One-Punch Man is an ongoing Japanese web comic that is based on the superhero web manga written by ONE and illustrated by Yusuke Murata.
The series follows Saitama who has super-human strength, but unlike many others, he can finish his opponents with a single punch—and for him, that’s boring. He’s constantly in search of a fight that’ll make him sweat, yet he’s consistently let down due to his overwhelming volume of strength, which was obtained by 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, 100 squats, 10 kilometers a day and no air conditioner—absurd, I know. He’s a laid-back, astonishingly strong hero, who receives no respect or credit for his heroic actions.
One-Punch Man Season 1 can be streamed on Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Video and iTunes.
