Anime review

Can somebody just find enough words for me to describe how ‘Awesome’ this anime is! This year’s best Anime of 2015 award sure goes to ‘OPM’ without a doubt. Well even if you make a top 10 ranking OPM will be on “#1” with a rating of 1000000/10. You know that superhero series are all about beating the shit out of evil guys, and this Anime shows that perfectly.

What happened between episode 1-11 (Short summary)

All the three years Saitama was beating up evil guys and some other person took his credit. But the problem was that he was insanely strong because of which every fight used to end up with one punch. There was no one in the world that could be a match for him, that’s why there was no will behind his work. Saitama joins the Hero association after he finds that no one recognizes him and because of is bald funny looking face people thought nothing of him but just a pushover. But Saitama somehow got promoted to ‘B Rank’.

Saitama continued to work as hero whereas people who saw his work closely are aware of his strength one of them is ‘Bang – The silver fang’, ‘Genos’ and two associates of Hero association. Saitama is continued to criticized as cheater because, people don’t want to believe that someone this strong exist and his face acts as a catalyst. Many a times such situations got me angry and i always though “Why Saitama doesn’t show how he is when he is serious?” But Episode 12 got that answer for me.

Episode 12 – Boros vs Saitama

One Punch Man - Boros vs SaitamaOne Punch Man - Boros vs Saitama
One Punch Man – Boros vs Saitama

In Episode 12 we saw that how ‘Boros’ is strong, and despite giving his everything he got his ass beaten up by Saitama. ‘Consecutive normal punch’ is one of the weakest attack of Saitama and he got torn to pieces by that attack. If wasn’t for his regenerative ability he would not have a single chance against Saitama. But even so he made Saitama to throw ‘Serious punch’ which got him destroyed. I bet Saitama has level above that, but we still not got to see it in Manga. That’s where i understood, Saitama fights all his enemies by keeping his power level at lowest but they are so weak that even that lowest level is enough for them to take down in One Punch and in Episode 12 Saitama was fighting with Boros at the same level he always fought but when he got serious, Boros got destroyed and that wasn’t even his final form!! The fight is beyond god like.┬áSaitama is trying not to end the fight in One Punch and that’s his goal, Well at least for now its seems like that.

Character development

To be honest, throughout the entire Anime i didn’t felt any Character development. In fact the characters felt ‘Natural.’

Wrapping up the review

Seriously – this series is one of the best Anime ever! With something different than typical Japanese Superhero Anime like DBZ, Naruto. This series is more like an Anime that tackles DC and Marvel Cartoon series like Justice league or Superman and wins by a long shot. Animation is really awesome. In fact the One Punch Man Manga has awesome art and the Animation of the series elevates it even more. Awesome and badass background music that certainly suits the setting and perfect execution of music according to the scenes gives you more ‘awe’ feeling.

Will there be a second season?

The way they ended the episode, Now i really want to see the Second Season. “Please, Oh my Holy MadHouse Animation Studio! You did a great job with One Punch Man, Please continue to animate it till it ends!!” For now you can read our theory and predictions on OPM Second Season.
