MANGA TITLE: One-Punch Man Vol. 12

STORY BY: ONE

ART BY: Yusuke Murata

Life gets pretty boring when you beat the snot out of every villain with just one punch.

Nothing about Saitama passes the eyeball test when it comes to superheroes, from his lifeless expression to his bald head to his unimpressive physique. However, this average-looking guy has a not-so-average problem—he just can’t seem to find an opponent strong enough to take on!


As the first round of the martial arts tournament has completed, Saitama (using the guise of “Charanko”) must take on the two-time champ, Bakuzan.  And as Suiryu who also has been taking out competition with one hit/kick, monsters are descending towards the martial arts tournament from all sides.  This leaves Genos to go out and take them on.

All this and more in vol. 12 of “One-Punch Man” by One and Yusuke Murata!

What is “One-Punch Man” all about?

When it comes to success stories of web comics becoming viral, ONE’s “One-Punch Man” is one of the well-known titles that have taken the world by storm.

Created back in 2009 and having surpassed over 7.9 million hits in 2012, “One-Punch Man” would receive a digital manga remake featuring illustrations by Yusuke Murata (best known for his illustrations for the manga series, “Eyeshield 21”) and would be published on the Shueisha’s “Young Jump Web Comics” website.

In September 2015, Viz Media released the graphic novel for “One-Punch Man” in the United States and in October 2015, the anime adaptation for “One-Punch Man” began airing on Japanese television.

“One Punch Man” is set in City Z and monsters have been appearing in the city causing massive destruction.

But standing in their way is a skinny, bald man named Saitama who also happens to be extremely powerful and can defeat monsters with one punch. But because he often wins all the time, Saitama has grown bored and is often trying to find more powerful opponents.

In volume 12, the martial arts tournament has completed and the first round is done.  Saitama has moved on to the next round and now he must take on the champ for the last two years, Bakuzan.

And as others are getting ready for their second round of competition, ruthless monsters have descened towards the martial arts tournament area, leaving various superheroes trying their best to defend the location and protect people.

But what happens when Genos and Blizzard are trying to fight against these monsters?  Can they outlast and defeat them?


With the twelfth volume of “One-Punch Man”, it’s martial arts tournament time as the group who survived the first round now must be ready to take on their challengers for the second round.

And so far, people are surprised by the one punch of Saitama (going with the name “Charanko”) and the one on kick Suiryu, what happens when Saitama is pit to go against the champion of the last two years, Bakuzan.

Also, as everyone is watching and being entertained by these one-on-one battles, monsters are descending to the area and the heroes but due all what’s possible to stop them.

And Garos and Blizzard must take on enemies that come their way.  Meanwhile, Garo ends up seeing one of the more popular heroes, Watchdog Man, keeping watch.  Will Garos take him on?

Also, included is a backup manga featuring King who has people watching him at the cafe.

For the most part, I’m really enjoying this series because the protagonist is quite unusual. You think of a strong and charismastic super hero as your main protagonist, but the protagonist of “One-Punch Man” is a skinny baldheaded man named Saitama who doesn’t look menacing at all.

A person who became strong by working out constantly, he then lost all his hair an became super powerful.

And where most heroes are proud of their work, Saitama is somewhat wanting the attention and respect that comes with being a hero, but yet hasn’t received it. So, Saitama is an interesting contrast to the stereotypical hero who is typically a person that is athletically fit, has a remarkable IQ or tremendous skillset, but for Saitama….he looks like a normal guy.

And while Earth has their heroes ranked, Saitama, despite his awesome strength is rated quite low. Will Saitama be able to prove that he is more than a hero?

Having seen ONE’s original “One-Punch Man”, the artwork from the original versus Yusuke Murata’s artwork is night and day. I always enjoyed Murata’s work on “Eyeshield 21” but his work of bringing ONE’s “One-Punch” man to life is fantastic. It was Murata who approached ONE to redo the artwork and if anything, it had helped ONE’s creation become well-known internationally.

So far, I’m enjoying the series, especially its really crazy and outlandish characters. But I like how the series manages to balance humor and fighting violence quite well. And Saitama is so different from your usual protagonist character in a super hero comic, so I am enjoying what I’m reading so far.

How will Saitama do in the second rout of the tournament and how will Genos do against the many monsters making their way towards the tournament?

The human monster and hero hunter Garo cranks up the intensity of his destruction. As the damage increases, throwing the hero world into turmoil, Saitama decides it’s the perfect time to develop an interest in martial arts and sneaks into a combat tournament. Meanwhile, the Class-S hero Metal Bat takes an assignment guarding a Hero Association executive and his son, and it isn’t long before trouble appears!


