TODAY WAS THE SPECIAL SALE DAY!

I'm most interested in finding out what the hell the deal was with Hobo King's vision.

Also, the art ONE does may be technically poo poo, but his characterization, expressions, choreography in the action scenes, it's strangely beautiful. Saitama vs Garou was one of the most intense things i've seen on paper.

It's just not as good as Murata. It's still miles ahead of "lovely."

If you compare the ONE comics to the Murata redesigns you'll find that the panel layouts and poses are almost 1:1 across the board. All Murata has really done is make a better looking OPM, but ONE has a really strong grasp of how to design a comic.

"I didn't see the part where he develops as a character so I guess he never developed as a character"

ONE just put up an update, 8 pages. Dunno when it'll get translated but there's barely any text so I can't imagine it'll take long.

Garou's been doing his villain thing for a while, right? I don't think he has enough income or remaining savings left to pay rent to Saitama.

Yeah, but Saitama's current disciple is basically paying all his bills for the right to do his domestic chores. If a new disciple didn't offer him more support of his hobby he would reject him. If it turns out Garou is rich or really good at finding grocery deals it would strangely fit in.

I'm utterly giddy with excitement at the thought of Murata's redrawing the "BUT YOU CAN NEVER DEFEAT ME" panel.

Sorry to undo the effort of paying a domestic abuser $10 to own this poster, but I am going to lose my dang mind if I keep seeing multiple posters who appear to be Baloogan.

Supporting this.
MP100 is pretty drat good.

Also its art is a lot better than onepunch-man. Few panels in there, goddamn. ONE is pretty drat good when he wants to be. Composition and movement are also still top notch.


Also it has an actual update schedule.

Man ONE is really good at making great protagonists. The latest mob and the latest OPM were just perfect.

It's awesome to see the heroes basically in shock over how insanely strong Saitama is. I have to wonder how this will effect his future. Will he be promoted to A level, or will he skip that for a sale at the supermarket.

It ends the comic thats what.
ONE certainly seems to be drawing things to a great climax.

Or it will just become Monster of the Arc until he retires it.

Of course I'd love to keep getting more, but it's hard to imagine how to top the Garou arc. I hope I'm wrong!

Gonna enjoy Saitama putting his foot down, or rather putting it through Sweet Mask's face.

Complex, statistically improbable things are by their nature more difficult to explain than simple, statistically probable things.


Grimey Drawer

Maybe he will put things on hold until Murata catches up and then work only as the writer. We can dream, right?

Also since apparently he's about to smash sweet mask's face, he will break through the s-rank gateway.

Seeing the way this chapter is going:

- Saitama might have to make the choice wether to kill Garou or not, perhaps Garou powers up again and rampages again, perhaps he has to stop the other heroes from doing it.
- Saitama could end up on bad foot with the other heroes, making it interesting when Lady Shibawa's prophecy comes true (I still don't believe it has). Other heroes start opposing Saitama and making things worse?
- Basically I think the story is going to become more conflicts between heroes, I have a hard time seeing it becoming "Saitama became S-rank and everyone was happy".

There's too many loose ends to quit at this point - Geno's arch-enemy still isn't revealed, Lady Shibawa's prophecy still hasn't come true (in my belief), Hobo King's vision has to be forshadowing for an epic villain..

We have decided to decline your offer of a butt kicking.


I doubt the manga is over. There's a lot of unanswered questions. We haven't seen the top S ranked hero. Genos has gotten zero resolution to his quest, though there were hints that his opponent is Metal Knight. It's unclear whether the prophecy has been resolved or not.

I mean, it could certainly end soon. If this winds up to a Saitama vs. the Hero Association smackdown, Bang (is that S-1's name?) and Metal Knight could get pulled in and the major stuff could be resolved within a few updates. It seems a bit unlikely to me.

No one can force Saitama to do anything he doesn't want to do. So, what choice is there? Besides, he probably doesn't even know who Sweet Mask is.

Nah, Bang is the Rank 3, Silver Fang. Old guy who does martial arts.

Rank 1 is Blast.

And Bang's brother is Bomb.

Sorta makes me wonder if they're all related or something.

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

I can see both sides on this one. It kind of feels like it's wrapping up because it looks like our boy is about to get the acknowledgement that he deserves and that's been a large part of the work since it started.

On the other hand these hero's are huge jerks that are just as likely to say it was another fluke or just change their derision to jealousy. As others have said we also haven't even met all the S-ranks, Genos hasn't learned anything, his robotic nemesis is still out there, and I wouldn't be surprised if we saw Garou redeem himself somehow.
