Shingo Natsume to Return for One Punch Man Season 3?
One Punch Man Season 3 could be directed by Shingo Natsume but the ultimate decision lies in hands of the anime producers. Natsume attended the AnimeFest last August in Dallas, Texas, where he was asked about his opinion on One Punch Man Season 2 animation quality and he admitted that it could have been better.
The director told that he would love to come back for the third season of One Punch Man and since he is a freelance director, it won’t be that difficult to arrange for that by Viz Media. Fans are hoping that Natsume returns to One Punch Man season 3 and bring back the original animation style back to the show.
