One-Punch Man: Road to Hero

In Saitama's early days, before he lost all his hair and came to acquire his iconic superhero suit, he lived in a shady apartment complex run by a cranky old woman.

Can Saitama resolve this situation peacefully, or are neighborly relations in his building about to take a violent nosedive?
