Series to premiere in October with streaming by Viz, Daisuki

The official website for the One-Punch Man television anime began streaming the second promotional video on Saturday.

The original manga's story revolves around the titular super hero who has trained so hard that his hair has fallen out, and who can overcome any enemy with one punch. However, because he is so strong, he has become bored and frustrated with winning all his battles so easily.

The video introduces the characters:



Makoto Furukawa (Aldnoah Zero's Shigou Kakei, Golden Time's Banri Tada) as Saitama
A man who underwent special training for three years and gained unrivaled powers. He took up being a hero as a hobby.



Kaito Ishikawa (Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet's Ledo, Haikyu!!'s Tobio Kageyama) as Genos
A young man who is a cyborg. He admires Saitama and becomes his apprentice.



Yuuki Kaji (Attack on Titan's Eren, World Trigger's Osamu Mikumo) as Speed of Sound Sonic (Onsoku no Sonic)
A self-proclaimed "strongest ninja" who takes on any jobs from assassination to being a bodyguard. He persistently continues to pursue Saitama.



Aoi Yūki (Madoka Magica's Madoka, Sword Art Online II's Yuuki) as Tornado of Terror (Senritsu no Tatsumaki)
An S-class rank 2 hero. She is an esper who brings down her enemies with supernatural attacks. Her outward appearance is that of a little girl but she is in fact an adult.

Yūichi Nakamura (Fairy Tail's Grey, Valvrave the Liberator's Raizō Yamada) as License-less Rider (not pictured), the hero with the heart of true justice

The other characters include:

  • Kazuhiro Yamaji (Psycho-Pass' Jouji Saiga, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children's Cid) as Silver Fang
  • Hiroki Yasumoto (Yowamushi Pedal's Kinjō, Fairy Tail's Elfman) as King
  • Takahiro Sakurai (Magi's Ja'far, Tokyo Ghoul's Uta) as Zombieman
  • Katsuyuki Konishi (Hetalia's America, Fairy Tail's Laxus) as Tanktop Master

Yuusuke Murata's manga series adapts ONE's original web manga of the same name. Murata's manga is currently running on Shueisha's free Tonari no Young Jump spinoff website. The series passed the 2.2-million mark in November 2013, the 3.4-million mark in May 2014, and the 4.5-million mark in November. Shueisha published the eighth compiled volume on April 3.

One-Punch Man is currently serialized in Viz Media's English-language digital edition of Weekly Shonen Jump. Viz will release the first two volumes in print this September, and Viz will also stream the anime on its website and on Daisuki.
