im worried that theyre setting her up to be jotaros future wife or something.

Silver Fang's been pretty adamant about how powerful Saitama is and that he's a shoe in to become S-Rank, and basically every hero there was begging him to finish of Garou because they saw him manhandle the dude. Genos and King would obviously have his back.

But it's a joke comic. If there's a way to make Saitama not making S-Rank funny then that takes precedence over reason.

We need a new rank. A rank to establish how fantastic he is compared to other S-Rankers. He shall now be an F-Rank hero.

You know, the Murata redraw had Sweet Mask being a string-puller at HQ, deciding who gets to rank up and who doesn't. That's even been hinted at a bit in this series, too. I can see Sweet Mask refusing to let Saitama into S rank simply because he hates his guts.

Well, it's mostly because Sweet Mask is easily S rank, and everyone knows it, so his word has a lot of weight behind it. The problem is that Saitama makes S rankers look like leetle babbies.

Zombieman saw the whole fight so he would probably not want to gently caress with Saitama as well.

Garou is also able to make them look like little babies once he's pushed far enough. As a side note, I wonder how Garou compares with that intergalactic dude.

I would say hes weaker than him. The alien seemed like he could destroy the world, and I dont think Garou could do that

We have decided to decline your offer of a butt kicking.


Garou survived more hits than the alien dude. Also, Onepunch-man is a brilliant inversion of basic shounen plot structure. Instead of the protagonist's power jumping every arc, the villain's power jumps every arc.

This is one of the best things. Now with Garou, i've literally been cheering for the villain to land a hit. I mean, I don't want him to win, but just get a few shots in before he gets sent to orbit. When Garou started dodging Caped Baldy's attacks and counterattacked him first with a backfist and then a roundhouse kick, I cheered out loud.

Then kind of followed along with Baldy's disappointment as he started tripping loser flags and going crazy.

We didn't see a bunch of the alien's fight. Not to mention the fact that Saitama was toying with Garou from the start, and never intented to seriously hurt or kill the guy.

I just realized the thread for this version is caught up to Boros, so I can link the best Onepunch-Man fan video ever made without spoiling anything. Click the little ... word bubble in the lower right to get rid of the comments scrolling over the screen.

I seem to remember Saitama saying that he enjoyed the fight with the alien guy, to the point where he mentioned it being a challenge (even though the alien guy knew this was a lie, it still shows that he at least had Saitama's respect).

I read through all of this and a) loved it b) can't wait for the Murata version even more now and c) honestly the art was less terrible than I'd been led to expect.

I found it easier to follow than the end of Greed Island in Hunter x Hunter at least.

Even though the art isn't "pretty" most of the time, it's well constructed, and I can follow it without too much difficulty, which can't be said for some of the huge manga like Bleach or Naruto at times.

You should read Mob Psycho 100. Its ONEs actual manga that he does for money. One is a solid artist when he wants to be. His layouts are always great.

As I understand things he was asked to do designs for some new series and asked to be taught how to animate as part of the deal.

EDIT
In some of the recent pics on his twitter you can see the paper has the telltale 3 hole punches that are used for the pegs when animating.

Also the one with Saitama in the police station is a lot of fun. It's always fun to see him just intentionally give the credit to someone else because he thinks that's the heroic thing to do.
