Onepunch Man (alternatively One-Punch Man or One Punch Man) is a new currently airing anime based on a manga that is based on another manga. The original manga was written and drawn by ONE, who has done...really nothing else I can think of. But his art looks like:

It is currently still ongoing but it is now being redrawn by Murata Yuusuke, who you might recall as the artist of Eyeshield 21. Or maybe not. Either way, his art looks like:

So yeah, pretty drastic improvement. But why is this in this section and not in the section where you'd expect a thread devoted to a manga to be? Because there's an anime now! The anime adaptation of OPM is the best adaptation of a manga I've ever seen, and I highly recommend watching it (although i still recommend reading the manga because it's incredible).

As of writing this OP there are 8 episodes released and we expect to get a total of 12 before it ends, with a hope for future seasons as well. I would highly recommend both the manga and anime adaptation to everyone, because it's fantastic.

But what is it?

One-Punch Man is the story of a man who decided he wanted to be a hero, so he trained to become strong. And he became very strong. Too strong. He became the most powerful man on the planet, possibly the universe, and now defeats all opponents with a single punch. Unfortunately, overwhelming power comes with a price: Fighting becomes boring.

He's joined by his "disciple" Genos, who is as generic an anime protagonist as it gets. He worships the ground Saitama walks on and strives to learn everything he can from his confused "master". The rest of the cast fills out from there, but to summarize the world and everybody in it is kind of crazy.

It's a very fun series that blends beautiful action sequences with hilarious comedy. Really very good. Discuss now.

Oh, I thought we already had a thread for this. Oh well, OPM does deserve its own thread.

I plan on reading the manga in conjunction with the anime, while waiting for new episodes to come out.

Don't knock on ONE's series though. Despite (and partially because of) the looks it's a fun read

i'm sure it is, but once you go Murata it's hard to go back

I'm only disappointed Murata's version doesn't in any way reflect Tatsumaki being intentionally the worst drawn character in the series

My favorite thing about Saitama is that he embraces his negative reputation so that the heroes who are genuinely risking their lives to save people get the praise they deserve.

It appears you are in luck.

Poorly drawn Tatsumaki in the anime now. It's fantastic.

Very, very good. I've yet to meet anybody who didn't enjoy it.

I really like these OVAs but the quality is just not up there with the main series. That said, I'm glad that these filler episodes are broken off into OVAs instead of being mixed in with the show like in Naruto or something, and also that they're cut down to 12 minute episodes instead of a full 24. It's a good system.
