One-Punch Man

In a city plagued with thugs, mutants, and supervillains, Saitama decides to become a superhero for fun. He envisions an exciting life where he is constantly challenged with tough opponents, but after three years of intense training, he's become so strong that he defeats every enemy with one punch! His dream of engaging challenging foes has gone up in smoke, and his overpowered life is filled with overpowering boredom. Then a cyborg named Genos learns about Saitama's amazing ability and begs him to make him his disciple. Saitama isn't interested in taking on an apprentice, but Genos isn't giving up. Can he convince the disillusioned hero to teach him the secret of his strength? And will Saitama ever find a worthy adversary to battle?

This manga is poorly written and I can't understand why anyone would give it a high rating. If you write a story, you can't just say "Saitama fought in a tournament. siatama won the tournament, the end". You have to draw it out, create suspense and tension. However, the way this is done in one punch man is just dropping the storyline completely and switching to another in a way that doesn't make much sense and leaves the reader wondering what's going on. The writer will just abandon the story and focus on something completely unrelated, and then he'll abandon that and write about something else. He changes from the main story to side stories at the flip of a switch. It's like he's severely afflicted with ADHD and can't complete a train of thought. I think the anime is better because the story has been fleshed out and editted a little better.  This manga is written for no other purpose than to nickle and dime the customer. A fight sequence won't lat a few cells or a couple pages, it'll drag on for 5-6 issues. And then another hero will fight for another 5-6 episodes.Before you realize it, 40-50 issues have gone by and absolutely nothing has happenned aside from a million cells depicting an action sequence. It's like the writer is engaged in a battle of attrition with the reader, seeing how long the reader will commit to reading utterly boring manga with no plot and stupid fights dragging on. I'd rather everyone in a fight sequence would die insatead of having 6to trudsge through another 8 episodes of some stupid fight between side characters that I could care less about. The manga has an interesting premise and has some relatable characters but overall the execution is a chaotic money grab. The writer doesn't want to actually write a story, he just wants to pump out one issue after another of loosely connected images and no plot. I'm at issue 100 and I'll be honest, I've learned to hate this godawful manga. it's horrible.
