One Punch Man 96 is translated.
Someone dump it. Too tired.
geez what's so wrong about asking something? you are bitter ppl that you are, anywho I found out I was reading the jump remake, now another question though, the story changes between the original and the remake?
>saitama is A class
It's about fucking time
I swear to god ONE is scaling the threats to saitama's class letter
I'll bet anything that this arc's threat will only be worth half a punch, and not even half a serious punch.
will the big boss finally match saitama when he reaches rank SS? You know there will be an SS Saitama when
ifthe association fully recognizes his strength
The hero association is going to get bigger and bigger and stronger and more influential, probably primarily through Metal Knight and his weapons. Eventually they'll do away with heroes entirely and automate, and then they'll turn evil and the heroes will have to bring down the association itself, probably in a hero vs hero civil war type setup.
not to face her. maybe she was recovered or something and is in a certain state where they can speak to each other. so shes scared she might reawaken her powers and have to fight her again if things go south. which might not exactly happen for certain.
>Saitama and King playing vidya
>King gets distracted for a brief second and Saitama wins his first and only match against King
>Saitama yells so loudly and excitedly that everyone in town hears his victory over King
>King spends some time depressed that he lost to a newbie
>everyone misunderstands and Saitama is seen as a hero stronger than the legendary King
Pffttt, caped baldy can't even win, everything he's done is by accident and by cheating, not a fluke.
King has gotten to the top through hard work! Unlike this poser wannabe.
I'm sure King is doing undercover work which is why he's talking with Saitama.
I find the depiction of the Hero Association really interesting, in that it's mostly detrimental to getting actual heroics done. It's all commitee decisions and popularity contests and it's bogged down by internal politics. And now they're making heroes into gloryfied bodyguards for the rich. Can't wait to see where this goes.
Right now I wonder who Fubuki is meeting. My first thought was maybe Sweet Mask so she can become an A-class, but that's just a guess.
Wait, I'm confused? Who's Caped Baldy? Did King really see the whole thing and realize that the robots detected monsters? What about Fubuki? What could she be meeting that her worthless mob of B-class MiBs would actually pose a threat to?
Caped Baldy is Saitama's superhero name given to him when he joined the Hero Association.
King likely didn't see the whole thing but realized what was happening and used his status to bail him out of a bad situation that needed explaining.
Who knows what Fubuki is doing right now. It's far too early to tell.
>being butthurt over trivial things
Why can't people on this board enjoy anything anymore? Sorry if not everyone is as perfectly autistic as you. I just enjoy helping out another OPM fan.
I can only imagine how empty your life must be to react to something like that. I honestly feel bad for you.
ONE never stopped working on OPM. It's just that he's super slow with updates thanks to primarily working on Psycho Pass (which is pretty damn good). So expect new updates to happen in six months.
I just.... It's called one punch man because he can win every fight with one punch.
People don't realize this, and thus "caped baldy"
Did you even read the manga?
Side note- if people actually figure it out ie the absurd amount of circumstance and straight up lying that happens to get to this point is looked past, everyone will try to fight him and or kill him.
If they knew he could probably destroy the earth with a kick or three, they would immediately make him a God+ level threat, and put the highest bounty physically possible on his head.
Also, Most superpowered beings get off on fighting tougher people.
your face when you realize the prophesy of the destruction of the world foretold is actually saitama going rogue when he realizes how corrupt hero's association is.
because there's no threat to earth if saitama doesnt become the "bad guy"
Pig God will save us.
I'm sure he's bulking right now and storing more energy.
No, S Rank is for all the people that are very powerful but retarded.
Nobody besides them really cares about S Rank. A Rank is a bigger deal as far as the public and most heroes are concerned.
Which is why Saitama should've been in S originally with his records and Genos in A. But I'm guessing the author just hadn't thought that through at that point in time and decided to go for the more humorous option.
>My first thought was maybe Sweet Mask so she can become an A-class
She doesn't have to go through him for that. He's only a cunt to people trying to get into S class.
>nobody cares about S rank
I'm sorry, what?
No, Saitama is just "above" petty stuff.
When he broke the Level counter he also broke his world perception.
Besides for Saitama being a hero is a pure hobby, he does nt want to impress anyone or shw off.
I guess I totally just made up this page then.
S Rank are celebrities of the heroes.
It is the opposite of "no one really cares".
A class are more down to earth heroes with local fanclubs.
And this one too. Definitely just 100% fanfiction.
It's not like ONE could've ever changed his mind at any point at all! He's thought up every single joke he ever intends to make and has everything planned out perfectly.
