One Punch Man Illustrator Yusuke Murata Wants To Start His Own Animation Studio

A punch Illustrator Yusuke Murata recently had a chat with Michael B. Jordan, which was published by Comic Natalie on May 26, 2023.

During the conversation, Jordan mentioned that he was influenced by anime since he was 8 years old and wanted to collaborate with like-minded creators in the industry.

Since the age of 8, I have been influenced by Japanese anime, so being able to collaborate with creators that I love is pure happiness. I have a strong desire to work with people who share the same sensibilities as me. Even though I just met Murata-sensei today, I feel like we’ve met before. There is a strange feeling of familiarity.

In response to this, Yusuke Murata revealed that he shares the same sentiment and has aspirations beyond the manga industry. He wants to start his own animation studio, go deeper into the industry, and create more anime.

I’m glad to hear that. I also have aspirations beyond manga. I have a desire to start an animation studio and continue to challenge myself in the world of anime. I believe that creators are like fighters, always looking for their job.

Murata is currently working on his first anime project, titled Zaiyuki.

Yusuke Murata is a Japanese mangaka and animator, best known for illustrating One’s One-punch manserialized in the Weekly Young Jump online release.

Murata’s other major work is his illustration of the American football manga Eyeshield 21in collaboration with writer Riichiro Inagaki. Eyeshield 21 was serialized between July 2002 and June 2009 in Weekly Shonen Jump, and was later adapted into an anime television series.
