How did Saitama get money when he was training? He has a decent single apartment and food and shit. Did he just live off welfare?
Is City Z a generous welfare state? I suspected it wasn't because of their problems with socialist terrorists.
his father gives him an allowance obviously
He lives in an abandoned part of town, where the rent is basically dirt, because of rumors about monsters living in the area.
So while I don't know where he gets money from, he wouldn't need much to pay for the apartment.
Maybe he actually had a number of part-time jobs?
He used to live in the worst slums in town where all the crime originated from. He probably lived off his savings for a while until he was so far behind on his rent that he had to become a bounty hunter to make ends meet. By then he realized how much money a bounty hunter could make and he got kicked out of his slum apartment and moved into the place he's in now.
As for right now he's being paid by the hero association and no one charges him rent since the town is abandoned.
>As for right now he's being paid by the hero association and no one charges him rent since the town is abandoned.
Why doesn't he just break the walls and live in that whole building as if it was his?
He probably doesn't realize he's doing it. He probably moved in when the owner was still there, and was behind on his rent, so when the owner disappeared, he just pretended nothing happened but was ready to leave at a moment's notice if the owner came back asking for backpay. Either that, or it was a gift for saving the owner from a monster or something, which is part of why he was so mad when it got destroyed.
Unemployment monthly payments are so good in Japan that you really don't need to work lol. If you were to convert the unemployment welfare in terms of an hourly wage, you'd get a number that's twice the minimum wage.
>could be doing construction worker, sports, bodyguard, soldier, furniture moving, etc literally anything that requires strength
Is Saitama just a lazy degenerate?
Is it hard to sign up for though? For example, in the US you don't typically get Welfare/free money from the government unless you're dirt poor WITH dependents or you jump through some serious hoops while feigning disability.
Being poor while not qualifying for aid is an uphill battle for general livelihood. It can make you want to quit life forever.
I think you're getting close to the true heart of his power. Saitama's super strength isn't because he's got insane willpower: quite the opposite. He's super powerful because he's super lazy, and intensely dedicated to that laziness. And the best way to be lazy is to be so powerful he don't have to do anything.
>Tats and Saitama
you really should go and look at /biz/ once a while anon, I stopped working like 9 years ago at age of 23 but right now I can spend $20k to buy what ever I want a year outside of the expense paid for food, housing and car stuff.
Then you will always be retarded in my heart.
>I can spend $20k to buy what ever I want a year outside of the expense paid for food, housing and car stuff.
This is enlightening. Tell me more.
nope, wasn't stocks, I did many things through out the years, all of it riding the pre-wave of the trends that some people in /biz/ posted but people wrote them off as trolls
all you have to do is read and spot the next trends that some people tried to talk about or brainstorm in /biz/ and everyone wrote it off a some trolling but turns out to be making butt tons of money 6 months later and everyone will ask how to do it
it's scratching a scratch'n win ticket when you lurk /biz/, you either win big or wtf did I just read.
it's just like when faggots from /g/ were bashing those anons that said bit coin will be big 3 months after they inventor brought the whole thing to day light
Prostitution. He'd lived in the monster infested part of city and there had to be some lonely monster girls willing to pay for company of handsome man. And Saitama was pretty cute, before he got bald.
I've had to compare various welfare systems across countries before, that anon's not entirely correct.
If you have a job in Japan, you'll automatically pay into an insurance pot, if you leave or get fired from your job, you get money monthly provided you're looking for another one. It's time limited however, but whilst you're in that system it pays fucking amazingly, up to something like 80% of former monthly wage.
After that if you're actually super poor then there's a fairly strict public assistance program which will keep you living, housed and healthy, but without much in the way of luxuries. Also in order to receive it you have to have a job(even if it's like street sweeping) or be unable to work at all.
The US has an absolutely shocking welfare system by the standards of nearly every country you can compare it to, It's almost perverse, although very interesting to study.
>forgetting the ones that were wiped out early
The only reason they did as well as they did was getting some good matchups by virtue of initially superior numbers, and because Tatsumaki got her head injury.
He lives in z city aka monster hotspot aka anime version of detroit.
Property is cheap as hell due to all the monster attacks in that area. Its even mentioned in one that someone moving to the safety of city A had to take out something crazy like a lifetime mortgage just to move there.
As far as food its not that expensive if you cook it yourself and as we can see saitama does his own cooking.
Also its just 100 pushups 100 situps 100 squats and 10km running everyday that still leaves plenty of time for a part time job.

What does this have to do with the rest of your post?
