The combined 36th and 37th issue of Young Jump magazine, to be released on August 6, will announce more cast and theme song details for the upcoming TV action series One Punch Man.

Cast
Fubuki: Saori Hayami (Akagami no Shirayuki-hime)
Sweet Mask: Mamoru Miyano (Steins;Gate)

JAM Project (Garo: Honoo no Kokuin) will be performing the anime's opening theme, and Hiroko Moriguchi (Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam) will be performing the anime's ending theme. Each theme will be a CD single, releasing on October 21 and November 18, respectively.

A second preview video has also been released.



One Punch Man is a series that follows the adventures of Saitama, an average-looking fellow with a bald head and lifeless expressions, who is actually a superhero and bored of battling weak opponents. He has trained himself to the point where his hair has fallen out. As result of his training, he has become so powerful that he can defeat enemies with a single punch.

The series is scheduled to premiere on TV Tokyo in Fall 2015.

I'm curious just how far this anime is gonna be going, announcing fubuki's voice actress in addition to previously announcing king and zombieman's means it could go all the way to the garou arc. I generally always expected a 1 cour series since the manga chapters are insanely short sometimes but if it really decides to go far enough possibly past where the murata version is at then maybe it'll have a 2 cour length

I just hope king's arc gets animated, that part was just hilarious.


they also have king and zombieman? didn't know that lol
iirc, zombieman appeared at the garou arc? correct me if i'm wrong though

can't wait for that then if they make it upto garou arc..


He appeared at the beginning of the boros arc, the problem is king and fubuki don't speak (and in the case of fubuki, appear) until the pre-garou arc.

Sweet Mask and Fubuki huh? so i expect 2 cours or more in this since they appear later in the manga. Just don't butcher it please..

So damn happy Madhouse didn't get Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas again. Hate that band so much. Jam Project opening is going to be glorious.
Hayamin as Fubuki? My lower regions are not ready. Miyano is a perfect fit for Sweet Mask, I had no one else in mind voicing him.

I know it's foolish to get extremely hyped because it will only end in disappointment, but there are absolutely no red flags for this adaptation so far. Everything is looking great.


I like fear and loathing but for One Punch man it would have been retarded.

Hey @Stark700, just a little correction. The show premieres on Tv tokyo, not tokyo-mx.


Thanks, fixed.

And the recent news did mention about the preview screening (unknown #s I think). We didn't include it this time around for the news article though.
