According to Comic Book, JAM Project has worked on anime's theme songs just like in "One Punch Man" Season 2. The group members are voice actors who are behind the famous anime characters. The band includes Masaaki Endoh, Masami Okui, and more.
Aside from "One Punch Man" Season 2's theme song, JAM Project already created a lot of tracks for different anime series since they started. Other shows included on their list are "Yu-Gi-Oh! EX" and "Super Robot Wars."
Viz Media earlier announced on Twitter that "One Punch Man" Season 2 would be out in April 2019. The media company also gave a glimpse of the anime series' trailer. However, it didn't give any concrete details about the show.
Hidden Remote reported that "One Punch Man" Season 2's new villain would be Garou. He is Bang's former student who got excommunicated after running amok in the dojo where he trained.
Garou has no intention to become a Hero. He is more interested in monsters and even transformed himself into one during the Monster Association arc that made him a Human Monster. Hence, it is more likely that he would face Saitama in "One Punch Man" Season 2.
Garou would attack the Hero Association in "One Punch Man" Season 2. The new villain planned to spread his evil-doing in Z-City and wanted to host a slaughter party. Fans might see the Garou they saw in the manga series in the anime series, but they still have to wait and see how the show would roll it.
