One-Punch Man is a manga series that belongs to the superhero franchise that has been created by ONE, the artist. The manga series debuted in the year 2009, while a remake of the same was published by Shueisha in the year 2014. In 2017, the series went on a hiatus until it resumed publication in April of 2019.
The series is written by ONE and illustrations are provided by Yusuke Murata. It currently boasts 149 solid chapters which are dispersed across 23 volumes. The most recent chapter was released earlier this month, and since it ended on a cliffhanger there is immense anticipation surrounding the release of the next chapter.
The Premise of One-Punch Man
The setting of the series is on a supercontinent Earth, where a millionaire by the name of Agori creates a Hero Association in order to combat the havoc that is being created by monsters and villains. The series follows Saitama, who also happens to be the titular character, as the protagonist of the series. Having trained himself to the point where he has the ability to knock enemies out with a single punch, he initially remains unassociated with the Hero Association.
He then happens to meet and mentor Genos, a cyborg on a quest to avenge his family’s death. Saitama and Genos decide to join the Hero Association, but Saitama gets placed at a low-entry rank due to his lackluster performance in the written test. The series hereon introduces the rivals of the Hero Association, namely, the Monster Association and Garo, a rogue martial artist, and a series of subsequent battles ensue.
After the Hero Association’s poor performance in a battle due to their overconfidence, they lose the public’s trust despite Saitama salvaging the battle by defeating Garo. Owing to this, many heroes either retire or join the Neo Heroes, who are a group of flourishing heroes that seem to be handling the ongoing conflict with the monsters in a more formidable manner. What lies ahead forms a large part of the series’ subsequent events.
When Will Chapter 150 be Releasing?
Ever since the series came off-hiatus, the publications have been happening regularly, with two chapters being released every month. Since Chapter 149 was released earlier this month and the creator has not announced any hiatus, it can almost certainly be said that Chapter 150 would release by the end of July 2020, although an exact date isn’t known.
Where can the Series be Read?
The manga is available for readers to access digitally through multiple online platforms. The most assured websites are Viz Media and Manga Plus. The series can also be read by downloading the official Shonen Jump app, and a few selected chapters can be read for free without having to purchase a subscription. Subscription is inevitable if one wants to read the entire series. Apart from these, there are multiple websites that may provide free access, however, it cannot be assured if these are safe or legitimate.
