VIZ Media is ready to go another round with hard-hitting anime hit One-Punch Man, having secured the master license for Season 2. The deal covers digital streaming, TV broadcast, EST, home media and merchandising right for the property in North America, Latin America and Oceania. Details about the new season TBA.
VIZ is also the exclusive North American English-language publisher for the One-Punch Man manga series — created by ONE and re-illustrated by Yusuke Murata — widely available in print and digital.
The smashing brand will also be among VIZ’s offerings at Licensing Expo in Las Vegas (May 22-24, Booth #R202).
One-Punch Man depicts the adventures of Saitama, a young man who only became a hero for fun. But after three years of “special” training, he finds that he can beat even the mightiest opponents with a single punch. Though he faces new enemies every day, it turns out being devastatingly powerful is actually kind of a bore. Can a hero be too strong?
