So we ended the day shift with our usual TV slot. We watched Tybo the Carrot Man menace the crew of the Jupiter Two (wow, that show could drag). However, inspired by the fact it had just joined Netflix, I showed the first episode of One Punch Man. It’s hilarious, but you wonder how they will sustain a series that could be called One Joke Man. You do it, it turns out, the normal way; good writing, expanding the cast with great characters and inspired world building.
The first episode is the show at the most basic, however, with the hero, who increasingly bemoans how powerful he is, ‘fighting’ a series of crazy anime-inspired monsters who always pause to explain their crazy backstories. This guy became a monster because “I ate a lot of crab.” He’s my favorite one, unsurprisingly.
Seriously, check it out if you haven’t seen it.
