Fans of anime may be familiar with One-Punch Man. This action-adventure series follows a bald hero who can defeat any opponent with one punch – even muggers, gods and rogue meteors! But what exactly makes Saitama so powerful?
Spike Chunsoft’s One-Punch Man is based on the manga series of the same name and offers an ambitious combination of epic tales of superhuman strength with humorous comedy segments. It promises to be both epic and lighthearted at times.
The Story: In One-Punch Man’s world, Saitama, a bald hero named Saitama, is so powerful that he can defeat any opponent with one punch. Yet despite this feat of strength, he always feels lackluster when engaging in battle against evil; spending more time worrying whether he’ll get a supermarket cabbage discount than worrying about global war’s impending threat.
He’s quite particular when it comes to what he eats, as evidenced by his love of bananas and desire to cook dinner using leaves from monsters he’s defeated. In fact, he goes so far as to accuse a waitress of taking a bite out of one of his fries!
Character development in the anime is notable for its humorous take on superhero culture and how they manage their public image. Saitama, a self-proclaimed hero, rarely receives credit for his efforts and often faces accusations of cheating in competitions.
His girlfriend Tatsumaki is also a hero and helps him out when needed. While she adds some comic relief to the show, her role in the main plot doesn’t quite measure up to that of Saitama or other characters.
One-Punch Man stands out among other anime by not taking itself too seriously. It celebrates the absurdity of superheroes without fearing to offend non-fans.
The Game: In One-Punch Man, you play as a customized avatar who has been saved from near death by the hero himself. After being saved, you join the Hero Association and begin working your way up the ranks by completing missions, running fetch quests and interacting with named characters from the comic universe to earn points that will allow you to progress to the next level.
To build the ideal team, you’ll need to mix and match different heroes. Take into account their roles, stats, and abilities in order to increase your chances of victory.
If you’re new to fighting games, this might seem like a straightforward title but the gameplay is surprisingly deep. It’s like an anime Forrest Gump in that you must put in effort in order to progress and reach the top.
The anime’s humorous tone sets it apart from other action-adventure titles, and that’s likely what will keep you coming back for more. You must become familiar with its pacing and characters to fully enjoy it, but if you’re willing to persevere, you’ll end up with an enjoyable title that won’t let you down.
