A 12 year old Saitama is dozing off during his middle school opening ceremony. Later, Saitama is relaxing in his bed watching a news report about an escaped Mysterious Being. Soon after, a teacher berates Saitama for not doing his homework, and telling him to meet him in the teachers lounge after school. After school ended, Saitama is accosted by the two delinquents known as Ripped Uniforms. The two drag Saitama out to the school yard and ask him for his money. Saitama refuses and then prepares to fight them, but gets easily beaten up and his money, 200 Yen, stolen.
Piggy Bancon shows up and takes all the money the two delinquents had, including Saitama's money, then runs away. Saitama gets up and chases after the monster. He catches it but gets knocked out for at least an hour. He then shows up at the teachers lounge, beaten and uniform torn apart, and gets shouted at. After leaving the teacher lounge, he started to question his future, if he will be able to live properly. The scene then jumps forward in time to a Saitama carrying a child on his shoulders on a snowy hill having just defeated a snowman monster. The child then asks if Saitama can beat up another snow monster, this one being significantly larger. At this point Saitama realizes he forgot to take out the trash.
During Saitama's training days where he was aiming to become a hero and had hair, Saitama saved an old lady from a mysterious being, and is rewarded with a year worth supply of candy. Afterwards he thinks of how he has taken down over 10 mysterious beings since he became a hero for a hobby, and how he is not doing it for the gratitude but it does help him, and even how he has been pushing his body to the limits.
At his 300th day of training, Saitama starts to feel an unbearable stinging pain. As he does his daily jogging, he is shown to move at high speed, and thinks of how he is gradually getting used to the training, and how it even gave him a boost in his physical fitness, showing what he can do by saving a child from a speeding car, crushing its hood in the process. Saitama disciplines the child about road safety, while people around are awing at his amazing feat.
Continuing his thought of his growth, Saitama claims that he is able to move of how he thought superheroes would but there is still one flaw to his training, the stinging pain, which became more frequent. A Mysterious Being then appears, boasting of how strong it is, and destroying a nearby vehicle, with rapid punches. Saitama approaches the being, but is unsure of his success, because of the pain. The mysterious being is revealed to be the Tiger level monster Personification Of A Light Pull Cord, who talks of how he has changed and claims to be a "God" level threat. Personification Of A Light Pull Cord then notices Saitama coming from behind to attack him, and as Saitama is distracted by his stinging pain, the monster punches him through a truck and into a wall. Saitama then thinks he is at his limits, but then is determined to continue as he has not came so far for nothing. Then before Saitama is even capable of returning to the fight, Personification Of A Light Pull Cord attacks him with his Pull Cord Rush. Saitama then appears to be down, and a tooth falls out of his mouth. Saitama then recuperates, much to Personification Of A Light Pull Cord's surprise. Feeling much better now that his decaying tooth is out (which was the origin of his stinging pain), Saitama beats Personification Of A Light Pull Cord.
Back to the original story line time. Saitama is seen leaving the bathroom, after seemingly brushing his teeth, and thinks of how maintaining healthy teeth prevents tooth decay.
A New Wind BlowsEdit
After Tatsumaki leaves the fight against the Demonic Fan with Fubuki, Saitama shows up and notices that the Demonic Fan is not dead, but instead reforming itself. The young member of the Blizzard Group attempts to stop Saitama from going to attack the Mysterious Being, but Saitama goes anyways and easily destroys the Demonic Fan. He patronizes the coward hero and his words reached the latter. Inspired by Saitama, the hero left the group and started to train himself in order to get stronger.
What Can't Be BoughtEdit
Saitama tries to withdraw money for drinks, but doesn't have enough money. When Bull-Bull robs the bank, Saitama stops him. When he returns home, he is surprised to see Genos bought a lot of the drink he wanted. He later makes Mumen Rider take the drinks.
