Watch 'One Punch Man's Illustrator Sketch Fubuki

One Punch Man is a fan favorite action series because of its content, humor, and especially because of the amazing way it's been translated from ONE's original webcomic to Weekly Shonen Jump by illustrator Yusuke Murata.

Yusuke Murata is a high-class artist and watching him work is astounding. Especially when seen drawing Fubuki. This video by Friki Desu shows Murata in action from outline to final product, and demonstrates why he's such a beast on an artist.

This beastly talent was also shown off in the adaptation of ONE's massive chapter, which totaled in at over 100 pages, each showing off incredible art. As for Fubuki, she has yet to make a big impact in the anime series, but she's clearly a favorite of Murata's. Fubuki is an ESP user, and the younger sister of S-Class Hero Tatsumaki and is tired of living in her sister's big shadow.

Illustrator for the Weekly Shonen Jump version of the series, Yusuke Murata also regularly shares art that sets the Internet on fire like his sketches of famous Dragon Ball characters. He previously shared a sketch of the series' second lead Genos in a much cooler pose to also celebrate the new chapter. Murata's art is so great, he has also contributed to Marvel projects, even going so far as to draw an official poster for Spider-Man: Homecoming to commemorate its Japanese boxset release.

For those unfamiliar with One Punch Man, the series follows Saitama, a regular working Joe who one day puts a stop to a violent villain attack. After this fight Saitama is inspired to become a hero. Training his body hard everyday, he's eventually granted with extreme strength. Looking for a worthy opponent, Saitama joins the Hero Association in the hopes of fighting them. But every fight he gets into ends after a single punch! Forced to wander through life increasingly bored of his supreme power, Saitama has become hilariously disconnected with the world of action around him.

One Punch Man started life as a webcomic by series creator ONE in 2009. After going viral, surpassing seven million hits in June 2012, illustrator Yusuke Murata approached ONE about redrawing the series for a release in Shuiesha's Weekly Young Jump spin-off webcomics. Thirteen volumes of the series have been released as of this date.

VIZ Media bought the rights to distribute the manga in English, and the series was later adapted into a 12 episode anime series from Madhouse. The series first aired in Japan in 2015, and later debuted its English language broadcast on Adult Swim's Toonami block in 2016. A second season of the series is currently in the works.
