It's on Hulu or Netflix, I can't remember which, but I've already got so many things to watch it's gonna have to wait.

I have been reading the manga though and it's pretty crazy if season 2 is anything like it. I can not recommend the new Shonen Jump app enough to catch up on it

One Punch Man didn't capture me after three or so episodes.  I suspect it was partly the art style that turned me off, as I had the same reaction to Mob Psycho 100 (from the same mangaka) whose story showed more promise in my mind.

I couldn't get into it, either, but for me it was the entire premise that fell flat. The anime/superhero tropes that it is satirizing aren't entertaining on their own, so pointing out "look how ridiculous those are" is just not funny to me.

And the show, from what I understand and the first few episodes I watched, has a built-in promise that there will never be any tension or meaningful conflict.
