Forget previous two boring episodes, finally some plot!

Heroes' organization seems like nice concept. But they didn't have to go all lengths to explain that C for audience it was way too obvious (well, maybe not for Japanese but still).

But I have to say their fight was just epic! Brilliant animation there.

Still, this show really has some weird choice of antagonists, that Snake guy was just horrible and really miserable. At least the second one felt kinda competent.

Also, jokes with bubblegums are so last-century. Someone (Sunrise perhaps) should tell Madhouse how to use tropes more effectively.

Saitama destroying the comp.

Of course Saitama is ranked C. Being overlooked again.


Best practice fight ever.

Dude. There are so many awesome gifs in the comments here. HAHHAA.
Episode 5 = Vol. 3. Ch. 16-18Beg.

VOLUME 3 :: AWWW. THEY'RE GOING TO SCHOOL NOW. Well, they took the Super Hero test and both Genos and Saitama passed. OF course. HAHAHA. Saitama was never the type to really pay attention, was he? Makes one wonder why he even thought about taking a job as a salaryman in the first place. Or maybe he used to be pretty good/average at education and then after he started to train he just became nonchalant.
Genos is in Class S so he's more Super Hero than the teacher is, right? Seeing as how the teacher is merely Class A. Rank 38, too. What's with this teacher and his weird snake outfits? BAHAHAHA. THAT ATTACK, THO. That background is hella beautiful. Snek. HAHAHA.

Yeah. I'm totally thinking that since they came up with the Hero organization after his grandchild was saved by some dude, I'm thinking that it was Saitama who was the guy. Only confirmed it when I saw the butt-chin guy. HAHAHA
That finishing move. Genos also looks pretty good with his hair all aired up, too.
OOOHHH. SOME SPARRING. SO COOL. ALL OF IT. Genos animated is so dope. My goodness. It's like watching some sort of 'Dragon Ball Z' thing here. HAHA. Got me so hyped.

In the anime, there's this cutie with the blue hair. Who is he? I don't remember reading about him in the manga but it also doesn't really show the scene where Saitama and Genos go out to eat at the udon shop. Then they get to meet the blue haired cutie, again. OOOHH. He's Class A, rank 1. Amai Mask. Hmmm... I wonder if we'll get to read about him in the manga aytime soon. GOING WITH ANOTHER ROUTE, GUYS. This is where the manga and the anime are differing!!``

If Saitama can do so much damage without even trying, I can only imagine what he would do at maximum power.

I see I'm not the only one that the punching machine made think of that DBZ episode.
I always have an appreciation for good animation that doesn't resort to CGI.

Saitama and Genos had great chemistry in this episode, even when their relationship wasn't played for laughs. Pretty boy with blue hair reminds me of Mikisugi, I wonder what he really wants with Genos.

That sweatshirt is perfect for a gag gift. You don't get it right away.

How'd your interview go? What interview?
Careful, he's probably another rookie crusher. Rookie crusher?

Genos' fight with Saitama was the most gorgeous looking one in the series so far ♡ Those slow motion moments when he attempts an explosive kick with Saitama dodging it and the Certain Death Air Pressure punch was too awesome for words.

Saitama was the one who created the Hero Association and he got C ranked lol
At least they're aware of his immense power now.

This might have been the best episode yet - the banality of bureaucracy returns. I liked seeing Saitama surpass everything they threw at him, but I think it's interesting that there was a written test that he totally failed. I wonder what's in store for Genos with the hero association too. Also, the end was amazing, going from a sad goodbye to Genos moving in.

I think that Saitama would be better as a side character rather than MC...

The fight was amazing!

Nice DBZ reference when he smashed that punching machine lol.

Saitama is ripped, he should have got S class hero

Well Genos vs Saitama was a interesting fight to see. I think one day Genos can actually beat Saitama if he trains hard.

This episode was pretty good. I really liked the application part, and it's interesting that Saitama only got a C.

He not only aced and broke the physicals tests, but probably set the next standards for it so damn high that if the Association would re-calibrate future tests to match his level, none or minuscule amounts of potential heroes would pass.

That was a good practice match with Genos.

Been wondering what's the deal with Class A, Rank 1 is anyway?
You see there's no need to wonder where your god is,
Coz he's right here! ...and he's fresh out of mercy.

Nice episode. All the things in test for Saitama is broken. And they have punch machine. They are lucky to see the broken parts of the machine.

Looks like things are getting serious. But the new look was awesome. Genos is cooler now. That new body is just amazing. However his getting the S class is quite predictable. But I knew Saitama will not be able to do good in the written test XD. Surely if he could do that then he should have in a job by then.

Good episode!! Also christ, a lot of people try to enter the hero registry. I think saitama being c class is complete bullshit, but it makes sense because he did badly on the written exam and it will be interesting seeing him potentially go up in rank. Also Saitama had a point when he said that why can't genos just give the data on his specs instead of taking fitness tests.

Also!!! Got super excited hearing Mamoru Miyano! I love his work so it's always awesome to hear him unexpectedly in animes. His voice suits Sweet Mask very well, although Sweet Mask himself is a little sketchy

Saitama and Genos fight was really cool as well!

I must say so far this was the best episode!!!!!

I knew for a fact that both Saitama and Genos were Awesome but Man seeing them in action was something else

Madhouse there did a fantastic job with the fight scene animations....I frikin loved it :D

Anyways Genos is S class and my man Saitama is C class
But he did dominate the Fitness test setting all kinds of records :)

Lol I even liked that shirt he was wearing "OPPAI" xD

Edit : Some of the Best moments :D

I just love how the anime portraits Saitama and Genos, Saitama looks like a goofy idiot but he's actually a mass destruction killing machine and Genos looks like a emotionless killing machine but he's actually a "cinnamon roll too good for this world, too pure"
