yo gently caress metal knight, gently caress him up genos.

I don't really think Metal Knight has much to do with the cyborg genos is hunting, but still gently caress him up genos.

e: you guys ever think about how silly it is that there are S Class heroes with the names "Metal Bat", "Drive Knight" and "Metal Knight"? The Hero Association is bad at many things, but naming things is not their strongest suit

I think Genos is a legit hero. Yeah he gets his head handed to him all the time and he's repaired just as easily so it's not easy to get that soaring feeling in your heart when he steps up like it does for Mumen Rider and he's only really motivated by revenge so that's not interesting, but man the guy steps the gently caress up and tries all the time. which is way more than can be said for other S Class heroes. I honestly think Genos coulda beaten the Sea King, cause yo he was loving working that dude out, but he just had to be my perfect boy and he took that acid spit for the girl, and helped win the day along side Mumen Rider. He even helped out King and took out that G4 robot that wanted to kill him. I even kinda remember him being able to keep up with Garou but he was part of an ambush with Bang and his brother so whatever.

also the anime made Genos constantly look like the coolest motherfucker ever, genos rules

Genos was always a generally decent-enough sort and while his tutelage under Saitama seems futile wrt his original intent of becoming stronger, the lessons he's learned from Saitama have made him a better person and that's what's really important. He went from a guy who carelessly almost blew up a bystander (who thankfully was Saitama himself) to someone who was willing to take a potentially-mortal blow to save a life.
hey that's not true, he scanned the area for life before fire nuking the city, Saitama just happened to run into the blast zone chasing the mosquito. being with Saitama has really just taught Genos how to be more chill, and he's still not very good at that.

There were a lot of cool Genos threads after the Boros arc with like, Sweet Mask, Metal Knight and even Drive Knight, but that's been swept real far under the rug after like a million things happened

yeah the whole point of One Punch Man is that the emptiness in Saitama's heart is filled with cool friends and not fights that are utterly meaningless to him

Homeless Emperor's "God" that gave him his powers to eradicate humanity and then killed him after he lost is one of my favorite things in OPM and part of me hopes it's ever fully explained.

Like look at this thing what the gently caress

Yeah I have no idea what's being teased in the Murata thread at all. Like my memory of the events of OPM completely vanishes after the Boros arc outside of big stuff like King and the Monster Association fight

still, a lot of story arcs are wrapping up and it's coming full circle so it

the highest decimal he's done has been like .13? If he actually does Chapter 100.99 tho that'd be just fine tho

Ok but for real. Or where is a good place to read it?
Mob Psycho is a story about a boy born with extraordinary psychic abilities that operate on his emotions. As such, he has had repress them and keep them in check lest he hurt those around him. Now resents his power that prevents him from living a normal life. Mob wants to be buff and popular and date his crush, not be a godlike entity that he has to constantly keep contained

Mob's world is also filled with paranormal spirits and demons as well as other people with different psychic power. Outside of being an eighth grade student, Mob works a side job at the Spirit And Such Agency exorcizing and dealing with those spirits under his mentor Reigen, who claims to possess far greater power than Mob himself.

The story follows Mob growing up and trying to become a more fully realized and mature person and the people in his life that he meets and helps and who help him. It's a great story about self improvement that blends high action with humor and slice of life. The anime that aired last year is fantastic and covers about half the story

I like it, it's good

But yeah, mob psycho is definitely worth reading. I'm seemingly among the few that prefers OPM, even the original ONE version, but some of the moments in mob psycho are just jaw dropping. You won't have to wait long for them either.
i mean it's true, reigen does claim that

and i believe it

To me, Mob just has 100% of it's heart in it. While OPM is certainly no stranger to being sincere, Mob is constantly sincere, even when it doesn't exactly seem like it. Like all of the slice of life moments set up the action scene either through establishing the reason for the conflict or Mob's emotional state or way of thinking now.

it rules

reading mob psycho will teach you that one has always been a great artist. his style can convey brutal action and charming sincerity and gives every a joke a x5 multiplier
