Learn to Dance With Saitama In “One-Punch Ondo” Video

As we all know, Saitama has a not-so-secret recipe to his success. His rigorous daily schedule includes a hundred push-ups, sit-ups, and squats, in addition to a full 10 kilometer run. Maybe he should also start talking up his dance routines?

Earlier today, Bandai Visual released a new promotional short to their YouTube channel. The feature, titled Minna de Odorou! Saitama no “WanPan Ondo” Furitsuke Kaisetsu Mūbī (Everybody Dance! “One-Punch Ondo” Choreography Commentary With Saitama), was released to promote the upcoming “Wanpan Autumn Festival” fan event.

As one can expect, things get a bit weird. The feature sees Saitma cutting a rug to a One-Punch-ified festival tune, as he listlessly rattles off instructions.


And before you ask, no, I don’t know why there’s a puppet.

For newcomers to the franchise, One-Punch Man is based on Yuusuke Murata and ONE’s manga of the same name. Shingo Natsume (Space Dandy) directed the series at Madhouse, with Chikashi Kubota (Robotics;Notes) providing character designs. Tomohiro Suzuki (Tiger & Bunny) wrote the show’s scripts, while Makoto Miyazaki (Triage X) scored the soundtrack.

Viz currently holds the license for the series, which currently airs on Toonami.
