Story: I can say that this story so far is very basic. Where the anime is right now there isn't really too much going on that is very captivating. Which is unfortunate as the story does get a lot better the longer you read, and the more arcs go past. Especially the start of the anime, the story was very all over the place, with it being hard to get into at first.

Art: Overall the art isn't anything special. Luckily it isn't bad at all, but that doesn't mean it lacks moments where you know that with better animation the whole anime would be better. read more

Atrious pacing, 13 minutes runtime is way too short.
Also the comedy in the anime is not funny at all.Although they are cringe worthy. Many illogical things happen, such as characters pop out of nowhere , new new power ups gets introduced without explanation, plot armors, overall a disastrous anime.

Anime introduces someone,makes them out to be the bad guy but beats him in the next episode itself. Character development is poor. Characters change sides way too easily.

Everyone except main character ,do not matter. No one else is questioning the opness of main character, they just accept it.
Also the main antagonist in the end is read more

Honestly, 12 episodes for this series is too low. In both the manhua and the novel, this is basically just the introduction, setting up a lot of the characters and how they interact. If you're here for an actual complete story, I recommend you read the entire thing instead of watching this. There's just too little runtime in this adaptation to really get things going.

As for the animation, I can't praise it enough. Especially during the fighting scenes, this show really delivers and keeps you glued to the screen. The music and sound design really adds well to this.

The characters themselves are fairly stereotypical, but read more

For everyone who's wondering what this title is. Without spoilers: basically - it's One Punch Man, but ten times better. It actually has a story which may be pretty basic, but it's still worth watching. There's no dialogs about nothing for 3 episodes. No fillers. No fights, that last longer, than a week. And on top of that - main character actually have some brain cells. Maybe he's not a genius, but he's not a brain dead. The downside is - it's SHORT. Basically it's a movie cut into 13 minutes episodes. If you like One Punch Man - definitely try this. And if you read more