The “Hero Hunter” known as Garo has made his name known of defeating every hero and monster that has come his way.  But what happens when Garo and Saitama come across each other for the first time?

Meanwhile, Saitama prepares for an upcoming fighting tournament which Garo has dominated.

Also, Miss Blizzard gathers a team to take on Saitama’s team in a fighting video game challenge.

In volume 8, a villain named Tongue Scratcher and a mecha named G4 have arrived on the scene and King, the top Class S superhero happens to be nearby.

But who is King? What is his special fighting power? And what makes him the greatest superhero alive?

In volume 9, we have seen Saitama pretty much kick butt against everyone that has come his way. But is there a super villain that has great power that will put much of a fight against Saitama? Enter Garo, a supervillain who admires monsters and wants to destroy all heroes. Meanwhile, Class B, Rank 1’s Hellish Blizzard has come to invite Saitama to her superhero crew.


With the tenth volume of “One-Punch Man”, GARO is wreaking havoc as he is destroying all heroes and monsters that come his way and he wants to destroy them all.

But what happens when he and and Saitama come across each other?

As for Saitama, it’s tournament time and he wants to take part in the Superfight and challenge the strongest and the winner will take home three million.  But Saitama will be using Mumen Rider’s ticket (as Mumen Rider was injured badly by GARO) and be disguised as him.

Meanwhile, Ms. Blizzard wants another battle with Saitama, so she is doing a team battle…but this time in a fighting video game challenge!

An emergency summons gathers Class S heroes at headquarters… and Saitama tags along. There, they learn that the great seer Shibabawa left the following prophecy: “The Earth is in danger!” What in the world is going to happen?


 

The top Class S ranked superheroes and Saitama have gathered together to hear bad news from Sitch of the Hero Association that before the Great Seer Madame Shibabawa died, her last words is that in six months, earthquakes and monsters will strike Earth.

The question is when?  Unfortunately, the heroes won’t have to wait long because after Sich gives the final message from the Great Seer, Earth is attacked by monsters and aliens.

Will the heroes be ready for this assault on Earth?

“One Punch Man” is set in City Z and monsters have been appearing in the city causing massive destruction.

But standing in their way is a skinny, bald man named Saitama who also happens to be extremely powerful and can defeat monsters with one punch. But because he often wins all the time, Saitama has grown bored and is often trying to find more powerful opponents.

In volume 1, Saitama takes on Vaccine Man who wants to eliminate humankind’s constant pollution of the environment by eliminating humanity. He also takes on the strongest of the Strongest Brothers.

One day, Saitama comes across a cyborg named Genos who is taking on a lady who is also a mosquito and can suck one’s life dry. Should Saitama help Genos?

In vol. 2, a group of monsters began attacking Saitama at his home. They have clearly targeted him and as Genos tries to assist, Saitama shows the cyborg his power once again.

But having learned that a mad scientist wants Saitama captured in order to study his body for research, the scientist gets ready to unleash his killer creation, Carnage Kabuto.

Meanwhile, a terrorist group is about to make its war on the rich of humanity, but a ninja known as Speed-O’-Sound Sonic goes to confront him. As Saitama comes across this ninja, is he friend or foe?

In volume 3, seeing how Saitama can defeat these tough monsters just with one punch, Genos wans Saitama to teach and train him to be a better hero. And while Saitama accepts Genos to live with him (thanks to Genos offering him a huge amount of money), Saitama scores lower than Genos in the Hero Exam. As Genos ranks S-class and Saitama ranks C-class, what happens when monsters run lose in the city? And how will the other heroes respond?

In volume 4, Saitama saves the world from a devastating meteor but no one believes this skinny, bald hero is capable of having so much power.

In volume 5, the Deep Sea King, the leader of the Clan of the Seafolk has come onto land and has his eyes set to conquer human kind.

This leads to many of Earth’s heroes such as Puri-Puri Prisoner, Sonic, Genos, Mumen Rider and many others trying to stop him.

With humanity unsafe, even Class-C Hero Allback-Man, Class-B Hero Jet Nice Guy, Class-C Hero Bunbun Man and Class-A hero Snakebit Fist Snek try their best to fight against the Deep Sea King.

But can these heroes fare well against someone so devastating?

In volume 6, Class S heroes and Saitama get together to hear about the Great Seer’s final prophecy and that the Earth is in danger of earthquakes and monsters within the next six months.

