Birds fly because there aren’t many other things that fly as freely as them, cause If you have nothing competing with you, you can keep surviving. Likewise modern society is fighting to keep the future from happening . Successors are more developed than their predecessors. That is evolution. MPLS are people who posses such possibilities, and are threat to the modern society. This is the race for survival.

Towa organisation is a system that observes and conduct experiments all around the world, through endless research they was able to create countless synthetic human beings but the basis of their research remained top secret, a drug that accelerate human evolution (which often leads to death). Their ultimate aim is to  track down what ever it was that gave human their intelligence and it wants to detect whatever is next.

On his way back home, after getting turned down for another interview Saitama came across a monster named Crablante, who was pranked by a big chinned brat and was seeking revenge. Saitama ends up saving the brat, who was apparently the grandson millionaire named Agoni, on hearing the incident about his grandchild Agoni founded the hero association. After the incident with Crablante, Saitama realized that when he was a kid he always wanted to become a super hero who could send rotten villains flying and not some businessman, thus he proclaimed himself a hero and started a hard training regime consisting of 100 push ups, 100 sit ups, 100 squats and 10 km running accompanied by a healthy diet. Due to this regime and constant fights with enemies stronger than before, he gained immense strength.The inhuman power so gained, left his heart feeling lifeless and empty like he forgot the exhilaration of a real fight. He could defeat the toughest opponent even when he is constantly holding back, just with one punch.
