Plain and simple, here we discuss the work of art that is One Punch Man, from ONE's webcomic, to Murata's beautiful manga, to the physical manifestation of hype that is the One Punch Man anime.

I'm really glad this forum (namely the DB subforum) introduced me to this amazing series. I got into it a few months ago and it's just everything I could possibly want in this kind of thing. I got into One Punch Man pretty much just in time to catch wind of the announcement of the anime adaptation, too.

Though I should note that one should be careful about spoilers in this thread, especially those that are only known by those who read the webcomic, since it's the furthest along. Anything that's happened in the anime, let's say, is fair game, no spoiler tags or warnings necessary. If it's been covered by the manga, only worry about the particularly important things that would really qualify as "spoilers."

Episode 2 was just incredible. Introduced my second favorite character in the series and holy heck that jumpscare with Ground Dragon. I'd already read the manga and saw it coming but by golly that was terrifying.

Whenever Saitama punches the screen in slow motion, I always give him a fist-bump. Gosh Saitama is cool. And so is Genos.

You know, reading the manga, I did realize that the stuff going on in OPM was actually pretty gruesome, but dang, seeing it animated only further emphasized that. I don't think I ever really caught that - spoiler alert maybe I guess - that was Mosquito Girl's blood all over the building when Saitama swats her in the manga. Like holy crap, I just always thought he sent her flying Team Rocket style (but still obviously dead). Dude left nothing to bury.

Saitama swatting at that one mosquito was also made 10 times funnier with those sound effects emphasizing the power of each swat. WHAM!

Also I need that soundtrack ASAP.

I've never seen JoJo. is there anything you can tell me that would get me into it? I've been hesitant because hype usually ruins things. :?

Me, too. It's amazing.

Had I but the world and time, I'd so do Saitama's training regimen.

The most recent episode of OPM (episode 4) was godly. Especially Speed of Sound Sonic's theme music 8-)
