The seemingly ordinary and unimpressive Saitama has a rather
unique hobby: being a hero. In order to pursue his childhood
dream, he trained relentlessly for three years—and lost all of
his hair in the process. Now, Saitama is incredibly powerful, so
much so that no enemy is able to defeat him in battle. In fact,
all it takes to defeat evildoers with just one punch has led to
an unexpected problem—he is no longer able to enjoy the thrill
of battling and has become quite bored.
This all changes with the arrival of Genos, a 19-year-old cyborg,
who wishes to be Saitama's disciple after seeing what he is
capable of. Genos proposes that the two join the Hero
Association in order to become certified heroes that will be
recognized for their positive contributions to society, and
Saitama, shocked that no one knows who he is, quickly agrees.
And thus begins the story of One Punch Man, an action-comedy
that follows an eccentric individual who longs to fight strong
enemies that can hopefully give him the excitement he once felt
and just maybe, he'll become popular in the process.
