One Punch Man OST

Originally released as a web comic, One Punch Man has evolved into a super popular franchise. There's the manga series published in the famous Weekly Shonen Jump, an anime adaptation and various merchandise that you can get your hands on via the official One Punch Man Website. To add to that success, the much-awaited One Punch Man OST finally came out in January of this year. The One Punch Man soundtrack is produced by the label Lantis and will feature a renowned music composer, Makoto Miyazaki, who's also known for his works in Triage X, Dragon Crisis!, and Dibetagurashi: Ahiru no Seikatsu (TV). Check out this site for more info on how to get your hands on your very own One Punch Man OST (US$ 26.76 before shipping charges). Let's explore the different songs included in this epic soundtrack.



One Punch Man Opening

THE HERO!! Okareru Kobushi Ni Hi Wo Tsukero (THE HERO!! Light Your Furious Fist on Fire)


One Punch Man OST

THE HERO!! Light Your Furious Fist on Fire is the current opening song of One Punch Man. Performed by the prominent musical group JAM project, this upbeat rock song may go down in anime history as one of the most memorable. With its powerful and upbeat melody, the opening pumps viewers up so much that they can't help but want to put on their trainers and do a hundred (or a thousand) push ups!

The song is well-arranged too. The intro successfully builds up the energetic mood that when the vocals started screaming, it feels perfectly right. The verse is also really nice. The shift in tempo serves as a good interval before the pre-chorus. The lyrics for the chorus itself are superb, perfect for a characterization of Saitama, a super strong dude that became a super hero just for fun. The song ends with a solid breakdown followed by the main riff from the intro.

Lyrics of the chorus:

As a HERO, I don’t want to hear praise or cheering
Since I’m a HERO, I’ll fight against evil behind the scenes (Nobody knows who he is)
The looming enemies block out the heavens, but I’ll never turn my back on them
If I’m a HERO, then in my steely determination, I’ll rain down iron fists

Songs full of emotion are often overly exaggerated. But considering the intense fights in One Punch Man, it can't hurt to have some powerful expressions included. Plus, JAM Project is really good at singing powerful numbers!

Overall, the opening song of the One Punch Man OST portrays the atmosphere of the anime perfectly and serves as a great introduction to each episode.


One Punch Man Ending

Hoshi yori Saki ni Mitsukete Ageru (I'll Find You Before the Stars Do)

The iconic alarm clock (picture above) is from the ending and is hated by many fans, mainly because it means the end of that week's episode, leaving viewers with their jaws wide open and waiting for more. In contrast to the opening song, I'll Find You Before the Stars Do is an incredibly soothing piece. The song is sung by the female Japanese singer Hiroko Moriguchi, known for her works in Circuit Angel: Ketsui no Starting Grid, Katsugeki Shoujo Tanteidan, Mobile Suit Gundam F91, and Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam. Some fans say the One Punch Man ending song does not fit the anime's theme. But then others say that Hiroko's mesmerizing voice provides a minute of rest from the epic battles in every episode.