And he doesn't scribble OPM in his spare time when he's on the toilet or anything, nope, he treats this as his full time job spending every waking minute refining every single minute detail, making sure he never ever accidentally contradicts something he might have done before that probably wasn't even important.
No, they just don't care for meeting their quotas.
>A Rank is a bigger deal as far as the public and most heroes are concerned.
"Hmph... A Rank, huh..."
"They'd be more effective than a doberman, I guess."
Yeah it sure seems like they're held in high regard, especially when a group of robots built by an S-rank is respected more than the entire bracket of them.
>Starts at 32
Do you have it from the very beginning? I only read it on Manga Trades (rip) and put off downloading the chapters for a very long time.
>Yeah it sure seems like they're held in high regard, especially when a group of robots built by an S-rank is respected more than the entire bracket of them.
For a 24 hour job, of course an automated system would be more reliable and wanted than 39 chucklefucks that may or may not be available at a moment's notice.
Why don't you just admit you were wrong and that your claim that S-Rank is supposedly a big deal with the general public has no ground whatsoever in the source material, instead of responding like an embarrassed 8th grader?
It's okay to be wrong on the internet, you know.
Nobody even recognized him until he was the only one standing next to a Mysterious Being.
Completely unlike Sweet Mask, the top A Ranker, who's a major celebrity appearing in movies and talk shows daily.
Sweet Mask is a hero first and foremost.
He's made that very clear with his twisted sense of justice, and even swallowing his massive pride/ego to let Child Emperor come up with the plan while he distracted the Monster's Association.
Other A-class heroes are also very popular
Those pages have nothing to do with anything. You were the one who sperged out and acted like I'm suppose to play along.
I just said you're a fucking idiot if you don't understand why ONE made Saitama C-Class and Genos S-Class to begin with, and you should just shut the fuck up with your headcanon because no one cares about your fantasies.
TL;DR You are not a better writer, your criticisms against ONE are irrelevant, and you have shit reading comprehension.
So where are all of King's movies and talk shows then?
That's right: nowhere. Because they only care about King and other S rankers when there's something that's actively trying to kill them.
You seriously think people are going to worship a gay rapist, an obese neckbeard, a bratty christmas cake, a delinquent, etc. over traditional heroes like everyone shown in A Class?
>not realizing I'm using the word delusions in the context of you believing I was someone else and raging at me
Just stop. You're embarrassing. Like Tank Top Tiger + Black Hole embarrassing.
>I just said you're a fucking idiot if you don't understand why ONE made Saitama C-Class and Genos S-Class to begin with
>You are not a better writer, your criticisms against ONE are irrelevant, and you have shit reading comprehension.
I clearly know why ONE did what he did: for humor. And nowhere did I ever claim was I a better writer than ONE, that's something you pulled out of your ass from nowhere.
Stop projecting your shit reading comprehension onto me when I clearly said:
>But I'm guessing the author just hadn't thought that through at that point in time and decided to go for the more humorous option.
Nowhere does that even imply ONE is a bad writer or that was even a bad decision, because OPM in it's early stages was a complete comedy.
Sweet Mask is the face of the Hero Association.
I'm not sure how you get "A-rank is a bigger deal than S-rank" from those pages. A-rank is the consolation prize for people who aren't talented enough to be S-rank.
>Because they only care about King and other S rankers when there's something that's actively trying to kill them.
Because that's the only time most of them show their faces. Namedrop Metal Knight and everyone in the room trusts the technology you're talking about. A-ranks don't command that respect.
>I clearly know why ONE did what he did: for humor.
You just proved you didn't. That's only one of the reasons.
>And nowhere did I ever claim was I a better writer than ONE
The moment you claimed your shitty idea was better is when you implied you knew better than him. Again, based on your childish headcanon understanding.
You can make a straw poll with your idea if you want, and even if you rig it you'd still lose. That was how stupid your idea was claiming Saitama should be switched with Genos in rank.
>Sweet Mask is the face of the Hero Association.
And he isn't S-Rank. The top of the Hero Association, the image they try to project is A-Rank.
>I'm not sure how you get "A-rank is a bigger deal than S-rank" from those pages.
Oh I don't know maybe the:
>This is the COMMON SENSE circulating not only between the heroes, BUT THROUGHOUT THE WORLD AS WELL.
>Namedrop Metal Knight and everyone in the room trusts the technology you're talking about. A-ranks don't command that respect.
Because we haven't seen any A-rank heroes specialize in tech yet. Metal Knight and Child Emperor aren't just heroes, they're also inventors and geniuses on top of it: and that's where they get there "respect" from. Do you think King or Alloy would command the same respect for some random invention they made just because they're S Rank?
