In One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 01 (a.k.a., episode 13), "Return of the Hero," Saitama and Genos return to do super-powered stuff like shop for groceries. In fact, as they're out on just such a shopping trip, they see S-ranked hero named King. Civilians impressed with his feats are fawning all over him. Even Saitama is impressed that King has his own action figure. But when a super-powered villain shows up, Saitama is surprised to see how King reacts. Why did King rush to the restroom after negotiating a brief pause before combat starts? How long can Genos hold out against the super villain? And how harshly will Saitama judge King for his choice in video games?

Review: One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 02 – Best In Show

In One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 02 (a.k.a., episode 14), "The Human Monster," Saitama is playing a hand-held game he "borrowed" from King while Genos washes the dishes. Suddenly, Genos senses someone approaching and, not wanting to interrupt Saitama (who just overwrote King's saved game), he investigates. It's Speed-o'-Sound Sonic, back for revenge from the -- ahem! -- crushing defeat he suffered at Saitama's fist in the first season. Genos attacks to save Saitama the trouble, but Speed-o'-Sound Sonic is really, really fast. Meanwhile, Hellish Blizzard Fubuki, younger sister to the legendary Terrible Tornado Tatsumaki, shows up and tries to bully Saitama into joining her posse. Will Genos be able to actually strike his opponent? Will Fubuki get anywhere trying to bully Saitama? And how will King react when he learns Saitama erased his saved games?

Review: One Punch Man Episode Season 2 Episode 03 – Best In Show

In One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 03 (a.k.a., episode 15), "The Hunt Begins," Garou begins hunting heroes. It turns out he was a disciple of Bang, the hero otherwise known as Silver Fang, and Bang had kicked him out of the dojo because he was turning to evil. Trouble is, Garou had learned serious martial arts skills, and he used them to almost kill several prominent heroes, even the S-Class Tanktop Master. Garou even severely beat Mumen Rider after that C-Class hero stood up for him! Can any of the heroes stand against him? Even more concerning: Will Saitama be able to finish shopping unmolested?

Episode 4: The Metal Bat

Review: One Punch Man Episode Season 2 Episode 04 – Best In Show

In One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 04 (a.k.a., episode 16), "The Metal Bat," Garou's rein of terror continues because a) he can't remember what happened last night (when Saitama brushed him aside and nearly killed him) and b) no one else saw the encounter. The hero's Association pulls S-Class heroes from their jobs to protect the executives, because they're the ones who generate income. That's how Metal Bat gets assigned to protect an executive and his son. As the monster attacks on them escalate, Metal Bat needs to fight harder and harder until a Dragon-class monster arrives. Can Metal Bat fight it off? Will Garou interrupt the fight for his own purposes? Worst of all, will an ex-member of Bang's dojo recognize that Saitama's not who he's pretending to be?

Review: One Punch Man Episode Season 2 Episode 05 – Best In Show

In One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 05 (a.k.a., episode 17), "The Martial Arts Tournament," while Saitama good-naturedly endures slights and scorns from some of the martial arts contestants, Centichoro continues his rampage. But Centichoro is not alone. Score of other monsters have attacked the cities simultaneously, and the Hero Association finds itself on its heels. Can Metal Bat defeat Garou so he can get back to the Dragon class monster Centichoro? Or will he fall, like every other hero? Most importantly, will we finally get to see Saitama in action?

Episode 6: The Monster Uprising

Review: One Punch Man Episode Season 2 Episode 06 – Best In Show

In One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 06 (a.k.a., episode 18), "The Monster Uprising," our hero Saitama advanced to the next round of the martial arts tournament to face off against a two-time champion. His opponent was so feared that medics with a stretcher were standing by -- and you can probably guess who actually needed the stretcher after the match was over! Meanwhile, monsters continue to run rampant, and Genos, not wanting to interrupt his master's participation in the tournament, decided to go on the offensive. He did well until a threat appeared that not even his skills could contain. Finally, Fubuki was fighting a losing battle against Super S (Do-S). Can she hold her own? Will she have to call for backup? Or will backup call her?

