I could complain about this or that but I'm just happy to have the second season.

So far the sakuga is not as bad as everyone thought it would be, but it's also nowhere near the height of the first season. The storyboarding for action scene is particularly flawed.

It's... Okay? Like, I was expecting a Berserk 2016-tier mess. I don't know if that's the reason why I found it bearable? But still, clear downgrade from the first season. I love the OP song but the visuals for the most part are pretty mediocre for it. Don't know what to think, aside from that I have low expectations for the rest of the show.
I expect Tokyo ghoul 're season 2 type mess i think animation somewhat decent but action scenes animation was bit average

ITT people in denial. Imagine thinking any studio could surpass the stacked team behind OPM S1. Get a grip. Quit comparing the differences of the anime and manga. Animation doesn't allow for as near as much time as illustration.

It wasn't that bad if you don't compare to the first season.
Just watch it with reasonable expectations and it will be enjoyable.

Yeah, most of the complains are valid and I agree with them, but it'll be really annoying to read them every single week. Better get used to whatever you hate from now or drop the series.

I don't have an issue with the animation, I actually think it's pretty good aesthetically, it just needs to be a bit more fluid

Aside from the big elephant in the room, pretty good first episode with awesome character work and a nice setup for future events

The pace and style were a bit weird but it's still One Punch Man and it's still funny x3 so, I think overall the first episode was pretty good~ hope it only gets better later on!

I enjoyed this episode. The pacing was good and I loved to learn more about King and the cause of his fear. Too bad there was some cgi, but overall I think the animation was great. The ending left me curious so I can't wait for next week!

The OPM "fans" right now


Seriously, production is not the great thing, it's just on the average, it's limited animation .
Sailor Moon did not have good animation either, it used to abuse the trick of repeating the transformation sequence multiple times so that it seemed to have good animation in each episode when it was really just copy and paste the same sequence by default, but even so it was successful thanks to everything else. For OPM, an anime that was supposedly recognized as being comedy and parody, the fact that it necessarily needs constant sakuga to attract attention tells a lot about the type of audience that ends up attracting.

I read the web manga.

Completely lost my patience with Murata retconning multiple chapters in a row redrawing some from the very start in a matter of weeks.

His perfectionism is a freaking mess that makes following the releases outside the tankobons a nightmare.

I decided to just wait for the arc to end and buy the full volumes at one point, except he expanded the arc a lot further and I think he didn't finish the arc still (not reading, so enlight me in case of the contrary, at least last time I checked later last year it wasn't complete still).

Not a huge OPM fan, but after watching this episode, it was pretty decent. People were predicting that it was going to be unwatchable. I mean the networking that Madhouse did with other studios and individuals is of course gonna be on a super high level, compared to just JC Staff. People need to realize that this season won't look as good as season 1

plus nothing can be worse than the airing version of Ore ga Suki nano wa Imouto dakedo Imouto ja Nai

Meanwhile animators, depending on context, give or take have an hour to draw a frame. World is ending guys, OPM S2 is slightly worse in quality to S1.

Well this was expected considering the drastic staff changes but yeah there were many noticeable differences with the animation. Also, season one set such unrealistic expectations that it doesn't surprise me to see people reacting as if this is the biggest animation abomination in history. There was just no way to possibly match season one unless everyone who worked on it came back. But I'm still gonna try my best to enjoy this.

PS, Saitama looks like he got sunburned lol.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

The color palette is really different compared to S1 (if i remember correctly of course). That's the first thing i don't really like.

You know, this is doomed from the start to be slandered by the public. OPM is HUGE and went over to the mainstream public easily. That same public will probably look at this right now and just shake their heads in disappointment.

I would say, it looks like your fairly usual seasonal anime production for action series but the standard SHOULD be different here.

Storywise, i did NOT expect King to be like this LOL.

