Saitama does not let his great power build an ego or get to his head. He does not chase vanity or material gains.
The apartment is small and simple in a part of town that has been abandoned. Saitama could get a much larger apartment, especially in the abandoned area where he could make an entire building his headquarters, but instead he chooses simplicity and humility.
He never seeks adoration choosing instead simple pleasures like watering plants and chasing bargains at the supermarket.
This is power at its most complete. A humility and respect for the power and responsibility to protect city z while at the same time avoiding the trappings of power and idolatry.
Look how he responds to people attacking him by understanding their motives before they attack. This shows an enormous level of psychic power.
Even the less than heroic heroes seeking ranks and levels while chasing vanity fall to Saitama without much effort. Other heroes are concerned about their rankings and groups.
Saitama defends the city against creatures from the planet who believe that humans have wasted the resources and seek revenge among others. The villains are so focused on power and destruction they cannot defend themselves against a person with true power.
Go back to the fight with Carnage Kabuto when he jumped away. Carnage Kabuto knew that if he made that move he would have been killed yet he could not comprehend how a being could leave himself so wide open.
Even when Carnage Kabuto strikes Saitama he is more concerned with missing bargain day at the supermarket.
That is true power and enlightenment. The power to understand and control his power yet remain humble at the same time.
It is this humility that allows him to be so strong and dodge most attacks with ease while defending city z.
There are so many levels here. Even the artwork has Saitama drawn in a very basic and simplistic form showing his simple life and humility.
With the Hero Association in the picture, the story expands to include a whole bunch more characters; and cliques, rivalries and politics begin to complicate Saitama's heretofore relatively uncomplicated life. We get to see other heroes in action, and sit in on a Hero Association management conclave.
Yusuke Murata and his staff turn in the expected splendiferous art job; page 48, Genos deploying his full armament in a sparring match with Saitama, pages 126-140, the engagement between Golden Ball, Spring Mustachio, and the monster "Kombu Infinity" are just a couple of the many highlights.
Sonic the strange ninja returns to vex Saitama, and a couple of bonus episodes fill out the book, with the last one featuring a striving member of the Blizzard Bunch, a B-class hero sub-association, who gains new inspiration from an encounter with One-Punch Man (after being thoroughly put down by S-Class Terrible Tornado, a sharp-tongued little girl with powerful psychokinetic abilities and a most hostile attitude).
Awesomely excellently entertaining. Many stars.
There is a lot of bonus material this volume, which is still enjoyable. We get a little backstory on Saitama--you can't help but route and like this character even though he always defeats his oppenents. I still wonder how ONE does it...how he made a extremely overpowered character so likeable because I tend to hate those types of characters. Every side character is wonderful and my favorite villain of the series, Sonic (who is a male, by the way) is on the cover.
Great and I can't wait to get Vol. 4.
