Let’s face it, One-Punch Man and Mob Psycho 100 can be hilarious yet heart-warming works of art. They have motivated scores of young men and women to keep walking toward their dream unrelentingly. Especially characters like Mumen Rider in One-Punch Man, who fully embody the spirit of a true hero despite lacking in power. It seems now that something more is coming our way, so hold your horses’ lads and ladies.
Tomohiro, aka ONE has started working on a brand-new manga which he’ll be involved with as the scriptwriter. According to details leaked online, the story will be titled VERSUZ. The manga release shall commence on November-26 onwards.
Azuma Kyoutarou (known for King of Fighters and Tenkaichi) has been linked with the upcoming manga as the artist. In it, we shall see 47 heroes gearing up to battle against 47 malevolent demons who worship the fearful Demon Lord. So far, that is the only bit of information available, and more details will arrive in the near future.
ONE is responsible for churning out masterpieces like One-Punch Man and Mob Psycho 100. Both tales feature a heavily-overpowered protagonist dealing with all sorts of dangerous threats.
In reference to One-Punch Man, Tomohiro said, “Punching is oftentimes pretty useless against life’s problems. But inside One-Punch Man’s universe, I made Saitama a sort of guy who was capable of adapting his life to the world that surrounded him, only armed with his immense power. The only obstacles he faces are mundane things, like running short of money.”
Though many around the world have criticized his art style for being too simplistic, at the end of the day, we must understand that ONE creates mangas for children. His webcomic OPM, which he self-published via his website from 2009 onwards, racked up over 100,000 visits every day from October 2015 to December that same year.
After being appreciated by over 70 million people in a short time, Tomohiro has kept making tremendous progress in art and storytelling.
Mob Psycho 100 started serializing via Shogakukan (Ura Sunday MangaONE) in 2012. The series concluded right before the end of 2017. One-Punch Man was animated by Madhouse and J.C. Staff, who worked on Seasons 1 and 2, respectively, and Mob Psycho 100 is looked after by Studio BONES. The OPM manga is illustrated by an expert named Yusuke Murata, whose drawings have earned a lot of fame over the years.
