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.
>>137326444 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.
>>137326744 >Characters must have a 'black-and-white' personality Maybe the writing would be good for you if the manga has the same 'unique' weeaboo characters from every other manga/anime ever? >shy girl >tsundere girl >moe girl And so on.
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.
Is shit like >straight up bullshitting Genos >fighting carelessly (see Marugori) >using Charanko despite the guy asking him not to do anything stupid >dine and dashing >getting ready to fight Flash because he thought he's a monster >casually destroying HA's new security system because he decided to adopt two Dragon levels 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.
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)
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?
>>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.
>>137335708 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.
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.
>>137336976 is that not true for every piece of media, whether show or comic or game? as soon as something loses it's niche appeal and gets popular publicly, hate starts building up for it, especially on this website.
that being said, i haven't really seen anyone say it's a bad show, because it isn't
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.
>>137336976 i can tolerate the animeonly shitposter since taste is subjective. but what trigger me most is seeing ONE purist suddenly shitting on OPM anime relentlessly and jerking off to the upcoming MOB anime as their saviour. they nitpick all the smallest thing they can find just to shit on OPM because its no longer "niche"and no more sekrit club sanctuary for them.
