One Punch Man follows Saitama who was a bored working man who needed something different in his life. One day a crab looking monster comes to town and wants to harm a little boy with a butt chin for messing with him. Saitama saves the little boy by killing the monster.
After he defeats the monster he decides this is his calling to become a hero. He trains everyday by doing 100 push ups, 100 sit ups, 100 squats and runs 10km. He becomes the most powerful hero in the world. He can take out his opponents with one punch (hint the name). He becomes bored because he doesn’t have any real challenges out there to fight. Throughout this series you watch Saitama fighting and meeting many different characters.
Now I’ve heard and read many reviews on One Punch Man. Majority of the reviews were in favor of the show. There were many that just couldn’t get into it.
I loved the show. It was hilarious and the over the top characters made it more entertaining. The main character Saitama was phenomenal. That’s because I watched the sub version.
Now to the headline of this post, recently Toonami aired One Punch Man and it was dubbed. I could not stand it at all. Saitama’s voice was so annoying. He sounded more like a sarcastic prick than the funny duddy Japanese voice. Even the other characters voices dubbed was annoying. I could not find it funny. The Japanese voices was way more funnier. The jokes seemed to hit better with the Japanese voices.
This goes back to me telling people, I really like to watch anime Subbed rather than dubbed. Many times the voices they cast for dubbed are just not the same.
So if you haven’t watched this anime and you decide to, watch it in subbed. It is worth your while.
I guess this post was more of me venting.
Can’t wait for season 2 which I’ll be watching of course in sub.
Did you watch One Punch Man in subbed or dubbed?
