New OPM Chapter
I have no idea what's going on
Although it was Boon that was translating the Murata version when I started working on the ONE version. Then Boon dropped it when viz licensed it and UK picked it up. UK also did some of the ONE chapters during the monster association arc because I had such an erratic release schedule back then.
I usually stick more to the text while translator-san is more freely in conveying messages. In the end we both get the same message across, but mine look a bit stiff because I tend to stick as closely to the text as possible.
this chapter in a nutshell: saitama meets fubuki, who questions psychos what she saw happening in the future, tatsumaki wants to kill off psychos.
I see. The thing is though that if you just translate as close to Japanese as possible then it's not gonna sound as good since figures of speech, grammar and all that jazz. It's important to catch the character's personality.
I agree, however just based on the text, there isn't as much character traits as you think there is. In a way translator-san and I made saitama and garou into characters you're reading about right now, when they sound a bit differently in Japanese.
It should be a given that Saitama would sound a bit apathetic and mundane while Garou a bit cocky and jokerish (before transforming). Personally I think that it's better to change how you convey the message into fitting the character than staying true to the text. Like how in Japanese someone says "This guy..." it would mean like "Fuckin bastard". In English "This guy" is more like "Oh this guy, he's a real trickster!".
The real kicker that translators give is morphing the text into fitting another language. I feel that just plain translation is something a computer could do just as well. Thanks for all your help boss.
She's interrogating psykos and is on Saitama's side who wouldn't just want senseless murder. Also she trained the move she used against psyko's with the intention of surpassing her sister
> Saitama go between Tatsumaki and Fubuki
> He tells Tatsumaki a little sister shouldn't fight her older siblings
> He says he and his brother used to fight all the time when they were young too
> Saitama has a brother
> He's been following his big brother's path for more than 5 years now
>Also she trained the move she used against psyko's with the intention of surpassing her sister
which, said movement, is Tatsumaki default ability
I was really sad when the box explain that. poor fubuki
Status update: Translation done.
I'll get to cleaning and typesetting after a short break.
Here's the text in the mean time:
You're still here?
'course I am!!
Please don't just leave me out here.
C'mon, Let me in!
I can totally be of use to you, boss!
Guess I need to get a doghouse...
Oh! I know!!
Since we're having a duel anyway,
why don't we make the loser take care of them?
A dog and...
What is this thing?
Is he... serious!?
Some animal you picked up?
Nope, it followed me on its own.
Isn't that... some kind of monster?
Is it safe to have that here?
Will I have to pretend to be an animal?
Well fine with me.
If putting a bet in will get you to take this seriously.
The loser will take care of the pet.
Sound like fun.
Let's find a big area.
The parking lot will work.
You're about to be in a world of pain,
no complaints later, got it?
Right back at you. When this is over,
no asking me to take you as my disciple, okay?
Ha ha ha!
Confidence is a must for a hero.
You wouldn't get anywhere if you hesitate.
This will be the first time I've seen Forte fight...
Following a rhythm isn't anything new. First class martial artists do it too.
It's a unique fighting styles that have been through many battles. He's going regret
comparing it with circus tricks.
Let's do this...
Getting scared now...
I said there's a car coming behind you!
He's hit! Is he okay!?
It's because he didn't move even after I honked the horn...
Oh man, he's out cold.
And that's Forte of A-class, isn't it?
Damn man... We're gonna be in trouble...
A lot of trouble.
What's the big meet up for?
Now you know the dangers of listening to music in the middle of a fight.
I do feel a little responsible for it though.
It was your car that ran into him.
You better apologize to him later, Fubuki
What are you doing here?
Don't tell me you live here?
'cause my home was destroyed.
This is a good opportunity, you come too.
As the Fubuki group's special A-class member, I give you permission to accompany us.
Since when am I a member of your group?
You're as stuck up as ever I see.
I'll let you meet with the ringleader behind the destruction of your residence.
He became an A-class?
Why... Why always him... what makes him so special...!?
What about us...
Then, as promised...
Well, I am responsible for letting them in, so how about we take turns.
Wait a second, why do we have to...!!?
I got something to do, so you handle them.
Wait, goddamn jerk...!!!
First King, now the B-class Fubuki group...
Maybe... we're the ones out of the loop for not knowing him...
So, who are we meeting?
You'll know when we get there.
You might have some interest in what we're about to hear.
I'm here to see someone. The number is...
She's on the 13th basement floor.
37 people won't fit on the elevator.
Then me and Mountain Wolf will go with you...
...Only me and Saitama will go down.
Wha... Then what are we here for...
All of you will stand guard and make sure no one interrupts us.
Until we come back, don't let a single person ride this elevator.
...? ... Yes, maam!
We won't let even a rat though!
I'm counting on you.
