Yeah, I know the anime for One Punch Man has recently been released. Yet, from the first moment I saw the show I knew Saitama was going to be one of my favorites. I think Genos is amazing too, but Saitama is everything I want in a superhero character.
Though, why does that make Saitama my favorite male anime character ever? There's definitely many reasons as to why I chose him. Yet, strength didn't happen to be one of them. Saitama's strength is completely awesome and I love it. But if it came down to just strength there are many other male characters who could've easily been my favorite till now.
It's his personality overall. he's caring/uncaring, funny, an a bit weird. Also, the way his boss mode side clashes with his cartoonish side makes him even more enjoyable to watch. Especially, when you're waiting to see what will happen next.
Here's the opening to One Punch Man. This is an anime I would recommend to anyone who likes action-comedy. Also, here's the description for the show. "In this new action-comedy, everything about a young man named Saitama screams "AVERAGE," from his lifeless expression, to his bald head, to his unimpressive physique. However, this average-looking fellow doesn't have your average problem... He's actually a superhero that's looking for tough opponents! The problem is, every time he finds a promising candidate he beats the snot out of them in one punch. Can Saitama finally find an evil villain strong enough to challenge him? Follow Saitama through his hilarious romps as he searches for new bad guys to challenge! (Source: VIZ Media)" Thanks for stopping by. ^_^
