After rigorously training for three years, the ordinary Saitama has gained immense strength which allows him to take out anyone and anything with just one punch. He decides to put his new skill to good use by becoming a hero. However, he quickly becomes bored with easily defeating monsters, and wants someone to give him a challenge to bring back the spark of being a hero.

Upon bearing witness to Saitama's amazing power, Genos, a cyborg, is determined to become Saitama's apprentice. During this time, Saitama realizes he is neither getting the recognition that he deserves nor known by the people due to him not being a part of the Hero Association. Wanting to boost his reputation, Saitama decides to have Genos register with him, in exchange for taking him in as a pupil. Together, the two begin working their way up toward becoming true heroes, hoping to find strong enemies and earn respect in the process.

Preliminary (228/? eps)
I gave this a 10/10 - It's a must read for fans of action, comedy, absurdity (?) and impressive art. In terms of action, I'm pretty sure this is the best one on the market. It's also a great material if you're looking learn storyboarding, because Yusuke Murata drew this as if he was storyboarding an anime, which is pretty rad.

Not a lot of people notice, but One Punch-Man is also an excellent superhero critique/satire. Kind of like The Boys, another superhero satire, the highest ranking heroes are similarly douchebags and self-serving, and cause a lot of destruction in their heroics. Unlike The Boys, One ...

Preliminary (154/? eps)
It is probably one of the best action conduited mangas out there as well as an intelligent satire about power fantasies and the art is top notch but a little generic despite that designs are really cool most of the time, however that are all the good things I can say about OPM. It is not bad by any means but in 150+ chapters the story becomes progessively less interesting. The misteries around the hero ranking are a good hook up but it gets old quite early. It is a fun watch but nothing else. Would recommend the first animated part as it is delightfully ...

Preliminary (160/? eps)
*Spoiler free* The webcomic is better. I don't mean to be some kind of contrarian, but it's the truth. The webcomic, written by ONE, has a story which readers of the manga would not know past a certain point. Whether it was Murata or ONE himself who pedaled these changes, they are bad.

Everything changed in the manga seems to strive to appeal to a younger, or just dumber audience. Any sort of nuance was taken out of the story and the characters fall flat with the omissions and additions in the story.

The artwork, which people love to praise, is good. Undeniably so. However, ...
