Looking for a new anime that’s fun has a funny and interesting story and awesome characters? Then look no further! One Punch Man is the anime for you! One Punch Man is easily my favorite anime of 2015! I have nothing but praise for this anime its so well done that I couldn’t help but want more. It took me back to when I was a kid watching Dragon Ball Z and how I would get so excited and flip out from what a character just did or something crazy that happened it felt good and sort of like falling in love with anime all over again. That isn’t to say that there isn’t great anime out there because there is! One Punch Man was just sort that breakout hit for me that hit a lot notes and was enjoyable all the way through.
One Punch Man follows Saitama a Hero but not your ordinary hero but he’s a hero for fun! Also because he beats whatever he’s fighting in One Punch! Hence the name of the anime. We get to learn his origin story which is pretty generic at its core if you know almost any Superhero, but its how its done that makes it unique. At first I thought each he’d be in would be really boring and bland and uninteresting. I’m really glad I was wrong though! Yes his fights are pretty short but they are hilarious in a weird way. Throughout the episodes you’ll get to meet other Heroes and you’ll hear some pretty crazy names like Superalloy Darkshine and Puri-Puri Prisoner (who is just the funniest character ever) and you’ll also meet some Heroes with some sweet names like Genos and Silverfang. Each hero is different and unique in their own regard some more useful than others but I ended up caring about each hero that I encountered in the show.
With each Hero they are Ranked as apart of the shows sort of Justice League esc style called the Hero Association. Each hero is ranked based on their ability there’s D-Class, C-Class, B-Class, A-Class, and the highest ranking S-Class. You get the see why the D-Class are the lowest and S-Class are highest but that doesn’t detract from the lower class Heroes though. I actually ended liking more of the lower class Heroes than I did the higher.
I’m trying really hard to not spoil anything because I think if you like anime or are wanting to get into anime you should definitely check out One Punch Man. You should definitely experience this hilarious, action packed, overall amazing anime! Yes it can be a bit strange at some points but it just all felt like a breath of fresh air. There are so many great moments in the show I never wanted the episode to end by the end of the first episode. There were parts where I laughed where I welled up with emotion almost to the point of tears. It was a great ride and I can’t wait for the next season to start! Season 1 just concluded so if you are looking for something to binge watch on Christmas break you have 12 episodes and an OVA to do so! I highly recommend at the very least checking out a couple of episodes of One Punch Man. I give One Punch Man