Her predictions have been perfect, but the problem is not knowing when it will happen.

Unfortunately, before a plan can be formulated, monsters and aliens attack Earth.

Will the Class S heroes be enough to protect the Earth?


With the sixth volume of “One-Punch Man”, the story quickly transitions to another major attack.  Featuring the world’s top Class S heroes (with Saitama tagging along with Genos), they are told of the final prophecy of Earth being under attack by monsters and earthquakes.

And all of a sudden monsters and an alien species have begun their assault on Earth.

And as Earth’s top heroes prepare for battle, they quickly learn that their skills may not be up to par against aliens that can regenerate.

Meanwhile, Saitama decides to lead an assault himself on the primary alien spacecraft.  But will One-Punch Man make a difference in this battle?

For the most part, I’m really enjoying this series because the protagonist is quite unusual. You think of a strong and charismastic super hero as your main protagonist, but the protagonist of “One-Punch Man” is a skinny baldheaded man named Saitama who doesn’t look menacing at all.

Having seen ONE’s original “One-Punch Man”, the artwork from the original versus Yusuke Murata’s artwork is night and day. I always enjoyed Murata’s work on “Eyeshield 21” but his work of bringing ONE’s “One-Punch” man to life is fantastic. It was Murata who approached ONE to redo the artwork and if anything, it had helped ONE’s creation become well-known internationally.

So far, I’m enjoying the series, especially its really crazy and outlandish characters. But I like how the series manages to balance humor and fighting violence quite well. And Saitama is so different from your usual protagonist character in a super hero comic, so I am enjoying what I’m reading so far.

With this sixth volume, we get the introductions of Earth’s top heroes and see them all in battle, which is a plus! Especially as the series introduces Terrible Tornado, Atomic Samurai, Silverfang and more!

If you love action-driven manga series with a good amount of humor, definitely give “One-Punch Man” a shot!

But standing in their way is a skinny, bald man named Saitama who also happens to be extremely powerful and can defeat monsters with one punch. But because he often wins all the time, Saitama has grown bored and is often trying to find more powerful opponents.

In volume 1, Saitama takes on Vaccine Man who wants to eliminate humankind’s constant pollution of the environment by eliminating humanity. He also takes on the strongest of the Strongest Brothers.

One day, Saitama comes across a cyborg named Genos who is taking on a lady who is also a mosquito and can suck one’s life dry. Should Saitama help Genos?

In vol. 2, a group of monsters began attacking Saitama at his home. They have clearly targeted him and as Genos tries to assist, Saitama shows the cyborg his power once again.

But having learned that a mad scientist wants Saitama captured in order to study his body for research, the scientist gets ready to unleash his killer creation, Carnage Kabuto.

Meanwhile, a terrorist group is about to make its war on the rich of humanity, but a ninja known as Speed-O’-Sound Sonic goes to confront him. As Saitama comes across this ninja, is he friend or foe?

In volume 3, seeing how Saitama can defeat these tough monsters just with one punch, Genos wans Saitama to teach and train him to be a better hero. And while Saitama accepts Genos to live with him (thanks to Genos offering him a huge amount of money), Saitama scores lower than Genos in the Hero Exam. As Genos ranks S-class and Saitama ranks C-class, what happens when monsters run lose in the city? And how will the other heroes respond?

In volume 4, Saitama saves the world from a devastating meteor but no one believes this skinny, bald hero is capable of having so much power.

In volume 5, the Deep Sea King, the leader of the Clan of the Seafolk has come onto land and has his eyes set to conquer human kind.

This leads to many of Earth’s heroes such as Puri-Puri Prisoner, Sonic, Genos, Mumen Rider and many others trying to stop him.

With humanity unsafe, even Class-C Hero Allback-Man, Class-B Hero Jet Nice Guy, Class-C Hero Bunbun Man and Class-A hero Snakebit Fist Snek try their best to fight against the Deep Sea King.

But can these heroes fare well against someone so devastating?


With the fifth volume of “One-Punch Man”, the story continues as we see various heroes taking on the very deadly Deep Sea King.

And as of right now, it seems that no hero is strong enough to stop him from his deadly rampage against humanity.

Meanwhile, as many heroes have been defeated or have escaped to find shelter against the fight against the Deep Sea King, Saitama answers the call, but will he be tough enough to take on the power Deep Sea King?

