It recieved 7.9 million hits in June 2012.[7] One-Punch Man tells the story of Saitama, a very powerful superhero. He has grown bored due to the lack of challenge in his fight against evil and is trying to find a worthy opponent.

A digital manga remake of the series, illustrated by Yusuke Murata, began publication on Shueisha's Young Jump Web Comics website in 2012.[6] The chapters are collected and printed into tankōbon volumes. Sixteen volumes were released as of April 4, 2018. Viz Media has licensed the remake for English publication in its Weekly Shonen Jump digital magazine.[8]

Later that year a planned second season was announced.[12] On September 25, 2017, it was announced that they would be changing both its production company and director.[13]
