Kinnikuman, also known as Ultimate Muscle in English, was published in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 1979 to 1987.
In 1983, the manga also inspired an anime adaptation. Later in 2011, the series was republished in Shueisha’s web magazine, Shu Play News, and also has spin-off manga series, anime films, video games, and merchandise.
