One Punch Man’s existential disaster is well our personal. The anime excels as a result of it embraces the absurdity of the style and revels in destroying tropes with each fist. Reversing the expectations of the style, we pray Saitama can lastly discover somebody to defeat him, and in that act, discover salvation from the tedium that threatens to crush his, and our, existence.
