One-Punch Man

For Month One of 2021, I give you, the exceptional One Punch Man. Packed with action, and a whole bunch of laughs.

One-Punch Man

My anime recommendation of the month, this first month of the year is One-Punch Man. This anime is actually one of my favorite action-comedies to date, and it comes in two short seasons of 12 episodes each (so far).

The series follows the exploits of an unknown, jaded, and bald-headed superhero called Saitama who has reached the pinnacle of his strength. Saitama has now gotten so strong that he can defeat any enemy with a single punch. But this accomplishment has left him so bored and  disappointed, that he goes about his days looking rather glum and lacklustre, practicing his heroics as a hobby.

That is, of course, until he is discovered by another superhero called Genos. Genos is so awe-stricken by Saitama that he begs to become his disciple... and the rest of the story tells itself from there.

So if you’re interested in O.P anime, One Punch Man is a good choice - and it comes packed with action and side-splitting humour too! 😁
