I am having a deja vu. Pretty sure someone said the same thing when the Garou arc started. Let's hope it never goes there, because it is kind of a terrible idea.

Obviously, the need some kind of master of ESP powers, a mentor figure if you will.

There will probably be a point were Saitaman's inappropriate reaction will stop being funny, but this isn't it.

They probably produce a couple of sample clips, show them to Murata, who then proceeds to tear them apart and starts to reanimate everything by himself.

God, I am anxious for Saitaman to competently no sell everything. I don't know why, but even after 100+ chapters, it never fails to crack me up.

Calling now that this fight is gonna end by the two realizing they had too much fun going all out and becoming friends/training buddies.

That doesn't really sounds Tatsumaki. Or Saitaman for that matter.

Man, somebody ask in the anime thread how successful the OPM actualyl is, but I guess when they decided to adept One's even more obscure comic, that doesn't have Murata's art to boost popularity, the anime must be a pretty big hit.

Uh, Mob Psycho is great so I dunno what you are talking about. Now, if they were adapting makai ossan or whatever the name is I would be surprised.

Not quite sure what you are talking about, but I don't think it's a controversial statement to say that Mob Psycho is less well known than One Punch Man.

There seem to be a lot of tribes with powerful kings around.

Speaking as someone who thinks the whole King joke has been a bit over-played by the fandom, this was still a legitimately great chapter. It's good to be reminded that the joke around King is actually funny when written by the actual writer of the series.

The chapter illustrates pretty well how to actually sell the whole running gag with King (or Saitama for that matter). Namely by making the antagonists the actual main focus of the story. The entire chapter is told from their perspective, we only hear their voices and interpretations of the events taking place, King himself is essentially a side character. That is pretty brilliant, because by making these one-off characters the focus, the series almost turns into an anthology of loosely connected short stories, with characters like Saitama or King only being recurring story elements the bind the different everything together. And as a result, it is not boring or too predictable when Saitama one-shots another monster or when King bluffs his way past another enemy, because that is the recurring element in every entry. It isn't import if Saitama wins, it's important how he wins, or better, how his opponent reacts to it and what consequences result from it.

This thread kinda fell off my radar, has there really been no new chapter in the mean time?

Honestly, I kinda growing cold on the Murata version. The latest chapters was pretty boring and all this backstory and additional material really kills the pacing.