For the most part, I’m really enjoying this series because the protagonist is quite unusual. You think of a strong and charismastic super hero as your main protagonist, but the protagonist of “One-Punch Man” is a skinny baldheaded man named Saitama who doesn’t look menacing at all.

A person who became strong by working out constantly, he then lost all his hair an became super powerful.

And where most heroes are proud of their work, Saitama is somewhat wanting the attention and respect that comes with being a hero, but yet hasn’t received it. So, Saitama is an interesting contrast to the stereotypical hero who is typically a person that is athletically fit, has a remarkable IQ or tremendous skillset, but for Saitama….he looks like a normal guy.

Having seen ONE’s original “One-Punch Man”, the artwork from the original versus Yusuke Murata’s artwork is night and day. I always enjoyed Murata’s work on “Eyeshield 21” but his work of bringing ONE’s “One-Punch” man to life is fantastic. It was Murata who approached ONE to redo the artwork and if anything, it had helped ONE’s creation become well-known internationally.

So far, I’m enjoying the series, especially its really crazy and outlandish characters. But I like how the series manages to balance humor and fighting violence quite well. And Saitama is so different from your usual protagonist character in a super hero comic, so I am enjoying what I’m reading so far.

While each volume is starting to ramp up and introduce us to more heroes, I’m not sure if these heroes will have a recurring role.  But for now, it’s great to see so many heroes in battle against the Deep Sea King and seeing if Saitama has what it takes to defeat him.

If you love action-driven manga series with a good amount of humor, definitely give “One-Punch Man” a shot!

MANGA TITLE: One-Punch Man Vol. 3

STORY BY: ONE

ART BY: Yusuke Murata

FIRST PUBLISHED IN JAPAN: Shueisha, Inc.

PUBLISHED IN USA BY: VIZ Media, LLC

RATED: T for Older Teen

Available on November 3, 2015


Nothing about Saitama passes the eyeball test when it comes to superheroes, from his lifeless expression to his bald head to his unimpressive physique. However, this average-looking guy has a not-so-average problem – he just can’t seem to find an opponent strong enough to take on! For three years, Saitama has defeated countless monsters, but no one knows about him… That’s because he isn’t in the Hero Association’s registry! Together with Genos, Saitama decides to take the Hero Association’s test! But can they pass?!


Saitama and Genos take the Hero Certification Exam, which determines a ranking of a hero who will take on various monsters or crime cases.

As Genos pays money to Saitama to be his mentor and also to live with him, we get to see how other “heroes” in the city are doing against the monsters.

Meanwhile, Speed-O-Sound Sonic is still wanting his revenge against Saitama, but what happens when he gets in Saitama’s way?

Find out in vol. 3 of the hit manga series “One-Punch Man” by One and Yusuke Murata!

What is “One-Punch Man” all about?

When it comes to success stories of web comics becoming viral, ONE’s “One-Punch Man” is one of the well-known titles that have taken the world by storm.

Created back in 2009 and having surpassed over 7.9 million hits in 2012, “One-Punch Man” would receive a digital manga remake featuring illustrations by Yusuke Murata (best known for his illustrations for the manga series, “Eyeshield 21”) and would be published on the Shueisha’s “Young Jump Web Comics” website.

In September 2015, Viz Media released the graphic novel for “One-Punch Man” in the United States and in October 2015, the anime adaptation for “One-Punch Man” began airing on Japanese television.

“One Punch Man” is set in City Z and monsters have been appearing in the city causing massive destruction.

But standing in their way is a skinny, bald man named Saitama who also happens to be extremely powerful and can defeat monsters with one punch. But because he often wins all the time, Saitama has grown bored and is often trying to find more powerful opponents.

In volume 1, Saitama takes on Vaccine Man who wants to eliminate humankind’s constant pollution of the environment by eliminating humanity. He also takes on the strongest of the Strongest Brothers.

One day, Saitama comes across a cyborg named Genos who is taking on a lady who is also a mosquito and can suck one’s life dry. Should Saitama help Genos?

In vol. 2, a group of monsters began attacking Saitama at his home. They have clearly targeted him and as Genos tries to assist, Saitama shows the cyborg his power once again.

But having learned that a mad scientist wants Saitama captured in order to study his body for research, the scientist gets ready to unleash his killer creation, Carnage Kabuto.

Meanwhile, a terrorist group is about to make its war on the rich of humanity, but a ninja known as Speed-O’-Sound Sonic goes to confront him. As Saitama comes across this ninja, is he friend or foe?

