Saitama’s success story in the cultural world
One Punch Man was created in 2009. The anime character was born as a ‘web comic’ and focuses on the life of a superhero named Saitama. This guy has the power to defeat any enemy with a single blow, since he has trained more than necessary. Saitama soon gets bored of this situation and only wants to find a bigger challenge or simply do the shopping on the days that there are sales and discounts. Following the quick success of the story, the artist and creator known as ONE left the ‘web comic’ and went to the publisher Jump Next in 2012. ONE joined the artist Yusuke Murata and that’s how it all came about. First, manga; then anime, and then video games. Now he will have a ‘live action’ movie with the director of fast and furious.