You made it sound like you're expecting someone to come...
... that's right...
I am expecting someone.
And the Fubuki group members above
won't be able to stop her... she'll waltz right through.
At best, they'll buy us some time.
I was lucky you were here.
There's a small possibility we could win now.
I place your strength in high regard.
Because I fought Garou too, I know...
That thing was one of those that had reached the top...
And since you dealt with that, you too have reached the top.
I had given up on reaching there, but I can tell...
Up ahead is...
An old friend.
Honestly... I didn't think you'd be alive.
You've gotten tougher,
Are you here to kill me?
I'm here to talk.
Why did you form the monster association?
And why did you destroy my home.
You had a plan, didn't you?
The monster association...
The ability to see the future, "the third eye"
you suddenly change when you learned that ability.
It's about time... will you tell me what you saw with that ability...?
I didn't see anything...
I know... nothing...
I... don't remember...
... I don't want to remember...
She's totally scared.
Please! We don't have much time...!!
This morning... The association added you to the HQ prisoner list.
Any pro hero can check that information...
When she realizes you're still alive...
She will no doubt...
Come to finish you off.
So. Saitama's harem so far.
>Genos, Sonic, Fubuki, King, Bang, Garou,
Black Sperm & Rover
Am I right?
Oh man. Fubuki seems so... mature and competent.
Sweet Mask seems to admire Saitama, though.
Looking at it from the point of view of the hero association, they may have just decided that the other heroes were tired out from fighting the other dragon class threats of the monster association.
but every hero needs to file a report when battling a threat, so everyone should have wrote how saitama beat something they all had trouble with
...of course, this means saitama as well must have written a report
"there was a guy who was macking a ruckus in the night, so i punched him. Then some stuff happened and one way or another i tore the Halloween costume off his body. He didn't apologize, but i think he learned his lesson"
>Heroes going rogue
She's just there to take care of business.
The big thing we're all missing here is the possibility of Saitama vs Tatsumaki. I surely did not expect this. This fight is even more hype since it's telekinesis vs brawn.
So...Sweet Mask, Metal Knight, and Tatsumaki arc, huh?
Although, I think it may be more of the heroes going crazy and oppressive with their views.
Tatsumaki probably wasn't very flattering in her version of the report. Sweet Mask and Zombieman's reports (if the latter decided to completely disclose everything; who knows what his feelings towards Saitama may be) may have been better, but Tatsumaki's words might hold more weight.
All the other heroes were unconscious.
i don't think she ever cared about them, as they are spineless cowards who would rather be someones underling then work hard themselves
and i don't think fubuki thinks any more of them as well
she respects king though
OTP, an otaku and his loli waifu
you dare to doubt king? Strongest of all heroes?
So, considering that Saitama has never even actually tried to 'fight' seriously or stress himself to fight...
What happens if he actually gets angry and fights at 100%
Does "The Touch" play?
>Tatsumaki vs Saitama
This is going to be hilarious
I love you enough to dump it for you, even if no one else does.
>When this is over, no asking me to take you as my disciple, okay?
>implying it's not Pig God
>killing helpless, imprisoned people
>he just got rid of the previous one.
Don't say that anon.
This is the original, written and drawn by ONE.
The nice-looking version is a fan redraw by Murata, but it still uses the original script. He works with ONE to make occasional side chapters that aren't in the original, too.
Ah. There we go. I wonder what it is that causes people like you to act out. Do you just wish to make the thread unpleasant with your presence?
People are happy to see the overall story continue to progress.
I know we're all hype for the confrontation but what if Saitama just
Hes probably gonna avoid/block all her attacks while saying "plz stop. no srsly plz stop" with a blank face till she tires herself out and then her sister will try to reason with her.
Somebody will blurt out that it was Tatsumaki who destroyed his house and then he will want her to pay him
>can drag several hundred tons of shit up from a mile underground
>can't throw one person a couple thousand
Even if Saitama was grabbing onto the concrete with his toes or whatever, she could still just launch the ground around him too.
He caertainly could pull off a normal ONE chapter in a week, but he has a thing for doublespreads, or generally making panels bigger to make room for his art, so many times we get half a chapter once every two weeks at best.
Tatsumaki is going to try and kill Psykos but Saitama will step in front of her demanding she pay for his house. She will try to push him aside but when she realizes she can't she will
fall in love with him and then OPM becomes a harem with Fubuki, Tatsumaki, Genos and Black Sperm
Who knows. She said she would handle him fine of not for brain damage. And he saw her as Hero Association's trump card. Until he realized how broken Saitama is.
We'll see next chapter how this turns out so whatever.
So far she was challenged only once in the entire manga. And that was only because another esper developed a counter against her and used it in a perfect moment.
