The team decided to have the hero “cosplays” as the One-Punch Man character instead of creating a fully 1-to-1 skin. They wanted to stay true to Genos’s design but didn’t want to lose Genji in the process. Fortunately, the concept artists have successfully captured their main aesthetics.

You will surely find fascinating nods toward the One-Punch Man series.
