Characters that made my year – Genos (12 Days of Anime: Day 2)
Next up is a character that shot into my favourites almost immediately – Genos from One Punch Man!
I think it was rather predictable that I’d like One Punch Man – it’s an exceptionally well animated shounen series filled with weird & wonderful characters and just very entertaining to watch. Out of all the mental characters in the show I find myself liking Genos most – he’s all kinds of adorable really, even when turning himself into a massive flame-thrower.
From Genos’ introduction (complete with absurdly long origin story) to the way he currently follows Saitama round like a large metal puppy, there is just something very endearing about how sincere Genos is about everything he does. It works exceptionally well in contrast to Saitama’s deadpan, casual attitude. Keep being a sweetheart Genos!
