One-Punch Man, the story of an unlikely superhero who can defeat any opponent with a single blow, was a fan favorite when the first season of its anime was released in 2015. However, if you’ve only watched the anime and never read the manga, then you’ve been waiting to see what’s next for the past four years.

While the manga has been readily available for purchase in physical and digital form at retailers like Amazon in volumes, fans of the new Shonen Jump digital platform have not been able to read it per chapter digitally — until now.

The Shonen Jump digital releases for One-Punch Man are slightly behind the current run that’s on Japanese store shelves, but what’s available to read will bring fans up to speed on everything that’s happened after the events of the first season of the anime. Readers can get caught up on One-Punch Man and enjoy several other full archives of manga on Shonen Jump’s digital platform for $1.99 per month.

As for the anime, Viz Media has confirmed that season 2 will be released on April 9 on Hulu. You can also watch the full first season of the anime for free in subtitled and dubbed form, for free, on Viz’s website.

Correction (March 6): A previous version of this article stated that One-Punch Man was not available elsewhere digitally. However, the series was previously available on retailers like Amazon via Kindle and ComiXology. We’ve edited the article to reflect this.
