Creativity Meets Frugality: One-Punch Man Fan’s Saitama Cosplay on a Shoestring Budget

Have you ever wished that you could be as strong as Saitama? While the hero’s build may seem impossible but there’s a low-cost method to flawlessly cosplay One-Punch Man.

One-Punch-Man’s Saitama’s best-known feature is highlighted by a hilarious, cheap cosplay.

The photo posted by user Garoukaral posted to Reddit the image, shows a head that has been shaved and an appropriately placed light bulb that can recreate a scene from the manga in a perfect way. The cosplayer explained in a post that they’ve completed “some hard work” to create Saitama’s body but bemoaned the fact that “his body is way too perfect and unattainable.”

One-Punch Man is the best of the average Man

One-Punch Man, the ongoing manga first appeared on Shueisha’s Tonari no Young Jump website in June 2012. The manga has published 27 volumes of original content. Saitama starts the story as a regular Joe and discovers the joys associated with fighting monsters and villains. Even though he’s not equipped with superpowers, he can still perform 100 push-ups, sit-ups, squats, and sit-ups every day and run 10km per day. One-Punch Man has sold over 30 million copies globally and was nominated for an Eisner Award in 2015.

One’s manga was animated. The show aired for two seasons, from October 2015 until July 2019. Studio Madhouse (The Vampire Dies in No Time) produced the first season, with J.C.Staff (The Executioner and Her Way Of Life) acting as the animator for Season 2. The series features Makoto Furukawa, Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury as Saitama. Although there was confirmation of an additional season, at the moment of writing, very little is known about the show.

The One-Punch Man fans are flexible in their imagination

Garoukaral’s low-budget cosplay isn’t the only comical piece of fan-made content to showcase Saitama in all his baldheaded beauty. In particular, an animated clip was uploaded by the Etoilec1 Animation YouTube channel towards the end of last season that showcases the hero fighting off against Dragon Ball’s battle-obsessed Son Goku. The brawl is full of action as well as references to both classic anime.

The fans of one have a lot more to look forward to than impressive cosplay or fan-made videos. In the spring of this year, the mangaka announced his new project — a new series titled Ka-Ra Hai — and the Anime News and Facts Twitter account posted the project’s cover which features a stone-faced youth facing an eroding cityscape. Ka-Ra Hai is a one-shot and will be released on the 27th of April.

VIZ Media distributes One’s manga series in North America, and the One-Punch Man anime adaptation is available to stream on Crunchyroll.
