One Punch Man Till Now
The first season was very popular and it was recognized for standing out in the Shounen genre with its simplistic and unorthodox plot. Saitama, a regular Japanese salaryman turns into the world’s strongest Superhero and becoming a hero for fun. His training to become the strongest has cost him and it’s not just his hair. His foes are knocked down in just a single punch and this has made it really boring for Saitama. He is a mentor to Genos, a cybernetical being who looks to Saitama to gain the strength that he has. Saitama joins the Hero Association as a low tier hero but advances in ranks as his feats shock and amaze people.
Season 2 introduced the first anti-hero of the series, Garou and character development of the side characters was observed. The protagonist and his sidekick meet many characters and also left the plot open to many plot points for the next season.
