Andy and Bill are back at it with another review of One Punch Man! This time they dig into Season 2, Episode 10, “Justice Under Siege.” We get a Garou spotlight episode, and we couldn’t be happier! Join us on this journey to reach the end of Season 5 of our show. Season 6 is right around the corner, but before we get there, we have to find out whether Saitama, Genos, and the rest of the heroes save the day!
This week we’re back to just a single episode review, and what an episode it is! This is a freaking wild ride from beginning to end, and Bill and Andy struggle to make heads or tails of just what is going on at times. This week we come one step closer to finishing our journey through One Punch Man as we review Season 2, Episode 9, “The Troubles of the Strongest.”
To make up for our spotty releases as of late (and to not have 2 half hour episodes), we are coming at you with TWO reviews of Season 2 of One Punch Man! That includes Episode 7, “The Class S Heroes” and Episode 8, “The Resistance of the Strong.” There’s tons of fighting, in and out of the tournament arena. We find out who wins the martial arts tournament, and we also learn whether or not the heroes of this city can fend off the massive onslaught from an army of Monster Association cannon fodder. Toon in with us this week for twice the great reviews!
Hey, anime fans! We’re back with another review of One Punch Man. This time around Bill and Andy go back to the fighting tournament to talk about Season 2, Episode 6, which is titled “The Monster Uprising.” While the tournament winds on, the city is still under the attack of a ton of monsters. Can Genos, Fubuki, and the others save the day? Find out by listening to our recap and analysis!
We are moving through more One Punch Man yet again today! This time around we return to a city ravaged not only by the giant centipede monster, but also by a number of other monsters! What will our heroes do against such an immense and numerous threat? And will anyone figure out that Saitama is totally wearing a wig? Better listen to this week’s episode to find out as we review Season 2, Episode 5, “The Martial Arts Tournament.” Apologies for the audio quality once again this week.
Virus be damned! Andy and Bill are back with a brand new review of One Punch Man! This time around they tackle Season 2, Episode 4, “The Metal Bat.” In this episode, we get to know the S-Class hero, Metal Bat, who takes up a bodyguard job. Unfortunately, it’s far from a normal day at the office as he has to take on a series of monsters out to kidnap his client. Oh, and Saitama is getting ready for a fighting tournament. Check out our episode! Apologies for the audio quality this week and next week.

This is the build up to Saitama’s This is an episode of firsts. It’s the first time we’ve ever done a second season of an anime. It’s the first time we review a subtitled episode (though Andy did manage to find the dub online for the intro and outro clips). And it’s the first time in forever that we somehow missed a break card! We’re back with more One Punch Man reviews! This time around it’s Season 2, Episode 1…or is it just Episode 13? Who knows. Hulu sure doesn’t. Anyway, laugh with Andy and Bill as they talk through Season 2, Episode 1, “Return of the Hero.”
