‘One Punch Man’ is one of the best anime series ever. The show has a total of 12 episodes with each episode being around 24 minutes in length. It is highly entertaining and is the best superhero genre anime, in my opinion. The show revolves around Saitama who is a hero for fun. Saitama trains hard and becomes so strong that now he is able to destroy any enemy with just a single punch. This frustrates him a lot since he cannot enjoy his fights. With all that said, here’s the list of top ‘One Punch Man’ episodes. Don’t forget to mention your favorite episode in the comments.
6. Episode 10, Unparalleled Peril
Episode 10 is the one where we see the Dark Matter Thieves for the first time. They are a group of aliens who arrive on Earth boarding a spaceship which starts destroying city A and causes some heavy casualties. In the beginning of the episode, we see all the S-class heroes assembling at the headquarters to discuss a matter of urgency. Despite being a class B hero, Saitama is present at the meeting after Bang requests him to come too. There, the heroes learn that an imminent danger is just lurking around the corner. They also learn that Madam Shibabawa, who was a great seer, is dead now. Her last prediction talked of Earth’s imminent doom. The heroes begin showing genuine concern as the seer’s prophecy are 100 percent true.
What is funny, though, is that Madam Shibabawa is not able to predict her own death and chokes on a pill. Stitch is the one to assemble the heroes for the meeting. He says that they have around six months to prepare. As soon as he says it, they are attacked by the Skyfolk. But their attack does not last long as Melzargard, a member of Dark Matter Thieves, slays them quickly. The spaceship of his group starts destroying city A. It seems as if the peril that Shibabawa mentions in her prediction is already here. The heroes engage with Melzargard and learn that cannot be defeated so easily as he seems to have regenerative capabilities.
Another group of heroes tries to find a way to destroy the spaceship. Meanwhile, Saitama makes his way towards the ship, dodging enemy projectiles in the process. He is finally able to enter the ship and starts destroying it from the inside. There, he encounters one of the alien guards by the name of Groribas. The fight is brief as Saitama defeats him with a single punch. Genos, along with other heroes, discusses various strategies on how to bring down the ship. He then notices that Saitama is already inside the ship. In the last scene, we get to see Boros sitting on his throne.
5. Episode 7, The Ultimate Disciple
