One Punch Man Volume 1 Review

One Punch Man: Volume 1

By ONE, Yusuke Murata (illustrator) and John Terry (translator)

Check out my review of the other issues in this series here.

A manga series that packs quite the 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, he beats the snot out of ’em with one punch! Can Saitama 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?

Summary from Goodreads.

I have heard about this manga for a while and have finally gotten around to reading it.

The art style is quite good. I like the more blocky nature that it seems to be.

The storyline is quite funny! A superhero who has yet to find an opponent that can better him. Imagine getting bored of having a superpower! This is a good introduction into what is to come, I do hope that it does speed up a tad more in the coming volumes.

An enjoyable read that most will enjoy.
