More About One-Punch Man
In 2009, One-Punch Man debuted as a self-published webcomic. When ONE announced the series’ hiatus in 2010, Yusuke Murata of Eyeshield 21 read it and knew right away that he wanted to collaborate with the writer. Before remaking One-Punch Man, which was serialised on the Tonari no Young Jump website in 2012, they collaborated on two one-shots. The plot revolves around a man with a lethal punch that can knock out his opponents in a single swing.
ONE’s next major project after One-Punch Man was Mob Psycho 100, which lasted from 2012 to 2017. ONE wrote and illustrated the series, which follows Mob, a seemingly ordinary young man who is actually a powerful psychic. In the hopes of learning to control his abilities, he trains under a con man named Reigen Arataka. Mob Psycho 100’s third season is currently airing on Crunchyroll as part of the fall anime lineup.
Tenkaichi and King of Fighters were both illustrated by Azuma Kyoutarou. Tenkaichi is a Nakamaru Yousuke battle manga in which Oda Nobunaga declares that he will hand over the country to the strongest warrior. The game King of Fighters is a remake of the PlayStation 4 game King of Fighters XIV. Seven Seas Entertainment published the story, which follows a group of fighters who are all trying to figure out who the strongest warrior among them is.
One-Punch Man is available on Viz Media and Mob Psycho 100 is available on Dark Horse Comics. VERSUS will premiere on Nov. 26.
