This week’s Weekly Anime is the comedic action-packed anime One Punch Man.

I initially watched One Punch Man because it was all the rave in the anime community when it first aired. I’m glad I jumped on the bandwagon because the show itself is extremely comedic and will have you laughing the whole way through.

The anime follows the life of Saitama, a seemingly boring and ordinary citizen that secretly has an extremely unique hobby; being a superhero. Since he was a child he yearned to be a superhero, he achieves his goal by training relentlessly for three years, causing him to lose all of his hair in the process. Now Satiama is incredibly powerful and literally no one can beat him in battle. In fact, Saitama is so powerful that all it takes him to defeat people in battle is one punch! Because of this he’s no longer able to enjoy the thrill of battling villains and becomes quite bored.

This changes with the introduction of Genos, a 19 year old cyborg who wishes to be Saitama’s disciple after witnessing how powerful he is. After Saitama agrees to become Genos’s mentor, Genos proposes that the two join the Hero Association in order to become certified heros. That way the duo would be able to be recognized for their positives contributions to society. Saitama is extremely shocked that nobody knows who he is and quickly agrees.

This all sets the plot for the entire anime as the two new friends go through the show encountering a variety of villains that they take upon themselves to defeat.

I enjoyed this anime so much, anyone who enjoys comedy and action is sure to enjoy it also. The companionship that Genos and Saitama have is to die for.

One Punch Man stems from the Japanese manga with the same title. It initially aired in Oct. of 2015 and ended in December. While MadHouse, the company that made One Punch Man into a television adaptation, has stated that it’s currently working on the production of the anime, an official release date has yet to be announced.
