Anime News:

The greatest hero nobody knows is returning for a third season! One Punch Man is getting a third season, though fans of the series are already well aware of the spotty history the adaptation has had. Originally animated by Madhouse, it was then moved to J.C Staff for season two. It is currently unknown who is working on this third season, or when we should expect it to be released, but we did receive a key visual for the announcement.

Another franchise with an uncertain history also got confirmed for a follow-up too! After the tragic loss of Yūshi Suzuki, the first season’s original director, EDENS ZERO has been confirmed to be getting a second season in 2023. Not much else is known about the project, but we did get a teaser image for the new season.

While Overlord is currently in the midst of its fourth season, we just got some brand news regarding the franchise’s first film that was teased last year! The film will be adapting the Holy Kingdom Arc, and released the first teaser image of the film. Other than that, we have no clue about the film’s staff or release date as of now.
