Here I thought this day would never come. People, surely you’ve heard of the comtemporary Manga series “One-Punch Man” right? You havn’t?! That’s insane! Well, “One-Punch Man” is a simple Shonen story that revolves around a B-Grade superhero that has the inhuman ability to destroy anyONE or anyTHING with a single punch. Despite having such an ability, he hasn’t quite made it into the Hollywood-like world of professional superheroism…but he’s on his way!
Originally a web comic by amateur artist and writer “ONE”, “One-Punch Man” was picked up and adapted into a proper Manga in 2012 by well-known Shonen Jump royalty Yusuke Murata who you may know illustrated the series “Eyeshield 21”. It’s now 2015 and an Anime adaptation of the odd Manga has finally been greenlit for production.
As of right now, there hasn’t been much of an information release. The only thing that has been announced is that there is going to be an adaptation, who will be spearheading this new series is so far unknown but word is that, come Anime Japan Expo 2015 on 21st and 22nd of March, much more will be revealed regarding the series’ specifics. Right now…that stuff doesn’t matter at all! What truly matters is that this thing is actually happening! Finally we’ll get the chance to see Saitama, Genos and the S-Rank Heroes in some sweet Anime action!
