One Punch Man is an ONE’s web-comic manga series that has received much attention in 2012 and remake by Yusuke Murata in Shonen Jump. His manga immediately got a lot of attention after the remake into a better version. Spring 2015, the manga finally released anime adaptation of his 12 episodes that worked by Studio Madhouse. I’m not too fond of the manga and anime especially the fanbase which is more cancer for me. This anime is just an inappropriate mediocre compared to other anime. Therefore, this anime is very popular among the ‘normies’ like Naruto or Dragon Ball. Without further ado, let’s review this anime.

Saitama Genos

“One Punch Man,” tells about an ordinary people who aspire to be a hero named Saitama (Makoto Furukawa) train hard for 2 years and his efforts are not in vain. Unlike the other superheroes, Saitama felt an incredibly powerful force inside his body, becoming strong and very stocky even though his looks looked like an ordinary person. However, his strength made him a bored hero who always defeated his enemy with just one hit.

So, the point in this anime is a hero who is too strong and just defeats his enemy one hit. For the aspect of the story, I’m not too concerned about it because the arrangement of the existing story in the anime is very different when compared to anime or another superhero movie. For the whole story, it looks good and very interesting to watch. But somehow, I just feel annoying it towards the story and character named Saitama. Saitama is treated like someone who looks as if he is a bad guy by the citizen in the city, and that he is always insulted by other superheroes because of his unfavorable performances. Honestly, I’ve never read the manga at all and just watched the anime. So, for the whole story also indeed I feel very annoyed with this anime.

Saitama OPM

What’s worse, I just don’t like the fanbase and weeaboo on the internet. Is it possible they just watch the One Punch Man or they are just a bunch of stupid people there? In my opinion, his fanbase is even worse than Rick & Morty and Undertale. These normies somehow they always just compare this Saitama character with the characters that exist in the other anime. What the fuck are you doing? Something similar like this I’ve seen when the normies of Sword Art Online compare Kirito with Guts from Berserk. Maybe they did it just for the sarcasm but I was also a bit fed up because these normies were always acting sober. I just want to say in front of them “Dude, stop watching anime. There are lots of anime and movies you can watch besides this shit. Stop being the normies, dude. That sucks.” In essence, his fanbase is indeed very cancer for me.

Saitama Poker Face

But, the artwork is great that worked by Yusuke Murata. The art was great for the anime two years ago. Moreover, I saw some of the manga sheets and it was very good and very amazing to read. In addition, One Punch Man sometimes presents a light humor, sometimes a dark comedy, and sometimes a very stunning action with very serious circumstances. Although I don’t like One Punch Man, this anime also has its own charm. One Punch Man has a very fantasy impression for someone who is still new to anime. And for this anime Opening, ‘THE HERO !!’ by Jam Project is the song. This song is very overrated in that year and indeed this opening is very burning our emotions when watching this anime. And for the ending song, we will listen to a song with a sense of relief entitled ‘Hoshi yori Saki ni Mitsukete Ageru’ by Hiroko Moriguchi.


Overall, this anime is great to watch by people who are new or really like the action-comedy genre. Moreover, this anime is very thick for the size of anime superhero. From what I wrote earlier, this anime does have something that I don’t like. However, this anime is guaranteed not to be bored to watch.

DAY 10 – FAVORITE FIGHTER ANIME


Day 10 of 30 Day Anime Challenge. I don’t know what to say first but it’s time to discuss our topic this time titled, “Favorite Fighter Anime.”

Anime fighting is very cool to watch. Moreover, among men who love the anime action. Anime action is very much, call it mainstream anime such as Sword Art Online, Attack on Titan, My Hero Academia, One Punch Man, and the most important is Naruto, One Piece, and Dragon Ball. Among that anime, all people definitely know that anime. For some reason, I really like this kind of genre but I just don’t really like the anime like that. The anime that I watch isn’t much different from the others. Call it, “Durarara!!”

Durarara!!

“Durarara!!” Set in Tokyo’s downtown, Ikebukuro district. The city has its own uniqueness including rumors and warnings about anonymous gangs, and the most commonly encountered urban legend is “Black Rider,” a rider driving a jet black headless motorcycle around a city street.

Mikado Ryuugamine is always amazed by the beauty and life of that city. He was invited by his childhood friend to move to Tokyo. On his first day, he hopes to see the Black Rider. His request was granted on his first day. However, many interesting events that aren’t inferior to the Black Rider. Like the city residents who look ordinary itself, colorful of Ikebukuro, and unique people that he met.

I really like this anime because of the background story, the character traits are introduced in detail, and the visuals are very good. The plot is unlike other anime that using a nonlinear and character recognition is also introduced in their respective viewpoints.

Of all the characters that exist in this anime, Heiwajima Shizuo is a fighter (Maybe he isn’t exactly a fighter). From his childhood, he has got the power that can lift any object and throw it away. He’s emotional but always beat his enemy with just one punch. Shizuo has a rival named Orihara Izaya. When meeting, Shizuo and Orihara always fight. Shizuo also has a very caring person with his friends, especially with Ryuugamine. Since Shizuo is the strongest member in Dollars, Shizuo always helps the problems who facing Ryuugamine.


Okay, we have to end it this time. Indeed many other fighter anime that I like. But, if Durarara!! May not be exactly anime action. Although this anime many getting hated, I really like this anime.
