One-punch man started as a webcomic by ONE (Mob Psycho 100) before Yusuke Murata came on board as an artist for a new digital and printed version. VIZ Media is releasing the series in English and Crunchyroll is streaming the anime, which is described as follows:
Saitama started being a hero just for fun. After three years of “special” training, he has become so powerful that he can defeat his opponents with a single punch. Now, alongside Genos, his loyal cyborg follower, Saitama is ready to begin his official duties as a professional hero working with the Hero Association.
However, the frequency of monster appearances increases and it seems more and more that the prediction of the great seer Madame Shibabawa on the fate of Earth is coming true. In the midst of this crisis, the “hero hunter” Garou makes his own appearance.