That is what I just said, you're bad at reading.
It was funny but the way this is going, I'll stop replying.
He didn't kill Rider but he did a number on him. He might not come back for a while and if he does it will be in a wheelchair.
>That's only one of the reasons.
Oh? And what other reasons would those be?
>The moment you claimed your shitty idea was better is when you implied you knew better than him
What the fuck are you even talking about? Where have I given a single idea or suggestion to change the story?
Did you seriously misinterpret:
>Which is why Saitama should've been in S originally with his records and Genos in A.
as me wanting to change the entire story up to this point (which wouldn't have fucking happened if Saitama was in S to begin with)?
Here's the key word in that sentence: WHY.
Did you miss that? It's giving an explanation for WHY something SHOULD'VE happened from the universe's own logic. But I didn't, and I'm not bitching about it because I like the way the story has progressed.
>Do you think King or Alloy would command the same respect for some random invention they made just because they're S Rank?
They'd command respect for their specialty you retard.
>And he isn't S-Rank. The top of the Hero Association, the image they try to project is A-Rank.
Sweet Mask is legit mid S-Rank tier in strength and he chose to stay in A-Rank himself for the sake of deciding who is being promoted to S-Rank. This means that Sweet Mask acknowledge that the S-Rank is important enough that he should personnally check who is in.
What you don't get is that people aim to be A-Rank not because it's the most prestigious rank, but because you can only become S-Rank if you are a special being and everyone know that.
>They'd command respect for their specialty you retard.
Exactly, and that has nothing to do with their Hero Rank.
Metal Knight would command just the same respect in technology if he was a fucking C Class Hero. It doesn't matter that he's S.
Saitama couldn't be anything but C-Rank because of his shit performance in the writing test and Genos got into the S-Rank because of his perfect score. There is no room for "should've" here
>Sweet Mask is legit mid S-Rank tier in strength and he chose to stay in A-Rank himself for the sake of deciding who is being promoted to S-Rank
S-Rank clearly isn't defined in terms of strength. Otherwise their "strongest" King wouldn't be at 7.
And Sweet Mask has shit all for who actually gets in S-Rank, it all comes down to the association themselves. You really think he would let a disgusting faggot like Pig God in, who's essentially the polar opposite of himself?
or it's you guys trolling the fuck out of a guy who proved in the very beginning he was right but forgot about that
there was also a slight misunderstanding between you guys, but thats another story
>Saitama couldn't be anything but C-Rank because of his shit performance in the writing test and Genos got into the S-Rank because of his perfect score. There is no room for "should've" here
Are you retarded or something?
Saitama broke all the Association's records. S-Rank was literally made exactly for people like him: the ones with questionable common sense and judgement, but capable of handling massive threats all by himself.
Genos, who was confirmed weaker than Saitama in their testing, also answered more in-line with their standard justice thoughts and should've put in A, like all other traditional heroes.
>Metal Knight would command just the same respect in technology if he was a fucking C Class Hero
How dense can you be? His technology wouldn't be on that level if he was C Class. It's especially because that his technology commands respect that he is S-Rank
>S-Rank clearly isn't defined in terms of strength. Otherwise their "strongest" King wouldn't be at 7.
Rank is is defined by feats and feats are defined by strength. It's just acknowledged that King could do much more if he wanted.
>And Sweet Mask has shit all for who actually gets in S-Rank
He purposely wanted to stay at the top of A-Rank even if he could move to S-Rank because now the only way for someone to go S-Rank is to be stronger/have more feats that Sweet Mask. That's how he is securing it
The test isn't only physical, retard. That's only half of the exam. By failing the writing test, the association judged that he has a poor sense of justice and responsability.
Now I'm pretty sure that you don'T actually remember what you read
>Rank is defined by feats and feats are defined by strength.
Then why does a hero who's been shown to constantly doing shit like Watchdogman have a lower rank than Darkshine who sits in the gym and lifts all day?
>He purposely wanted to stay at the top of A-Rank even if he could move to S-Rank because now the only way for someone to go S-Rank
And that's obviously bullshit. They value his input to a certain degree, but if the association really wants someone in a certain class, they will put them there anyways. Otherwise Pig God wouldn't have been in S.
>the association judged that he has a poor sense of justice and responsability.
You mean just like pretty much every other S Rank hero, who didn't do shit for the association and meandered about in the lower ranks doing whatever the hell they wanted?
