I won't envy the studio that gets this and has to animate the last few chapters of the manga, because YEESH!

That's great news! I wonder which studio will animate the 3rd season? From the looks of it, it doesn't seem to be JC Staff.

If this season isn't done by Madhouse, I won't riot, but a lot of people will.

Always happy to see Kubota get more work. Met him years ago at a convention and he is one of the more talented artists that I have met.

Oh god, please don't let Viz media license this again. With how they've sold away Bleach to Disney, there's no doubt they'll do the same with this.

News flash: Disney+ already airs a bunch of anime. It's only in Japan. People are losing it over this, but I seriously doubt Disney+ will air bleach in the USA(the demographics don't even remotely align). It'll be on Netflix or CR most likely. I am leaning more toward Netflix due to JYB now mostly taking those roles.

Do we live in a merciful enough universe to get Shingo Natsume & co. back?

This is gonna be the most boring season of OPM, since the amount of fights there is gonna be in season 3, is ki9nda small, and Saitama ain't gonna have a big fight at all. But if they skip most of the story and fights from the manga, it's not gonna make any sense since most of the fights, thats gonna be in S3, is not all that interresting.

So far there's been no official word on Disney+ having sublicensed the simulcast rights from Viz, and it's more than likely just a rumor (the "leakers" who "reported" that on social media likely misunderstood that it will probably be streaming on Disney+ in Japan, which is nothing out of the ordinary as they have tons of other titles on there like My Hero Academia).

So it and One Punch Man 3 will probably be business as usual with simulcasts on Crunchyroll and the dubs premiering on Adult Swim and/or Crunchy at some point.

I hated the last season so much, that I didn't bother finishing it because of how terrible the animation was.

If Madhouse isn't doing this season (or at the least a much better studio tha JC Staff), I don't see myself caring about another season of this show.

I wouldn't put that much stock in this visual. Season 2's visual looked as good as this and we ended up with a dogshit second season.

I mean, naturally MAPPA will be handling season three since they're currently animating everything else ever.

As amazing as season one was I won't be too bothered if Madhouse doesn't animate three as long as whoever animates it does a better showing than two was. My understanding is that season 2 was a story created for the serialized manga and wasn't in the webcomic - is this season back to webcomic canon, in theory?

The manga is canon and even if it weren't that isn't why s2 was as bad as it was

Are people forgetting in what state modern Madhouse is? Natsume's projects were the only stand out ones and his current project is at another studio anyway.

Exactly. Madhouse would be worth it, only if Natsume and his book of friends make a comeback.
