Episode #4: One Punch Man “The Strongest Man”

One Punch Man pilot episode “The Strongest Man”

The podcast with nothing much ado about aircrafts, and potentially everything ado with first episodes of a filmic series. Join us today as we cast judgement and determine if the meta anime phenomenon One Punch Man will be hoisted, or not hoisted: that is the question!

Cheat Sheet:

  • Petard = bomb
  • Hoist a pilot = bad episode
  • Not hoist a pilot = good episode

Show Notes

{1:05} Background: Neither Drew nor Jimbo had watched much of One Punch Man (OPM). Jimbo picked OPM because he has been mighty fascinated with Saitama ever since he watched a random youtube video about OPM. When Drew wasn’t busy watching Buffy, he received a westernized toonami anime background from the Cartoon Network.

{3:15} Episode Summary

{5:05} High Points: Almost everything about this pilot! Dry humor; satire; Crabman; Kid with the big chin…

{12:12} Low Points: Not much! Androcentric (male), Choppy plot.

Crabman Award: Hands down! Crablante .

{17:40} MVPs: The character Saitama, and the theme song “The Hero”

{20:36} Dangling Threads of Interest: Saitama’s mindset/philosophy; existentialism; hero effectiveness: micro vs macro; star fish defense; education and ZPD

{32:30} Watch or Rewatch: continue watching consensus.

{34:01} To Hoist or Not to Hoist?: The pilot episode “The Strongest Man” was an absolute not hoist!

{34:46} Petardar: (recommendations)

{37:49} Next Week: Glee

{38:35} Talking Shop: Frasier/Kelsey Grammar, and show
