Season 1 is the best overall, I'd recommend anyone to watch this series over any other show out there. Season 2 felt like it was a hard pill to swallow, definitely not what I was anticipating.

Great messages

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (9):
Kids say (44):

This entertaining anime series uses humor to tell the story of a hero whose existential crisis brings some depth to the battles and classic anime villains. Saitama is a likable character, and you can't help but sympathize with him as he struggles to figure out his personal issues. Thanks to his powerful punches, the larger-than-life monsters he confronts seem unusually fragile, which leads to some hilarious moments. As a result, One-Punch Man offers some fun, lighthearted comedy amidst the gore, which anime fans will appreciate.
