The series 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 series adapts ONE's original web manga of the same name, which had received more than 7.9 million hits online as of June 2012. The manga is currently running on Shueisha's free Tonari no Young Jump spinoff website. Shueisha released the first two compiled book volumes of the series last month.
Shonen Jump Alpha will move to a simultaneous model with Japan on January 21. Monday's issue also revealed that the magazine will have a new name and a new look starting with next week's issue. Viz Media also noted that it will add more new series to the lineup.
