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 1 is coming. Premiere. Screening in Japan. (those blessed ninja will find their way)


    BUT... and it is a big BUTT (coughs)

    The rest of the episodes for the season will not come out until 2020...
    Yeah. The full thing won't come out until 2020, only episode 1 will come this year.

    Which sucks. (Remember the time gap before Attack on Titan had a second season?)

    :blobmelt:

    Welp that's all the news. Here the source :
    • It's an 8 minute video but all the important info is already typed out up there.
    Guess we will find out this Sunday whether it's all a lie or the truth told early.
    Any insiders who wants to chime in? :blobpeek:

    J.C Staff once announced about a year ago that they were already in production on the first episode.
    It's been a year, that episode is not out yet.

    I'm co-director from JC Staff, the reason why did it take so long is that Murata art is so damn beautiful that our animators can hardly imitate it, those guys from from Madhouse refuse to share tips how they did it. Assholes. After 3 years of animating, we can only produce 8 minutes episode. 2020 would be the year we release the second episode. Expect episode 3 in 2022, 4 in 2024. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    One Episode Man (!?)

    To be honest, I don't even know why would they bother showing this one episode (unless it was a full 90-minute movie or longer) that nobody would even remember by the time the season comes out in 2020.

    My goodness. If it's going to take that long... Rather than fan interest dying, I'm more concerned about your budget dying.

    The video is slooow, especially to go to the important part.. I watched it 25% faster and it sounded normal :blobtriumph:, he repeated himself way to much to make a longer video...
    The fact that it would be long before we could see the second season of OPM was a given if they wanted to make a show at least visually on par with the first one, and I'm perfectly fine with it as long as the quality is there when I watch it (way better than this shoddy low cost animation clashing with normal keyframes or still scenes that a lot of the jump neverending shonens are spamming nowadays :blob_coughblood: ).

    I will just wait till August 12th for the answer. Don't really care about those speculations that made them seem like they are prophets:blobtriumph:
    People said that the guy that made the videos also has plenty of times he predicted wrong, but he deleted them right away when the truths were told, so he only left behind the corrected videos. So really, don't blindly believe internet news that has No Source for backing it up.:blobexpressionless:
    (It's even more annoying since I'm an admin in a OPM group on FB after all...:blobexpressionless: )

    Cost our producing animation is ridiculous. Given that most don't pay and slavery in the anime industry is getting frowned upon and young adults are choosing more rewarding professions, it will only get worse.
    The obsession with only respecting people with 20 years experience to be in charge of projects just makes it worse.
    Unless American companies start financing anime, the future is bleak.
    Chinese companies are more likely to finance anime adapted from Chinese content.
    We are screwed...please don't say streaming is paying for continent. If you learn the process involved in producing one scene of one punch man, you would be ashamed to brag about your crunchyroll membership.
    I learnt a lot from the Canipa Effect. I recommend that awesome YouTube channel



    Until animation becomes a viable profession, we will have to keep dealing with crap like this.
    CGI like Ajinn are not so bad to be fair, beats waiting 6 years for season 2 lol
    My dream is to produce animation someday. For now I will settle for comics. Maybe motion comics or Visual Novels next year.
    We are responsible for this crap to an extent with our free free mentality
    Cheers!

    This is true :blob_grin:

    I used to work partime in JC staff and I have seen @R0 open his account when I passed by his office

    It’s not for sure, I had a fall out with the stupid director.. I wanted to cut some scenes where my bald spot was too shiny but he wouldn’t agree! It’s up to the money people now...
