ONE's signature

Tomohiro or ONE (born October 29, 1986)[1][2] is the alias of a Japanese manga artist, best known for his manga series One-Punch Man (2009–present), which is remade by Yusuke Murata.[3][4] ONE serialized One-Punch Man under his own website with no official publisher. The remake is serialized in the web version of Weekly Young Jump. He is a manga artist for fun. He serialized Mob Psycho 100 in the online version of Weekly Shōnen Sunday known as Ura Sunday,[5] which ended in December 2017.

He was born in Niigata and was brought up in Kōnosu, Saitama.[6] When ONE was much younger he made several manga that never got serialized such as "Taiyo Man" (Sun Man) and "Tennis Player Ryu".[7][8]

ONE and Yusuke Murata received the Best Manga Sugoi Japan Award 2016. The award aims to promote works that have "universality," "originality", and "potential" to be big international hits.[9]
