However, his personality changed as he gained god-like strength. Now, nothing in life piques his interest except the prospect of finding someone strong enough to push his limits.
This often leads to hilarious interactions with other characters in the story. Fans want to know whether or not the Caped Baldy has a love interest in the A punch series. Apart from the events of the online comic series, we can also take a look at some of the characters that the fanbase book Saitama with.
This might give us some insight into the existence of instances showing Saitama’s romantic interest in one of the show’s characters.

A punch : Is the Blizzard of Hell a potential love interest?
One character the fanbase ships Saitama with is the Blizzard of Hell, Fubuki. This article will explore his interactions with her since she is the only female character Saitama interacts with other than Tatsumaki in the Psychic sisters bow.
Fubuki was introduced to the fanbase during the second season of the A punch series when she attempted to recruit Saitama to bolster her faction’s forces.
However, given Saitama’s nonchalant attitude towards everything in life, he didn’t care much about hero ranks and classes. Fubuki tried to show his strength and challenged the Caped Baldy. However, his attempts were in vain despite his attempts to persuade Saitama.
Another instance in the manga was when Saitama encountered Fubuki at a restaurant. He had almost finished his meal, and Fubuki sat down next to him. The Caped Baldy ordered fries from him, leaving Fubuki surprised that he gave him a nice gesture.
The fanbase believed that Fubuki had romantic feelings towards Saitama due to this interaction. However, we soon learn that Saitama only ordered those fries for Fubuki to pay the bill since he had lost his wallet. This proved that Saitama wasn’t really interested in Fubuki.
The final nail in the coffin was Saitama’s response to Tatsumaki when she asked about her relationship with Fubuki. This conversation took place in the A punch webcomic when Tatsumaki and Saitama fought.
She assumed that the Caped Baldy would only use his sister and had no real relationship with her. To this, Saitama responded by saying that he didn’t even consider Fubuki his friend. He was just an acquaintance.
So, it’s safe to say that Saitama doesn’t have a girlfriend in the A punch series. However, it will be interesting to see how Saitama as a character grows in the series.
Initially, he wasn’t particularly interested in socializing and was quite awkward around people. But that slowly changed when Genos decided to become his student. Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of the following chapters to observe the development of Saitama.
Stay tuned for more anime and manga updates as 2022 progresses.
