TOMOHIRO, better known throughout the world by his pen name, ONE, is a mangaka who rose to popularity due to the success of his mangas, One Punch Man, and Mob Psycho 100. Both manga series has been adapted into anime, and both anime are included in the list of most popular anime.
According to a credible source, ONE’s new manga series will be an action fantasy manga titled “VERSUS.” While the story will be written by ONE, the art will be provided by Azuma Kyoutarou, who has worked on manga like Tenkaichi and King of Fighters. The first chapter of Versus is scheduled to release on November 26, 2022, in Shounen Sirius issue 1. This will be ONE’s first new manga series in 10 years.
Not much is known about the story of the new manga series. According to the little information available, 47 heroes will be selected to fight against the 47 demons of the Demon Lord. From this info, it looks like we can expect something similar to Record of Ragnarok manga series, which has a similar concept of 13 humans vs 13 gods to save humanity.
The announcement of ONE’s new manga series doesn’t mean that One Punch Man webcomic will end soon. Mangakas are known for their tough work schedules. Most mangaka sleep only a few hours a day to meet deadlines. One Punch Man fans shouldn’t be worried about the quality of the story as working on more than one manga series is not something new.
For example, Reiji Miyajima has 2 ongoing manga series (Rent A Girlfriend, and The Children of Shiunji). Similarly, Aka Akasaka works on 2 manga series (Kaguya Sama: Love Is War, Oshi no Ko).
