One Punch Man Preview
Coming up this October, one of the most anticipated animes of the year will start airing. One Punch Man. Madhouse is the studio that picked it up, which is a wonderful, wonderful thing. As Madhouse is known for their incredible manga adaptations (Death Note and Parasyte are two good examples), and One Punch Man is known for being incredibly detailed. So detailed that gifs of the panels put together like a flipbook appear to be animated better than a lot of anime.
The story is pretty simple. Here is the synopsis from MyAnimeList.com:
A lot of people are really, really looking forward to this becoming a show. So much so that before MyAnimeList changed their rating policy for unaired shows, One Punch Man made it up to within the top 30. That says a lot. Of course, with this much hype there will be a lot that the anime has to live up to. Of course, with Madhouse at the reigns we should remain pretty hopeful.
In this new action-comedy, everything about a young man named Saitama screams “AVERAGE,” from his lifeless expression, to his bald head, to his unimpressive physique. However, this average-looking fellow doesn’t have your average problem… He’s actually a superhero that’s looking for tough opponents! The problem is, every time he finds a promising candidate he beats the snot out of them in one punch. Can Saitama finally find an evil villain strong enough to challenge him? Follow Saitama through his hilarious romps as he searches for new bad guys to challenge!
And with that, lets watch the short trailer they’ve released:
