    "If you're looking for an anime like One Punch Man, this is definitely one of the closest to that show. They both feature absurdly powerful protagonists that just want to live and celebrate the mundane but when the need calls for it can dish out a lot of ass-whooping."

    "Both have great action sequences and that master-pupil dynamic going on but what both shows do well is with humor. Both shows have plenty of comedy and aren't afraid of making fun of itself which makes for a fun and interesting watch."

    "Both have cool fight sequences and super powerful protagonists. What sets Jojo apart is that it has a clearly defined antagonist or rival if you will. One Punch Man's world is ever-changing and we never get to see anyone to truly challenge Saitama yet."

    "In the same way that a powerful being just wants to live a normal life, Saitama also does the same or at least, try to anyway. This show is much more humorous in nature than One Punch Man though."
