Earlier this week, Yusuke Murata, the talented artist behind the One Punch Man manga, announced the debut of his new anime project, “Zaiyuki”, on his Twitter profile.
The project was created in collaboration with Village Studio, and the first part of the anime was released in two separate videos on Murata’s profile. Although the videos lack audio, the Japanese dialogue is displayed through on-screen text, allowing viewers to follow along with the characters’ conversations.
On February 24th, Murata took to Twitter to share a teaser video for his new anime project, Zaiyuki. This comes after he directed and animated a 107-second One-Punch Man anime short in September 2021, also in collaboration with Village Studio.

Murata and web manga creator ONE originally launched One-Punch Man on Shueisha’s free “Tonari no Young Jump” website in 2012. The series is a remake of ONE’s original web manga of the same name. Viz Media is currently releasing the series digitally as part of its Weekly Shonen Jump subscription, as well as in print.
In addition, Viz Media has released all 37 volumes of Murata and Riichirou Inagaki’s Eyeshield 21 manga in North America. This manga inspired a 145-episode television anime series in 2005-2008, which was later released on home video by Sentai Filmworks in 2010-2011. The series is currently available for streaming on Crunchyroll.
