Everyone in the anime world has definitely known about One Punch Man at this point, and if you haven’t, you must be living under a rock.
The series tells about a bald man who can defeat anyone with just one punch has been the most discuss anime of the season, and probably of the year as a whole.
I have already praised One Punch Man as an anime that has come to revolutionize mainstream anime, this is the reason I finally decided that, for this review, I would take a several approaches to it (perhaps a dangerous one considering how many fanboys and fangirls this series has earned lately): did it live up to the hype or is it overrated?
Watch online One Punch Man Anime series only on moviebox app:
Initial first, this anime consists of only 12 episodes which are available on moviebox app or download cinema box. I have always say that you can’t truly clarify an on-going series with just 12 episodes.
I have not read the manga, nor the webcomic, but I have done my research and it appears that even though the story continues, there’s never any main plot going on and that the way pretty much always stays the similar: Saitama single punches everything.
That’s why, while I’m aware that I can’t conclude the total series based on 12 episodes, I’m going to take the anime as a representation of what the series is about.
Let’s talk publicity. As I’m writing this article, One Punch Man is #10 on MyAnimeList with a rating of 9.08.
This places the anime above other well-known series such as Cowboy Bebop, Death Note and various seasons of Gintama, Code Geass, and Fate/Zero. There’s not a single anime reviewer on Youtube who isn’t described OPM, and the manga sales have boosted both in Japan and the USA because of the anime release.
While still far from the mainstream recognition Attack on Titan has achieved, One Punch Man and Saitama have fast become a meme on the Internet, especially on Tumblr.
