    Announced at Anime Expo 2015 and coming soon from VIZ Media - an anime that packs quite a PUNCH!


    Saitama is a hero who only became a hero for fun. After three years of “special” training, though, he’s become so strong that he’s practically invincible. In fact, he’s too strong—even his mightiest opponents are taken out with a single punch, and it turns out that being devastatingly powerful is actually kind of a bore.
    With his passion for being a hero lost along with his hair, yet still faced with new enemies every day, how much longer can he keep it going?

    VIZ MEDIA, VIZ MEDIA EUROPE AND ANIME CONSORTIUM JAPAN ANNOUNCE ACQUISITION OF MULTI-TERRITORY MEDIA RIGHTS TO ONE-PUNCH MAN ANIME SERIES

    Action-Driven Superhero Series By Studio Madhouse Based On The Bestselling Manga Series About A Superhero Who Just Needs A Villain Strong Enough To Take Him On

    San Francisco, CA, July 2, 2015 – VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), the largest publisher, distributor and licensor of manga and anime in North America, has teamed with VIZ Media Europe S.A.R.L. (VME), the leader in Japanese Entertainment content in Europe, and Anime Consortium Japan Inc. (ACJ), the Japanese company for official anime streaming, to jointly announce the acquisition of the multi-territory media distribution rights for the anime series, ONE-PUNCH MAN.

    Announced earlier this year, the ONE-PUNCH MAN anime is based on a bestselling manga series, created by writer ONE and artist Yusuke Murata, about an average-guy-turned-superhero who packs quite the punch! Three content distribution companies will join force to manage the digital distribution, home media, merchandise, and TV rights to the newly produced anime series for their respective territories.

    · VIZ Media will manage the master license for ONE-PUNCH MAN in North America, Latin America and Oceania, as well as stream the series in the U.S.
    · VIZ Media Europe will oversee & stream the property for EMEA, including Russia
    · In addition, ACJ will stream the subtitled version of the program in all above territories

    Additional details about availability will be forthcoming.

    “ONE-PUNCH MAN is a beautifully produced, action-driven series, and we will leverage our expertise in developing anime content across all major consumer formats with a savvy combination of proprietary and partner distribution channels to bring this series to audiences on the widest possible range of media devices and platforms,” says Brad Woods, Chief Marketing Officer, VIZ Media.

    “We are very excited to bring ONE-PUNCH MAN to European audiences. Our extensive distribution and licensing infrastructure across the region will ensure that fans will be able to catch every episode localized for their countries and across an array of multimedia platforms and a variety of licensed goods ” says Pascal J. Bonnet, Senior Director TV Sales & Licensing, VIZ Media Europe

    “We are very pleased to add ONE-PUNCH MAN to our anime digital media streaming service, and look forward to delivering this extraordinary superhero action series to our users around the world,” says Ririko Kubo, Sales Promotion Division, Anime Consortium Japan Inc.

    VIZ Media also publishes the ONE-PUNCH MAN manga series (rated ‘T’ for Teens) under its Shonen Jump imprint. The series is currently serialized in VIZ Media’s WEEKLY SHONEN JUMP magazine, and full volumes are available digitally first in North America via the VIZ Manga platform and partner digital storefronts. The series launches in print in September.

    ONE-PUNCH MAN was animated by the renowned Japanese studio, Madhouse, and helmed by famed anime director, Shingo Natsume, (Space Dandy, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos)and features character designs by Chikashi Kubota(From the New World, Robotics:notes). In the series, Saitama is a hero who only became a hero for fun. After three years of “special” training, though, he’s become so strong that he’s practically invincible. In fact, he’s too strong—even his mightiest opponents are taken out with a single punch, and it turns out that being devastatingly powerful is actually kind of a bore. With his passion for being a hero lost along with his hair, yet still faced with new enemies every day, how much longer can he keep it going?

    Manga creator ONE began ONE-PUNCH MAN as a web comic, which quickly went viral and garnered over 10 million hits. Japanese manga publisher (and VIZ Media parent company) Shueisha eventually secured the publishing rights to the series which has sold more than 4.5 million copies to-date. In addition to ONE-PUNCH MAN, ONE writes and draws the series Mob Psycho 100 and Makai no Ossan.

    Yusuke Murata is a highly acclaimed and skilled manga artist best known for his work on the football series, EYESHIELD 21 (also published in North America by VIZ Media). In 1995, Murata won the prestigious 122nd Hop Step Award for his series, Partner, and placed second in 1998 in the semi-annual Akatsuka Awards for Samui Hanashi.

    Good pickup for them, guess the manga must be doing well if they chose the anime THIS early.

        Re: Viz Media licenses One Punch Man

        They've been running the manga in Weekly Shonen Jump, releasing it digitally, and recently announced physical releases, so it makes sense to get the anime. Great to see it picked up so early, especially since Viz hasn't been doing many simulcasts in recent years at all. Now hopefully they just let Crunchyroll also have it. It's sure to be one of the best anime of the year.

          I don't know why, but the anime and/or trailer reminds me of Zetman for some reason...

          Anyway, I'll definitely give this show a chance.

            I get the Zetman vibe off of this too. I know nothing about the series.

              I hope they let CR have it in the end, too. All the mention of Daisuki is... concerning.

                    Nope. We may not get any hints until the JP home video releases are solicited.
