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?
Story: One Punch Man is probably one of the most hilarious, Action-Packed and amazing manga's I've read in a LONG time. It's so entertaining and different. Usually when a story starts it's more built up to where the protagonist is becoming stronger but with One Punch Man it gives this sense of what if the Protagoist is already over powered and with that you would think it would be a boring plot but it's not! :D It's actually a really interesting story of "What can you do if your too over-powered?" Characters:(Some Spoilers) Most of the characters are very dependent one Power or rankings within the Super hero organization they have but with Saitama's character even though people may see him as "Weak" because of his apperence he is actually one of the most truest heros in that universe. Some hero's would only do it for rankings but Saitama never really cared about all that much he focuses on saving his town more than "If i'm Rank One in the Top Class I'll get lots of money and respect." He soon meet's people along the way and they realize that he is infact very stong and shows what it really is like to be a hero. Art: ..... I really need to say it.. Yusuke Murata Is one of the BEST manga artist of all time! The Original Art is a different story though But I DEFINATLY recommend you read the Original Webcomic too :D Overall: I think many people will enjoy it especally with the new anime coming out give it a shot and read both the Webcomic and Remake you'll love both. ^^ Sometimes the Remake does go a different path then the Original by ONE does so it's good to read both!
I don't really like doing reviews before the series is finished but this one i have to make an exception for. (I did the webcomic first) ~Spoilers~ This is like the Anime/Webcomic which i am glad, all follow the source material to the letter, and makes this series a cut above the rest. The lack of deviation is why the entire series is beautiful. This Manga is drawn by Yuusuke Murata a very well know artist, and fan of the webcomic. The comedic overtone and the really impressive fight scenes are at the heart and soul of the series. The introduction of class ranks and positions within the ranks; in-fighting and backstabbing at lower echelons is very intriguing. There really is no slow point in the series that i can recall, so the pacing is very good. In order the series should be done is: Anime-Manga-Webcomic. That way the story will drive you to stay with it. Well worth all the time you spend with it. Yes there was some copy-pasting here but it really is a very good series that should be in anyones top ten. Well as soon as we hit the Garou arc the following of the source material has now diverged, but it still is super good and a very good and surprising storyline.
Very nice story that succeeds in making a satire out of shounen shows nowadays. Making the monsters present themselves for 1 - 10 min by overpowering the heroes and showing theyre power to humanity just to later get one punched by Sensei Saitama is very satisfying and pleasent to watch and read. Murata's art is AMAZING and very detailed. I can't say anything else, I am just out of words. Due to the MC being the depressed god he is, there is not much to cover about him and therefore a lot of characters in the backround have a good backstory and ideals cover in the manga. I RECOMMEND
