In a May 25 tweet that went viral, anime fan killugonist pointed out the insane progress that YouTuber Tarue assault has made over the last two years with his daily 1000 punches.

“There’s this guy who live streams himself doing 1,000 punches a day until Hunter x Hunter resumes,” the tweet read. “Look how tattered his clothes are now compared to when he first started,” they noted.

The tweet has since blown up in the anime community, amassing over 110k likes and close to 15k retweets in just under a day, with other fans showing admiration in the replies.

Making the Japanese creator’s dedication even more impressive, he did a mind-blowing 10,000 punches instead of 1,000 during his May 25 live stream, which lasted for almost 11 hours.
