The first season of One-Punch Man was produced by Madhouse and directed by Shingo Natsume, and the second season was produced by J.C.Staff and directed by Chikara Sakurai. VIZ Media publishes the manga series in English and Crunchyroll streams the anime, here’s the synopsis:
Saitama started out being a hero just for fun. After three years of “special” training, he became so powerful that he can defeat opponents with a single punch. Now, alongside Genos, his faithful cyborg disciple, Saitama is ready to begin his official duties as a professional hero working with the Hero Association.
However, the frequency of monster appearances is surging and it increasingly appears as if the Great Seer Madame Shibabawa’s prediction about the Earth’s doom is coming true. In the midst of this crisis, the “hero hunter” Garou makes his own appearance.
