She was pretty traumatized herself since she was used as a science experiment for being a natural esper. And Fubuki tried to bully Saitama as well. Sometimes it takes a random hobbyist to show you that you take your profession too seriously and there's more to life. Tatsumaki is just protecting her sister from people so she doesn't have to be vulnerable or w/e. There's no real villains in this manga, just a bunch of people taking this poo poo too seriously.

Hey Saitama showed Fubuki she wasn't taking her profession seriously enough.

A bunch of them seem to enjoy murdering monsters at least, but those monsters were usually already murdering other people. So it's fairly understandable.

A bunch of those monsters are menaces though who are talking about destroying humanity and poo poo though. And I don't think we've really seen enough of the lower classes other than like Mumen Rider to say oh they just love to kill monsters. If anything most just seem concerned with ladder climbing but other than like a few tank toppers even those who just want to improve their rank seem like fairly decent dudes.

Like I dunno, pretty much all the heroes no matter how weak they are have egos the size of planets but I don't think that makes them unheroic. Like say all those heroes who try to fight the sea king and his goons, they all brag about how they'll improve their rank and that this is a piece of cake but they're still protecting people. And I vaguely remember Stinger at least only going all out once all the civillians cleared out so he wouldn't hurt them. So I think most heroes do want to help people even if they're all kinda selfish.

He just needs to use his long tongue for good. For example, he could become a world-class painter and inspire millions with his striking tongue strokes.

But doesn't the fact that he is not using it for good and instead using it for evil make him a bad guy?

I think they're just going to stand there until Genos or Saitama comes in but on the other hand, I kind of want to see Atomic Samurai just kill him in one hit.

Licenseless and KING are true heroes in spirit.
And also ability.
And appearance.

It's a nice contrast to the likes of Tatsumaki who is crazy powerful but has a lovely attitude but is also a good person, or Sweet Mask who is also really powerful and has a lovely attitude but is not an especially good person.

I don't think Tatsu is really that good a person. She's certainly an asset to the world because she's always on the job and very effective at saving people and everything, but she also has a hell of a lot of issues and can be kinda horrible honestly. Not quite a bad person though.

RatHat posted:

Did you guys miss when Tatsumaki was about to kill all of Fubuki's group because they were weak/a bad influence?

Yeah, it's pretty interesting because the reason she acts like that is seemingly due to an overly literal interpretation of what Blast told her the day he saved her life. And that same outlook kinda explains just the way she acts entirely, both the good and the bad. Tatsumaki's a surprisingly intriguing character, I want her to show up more often.

I keep seeing people say that Mob Psycho is reaching its conclusion but is there actually anything to that beyond people theorising that the recent Dimple/Broccoli arc was just tying off a loose end?

The graduation isn't for Mob though right? Tome's a year older than him isn't she?

Just because Saitama got that strong through his training regiment there's nothing to suggest it'd work the same for everyone else, so it's kinda pointless to discuss whether other people have trained an equivalent amount. They very well might have, they just didn't become Saitama strong.

Kild posted:

But we just saw that a similar thing made Alloy go from a scrawny kid to his current state.

Yeah training definitely makes someone stronger. I just don't think that necessarily means following Saitama's training regiment will make you reach Saitama strength.

If there's one thing that sets Saitama apart from the rest, I don't think it's the training but the understanding of just what being a hero really means. Because he really gets that a lot more than most other characters.

There are several individuals Tatsumaki treats with a vague sort of respect. Usually among the top of S class, King's not exactly the only person. I kind of remember her having some respect for Bang and listening to him and such.

You sure you're not thinking of Tornado there? Though, I don't know if i'd call her all that heroic. Reliable certainly, but she's not really that good a person.

It's so strange that saving this kid is like the whole point of why the heroes are infiltrating monster headquarters but all these recent chapters still just feel like treading water to me. A lot of it is definitely hindsight since I know where the story is going but manga OPM has gotten kinda boring lately and it doesn't feel like everything that's happening really matters. I'm usually super down for getting some time with characters outside the main cast but I haven't been interested lately, the pacing's just been really off.

It's still looks really drat good though.

I don't think it's been much of a deconstruction since like Boros, or Sea King maybe. It's just been a lot slower to get to anything interesting.

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.




How long are the cadre fights going to be im saying. Black Sperm is going to be a year long fight lol

He gives Saitama something to punch which is a lot more important to the Murata comic because it sells itself more heavily on Saitama looking cool as he punches things.

The latest chapter which is largely just heroes interacting is pretty alright. But things like Child Emperor fighting Phoenix Man for 4 chapters and then 4 chapters more in redraw are very lame because who could possibly care.

SyntheticPolygon
Dec 20, 2013



Tatsumaki's whole philosophy doesn't even extend past Fubuki anyway. It's not like she cares enough about anybody else to worry about whether they can handle themselves. This probably just reinforces her belief that she could've done all this by herself and everyone else sucks and was only in the way.
