Epic battle between Saitama and Boros prolonged a lot than expected. Loved the way that they've used an opening song in between clashes. Soundtracks synchronized very well with action too.

As for animation/art, magnificent!, it seems like they've been saving budgets for this final episode. Loved the way it ended.

Grade - B (8.6/10)

This was awesome! XD

Tatsumaki going to her WC form is still funny, and Genos, still got damaged because of Senritsu.

Garou arc and the sis arc if there will be a 2nd season.

I would consider giving this show a 6 out of 10 if they release a Genos yaoi OVA in the next 6 months.

duuude, the ost playing during this scene had me in tears. It wasn't so sad in the manga, but this was really heartwarming here.

Pretty disappointing fight. Show had the potential to have some substance, it chose not to. And went from mediocrity to being subpar. I did like Genos (for his voice actor if nothing else) nothing else is redeeming about the show. Grew to dislike Saitama by each passing episode. Awful humor, un-creative choreography, underwhelming experience in general. Show basically became a parody of itself after the early episodes, hypocritical in essence.

A shame that talented key animators and a good director were wasted on such bad writing.

4/10. I will pass, if a second season happens.


This might.....nah it didn't make any sense.

What do you mean?

Excellent, EXCELLENT final episode. I really enjoyed seeing Saitama's expressions during the fight, like this one:

"Are you done? With this?"

Made the fight have a sad tone to it even in the middle of it. Lovely. Boros was great too obviously.

Boros: "Saitama..."

*insert title card "The Strongest Hero"*

Nice one.

Well I'm giving the anime as a whole a 9/10 at least. It never really shook me to the core, so it can't go higher (this episode and ep9 was damn nice though). But I've enjoyed it a whole lot and have always looked forward to it each week.

You people are crazy if you consider that scene is better in the anime, take a good look at the manga page.. you can tell saitama pain just by looking at Boros on the ground and the way Murata draw the scene pretty much show what saitama really feel.. that picture says a lot without having any dialogue

and then you got the anime with cheesy OST and lazy background work with pitch black and a small amount of white shade ?

Madhouse did it's best with a top team of artists and average budget

It is still a beautiful anime nonetheless of couse Murata's art is completely on another level, the anime would never be able to replicate it

Literally all the arguments I've heard for why this show isn't good is "It's not good because it doesn't have 'x'"

As if things should all adhere to the same standards or else they're not good.

Death Note didn't adhere to the standards. It was brilliant.
Attack on Titan didn't adhere to the standards. It was brilliant.
One Punch Man didn't adhere to the standards. It was brilliant.

Naruto adheres to the standards. It's fun to watch but predictable.
Bleach adheres to the standards. It's fun to watch but predictable.
Probably all your other favorite mainstream shit too. Fun to watch and predictable.

You know what's going to happen in the next episode of whatever long running mainstream anime you're watching? Spoilers. The current villain shows just how much of an OP badass he is. There is literally no hope, but WAIT! It turns out that if the hero trains a little bit, he'll gain the power to win! But can he train fast enough? Will he get there before the entire world is doomed? Yeah. He will. Maybe someone will die though.

I got what I wanted from the episode. I was very entertained. I'm also pleased with how they did the moon jump scene. I was worried they'd go the Gurren Lagann route and have sound in space but thankfully it was done well. The final scene was a great way to end off the series by mirroring the first few minutes of episode 1. Also, Tatsumaki is bae.

All in all, I give this anime a 7.5-8 out of 10. Very enjoyable action and comedy, and the soundtrack was pleasure. I still very much prefer the manga however. There's just no beating the charm of the incredibly detailed drawings that somewhat resemble animated storyboards. There were also noticeable episodes in which Madhouse skimped on the animation to focus on the "important" parts. Completely understandable given this anime was created on an average budget, but it's still jarringly noticeable. In conclusion One Punch Man was very fun blockbuster ride that I looked forward to weekly. Also, Tatsumaki is bae.

This show was never intended to be serious. Why are people acting like it has to be some regular story-driven, plot twist infested show? It was meant to be a fun, exaggerated parody-styled show and I strongly believe they hit those goals pretty cleanly. 8.7/10

Nice episode. Loved the use of the OST and the action was great. Not an entirely fulfilling finale, which I hope adds the possibility of a second season. Overall, it was pretty enjoyable, although the story felt a bit lacking sometimes. 7/10

Great anime. people forget that manga is just one frame and anime is so many frames. So its incredibly difficult to do very detailed artwork but MADhouse did their level best. Great anime. I was a skeptic till ep 6 but after that it hooked me. And I am not those hipsters who stick to "bad anime" inspite of watching and enjoying it. Sure the joke got a bit old and some scenes are just nonsense(like other heroes didnt notice this battle) but this anime delivered great fights and introduced some great lessons very subtly. 8/10, very good. (Maybe 7/10 if I become a bit harsh)

Best anime of the year right here! Boros fight delivered, which is no surprise considering the whole adaptation has been fantastic (excluding the meteor episode which was a slight disappointment). 9/10
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...

At first I didn't know if I wanted to give this show a 6 or a 7

But then, I realized that I really want to see it in the top 10 and surpass SnK, SAO, TG and other shitty series in terms of popularity

So I'm gonna have to go with a 7/10

Awesome fight and it met my expectation. I badly want the soundtrack during boros last speech.

Good job Madhouse, but still the manga is more superior for me as it is more funny. I think the seiyuu did a good job and for the humor part, back before OPM is being animated, I knew that it'd be awkward to animate the joke and I'm afraid if Madhouse can do it, and in the end, they can't make it but I won't blame them.

Nevermind, I hope there'll be season 2

That fight was really epic. It was pleasing to watch. The whole episode was crazy. R.I.P Boros. One punch man was definitely anime of the season NO DOUBT! Don't know how people are rating this 4/10. This anime is easily a 8/10. This show will be missed. Im rewatching this episode later tonight it was just that sick.

Amazing. The fight with Boros really lived up to the hype I got when I read it in the manga.

I really don't care what anyone says, so many people shit on this anime saying it's repetitive and overrated, or boring, or whatever, but for me, it definitely earned the hype it initially generated, and nothing will change my opinion of that. I know Madhouse is infamous for not making many sequels, but I really hope this gets one. 8.5/10, AOTS for me. I loved this anime so fucking much.
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.

It's just not your thing then, but I assure you all the efforts put into it were not wasted based on the popular opinion of those of us who actually enjoyed the show.

Best finale of the year, best fight of the past 15 y are of anime (IMO) and best animation of the Decade IMO as well.

10/10 can barely wait for Season 2 when it comes eventually.
