The licensed advertisement for One Punch Man: Strongest sucks!
One Punch Man was all rave among the anime fandom since its initial debut, and the same fad for the anime paved the way for the game, One Punch Man: The Strongest, a strategy role-playing mobile game. It is a seemingly popular game among anime fans and the mobile gaming community.
The game has over 5 million official downloads on Google Play Store and has been doing well for itself. Players can create teams out of the anime’s best characters, relive the show’s most memorable moments, and battle alongside Saitama to rule the battlefield.
Everything about the game might seem pretty straightforward, but the marketing of the game is anything but simple; the recently released video by them is a total cringe-fest!
The video is doing rounds on social media, and the fans are trolling it left and right, while some are perplexed that it is an official advertisement, and the rest are joking that this is Saitama’s live-action debut. And some are absolutely annoyed that Saitama was referred to as One Punch Man instead of his original name.

Japan and anime have a knack for making things weird, and many anime’s had their share of ‘weirdness,’ but this video tops the list. The video music advertisement is so offbeat, starting with Saitama’s personality; the video became a cringe for many. And frankly, no One Punch Man fan would expect Saitama to rap while auto-tuning. Here, Have a look for yourself.
Saitama often outpunches his opponents, but he’s always on the lookout for a fight worth his time; though not formidable, Saitama might itch to go toe-to-toe with music video makers. There might actually be only several seconds of the video that feature the gameplay; a poorly written, auto-tuned rap dominates the remainder of the music video.
Most marketers are probably looking to create a shock value through these advertisements, with higher shock value creating more viral videos, irrespective of how poor the content might be.

It seems like businesses will try anything to sell games in the saturated mobile gaming market. And if you have not watched the video, it is probably for the best; but if the daredevil side of yours urges you to watch the video, then get ready to have a headache even an aspirin won’t cure. The game on its own may be enjoyable for the fans, but the advertising is very disappointing; what are your thoughts on the newly released advertisement?
