One Punch-Man REVIEWS
TheGreatMoof – Mar 30, 2021
The story of the OPM manga is a bit weak even upon slight interrogation. Good thing, then, that Yusuke Murata’s absolutely gorgeous art and ONE’s really imaginative characters and story pick up the slack. It’s an uncomplicated, fun, though occasionally inconsistent superhero story that at least has a lot more fun playing with its hero concepts than the last few decades of western superhero comics (DC and Marvel fans feel free to fight me irl).
Saitama himself is the most interesting take on the “Superman” archetype that I can recall. Shame, then, that he’s often left to run around in pointless side-plots or just be missing entirely until its his time to show up and deal with the threat du jour. It’s a joke that worked really well earlier on but has worn a bit thin as time has worn on during this nightmarishly long Monster Association arc, so I may retract some of this praise later on. For now, though, One Punch Man is still a good bit of fun.
