Certain contemporary series’ in more recent times mostly go without having to be described. For the most part, everyone knows about the more popular titles, that’s just the way popularity goes, and with Manga series’ like One-Punch man, chances are, if you’ve read any of the countless good Shonen Jump Manga productions…you’re also very much aware of this one. Shonen Jump are great at promoting their up and coming titles, that’s why I’m sure you’ve known about One and Yusuke Murata’s One-Punch Man for quite some time. It’s also the reason you’re here reading this article!
Now that the Manga series has been in production for a little while, and the popularity train has picked up some speed, there’s an Anime adaptation of this goofy hero-centric Manga on the way courtesy of animation studio Madhouse. As with any upcoming Anime series, it’s always a good idea for the powers at be to promote the living hell out of it. Usually this is done with trailers introducing audiences to the story of the series, the setting of said story, and the characters present within it alongside the talented people who will be vocally portraying them. It’s pretty standard promotional stuff…and nothing has changed with One-Punch Man. Thank goodness!
Madhouse have just released the third preview for the upcoming Anime adaptation that shows off a little more of what we can expect in terms of high-octane fight scenes and unparalleled animation quality, as well as some of the characters who, up until this point, had yet to have been shown in any other preview. The Anime will begin airing in Japan in the early days of October to then be surely picked up by a legal streaming service who will bring this fantastic-looking Anime to the good people outside of Japan. At least, that’s what we all hope.
