Yusuke Murata Career

Murata debuted as a professional manga artist in 1995 by publishing a one-shot titled Partner in a special edition of Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump. For this work, he received the Hop Step Award. Murata published Samui Hanashi in Weekly Shōnen Jump in June 1998, which won him the Akatsuka Award. In February 2002, he published Kaitō Colt in the same exact magazine.

From 2008 to 2010, Weekly Shōnen Jump published once a month a chapter of Hetappi Manga Kenkyūjo R (lit. “Hetappi Manga Research Lab R”), Murata’s remake of Akira Toriyama’s Hetappi Manga Kenkyūjo. It is a story about Saitou, a Jump editor based on Murata and Inagaki’s own editor on Eyeshield 21, who decides to become a manga artist and threatens Murata to teach him how to draw manga. A collected volume of the series was released by Shueisha on June 3, 2011. In 2012, Murata posted on Twitter a short story in the same universe in which Saitou pesters the Murata for his manuscript and it was well received for its inventive use of folded paper, cutouts and white-out to create a three-dimensional appearance for his comic.

In 2012, Murata published two one-shots along with a Japanese web comic author dubbed “One”; the first one, Dotō no Yūshatachi, was released on April 1 in Weekly Young Jump, and the second, Dangan Tenshi Fan Club was released on April 17 in Miracle Jump. Murata started to collaborate with One on the remake of the webcomic One-Punch Man, which started to be serialized in the online version of the Weekly Young Jump on June 14, 2012. Eighteen volumes have been released by Shueisha as of December 4, 2018. An anime adaptation, directed by Shingo Natsume and produced by Madhouse, aired from October 2015 to December 2015.

In November 2013, Murata was hired to be the character designer for the Majin Bone anime adaptation that began in April 2014. For Square Enix’s magazine Young Gangan‘s 10th anniversary issue published on March 20, 2015, Murata did the illustration for One’s Gokiburi Buster, a story about a soldier who is specialized on killing cockroaches. On June 30, 2016, Murata started to publish Mangaka Yashoku Benkyuusho (lit. “Manga Artist’s Late-Night Snack Laboratory”) on Kodansha magazine Morning digital edition. Each chapter features a fictionalized version of Murata preparing dishes, and its 33 chapters have been released into a single volume on December 12, 2016.

On May 10, 2019, Murata’s father passed away – this information was announced by Yusuke Murata and his brother Kensuke Murata. He announced on Twitter that he has a son, born in 2007, and a daughter, born in 2010, and he uses his daughter’s character to illustrate Zenko and his son to illustrate Bateman on One-Punch Man (season 2). Zenko somewhat reminds Murata of his daughter because of the fact she plays the piano like her.