Episode 7: The Class S Heroes

Review: One Punch Man Episode Season 2 Episode 07 – Best In Show

In One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 07 (a.k.a., episode 19), "The Class S Heroes," several S class heroes are trying to push back the growing monster flood. Some, like Tatsumaki the Terrible Tornado, we've met before; others, like Pig God, we're meeting for the first time. They are as powerful as they are arrogant (which is to say, very powerful), but can they stop the Monster Association's foot soldiers -- much less affect the Association on a strategic level? Meanwhile, Saitama makes it to the martial arts finals to face Suiryu, who is not only undefeated, but is practically untouched. Can Saitama keep his wig on? Most importantly, will he learn anything at all about martial arts?

Episode 8: The Resistance of the Strong

Review: One Punch Man Episode Season 2 Episode 08 – Best In Show

In One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 08 (a.k.a., episode 20), "The Resistance of the Strong," the Monster Association's plan marches inexorability forward. Goketsu, the monster that intruded on the martial arts tournament, gave the contestants a choice: Eat the monster cells and become monsters, or die. One by one, the remaining contestants tried to fight back -- and were smashed -- or gave into their fears. Suiryu attacked one of the new monsters and defeated it easily. Can he do as well against Goketsu? Or will Goketsu turn him into a smear on the broken pavement?

Will our title hero's streak of defeating opponents with a single punch remain intact -- or will something unspeakable happen? And if Saitama manages to defeat Bakuzan, what of the even more powerful Goketsu? Meanwhile, Garou attacks Watchdog-man. Will the poor loyal hero become another notch in Garou's belt?

Review: One Punch Man Episode Season 2 Episode 10 – Best In Show

In One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 10 (a.k.a., episode 22), "Justice under Siege," the Monster Association makes their move. They offer a faux-proposal to the Hero Association executives, but both sides are not negotiating in good faith. What's the Monster Association's real plan? What's the Hero Association intent? Meanwhile, Garou wakes up and wonders how King beat him so handily. He hides out to heal, but he didn't know Death Gatling saw him and formed a posse to come after him. Will a severely wounded Garou be able to defend himself against several strong heroes who are following a clear-headed, disciplined leader? And most importantly, will Saitama get the trash out in time for the trash truck?

In One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 11 (a.k.a., episode 23), "The Varieties of Pride," Death Gatling and several of his hand-picked buddies surrounded Garou. The villain was wounded; poison coursed  through his veins. He was barely able to stand. Yet, he remained defiant -- especially after Death Gatling and his A class heroes gave Garou a clue to a weakness of theirs -- a weakness he can exploit... Meanwhile, King tried to teach Saitama the finer points of video gaming, but Saitama's gaming skills seem inversely proportional to his hero skills. Finally, Genos received a powerful upgrade and got back into action. Will his upgrades be equal to his aspirations? Or will he end up back in the shop?

  1. Well, I still have to see the first season of this (yes I know, I am a terrible person ???) so I marked this page as to read, and will get back to it as soon as I can find some time to finally watch this series that everyone keeps telling me I should check out ?

    1. “so I marked this page as to read, and will get back to it ”

      Cool! I’d love to know your reaction!

      “as soon as I can find some time to finally watch this series that everyone keeps telling me I should check out”

      I enjoyed both seasons for slightly different reasons. I enjoyed it the most when I kept my expectations neutral. It’s not because the show isn’t good enough to live up to them, it’s because the show is its own animal, and it pretty much stays true to itself. Me expecting it to be something else got in the way of me liking the first few episodes.

      1. Well, that’s good to know, and I will definitely keep that in mind. I think this one will be up after I finished Black Lagoon, and March Comes in Like a Lion (the latter having been on my to watch list for ages ??). But thanks for the advice! Nonetheless I am looking forward to seeing it, and I will definitely let you know my thoughts ?

Please let me know what you think!
