Tubi streams One-Punch Man Season 2 in Canada as part of renewed Viz partnership

San Francisco-based, ad-supported streaming service Tubi has announced an extension to its existing Canadian partnership with Viz Media. The new agreement has seen Tubi add the first season of One-Punch Man in a subtitled format. The service will also be the Canadian simulcast home to the show’s second season, with new episodes added weekly starting today. Additionally, Tubi will also stream the first three Naruto films: Ninja Clash in The Land of Snow (2004), Legend of The Stone of Gelel (2005), and Guardians of the Crescent Moon Kingdom (2006).

“We’re excited to super-serve our passionate anime viewers with the Naruto movies and One-Punch Man,” said Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer, Tubi. “This enhances what is already the best completely free anime library in Canada, which includes popular titles such as Yu-Gi-Oh!Hunter x HunterJoJo’s Bizarre AdventureBleach, and Fairy Tail.”

During its simulcast in 2015, the original One-Punch Man anime was made available to international audiences through the now defunct Daisuki. The show was later streamed on Netflix and other platforms. With season 2, Viz Media announced an exclusive streaming deal with Hulu in the United States. As Hulu only operates in that country, that partnership left most of the Americas unaccounted for.

Produced by J.C. Staff with Chikara Sakurai in the director’s chair, the second season of One-Punch Man began on April 9, 2019. Like the first, the series adapts the manga of the same name by ONE.

Like most Naruto animation, the three features were animated by Studio Pierrot. The films were directed by Tensai Okamura, Hirotsugu Kawasaki and Toshiyuki Tsuru, respectively.

Some of you may have seen One-Punch Man’s Saitama on Canadian television recently, courtesy of Adult Swim. Unfortunately, I suspect that wasn’t a hint at future programming but instead just someone unaware of the reference. The bumper was borrowed from the U.S.
