Still haven't seen that dog hero in action yet either.

closest we have seen is in chapter 67 where Guard Dog Man is ripping the freaking head off of a monster with the most nonchalant look on his face.
Guard Dog Man is my favorite S-rank hero

Is his hero name Guard Dog Man or Watchdog Man? This is important.

Depends on your translator. The Murata translation by Boon calls him Watchdog Man (My preference). The ONE translation by HellMuT calls him Guard Dog Man (I'm using that because this is the ONE tread). Either one seems to be correct but I can't read japanese so I wouldn't know which one is the literal translation.

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.

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.

Thankfully Bang is sound enough of mind to realize that nobody stands a chance against Saitama. I'm not sure how he plans to defuse this situation but I don't think killing Garou is going to help anyone. All he has to do is create a situation where the other heroes feel like they got what they wanted.

Compared to most anime out there airing weekly, season 2 looks fine. Not spectacular, but OK.
It's baffling how the OP from the first season really stuck out, had great visuals, and did something more unique than normal by not just lifting scenes from the source material and instead decided to just convey the strength, loneliness, and hype of Saitama. Then Season 2 decided that they needed to be like everyone else and just show you what is going to happen and who is going to show up through mostly static of incredibly short snippets.

Even more bold of you to assume an s3 would get to the good Garou bits, that poo poo would be like 3 cours from where this anime will end at the earliest
You say that, but I've been watching VOLN try and cram 38 volumes of story into 24 episodes, and somehow have an entire Cour dedicated to the last 5 volumes of Karakuri Circus. There's no logic to pacing for an adaptation, whoever gets Season 3 you can be sure they will have to make a blitz for any and all the good fights and cram the rest into it however they can. The 2nd episode of Season 2 already felt like that honestly.

Although it's a joke that's kinda buried under a lot of other gags in that chapter, I love how Genos just, without contest, buys into the premise that they will repair a sword with tape. Genos, who has a very visceral, personal relationship with metallurgy, smithing and repairing, and also has probably enough money to cover for Flashy's sword.

I think the best line was Flashy Flash just telling Saitama to either repair the sword or pay him after getting tired of him.

So what was the point of orochi.
Just another wall for Garou to underdog against?
Because for all that setup he got done in pretty quickly. And not talking about being one punched, its how for all his setup he got less pages than pheonixman.
Among other things, he serves as a better reason for why the association manages to keep all these monsters united under a single banner since the threat of dying to him is very real so even the Cadre are kept in line despite Black Speem, or more specifically Golden Sperm, being of a similar tier. And with Psykos running everything else it keeps her in a leadership role while having some actual muscle to bolster her position.

Being mean to Genos and urging Saitama to kill an incredibly strong guy who claims to be a monster and said he's going to kill a small child and everyone in the Hero's association aren't exactly the worst things a person can do. Like he's kind of a dickhead sure, but that's hardly beyond redemption.

I think that's my take as well. The worst thing Sweet mask has done is kill prisoners who had surrendered. He's still an rear end in a top hat, but everything he's done has more or less just been an extremist form of justice which is still logical. I don't even object to wanting to execute Garou just on the principle that he could potentially retry his attempt at destroying humanity. I know he won't because Saitama has given him a lecture, but still none of the other heroes have any reason to think that. The current chapters give us more insight into his mentality which lets me feel bad for the guy since he's literally grappling with his humanity and trying to basically leave a successor before it's time for him to die.

Also Garou turning back from monster to human in front of him.

Garou always had a surface level transformation. Sweet mask has been a "monster" for some time just with the benefit of being able to mold his features. I don't think he'll ever be human again.

Well with the new aspects of his story its quite obvious that he would never actually harm people.
Monsters are a completely different thing though.
But that's the thing. He was definitely going to kill the mercenary crew had the disciples not intervened. So it's not that he won't harm people, it's just that this time someone managed to intervene to stop him. If he would do it now, he's inarguably done it in the past as well and either had the benefit of no witnesses or a good enough context to brush it under the rug.

this is a cooler blast outfit than the murata version imo.

The impression Blast gives off in the Tats flashback doesn't make it seem like he's a flashy kind of guy. Much like Saitama he's more down to earth, so an outfit that's got those massive pauldrons seems a bit extravagant.

I believe the Child Emperor fight hadn't been collected into a printed volume yet despite there being like 5 months of redraws. All the recent redraws have been for the latest volume that came out as well.