Also it looks like they improved the animation compared to the trailer so it doesn't look too bad. They did the same for Date a Live when the preair happened. But i don't think, they'll get away with it in this case for episodes further down the line when i can believe the production issues that are going on.

like 80% still frames and panning shots or very simple shit like lip flaps
this is absolutely abysmal

but i know a lot of mediocre manga adaptations end up like this so most people will still think it's passable somehow

I don't know why everyone is kicking down this season before it even starts. One episode is out and to be honest I enjoyed every second of it! I'm a big One Punch Man fan, loved the first season and will continue to love the second!

It was fine, and I understood why the trailer wasn't that good - it's bc they only used scenes of this episode (coincidentally it's one of those which they didn't fight a lot)
I specially like the title song, but TTTTTT they joined the op w/the ending in that small box, it bothers me cuz for some reason it looked cheap.
But I have hope S2 will get better as episodes passes by.

I'm going to be a bit controversial, but whatever. I watched first season in October (as one of my first anime ever), and found it good (7/10), but nothing special. It is not my type of anime, as I don't really like action shows. But now I watched this episode and you know what? I enjoyed it more. The focus is more on comedy and plot, which is great, fight scene was short yet not horrible (Steins;Gate 0), only thing that was kinda weird were those shiny elements like Genos's arms. But for me, there's not much difference between both seasons, therefore I'll keep watching it and who knows? If plot will be brilliant I may even rate it higher

I'm a big fan of the series so I'll keep watching regardless but it was evident from the first shot that it wasn't going to be the same caliber. Not bad at all, but even by keeping the expectations down and knowing it would be different, it was disappointing. It was just too conventional and OPM deserves more than that after that master class first season.

NO thanks. I'm not someone who concentrate on small details when I watch anime or read the manga

Watching anime with voice acting and ost is so much more entertaining than looking at lifeless drawing with no voices and motion.

The character designs were okayish but the color palette was awful. The action scenes weren't great either not that I was expecting something comparable to the first season's but still not good with those camera movements. At least I enjoyed the appearances of Fubuki, Sonic and Garou. I also vastly prefer Hero as an OP but then again I don't think any OP could surpass since it totally fits OPM's theme. I will keep watching but really OPM deserves much better than this.

Tbh Im expecting Season 2 to be like Gintama final season(QUALITY like in the Utsuro fight, a lot of still frames but also couple of cool moments and character development).

Because "muh sakuga animation".

Seems that people cant understand the reason Season 1 had great animation was due to Madhouse using Bones animators, and Bones is the best anime studio today.

I still enjoyed the episode however, I've already read the manga so I know this arc is going to be lit

Not seeing Saitama One Punch the birdie..Booooooo!
Otherwise, yes it's a step down from S1, but I've seen a lot worse.
Fun episode, King is a pussy and looking forward to the rest of the series.

Also the one thing we can say about OPM S2, is that it brought together a community of animation experts. Perhaps you can all get together and make OPM S3 and show them how it's done.....no? Yeah, somehow I didn't think so.

I used to think like that, thinking it would be boring. But you'd be surprised how superior a manga can be, even if it is "lifeless" with no voices and "motion" It holds as much impact an anime does.

I won't force you to give it a try to manga in general, just pointing how wrong is your statement

I meant that it is lifeless because it lack motion and voice acting. Anime brings things to life that why anime is always more entertaining to me.

And I did try to read one punch man manga, but I dropped it quickly. Not as enjoyable as watching the actual anime,

The only manga I'm currently reading is attack on titan, but I still enjoyed the anime a lot more even though I knew what will happen

If this had come out before the madhouse adaptation people wouldn't even be criticizing this. It's not even below par when you look at all the animes that come out nowadays.

Yes, it's definitely not one Madhouse level but it's still good. People rarely seem to have opinions of their own nowadays, most just listen to what the internet thinks is good and bad

I honestly don't mind the animation. Yes it's a gigantic downgrade and I really fucking wish JC Staff weren't on the job for this, but the animation is bearable to me.
As for everything else it seems okay so far, but I don't think it'll be anywhere near as good as the first season. I hope the plot and comedy will stay at the same level as last season, but who knows anymore?
