With its state-of-the-art animation, unorthodox hero, and gut-bustlingly funny jabs at the shounen genre, One-Punch Man is simply a knockout.

Audience Reviews for One Punch Man: Season 1

  • Dec 04, 2022
    I fell in love with this show, one of the few comedy anime shows that's actually funny ^^
  • Sep 20, 2022
    The animations and art look incredible, some of the best I've seen in an anime. They look next gen. This is already one of the funniest anime's I've ever seen. It's like it doesn't even have to try to be funny, it just is. I love how each villain character is super caricatured to have these exaggerated personalities, it really adds to the humor, especially with all the exaggerated facial expressions. My god, I love Saitama. The guy has zero ego or pride, he's just a humble dude searching for a challenge, just wanting to be recognized and accepted for what he does. He's such an interesting, inspiring and funny character. I love his little collection of manga in his apartment, I thought that was pretty cute and wholesome. His story is both tragic, funny and inspiring. The most overpowered human in the world, but has trouble feeling human emotions. I love how the whole time the exhilarating fight was just a dream, and then when he wakes up, the subterranean villains actually come to the surface but they're much meeker and less stronger than the ones in his dream. I love this whole dream vs. reality thing, it's kind of like expectation vs. reality. Something we tend to do in our day to day lives. And this can often lead to disappointment and let down when it doesn't exceed or even come close to our expectations. Unfortunately, this is just part of the human condition. Dude, I love the music that plays when Genos is fighting the mosquito lady. The synths mesh really well with Genos' cyborg synthetic look, complementing it beautifully. He's so badass, and powerful too. Genos also has a pretty tragic story, losing his family and being reengineered into a half cyborg half human. I like how with some of the characters that aren't even human, they tend to still have relatable human qualities to them. I love Saitama's story of how he got so strong. It's funny how the others didn't believe how he got his strength was from doing simple strength training. It was discipline, consistency and the willingness to push yourself that got him results. And they just couldn't fathom that lol. I like how Saitama said that human beings are strong because we have the ability to change ourselves. Nice little inspiring message there. The anime does a fantastic job at commentating on society and humanity. I loved the Hammerhead guy with his minions, the Paradisers. Unemployed young guys who refuse to work but want everything for free. They fight for free water, food and clothing for the poor and the unemployed because they themselves are poor and unemployed. A group of bumbling terrorists trying to seek the easy way out of life lol. You can't make this super ridiculous but relevant stuff up. I love the fight between Saitama and the fast ninja, Sonic, and how he mistakingly punched him in the balls lol. I love the neat little detail of how the person who created the Hero Association was none other than the grandfather of the kid with the chin balls whom Saitama saved a couple years back. Only those paying close attention would notice that the man in the brochure has the same chin balls as the kid, therefore making them related. Saitama saving the ball chin kid inspired the kid's grandfather to create the association. So basically Saitama helped inspire and create the whole Hero Association without him even knowing it. I love how Genos scored a perfect 100 rank S while Saitama scored a 71 rank C even though Saitama is obviously more powerful than Genos. It just shows how human Saitama is and how robotic and perfectly calculated Genos is. Ridiculous how instead of praising his heroic act, they're making Saitama out to be the bad guy when actually if it weren't for him shattering the meteor into pieces, everyone in the city would've died. Humans can be such a corrupt and vile species sometimes. Those two Tank-Top brothers didn't help at all, they were trying to destroy his pride and make him look bad. But its funny because Saitama wasn't really affected by it, he used it as fuel and told everyone off while keeping it real. I like how Genos tells Saitama to go home with him when Saitama is yelling at the people, basically saving Saitama from digging himself deeper with the problems that have arisen with the citizens. Saitama has found a true friend and ally with Genos. It's so unfortunate because all Saitama wants is to be recognized for his heroic deeds and to be accepted by the people, but the opposite keeps happening. It seems like most heroes in the association are concerned about their rank and popularity. Pride and ego both playing a major role with these heroes. They all strive to want to be the most popular and to be a higher rank which is why they go out and fight. Meanwhile Saitama is just doing it for fun, not concerned about rank or popularity lol. This is why Saitama is the goat. The was really wholesome how Mumen Rider, the bicycle hero guy, was the one who sent the letter to Saitama thanking him for defeating the Deep Sea King. That was a pretty sweet moment. My god, Tornado is extremely powerful. The way she took a meteor from space and destroyed that big Godzilla-looking creature was insane. That alien ship looks crazy, definitely some H.R. Giger and Metroid Prime inspiration there with all the intricate details on the exterior of the ship. That winged demon creature looks really ominous and creepy. First character design I've seen to induce that kind of feeling. This is actually going to get intense. I love the concept art design of the blue octopus creature who surveillances the ship, he looks really cool. His death was a little sad to be honest lol, I was starting to like him. I love how Mumen Rider gave a ride to a random person who was injured to the hospital. It's inspiring to see people want to help out even if it's not fighting