It was probably more like "swimming" in the air. He "pushed back" the air and propelled himself like that.

The animators took some liberties but it's still due to his speed, he's propelling himself forward.

Lol that Oppai sweater was glorious....I need one.

Solid comedy and the action was well animated along with stellar art.

Really I can see why this was hyped up.

Madhouse is just being unfair to all other animation studios now. That Saitama vs. Genos fight scene had the best animation i have ever seen.

Saitama's face, no matter if it's the "normal face" or the "serious series face" doesn't seem to fit his body at all.

That was an awesome fight.

I like that their adding more to the anime, like they're fleshing out the details in between the chapters of the manga (plus we get to see more of characters that don't show up as much in the manga)

Another awesome episode! Poor Saitama got a C rank while Genos got S rank lol. That battle scene was awesome like my eyes were just glued to the screen wanting more. Cant wait to see what the next episode has in store for us with the association and Amai Mask having some sort of plans for Genos.

Here is my full review on the episode:

Another great episode. Saitama breaking all those records.
Loving the Oppai shirt.
That sparring match between Genos and Saitama was spectacular.
Genos going all out. Saitama is on a whole new level.
Genos winning that Udon challenge.
Sweet Mask makes his appearance.
Looks like Genos is moving in with Saitama.

So good, no other way to describe the episode really and especially that spar between Saitama and Genos . This is turning out to be such a perfect adaptation, even to the point where it could be argued it's improving on the source material. They've even addressed some of the nitpicks I had with the manga, specifically Genos being promoted to S class without showing Sweet Mask being consulted. And speaking o Sweet Mask, Mamoru is such a perfect match for him.
5/5

Btw, is next episode
5 main aspects I base my ratings on:
1. Did DramaEnthusiast make a thread about it?
2. Is it better than Breaking Bad?
3. Did MellowJello recommend the shit out of it?
4. Has it caused a (very entertaining) shitstorm on MAL?
5. Is it actually good?

Scratch the fifth point, it's not very relevant...

I like how both of them don't care so much about the whole hero thing like the others. And that oppai hoodie is 10/10.


Anyone noticed how the guy who created the Hero Association bec of his grandchild who got saved by a passerby has the same weird chin like that kid Saitama saved on Episode 1? Three years ago back when he had hair.



Omg didn't notice that! Perfect.

LOL the ending was the best. "Can I live here?" "Absolutely not" "I have rent money" "Did you bring a toothbrush" xD I would've been the same.

But I call BS on rank C. Just for doing bad on an ESSAY? He went above and beyond every physical test. He's not 10/10 for physical he's 100/10 if not more. Plus Genos got rank S mainly because he destroyed that laboratory. Hence proving having insane physical skills is enough.

I haven't decided who I have a bigger crush one. Genos or topless Saitama.

So much awesomeness should not be possible to be be expressed within a single episode, and yet it's right there.
C ranked because of mediocre writing skills 〈(゜。゜)

The bout between Genos and Saitama was so good!

That was... damn. Also, it must suck to be Genos to be so amazing and badass and everything and yet still be nothing to Saitama. That's really gotta hurt.

uh speed? plus his momentum alone will push him forward.
And those were his afterimages like genos said, he's way too fast.

No I mean he was flying left and right during the scene in the sky before he had any contact with Genos. Go watch it again.
No, you watch it again. He was not flying, he just jumped on some rocks in midair and propelled off of it to evade Genos' blasts.



Anyway, episode was good as always. The sakuga during the sparring match was amazing, and was definitely a step up from last week. Learning more about the Hero Association and how it works was nice as well.
I found it hilarious how Saitama was inadvertently responsible for the existence of the Hero Association when he saved that kid, yet no one acknowledges it.
There were some extra 'filler' scenes with Sweet Mask but I don't mind them at all. He seems a lot more menacing than in the manga. The conversation between him and Genos was interesting.

Also, During the entire time Genos was fighting Saitama's afterimages. Keep in mind that they were fighting at speeds faster than sound and Saitama was able to create afterimages against someone who can fight at supersonic speeds. OP as Fuck!

That sparring match was EPIC from start to finish. I really enjoyed this scene on the manga but I have to admit that I enjoyed it slightly more in the anime.
I also loved the interactions between Genos and Saitama!

Anyway, overall this episode was amazing. I think this is my favorite episode so far!

The humor was pretty flat again, but I appreciated the jab at education systems with Saitama getting a C rank despite likely being the best hero in the association. Also, it sounds like Genos is riding off Saitama's feats a bit since the association seemed to assume he destroyed the Evolution organization single-handedly.

It looks like we might start getting a bit of plot going forward, but the pacing seems awfully slow for this to be a one cour.

The spar scene was some of the best fighting animation I've seen. That carried the episode for me; the animators who did this are awesome.

this is the part in the manga where I got hooked, and knew I had to finish this series, same goes for the anime. this also heightens my need of an answer to how did saitama became so strong?

when serious, a punch could obliterate mountains from an air wave alone.

also, just got reminded, to those less gifted beings who reasons that if a MC is too overpowered, the story is not worth it. from saitama's response, "How you like me now?"

Just so everyone's aware the animation director for One Punch Man said that the budget is average, it's just that the animation team are seriously dedicated to this series.

Seriously, there is a lot of big league animators that Madhouse has pulled in working on this series.

Anyway, this episode was the very definition of the word EPIC!!

Obviously Saitama can control his strenght all the way down to normal person level... or he would disintegrate anything he touches.
