I like how some people take this so seriously. It's a superhero parody. This is supposed to be something to laugh and enjoy.

This fucking show, I swear. Only in this show would a superhero be motivated by bargain day at the supermarket. It's completely ridiculous but so good at the same time.

LMAO when Saitama is explaining how he got strong.
Brb doing the One Punch Man Routine.


Genos fights are jaw dropping.

Hope Saitama gets to the bargain at the supermarket in time.

Episode 2 is my fav till now the Genos backstory was comedic genius, but I thought this wasn't that far off tbh. The Routine part is absolute gold, had me laughing throughout.

Can't help but laugh at how useless the villains will be to the fact that Saitama worries his bargain sales than his enemies, and also the action scene on Genos: "Machinegun Blows" so much eyegasm I guess. So Sonic will appear on the next episode I guess.

I loved the little conversation with the Armored Gorilla at the beginning.

"My Master has become very curious about your body"

"I'm not interested in dudes"

"I think you misunderstood master"

LMAO the dialogue is great in this series

unfortunately no since the season will end LONG before they get that far. The explanation doesn't happen until 2/3 of the way through the hero hunter arc (even the manga hasn't gotten that far yet), and at best the anime season will end RIGHT before the hero hunter arc starts.

Huge spoilers for those that haven't caught up to the webcomic.

So far so excellent.

It's normal for the first 2-3 episodes of almost any anime to be solid, so the real trial will be over the next couple of fortnights.
Now you're wondering if there's white text in any of my other posts.

Over there, I'm everywhere. I know that.

This was absolutely brilliant. Poor Genos got owned again.

Saitama's training method was hilarious.

Poor guy missed the bargain sale!

stall waiting to see what makes one punch man good...So far it's just some epic battles, then Saitama comes and ruins it with 1punch non-sense.. has mediocre comedy..

I do hope later on he will get an actual enemy...who can survive his punches.. or at least where Saitama will have problems defeating his enemy.. or some close calls.. anything that makes battles into battles..

Has great animation.. high budget.. but so far all i see is saitama ruining battles & some mediocre comedy..

Seriously.. even some generic anime have better jokes than this .. so far at least. I mean so far it's like.

"Okay.. guy will 1 punch anything anyways, so no hype for him fighting as outcome is known.. and since he so "OP" he doesn't even have to think of enemies.. and can think of his casual life..

So while he was being tossed around and thinking about sale..it was probably the episodes worst moment.. I literally was like "seriously.. stop wasting time on some retardation and horrible joke and just end the fight so I can maybe see some close-call & dangerous side character fights"

It isn't bad anime.. it has some interesting moments.. but definitely not amazing either.. at least 3 episodes give me still 6/10 anime impression.

In a nutshell... I really hope Saitama will get actually enjoyable enemy that isn't just air..

Best episode so far with the best joke. "Hope the traps from level 1 to 8 can stop them". GENOS PROCEEDS TO DESTROY THE WHOLE BUILDING.

This what I'm talking about. One Punch man is unpredictable. It's so good. We need more anime like this.

It's the same concept as when you eat a lot of pig, you turn into a pig yourself. And this show is more of a laidback fun so just sit back and relax. Stop questioning every little detail.

To answer your question,
I'm pretty sure it's not explicitly stated but I'd make an educated guess, that City Z is a city where genetic engineering is allowed and/or mutants have begun to appear and the main character might be a mutant without knowing it. He claims to have trained a lot to get that strong but most likely he simply awakened his powers. Eating crab and turning into a crab from the first episode is probably just a joke the bad guy used, or he experimented on himself. I know it's a little unconventional to have such information not really stated but I feel there are lots of little hints that support my theory for those in agreement.

There's plenty of others jokes.
The direct destruction of the bad guy's lair was hilarious.
Or the flashback being interrupted.
Or the "'Im not into dudes"
If you don't like these jokes maybe this anime isn't for you.

Ok, I get it, the scientist that aims for evolution through artificial enhancement dedicated every moment of his entire life on his studies, but then he's defeated by the protagonist, who claims that hard work is what made him this strong, but in reality, he did nothing special and he's just backed up by the plot itself. So clever, so meta, but... this episode is still reeeeally fucking booooring.

"My boss has become curious about your body"
"I'm not interested in dudes".

The pinnacle of anime comedy.

If you think that's bad comedy , you need to see shonen "rom-com" , it's in quotes because it's absolute garbage , where it's just dumb perverted situations and the MC can't open his mouth to say anything. I'd take a this joke over "misunderstandings" in typical anime. At least they don't spend several minutes trying to fix something that is neither funny or plot relevant.

Another thrilling episode. I guess I wasn't the only one to have wanted to see all 8 traps in action, but Genos decided to one-shot the building with ease. Even Saitama was disappointed at that. XD

Kabuto is fearsome, especially in his rampage mode that makes him look like EVA-01 from Evangelion. Sadly for him, he chose to go on a rampage on the wrong day, as the panicking Saitama REKTS him easily.

I find the jokes to be very funny overall, but I do understand if a few people do find some to fall flat at times. To each their own after all. =)

I also love this episode. The action scenes were very good, and the scene when Saitama reveals the origin of his strength and Genos became angry because he though that Saitama was lying was hilarious XD. And then he rekt Asura Kabuto because he forgot to go to the bargains. I love Saitama more each episode.

I also love how that scientist guy was so obsessed to capture Saitama and when Asura Kabuto was defeated, he shit in his pants and realizes that he was to one who need to change. Glad that he don't die, since I'm a big fan of Daisuke Namikawa voice (though he also voices another character in the series).

The series is funny, stylish and cool. Sasuga, Madhouse. My only worry is that Genos, though cool, seems to be the one that would receive all the beatings to the enemies before Saitama destroys them. I don't want him to become a Yancha. I hope be wrong.

Everyone have different tastes in comedy. Comedy is a genre so divided and subjective that there's always a wall between the side of those who laugh their ass off and the side of those who can't understand shit about what the others are laughing at, no matter the show. The second side on this one is really small, so that's already proof that OPM is really fucking good.
Now, that 1punch stuff, if Saitama wants to go for the kill, will never change, ever. If that gets in your nerves, you better drop the show. If you just don't like it very much but you still think it's passable keep watching and you will probably start to enjoy it sooner or later
