One Punch Man has a brilliant artwork

The Manga series’ artist recently exposed that the series is about to complete its original run and since then there has been a rage about its ending that has taken over the Anime or Manga world.

If you’re curious to know more about One Punch Man Manga’s ending, then you’ve come to the right place.

In this article, I’ll be discussing all aspects related to this Manga series’ ending and we’ll also gain an insight into whether this series will have the next season or not.

So let’s get right to it!

What is One Punch man manga?

ONE developed the webcomic, manga, and anime series One Punch Man. The webcomic debuted in July 2009, with over 100 million incremental views and 20,000 daily visitors.

One Punch Man lives the life of an ordinary hero, winning all of his conflicts with a single punch! This is why he’s known as Onepunch Man Manga. This story takes place in the fictitious city of Z-City.

How many hits did One-Punch Man have?

Following its release, the webcomic soon became viral, with 7.9 million views in June 2012.

Saitama, a superhero who can defeat any opponent with a single punch, seeks a suitable opponent after becoming bored with a lack of challenge in his fight against evil, is the subject of One-Punch Man.

One-Punch Man is based on a manga, however, the manga is treated differently than in other series, most notably by having three separate versions. This is an explanation of how everything works, including which manga to read.

Is the One Punch Man Manga ending?

The fan base of One Punch Man has been in a heated debate over whether the series is about to end soon or not. This is because the artist, Yusuke Murata, tweeted about the ending of the popular Manga.

The idea of this Manga ending isn’t too unbelievable either, because the series finally ended the longest-running arc through the biggest fight between Saitama and Garou.

However, this news has yet to be confirmed by officials. Fans are suspicious because the artist used the word series instead of serialization like normally mangakas do when referring to Manga serialization.

Moreover, ending the series right now wouldn’t make sense because there would then be many loose ends in the story.

Plus the Manga series has also given a lot of hints on things that are yet to come in the series. These foreshadowing can become arcs on their own, meaning that there is much room left for more content.

In an interview, Murata also made it clear that he was referring only to the Garou arc’s ending and not the whole Manga series.

This indicates that the series is still running and there is potential for future content. So now you don’t need to worry about the Manga ending soon!

What rank is Saitama at the end of the Manga?

Saitama, the superhero of the One Punch Man Manga series, is currently at B-class rank 7. In the original webcomic, he’s ranked A-class 39th after the battle with the Monster Association.

Although Saitama was recognized as a strong fighter, he still had a long way to go before he was able to use his full power while fighting.

Saitama is the main protagonist of the series and is known to be the most powerful being in the series as well. He is unable to be defeated by any of his opponents but this makes him bored as he gains no thrill by always winning his fights.

He later joined the Hero Association to become a professional hero. Under this association, he’s called by the name “Caped Baldy” and is a B-class rank 7.

He is the strongest character in the story since he is not weak to anything or anyone.

Saitama has many abilities, for instance, unparalleled physical prowess and supernatural reflexes as well as senses. He isn’t vulnerable to anything or anyone which is why he’s known as the strongest person in the series.

Here’s a table listing basic facts related to Saitama in One Punch Man:

This is all you need to know about the character of Saitama before you begin the series!

Who is Blast OPM?

Blast, also known as Burasuto, in One Punch Man is the S-class rank 1 professional hero from the Hero Association. Besides Saitama, he is known to be the most powerful hero present in this Association.

Saitama only needs one punch to defeat Blast.

One of his hobbies is collecting Mysterious Cubes and often he can be seen going to various places to collect them.

Not everyone is allowed talk to him and there are only a few selected members of the association that can communicate with him. Blast can create portals and has superhuman physical prowess.

Although he is regarded as the strongest as well as the most powerful hero in the association and is even higher in rank, he’s still not stronger than Saitama. Saitama can defeat Blast by just one punch.

However, both the characters are very similar. Blast hasn’t actually been shown in the MangaManga or Anime series.

For this reason, there have been many theories in place that state that both the characters, Saitama and Blast, are the same. However, there’s no evidence or concrete facts which can prove this to be true.

Moreover, Blast has only been seen in flashbacks or silhouettes. However, in the latest chapter, Blast recently appears and in the process, he also meets Saitama. This also proves that they both aren’t the same.

Will One Punch Man have season 3?

Yes, it has been confirmed that One Punch Man will have a season 3.

After a long break, the production has finally begun and season three of the Anime series is expected to be released in November 2022.

However, the series was paused for a long time and the artist tweeted saying: “Thank you for your patience“. This indicates that it’ll take a while before season 3 comes out. This Japanese Anime series has gained a lot of attention and a positive response from the audience.

Moreover, season 3 of this series has been taken over by a new studio. Originally, One Punch Man was produced by Madhouse. In season 2, it was taken over by J.C. Staff studio.

Season 3 of One Punch Man is likely to be the 85th chapter in terms of its Manga. It’ll be quite some time before season three releases. If you can’t wait, then you can read ahead in the Manga to find out what happens next!

As far as its Manga is concerned, the publication was at a halt but it resumed in 2019 after a two-year-long hiatus. Up until now, the webcomic has released 172 chapters of this Manga series.
