That’s right! it’s been a long time coming but it looks like Saitama is finally moving up in the world! Shonen Jump’s One-Punch Man is headed to the small-screen with an anime series officially in the works.
For those of you unfamiliar with the story, the title should say it all. Yes, he does defeat his enemies with a punch (but don’t let that fool you). Saitama is an interesting charater and author One (that’s really the name he goes by) and artist Yusuke Murata (one of the best in the business) combine their efforts to create remarkable stories with great (and really funny) dialogue as well as tremendous and intricate fight sequences.
Now there’s still a lot that hasn’t been revealed, but Tuesday should see more details come to the surface. With the right studio behind the project, the series could see much success. In the meantime, if you’re intrigued and want to read up on any of Saitama’s adventures (or if youre already a fan and you like a good nostalgia trip) I suggest you try One-Punch Man, Vol.1(you won’t regret it).
