My Hero Academia


My Hero Academia is listed (or ranked) 1 on the list The 13 Best Anime Like One-Punch Man

My Hero Academia might be the most obviously similar anime to One Punch Man, as they both revolve around a large cast of superheroes with unique abilities. Izuku Midoriya, the protagonist of My Hero Academia, starts off extremely underpowered, as contrasted with Saitama, who is virtually untouchable. Despite their differences in power, both Izuku and Saitama must prove themselves to their critical peers, who mock them for being unconventional heroes.

If you enjoy the bizarre humor and unique art style of One-Punch Man, perhaps consider a dive into Mob Psycho 100. Written by the same author as One-Puch, who simply goes by the name ONEMob Psycho 100 follows a boy with the nickname Mob, whose powerful psychic abilities threaten to overpower his body. Just like Saitama, Mob must live with the repercussions of his powers, though his are much more distressing than Saitama's.

Assassination Classroom is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list The 13 Best Anime Like One-Punch Man
Photo: Funimation

Assassination Classroom and One-Punch Man both revolve around an overpowered protagonist yearning for a challenge. While Saitama hopes his mentoring of Geno will provide him with the chance to fight someone stronger than him, the mysterious Koro-sensei trains a group of young assassins to kill him before the school year is up, or else he'll destroy Earth. Assassination Classroom shares the same humor of One-Punch Man, as they both love parodying popular anime series like Dragon Ball Z and Naruto.

Gintama


Gin Tama is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list The 13 Best Anime Like One-Punch Man

Gintama provides another shounen anime series rich in humor and eccentric characters. The protagonist, Gintoki, is extremely laid back and loves reading manga, much like Saitama in One-Punch Man. Much like OPM parodies other shounen anime series, Gintama also pokes fun at other anime such as One Piece and Dragon Ball Z.
