The seemingly ordinary and unimpressive Saitama has a rather unique hobby: being a hero. In order to pursue his childhood dream, he trained relentlessly for three years—and lost all of his hair in the process. Now, Saitama is incredibly powerful, so much so that no enemy is able to defeat him in battle. In fact, all it takes to defeat evildoers with just one punch has led to an unexpected problem—he is no longer able to enjoy the thrill of battling and has become quite bored.

This all changes with the arrival of Genos, a 19-year-old cyborg, who wishes to be Saitama's disciple after seeing what he is capable of. Genos proposes that the two join the Hero Association in order to become certified heroes that will be recognized for their positive contributions to society, and Saitama, shocked that no one knows who he is, quickly agrees. And thus begins the story of One Punch Man, an action-comedy that follows an eccentric individual who longs to fight strong enemies that can hopefully give him the excitement he once felt and just maybe, he'll become popular in the process.

Animation: The best damn quality I've ever seen.
Characters: The best deconstruction of the superhero genre I've seen so far.

One of the best animation I have seen. Looks like the studio is only getting started and all the heavy stuff will just explode on us later. Saitama is just the funniest person I've ever seen and I SWEAR he's based off Shine.

Just gonna leave this here.

The animation is so well done! I'm hyped for the next episode to come out. I just really wanna see Genos and Sonic animated (no, the other sonic).

ALSO Metal Bat's seiyuu is the same one who voiced Josuke Higashikata from Jojo's Adventures. I wanted Mondo Oowada's VA but Josuke and Metal Bat have the same hairstyle nearly. So it's okay. B)

I wonder how the others will sound like? (The ones not voiced in the PV). I wasn't expecting Zombieman to have such a color palette either. XD

I can't stop watching the part when Saitama just comes out of the hole and punches that Giant dude. Just... WOW.

A friend strongly recommended this, so I went at read first 10 chapters or so. The story didn't hook me.
If he can one hit K.O. anyone then there is no problem, which translate to nothing interesting ever happening since any fight's outcome is already known.

Well, that's kinda the point. Saitama is very powerful but he's bored of his power. It's a deconstruction of typical Superhero stories. Besides, it's funny at some times! xD
