A tv show/Anime review by: Lee Sonogan
(2015-) 24min/ Animation, action, comedy (Season 1)
Saitama and his sidekick, Genos become official heroes as they fight monsters and learn from other superheroes. Saitama is called One punch man because it only takes him one punch to win any fight. This usually makes his foes explode with gut flying around in a gory fashion. Its animation action crossed with its over the top type of humour creating an awesome blend of adult cartoon goodness.
The animation is very detailed and each character benefits from its style. In this world, there are many monsters and robots that are good and bad. One punch man interacts with them with some of the craziest and epic scenes I have ever seen. I like Saitamas character because he is somewhat depressed and unmotivated with his power. His power is so strong, he is chill is every situation like a boss.
Overall, its style and action make it a one of a kind show. The show is very fast-paced with a lot happening quickly. Though you can understand the story fairly quickly. The show has equal quality fights compared to Dragon ball z. I recommend this anime to new people in the genre and people who already enjoy animation.
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. –
