Both series have a similar style and humour, featuring a protagonist with super powers that are far beyond 'strong'.

They both are parodies about superheros' everyday lives.

i don't have the words to explain the magnificence of the series!! I love the character and how he represents an average person but with extraordinary power. Saitama is more to close to my heart than any other anime character i have seen so far. I felt so bad when he had to made himself the bad guy for the sake of the other heroes.... I immediately recalled the quote from The Dark Knight -"He's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight."
I think that that's what Saitama is - a true knight who will protect the earth even if the stupid easily manipulated public doesn't want him as a savior.
In short - Saitama is awesome!!

I am a person who never goes along with parody(parodies mostly looks stupid to me).. and I must say I really disliked the first 2 episodes.. (they had more gore and ugly and I couldn't stand them much). However- strangely even for myself I continued watching and I found myself laughing at it. And so after that I am here today and I watch an almost-regular-shoujo - and I realize that I miss it again- but- it ended already ;(

Second season?

OPM is not really wow in terms of story or character development, but bc Saitama is such a bland guy who becomes a superhero just for fun and it jst makes you want to watch more, makes you want to watch Saitama kick butt hahaha

quite enjoyable in a weird way imo
