OnePunch-Man: it's got Tony Stark in it

This manga...

Image

It's based off a webcomic,

Image

The artist is the guy from Eyeshield 21,

Image

It gets the great mundane humor of Astro Fighter Sunred, combined with some of the best art currently in manga.

Image

More people need to know it exists.

The anime is a pretty good transition too.

The series is alright ,but in typical shonen manga fashion it just goes on for too long (forever).
The joke/idea/premise of the manga is bound to get lost somewhere by chapter 100 or so.

Honestly, i can't seem to understand all the rave about it. I think the anime is more well paced ,but then again i don't get the gimmick of series.
It's like the hottest mainstream anime at the moment, think of Attack on Titan/Kill la Kill/DBZ

The joke seems like it has enough legs for, like, a six-episode miniseries and not much else.

to both of y'all: so I thought, but the manga does not just follow saitama's story and is a lot more than him just punching things once. the manga focuses on the other characters (fubuki, hurricane, tony stark, mumen rider, etc.) more than on saitama

or just make assumptions to be contrarian for the sake of it, thats cool too

Thanks, I will.

If I make assumptions, it's because everyone I've heard compliment the show focuses on how the one punch man beats people with one punch and not these supposedly ancillary side-characters.

Also IDGAFlip about the one punch manga.

Well thats what the threads about now innit

The stories of those characters get more fleshed out after the final fight that's on the show, but you can see how the show is starting to introduce them if ya watch it

It's pretty easy, you just have to have opinions about things.

Manga discussion has no place in the anime forum, which I post in frequently and is very dear to me.
