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. When he discovers the kindly old tailor who mends his clothes is being exploited by a loan shark, Saitama leaps into action - only to discover the culprits who have been terrorizing the town are his very own neighbors! Can Saitama resolve this situation peacefully, or are neighborly relations in his building about to take a violent nosedive?
