Season 1
One-Punch Man

Critics Consensus

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.

Critic Reviews for One-Punch Man Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

A great title that will satisfy those that enjoy equal portions of actions and parody, although the latter is obviously aimed at a more mature audience, since it demands for someone to think it through, in order to appreciate it

Even by the ridiculous standards of the superhero genre, One-Punch Man's ballpark craziness is a league all its own.

Mar 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Eeven if you aren't a fan of anime or obscure superhero lore, One-Punch Man is a burst of fresh air that just might be the thing you didn't even know you were looking for.

Feb 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Whacky comedy abounds in this fantastic parody of the superhero and shonen genre.

Feb 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Aside from the genius humour and excellent knack for eschewing convention however, One-Punch Man still delivers in the action and drama departments.

Oct 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Every single frame of animation in this show has so much care put into it.

Oct 30, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a one-two punch of hard hitting action and comedy, and well worth checking out.

Oct 30, 2018 | Rating: 8.8/10 | Full Review…

Presents comically exaggerated villains, idiotic and incompetent heroes, and an accidentally powerful protagonist whose thriftiness and deadpan humor make him -- and this show -- truly one of a kind.

Oct 30, 2018 | Full Review…

It's very lighthearted, very funny.

Oct 30, 2018 | Full Review…

The series creatively mixes cliche with ridicule, which makes it appealing simultaneously to superhero fans and critics.

    The best anime show ever I have watched till now. Lots of love and respect to One and Yusuke Murata from a fan from India.

    Great show. One of my favorite mangas.

    One punch man is one of my favorite anime, it's animation is spectacular, it's comedic attempts are hillarious, and the fights are downright stunning. The only complaints i have are the lack of stakes and the 1 dimensional villains, but those aren't really great faults because i'm pretty sure those are intentional, overall amazing
  • Mar 30, 2019
    One of the best Anime i have ever seen.
  • Mar 20, 2019
    Just a wannabe watchmen satire.
  • Mar 04, 2019
    Not a good show. Don't recommend it.
  • Feb 24, 2019
    Just incredible. Best anime yet. Flawless and purely hilarious.
  • Jan 24, 2019
    Very humorous, creative and emotional. It deals with interesting issues and also shows that it is not always awesome to be a superhero with exreme power. Looking forward to season 2!
