One-Punch Man English language voice artists Zach Aguilar (Genos), Eric Scott Kimerer (Speed-o’-Sound Sonic), and Chris Jai Alex (Boros) will join members of the VIZ Media animation team at NYCC for a panel on Saturday.

One-Punch Man is based on the bestselling manga series currently serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump and graphic novels published by VIZ Media, created by writer ONE and artist Yusuke Murata.

In the anime adaptation, Saitama only became a hero for fun, but after three years of “special” training, he finds that he can beat even the mightiest opponents with a single punch. Though he faces new enemies every day, it turns out being devastatingly powerful is actually kind of a bore. Can a hero be too strong? The series features a notable cast of English voice actors including Max Mittelman (as Saitama), Zach Aguilar (as Genos), Robbie Daymond (as Mumen Rider), Erik Scott Kimerer (as Speed-o’-Sound Sonic) and Chris Jai Alex (as Boros).
