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!

Note:
- One Punch-Man is the remake of the original.
- Nominated for the 7th annual Manga Taishou Award.

Great Humour

Really good as a gag manga, but I guess, since the stakes aren't high enough, the plot kind of loses its impact. (have not read all the volumes yet, probably challenging monsters appear later?)
Well, more like, there are no stakes at all. While Saitama IS ridiculously overpowered, since it's because of his hard work, so it's done in a sympathetic manner.
Though it seems that only Saitama's hard work has paid off, while the other heroes who probably train just as hard are left in the dust. At some point, even the monsters become sympathetic due to the fact that they stand no chance. At. All.
So while it's great as comedy, sometimes apart from the sheer impact of the action scenes, the motivations and stakes really don't add up. It seems really superficial. And while one-shotting everything is hilarious, it's almost insulting to the struggles of the rest of the cast.
btw saitama has great villain potential. Would 100% read if he were villain!

This is one of the best manga I've ever feasted my eyes on. The action scenes from the artwork are breathtaking, possibly even better than the actual animation's.

While some chapters drag, the comedy never fails to make me laugh and brighten my day.

i do not like how sexualised the siblings are in this version[tatsumaki and fubuki]
i understand why
Lolis are hot and boobs allways rule[money]
but it cheapens them both

one of the better comedies the last couple of years
feels very much like Gintama , Sexy Commando Gaiden - Sugoi yo!! Masaru-san or Pyu to Fuku! Jaguar
awesome ++ in other words

Best protagonist

Best protagonist ever.
And the story is fast and awesome. The redrawn version definitely adds something tand it's quite faithful to ONE's version.

Only thing I really dislike in this version is the way they draw the female characters, ESPECIALLY Fubuki. She's way too sexualized and she looks weak and annoying. In ONE's version she's badass and interesting. It's a big big waste of a good female chara in a story that lacks a bit in this department.

But still, great story, recommended.

This manga is the best superhero manga right now. It's funny, full of action and the art is amazing.
Read the first chapter and you will be sold.

My favorite part about this manga is that..
Every single character, even the backgrounds, have so much detail and are unique, having their own distinct feature that sets them apart from other characters...
EXCEPT the main character.
The dynamic between Saitama's abilities and his appearance and personality make the manga more interesting entertaining along with the comedic aspects.
The story and the art are easy to follow along.
It's the type of manga I wouldn't mind re-reading several times.

This is one that you need to just take a step back from and enjoy. It has so many incredibly funny moments that you will struggle to not laugh.

I dont know about the original, I don't really care how long the plot takes to progress or where it goes and I don't really care about the art as stick figures can make you laugh. I am 100% looking at it from an enjoyment side, if you read it and laugh then your day just got a little better.

This is how a gag manga should be. This is comedy, even things I would not normally find funny had me in fits of laughter. It really is a unique blend and hits the funny bone every time.

Saitama instantly became one of my favorite characters.

liked so much that i started reading ONE raws , and the drawing did not bother me... it made me laugh and think the same...of course MURATA art is insane i always re-read the new chapters.

This is basically just going over the original and drawing new art, so why are there 8 page chapters coming out every 2 or more weeks? It's absurd and it seems like the artist just sees this as a day-job or something. There is literally an entire chapter devoted to illustrating a robot flying through the sky, I just don't understand it.



Update:
I think you'll find that if you "take into consideration how amazing the art is" as well as the art of hundreds of other series, and also take into account that he is literally just making an existing, well-respected series look pretty, you'll find that it really shouldn't take 2 weeks to churn out so little, even at the arguably high level of quality with which he depicts it.

He isn't making a new series or anything, there's no new ground being broken here, he's just taking something that's already there and altering the art. If his art had any sort of impact on the narrative or he had a particularly unique style, I could at least entertain the thought that maybe 8 page chapters could warrant two weeks of work, or that an entire chapter being devoted to a robot flying around is justified, but that is not the case. The artist is certainly capable of making pretty pictures, but that's all he does here, and there's no way you can convince me that taking 2 weeks for 8 pages of that isn't, at best, lazy and uninspired.

It got a funny & overpowered hero. Unlike superman, this guy doesn't have a kryptonite that makes him weak knee.

Bet you the anime will be awesome.