A man is standing on a top of a high building, claiming he's about to jump off, after his life fell apart. Saitama is revealed to be sitting on the building right next to the man, eating his launch, who the man thinks is gonna try to stop him from jumping. As the man is trying to tell Saitama of the harshness of life, Saitama drops a piece of his salmon that he was saving to eat last, and runs down to catch it & then jumps back up to the roof of the building at immense speed. The man, in shock over seeing Saitama's speed, slips and falls, but Saitama catches him with his chopsticks, accidentally dropping his salmon instead. Saitama then encourages the man, who is grateful but storms out angrily. A monster then appears, and Saitama prepares to fight it.
Pork Cutlet BowlEditAs Saitama is out on a walk he's pulled over by two policemen looking over for any suspicious activity while on patrol and after some discussion, they take him in for questioning. Through further investigation into his background, the two lawmen come to the conclusion that Saitama may be the culprit behind a string of grisly assaults that have been occurring around their precinct. While admitting that an unpopular hero is no different than a part-timer, Saitama wonders what the police force's bone to pick with the Hero Association was before enjoying some pork cutlet offered by Chief Kuma. But as they were still conversing the real culprit behind the assault of officer appears; a demon level monster threat named Surprise-Attack Plum began attacking their establishment. With the disaster at hand, Chief Kuma had to be dragged away from the questioning room to observe the threat. Chief Kuma calls the Hero Association out of desperation. The derogatory second chief of operations for the Hero Association McCoy desired his opposing heckler to cast aside his and the face of the police, Saitama quickly snatched away Kuma's cellphone crushing it before he could voice his humility, clarifying that neither heroes nor cops do their job because people say "I beg you" and that the man on the other end of Kuma's phone wasn't any kind of hero.
Saitama offered to handle things on behalf of the men and women of the force and single-handily took out the monster. Outside the police station, where countless bystanders, the local news and a horde of heroes from Z-City Hero Association Headquarters sent by the duplicitous operator McCoy who leaked the information to the media and sent out every available upper-rank hero in order to further disgrace the police. McCoy's plan backfires when a lone police officer steps out of the building carrying out the downed creature on his back much to everyone's shock and awe as well as McCoy's chagrin. All the news channel sponsors present at the scene bustle their way into a police blockade, desperate to know who the mystery officer was that took out the monster attacking them at their office. Before anybody could thank him, Saitama had already left the scene, content with having helped the police save face.
After being called over to Bang's dojo, Saitama learns that Bang received some lobsters from his brother and needs someone to help him eat them. Genos complains about them being called out for something insignificant, but Saitama tells him to stop, saying that they're only helping a lonely old man with his food problem. After Charanko arrives with the vegetables, they start preparing the hotpot while talking about a recent dojo hunter that has been attacking other dojos. Saitama notices that there isn't any cabbage, interrupting the conversation, which annoys Charanko. After some quarrel, between Genos and Charanko, the latter challenges Genos to a match, but Bang tries to calm down the situation by saying that he will go buy the cabbage and asks Charanko to get along with the other two.
After preparing the hotpot, they hear a loud voice calling a challenge. Inside the dojo enter a large group of martial artists, claiming to be from the "Harsh Path Style" and asking for Bang, master of the "Flowing Water, Rock Smashing Fist", so that they may crush the dojo. After Charanko chastises them, saying that this dojo does not tolerate dojo hunting, the martial artists challenge him instead and start attacking him. Charanko tries to call for help, but Saitama and Genos are still cooking the hotpot and don't notice. After Charanko is kicked back and almost lands on the hotpot, Saitama catches him using his chopsticks, holding him up. One of the martial artists sees the lobster and moves to crush it saying that it is a luxury not fitting of a martial artist, at which point Genos launches across the room, saving it. When the group tries to attack, Genos knocks one of them threw the wall with a single push, leaving a hole in the wall. Saitama praises Genos, saying that while it might not be their job to subdue dojo hunters, these ones had crossed the line, at which point they try to attack him. Saitama quickly grabs and throws all of them using his chopsticks, leaving several more holes in the wall. After Bang arrives, he seems rather upset about the condition of the dojo and asks the last remaining member of the group if they had done it. When the guy tries to say it was Saitama and Genos, Bang angrily says that they are the ones picking a fight here. After the group leaves, Saitama is seen enthusiastically enjoying the hotpot.
