  • One Punch Man Season 2 is right around the corner, and it's looking... kinda terrible? What the heck happened in the last three years to make the Hero for a Hobby fall so far from grace?

    In other words.. the continuity of One Piece reigns supreme over morons who just watch 12 episode anime and just give up..
    Too bad One Piece has 900+ episodes and 1000+ chapters.. sucks to suck OPM fanboys

    Jesus christ, give it a rest. I watched the entirety of season two, and I thought it was great. I thoroughly enjoyed the sound design and animation style. I loved it. Slightly different art style? Get over it. It still looks amazing.

    The moment I saw the first episode of the show, I knew that this show wont survive 20+ episodes.

    1-3 episode director and 1-5 animation director in one episode if you think there's nothing wrong right there than there's something wrong with you
    This is from one punch man official site btw
    I don't even want to talk about the mess in episode 20 the staff list in that episode is a disaster

    ya its true...the comic FarRRrr more better! every time could felt the thrilled each time i read it...but the animation felt off soooo many important moved off or skip..tthe hell plss fixed it...we all love one punch man...don't Ruined it!!!!

    THATNEGUS KING 2 months ago

    Literally the only thing I've seen in Season 2s defence is "The story is better"... Who cares when the animation is a strobe light slide show with static blurring visuals? Then they never flow into the new angles they just change perspective out of no where. So the action is hard asf to follow at times. They even skip showing us actual fights at times to save animation time I guess. This is an anime that made Saitama vs Geno's, Saitama vs Boros, Geno's Vs Deep Sea King, Geno's Vs Mosquito. EVERY SINGLE FIGHT from season one was some epic shit... This one.... Saitama punched a huge bug..... Wowwwwwwwww
    Edit: Also not tryna argue. It's my opinion. Don't like it keep scrolling.

    Not gonna lie. I saw the entire season and not gonna lie. The animation isnt AS bad as what the community says it does. But it is definitely lackluster. I do love it. But i was a little scared back before the first episode released. I was scared i wouldnt enjoy it. I did enjoy it. And i am happy i saw it. The only anime i ever watched subbed because i have been waiting for so long for season 2.

    ignas 1011001 2 months ago

    for me animation was not the problem , the big problem was how they started milking scene at moment i almost felt like watching dragon ball when in one episode characters stand in one place and just talk to each other , anime lost it tempo for some action you had to wait 2 episodes of face focus on 2 characters that was biggest let down for me anime progression dropped by 500% percent became stagnant

    Fans : we want season 2
    Producer : fine we have the source material but the director shingo natsume is busy
    Fans : we want season 2
    Producer : ALRIGHT! FINE we're gonna hire different director
    Fans : WTF IS THIS?
    me: well what do you expect?
    Rushed anime always bad

  • Deadlockoriginalfilms2.0

    It still baffels the mind Nobody in the RU-clip anime comunity had the self reflection skills to realise whining about the extremely minor animation quality differences, in an adaptation of a manga that got widespread acclaim INSPITE of the fact the artist was terrible at drawing;
    Could make them look really really stupid and childish and superficial :o
    One punch man was an inspirational story of people looking past the faults in the authors style to appreciate the comedy and storytelling, and thus all the critics on youtube could pat themselves on the back feel good about this story of perseverance and success because they didn't personally have to take part in reading the shitty looking manga, only for those same people to freak the fuck out and not be able to suspend THEIR prejiduces in turn, when the comedy action cartoon didn't have theatrical quality animation
    mothers bacement always has dumb takes but its like... why was this person even watching one punch man to begin with? :o
    It's like if somebody spoke as though they were a hardcore Naruto fan that understood the core themes of the series, but got all mad and asked "whats all this gay shit about redemption and tragic backstories wheres all the murder just fuckin kill sauske bro" aack i dunno cx

    Another youtube video shitting on something. Wish all you guys would just fuck off and get a real job. You know..contribute something to society other than videos complaining about things other people make. Heres an idea - why don't you go and make your own anime series? You seem to act like you know a lot about it. Let me know how that turns out.

    He was right, the trailer gave a very clear impression of the quality of season 2, and he didn't watch it (or at least made videos about) .

    Judging the season before the finishing touches is a little harsh. We all know that OPM is under a new development team and that should be troublesome especially when you are transitioning animator to copy an art style on a different scale then your previous work. Plus they were trying so hard to replicate the manga format but animation quality is not on par with the previous season, that much was a let down. Quality is essential and that much I can agree upon but remember this is not Madhouse that animated this season but rather smaller animation studio.

    For those who are hating so bad on season 2 I personally enjoyed it it was faithful to the manga and season 3 that should lead up to the monsters Association is going to be amazing so just stop hating and joy what's to come.

    • litty committee
      litty committee 3 months ago

      @Richard Reese yeah but season 2 shouldve had better pacing i n introducing those characters i bearley know half of their origins. They do much diservice to Garou. They rush through why he hates heroes

    • Richard Reese
      Richard Reese 3 months ago

      @litty committee I understand what you're saying but season 2 was more predicated on showing you more Heroes that you didn't see in the first season or further flush out and explain more of the S rank A rank B rank heroes that's supposed to lead up to the monsters Association battle vest to come in season 3 so between Garo and the Martial Arts Tournament that saitama participated in that was the major highlights of this season

    • litty committee
      litty committee 3 months ago

      Being faithful to a manga doesnt make it good. Pacing, art, animation, or storytelling. Everything goes into that went adapting a manga. Anime is suppose to increase the experience not downgrade. You can compare scenes and see for yourself. It doesnt do it justice.

    this is why the new studio is getting little by little below expectations for what this great anime manga based could be.
    I think a terrible thing is to eliminate scenes that are not even considered worthy to be censored.
    Please, why?

      No it still would considering there are better animes than whatever you can call season 2

  • genocide
    genocide 3 months ago +1

    lets be real here the animation isnt actually bad BUTTT but we as fans expect more from the new season because the old one was one of the best animmations in anime if not the best wait no but still if the season 1 wasnt made good quality thennnn noone would be complaining right?

    I think with videos like this that over analyze things it just makes people want to hate it more. I loved season 1. So far, over 10 eps into season 2 I'm fine with it. Animation is off, but im into the story and humor. I wait anxiously every Tuesday for a new episode. Im excited and happy for this season and seriously if people truly have a problem now, don't watch it. It happens, I've seen good shows turn to crap and oh well. Get over it.
