On July 23, 2002, American football manga Eyeshield 21 launched in Weekly Shonen Jump. While artist Yusuke Murata has been busy with One-Punch Man and Majin Bone, he's taken the occasion of 21's 12th anniversary to sketch out a special tribute. Get a look 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.
Manga artist Yusuke Murata (Eyeshield 21 and more recently One-Punch Man) has been tweeting pictures of his characters painted on his fingers... which build up to some amazing, sexy hand art. Get a look after the jump.
After previously debuting in a pin-up, the unusual magical girl with "ultra-hydraulic cylinder" cyborg arms that Eyeshield 21 artist Yusuke Murata teased in January has premiered in a Miracle Jump magazine one shot. More after the jump.
Eyeshield 21 artist Yūsuke Murata recently completed a Twitter masterpiece, and his inventive online comic can be read in its entirety. While it's enjoyable enough even if you don't know Japanese, we thought it would be fun to take a closer look at the work, and provide English translations for MAXIMUM IMPACT! Comic past the break!
