Hilarious excerpt from Otomedia about what the One Punch Man boys would do for Valentine’s Day. The answers are assumptions made by the Director (Natsume Shingo) of the anime! Enjoy~
SAITAMA As a result of his intensive training because he wanted to be a hero, he gained a strength so great that he felt like he lost something of his in return.
Q: What would Saitama do during Valentine’s Day? A: Probably fidget around a lot and peep at his mail box.
Q: What is the best way to give chocolate to him? A: Right when he’s done with his One Punch move. Giving him chocolate right at that moment would be the best method.
GENOS With a huge fan club full of beautiful girls, he himself pays no attention to it at all, nor does he care about his own appearance. Instead, he finds himself attracted to Saitama’s strength and aims to be a worthy disciple.
Q: What would Genos do on Valentine’s Day? A: Incinerate all the chocolate he received into a melted pile of goop.
Q: What is the best way to give him chocolate? A: Catch him with Saitama by his side and prepare two chocolates to give both of them at the same time (but only give your favorite chocolate to Genos instead) lol
SONIC After his humiliating defeat from Saitama, he finds him to be a worthy opponent.
Q: What would Sonic do on Valentine’s Day? A: Because he likes to think he’s a present day kind of guy, he would be training at a gym.
Q: What is the best way to give him chocolate? A: If you write on the chocolate “xx-Thunder” or something clever like that, he might take it.
“No, you won’t get big!” (Because big is bad, right？)
“It won’t make you bulky!” (Because to be bulky is to break the rules of femininity, didn’t ya know)
“You won’t look like this (insert image of female body builder).
You’ll look like this (insert image of crazy toned fitness model)”
(because there are only good and bad bodies. Anything that doesn’t look
like the model is bad, ya heard.)
“You’ll get lean, sexy muscle！” (because all other muscle is unsexy, and you only want the sexy. It’s all about being fuckable )
“You won’t look like a man” (because the WORST thing you can do as a
woman is potentially confuse 2-3 stupid people about your gender. Peeps
need their boxes & labels, or else…uh, chaos？).
Heard any of these phrases before？If not, you may have been living in
a bubble, lol. At least, in fitness. But while they are common (and
kinda true, at least in terms of women not being equipped for fast,
large amounts of muscle gain), I’d argue that they do little to actually
address the major concern of women who are scared about weight lifting.
Because it isn’t actually about the muscle.
It’s all well and good to address the female concern of becoming too
“bulky” by offering the standard go-to “no it won’t” answer. And the
facts, of course. There’s lots of ways to do that, and they aren’t
necessarily ineffective: plenty of women have started lifting as the
result of reassurances that they won’t get “too big” (whatever that
means to them). But still, the fear of size is a big issue, even amongst
educated women who can recite the facts behind muscle growth verbatim.
And that’s because the standard - and scientific - answers fail to
address the root of the problem. They may even reinforce it: when we say
“no worries, you won’t get bulky and muscular!” we reinforce the idea
that muscle is a undesirable thing…
…and that’s just IT.
Because when women say they’re scared of getting too bulky, what they
are actually saying is “I’m scared of breaking the rules about what
women should look like and be seen as less desirable”. And when they say
they’re scared of being too muscular, it’s a fear of being judged:the
culmination of their experiences & observations. If it were a movie,
think of a sassy montage of every single negative comment, statement
or stance they’ve ever heard about women with guns. And while the media
can be cruel, the people around us can reinforce negative notions with
tiny comments, judgements and reminders. Negative attitudes towards
women with muscle can be subtle, are generally accepted and pervasive.
