If you’re a big Dragon Ball Z fan, One-Punch Man will definitely be up your alley. Created by a then-obscure author going by the moniker One, the parody webcomics series launched in 2009 and went viral not too long after. In 2012, the series was remade by professional illustrator Yusuke Murata and a television anime adaptation aired in Japan from October to December 2015. The story follows Saitama, a bald twenty-something who is the most absurdly powerful known hero alive so far. Able to defeat most villains in a single punch, Saitama constantly faces an existential crisis and is unable to gain any thrill from fighting. It is speculated that the second season of the series will launch sometime in mid-2017; however, official confirmation has yet to arrive.
