The Japanese retailer Manga-Oh is currently listing that a bundled edition of the 10th volume of ONE and Yuusuke Murata's One-Punch Man manga will include an original video anime (OVA). The retailer lists that the set will ship on December 4. The website lists that the regular edition volume will also ship on the same day.
The manga's TV anime adaptation by MADHOUSE and director Shingo Natsume (Space Dandy, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos) will premiere in Japan on TV Tokyo and Niconico Live on Sunday, October 4 at 25:05 (effectively, Monday, October 5 at 1:05 a.m.).
No date or time given for Daisuki, Niconico, and Viz Media/Neon Alley. I hope Crunchyroll picks up One Punch Man. Neon Alley is also streamed on HULU. HULU is known for being late with their anime simulcasts (case in point -> Overlord and Snow White with the Red Hair)
Daisuki will stream the series starting on October 5 at 12:35 p.m. EDT. The site will stream the series in North America, Central America, Latin America, Europe, and South Korea. Those who are logged in to Daisuki can watch the episode in 1080p.
Daisuki will stream the series in North America, Central America, and Latin America with English, Latin American Spanish, and Portuguese subtitles. The site will stream the series in Europe with English and French subtitles, and then with Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, and Russian subtitles a week later. The company will stream the series in South Korea with English subtitles starting on October 12 at 1:05 a.m. JST, and with Korean subtitles starting on October 26 at 1:05 a.m. JST.
Got an ANN article reporting that a Spanish anime streaming site, Selecta Visión, listing the episode count for One-Punch Man at 12 episodes. I'm not sure about the credibility of the site. Will just leave this until we get official confirmation.
Kind of interesting how every villain Saitama faces share their backstory while Saitama's backstory is pretty simple. The animation in this show's fight scenes reminds me of Kill la Kill minus the fan service.
Definitely will watch the series. It's unique how this hero isn't like your average Shonen protagonist, no tragic backstory or any ambitions. Also, he looks like that bald guy in Bleach.
Last Edit: Oct 4, 2015 23:49:25 GMT by Taka: added GIF to show the animation
Taka: While Saitama's backstory and reason of being a hero is simple, he manages to take an interesting spin on things throughout the episode. I hope things will be a lot more fun along the way and I have a pretty good gut feeling about Genos...
Current Situation: It's too late. They drank all the chocolate milk.
Before I tried the series, I thought he would be a dull character due to the expressions I seen him make. I agree. Without any one strong to give him a serious challenge, he does his heroism without aim or for anything.
More updates with the OVA for the series and the Blu-Ray
The official website for the One-Punch Man television anime series revealed on Monday that the first limited-edition Blu-ray Disc and DVD release of the series will include an OVA listed as "OVA #01." The 10-minute "Shinobiyori Sugiru Kage" (A Shadow That Snuck Up Too Close) OVA will feature a completely original story written by the manga's original author ONE.
Other video extras for the first limited-edition Blu-ray Disc and DVD include the first promo video, the advance event screening cast talk, and the "One-Punch Man Hamidashi Gekijō" (ONE Punch Man Forced Out Theater) episodes #01 and #02. Physical extras include a "One-Punch Man All Stars" clear poster, a priority sales application ticket for an event to be held on September 25, 2016, a CD with a character song for Saitama and a mini drama featuring Saitama and Genos, and a 12-page booklet. Anime character designer Chikaishi Kubot will illustrate the special jacket for the home video. The first home video release will also feature cast commentary for the first episode.
The release will include two episodes and will ship on December 24. The Blu-ray Disc is retailing for 7,000 yen (about US$58), and the DVD is retailing for 6,000 yen (about US$50).
Amazon is listing that the anime will have six home video releases.
Those who purchase all six of the home video releases in advance from various retailers will also receive bonus extra items, such as a foot-tall punching balloon (from Animate), a drama CD (Amazon), a pair of trunks (Seven Net Shopping), an A4 binder (Softmap), or a sleeve case (Tsutaya). Those who purchase each of the six home video releases from Animate will also receive an A4 clear file with each release. Those who purchase the first release before November 15 from specific retailers will receive a key visual A4 clear file.
The Japanese retailer Manga-Oh is additionally listing that a bundled edition of the 10th volume of ONE and Yuusuke Murata's original One-Punch Man manga will include an original video anime (OVA). The retailer lists that the set will ship on December 4.
Shame that the first episode had a such a huge wow factor and then it simmers to a screeching halt in this episode. It was way too dragged out and slow. Humor is a bit dry since I feel it was funny the first time but not second time. The ending song is a bit sleepy and boring. It's the opposite of the yelling singer in the OP song which has a lot of energy. Not a fan of songs with a bunch of yelling.

graet ArtisteTakaMaster MenosHungryWorldShines Guess I'm going to try out One Punch Man through its anime. So far it's actually really good lol. Madhouse was a great animation studio for it. If ONLY they kept doing Toriko, that would've been great -_- But I digress lol
Crazy Diamond Please don't mention the Toriko anime, just don't... that ending still makes me cringe as does all the censorship. But as for this show only seen episode 1 so far, but expecting episode 2 to be great as well. Hope it lives up to the quality of the manga in humor.
Taka: It's back to Persona 5, the Royale version. I'll take a break for today.

Old Man Dream: Bambi's done. Will get around to doing a review for it sometime today.

Taka: Felt awkward watching Rambo Last Stand when your old man wants to check the Rambo movies on Prime. There were only 2 movies underneath it. I might write a review on it.

Taka: Welcome to Anime Vice. Please check the battle rules. It's best to make a battle thread in the forums not the chat box.

Old Man Dream: Update with Three Callaberos. Only about halfway through it at the moment. Because it's a package film with a series of animated shorts, been taking my time getting through it this past week. Never got around to seeing it last night since I got swamped...

Old Man Dream: ...in my freelance work. But will try to get through it as I have time to do so.

Old Man Dream: Done with Three Callaberos. See if I can do some sort of review for it tonight or if not, tomorrow at the latest.
