God, I am anxious for Saitaman to competently no sell everything. I don't know why, but even after 100+ chapters, it never fails to crack me up.

I constantly laugh at him no-selling everything too. It's the way he isn't smug, just bored and slightly impatient.

Wait a minute, if she's adopted, does that mean Fubuki isn't her actual sister? .....could she be related by blood with Saitama??

I'm pretty sure the implication is that they're blood related, but were both adopted by the same foster parents.

e: They being Fubuki and Tatsumaki, of course

Saitama's genetics are normal. He did everything with training.

I Just finished rereading this from where the Murata version leaves off and am thinking of things that are foreshadowed that we still have yet to see.

-There's the mad cyborg Genos is after, which Engine Knight hinted to him may have been Metal Knight, plus Metal Knight has his eyes on Saitama after he wrecked the Hero Association HQ's defense robots.
-Then there is the "God" that killed Homeless Emperor before he could explain himself to Zombieman. Additionally, Handsome Mask appeared to become all scarred up when he was getting angry at the group of idolboys, and his scarring greatly resembled the look of the God. Perhaps there's a connection there? Either way I believe both of them are going to become important at some point, whether or not they're connected.
-The whole deal with Blast, the S Rank #1 hero; he's bound to show up at some point.
-I don't think we've seen the last of Garou after he got away after Saitama's defeat.
-There's whatever Psykos saw when she looked into the future that drove her to attempt to destroy humanity
-Black Sperm and Rover are now hidden inside Hero Association HQ as animals. I doubt they're going to do much, but there's always the possibility.
-The immediate fight between Saitama and Tatsumaki
-I think Engine Knight is the only S ranker aside from Blast that we haven't seen their power, so he's probably going to show up and do stuff soon.

I can't think of any other leads at the moment so I might have missed a few.

We haven't seen watchdogman do anything, sadly. And it is weird as hell to call the fight with Tatsumaki foreshadowing, because that is just the current story arc. Like, I guess technically a couple people going "we're gonna fight now" immediately before they fight counts, but it is still weird.

I don't want to spoil anything but if you read Mob Psycho 100 you'll get a good idea of the way Black Sperm is likely to go. Rover's a dog, but also a monster, he's gonna do doggy things, monstrously.

Both are probably going to freak out and annoy King. Genos will probably take Saitama at his word that they're just weird dogs.

That's because Mob Psycho is about Mob discovering that he does actually give a poo poo.

Still, I'd like to know if he has an actual power. A lot of the S-Class are just "really loving strong" but applied in different ways. Like Lightspeed Flash is super fast and Superalloy Darkshine is invulnerable. Heroes with actual "metahuman" abilities that aren't just training or technology are pretty rare. There's like... the psychic sisters, Zombieman and Sweet Mask?

We don't actually know what Watchdogman's power is. He just wears a dog suit and beats the hell out of things but none of it has been actually shown.

I think the characters and writing are just better in One-Punch Man. Or, at least the story is more compelling to me. I read both, but I look forward to OPM far more, and that includes the original version, not the redrawn stuff, which I also enjoy.

Yeah, Mob Psycho is pretty great and everyone should read it, but given a choice between the two I'd take more OPM every time.

These chapters always start out about 1/3 complete and then he fairly quickly adds the next 2/3. Remember that fairly quickly is a relative term though.

MP100 is really good and shares a lot of themes with OPM, even though it tackles them in different ways.
For real tho compare the Garou arc quality to this one's, Like it's not just the technical quality he got better at, but composition, mood and expressions. I'd attribute that to the practice he got from doing Mob Psycho.
