Yeah that's apparently how it works, even though Genos was able to jump to S-rank immediately. I guess you enter at a rank and then work up the way NO MATTER WHAT.

That's only how it works for C -> A. S is a special rank that they made specifically to put heroes that are the strongest but who are not motivated to rise through the ranks.

Initially, yes. That is why S rank was initially created. But it seems that S rank has become the same as all the other ranks by this point in the story.

Basically. It doesn't really matter what S Rank is supposed to mean when you're dealing with human error, bureaucratic inertia, and Dumb Jerks.

Obviously.

The real question is whether Genos still has to pay him rent now that it's free.

No, the real question is if there's a supermarket in that place, and if so, when are the next sales on vegetables.

There better be, for the Association's sake. Wouldn't want those really expensive defense bots malfunctioning every time Saitama needs to go buy his groceries.

I wouldn't really call it a crush. Rather, he was always someone who cared about power and aesthetics but then he saw Saitama at work. Sweet Mask is a giant dick, but he was one of the few people present at the Garou fight who could actually recognize what Saitama was doing. So, now that he has witnessed someone who is stronger than he could have ever imagined the part about looks doesn't seem so important.

Basically everybody who actually sees Saitama in action is either utterly transfixed, or comes up with some rationalization that a guy that lame-looking couldn't possibly have done it.

Whatever the hell that dude worshiped has tainted Sweet Mask, I'm placing all bets on it.

I took it that Sweet Mask was affected by "God" from the start, he just has a different way of expressing it. Like being a nominal hero with a nasty streak rather than joining the monster club or being openly villainous.

All is, if i have grace to use it so...

I thought all the powerful heroes were basically just monsters that didn't decide to randomly start attacking people? They still have gimmicks based on being so utterly obsessed with something that they've transformed.

Not really, Genos is a robot, Bang is just really good at martial arts, Pri-Pri Prisoner is A Huge Slab Of Beefy Muscle, King is King... sometimes a strong guy is just a strong guy.

Slabs of beef don't have angel transformations, but yeah, robotics and psychics seem to be their own thing.

Still a lot of the rest just seem to be obsession based monsters. Though considering that it's surprising OPM doesn't have any sale based powers.

Monsters are people who undergo a metamorphosis for w/e reason, massively increasing their power while also putting a hard cap on it. I don't remember if this has been explicitly explained yet or not but it's just a minor setting detail anyway,

As far as being strong enough to be a hero, villain, or monster goes, I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter how you get there so long as you've made it.

I, too, just made this colossal mistake. At least I'm waiting on the start of an arc, rather than the end.

I noticed this on a reread: http://kissmanga.com/Manga/Onepunch-Man/44-5-Read-Online?id=195263 Look at the heroes on the page after Saitama goes Bang! His neighbors are in the group. Now I'm wondering if ONE gives Murata some designs for the new content or if he's adding them into the main one.

After reading both ONE's and Murata's version I do believe that ONE's have things planned way ahead especially with the little changes and extras add in Murata's version.

Hoooo poo poo, this is going to be good. It was only a matter of time before Tatsumaki and Saitama inevitably came to blows. She is the closest thing to someone on his level we've seen in the entire comic, possibly even including Garou.
