I'll be quick and to the point.
Is One Punch Man going to end with the death of Saitama, as he will continue looking to test his own strength against the most powerful foes?
The parallels between the first and last episode of season 1 are pretty compelling for this argument.
What do you guys think
>He continues to look to test his own strength
What saitama are you talking about?
All he cares about is living his life and being a hero.If he fights someone strong or weak it doesnt matter to him because all that matters is if innocent people are safe from danger.
>All he cares about is living his life and being a hero.If he fights someone strong or weak it doesnt matter to him because all that matters is if innocent people are safe from danger.
Literally on the first chapter.
Anyway, I don't think he would put innocent people to danger, for the sake of the fun battle. You could see that in his fight vs Boros. Just when he was about to use his super power, which could destroy the Earth, Saitama got serious and finished the fight.
My point is, if someone would be strong enough to defeat Saitama, and he would be "the bad guy" then the Earth (potentially the whole Universe) is screwed.
On the other side, if he would be "the good guy" (let's say Blast is that strong), then he has no reason to kill Saitama in the first place.
>supporting evidence is from the anime, a derivative work
I got the impression, especially during the Boros fight, that Boros was actually the hero we were supposed to root for, he was certainly the underdog and the "I will defeat you" stuff, especially with the music, gave me that impression. I notice when I search it to see it again, I search for "Boros vs Saitama" - but normally I'd search "[good guy] vs [bad guy]".
Obviously Saitama is a good guy, it's just interesting that he's never gonna be the underdog
season 2 already good Lord i need to see fubuki in animated form
Saitama wants to be a hero, but according to his own definition of what a hero is, it's physically impossible for him to be one. He sees heroes people who risks their lives for others. This is why easy victories upset him, not because he's like Boros or saiyans who seek battle for its own sake.
Not his hair.
So are we getting another update next week also or has this update been delayed to next week? Can't read moon.
I can't see it
Fools will be fools
It has serious moments, just because it's filled with comedy and has comedic undertones that doesn't make it pure gag. A lot of themes hit on serious real-life issues or interactions.
>scenario 1: saitama and h.a. want to find the cause that creates monsters, which probably is god
>scenario 2: monsters keep getting stronger and stronger, to the point where humanity is constantly under a god threat level
>scenario 3: the true boss is a traitorous cabal organization within h.a.
>scenario 4: one has no fucking idea what he is doing, might keep the comic undefinitely
>scenario 5: one has no fucking idea what he is doing, kills himself because he cannot handle the responsibility of giving an appropriate ending to such an overhyped series
He will finally have a good fight, but upon victory will become God and become even more bored, being both all-powerful and omnipotent, missing his days as a guy who despite his extreme power could at least enjoy a humble lifestyle somehow.
>then there's this retard who takes a gag manga seriously.
>the webcomic doesn't take itself as seriously
Let me guess.
>Its drawn badly, therefore you're not suppose take it seriously
Do you think the same of Mob Psycho 100? You can tell whether the webcomic is being serious or not. ONE uses more detail, dark shading, etc. to indicate whether a scene is meant to be interpreted as being serious. In fact, the shift in tone between serious and comedic scenes adds to the humor.
All the business involving the HA. Dramatic moments like Licenseless Rider's sacrafice, Boros last words, Garou wrecking most of the S class heroes his whole Hero Hunt shit etc. Several plot threads. All examples of serious attempts at story telling in the series.
This whole "OPM is never meant to be taken seriously" just sounds like retarded mental gymnastics to separate oneself from the shonen kiddies who get a kick out of the series,
Nice counter arguement.
