The over-the-top opening theme for ONE PUNCH MAN is entitled THE HERO!! by a band named JAM Project, where “JAM” is made up of the first letters of “Japan Animationsong Makers”. This group is in fact a super-group that is dedicated to anime music based in Japan and was originally founded by Ichirou Mizuki in July 19, 2000.

We’re sure most people have seen or at least have heard of the anime sensation, ONE PUNCH MAN, animated by the popular shonen JUMP! manga. This series is currently available for free on Daisuki for online streaming, and we highly recommend watching this show.

The members in this particular music video are as follows:

  • Hironobu Kageyama (Dragon Ball Z CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA)
  • Masaaki Endoh(Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s BELIEVE IN NEXUS
  • Hiroshi Kitadani (ONE PIECE We Are!)
  • Masami Okui (Revolutionary Girl Utena Rondo-revolution)
  • Yoshiki Fukuyama(MACROSS 7 SEVENTH MOON)

From the well-written YouTube description on THE HERO!! music video, they describe the process of creating each piece in the JAM Project:

Each member is involved with the entire song creation process. In order to make stronger connections between the animation and the theme songs, they start from meeting with animation producers and directors and go on to directing the creative process. They are performers and producers at the same time. All members also have very active solo work to stimulate each other. With each member possessing different characteristics to gather as one, JAM Project is able to create one-of-a-kind theme song. They have released more than 100 songs to date. All of the songs are powerful and spiritual, and can be seen as “Real Theme Songs”.
