The seemingly unimpressive Saitama has a rather unique hobby: being a hero. In order to pursue his childhood dream, Saitama relentlessly trained for three years, losing all of his hair in the process. Now, Saitama is so powerful, he can defeat any enemy with just one punch. However, having no one capable of matching his strength has led Saitama to an unexpected problem—he is no longer able to enjoy the thrill of battling and has become quite bored.

One day, Saitama catches the attention of 19-year-old cyborg Genos, who witnesses his power and wishes to become Saitama's disciple. 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. Saitama, who is shocked that no one knows who he is, quickly agrees. Meeting new allies and taking on new foes, Saitama embarks on a new journey as a member of the Hero Association to experience the excitement of battle he once felt.

Comedy and action perfect for someone new to anime.

Story 6/10
The series is a lot more comedy and action driven than story driven. The story is as bare-bones as can be but compensates with loads of action and comedy.

Art 9/10
The animation is often the same as any other series and only goes beyond in fight scenes, luckily there is quite a lot of fighting. What really caught my interest on the art side are the character designs. There are so many characters in different art styles. To list a few, Saitama is in the style of Mob Psycho, some characters look like they were ripped straight ...

Mixed Feelings
One Punch Man is a very interesting anime with a unique concept. It follows the life of a superhero who has become too powerful, leading him to feel bored because no one can challenge him. The fighting scenes in this anime are quite entertaining, especially because of Saitama's extraordinary power.

The story is simple but entertaining. It mainly focuses on action and fights, with little background on the characters. However, this does not diminish the fun of the anime, especially for those who enjoy action and fresh humor.

The character design in this anime is also commendable, especially in depicting various monsters and superheroes. The humor is ...

Normally I would do a review analyzing each thing, but I'm going to do an analysis at the same level as the anime, weak.

It's almost impossible to analyze history, especially because it doesn't exist. It's something so simple that it feels like you're watching SpongeBob.

It's an anime extremely made for a children's audience, anyone over the age of 12 and doesn't realize how boring the anime is, they have no critical sense whatsoever, besides the story being totally boring, there's no cool character to look at, no. There's a character that you look at and think "I love it when he appears".

The only two things ...
