One Punch Man Chapter 203 Release Delayed Due To Murata Redrawing Previous Chapters

One Punch Man creators ONE and Yusuke Murata had announced, on Mar 6, 2024, that the manga would go on a short break for Murata to revise and redraw chapters 195-202, basically the entire Ninja Village arc.

Chapter 202 dropped on Feb 21, teasing Blast vs Empty Void. As fans were hyped for the upcoming matchup, they were soon disappointed to learn that they have to wait for a while before Murata reaches that point again with the redraw.

There’s no official release date for Chapter 203 as of yet so stay tuned!

The translation of the above goes as follows:

“Thank you for reading Tonari No Young Jump’s One Punch Man! Regarding the release of the latest chapter (chapter 203), we are sorry to inform you that we will take a short break in order to revise and replace all chapters starting from chapter 195. These chapters that have already been published will be included in the “Complete Manuscripts” section of the bottom of this page. We hope you will enjoy comparing how the chapters were changed before and after the revision. We are working hard to publish the latest chapter, so please wait for a while!”
