Yusuke Murata, the artist of the Eyeshield 21 manga and more recently the highly regarded One-Punch Man, served as the original character designer for the Majin Bone anime. You can now see what his work looks like in motion because the acclaimed artist joined the animation staff as a guest for a cut of this week's episode 12. Get a look after the jump.
Japanese fan artists have spent the last couple weeks furiously tracing over the ending dance to sexy swimming anime Free!, recasting its gyrating guys with characters from Attack on Titan, Kuroko's Basketball, Magi, Danganronpa and even One-Punch Man. A lot of the work is unfinished, but its impressive never the less. Get a look at the results after the jump.
Maybe he's joking, because frankly this sounds a bit suicidal. Chapter 29 of One-Punch Man hit Japan, and it's full of the decompressed, superlatively kinetic super hero action for which the manga has been widely praised. It's also only 9 pages. Yusuke Murata took to Twitter to apologize for the brevity and say he's going to challenge himself with a 100-page chapter next. More after the jump.
Manga/comics is a medium built around the idea that the mind will fill in what happens between image panels. This affords a lot of room for cheating logic, with even respected action manga illustrators not paying much attention to making sense of how bodies get from one image to the next. In contrast, Yusuke Murata's One-Punch Man makes a study of that space between images. See the results animated after the jump.
Shonen Jump Alpha announced the latest addition to its lineup, and the honor goes to One-Punch Man! The series, which kicks off next issue, is written by ONE and illustrated by Eyeshield 21 artist Yūsuke Murata. Read on for more!
