Simulcast begins on April 10

Animax Asia announced on Friday that it will air a simulcast of the second season of the One-Punch Man anime. The simulcast will premiere on April 10 at 10:30 p.m. GMT +8.

The anime will premiere with a television special on TV Tokyo, TV Osaka, and TV Aichi on April 2. The anime's website describes the April 2 airing in Japan as the "broadcast premiere commemorative special."

The main cast members are reprising their roles in the second season:

In addition, Hikaru Midorikawa will play the character Garou, and Masaya Matsukaze will play Suiryū.

Chikara Sakurai (Magimoji Rurumo, episode director for Naruto Shippūden) is replacing Shingo Natsume to direct the season at J.C. Staff (Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma, Children of the Whales). Madhouse animated the first season.

Yoshikazu Iwanami (Girls und Panzer, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure) is replacing Shōji Hata as sound director. Chikashi Kubota (Corpse Princess: Aka, FLCL 2) is returning to design the characters, and Tomohiro Suzuki (ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept.) is again in charge of series composition. Makoto Miyazaki (Triage X, Dragon Crisis!) is also returning to compose the music. JAM Project is once again performing the opening theme song "Seijaku no Apostle." Makoto Furukawa, the voice actor for protagonist Saitama, will perform the ending theme song "Chizu ga Nakutemo Modoru kara" (Even Without a Map, I'll Return).

Madhouse and director Shingo Natsume's first 12-episode anime season based on ONE and Yūsuke Murata's One-Punch Man manga aired in Japan from October-December 2015. Animax Asia aired the anime in Southeast Asia in September 2016, and the now-defunct Daisuki streaming service also offered the anime in selected Asian countries.
