I kept nodding off during Genos' speech.

Awesome episode overall.

^You (Veldin461)got that right, dude. XD

@Clefairies I don't know what you're looking for in an anime that you'd want to see in OPM but as for what I can tell, the show is definitely getting better. I don't know where you are basing your standards but it better not be SAO. o.O


The concept of One Punch Man seems funny but boring at the same time since you're knowing he can defeat anybody with a single punch which makes it predictable, it lacked something that does not have me anticipating the next as much as I would have expected it to have done. (Even though I love humor and quirkiness)...... and No, I hate SAO.


OPM was and will never be about whether Saitama can beat an oponent or not. So basically like a lot of shows out there...only that the other shows pretend it's about this. And to be honest, while the One Punch gag may be the main theme it's rather a backround thing and not what the show/manga/web comic really is about.

OPM is always about what happens at the events and all the ridiculous character interactions.

All I can say is be patient. It's only 2 episodes in, so it's too early to judge.
There's a very good reason why the manga sells very well/webcomic has an extremely high number of hits, and Madhouse is currently doing an extremely fine job adapting it. If Madhouse keeps it at that rate, the true spark of why One-Punch Man is so popular will come.

And yes, it's pretty much what Miragee said. I believe that if this anime focuses only purely on Saitama and his one-punch antics, then it probably isn't going to last long. But I believe One-Punch Man has been so popular and is still going strong now not because of the antics, but because of the character development and plot that come later on. And that, in fact, is starting to become evident when Genos is introduced.

Great episode!

Shame We won't be hearing Sawashiro's voice :(

Genos is cool, but as usual Saitama will anyone on his way.

Poor Squirrel got owned pretty quickly.

Definitely much better than the 1st episode. Can't wait for the next one!!

Common.. are you serious MAD HOUSE.. using 2015 best Seiyuu as side voice character... I think Sawashiro voice should belong to Fubuki.

That's the point. In a "normal" superhero story there would be a whole arc about "defeating the evil mosquito girl", but since Saitama is such a cheat, he just obliterated her on the spot. At least she was given the next EP preview to handle.

Man, the ending song still sounds very similar to the second opening of Fate/Zero...

Specifically 0:33 from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NfUq-PYUaU versus 23:09 of the episode.

What I am saying is that they are pulling the "parody" aspect even into the VA selection.

7 pages in and you're only the second person aside from me who points this out?

anyway it should have been clear already from the first moments of the first episode.

Seems like everyone is liking the second episode more than the first one.
Not surprised since the manga was pretty boring in the first few chapters too
It only gets better btw

For those not feeling this series, I guess it cause your so impatient or you have no idea how the series progress. i bet if u just read the first 10-20 chapters of the manga you would be singing a different tune in no time flat but we don't want you go spoiling yourself so just be patient. The series is most definitely gonna get better without a doubt. This series is probably the most anticipated series of this season.

If you don't find this anime funny I just don't understand your sense of humor. This show is freaking hilarious, haven't laughed this much in a while. Action is good, story is good, freaking hilarious, if it keeps up this pace is a 9 for sure.

Another great episode!

You gotta imagine what it would be like if saitama didn't exist in that world, then some other hero would have this long epic shounen manga like quest (which would be as long as a shounen series) to defeat the house of evolution. Then comes along saitama who just say's "screw that, shorten it to 20 panels or less!" and rekts all of them

And this hero would be:


Licenseless Rider. Hero Class C-1.

I don't know how Madhouse is affording this, but I hope it works out for them.

I liked the mosquito character's design, voice (which I recognized), and ability. I think it makes for a small taste of the creative characters we may see going forward. (The electric dude from the first ep was comparable, but I've seen a similar design before.) It's amusing that Saitama struggles to swat a normal mosquito yet finishes her off easily.

There were a lot of other great comedy moments like the "found you" scene underground, but they've all been talked about plenty.

Genos seems pretty cool even though he talks a lot. He came complete with instant backstory, too.

If you aren't ruined by the ridiculous amount of hyping by the fans (which can spoil it imo), I think it's hard to not like this show.

Looking forward to the next ep.

so Madhouse became Shueisha's primary choice in making anime with top notch animation..huh..?
there isn't much other choices since it's almost the only studio that can make an anime with such quality without having to stop all their other projects and wait a year to finish it like ufotable..
But I think that ufotable rarely make non original anime..the same goes with KyoAni..

By the way, this show has completely taken me by surprise.

I totally understand the hype.

One Punch Man -at least so far - is awesome.

Finally i get why One Punch Man is so hyped. Great episode, lol moments all over and the story is becoming interesting. Am i the only one who thinks of Raiden from MGS (the cyborg version) when i see the cyborg guy?

Anyways, the art and the animation are awesome


lmao I thought about Raiden too, especially when one of his limbs get torn off.

I don't know what you expect from a parody. Would you rather nakama death power ups? That's one punch man, a parody. Instead of lengthy fights they just die, mixed in with some of the best comedy i've seen in anime.
This is it!, are you ready?
