The problem I have is that in my younger years, shit like anime and comics were 'nerdy' and everyone expected you to be the antisocial, non-bathing, basement dwelling troglodyte. Now every asshole thinks they're awesome wearing a Deadpool shirt when they've likely never read anything expect like the few excerpt jokes people post on the internet.

And anime isn't exactly 'all unique' material. So many series are influenced and recycle ideas from other series like Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, Gundam, and Battle Royale to name a few.

Even One Punch Man pays homage to so many comic book heroes, especially Superman. While Saitama certainly isn't as godly as the American icon, he's certainly got his strength and invulnerability, but is refreshing with a more honest character personality and pathos.
