For better or for worse, it's over.

Animators be praised, budget or otherwise.

what am I missing is that in the manga when he lands on the moon and looks back he things "now this is starting to look like a fight" just to show you the standards of saitama of what counts as an actual fight.

Holy shit! The finale was so good. Playing the OP during Saitama and Boros's fight just made it more epic.
SEASON 2 PLS!


Lol at Saitama.

I'm glad that Silverfang is alive. Saitama fought vs. Boros. Both were really strong, one punch was definetely not enough to defeat Boros. An intense fight, Saitama was even hit to moon. But in the end, Saitama easily won. So that was the end of (the first season of) One Punch Man, great series!

The final episode was pretty good. 4/5. Overall a decent series that I found to be highly overrated. Nonetheless, it has peak my interest enough to start reading the manga. Overall score. 6/10.

This series was indeed fun, but 9.06? I don't think so.
Maybe if Saitama blasted the green haired bitch at the end.

Good then that Saitma showing up and one punching the villain isn't predictable.

He didn't one punch him though you don't even know Saitama has over 300 confirmed kills.

The end result wasn't that different tho, just flashier. And since when is unpredictability an indicator of quality? By that logic shows like Guilty Crown swipe the floor with OPM.

The adaptation was pretty spot on, they just skipped the special/extra chapters

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.


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.

If it sells great in Japan sure, otherwise nope.

Entertaining finale and fun ride overall, this series! ^^ The arc of this first season has been great storytelling and all of the production elements were executed to near perfection IMO. There's plenty of seeds planted to keep me engaged for the next installment. Very well done!!

Didn't even try that hard, Saitama is unworldly.

Going into this anime, I had low expectations. Easily the best anime of the season. And certainly the best anime with an overpowered protagonist. One punch man separates itself from others by showing how comical it is to be massively overpowered.

The comedy hit on all the right notes. And the few times we had serious moments, they were incredible. From changing the weather to blowing apart the clouds for the entire world, the serious moments made us realize the gravity of Saitama's strength.

I'm going to miss this anime so much.

Guilty Crown was unpredictable?

Well, okay.

Anyways yes, a certain part of One Punch Man is that Saitama is always going to win. That's the actual premise of the show however. It's like saying "Naruto is a ninja", "Luffy is a pirate", or "Ichigo is a soul reaper". The very fact that they combined "always win" with his actual defining trait, defies what is normal. However I'm not saying it's done something new in this regard. JoJo constantly does this, with the characters basically as their trait, always win.

OPM though, condenses even more than that. Not only is Saitama always going to win, he's also already done all the necessary training to do it. Because of this, the author and the viewers don't need to pretend that Saitama is ever going to lose. This opens up a whole venue of storytelling methods that other series can't even begin to take advantage of.

The main hero is now a constant factor, and so all the viewer cares about are the variables. Genos, and everyone else, are incredibly minor characters. You're told to completely ignore their pasts and focus on their nows, and you genuinely do. We don't care that Sasuke's entire family died, but that Mumen Rider is completely powerless and is still fighting to save everyone, not for some grand reason, but because he wants to.

And Mumen Rider isn't even a primary character. He's even more minor than the minor characters, and we still give a damn about him. I suppose all the naysayers who are complaining about Saitama have been brainwashed by these long running animes, as they don't even care about secondary characters.

This episode was very exciting, and the overall show is fun and pleasing to watch; so I do hope there is a second season in the making.
I wish we wouldn't wait years for it, like we're doing with Attack on Titan... :/

What a epic final episode to close out for One Punch Man and the amount of budget that went into the animation was incredible. We got a lot of more great fighting between Saitama and Boros. I wouldn't say this was one of best anime out there but it was thrilling to see.

Rating: 7/10

I thought this would be different. Recalling the whole anime, the same thing has been happening all over every episode. Liked it a lot at first but now it feels just mediocre. The only interesting part of the show were the Class S heroes but now, even they feel banal. Amai Mask and Tornado are the most annoying. I did like the OST though. 7/10 for me.

I guess the ending was satisfying enough. I mean, we all knew what was going to happen so that kind of killed the excitement.

Overall, this was a good show, but by no means a "masterpiece" as the fans are trying to make it out to be. Comedy was hit or miss, with a lot more misses than hits, the world building didn't start until halfway through the show, most villains were insanely annoying rather than funny, and Saitama was a pretty bland and boring character.

For a show that's supposed to be a parody, it really does take itself too seriously.

Animation was the strongest point. It really blew me away. The soundtrack was well done as well.

I wouldn't mind seeing more in the future. I'll give it a 7/10. Enjoyable to watch, but still very very overrated.

I disagree tbqh, the side characters is an aspect where the show shines for me, this arc didn't even show the true extent of the S class heroes power as some of them even left, in part that's why I'm anxious for season 2 since their role there will be quite big

Looks amazing because it's Madhouse. Will never get a season 2 because it's Madhouse. Madhouse just doesn't like making money I guess.

Anyway 8/10 for me. OPM have a superb animation, art & BGM.
Saitama is not my favorite character but very rare to found a unique character like him now days. This is why OPM is something unique in Action anime.

Nice if we have S2, maybe it took 2 or 3 years again since the progress in manga is slow.

I don't feel like going into detail, but OPM was definitely one of the most fun and enjoyable anime I've watched. If I rated solely on enjoyment factor, I'd rate it with an 11/10. Unfortunately, as I've said before, the characters and story are still lackluster. Everything else is superb, but... those two factors are simply the most important in the way I rate anime.

- Story: pretty much non-existent
- Characters: excluding Saitama and Genos - meh.
- Soundtrack: superb
- Animation and art: outstanding
- Enjoyment: extremely high

The last episode was really well done, and ended it off in a friendly way. Hopefully a season 2 does happen.

Final episode: 5/5
Series overall: 8.5/10

It's still amazing seeing an anime cause such an uproar.

I'm hoping season 2 would be better and true, it was wrong of me not to mention Mumen Rider. He was epic.

What an awesome fight that was, and Saitama still wasn't at 100% either. Really glad they just went all out with this.

9/10. I don't have a major urge for a second season, but if one comes I sure as hell won't complain.

epic fight!!!!!

why none of the heroes realize there was a battle on the plane? the last attack that boros shot was really big. i think everybody could see that.

poor genos, got rekt by tatsumaki.
S2 when? i need more tatsumaki

Its like no one who is hating truly understood the show. It was never supposed to be super complex show with amazing writing. If you came into the show expecting those things its purely your fault...... for what the show was it did a great job, it entertained people weekly and gave us a fun watch.

Disliking a series is fine and so is having an opinion but try to at least have an intelligent opinion you, I assume, pre-teens.