In volume 3, seeing how Saitama can defeat these tough monsters just with one punch, Genos wans Saitama to teach and train him to be a better hero.  And while Saitama accepts Genos to live with him (thanks to Genos offering him a huge amount of money), Saitama scores lower than Genos in the Hero Exam.  As Genos ranks S-class and Saitama ranks C-class, what happens when monsters run lose in the city? And how will the other heroes respond?


With the third volume of “One-Punch Man”, the story continues with Genos wanting Saitama to mentor and train him to be a better hero and to be powerful.

As Saitama keeps telling Genos to train hard and work out, Genos has a hard time believing that is all it takes (in truth, that’s all Saitama really did).  And now, both will not just live together but also take the hero exams to determine what rank they are.

And as the two focus on hero duties, the story then shows us other heroes who take on the monsters and seeing the challenges that are ahead for the many heroes who must take on the deadliest of villains.

Meanwhile, what happens when Speed-O’-Sound Sonic confronts Saitama yet again?

If anything, this latest manga series is very interesting because it let’s us know of the various super heroes out there but also the trouble that many of them faced because the villains are overpowering many of the heroes.

So, we are starting to see introductions of other super heroes in this third volume and learn more of their abilities.

For the most part, I’m really enjoying this series because the protagonist is quite unusual.  You think of a strong and charismastic super hero as your main protagonist, but the protagonist of “One-Punch Man” is a skinny baldheaded man named Saitama who doesn’t look menacing at all.

A person who became strong by working out constantly, he then lost all his hair an became super powerful.

Nothing about Saitama passes the eyeball test when it comes to superheroes, from his lifeless expression to his bald head to his unimpressive physique. However, this average-looking guy has a not-so-average problem – he just can’t seem to find an opponent strong enough to take on! Every time a promising villain appears, he beats the snot out of ’em with one punch! Can Saitama finally find an opponent who can go toe-to-toe with him and give his life some meaning? Or is he doomed to a life of superpowered boredom?


Saitama learns that a group is after him in order to use his superhuman physiology for their research.  In order to stop the mad scientist, Saitama and Genos have decided to take the battle to the scientist’s headquarters.  But inside the headquarters is a sadistic monster known as Carnage Kabuto.

Meanwhile, a criminal named Hammerhead and his Paradise Group are planning to  destroy every symbol of richness, but a ninja named Speed-o’-Sound Sonic stands in his way.  Who is this ninja?

Here we are with the second volume of ONE’s popular manga series “One-Punch Man”.  As Saitama and Genos join forces to take down a mad scientist.

As the storyline of even deadlier antagonists show up in the second volume, are they even a match for a powerful man, like Saitama?

The second volume also introduces us to a ninja named Speed-o’-Sound Sonic, who contracts for everything from assassinations to serving as a bodyguard for the rich and elite, and now he has been hired to take down a terrorist group who wants nothing but to destroy the symbol of wealth in the world.

But what happens when One-Punch Man and Speed-o’-Sound Sonic confront each other?

A friend of mine has raved about “One-Punch Man” for the past few years. Often telling me how it’s a unique storyline, it would be years later when I would read the first graphic novel from Viz Media and suffice to say, I’m quite surprised by this manga series.

For the most part, you think of a strong super hero as your main protagonist, but the protagonist of “One-Punch Man” is a skinny baldheaded man named Saitama who doesn’t look menacing at all.

A person who became strong by working out constantly, he then lost all his hair an became super powerful.

And where most heroes are proud of their work, Saitama is somewhat wanting the attention and respect that comes with being a hero, but yet hasn’t received it. So, Saitama is an interesting contrast to the stereotypical hero who is typically a person that is athletically fit, has a remarkable IQ or tremendous skillset, but for Saitama….he looks like a normal guy.

As the first volume is the introductory storyline and how Saitama was in the past, before he lost his hair, the second volume goes to show how bored Saitama is with his life and what happens when he accepts the cyborg Genos as his apprentice.

Having seen ONE’s original “One-Punch Man”, the artwork from the original versus Yusuke Murata’s artwork is night and day. I always enjoyed Murata’s work on “Eyeshield 21” but his work of bringing ONE’s “One-Punch” man to life is fantastic. It was Murata who approached ONE to redo the artwork and if anything, it had helped ONE’s creation become well-known internationally.

So far, I’m enjoying the series, especially its really crazy and outlandish characters.  But I like how the series manages to balance humor and fighting violence quite well.  And Saitama is so different from your usual protagonist character in a super hero comic, so I am enjoying what I’m reading so far.
