What Is The Plot Of The Series?

One punch Man tells the story of Saitama, a superhero who can defeat any opponent with the single punch but seeks to find a worthy opponent after growing bored by lack of challenge in his fight against evil. Saitama soon ventures in the vengeance of one of his disciples Genos, who is Cyborg and want to take revenge from another cyborg who slaughtered his whole family and home town. Here we have the concepts of power and class, well we won’t discuss the furthers as it won’t be right for you to get the perception of the show’s essence. But we have a lethargic plot of fights and survivor that may be tedious for some of us to watch.

What Made The Show unenthusiastic?

Well, anime was not able to maintain the fanbase of the comic. The series is negatively claimed and is degraded in terms of story, animation and many other aspects. Season one was filled with sharp, witty crispy and entertaining plot. But it exaggeratedly defines its protagonist and yet the same plotline for each section makes it even more irksome to watch.

Also, graphics and animation have seen major decrements in the second season. Which is apprehensive for the viewers as the first season had some quality graphic content.