If Tatsumaki took that fight seriously it would be over in 10 seconds.
>If Tatsumaki took that fight seriously it would be over in 10 seconds.
Can we stop with this shit?
The only character in the whole series that can and has used the "but I am not even serious yet" card was Saitama, there is no indication that Tatsumaki is so ungodly powerful as you are wishing her to be.
So, I was rereading the chapters where Saitama fights against Boros. It seems as if the chapters posted on batoto are a bit screwed up at that time? It's like, after Boros' armor is destroyed and he goes through his first transformation, there's only one page of his "fight" with Saitama shown (him talking about how "good" Saitama is) before he's shown transforming into his FINAL FORM. The pages of him bragging about his race's regenerative and energy projecting abilities seem to have been skipped entirely?
The other site I read the chapters on, kissmanga, don't always have the 'updated' chapters either. I'm planning on finally getting around to downloading all the chapters off of nerieru's site some time, but since I'm going off to the airport soon, can anyone recommend a site where all the chapters are properly uploaded? To give me something to do while I wait for my plane, anyway.
That can happen because the releases are kinda of a mess, all with the chapters being only half release or when Murata decides to redraw something(I am quite sure that happened with Boros), so maybe some stuff gets lost when they update the chapters on those websites to match the latest version.
I wish ultimateking had a website so we could follow the releases more easily.
because OPM is his hobby, it was and always has been
also the fans demand it, not just ONE's original fans, but also fans who just want to know what happens next. It's possible they will do what you suggested once Murata caught up
And wait HOW LONG for Murata to catch up?
They both do this for leisure. Neither he or Murata are being pressured to update, after all. What Murata does is give his art. What ONE does is continue the story. There's no reason why the story should have to be paused completely. He updates it at his leisure, after all.
So? Boros can still have greater destructive power while having worse speed/defense/technique/etc.
Since when does rank solely = power? How much effort you put in counts as well. That's why King is #7 despite being considered the strongest man (man in this context meaning human you fucking dolt). Because people like Tatsumaki put in more effort and also have powers that are more versatile, whereas King is allegedly simply a master at making shit die.
Pretty sure you are mistaken about the 'catch' here, most believe it was strongest in terms of physical strength(and so, he is not the most powerful man) and not that it had fucking anything to do with the Blast's gender.
The more plausible take on it is highlighting "Strongest" as in pure physical strength. Look at the hero rankings where the people above him are all oriented towards different paths like intelligence,speed or technique.
In that moment he knew that he would survive and be fine, so no intervention was necessary.
He also saw a thousand cosmi flare in and out of existence, jerked himself off a billion times, did his laundry, punched the supermassive blackhole at the center of the Andromeda Galaxy because it was being noisy, and gave no fucks.
Before the thread runs out of momentum, anybody aware of pic related?
>That's just because those who do invariably respond to you with revulsion.
>A sociopath is your only ticket off the Wizard Express.
The Wizard Express arrived at its destination years ago. Apparently I'm a 'cold', 'emotionless monster', with 'no human warmth at all'. Fuck them, that's the ideal; I worked really hard to get there.
Bahamut, now I want Sawashiro to voice this legal loli.
ONE said that during an interview he did on nicovideo, however I did not record it so for now, so there's no "source" except my words.
The thing is, comparing murata's opm to ONE's isn't fair because murata tends to add more to a fight to make them look more epic, so we'd have to see what murata does with the garou fight to be impartial about it.
It was rather the opposite, wasn't it? People didn't seem to think Boros was as strong as Garou. In any case, it's the fixation on the 'planet buster'. There were many people who just thought it was hyperbole before; after Murata's version, it seemed as if more people popped up who believe Boros' attack could actually "bust" the planet.
Considering the changes Murata did on the art for Saitama's punch against the Sea King (he made it more subtle in the newer version, so that the civilians could actually doubt the authenticity of his strength better), it's probably safe to say that if there's anything really wrong with the depiction of the scene, Murata would change it. And if it was way off, you'd think ONE would speak up, right?
ONE liked what murata did with the boros fight, so it's highly possible murata will add some extra flavor to the garou fight as well.
I haven't been on mangahelpers for years, but thanks for the notice. Wouldn't it be better if I just called him "mumen rider"?
>I haven't been on mangahelpers for years, but thanks for the notice. Wouldn't it be better if I just called him "mumen rider"?
That's a little too weeb. To me, "Common" is not only an okay pun but it rolls off the tongue better than "Licenseless". It's still your call.
How did Viz translate it, anyway?
He shows up in Murata filler. He's an entertaining recurring character, so I don't know if he'll show up before the Garoub owl..
When OPM eventually gets animooted in a few years, I'm going to pick it up and TL it that way.
Oh, he had a punny name, huh?
