The second season of One Punch Man adds Hikaru Midorikawa to his cast

The official website of the animated television adaptation of the One Punch Man manga by ONE and Yuusuke Murata has revealed that Hikaru Midorikawa will be the one to give voice to the character Garou in the second season of the anime. Garou is a hunter who is fascinated by monsters and Midorikawa will also give voice to the character in the One Punch Man Maji CD Drama & Song that will be released on June 20, before the premiere of the anime.

The One Punch Man Maji Gakuensai event was also announced, which will be held on August 12 at the Omiya Sonic City in Saitama. Several members of the cast will participate in the event with the musical group JAM Project, namely Makoto Furukawa, Kaito Ishikawa, Yuuki Kaji, Hiroki Yasumoto, Masaya Onosaka, Toshiki Masuda and Hikaru Midorikawa.


Chikara Sakurai (director of episodes in Naruto Shippuden) will replace Shingo Natsume as director to direct the series under J.C. Staff The first season was produced by the Madhouse studio. Yoshikazu Iwanami (Girls und Panzer) will be the sound director replacing Shoji Hata. Chikashi Kubota (Corpse Princess) will again be the character designer and Tomohiro Suzuki will be in charge of the scripts again. Makoto Miyazaki also returns from the first season to compose the music.


The main cast takes up the roles for the occasion in its entirety. They are:

  • Makoto Furukawa as Saitama
  • Kaito Ishikawa as Genos
  • Yuuki Kaji as Speed of Sound Sonic
  • Aoi Yuki as Tornado of Terror
  • Yuichi Nakamura as License-less Rider
  • Kazuhiro Yamaji as Silver Fang
  • Hiroki Yasumoto as King
  • Takahiro Sakurai as Zombieman
  • Katsuyuki Konishi as Tanktop Master

The seemingly ordinary and unimpressive Saitama has a rather unique hobby: being a hero. In order to pursue his childhood dream, he trained relentlessly for three years—and lost all of his hair in the process. Now, Saitama is incredibly powerful, so much so that no enemy is able to defeat him in battle. In fact, all it takes to defeat evildoers with just one punch has led to an unexpected problem—he is no longer able to enjoy the thrill of battling and has become quite bored.
This all changes with the arrival of Genos, a 19-year-old cyborg, who wishes to be Saitama's disciple after seeing what he is capable of. Genos proposes that the two join the Hero Association in order to become certified heroes that will be recognized for their positive contributions to society, and Saitama, shocked that no one knows who he is, quickly agrees. And thus begins the story of One Punch Man, an action-comedy that follows an eccentric individual who longs to fight strong enemies that can hopefully give him the excitement he once felt and just maybe, he'll become popular in the process.

The Murata manga adapts the original ONE web sleeve. Murata publishes the work on the Shuanisha's Tonari no Young Jump website. The series exceeded in November the figure of 4.5 million copies distributed.

The first season of the series premiered in October 2015 and consisted of 12 episodes.
