Goku Battles One-Punch Man in Incredible Fan Animation

Nov 19, 2022 · 9


The worlds of Dragon Ball and One-Punch Man make an epic-scale collision course in a spectacle showcased in some fan-made animation.

The video clip, which is available on the Etoilec1 Animation YouTube channel, begins with battle-happy Goku wishing upon the Dragon Balls, asking for the strongest opponent to fight. Shenron obliges by summoning none other than the One Punch Man protagonist himself, Saitama. The ensuing fight manifests with a deluge of over-the-top action containing references to both iconic anime series.

The Dragon Ball multimedia mega-franchise began in 1984 when Akira Toriyama published the first chapter of his iconic, best-selling manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump. The original narrative follows Goku from childhood to adulthood as he trains in martial arts and battles dangerous but often absurd villains. Toei Animation adapted the story into two classic anime, starting with the 1986-debuted Dragon Ball, and handled the first 324 chapters of the manga. The studio would premiere the next iteration, Dragon Ball Z, in 1989 and covered the remaining chapters. The franchise now includes multiple anime and manga spinoffs as well as a plethora of tie-in films, companion books, theme park attractions and video games.

One of the upcoming video game releases, a DLC for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot titled "Bardock - Alone Against Fate," will adapt the storyline of the Dragon Ball Z: Bardock - The Father of Goku special. The DLC will drop sometime in 2023 and will be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

The ongoing One-Punch Man manga by One first appeared on Shueisha's Tonari no Young Jump website in June 2012. So far, the series has produced 27 volumes worth of content. The story focuses on Saitama, who starts out as an average Joe until he discovers the joys of fighting monsters. While not inherently gifted with any powers, he becomes the titular hero by doing a lot of sit-ups and push-ups. Over 30 million copies of One-Punch Man have been sold globally and, in 2015, the series was nominated for an Eisner Award.

One Punch Man Season 3's Status

One-Punch Man received an anime adaptation that aired for two seasons between October 2015 and July 2019. Madhouse (Death Note) animated the first season, while J.C.Staff (Edens Zero) took over production for the second season. A third season has been announced, but little information is known about it at the time of writing.

Both the Dragon Ball and One-Punch Man mangas are distributed in English by VIZ Media, and their respective anime adaptations are available on Crunchyroll.
