A bit of bad news for all you fans of ridiculously over-powered super heroes: the Japanese home video release of the second season of One-Punch Man, which was scheduled to begin publication in August of 2019, has been pushed back by two months.

 

In an official statement on the One-Punch Man TV anime home page, the production staff cites "various difficulties", apologizes to fans for the delay, and asks for their continued support.

Based on the original manga by One and Yusuke Murata, the second season of One-Punch Man is directed by Chikara Sakurai and features animation production by J.C. Staff. The series is currently streaming on Hulu, who describe the series as follows:

 

Saitama only became a hero for fun, but after three years of “special” training, he finds that he can beat even the mightiest opponents with a single punch. Though he faces new enemies every day, it turns out being devastatingly powerful is actually kind of a bore. Can a hero be too strong?
