posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for the One-Punch Man anime began streaming the first two minutes from the project's first original video anime (OVA) episode, as well as the first minute from the second OVA episode, on Sunday.
The first 12-minute OVA, "Shinobiyori Sugiru Kage" (A Shadow That Snuck Up Too Close), features a completely original story written by the manga's original author ONE. The OVA takes place after Saitama's fight with Mosquito Girl, and it follows Genos as he is persistently and suspiciously prowling after Saitama trying to find out the secret of his strength. Additionally, a mysterious person appears who has a "certain reason" to hold a grudge against Saitama. The OVA will be included on the television anime's first Blu-ray Disc/DVD volume on December 24.
The second 11-minute OVA, "Hanashibeta-sugiru Deshi" (The Pupil Who Is an Extremely Poor Talker), also features a completely original story written by the manga's original author ONE. In this episode, Genos deals with Don Pacino's Mafia gang, even as he goes bargain-shopping for Saitama. This episode will be included on the television anime's second Blu-ray Disc/DVD volume on January 29.
The manga's television anime adaptation by Madhouse and director Shingo Natsume (Space Dandy, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos) premiered in Japan on TV Tokyo and Niconico Live in October, and it just ended late Sunday night (effectively early Monday morning). Viz Media and Daisuki are both streaming the series outside of Japan.
