This is just a honest review from a regular anime watcher so if your looking a detailed one its not the right place. To begin with if you're looking for action, like in the main story, it's not the right place to search. I agree That these special series are worth watching and are funny, but its definitely lacks the entertainment which the main story was packed with.

Would I recommend to watch it ? Definitely.
Will you have fun while watching it ? It depends on your expectations, but I'll say that it's worth spending your time.

So all in all 7/10.

OPM specials don't fall short on comedy compared to the main series. I dare to say the specials have even better comedy and humour than OPM itself.

In the specials we follow the people around Saitama. Genos, Sonic, Bang (later on the whole S class). As 6/6 episodes have aired, we have gotten some quality comedy with especially Genos. I loved episode 3's parody on Ginga Densetsu Weed (the huntsman and Akakabuto, the one-eyed king of the mountains).

As the specials main focus is more on comedy we only get to see the people around Saitama in all kinds of conflicts less than fighting monsters. ...

Mixed Feelings
The OPM specials are worth watching, don't let my low score fool you. I don't know if it's just a product of the sometimes awkwardly translated subs these are coming out with, but I found the humour overall in these to be a bit drab.

OPM specials feel like an episodic slice-of-life comedy. Let me clarify by saying that's about as far from my genre of choice as it gets, but I also feel it's far from the appeal of what OPM's mainline series was too.

While the art stays true to the original series, there's rarely a chance for Madhouse to really shiny when ...