Hey, ultimateking. What was it that you decided to call Slicing Shemale? I can't remember if it was you or the other guy who's currently been doing translations for ONE's chapters (or both of you) that was wondering what to do with that guy's name.
It was the original translator's idea. I would probably just leave it as "Okamaitachi" and add an explanation below like how I did with Iaian.
What I'm thinking about right now is whether to call fubuki "miss blizzard" when her henchmen address her or something else.
And what seems better, "Psychos" or "Psykos"?
Hm. I'm leaning towards just using "Blizzard' when her full hero title is used (when she's being called Blizzard of Hell).
So unless there's a syntactical reason to go with one over the other, I'd go with Psykos. But that's just because I'm the kind of guy who thinks that just "looks" better.
Slicing Shemale is okay to me. Okami and Kamitachi are really difficult to put together.
I'm split on the Fubuki/Blizzard Tatsumaki/Tornado topic. On one hand, the OPM setting is a hodgepodge of east and west like One Piece, and there was the fact that the girls were called by those names before they became heroes. On the other, that hodgepodge does lean more towards the west with the hero thing.
I always thought "Psycos", but that's just me. Anything's fine.
Ultimate God Slayer Attack better look really awesome.
Failing that, he just murders the shit out of everything else he comes across. So a more detailed battle with Golden Sperm, more effective beat up of the heroes, Sweet Mask, Shine and Lightspeed in particular and whatever else.
It's Okama (Japanese word for, well, you know) and Kamaitachi (the Japanese yokai known for slicing things up). All he really needs to do is add an O to the second. Not really that hard to "put together".
No, ultimateking is already calling them Tatsumaki and Fubuki. What he's asking is what he should have her subordinates refer to her. Would it make more sense for them to emphasize her hero name or what.
From what i know it's just Mumen Rider with their version, kinda boring if you ask me.
I would just keep licenseless rider, everyone aside for Viz readers is already too familiar with that name
Viz often translates things deliberately differently from scanlations.
It depends on the editor.
Anyway, if anyone's wondering I suggested ultimateking translate Licenseless Rider as "Common Rider" since it sounds better and works as a pun. Even though it's way overdue to bring up, my autism always bugged me about this.
after several long arcs she learned her lesson to be more humble, however she became too humble and now doesn't want ANYONE to know who she is
it all makes sense
so we will get to see her in the god-arc of OPM, since her powers were granted by god(well, angels technically) as well
Now post your favorite fanarts, NSFW or not. Found this one recently, it's pretty great.
Like I said in the PM, it's "common" in the "ordinary" sense. Like, a "common" housefly.
He's a guy who rides a bicycle, as opposed to the motorcycles that Kamen Riders traditionally use. Also, he's a weakling with no special powers.
"Licenseless" is just too literal and has no pun value, which is important considering the majority of heroes have pun names.
Very interesting statement we got from ONE, confirmed on his nicovideo live interview:
1. Sonic with weapon would've defeated sea king pre-rain form.
2. Sonic's last appearance was just a joke on the popularity poll (means he'll show up again)
3. Genos and Sonic's fight would end in a tie.
4. While the most popular one in their world is sweet mask, king is rather high up as well.
5. pri pri prisoner could've defeated the giant bird that crashed into king's home.
6. The origin of boros' name is from a game ONE played.
7. Genos is rather powerful even amongst the s-class heroes.
8. The situation against the monster association would've changed, if metal bat was around.
9. Metal bat wasn't joking when he said "he could take care of a dragon level threat"
10. King's height is 187cm
11. Tatsumaki in her best shape could've defeated golden sperm
12. Golden sperm is equally strong as ossan (main protagonist from makai no ossan)
13. Tatsumaki > Normal Mob, if he gets serious, there's no answer.
14. Zombieman needs 15min to recover a cut off arm.
15. He'll die if you reduce him to mince meat
16. There's the rumor that he's the weakest amongst s-class heroes, but it hasn't been confirmed
17. It would be difficult for him to defeat sea king
and here's the official statement from ONE regarding garou vs boros
>"Garou vs Boros, who would win, you ask?
Before (pre-monster garou), it was quite obvious boros was ways above him. But now that garou has basically become the perfect monster, it is hard to tell who would win, it would've been one hell of a battle. I do believe that garou is stronger in close combat, where he would simply dodge all punches and kicks"
technically, the entire Murata version is fanart
>8. The situation against the monster association would've changed, if metal bat was around.
>9. Metal bat wasn't joking when he said "he could take care of a dragon level threat"
You gotta be tough as fuck to make S-class when your gimmick is hitting people with a metal bat. Just saying.
and this part pretty much suggests "just treat them as equal if you have to categorize them".
I hope that'll stop all the pointless powerlevel debates in the future about those two.
