Life gets pretty boring when you can beat the snot out of any villain with just one punch.
Nothing about Saitama passes the eyeball test when it comes to superheroes, from his lifeless expression to his bald head to his unimpressive physique. However, this average-looking guy has a not-so-average problem—he just can’t seem to find an opponent strong enough to take on!
Despite just finishing a martial arts tournament and immediately dealing with the Monster Association invasion, Saitama is still so incredibly strong that he feels empty inside. King lectures him on how to live like a hero, but it doesn’t help. Meanwhile, servants of the Monster Association close in on Speed-o’-Sound Sonic!

Another good volume.
Here is why I rated the B&N Exclusive Edition as 3 stars... The Bad: Minus 1 star because what they described as a poster is not, in fact, a poster. A poster is something that is of decent size that I can hang on my wall. What it really is an art insert. It's the same size as the manga pages and also attached to/part of the book itself. I thought maybe I missed in the description somewhere if it said the size, but it does not. So an all around incorrect description of the extra. Deduct another star because see that gold sticker on the picture of the manga that says Barnes and Noble Exclusive Edition? Yeah, that is actually on the physical book. I get promoting and all that, but I would really like to be able to admire the cover of my manga without some sticker being there. Also, when I tried to remove it, it's one of those stickers that only pulls off the top layer and leaves half still stuck to the book. The parts that I did manage to remove I am left with an awful, tacky glue that I don't know if I'll be able to get off. The sticker is probably a small issue for some, but after feeling like I got ripped off with the whole poster thing, this one just one more annoyance that reminded me why I stopped buying books from B&N in the first place. The Good: It's the manga I ordered. It arrived. It's undamaged.
