When monsters mysteriously begin to appear all over Z-City, the strongest heroes must rise in order to defeat them. The strongest hero of all is a man named Saitama, who is able to knock out the deadliest of monsters with one punch! — Elizabeth Bryan

A laugh-out-loud manga comedy that pokes fun of any superhero story, origin situation, battle anything, while remaining utterly serious. Staring bored, overpowered, self named hero Saitama. You might want some privacy for this one, you will end up braying like a donkey. — Firdous Madany


Life gets pretty boring when you can beat the snot out of any villain with just one punch.

Nothing about Saitama passes the eyeball test when it comes to superheroes, from his lifeless expression to his bald head to his unimpressive physique. However, this average-looking guy has a not-so-average problem—he just can’t seem to find an opponent strong enough to take on!

Every time a promising villain appears, Saitama beats the snot out of ’em with one punch! Can he finally find an opponent who can go toe-to-toe with him and give his life some meaning? Or is he doomed to a life of superpowered boredom?
