Yes, I know what you’re going to say. I know what you’re going to complain about. Yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes. I agree, we really need that season two or- oh, well no I didn’t read the manga. I’m some bandwagon poser? Oh geez, wow, man I never expected to be berated like this before. It’s such a shame that I really don’t care, that could have caused some big problems for me.
Anyway but yes! I have seen the memes, the jokes, the gifs, the many, many, many pictures of round things that are drawn with the “:D” face or however you emote it. So, with the help of my friend having me watch the series, I have seen the beauty that is ONEPUUUUUUUUUUNCH…man. It’s so stupid but so genius at the same time.
The series is based off of a man called Saitama and his abilities to literally one fucking punch everything. I’m not kidding, this guy can break through everything with just one fucking punch. So, back on track, as you can tell I really love this show. It’s about him and his job as becoming a super hero for this organization for super heroes. Here’s the great kicker though, he literally doesn’t give a shit about his job. He just wants credit for what he does and find someone he can’t even one punch.
There’s a word for this, it’s called GENIUS. The whole series plays on this new view and perspective. This guy can literally care less about anything except for the fact that: A) Get rid of evil and B) You speak in 20 words or less about yourself. The series plays off anime tropes, clichés and all that junk. Characters that look so series and badass are literally made fun of in this series if not look like complete tools at time. Even at the ‘sad’ backgrounds or the ‘super powerful and terrifying’ heroes and villains.
It’s great to see anime’s like this mock common stuff that we see in media. Don’t get me wrong, I love them but it is ten times better seeing them being made fun off. Shows like Shimoneta to iu Gainen Ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu Na Sekai *deep breath* and things like Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo are why we love them so much because they mock a lot of things. Well Shimoneta mocks more on the behavior and attitude of Japan lewdness and innocence but it’s all the same in a sense. Saitama is badass reincarnate but in the silliest representation of them all. That’s why we love it.
One Punch Man brings back those wonderful humors and it’s pretty much the reason why we really love it. The fact this guy can literally one hit K.O anything is why we really really really watch it. I love the fact that I’m cheering for the villain to beat this practically unstoppable bald headed machine. It’s great and it’s getting harder to describe in words. Just watch the series, the creator even posted it on a site. Just click here and enjoy the best thing you’ve probably ever seen. (Onepunchman.org for those of you who can’t click it)
