The protagonist of One-Punch Man is Saitama, an average-looking young man who wins all of his battles with just one punch. His power causes great frustration as he “no longer feels the thrill and adrenaline rush of fighting a tough battle.” The anime adaption of the manga stars Makoto Furukawa as Saitama. It is animated by Madhouse and directed by Shingo Natsume. VIZ Media of San Francisco manages the license for OnePunch-Man in North America.
