What is it like to be the strongest person on the planet? If you answered that it would be a boring depressive state of existential fear, then you would empathize with the hero of One Punch Man.

One Punch Man is a superhero anime based on the manga of the same name that combines action, comedy, and satire, while also parodying many of the genre’s hallmarks. The concept seems ingeniously simple. The hero Saitama is so strong that he can defeat any opponent with a single blow. Unfortunately, he became dissatisfied as there was no one to challenge him.

One Punch Man’s existential crisis can easily be compared to our own. The anime is excellent because it embraces the absurdity of the genre and revels in breaking stereotypes with every fist. Against the genre’s expectations, we pray that Saitama can finally find someone to beat him, and in doing so, find salvation from the boredom that threatens to destroy his and our existence.
