One-Punch Man episode 10 review
The title of this post is a joke. There's a Facebook page where a person rates girls on an A to F scale. Anytime someone says that a girl is "S-rank," there's a certain word used to describe that letter "S" that can't be repeated here.
And so it is with these S-rank heroes. They all gather together to face an opponent that is more powerful than you can possibly imagine. Lots of these guys seem very interesting as characters, but unfortunately most of them only get a couple of seconds of screen time. Saitama also shows up for the S-rank meeting and wants some tea.
The most interesting character is the Tornado character. She has some spunk and definitely seems like someone you don't want to mess with. It was interesting to actually see a female hero, which was sorely missing for some time.
Now Saitama and the other heroes have to face these aliens. What's probably going to happen is that the aliens will destroy lots of stuff, the other heroes will fail, Saitama will make a few jokes, then Saitama will defeat the aliens. I hope I'm wrong, though. It would be a shame for One-Punch Man to fall into the same old pattern.
In the meantime, One-Punch Man escapes this week with an ever-so-slightly above average episode that probably deserves 2.25 stars, but I don't do quarter-stars.
Episode rating (out of four stars): **½
