In today’s article, we are bringing you the complete One Punch Man order of watching and we will also separately include a One Punch Man filler list so that you know which episodes are important, and which ones you can skip if you want.
One-Punch Man is a Japanese superhero franchise created by the artist ONE (Yusuke Murata). With an incredible punch, the hero Saitama can defeat any opponent, but after becoming bored of the lack of challenge due to the strength of his arm, he seeks out a worthy opponent. In early 2009, ONE wrote the original version of the Webcomic.
Madhouse produced an anime adaptation of the manga that aired in Japan from October to December 2015. In April and July of 2019, a second season was broadcast, produced by J.C.Staff. In the United States, the series debuted in July 2016 on Adult Swim’s Toonami programming block under the license of Viz Media. October 2019 marked the premiere of the second season. We still have no confirmation about One Punch Man season 3, but it is very likely it will happen.
So without further ado, let’s first check out how many and which fillers does One Punch Man has (if it has it at all), and then we are off to a One Punch Man order of watching the anime.
One Punch Man Filler List
One Punch Man currently has no filler episodes. It has 24 episodes from 2015 and 0% filler episodes, at least for now.
This is a pretty strange occurrence among anime TV shows, but still, even though One Punch Man has started showing in 2015, it has only two seasons and 24 episodes total. So, it still has time to build its filler episodes.
One Punch Man Order of Watching
One Punch Man has a pretty straightforward order of watching with only its two seasons and without fillers. You should be watching it by the episode release date.

Are One Punch Man OVA Worth Watching?
Without a doubt! One Punch Man OVAs develop characters even more by following events that occur between episodes. It even has a special that chronicles how Saitama became that cape-wearing bald superhero we know and love (it really tells the story about how Saitama became this superhero).
Are One Punch Man OVAs Cannon?
Definitely. The entirety of One Punch Man can be seen as canon, as it is written by ONE (Yusuke Murata), they fit nicely into the story, and don’t conflict with anything that we already know.
