Saitama is a hero who only became a hero for fun. After three years of 'special' training, though, he's become so strong that he's practically invincible. In fact, he's too strong, even his mightiest opponents are taken out with a single punch, and it turns out that being devastatingly powerful is actually kind of a bore. With his passion for being a hero lost along with his hair, yet still faced with new enemies every day, how much longer can he keep it going?

This is a great show. I love how much of an unpredictable comedy it is. I find reasons to quote it in real life. If you've read the manga, the anime adaptation is quite thorough.

A lot funnier than I expected. My boyfriend got me into this show and I'm bummed there's only one season! I never really watched Dragonball Z or any anime/manga growing up, but could still appreciate the satire/humor in this. Totally not what I expected from an anime series but I loved it! Would definitely recommend if you're looking for something a little offbeat.

One-punch man is an anime that just about anyone who enjoys anime should watch. One punch man has really good animation quality, great characters, humorous scenes, and amazing fight scenes. One-punch man offers some cool characters such as Genos and Dr. Bofoi and others which are quite comical such as Speed-o'-Sound Sonic and Puri-Puri Prisoner. Genos and Dr. Bofoi are portrayed as people who try quite hard to achieve in their goals, and enjoy battling. Once Genos and Dr. Bofoi appear, you can easily assume that an epic fight is about to occur. On the other hand there are characters such as Speed-o'-Sound Sonic and Puri-Puri Prisoner where you can almost guarantee that your going to come out with a laugh once they appear. Aside from that, one-punch man also enjoys throwing dry humor out almost every episode or so that makes it quite humorous in a lame way. The dry humor normally revolves around Saitama and his powers. Aside from humor, one-punch man also does a amazing job with its fight scenes, particularly the final one with Boros and Saitama. Anyhow, with all of this its hard not to enjoy, as it is very entertaining to watch with its mixture of cool fight scenes and humor.@BookYourBooks of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

One Punch Man is a 2015 japanese anime television show based off of an ongoing webcomic of the same name. An english dub was released in 2016. A second season is soon to be released in April of 2019. One Punch Man follows Saitama, a superhero who has grown bored, because none of his fights last past his first punch. What makes the series so compelling is how its premise turns the superhero trope on its head. Instead of trying to become the best in the world, Saitama struggles to find a worthy opponent in battle. Despite his ultimate power, the fights Saitama partakes in are very entertaining. The monsters are interesting, and the excellent animation creates vibrant and creative action sequences. This, in combination with the excellent comedic timing throughout the fights leads to a series rife with entertainment value. This series made me laugh more than most traditional comedies—whether it is the ridiculousness of the monster and their personalities, Saitama’s ever lighthearted outlook on every situation, or the clever jokes woven naturally into conversation. The only criticism I have for this show, is that there is only one season!

One Punch Man is one of the most popular animes of 2015. The story follows Saitama, a very very powerful superhero who defeats enemy monsters with only one punch. I love how Saitama is always bored and irritated because of how powerful he is. He wants to fight against more powerful monsters that do not get defeated with only one punch. This anime is very comedic and full of action which is my favourite genre of animes. The animation is very solid and is a masterpiece especially in the action scenes. The characters are very cool and badass, some characters are hilariously funny and entertaining to watch. But, I still think some characters need more interaction to be more comedic and entertaining. Some characters also need way more development in my opinion. The story itself is very entertaining and interesting to follow. I also really like the main character who's a little bit different than other main characters in animes. I think the main character is interesting as well as some of the supporting characters. That's why I highly recommend checking out this anime even for non anime fans. Only if you're a fan of comedy and action, though. Rating: 8/10

Great watch. Definitely one for the "different" kind of becoming a hero.

If you reading the graphic novel, note that this may not be more than you expected. I've prefer the book version, but the anime is good too. I agree with all recent comments about it, if you are into super heroes, lazy-characters, no care about the situation, weird out situation, this is one to check out. Very similar dynamics setting, to GinTama. (GinTama is a different graphic novel.)

Plainly put, this is one series anyone who is an anime fan should watch.
Based off the webcomic by ONE, One Punch Man is pure hilarity with tons of amazing animated action scenes. Most of the time the anime is comedic and action packed, but there are moments where the plot turns more series and very deep in its take on a hero's "duty" and "sacrifice". The characters are unique in design and concept & to top it all off it comes with an amazing soundtrack. This one is a must watch!

Hilarious! Simply put, this is a spoof on the “superhero” Japanese genre. There’s no deep meaning here, just silliness, deadpan comedy and over the top action. As per usual, there are character expositions and mundane slice of daily life tripe to endure. However, there is enough humor and action scenes interspersed to break those moments, mostly. Not for everyone, but if you like it, you won’t be able to get enough of it. Sit back, relax and enjoy!
