A scan of the latest issue of Weekly Young Jump magazine, officially releasing Thursday March 12, revealed that One and Yusuke Murata's manga One Punch-Man will get a TV anime adaptation. A promotional video, which will be presented at Bandai Visual's booth at the Anime Japan 2015 event on March 21-22, will announce the cast and staff members for the TV series. According to One, Yusuke Murata is also participating in the anime production.

One began serializing the webcomic One Punch-Man on his own website in 2009. Yusuke Murata collaborated with One to remake the webcomic into a manga series in 2012 which is serialized in the online version of Weekly Young Jump.

The manga follows Saitama, an average-looking fellow with a bald head and lifeless expressions, who is actually a superhero and bored of battling weak opponents. He embarks on a journey to find a worthy opponent that can withstand his one-punch fighting technique.

Best news of the year so far. I wonder how many episodes it will be but this is still an awesome way to start the weekend. And oh yeah, remember that Mob Psycho 100 is up for voting along with some other entries to decide if it will get an anime adaptation in the future. Make that happen as well.

The Bandai Booth thing may suggest Sunrise for studio.

If Bones adapt this, that means their lineup will be full this year.

Other than the studio, I'm also very curious on the number of cour and chapters they'll adapt. Still, whatever format they choose I'm hyped to the limit. Can't wait for a PV.
5 main aspects I base my ratings on:
1. Did DramaEnthusiast make a thread about it?
2. Is it better than Breaking Bad?
3. Did MellowJello recommend the shit out of it?
4. Has it caused a (very entertaining) shitstorm on MAL?
5. Is it actually good?

Scratch the fifth point, it's not very relevant...

I doubt they're going to do this one. Like you said the Bandai booth might be a hint that Sunrise is going to pick this up.

Awesome news. OPM has to be the funniest superhero stuff i've read in quite some time. I'm also excited by the fact that i'll be able to see Saitama's total badassery in full fledged TV anime.

The synopsis sounds pretty silly, but it's a good kind of silly, so I'll probably watch it. :P

Once again, fuck yeah.

Based on the illustration, looks like I.G or Wit.

But please, not Toei.


That's why I'm worried coz the illustration really looks like what IG or WIT would draw. IG please not WIT.

Inb4 Toei too, but if the gods are kind enough it might be Bones or Sunrise.

I just recently happened to come across the manga and it looked quite cool but I didn't start to read it then. But now that the anime is coming I think I'll give this a go. And it seems pretty popular and is ranked well here on MAL.

People read and enjoy One's version of the manga and I can assure you, the art isn't its strong point.

Definitely wrong. Why else would Murata have been that enthusiastic to make a manga out of the original webcomic otherwise?
