The seemingly ordinary and unimpressive Saitama has a rather unique hobby: being a hero. In order to pursue his childhood dream, he trained relentlessly for three years—and lost all of his hair in the process. Now, Saitama is incredibly powerful, so much so that no enemy is able to defeat him in battle. In fact, all it takes to defeat evildoers with just one punch has led to an unexpected problem—he is no longer able to enjoy the thrill of battling and has become quite bored.
This all changes with the arrival of Genos, a 19-year-old cyborg, who wishes to be Saitama’s disciple after seeing what he is capable of. Genos proposes that the two join the Hero Association in order to become certified heroes that will be recognized for their positive contributions to society, and Saitama, shocked that no one knows who he is, quickly agrees. And thus begins the story of One Punch Man, an action-comedy that follows an eccentric individual who longs to fight strong enemies that can hopefully give him the excitement he once felt and just maybe, he’ll become popular in the process.

You have probably seen this already but I think it has a great start and then progressively gets worse. I loved everything to do with the hero society but hated it when the action was taken anywhere away from one punch man.
I think the jaded nature of OPM creates an entertaining character flaw that I love seeing explored. It’s just that the need for action and dramatic pay off at the end ruined the show for me. I would recommend it to everyone since it’s so popular and genuinely has a lot of aspects to enjoy but its not my favourite.
