What started out as a simply practice comic by webcomic manga artist O N E as a way to learn how to use some new comic-making software, has turned into one of the most popular anime/manga franchises in recent memory. After the first one shot received a positive response, he went and made another chapter. After the second chapter received even more praise, ONE continued to produce more chapters before finally deciding to make it a full blown webcomic series.

As the popularity of his webcomic grew, it attracted the attention of manga artist Yusuke Murata, of Eyeshield 21 fame. He approached 
ONE, and proposed a collaboration for the series. In June 2012 the remake of the series with Murata's art was published on Shueisha's Young Jump Web Comics website. The series eventually had an anime series made by studio MADHOUSE, who also made Trigun, and the Death Note anime series. With its action-packed animation, and opening theme by JAM Project, the twelve episode series has become incredibly popular worldwide; and we're all early awaiting the release of the second season.

But what is One Punch Man about you may ask? Well, what do you get when a superhero trains himself to the point enemies can no longer scratch him, and he can defeat them in just one punch? One very bored superhero. That's who the protagonist: Saitama, has to deal with. In his city where a crazy cast of color heroes, villains, and monsters clash regularly, Saitama goes about his daily 
superhero life searching for that one individual who can give him a real challenge. 

The statue itself stands about 24 inches tall, making it one of the largest pieces from First 4 Figures. The amount of detail put into the 
polystone figure is amazing, with all the details of the creases in Saitama's body suit, gloves, and cape. It really captures Murata's dynamic artwork. Even the broken road that makes up the stand looks great! Each of the statues includes a hand numbered base, authenticity card, and comes in a deluxe full-colored package.

This statue is sure to be the centerpiece of any collection. Whether you be a fan of One Punch Man or not, this is an incredible figure to own. Releasing at the end of April 2017, be sure to get your pre-order in before the deadline!!
