One Punch Man
‘One Punch’ is a Japanese web comic created by an unknown artist in 2009, that was a few years later converted into a manga. Once 2012 came around, it went a step further in becoming an anime series.
‘One Punch Man’ tells the story of Saitama, an unimpressive individual who has the extremely unique hobby of being a superhero. In pursuit of his childhood dream, he trained relentlessly for three years, but all of this training soon led to a big problem for him. Saitama became so powerful that all he needs is a single punch to win any fight he faces, which he finds very boring and unfulfilling.
Eventually, however, a 19 year old cyborg named Genos arrives in his hometown, and after seeing his immense power decides he wishes to become his disciple in order to get stronger himself, which can only lead to more problems.
‘One Punch Man’ is so much more than just a fantastic comedy which pokes fun at anime tropes and other superhero-related media in general, it’s also one of the single funniest animes I’ve ever seen.
