‘One Punch Man’ Season 3: Storyline
One Punch Man tells the story of Saitama, the main protagonist and superhero who packs a deadly punch. The story is set on an unnamed, supercontinent Earth where powerful villains and monsters are wreaking havoc in the cities. To combat this, a millionaire named Agoni creates the Hero Association which employs superheroes to battle the Monster Association. The Monster Association is responsible for the rapid creation of monsters and is intent on destroying the Hero Association.
Saitama is a lone superhero hailing from City Z who is self trained to defeat any enemy with a single punch. He does not work for either the Hero or Monster association but instead performs heroic deeds for his own enjoyment. Unfortunately, he becomes bored by a lack of challenging opponents and begins seeking out a worthy foe to battle.
Season 3 of One Punch Man will, of course, feature more of Saitama’s battles along with his struggles and stress from being the strongest man in the world.
