Original One-Punch Man Web Manga Gets New Chapter After 2-Year Hiatus
posted on by Alex Mateo
Yūsuke Murata and ONE launched the separate, ongoing One-Punch Man manga on Shueisha's free "Tonari no Young Jump" website in 2012. The series is a remake of ONE's original web manga of the same name. Viz Media is releasing the series digitally in its Weekly Shonen Jump manga anthology, and is also releasing the series in print. The manga also inspired a television anime which Viz Media streamed as it aired in Japan.
The second season of the One-Punch Man anime premiered with a television special on TV Tokyo, TV Osaka, and TV Aichi on April 2. Viz Media began streaming the first subtitled episode as a Hulu exclusive on April 9, "the same day as Japanese broadcast." Viz Media acquired the master license to the second anime season, including digital streaming, TV broadcast, electronic sell-through, home media, and merchandising rights for North America, Latin America and Oceania. Crunchyroll is streaming the series in Europe, excluding French- and German-speaking Europe, and in the Middle East and North Africa.
