Why do people believe this?
He doesn’t pull random stuff out of nowhere he has consistent powers sure those powers don’t have a defined limit but he doesn’t just do anything that makes things funny like pulling a machine gun out of his head.
An argument I regularly hear is that he’s funny and theirs a lot of jokes with him and how he’s drawn funny sometimes which makes me think that the people who make these arguments have never watched much anime. Almost every anime does this, almost every anime makes their character look funny once in a while.
Another argument is that he’s called one punch man and that his premise is off a man who defeats everything in one punch(even though that’s not a fact and that’s what you think the premise is and my premise is that the actual premise of the show and it has to do more with the fact that it’s funny because he’s so strong that no one can challenge him where he lives and that makes him bored).
First off just because he’s called that by the author either in the manga or not doesn’t mean you take it literally as Danny from game of thrones is called the Mother of Dragons even though technically she’s more of a trainer of dragons and didn’t give birth to them literally.
Secondly he doesn’t even follow his own premise of one punching everything and I know the argument is that he holds back but let me ask you
Why does that matter? Just because he holds back doesn’t invalidate the fact that he’s not following his own(your) premise of the show.
The last argument that I’ll make is that the story doesn’t really seem much like a gag story, the characters have character development and their own problems and the plot doesn’t just revolve around the main character, heck a lot of the attention goes to the hero association and what’s happening with them majority of the time. Whenever saitama appears he’s usually shown as strong or just doing ordinary things, it isn’t always a joke with him, heck whenever he’s around others they usually also become part of some joke about their character flaw and trying to resolve those flaws.
