I feel the same way, but for Tank Top Master. Especially after putting on a tighter tank top for enhanced performance. Is he doomed to never get a decisive victory against a major threat?

Wanna see the whole crew actually do Saitama's training routine and then get a huge zenkai boost just because they were the only ones that believed him on it and followed through.

I think the webcomic is really funny and ONE's art style legit conveys some things in its simplicity that Murata's cannot but daaaaamn I find it pretty common for manga readers to get mega offended when you say they should read the webcomic. what's up with that?

Some people are only in it for the pretty drawings. Story, character, and composition are all very secondary.

Iíve never seen that mentality on SA, so I guess itís just that theyíve been told that by other people already in a far more insufferable manner multiple times? Or that other communities are much worse than SAís anime forum (which is believable, SA as a whole doesnít deserve to be put on a pedestal but itís a good place to talk anime).

At this point I almost think youíre expected to be reading both since ONE storyboards so much of the new Muruta poo poo and characters from the Muruta version have been leaking into the ONE version for a while, so it seems pretty silly that thatís a huge issue.

Getting into a pissing contest about whether manga or webcomic is "better" just makes you look like a loving idiot. They both have their merits and they both are good.

Repetition, same reason people get mad about being told to read Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.

I have to believe I can do this.





It's worth reading the action in the webcomic just to see how well ONE's ability with composition and flow works even without Murata's artwork. He's also among the best I've seen at working with like, super speed characters. Golden Sperm and Garou during end of monster assocation arc were good examples on this, on top of the obvious speedy ninja characters. Flash vs Sonic vs other graduates is really good.

Flashy Flash and Speed Oí Sound Sonic, thank you very much.

I think my biggest disappointment with this entire comic was probably the reveal that Flashy Flash was always called that and it wasnít just his hero name, because it used to be a pretty funny bit that Sonic gave himself a tryhard ninja title when the other super speed guy just had his forced on him.

That also came with the revelation that literally every ninja willingly has a similar horrible name, though.

It's really, really exhausting to like something and have everyone else showing up to tell you how much better something else is. See: The recent ban for FFXIV fans to shut up in WoW forums, or every person who cannot resist talking about how mob psycho is better.

Like, I really, really prefer the webcomic to the manga by a ton but I've seen people mentioning they can't really digest ONE's art and some who only got started in the first place because of murata's art and read in no small part because of that. I imagine it gets exhausting to read the same "the webcomic is better" line after a while.

It's best to leave each thread to its own devices. Crosstalk is bound to happen eventually but if you wonder why they get offended it's probably because they're just tired of hearing the same thing about something they don't care.

Most gags is probably old man of the underworld, followed by one punch man, then mob. It really helps the comedy that old man is usually around 1-2 pages. But the best gags in my mind are either saitamas workout reveal or one of reigens psychic attacks

Mob is great at longer form gags with strong setups, The characters being great really help too.

My favorite recurring ONE gag has to be people completely (sometimes immediately) abandoning their gimmick.

I'm trying to figure out when i caught up with the webcomic, and its been almost four years since atomic samurai diced and apple and King thought "I don't like what happened to that apple!"

"He's full of openings. ...no, wait, he has no openings!"

oh god its been at least five years since i started waiting for the fireworks factory

e: six years and one month. I've been waiting for the fireworks factory for 73 months

Dang, this redraw really screws a lot of good moments up. Now we donít get to see tatsumaki against the monster society by herself, or see king stand up to all of them and freak them out while stalling for time. And we donít get to see zombieman crawl out of the ground and grab hobo emperor. Why is it so hard to just copy what already worked, the redraw feels very humorless. I bet in 4 years when it catches up saitama high-fiving the wrongly named crew wonít even be funny

All of those things can still happen though.

And though the relative proportions of humor to action are different, it's certainly still there.
