If they have already licensed it, and the first episode is being screened in August, a Fall 2018 release seems likely.

It won't be a Netflix exclusive, the license includes streaming.

Please tell me this means, that we will have the dub while the original is still airing

...and Latin America, since Viz Media doesn't work with Crunchyroll. The most probably is that OPM S2 ends broadcasting on Netflix.

I'm hopeful that the dub will still be produced after the season has finished, so that it can get the time and effort that season 1 dub got.

thats kinda worrying, cause it looks like J.C. Staff is putting there big animators on "angels of death" this summer, and that might affect One-punch man's quality if its airing so soon after... though if they outsource the animators to the same animators that worked on season one then I guess it wouldn't affect it that much.

Nice troll. I would put my bet on a weekly Hulu stream, but that only covers the US, so I’m not sure where they would stream it internationally.

I would imagine the dub will probably be on Toonami sometime later on.

Yeah. Season one was simulcast on Daisuki. We may have a problem here.

Some of Viz's simulcasts have streamed on Tubi in addition to Hulu. Of course, I've got no idea on what other regions they cover beyond Canada and the US.

Tubi has some anime outside Canada and the US, but not Viz anime.

More concerning should be the fact that Viz picked up this season's Captain Tsubasa for streaming (including European rights) and have yet to find a place to stream it.

Still, look on the bright side, if OPM season 2 doesn't stream anywhere we can't be disappointed by it.

I think it would be more correct to say that they are in no hurry whatsoever in their negotiations. Look at how long it took for cartoon network (or televisa here in mexico) to add Dragonball Super to their lineup. Simulcast and cable/TV broadcast have totally different speed gears.

AoA did itt with DRRR's 2nd-4th seasons. Sentai Filmworks is just starting out with this approach and Funi has the practice down to a science. I am curious if Viz is willing to try the simuldub route.

You guys really think it will be on Netflix!? Hahahaha!! I'm thinking Viz will finally do a simuldub, and it will end up on Toonami just like it's predecessor!
