A simple yet overlooked idea this show and its premise is truly fantastic. Focusing on the most powerful hero in the world who's rising up the ranks of the superhero world whilst trying to retain his personality there's so much fun to be had. Great action sequences and the perfect blend of comedy/drama/action all on beat to a fantastic score this show is truly brilliant. Refreshing the genre and ironically strong in every way there's many appealing factors to this show. Covering a lot of content in brisk episode times this quick series is superb, watch it!
I have been hearing of One Punch Man on social media for quite some time, there has been a lot of hype surrounding it, finally got to see the anime at last, got to say initially I was confused, was it a parody on other anime's or an genuine original take, either way I was disappointed. I felt it is mediocre at best, the story-line was lacking emotions and the gags were few and far in between. Yes the concept is cool, a superhero who is so powerful he defeats bad guys with a single punch, he is bored with all the easy fights and so was I. Also, the way the story kills cities and thousands of lives without any remorse from even the Heroes just didn't add up for me, I just couldn't get attached to these characters. The animation itself is good, just I didn't enjoy the storytelling.
What's the main charm of this anime is that it doesn't take it's hero seriously. Actually, he's an average guy who turned himself into a seriously strong super hero, though no one recognise him as such. He's in fact kind of an idiot, in a good way, and his easy going way of life kind of makes him likable and, most importantly, funny. He acts not as a super hero, but just like a real person. Now the story is okay, with many action scenes, just enough blood scenes and with interesting plot. The bad guys are not many as to confuse, but they are enough. However, somehow towards the end it kind of gets tiring. But, overall, a very funny anime packed with action.
The overall show is good to watch. The fights are in some cases is good where a hero and a villain posses equal powers. But the one punch man character is too powerful that no one can compete him which makes a fight less interesting. You will not that he is going to kill a monster with a single punch. Personally, I like the fight where both the opponents have equal power better even a villain contains more than it will be a challenge to a hero for unlock his more power but in this anime case. How big or powerful a villain is he can't bear Saitama's one punch.
