    I became fond of the cast pretty quickly

    at first 'twas the art that enticed me, but the biggest reason I stayed with it was because of the humor

    I'm going to make this way more in depth than it needs to be, because it is fun to pretend people care about what I think.

    I kind of don't remember how it first appeared on my radar. But I read the synopsis (of the mango), and saw a few gifs of Genos Vs Saitama, and thought that I'd have to eventually check it out, but I wasn't in any rush.

    By chance on 4chan, I came across a One-Punch Man thread. The first image was a page showing three panels: First, was of Tornado, and it was showing her complaining and her rank, S-Class Rank 2. Then it showed Blast missing as Rank 1. Then I saw Saitama, and he was B-Class Rank 63. And I saw a post about something something hero association something.

    So I was all like "holy shit, so Saitama is already overpowered enough to defeat things with one punch, and then he found this hero ranking group and despite that he only ended up being B-rank. So there's all these other heroes even more powerful, and this Tornado chick must be Marvel-tier god-like."

    I legit thought that the manga just went crazy with overpowered characters, and like there was just simply an over-abundance of overpowered one-shot, hero main characters and Saitama was just another one of them from his own "story" if you will. Like it was playing on the fact that everyone writes their main character or at least one character, in their fiction as (eventually) overly powerful. And now we just have all these too stronk characters lying around. That's what I theorized from that one page. Holy shit.

    I thought it was just going to get super crazy as time went on and we'd have people punching universes and megaversal level beings by the end or something.

    Anyway, my retardation aside, I'm more than happy with what I got, when I finally found a chance to read it. Good shit.

    So excited for what is to come, as well.

    Friend recommended it and the first fight scene of the anime had me hooked.

    I then started reading the manga,

    I am still trying to wrap my head around the webcomic. I want to get into it...but the drawn style is still a little too funky for me.

    Ever since Eyeshield 21 ended I was keeping up with what Murata was doing, so I naturally came across OPM. The humor was on-point, and Murata's art is fantastic, so I kept reading since then. Eventually I read ONE's version just to see how the general story would unfold.

    It's an easy read with some funny moments (especially the parodies), an enjoyable cast and great art.

    I'm not hooked on it though.

    I searched for a strong, calm and collected hero and this popped up. Gave it a try. Couldn't stop reading ever since. One of the most hilarious manga ever.

    The simplcity of the story and of course the parody of generic shonen tropes.

    Most Shonen now take themselves to seriously and are overcomplicating things instad of keeping it short.

    Of course the abilities and characters as well

    Everything about this story is new and refreshing for the animeverse to me. It doesn't really seem to have many of the normal anime-troeps and I just love how powerful Saitama is, and is yet to be. I'm attracted to power, huge universe-busting power. It turns me on :hurr

    For the anime, I got hooked when I laughed my motherfucking ass off while looking at the Hero Association entry thingy. Then when I saw Saitama's punch split the clouds half-way across the world, I immediately jumped to the manga and have been checking for updates almost everyday since it has an irregular update schedule.

    It's such an amazing story and I haven't seen anything new since I first saw Mirai Nikki.

    Let an episode of Adventure Time play pass the ending credits, Hulu randomly decided to play One Punch Man next. Episode 1, opening scene.

    Never looked back.

    It just came out in manga form when I was in the hardcore weeb phase of my teens so of course I checked it out, read it for a while was great, then lost interest in everything, fast forward some years anime comes out, check it out, dope as ever and for me anime requires less effort so was all good in the hood.

    Its thinly veiled social commentary always got me. xD

    And the ingenuity of pulling off a story about an invincible hero that defies mainstream shonen logics.

    The anime was pretty much the reason i got into it. Madhouse did a great job on the first season.
