It's been so long between arcs that I forgot how this comic works and was legitimately surprised

I was expecting it eventually, but the timing was just perfect. The contrast with the Murata version being in the middle of a super long arc just makes it funnier.

With all the hype I was just worried about if he was going to end up being stronger than Flashy Flash or not.

The solution we got was still great, and now Saitama is less stressed out about one thing at least.

Also, this is probably one of the most detailed close-ups we've seen.



And knowing what happens in advance must have given ONE a lot of pleasure in doing so much detail for that panel.

I love that we got the reverse horror monster treatment for this guy. We never really saw what he actually looked like, instead we were given juuust enough hints and had to use our imaginations.


And then he got clobbered offscreen, so we'll never really confirm what he looked like. It was beautiful.

It happens at the end of chapter 115, right as Sonic and Flash begin their duel.

These chapters were loving amazing. :stare:

Like, the first bit is hilarious, and Saitama just sitting there wondering why Mask ordered for him is great. But then the loving lore drops of this world being the super continent, and confirming that mask is indeed a monster slowly slipping. All while Saitama doesn't care, for comedy and for touching-ness.

I can't tell if the first half is just supposed to be a daydream or not.

The second half is perfect because I had exactly the same reaction as Saitama.

I dunno. Yeah, the first half of ole Sweet Mask's pitch was ludicrously overbearing and dumb. But he was listening to Saitama's comments, he took him aside and explained pretty concisely why he's scared without there being a perfect human hero, and even when he was being rude he was listening, sort of. Ole Saitama's being uncharacteristically rude this chapter.

Although Sweet Mask proooobably shouldn't have called for the hair stylist.

So, Sweet Mask wants Saitama to become All Might from MHA. Can't blame him for not being interested, really.

I think he is being rude because he personally dislikes Sweet Mask.

If some random stranger ordered your drink for you without asking what you'd like would you really think highly of them?

Also Saitama did listen to Sweet Mask's whole spiel.



He just reacted no differently than he did with Garou. Sweet Mask is still human, in Saitama's eyes, regardless of outward appearances. Ironically, Sweet Mask was the one who didn't listen.

EDIT: From someone else:

quote:

Mask is just feeling increasingly withdrawn from people, a byproduct of upholding a fake image of himself to remain relevant to the public. Showbiz and public relations have these effects on people, losing respect, depleting empathy and stoking anger issues. He mistakes it for inevitable monsterification. But Saitama sees through it.
