Yusuke Murata, animator of the acclaimed anime series "One Punch Man," has been doubling his efforts to finish the drawings for it to be released on October this year. The creators of the anime have not finalized the storyline yet, but there are presumptions that the hero will be losing his powers.

These speculations came from fans as the creators have not revealed much of the story arc yet. What is confirmed is that, Saitama will be facing three new villains, one being Lord Boros as he returns to avenge his previous defeat. In Season 1, Lord Boros said that Saitama has not unlocked his full potential yet and if he does so, he will be no match for him.

Amai Mask is hinted to be the second villain that Saitama will encounter in "One Punch Man" Season 2. He will grow fond of the hero and will try to uncover the secret to his powers in order to use it to his advantage. He will also be attacking the Heroes Association which will fuel the battle between him and Saitama.

Garou, a human monster and the disciple of Bang, will also appear as another prime antagonist in "One Punch Man" Season 2. According to The Bit Bag, if Saitama fights against these two characters it would deviate from the manga series and could be considered a plot twist.

Meanwhile, Toonzone confirmed that the English dubbed version of "One Punch Man" will be aired on Toonami by July 16. The segment is said to portray a different side of the original version of Saitama.
