One-Punch Man follows Saitama, an unassociated hero, who hails from City Z and performs heroic deeds as a hobby. He has trained himself to the point of being able to defeat any enemy with a single punch, but his unmatched strength has left him with an overwhelming sense of boredom. Saitama becomes a reluctant mentor to Genos, a cyborg seeking revenge against another cyborg who killed his family and destroyed his hometown, after saving him from a monster. Saitama and Genos join the Hero Association in hopes of attaining notability.

Fans of One-Punch Man enjoy the series for its perfect blend of action, comedy, and drama.  You can watch the anime on Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, Crunchyroll, and Funimation.
