Video Review: One-Punch Man

What’s this? A video review from the Herald crew? Impossible! It would have to be the year 2016, or something!

Joking aside, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you. We’ve finally entered the 21st century with our first video review! Now, from time to time, we’ll be taking the chance to talk nerdy directly to you through the magic of video streaming services.

Dorian spearheaded this initiative, diving into the world of video publication with gusto. His first foray into the format is fitting, as he takes a look at 2015 mega-hit One-Punch Man. Did the series blow away the competition, or did it fall to a shocking proverbial gut-punch?

You can check out the review below:

One-Punch Man is based on One and Yuusuke Murata’s webcomic of the same name. Shingo Natsume (Hori-san to Miyamura-kun) directed the title at Madhouse, with Chikashi Kubota (Corpse Princess, Robotics;Notes) providing character designs. Tomohiro Suzuki (Tiger & Bunny) wrote the show’s scripts.

Viz Media currently holds the domestic rights to One-Punch Man, and offers the series in its entirety on Hulu. Due to Hulu’s service restrictions, Viz’s stream is only available in the United States.
