Synopsis

The story takes place in a fictional metropolis known as City Z, in Japan. The city is invaded by strange monsters that appear mysteriously and cause numerous disasters to the population. Saitama is a powerful bald superhero who easily defeats monsters or other villains with a single punch. Because of this, Saitama has found his strength boring and is always trying to find more powerful rivals that can match him.

In his adventures he meets with new friends, enemies and his own disciple, the cyborg Genos, and joins the Association of Heroes to gain fame for all his actions and to prevent evil. Despite defeating many powerful enemies that the main heroes, even those of the Association of Heroes, are unable to defeat, Saitama is unable to get recognition of his actions in general. Most people discriminate against him because of his normal physical appearance and some accuse him of being a fake hero. Only a small number of individuals recognize his incredible talent and humility towards others.

Additional Voices

Notes

  • Christopher Sabat (a typically Dallas-based voice actor) voices Vaccine Man in Episode 1. This was done as a casting gag, as Vaccine Man bears a strong resemblance to Piccolo (also voiced by Sabat) from Dragon Ball Z.
