The first episode of this new season was showcased in Japan this weekend, but Western audiences will likely have to wait until April 2019 to see it legally.
The first season of the OPM anime aired in 2015, whilst the ongoing manga by ONE and illustrator Yusuke Marata, which began serialisation in 2012, is being released by Shuiesha in Japan and Viz Media in English territories.
Look out for further news on the new season nearer to its release date!