If you pay attention to the way women with muscle are treated in the
media, it’s hard to ignore the negative connotations and strong
statements about femininity. Think about celebs like Cameron Diaz,
Michelle Obama, Pink, Madonna, Jessica Biel, Serena Williams, Beyonce
etc: though often revered in fitness circles ALL of these women have
been on the brunt end of body shaming, particularly about their muscled
bits in the mainstream media. They’ve all had strangers “debate” their
bodies, been called “too muscular” and had millions of people comment on
how they “should” look. Which isn’t actually unusual for ANY women in
the public eye, but is particularly helpful if we are to understand why
so many women are scared of muscle. (if you’re doubtful, feel free to
google any of the names with the words “too muscled”).
So, MY thing is this… if we really want to address that concern head
on, we have to dig a little deeper than “don’t worry! You won’t look
like a man (and conversely become less worthy because you’ve been told
that having visible muscle as a woman makes you less f*ckable or
desirable). We also have to dig deeper than JUST supplying the facts-
which ARE facts, by the way: women don’t have enough testosterone to
build significant size, the loads you’d need to be lifting to build
significant muscle are VERY heavy (if you can lift it more than 8 times
in a row, it’s generally not enough to encourage growth, less even. 5lb
& 10lb weights will NOT do much for the average woman) and muscle
building takes time. SOOOOO MUCH TIME. Getting big does not happen by
accident, overnight, or even
over hundreds of nights).
We also have to own our shizz more often. Especially people who WANT
women lifting and getting strong. Say you are a trainer or enthusiast
who spends at least SOME time trying to promote the benefits of
resistance and strength training for women AND you simultaneously (and
1. Make occasional comments about how a female celebrity (or any
woman really) is starting to look “manly” or needs to cut back on
training (without actually knowing anything about her regimen).
2. Refer to muscular women (and there is a BIG range, no pun
intended) as “She-Hulks”, “Trannies”, “Scary”, “Wrong”, “Androgenous Sea
Creatures” or “Gross” (PS: transphobia sucks, but that’s another
discussion entirely #ally).
3. Reinforce the notion that women with visible muscle are
unattractive, undesirable, unf*ckable, unmarryable and otherwise
unworthy in ANY way (big or small). (Example: suggesting that muscular
women may have a hard time finding a partner, or wondering aloud if they
intimidate men). Not about personal attraction (we like what we like),
but in general. Back hair isn’t my favorite thing in the world, but
saying all men with back hair are undesirable is silly, wrong and
downright offensive (right? Right).
4. Use the term “real women” or worse, use it in a phrases such as “real women are soft, have curves, are round, are petite”.
5. Make casual faces, comments, jokes or exhibit a variety of other distancing behaviors when it comes to women with muscle.
… you’re doing it WRONG.
Soooooo….. how about we start by looking at our own language,
attitudes and treatment of women with muscle? Is there something there
you might want to address or change? The attitudes of the people around
us are a HUGE motivator: women who have support systems that encourage
strength and physical fitness report higher confidence levels, positive
self-image and less stress/anxiety over appearance.

MY SPOOKY KIDS- (just gettin ready to work on the WIAD Comic soon, I have to introduce all the characters first! I already introduced these four, but I’ll post their info again just in case!
First, we have OC 30! His name is Ialu, and he’s a Ghost! (He appears in Was it A Dream?)
Ialu is a ghost who will do anything for a human girl named Ida, and loves to think about the most twisted things as possible. He is often laid-back, and finds violence humorous (as he loves to describe it in the most gruesome way as possible). Before he died as a human, he got his hands and half of both legs amputated, so he uses his shadowy arms and legs to assist him, along with his ability to float.
Second, we have OC 33! His name is Till, and he’s a Jack-in-the-box! (He appears in Was it A Dream?)
Till is a Jack-N-The-Box who enjoys scaring others out of the blue. He is absolutely harmless, despite coming from the Spooky realm where everyone has a twisted side. He dislikes it when others tease him, and threatens to kill them (which he can’t do). He is expressionless, but has emotional value. He has a crush on a baby doll name Opaline. Also, he has the ability to return to his human-self, but finds that out very late.
