Synopsis

In this new action-comedy, everything about a young man named Saitama screams "AVERAGE," from his lifeless expression, to his bald head, to his unimpressive physique. However, this average-looking fellow doesn't have your average problem... He's actually a superhero that's looking for tough opponents! The problem is, every time he finds a promising candidate he beats the snot out of them in one punch. Can Saitama finally find an evil villain strong enough to challenge him? Follow Saitama through his hilarious romps as he searches for new bad guys to challenge!

Onepunchman, the story of the great hero Saitama, an unemployed guy who found his career in being a superhero, after training for three years he achieved great power, sadly for him, he manages to destroy any enemy in just one punch, rending him bored and empty.

Story: Simple and direct action manga, overpowered Hero fights enemies, but he's attitude while doing it compliments so much the comedy.

Art: Murata Yusuke, amazing artist who worked in a lot of big names before, he's clear trace makes every page enjoyable, great detail in the images and clarity for understanding what exactly is happening in each page.

Unlikely heroes? Check. Overpowered main character? Check. Buildup to seemingly epic battles which eventually only last one punch? Check.
Onepunch-Man is a superhero themed manga that follows the life of an average hero who manages to win all of his battles with only one punch. Where as Ratman follows the life of Shuto who wants to be a superhero but cant because of his physical appearance. It doesn't sound similar, apart from both being superhero manga's but when you read it you can tell both manga's try to describe how a real hero should act by blending serious moments with comedy among action.
