Not Your Average Superhero
Nothing about Saitama passes the eyeball test when it comes to superheroes, from his lifeless expression to his bald head to his unimpressive physique. However, this average-looking guy has a not-so-average problem—he just can’t seem to find an opponent strong enough to take on! Every time a promising villain appears, he beats the snot out of ’em with one punch! Can Saitama finally find an opponent who can go toe-to-toe with him and give his life some meaning? Or is he doomed to a life of superpowered boredom?
Why Read It?
One-Punch Man is a very popular new manga series from Japan that originated as a webcomic. What separates it from the pack is that it doesn't take itself too seriously, and even pokes fun at the tropes and stereotypes of mainstream manga. There aren't really any long, drawn-out battle sequences between over-the-top but equally matched superheroes and villains because, as can be gathered from the series title, the protagonist can end any fight with just one punch! There's still a fair share of action, but it's presented in a different way than My Hero Academia, Bleach, and other more traditional superhero mangas.