Then, there is OC 36! Her name is Griselda, and she’s s Living Doll! (She appears in Was it A Dream?)
Griselda is a living doll who once lived a very gruesome and dark past, and Ida’s guide through the night of horror. She is quite calm and quiet, and is a huge crybaby. She is scared of anything scary (despite living in the Spooky realm), but she tries her best to stay calm. She is very fragile as a doll, as she can protect herself quite well. Her real face is cracked and has no eyeballs, as she uses a mask to hide that face (She wears eyeballs to hide her empty eye sockets). She is also very good at keeping secrets.
Finally, there is OC 27! His name is Kyran, and he’s a Living Doll! (He appears in Was it A Dream?)
Kyran is very cruel to his sister Griselda, often breaking her and making her feel weak. He is careless for others feelings, and loves to feel pain. Unlike his sister, he does not share many expressions, he always smiles. He covers up all of his darkness with a jolly personality, and teases others a lot. He also finds a way to make anything a weapon, but mainly loves to use his hands or his spear. He cares for Ida very dearly, and follows her around quite often unless he’s off to cause trouble, or to surprise her with something unpleasant.
//So, since I officially am back from my long ass hiatus and finished changing up my blog to a single muse with my OC, it’s time to get active here again. So leave a like (or reblog for side-blogs) for a small random starter or me most likely popping into your ask box/IM to plot something. I want to get this blog back up and running actively on Tumblr again after such a long break.
You know it, guys and ghouls! It’s the Hyde man back on the squeals of steel and we’re cranking this party into OVERDRIVE! but it aint just me this go around! Clawd, Deuce, Gil, even Jackie and my Cuz are here! and we’re all here to answer your asks! so dont be shy, shoot us a request, crew the fat, and get ready for some full-on Monster High hyjinks! Yeeeeeah~

Jan 1, 2016 was the estimated time of the next onepunchman manga chapter release, but instead of getting a manga chapter out we get an advance Valentines interview.
As a result of his intensive training because he wanted to be a hero, he gained a strength so great that he felt like he lost something of his in return.
Q: What would Saitama do during Valentine’s Day?
A: Probably fidget around a lot and peep at his mail box.
Q: What is the best way to give chocolate to him?
A: Right when he’s done with his One Punch move. Giving him chocolate right at that moment would be the best method.
With a huge fan club full of beautiful girls, he himself pays no attention to it at all, nor does he care about his own appearance. Instead, he finds himself attracted to Saitama’s strength and aims to be a worthy disciple.
Q: What would Genos do on Valentine’s Day?
A: Incinerate all the chocolate he received into a melted pile of goop.
Q: What is the best way to give him chocolate?
A: Catch him with Saitama by his side and prepare two chocolates to give both of them at the same time (but only give your favorite chocolate to Genos instead) lol
After his humiliating defeat from Saitama, he finds him to be a worthy opponent.
Q: What would Sonic do on Valentine’s Day?
A: Because he likes to think he’s a present day kind of guy, he would be training at a gym.
Q: What is the best way to give him chocolate?

Some kind of gajevy fic, probably a parody, referring to Tenrou. Although it could be an Easter fic? IDK. I’m waiting for the day my dad comes home with a peeping box and my brother flips, so that’d be some real life experience haha.
send me a made-up fic title and i’ll tell you what i would write to go with it
A/N: I ALWAYS KNEW HOW TO WRITE IT BUT I AM SO SORRY IT LITERALLY TOOK ME LIKE HALF A YR TO ANSWER PLEASE ENJOY
Your arms ache as you wobble a stack of boxes that felt like that they filled with rocks and are a little above your eye level.
“You can do this, just a couple of more steps.” you quietly cheer yourself on, until you accidentally bumped into what felt like a wall. You are about to curse out loud, until you felt two firm hands on top of yours to help you balance.
“Thank you!” you regain your posture and peep over the boxes until you see the CEO in his very own flesh and bones.
