    Dude, I nearly teared up with that ending there. Thankfully, I’m not in need of this kind of motivation anywhere near as much as I once was, thanks to good friends and over a year of therapy, but I was there at one point, and even now it’s still something incredibly uplifting to hear, and I’m sure there’s tons of people out there that will also be helped by this message. Thank you.

    Great quality of production but please either talk about more content or end the video after 5 minutes. It was fairly obvious that the video was just streched out. You just kept repeating yourself.

    One Punch Man has Mumen Rider and that’s why it is good…

    In the beginning of your video… great valid point to make, not such a great set of choices of which movies to draw clips from to illustrate it. Civil War, Rogue One? Just to pick out a couple of examples. They are unusually refreshing non-ordinary storytelling, when compared to the overdone big budget norm.

    I want to see saitama fighting someone who wont die by just brutal strength…Someone whom even saitama cant defeat…
    SPOILERS;-As said by KING(while playing RPG game) a character,no matter how high its level is, cannot defeat another character which is a rival to it by nature …

    I’m watching Overlord for the same reason. Guild leader basically reaches the peak of his character’s magical abilities then just… keeps playing the game in a new reality.

    On top of the psychological conflitct, I think the biggest expectations subversion we experience in this anime is the fact that the Monsters, the Bosses, the Evil Creatures…the Antagonists are the ones that have to go through an hero cycle to beat the protagonist.

    Take Garou for instance, he’s the self-proclaimed human-monster, he’s on an anti-hero hunt.
    Still, while doing so, he’s going through the most classical of hero’s journey.

    It’s incredible how a story that seems destined to fail just by the premises has turned out so good and so well done, almost unintentionally

    I think you missed a key point here. The show is less about Saitama and more about the struggles of the supporting characters. He’s a God while the rest of the heroes are struggling demi-gods. They’re battles are incredible because there are real stakes to their fights. They aren’t invincible and the enemies they face are overwhelmingly powerful. As the reader/viewer you know that Saitama will come in and save the day eventually you just don’t know when. So the tension you feel for the lives of the supporting characters is what’s truly compelling. Especially when they defeat an opponent without Saitama’s help.

    Saitama’s struggle with being so powerful isn’t nearly enough to make up for the show being so predictable and him as a character being so unrelatable. A story about a guy so strong that he never loses is boring as all hell. If the moral of the show was to never give up doing what you love no matter what, then the show in my opinion would be good. But it’s not so in my opinion the show isn’t good and it’s popularity is simply due to the bandwagon mentality

    Subverted expectation- If we get to see a villain not dying by Saitama’s first punch, we are going to lose our shit.
    And by the way, It’s really refreshing not seeing an introverted kid as protagonist and wait 100 episodes to see him do something relevant.

    One Punch Man is the GOAT show to me and it hasn’t even peaked yet. It managed to get to One Piece level for me in mere 3 years and God knows I like One Piece really really much. Even more than childhood cult DBZ.

    Man, hearing about believing in yourself makes me feel bad now. Before June 26th of this year I’d say I was at my peak, I had crossed thresholds and became a happy person witha goals and dreams. After the event of that day I have become simply nothing at all, all the enthusiasm is like a fossil, getting up in the morning is all the more challenging, my memory for tests and homework has vanished, the eyes that used to radiate warmth and joy are now empty and sometimes full of hatred. If I go to train I can remember a bit of the person I once was, but the memories of the event and following s**it storm feel like a leech draining my energy and leaving me with tiredness and not wanting to keep going. I think that when I finish school I’ll have nothing more to keep me up everyday, no obligations, so my life may end by my hand, I already tried to do it on September 1st with a knife to my exterior yugular and came to the conclusion "not gonna work, look at these testimonies" so I’ll just go and find a high place to drop off of. That or I’ll just keep dragging myself around. Damnit.

    I feel like Saitama would watch this very well put together video and answer with a classic "OK".

    I don’t think that you’re right about OPM being original because the titular character is looking for an enemy which can challenge him. That’s actually a pretty well established trope. Off the top of my head, the most obvious example is Alucard from Hellsing, who feels exactly the same way as you characterise OPM feeling in this video.

    PS; this episode just gave me goosebump and i’m tearing up a little bit, so i’m gonna subscribe to your channel, keep up the good work and analysis, mate

    It works because its made by people who know what they are doing, in Hollywood stuff usually appeals to dumb sociopath Americans while in Japan its not that simple, things has to have some character to it, if you take the shittiest anime and compare it to everyday junk Hollywood garbage, you see that shit anime is not that shit anymore.

    One Punch Man is good, but the sad thing is its just more popular with American audience rather than Japanese even though it is successful in Japan, but SAO is more successful, why? Because SAO has tits, boring as fuck male character and yet its still better than all the Marvel movies combined.

    One Punch Man will never be one of a kind… Superman used to do this all the time, he even feels like he lives in a place filled with cardboard.

    In the beginning I could’ve thought of a better comparison… why is it that Skyrim is fun but Skyrim isn’t fun when you use console commands a lot.

  37. Fatlord27
    October 26, 2018 @ 6:53 am

    Sure, he might be physically invincible, but not mentally. The conflict is not whether or not he can defeat evil, it’s internal in Saitama; it’s about him figuring out why he’s really doing this. Whether if he’s really just doing this for fun, if he’s looking to challenge himself, or if he genuinely cares about humanity

    That, combined with the fact that it’s hilarious + good soundtrack + flashy animation = *mastapeece*

    Beside the amazing humor and massive fights, I think One Punch Man is a graphic masterpiece. It’s so perfectly drawn, with many different styles. It’s true art.

  41. dimsumboy22
    October 26, 2018 @ 6:57 am

    tbf, you skipped the fact the anime is actually based on the Murata artwork.
    a better analogy would be to show the one punch man art vs the now finished MOB psycho art which he improved his art 10 fold on.

    The mob psycho anime is based on his artwork rather than Murata’s

    > not talented

    i reccomend looking at the most recent chapters of ONE’s other manga Mob Psycho 100, he’s made quite the progress!

    that show also has a very interesting, subversive ways of handling the overpowered protagonist trope, it would make an interesting video : )

    The most frustrating thing for me in a show is where the mc doesn’t get enough recognition… And opm takes it to another level… It’s beyond incomprehensible.. What he needed most is recognition.. Very few people recognize him as a true hero.. He has no friend… (There are some potential people).. He doesn’t know anyone besides the hero association… People think he is a fraud.. And he accepted that fact for sake of other heroes… ( It’s more heartbreaking than jirraya or ace dying for me. )
