He's busy and it's been a while so 3 pages is better than 0 pages.

He's also usually pretty prompt about adding to an unfinished but released chapter so he may use it as motivation to finish it up.

This is the same way the ONE releases have gone since I started following his version. He'll release a few new pages at a time over the course of a week or two until the chapter's finished, then it's back to a-waitin'

Homestuck is a true work of art surpassing all of Shakespeare's works.


The one thing that actually seemed to hurt Saitama; being reminded of his alienation. Poor chrome dome.
I'm really curious as to what Tats was about to say about Blast. It seems to imply he's part of the reason why Saitama is isolated.

He has friends, but they are all other heroes. Whereas Tatsumaki was talking about the hero association staff, which is who she interacts with most of the time. So while her question was factually correct, she missed the point entirely.

Bringing up Blast in comparison with Saitama makes me think she acknowledges his power may exceed her own. She's finally connecting the dots.

To me it looked more like Blast has something to do with why Tatsumaki is a hero. Like, she was about to answer Saitama's original question ("Why are you even a hero?") and then changed her mind.

It supposedly says Blast is a hero for a hobby, but he takes it more seriously than Saitama

Wow, poo poo is going to go down.

Blast is a hero as a hobby, but unlike Saitama, he has a full time job as well. Told Tatsumaki that you can't expect someone to save you when you're in a bind.

Also, there's going to be a new hero organization springing up. They don't think much of the Hero Association, and they're recruiting all kinds, even S ranks like Genos.

Given that Blast was active when Saitama was only like 6 or 7, you've got to wonder what the dude is like now.

Granted, we have seen old heroes like Bang and Atomic Samurai (37 is old no matter how you atomic slice it). Or a few A rankers. Or that C ranker who's a salaryman.

Guess everybody wants a bit of the civil war action. The new association looks pretty good on paper but I think it's just going to be as corrupt and legalistic as the old one.

I wonder which of the S Class heroes are going to defect?

I can't imagine Saitama getting headhunted for the new organisation so I think that prevents Genos, Bang or King switching.

Tatsumaki, Pig God and Watch Dog Man seem to be above politics but the rest, like Metal Bat or Darkshine seem like pretty good candidates.

Josuke Higashikata

No way is Genos not swapping over.
He doesn't trust them, the HA is basically Metal Knight's.

Engine Knight and Genos almost definitely will. Saitama won't give a gently caress so will likely stay with the HA, Blast is probably going to pull double duty and be the ultimate leader of the Slayers.


Drive Knight? The dude who is never in it.

Genos really doesn't give a poo poo about the Hero Association though and quitting would mean giving up his apprenticeship with Saitama (not that Saitama would care if he did).

Considering he doesn't need Genos to pay his rent anymore now that he hasn't got his own home, so the apprenticeship was kind of over on Saitama's end anyway.

Having Genos over in the new association gives us a good POV character in their ranks, I don't think it would really affect his "apprenticeship" with Saitama because he's a cool dude + its not like anyone gets to do much fighting when Saitama is on the scene

I really think the Genos we know would only make the switch if 1) Saitama also did, which would give the new organization a reason to try to recruit Saitama, or 2) if Genos realized how little he's actually getting out of the Saitama/Genos apprenticeship, in which case he might go over just to try and do things for himself again.

Hasn't he already realised that though? I could've sworn pretty early on in the comic Genos had some internal monologues going on about how not even Saitama knows where his power comes from and he just stuck around in hopes of getting some clues anyway, and then later on got caught up in Saitama's heroic attitude himself.

Also they're besties and would hang out anyway, apprenticeship or not.

Don't forget that Genos' primary aim is to avenge his family and that Bofoy/Metal Knight is the prime suspect currently, further compounded by Drive Knight casting his suspicion of MK onto Genos.

His apprenticeship under Saitama was to get strong enough to beat his enemy, but weakening MK and using his technology to better himself is something that should interest Genos.

A difference in ideals, viewpoints and aims would make the Genos/Saitama dynamic more interesting too. It's kind of lovely as it is. All of the other Saitama gang have a better and more interesting dynamic than Genos and Saitama. A Genos who is more than "jobber to the stars" would be neat.

I think if Genos does join the new association it'd probably go like this

Genos: Sensei, I have been invited by another hero, a man known as Drive Knight, to join a new Hero Association that is focused on becoming more efficient in eliminating evil. Now, I know you are confused, even though i've sworn to become heroic you are full aware that my duties as a Hero were never so strong as to switch sides, however I was made further aware of circumstances that paint Bofoy, aka Metal Knight as the prime suspect for the murder of my village, which included my family, and that has been my mission all these years: to avenge my family by bringing the robot who killed them to justice and finally bring peace to their memory, but it appears I cannot do that while I am still in the Hero Association, so I must join the new association. The old association is now realizing your power, has given you a place to live and surely you are close to becoming an S-Rank hero, so I do not wish to force you into joining the new association, as I am still somewhat suspicious of their true intentions, it would be best if you remained here, finally enjoyed some respect as well as a comfortable place to live, yet that means we will have to go our different ways for the time being. Please do not see this as a betrayal, I still have the most profound respect for you, Saitama Sensei, and I know your wisdom is vast, but I must do this for myself and if this association is as honest as they claim perhaps you can join us so we can more efficiently save people and be heroes, but for now my mission, what I truly must do, is to avenge my family and this new association is the key to that, even if it means fighting the S-Rank Hero Metal Knight. I am ready for such a fight, I have been given new weapons and a new body by doc-

Saitama: Can you still come over and walk my dog once or twice a week?

Genos: Yes, Sensei.

Saitama: 'Kay, i'll get you a spare key.

If you must blink, do it now.


Saitama and Genos originally joined the Hero Association under different circumstances than they find themselves in now. Saitama wanted recognition, Genos wanted Saitama's approval. Saitama has since discovered/decided that fame isn't all it's cracked up to be, Genos finally has Saitama's acceptance (as a friend if not an equal), and both of them are very acutely aware of the petty factional politics and corruption rampant throughout the system.

Saitama may or may not care, but I don't think that's going to stop Genos from making the switch if he wants to.

I want to say that Blast is the leader of this new Hero Association, simply due to how often he's absent from meetings (or implied to be frequently missing). Chances are he's off setting up this new association when he became disenfranchised by the current system, and now the split is going full swing.
