One-Punch Man created initially by ONE in 2009 as a webcomic was adapted into a manga by Yusuke Murata. Its anime adaptation (with the same name) was the biggest anime sensation of 2015, telling the story of the hero who is just too strong.
The second season of One-Punch man ended a couple of months ago, and there’s no season three insight. However, the One-Punch Man manga is still going strong, with chapter 131 being released on 21st April. Yet, the manga has seen a few delays recently.
One-Punch Man’s 132nd chapter is facing some delays. However, unlike the current trend, it is not because of COVID-19. Yusuke Murata Tweeted that previous chapters of the battle between Child Emperor and Phoenix Man are being redrawn.
お待たせしております。今週も２２巻の単行本作業があるので更新はお休みさせていただきます。現在童帝対フェニックス男戦の改変をしています。書き上がり次第丸々差し代わってこの旧バージョンは番外編ページに移動すると思います。その際は比較して楽しんでいただければ。https://t.co/n6sMEp39BA— 村田雄介 (@NEBU_KURO) May 14, 2020
We are waiting for you. Since there are 22 volumes of book work this week as well, updates will be closed. We are currently modifying the Dojo vs. Phoenix male game. This old version will move to the extra page as soon as it is written. In that case, please compare and enjoy.English Translation, Twitter Translate
The length of the delay is not yet clear. Chapter 131 was also delayed for unexplained reasons, but only for a short duration.
The Tweet also said that the old panels would be added to extra pages as soon as the new ones have been drawn. The fight between Phoenix Man and Child Emperor was very intense. It marked the first time we saw Child Emperor going all out, and he did this to save one ungrateful boy.
Phoenix Man, as the name suggests, came back stronger every time he was defeated. He took on several forms in the battle, each exponentially stronger than the last.
Even though fans are waiting for the story to continue for the decisive battle between Tatsumaki and Psykos, it will definitely be fun to see the Child Emperor vs Phoenix Man battle with more details.
About One Punch Man
One-Punch Man is a Japanese superhero webcomic created by the artist One in early 2009. It has a manga adaptation illustrated by Yusuke Murata, as well as an anime adaptation. Following its publication, the webcomic quickly went viral, surpassing 7.9 million hits in June 2012.
On an unnamed Earth-like supercontinent planet, powerful monsters and villains have been wreaking havoc in the cities. To combat them, the world’s government created a Hero Association that employs superheroes to stop them. The heroes are ranked from Class C to Class S.
Saitama, an unassociated hero, hails from the metropolis of City-Z and performs heroic deeds for his own entertainment. He has trained himself to the point where he broke his “limit” and can effortlessly defeat any opponent with a single punch while slaying monsters the same way. But he is now bored with his omnipotence and frustrated by sensing he lacks a challenge.
