THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
It's nice to see License-less Rider this episode but damn, I felt bad for him lol

Great to see Sonic in action! I knew his speed is fast but the way the episode really expressed his abilities. Very impressive! Gotta love his grin as well:


Lovely choreography this episode. Loved seeing Saitama in action as well and his usual reactions~

Sonikku!! ♥‿♥





Another terrific episode and a great adaptation. Apart from the action scenes I'm quite curious about what Genos and the doctor were talking about. Gonna rewatch once the subs are out. Also it feels great to know that Hammerhead is voiced by the same guy who did Knuckle in HxH 2011, I really love his macho voice, and was terrific with Hammerhead too. It's time for Saitama to register his name in Hero Association now!

5/5, not in the least disappointing and very enjoyable.

The trolling of my boy Sonic was just as great as it was in the manga xD

And poor Licenseless Rider lol (That name always makes me laugh)

The first episode that I've been disappointed with.
Everything was so underwhelming. Even the animation was average, especially with the scene between Saitama and Sonic. It was still good, but I guess I've been spoiled by the previous episodes.
I hope this isn't a sign of things to come, and I definitely hope that Madhouse in't blow their load on the first three episodes already.
Then again, the stream was super slow, so maybe I missed some scenes. I'll rewatch it when subs are out.
However, the adaptation itself was good as always. They didn't skip anything from what I remember.

So funny. This episode redeemed the series for me.

Rider was pretty awesome. Interested to see how the series will play out.

So was the golden turd destroyed? :D I thought that Sonic guy was totally a girl in the OP. Nice accidental nut shot by Saitama. :D So Saitama's lackin' that hero name recognition eh? Lookin' forward to seein' how he fixes that. :D

Awesome episode again.
License-less rider was funny and Hammer head's goals are hilarious.
Sonic was cool.
Saitama's faces always make me laugh.

My bros Licenseless Rider and Sonic are here!!!!
Really love the smiling bits of Sonic... and of course that technical difficulty after he got punched in the balls. Hahaha.

I was looking forward to the round circle, seems they skipped it.

Now the hero test!!!

Amazing episode yet again! They really captured Sonic's character really well and the animation during the fights was top notch. Comedy was also on point and made me laugh a lot during the episode and that licenseless rider theme song was so ridiculously awesome haha. I can't wait till they release the OST.

The animation could have been better during the Sonic fight. Ironically the animation in the manga was actually better.

Brilliant as always. Glad to finally see Sonic and license-less rider make an appearance. Can't wait for THAT arc!

Sonic is too beastly loping of all those heads. They made his bulge really apparent. No mistaking him for a chick in the anime lol

Finally the plot kicks in! Can't wait for the hero exam!

The all-powerful, unbeatable, Licenseless Rider finally makes his debut. Felt bad for him though haha.

But I felt more bad for Sonic as he pretty much lost all chances of ever having kids after taking a Saitama punch to the nuts lol. Another funny and action-packed episode (although it wasn't as good as the previous episodes imo), and Saitama and Genos will register as heroes next week.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Hearing Sonic's outcry in that scene would've been great, seeing the after bits was good too.

Bless the thick head, Hammerhead, bless the thick head xD It is so true how people would aim for the head. Glad to see him straighten out at the end.

Like how the one punch thing isn't only used on villains.

Damn I don't think Sonic can still reproduce after this. RIP

Because 4 episodes is always a determinant of an entire series. That's why Steins;Gate isn't very serious. /s

This post is perfect....I laughed more at these two scenes than I probably should have.

I don't really have much else to say other than I enjoyed the usual action moments. I'm looking forward to the Heroes Association arcs and those interactions between Saitama and his higher-ranked colleagues.

Lol Saitama gonna fight the Paradisers cause they stole his look.
Awesome to see Sonic in action. Taking down all those guys was cool.
Lol no one has heard of Saitama.

Alright episode. Sonic was a good antagonist (although Saitama rekt him without any effort... considering his fight against Asura Kabuto). The License-less Rider was hilarious, too bad that he ends in the hospital. I'm somewhat glad that Hammerhead don't die, he was hilarious.

Seems like Saitama would become a registered superhero in the next episode, things looks very good.
