One-Punch Man Summary
The story centers on the nondescript twenty-something bald guy who is capable of defeating any rival using just one punch. His name is Saitama, and he lives Z-City, a town on the planet similar to our Earth. Alike in other anime of the genre, hordes of various monsters regularly attack the citizens of Z-City. As a result, the squads of superheroes are trying to restore order and protect the world against numerous threats.
However, due to his omnipotence and invincibility, he is dying of boredom. Saitama can't find an appropriate rival who will have at least a chance to resist him. In fact, he dreamt of becoming a superhero since childhood. But he couldn't even imagine that this is so easy to defeat the monsters. Thus, his job turned into a routine.
But one day, he learns about the Hero Association thanks to a cyborg named Genos. This institution allows him to become a legitimate fighter with evil and provides him some salary as well. Here Saitama meets other superheroes.
