One-Punch Man

Hello everyone, Nick here one part of the machine that is the TakeToo podcast. I wanted to give a quick spoiler free review of this manga book that I recently picked up at my local comic book shop. As you may have noticed the name of this book is One-Punch Man ( The name says it all). I have to say it has been a long while since I have read any manga, and honestly it’s because manga got to weird for me with tons of emo high school age characters. So when this book was recommended to me from someone I know. I have to say that I was a little skeptical at first, but after reading a little bit, I have to admit this book was a breath of fresh air to me and for anyone who likes that old school manga style. Heck this was the opening page


 

I immediately got a Dragon Ball z vibe, which was cool to me. So the hero is a guy named Saitama a self proclaimed hero for fun. He is an unemployed business type who was trying to find a job and he stumbled into a situation where he needed to be a hero and save a kids life who pulled a prank on a monster. Then after a funny set of circumstances he became a hero and vowed to defeat his enemies with one punch.So the next 3 years he dedicated his life to training to do that very thing. So throughout this book he has different enemies to defeat and he is trying to fill a emotional hole in his life. That being said this book is quite humorous and imaginative.The art is pretty good and is the typical anime- manga style of art. I have to say if you are fan of old-school manga and anime, or a comic book reader who wants to try something new give One-Punch Man a shot.
