Why does Saitama want fame in some episodes, but in others he is the most humble person in anime history?
>>
>>137326107
he said it himself dunno where ; he doesn't really care but some appreciation would be fucking nice
>>
Because this manga/anime is way more complex than the weeaboo shit /a/ is used to.

Yes, what he has shown and done contradicts what he wants. He wanted to become a superhero and he wanted fans and fame.

Saitama has been shown to be very humble, as he purposefully let the masses turn against him, for the sake of the defeated heroes to be given credit for their efforts; claiming that they have weakened the Sea King before his arrival. He did the same for the police in the Special Chapter, dressing as one of them and killed a monster, though he would had gain much fame had he revealed who he actually was. He also didn't mind that King took credit for all of his achievements.

All of that above contradicts him wanting fame. He lets others have the glory instead of him.

Humoring boros, and wanting to go through Genus's 8 levels are things that a humble person would do.

Just like in real life, people are complex. Sorry if Saitama isn't a guy who just want fame and nothing else, or just be a humble as fuck guy like the old wise men in every single weeaboo shit anime that is never greedy.

I think part of it is that he doesn't seem to have a good grasp of scale. No matter how big of a villain he faces, he can't understand why it's a big deal. Like what, is he going to brag about defeating Sonic? That scrub (from his perspective) is going to be his ticket to fame? He barely even counts as a villain (again, from Saitama's perspective).
If there were a legit villain that could even begin to meaningfully oppose him, maybe he would take pride in that victory and want to be known for it. But some minor baddy, he might as well give credit to someone who actually tried, even if he ended up doing most of the work. And to him, every baddy is a minor baddy.

Or it's just bad writing and the retard writer kept forgetting which direction he wanted to go.

Because he's not emotionless and his mood actually changes. He snaps sometimes. It hurts like a bitch when you've been hero'ing for years, taking care of big-ass threats, but no one knows who you are. That said fame is not CRUCIAL to him because he doesn't give a shit about ranks in HA for instance and hasn't bitched about being unpopular ever since Sanic dissed him and he joined HA. He just doesn't want to be completely unknown. He deserves SOME credit at least, come on.

Saitama is not 100% selfless saint material, he's only human.
>>
He'd like some surface-level appreciation like a few fan letters and whatnot but not at the expense of the other heroes. This is why he pretended to be a piece of shit after killing the Sea King because that fat fuck was turning everyone against the others who did their best to beat him.
>>
Saitama idolizes heroes. He prioritizes that ideal over his own want for fame. Which is why he lets others take credit for his actions for the sake of protecting the image of heroes as a whole.

Except when the manga tries to make him the the most moral person around that sets everyone he encounters straight with his "simple wisdom".

He's kind of got all the worst traits of superman and Goku rolled into one guy.

all instances of him being a very moral and wise person too? Saitama is pretty wacky and not at all selfless. He doesn't magically heal everyone he meets either. Look at Sanic and Tats, for fuck's sake.

I find it so fucking hilarious that Saitama called Flashy Jobber a monster but was able to tell Garou is a human with no killing intent from an attack that looked much more devastating.

FF was seriously trying to cut him down because Saitama outblitzed him the first time. Crazy runs in the family I guess.
>>
>>137326107
It's pretty obvious

We all want to get rich, but would you accept becoming rich in a way that makes your entire neighborhood become poor?

yeah I know you fucking souless shits would say yes, but most people would feel bad about becoming rich that way and want to become rich in a way that doesn't harm others. The same with Saitama, he wants fame but not if it means bringing others down (if he took credit those two times it would have discredited lower ranking heroes and police men)
>>
Next (One) chapter when?
>>
>>137331560
ONE is busy helping with Mob's anime adaptation at the moment so the answer is: even later than you'd expect.

UK said Mob is on a short hiatus (about a month). It's safe to assume OPM won't be updated until late March (at least) either.

Saitama is like a mod of 4chan.

He does it for FREE. But sometimes he wants some appreciation for all the shitposting he removed and people he banned. He doesn't get it though, everyone thinks he's a fag. He's continuing his work regardless, thinking he's a true hero who can ONE BUTTON BAN people.

On a similar note, why wasn't Saitama having the time of his fucking life fighting against Boros? Here's a guy, the strongest he's ever encountered, who is mostly unfazed by Saitama's blows for much of the fight and can hold his own against him for far, far longer than any other opponent.
Saitama should have been fucking ecstatic that he could fight Boros, and yet he seemed just as bored as with every other monster earlier. Why? He actually had to get kind of serious to kill Boros, so why wasn't he as happy as he was during the dream in the first volume?
>>
>shit writing
>its a gag manga. don't take it seriously

Or it simply could be that Saitama wanted fame but not at the expense of others. Christ /a/. The scene with the neet could not have made that anymore obvious.

OPM is supposed to be comedy gone super. Why are DBZ fags so ass pained from this?

Because he only had to put in slightly more strength than usual. He was far from going all out, Boros even pointed that out.

>check all images with ice cream
Fuck you captcha, now I want ice cream.
>>
>>137335670
>why wasn't Saitama having the time of his fucking life fighting against Boros
Because the difference between Saitama and Boros' power level is about the same as the difference between Saitama and every other character in the series added to him. The only reason Boro lasted so long was because Saitama decided to let him live out his dream.
>who is mostly unfazed by Saitama's blows for much of the fight
Saitama's first punch sends him flying, covers him in blood, and rips open a mouth on him. His normal consecutive punches blow his body to pieces/a bloody splatter in the anime. His serious punch killed him.
>>
>>137335670
In the dream Saitama was actually getting hurt; being able to feel pain reinvigorated his will to fight (knowing that he was in for an actual challenge). He felt alive again in his dream. Sure, Boros was able to withstand multiple punches, but he was unable to hurt Saitama in the slightest.

Maybe it's because their bored. As much as I love watching shitposters go at it, it's easy bait. There are children lurking here. Akin to liking comedy, they'd enjoy it. Personally, I think Shitposting should never end. It's what makes 4chan, 4chan. But this is my theory. I don't know.

Saitama falls in love with a girl.

Unable to confess, he is gifted by a deus ex machina with the girl's phone number. Never minding the strange area code, he immediately calls her, and is overjoyed to find out that she has a crush on him as well. But, the next day, when he recounts the previous day's confessions to the girl, he realizes the girl he called doesn't exist in this universe at all. She is One Punch Man's alternate universe counterpart that's genderbent, One Punch Woman, who has fallen in love with her own male self.

Hijinks ensue after Saitama punches a hole to the alternate dimension in order to conquer the heart his female self. While the two finds their way into their respective dimensions, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other and question the NATURE of STRENGTH.

dude has a shitty grasp on what he wants out of life like a lot of people do.

the glory vs mediocrity dichotomy is explored in greater depth in Mob Psycho. I think ONE is struggling between his personal wish for greatness, exhibited by the fact he creates overpowered main characters, and the Japanese collectivist culture of hammering down nails that stick out.

I think King is pretty based.

Think about it, sure it's kind of shit how he gets paid by the HA to take credit for things people assume he did.

But even when the UFO crashed he actually turned up.

he doesn't have powers, he just helps if he can.
even if he's pissing his pants or seconds away from a heart attack.

also interested in Pig God and Engine Knight
