One Punch Man
Oh my god. My mailbox was being spammed by messages from people saying that I should definitely check this out. Ever since the new anime chart was published it’s been nothing but hype. Even the manga seems to be booming.
The sad thing is that I don’t understand why. The artwork is nothing special. The protagonist looks rather weird and those enemies he fights, except for the last ones, look pointless and stupid. You really have to like this sort of thing to be able to appreciate it.
The story doesn’t really sit well with me either. There’s no background information. That bald guy suddenly gained super powers after he defeated a weird-looking crab monster? Come on… I am not at all a fan of slapstick comedies where they try (and fail) to push out a serious action story.
I am simply not impressed by what I’ve seen so far. Not at all. I don’t think that I will be following this if the second episode is exactly like the first. I don’t see any reason why I should tell anyone any different.
Plot Summary: One-Punch Man is a super hero who has trained so hard that his hair has fallen out, and who can overcome any enemy with one punch. However, because he is so strong, he has become bored and frustrated with winning all his battles so easily.
