Known for its unique humour and unrefined art style, “One-Punch Man” was created in 2009 and it is set in a world where both monsters and humans exist. The series follows a bald guy named Saitama aka Caped Baldy (ハゲマント, Hagemanto), the “most powerful hero alive” in Z-City who can defeat his enemies with a single punch, and his fellow heroes as they try to save the world. Despite the fact that Saitama lost the thrills of fighting due to his incredible powers, he never ignores crime.
With 10 million views since its launch, the manga was adapted into an anime one of Japan’s major manga publishers Shueisha alongside ONE and illustrator Yusuke Murata in 2012.
Though the premiere date for “One-Punch Man” season 2 has yet to be set, the news itself is enough to get us excited!
You can also catch “One-Punch Man” on Animax every Monday at 10pm with 2 episodes back-to-back. For more information on upcoming series, visit www.animax-asia.com.
