The creator simply known as ONE has become a force to be reckoned wih in the anime world, creating such powerhouse series as Mob Psycho 100 and One-Punch Man. With each of these series being perhaps best known for their amazing action set pieces and hard-knuckle battles that can come close to ending entire worlds, the mangaka is set to explore a new world that will see humans fighting demons as the fate of the world hangs in the balance.
Versus, as it has been described so far, will focus on forty-seven heroes that are pitted against forty-seven demons in a battle that sounds similar to the likes of Record of Ragnarok, an anime series that saw some of humanity’s finest pitted against the strongest deities in an effort to save the planet Earth. Set to arrive on November 26th, the series will be released via one of Shueisha’s biggest publications and will see the mysterious manga writer teaming up with artist Kyoutaro Azuma, who has worked on some notable fighting manga in the past including King of Fighters and Tenkaichi for example.
The upcoming Shonen Sirius publication has a new cover that features two of the main protagonists of ONE’s new series, showing off one of the warriors that will be defending mankind and what appears to be some sort of pig, fairy creature that will most likely be the comic relief in this wild war:On the anime front, ONE has some big things on the horizon as Mob Psycho 100 continues to release new episodes as a part of its third season focusing on the powerful headcase known as Mob, and One-Punch Man has confirmed that a third season is on the way which will further dive into the conflict between Saitama and the Monster Association. With the latter also set to receive a live-action feature-length film from Sony Entertainment, plenty of anime fans are anxious to see what new stories ONE has bouncing around their head and they’ll find out in a few days’ time.
