    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.

  • The Disastrous Life Of Saiki K.

    The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. follows a similar plot as One-Punch Man, as they both focus on overpowered characters who bored by their own omnipotence. Instead of superheroes, The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. explores the realm of psychokinesis. Kusuo Saiki, the young and gifted psychic, wants to live a normal life, but his powers keep attracting one oddball character after another.

  • My Hero Academia

    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.

  • Assassination Classroom

    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 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.

  • The Devil Is A Part-Timer!

    Much like One Punch Man, The Devil is a Part-Timer! incorporates the mundane and the supernatural in a quirky fashion. In contrast to Saitama's boredom of his superhero lifestyle, the Demon Lord Satan in The Devil is a Part Timer! takes his normal human job as a fast food worker way too seriously. Both shows feature the same wacky atmosphere and lead characters dissatisfied by the world's inability to keep up with their pace.
