I just realized Opening showed a lot of stuff that never was in the series.
Is it usual for anime openings to do so?
No most series spoil the entire cast with their openings. Also powers, weapons, locations, etc. General rule of thumb I have is to skip the opening when watching something for the first time.

This is literally the most pleb thing that's ever been posted on /a/, why do you even watch anime?
I thought it was clear the entire OP's point was to show Saitama be pit against big scary monsters to show how powerful he is, not "huurrrr ALL this is gonna be in the show look forward to it"
are people retarded
>ONE's depiction of Saitama was originally some stupid looking bald dude in a stupid costume, and other heroes has some equally silly thing to them but they're all cooler than Saitama in terms of looks
>Murata tried to keep ONE's vision by making Saitama silly looking and make everyone else 100x cooler
>anime completely disregards this by making Saitama in the OP a muscular badass who beats the shit out of everything
>tfw you miss the point of the OP
It's meant to look badass because that's literally the joke.
well, it is to show how powerful it is, but notice it always shows him in his serious look, muscle bound and heroic. It's used to contrast how Saitama usually is, that is dopey looking and lazy.
it's poorly communicated when people who's never even read the manga (see 90% of the people who watched the anime) thinks this is how Saitama is presented.
it's evident even in /a/ when over half the fucking Saitama vs X threads feature Saitama's serious face or some other badass pose
>it's evident even in /a/ when over half the fucking Saitama vs X threads feature Saitama's serious face or some other badass pose
But that's wrong, half of the Saitama pics on /a/ feature his smug face.
My one complaint about the anime is that it came off as more of an action series than the manga which are clearly gag series.
However, I interpreted both the OP and ED as intentionally dissonant with the tone of the show, and they didn't bother me at all.
Even if they miss it though, they're probably too fucking stupid to tell that it is at all different from his actual style. Either way it doesn't matter and isn't poorly communicated.
Why hasn't /a/ drawn Cruel Angel's Thesis yet?
10 frames per person or something.
I am in favor of this practice as long as it brings us brilliant things like this.
At least he died with a smile on his face
I'm so pleb I don't even watch trailers.
Do you know how much more amazing Seven Deadly Sins is when you have no clue who wrath is? When it's actually a "reveal"?
I watched the trailers after seeing the series and all I could think I was I dodged a bullet not seeing any media for it.
Am I the only one who thinks the OP song is actually really bad?
Nah. It's ONLY ridiculous in contrast to how Saitama is, but it also actually shows off the reality of how incredible Saitama's strength and feats are.
Why are people incapable of recognizing that something can be seen in multiple ways? Not JUST to have a different interpretation, but because it was meant to be multifaceted.
It's nice in retrospect when watching an original series to spot the event clearly referenced in the OP, but after a while you just start to know the plot developments ahead of time simply because they use the same symbolism or directly reference shit. Same goes for the translation of songs, that shit can spoil it as well.
When watching an adaption of something you've already read it's not as big a deal. There's also some sort of cultural difference with how they reveal spoilers, they just don't fucking seem to care, particularly in anime.
I just don't like having the series spoiled because I watched a 90 second clip. Evolving or completely irrelevant scenes are the best.
