Right, so, what's the point in One Punch Man? If he's the strongest super hero ever, where's the entertainment? Granted I haven't watched the show, but I just don't see how you can be entertained by watching someone, episode after episode, winning fights with just "one punch" or whatever. Can someone explain?
@Marshal Bowdrie, i feel the same, someone please elaborate.
@Marshal Bowdrie, well that's what I thought at first, but the show does a really good job of balancing out how often you actually see him use his super powers by throwing other random (much weaker) super heroes into the mix. So for a while some bad guy will beat up on said other superheroes, meanwhile one punch man is off being an idiot somewhere else. So while yes, he is beating bad guys with one punch, it's mostly about the humor that comes along with it.
@Marshal Bowdrie, from what I understand and have heard other people say, One Punch Man is more of a joke character and anime. I don't mean to compare, especially since I haven't watched One Punch Man and am more of a DBZ fan, but it wouldn't be taken as seriously as something like DBZ or Attack on Titan I don't think. Just throwing my two cents in though
@Marshal Bowdrie, yeah it's more of a comedic show. I liked the show a lot but you're right. The fact that he can already beat anyone without trying kinda took a little bit of the enjoyment out of it for me. It's mainly for laughs. But I appreciate how it's different from any classic show
@Marshal Bowdrie, that IS the point of One Punch Man, or at least it is in part. He becomes so strong that he is constantly looking for opponents that he could really fight. Helps progress the action of the plot and adds more humour to the mundane aspects of his life (he's more interested in food sales than in any opponent).
@Marshal Bowdrie, So, as someone who loves Bleach, One Piece, DBZ, and many other things like it, I was skeptical at first. After watching the first episode with my friend (neither of us had seen it and were going in blind) we loved it. Binge watched it when we had time the next day. It is an amazing action/comedy anime. No, there's not super deep story meaning or crazy elaborate themes in the characters, but it is a great anime. I would definitely recommend watching at least the first episode or two and seeing if you like it.
@Marshal Bowdrie, because it is about the characters not the fights
@Dephenistrator, watch it, it's fvcking hilarious and one of my favorite anime
@Marshal Bowdrie, it's basically the Rick and Morty of anime
@Marshal Bowdrie, the show isn't so much about OPM defeating everyone in a single punch as it is about him seeking out a proper challenge now that he is this strong. Call it a side if thr super man syndrome you don't see shown to often. In a way it's depressing. That said, thr show focuses alot on other characters as well..it's hard to explain why it works...it's just good
@Marshal Bowdrie, there's other fights in the show that dont involve him that are good, and its actually really funny how much he doesn't care about these enemies that think they're all powerful.
@Jay Garrick, don't forget how the anime makes fun of and parody's most other anime.
@Marshal Bowdrie, it's actually really smart because it forces them to find other ways to build character development. In pretty much every other action anime, character development is linear with power level and every fight is the protagonist getting their ass kicked before they learn something and get stronger. Here they actually have to try. Granted it's more about comedy but I still love it.
@Marshal Bowdrie, that's pretty much how I feel about Superman
@Marshal Bowdrie, it's a very very funny show with the main premise being Saitama's public image. It does however have some of the best fight scenes I've seen in an anime in a long time, because there are other heroes who aren't all powerful, and Saitama can't really be everywhere at once; or better yet know what's going on instantly, because he could probably get around the world in a minute if he really felt like it, because his strength and speed appears limited by how much he happens to give a shjt about the current situation... so since he usually doesn't give a shjt he stays normal until a fight presents itself or something else happens.
@Marshal Bowdrie, see that's the whole point, he struggles with his meaningless existence
@Jay Garrick, is the show called one punch man or is it called something else I want to watch it
@Marshal Bowdrie, It's not a show about a superhero saving the world. It's a show about a dude who is just a hero for fun. If that doesn't sum it up for ya. It's a comedy not an action packed anime.
I'm sad bleach ended, but one punch man is good as well, although there's a rumor saying bleach may (very small possibility ) resume when the manga ends
@the zuisher, from what I've seen the entire manga is to be animated. So we will get to see some epic dual wielding ichigo action in anime form when the time comes.
@Cenyoawakened, thank you for that I was starting to doubt what I had heard about it
@the zuisher, I just hope it doesn't take too long. I wanna watch kenpachi's training.
@the zuisher, despite the fact that I know I'll probably cry my eyes out.
@Cenyoawakened, I haven't been reading it but I've been trying to
@the zuisher, we'll don't worry. They make the questionable decision to make Kenny more powerful. (Tears AND making the strongest psychopath in the series stringer?! Now you have to keep reading ;) )
Ah, One Punch Man. The only Anime I watch
One punch man or bleach? Choose your universe dude
@DerpyPig, one bleach man
@DerpyPig, (mexican music intensifies)
Bleach Manga.......that's all I'll say.
Should I give in and just watch this already?