the monsters. Boros looks tough as hell. He kind of looks like a boss you would find in a Zelda game that takes place in an alternate universe. There's something fishy about pretty boy Amai Mask. The way he without any thought killed the surviving aliens. Which mind you, they were all chained up so they were pretty much helpless. Metal Knight is another one that seems kind of odd. It feels like they're both working behind the scenes secretively within the Hero association. Wow, the animations and art in Season 2 look even more incredible! They look so polished. It's funny how the citizens idolize some of these heroes as if they're a celebrity and it's interesting to see how each hero responds to it. Some live for it, others don't care. King seems to be similar to Saitama where he just wants to live a normal life, taking pleasures in the simple things like buying a limited edition video game that he's been anticipating for 3 years lol. Unfortunately, he's not the hero everyone makes him out to be, he's actually a coward, and a big one at that. That's kind of sweet how Saitama has been the one who's been protecting King the whole time. Every monster that has confronted King has always been defeated by Saitama but King has always gotten the credit for it. Now King has to man up and decide whether he's going to keep living a lie, actually get strong or come out and say that he's a fraud. This is some interesting character study going on right here. Wow, Garou took out everyone in the building, both heroes and villains. He is a monster. He kind of looks like Vegeta lol. I love how Eyelashes had eyelash curlers when about to fight, that had me laughing really hard. I like how Saitama was able to read Blizzard so well and see that she was a toxic bully trying to feed off heroes and not let them surpass her rank. I love how everyone thinks they can take on and defeat Saitama and then when they engage, Saitama doesn't even have to try and he always beats them. Trying to pick on what they think as easy prey but it ends up biting them in the butt every time. Learn to be humble. It's so funny how all these heroes are so worried and concerned with achieving higher rank while Saitama is just reading manga and playing video games. I frickin love it lol. He doesn't worry himself with the superficial. After all, he is a hero just for fun. Interesting to see that friendly interaction Garou had with that kid at the park. I guess he's not a complete inhuman monster after all. Season 2 has a generally darker tone, especially the way all these heroes get taken out by Garou. I love how Saitama was just shopping for a wig and Garou attacked him and it did nothing to him. Then Saitama did the same judo chop and completely knocked him out cold lol. That was hilarious. Pretty cool seeing how resilient Metal Bat is. I had no idea. That giant centipede monster is no joke, he's basically a dragon. Wow, these Season 2 episodes are fantastic. It's fast paced with very few down moments or breaks with each episode going by super quick. I have noticed though, that some of the fighting animations aren't as beautifully exhilarating and kinetically stylized as in the 1st season. They're kind of disappointing and feel very underwhelming, they just feel flashy. Some of the art style has changed as well, like the way metal looks on Genos and Metal Knight. It looks like spray paint, it's tacky. Also, some of the sound effects sound busted as hell, as if they turned the gain to 100. At times it felt like I was watching something else, I had forgotten I was watching One Punch. I also noticed that this season doesn't really focus on Saitama as much but instead on other heroes and fighters which is kind of meh. I was hoping they'd go more in depth with Saitama's backstory. Like it would've been cool to know about his family or to see him when he was a kid. Like I understand that this show is a parody towards shonen anime, but to have the whole season basically be about everyone other than the main guy is kind of absurd. If there's one word that could describe Season 2, it would be underwhelming. Other than that, Season 2's story and character development/arcs were great. It's pretty ominous and kind of funny how there's now a Monster Association that's trying to take down the Hero Association. Really cool seeing hints of Garou's backstory of when he was a kid. Since childhood, he always rooted for the monsters because they were always outnumbered and were always defeated easily. But it seems there's something more to his upbringing. Maybe something happened to him at school, like he was bullied or something. This anime has some of the most exciting and exhilarating fight sequences and animations I've ever seen in an anime. They really are incredible and fascinating to look at. The art style is beautiful to look at as well with the use of color and kinetic hand drawn animations. It's all a dazzling feast for the eyes, there's so much rich and intricate detail. The audio and soundtrack also does a fantastic job at elevating the scenes and making them feel more exciting. Clever, hilarious and exhilarating - the show is brilliant in how it executes everything, it's all beautifully polished. The pacing is basically perfection. This show has some of the best humor I've ever seen in any piece of media. And even though you already expect Saitama to kill every villain that comes his way in one blow, there's always an excitement and anticipation in seeing how he takes them out and watching the fight unfold. This anime does such an amazing job at balancing the comedic hilarity and the intense fighting. It's a beautiful mix that they have perfected. Overall, Season 1 was phenomenal and amazing. Season 2 was underwhelming with the fighting animations but still good and worth watching.

    So it's a battle anime with the premise of the hero being able to kill/destroy the big bad with one punch. Surprisingly it was better than I thought, and more diverse than what I thought it was going to be. I'm still not overly impressed, but it definitely passed the time. I also will be watching season 2.
