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.

"I won't let this little scuffle turn into murder" was pretty hilarious given how many people Garou killed.

What about Bang's students?

Yeah, Saitama is definitely a hero. I don't feel like arguing ethics, though, so how about this. If nothing else, he got his powers in the way every hero in this comic gets their powers. He dedicated himself to a goal and worked hard to get it until he transformed and got super powerful. All the S-rankers, as far as I can tell, are people who became powerful because of incredible devotion to something.

Monsters on the other hand are transformed when they let some part of their life consume them. For example, crab guy succumbs to his lust for crab and so he becomes a crab monster. On the other hand, a guy like pig god devotes himself to being the best goddamn eater ever, and he becomes a hero. Other examples would be the light hobo king succumbing to his laziness, Ugly Fuhrer being consumed by his inferiority complex over his ugliness (contrasts with Pretty Prince devoting himself to being the bishiest dude ever), and the water monster being reduced to his purely reactionary loneliness.

Garou survived more hits than the alien dude. Also, Onepunch-man is a brilliant inversion of basic shounen plot structure. Instead of the protagonist's power jumping every arc, the villain's power jumps every arc.

Wasn't there that amazing gif? It's only a spoiler in the "this kid is powerful and does cool poo poo" sense.

That gif got me pumped to read the comic and only increased my enjoyment.

I think spoiler culture is incredibly dumb, though, so take my opinion with a grain of salt.

strange he only got bumped to near the top of A-class when at least a few people who weren't King saw him flip a building over and own Garou.

Politics still matter and Sweet Mask no doubt hates his guts. He didn't exactly make friends with the psychic girl either.

Wow, Tatsumaki is a real piece of poo poo. She thinks Fubuki's friends are holding her back, so she's going to destroy them all now that she feels Fubuki is strong enough not to be heart broken by the loss.

This fight is going to be great.

Later, Garou notes that a hero is late, but monsters take the initiative. I find it really funny that he then doesn't recognize Saitama as the hero when he shows up late.

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.

Fantastic chapter. gently caress whoever translated it for how they translated Okamaitachi's name though.

You mean, accurately? Okama is not a nice word.

The great thing about translations/localizations is that you can make changes to remove lovely stuff like that. But that's completely beside the point given that it was also the only name they chose to translate, leaving the other two transliterated.

I just wouldn't give One a pass for it.

lol the neo heroes are going to get so wrecked. Going after Garou? They don't stand a chance.

More characters drawn in more detail getting hurt more times. More more more, but I think the One version was more affecting. Golden Sperm beating up Tatsumaki was one page, but it was heart wrenching. That chapter just felt gross.
