Description
In this new action-comedy, everything about a young man named Saitama screams "AVERAGE," from his lifeless expression, to his bald head, to his unimpressive physique. However, this average-looking fellow doesn't have your average problem... He's actually a superhero that's looking for tough opponents! The problem is, every time he finds a promising candidate he beats the snot out of them in one punch. Can Saitama finally find an evil villain strong enough to challenge him? Follow Saitama through his hilarious romps as he searches for new bad guys to challenge!

Nominated for the 7th annual Manga Taishou Award.

I have a thing for the underdog, but when it's a hero who is actually really plain and fades in the background as easy as can be (like seriously okay look at Volume 2 cover, he's just IN THE CORNER--like lmao what are you doing there bro just suddenly hanging)--have we ever seen him embodied as much as THIS GUY RIGHT HERE? The main guy? The guy who's bald and who just is fantastically hilarious? First off: I love this unorthodox protagonist. He's finally the strongest and then--oh man, you realize how lonely it is once you've reached the pinnacle. What I'm interested in seeing now instead of his ascent to gaining power (which, while always lovely, is always overplayed and focused on too much in shounen manga), is how he deals with his own very average hero lifestyle, and how he'll break into this whole systemic society--like will anyone (important) actually realize his potential and how much he's effectively saved them all from getting screwed over time and again? Also with characters that do recognize his strength, it's interesting to see how really uninterested he is with dealing with them (they're like nuisances at best ahaha). ALSO I'm pretty interested in basically seeing superheroes in manga, okay. Best thing.

In terms of nightly_001's complaint about the drawing style not being as detailed as ES21: first off, consider that ES21 is a (somewhat?) realistic sports manga. Now look at what we're dealing with for this manga: Superheroes. And when we think of superheroes, we think of DC and Marvel, Superman, Iron Man, etc. And that's from the West. And they have a peculiar style of inking and drawing, one that this artist has most likely kept in mind. You want a suspension of disbelief, and layered with the fact that this isn't meant to be much of a serious manga, detailed drawings on everything would not really help the tone or feel of it. Sure, details make it hella funny when employed right (i.e. stuff like Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo), but on the general side, funny manga usually don't tell to have as much srs bzns details as serious manga, right? To be an artist means you also have to be versatile in your medium. The CG effects on the manga be a complaint, but think about it: at some points, we get slow frame by frame "shots", almost like watching it on a show or a movie, right? I think those are probably are to help that feeling. There's a reason for everything an artist does, and seeing as this artist is frigging kamikaze God in his ridiculous art skills imo (like seriously, Eyeshield 21, if you haven't read it, go do it) I trust his judgment. (Then again, this is just my two cents.)

yes i was like you who is reading this right now i was like "wtf a 9 rating is this that good" then i started reading the first chapter a little and i was starting to think this was over rated but then as i finish this and caught up in chapters i can understand why everyone likes this so much. the concept and story is really funny about some every day guy who is still trying to be a super hero yet he was god like abilities. and the way the other characters react to him is really funny; how ever i think the main component that makes this manga great is the amazing art, the art is on another level and the fight scene and general scenes are pretty high quality, i dont really get much into gag mangas but i really like this one. i suggest that any one who wants to read this manga, dont let the rating and comments make you read this with a highly critical attitude just give it its own chance. also i like how his name is One punch man but when you call him O.P man it can also describe what he which is "Over Powered" man

when the first chapter got out i tried reading it, didn't expect much since it was a gag but for some reason it piqued my interest. . then the second chapter came and third. . After that i was utterly HOOKED! This manga has Lamest poor excuse of a lead character that ever crawled out of bed in the morning on a Sunday. . but the twist is that he is overly powered to the point that all his enemies are defeated as the title says in one punch. . And he doesn't have any I fight to protect my friends or for love and peace or any of that bull crap. . He's just a hero as a hobby that lives like any other normal person. . Give this a try and i guaranty you will enjoy it. . this manga has full of potential I just hope it is realized properly. .

The real deal. Gag action manga taken to a whole other level. I thought Beelzebub and Gintama was as far as the shounen industry would go in satirising itself, but ooohhh no. This manga draws on the ridiculous premise and characters in a completely absurdist take on familiar action tropes from all over. The main character seems to have one fist (literally) broken past the fourth wall; his anomalous presence in what would have otherwise been a standard shounen universe is what gives this manga its distinctly off beat tone, and perhaps serves as an allegory for itself within the manga industry.

In a not-so-subtle homage to the action genre as a whole, the whole affair is beautifully drawn in hilariously atypically serious-shounen style (seeing eyeshield models everywhere is especially tickling) to clash with the ludicrous gag tone. Props to One and especially Murata Yuusuke for taking such a professional risk and pulling it off perfectly.

I'm looking forward to every new chapter. The art is excellent, the humor is good, characters are well designed. I weight this one far better than most manga. A recommendation to everyone.

Murata Yuusuke is enough as a reason to read anything. The name is like a guarantee that this will be good. Wait, it is already good with the released chapters. I was skeptical at first seeing the new manga, then I saw the drawing and I had to read it by all means. As for those who miss the traditional way of drawing, screening and inking everything take nearly forever, sometimes the artist has to use digital editing to some extend, it's called web comic for a reason you know.

This manga is hilarious enough to make you crawling around laughing in front of the screen like a mental case. The best way to describe it can only be it is funny as hell!!! Not to laugh while reading this is impossible.

Did I mention that the covers look so badass? Another brilliant work to burn money for!
