One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 2 was aired on the 16th of April, 2019. After a rather disappointing premiere, the second episode was refreshing, funny and packed a lot of excitement.
Here’s a brief account of what happened in the second episode.
One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 2: Garo the Monster
The self-proclaimed human monster, Garo causes a ruckus at the hero-criminal meeting convened by the Lawmaker of Justice and massacres everybody present in the hall at breakneck speed.
Terrified, the minister dials up the Hero Association for extra backup and help. Garo challenges the authorities and says that he’ll return in six months, stronger than ever.
The scene switches and we see Genos doing the dishes while saying that he has climbed up to rank 14 in S-Class. He also mentions that Saitama is currently holds the 7th position in the B-Class.
Amidst the rather one-sided conversation with Saitama, he detects something moving towards them at a very high speed and pops outside to take a better look. Speed-o-sound Sonic appears from the shadows and demands to challenge Saitama. Genos deems Sonic unworthy of challenging Saitama and demands that he defeat him first in order to get to his master.
One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 2: Saitama Vs Fubuki
The two start a duel and move far away from the appartment while Blizzard (Fubuki) and her lackeys pay Saitama a visit (He’s still gaming on King’s device at this point). As nonchalant and bored as ever, Saitama declines Fubuki’s offer to join her group.
Enraged by his attitude and total disregard for her, Fubuki sets her lackeys to attack him. Saitama punches them with ease and Fubuki reveals her powers as an ESPer.
She hits him with a powerful blast of dust and rocks while he keeps dodging them at full speed. Saitama points out her insecurities and tells her that she can’t be a proper hero when she subdues other heroes and forms groups since this was simply an act to prove that she was superior and feel better about it.
While Fubuki fumes more, the duo get stuck in a cross-fire from Sonic and Genos’ battle. Saitama shields her from the mess when Genos apologizes for the large amount of dust. Fubuki interrupts their conversation and asks Genos how an S-class hero like him knows Saitama. Genos replies that he’s his student and readies himself to battle Sonic at full-power.
One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 2: Genos Vs Sonic
In a swift move, Genos manages to catch up to Sonic’s speed and cut off his ponytail. Saitama remarks that Genos has become faster and watches them as they battle.
Fubuki barely manages to see either of them and remarks that Sonic’s killing intent was more than intense while his combat ability definitely reached S-Class.
Although Genos battles Sonic with his new parts at full-speed, he falls short when Sonic unleashes a move called the four-fold slash. Genos is unable to keep up with the after-images and is saved right on time by Saitama.
He chides Genos for using his new parts in the duel and says that he’ll take care of Sonic since Saitama’s the one he’s after. Sonic shows off his ultimate move but Saitama puts him down in just one move. An injured Sonic says that he’ll be back after training more.
One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 2: Fubuki’s revelation
Fubuki reveals that she’s Tatsumaki’s sister and that she had been over-shadowed by her elder sister in terms of psychic and physical abilities.
She tells Saitama and Genos that she doesn’t want to relinquish the 1st rank in B-Class since making it all the way to the top is almost impossible.
Fubuki also says that she’d like to surpass her sister with a team since Tatsumaki always liked working alone. The episode ends with King paying a visit to Saitama and Fubuki wishing for their companionship while Genos admires Saitama’s strength and the way he competes only with himself and no one else.
To conclude, One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 2 seemed like a promising one filled with interesting battles and lessons.
