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.

A delightfully witty satire of the shounen genre as a whole. Also, Saitama is bald for the same reason I am. I like that.


It’s delightful and funny as hell. The biggest surprise is how engaging the characters manage to be despite the running gag. A masterpiece.


If you like fun, you should watch it.


What gets the man who has everything to get up in the morning? Even if Saitama isn’t having fun, this show will make sure you do.


Madhouse is a good studio, but I rarely feel the passion from them for a project like I did here. Expect some good laughs and sakuga.


The painful realization of life that is too easy when you can beat everything without trying. The search begins for some fun and effort!


Takes the superhero genre and flips it around, making a parody of it’s roots and offers a fun, greatly animated show, with good characters

    I am a member of the Zoldyck family, who are a family of legendary DMCAers. Since birth, I trained endlessly in the art of encoding. I eventually ran away from my family and profession out of boredom and joined the Anime Kaizoku website to pass the time.


    Anime was a mistake


    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