>not knowing about petty politics and PR maneuvers
They justify Watchdogman's position by saying that the monsters in his city aren't that strong. Also, it reinforces the idea that S-Rank is more symbolic than A-Rank
>Otherwise Pig God wouldn't have been in S
Pig God could have been S-Rank before Sweet Mask, hence he can't do shit. And still, now that Sweet Mask is the top of the A-Rank, the only way to move to S-Rank is to prove yourself more worthy than him. Don't forget that the Hero Association is a business and Sweet Mask is their spokesman, so he does have a say in this. Another reason why Genos managed to be in S-Rank is because they could bank on his appearance and make teenage girls buy Genos related products.
>You mean just like pretty much every other S Rank hero
There is a difference between saying bullshit in a test to make it seem like you are a bro and being retarded enough to not know what the association wants you to write in the said test.
>Also, it reinforces the idea that S-Rank is more symbolic than A-Rank
Yes. Which is why they aren't ranked according to strength or deeds. Because the association gives less of a shit about them. They want them for their strength and just throw them all together, only making minor adjustments here and there to suit their mood.
>now that Sweet Mask is the top of the A-Rank, the only way to move to S-Rank is to prove yourself more worthy than him
And if you did, they obviously won't listen if Sweet Mask wanted them to stay in A-Class. His opinion isn't as highly valued as he seems to think it is.
>There is a difference between saying bullshit in a test to make it seem like you are a bro and being retarded enough to not know what the association wants you to write in the said test.
But there's not much of a difference between saying bullshit in a test, and then acting on that same bullshit and doing whatever the fuck you feel like while still taking out higher class threats. Just like Metal Bat and Darkshine and Watchdogman and Saitama did. And yet Saitama wasn't put in S class, despite showing all the same characteristics as S class heroes.
Not that it was a new thing.
I don't want to argue anymore, especially considering that I'm not the guy you were initially debating with. My point is that the S-Ranks are stronger and more valuable than A-Ranks as well as the positions in which Genos and Saitama ended in makes perfect sens.
>My point is that the S-Ranks are stronger and more valuable than A-Ranks
Sure. But the public at large cares more about the A-Ranks. Not hard to see why when you've got people like Pri Pri in S.
> positions in which Genos and Saitama ended in makes perfect sens.
Only in terms of having comedy and arbitrary progression. As far as their actual attributes and characteristics go, Saitama should've been in S and Genos in A.
In real life, people care more about celebrities than world leaders, so fair enough
But I do maintain that the way the admission test was made, it's perfectly fine that Genos is S and Saitama is C, regardless of the comedy. Hey, maybe you should apply in the committee to change the qualifications
>But I do maintain that the way the admission test was made, it's perfectly fine that Genos is S and Saitama is C
Really? It's perfectly fine to you that someone that was actually S rank, and had showed every single one of the qualities of S rank members, got put in C rank instead?
We don't know what Saitama wrote exactly. Based on what we know about him, the association probably saw him as a very powerful retard. While it's true that a lot of S-Rank heroes seems like they don't really care about justice, Saitama appears as someone devoid of any motivation and drive. Hell, he being a heroe is a hobby to him. If I was in the committee I would probably think that Saitama doesn't actually care and if he is worth his physical score, he will work his way to the top anyway.
And again, Darkshine had shown very little motivation to be a hero either. He just wanted to lift and show off his strength sometimes. And he was immediately put into S.
Saitama should've immediately been put into S after the meteor, and especially after Sea King. But because we need some form of character progression he wasn't.
>They just thought he cheated on the physical part. They outright say that in the manga.
No, only some people think that. One of the director's very clearly believes in Saitama's physical abilities.
>question 1: a being made out of water,Dragon level threat,approaches.You're a C class hero. What do you do?
>I punch him.
>question 2: A giant meteor the size of a building will crash on the city at any moment. What do you do?
>Do a 50 m jump and punch through it.
>question 3: You're 30 km away from a demon level monster invasion. A S-class is there to help you. What do you do?
>I run there in full speed,it would take me a minute,maybe less. The S-class will catch up to me later.
Yeah I can understand why he was C-class.
The association though that he cheated on his tests too.
>Saitama should've immediately been put into S after the meteor, and especially after Sea King.
So you think that the Hero Association is incompetent, possibly corrupt, and making things worse just by existing? I agree. In particular, their current genocide posture needs reconsideration.
>pretending to be retarded for hours while making walls of text spending more time than everyone else combined
Doesn't that kind of ruin the point of pretending to be retarded in the first place?
Why would he do that? For what purpose?
That's different. Darkshine at least shows that he cares about popularity and improving himself. Saitama is just looks like an empty shell. You know very well why he wasn't put into S-Rank after those incidents. It seems like you are missing the point that OPM is a parody of shounen. Saitama's progression stopped in the first chapter. Moving in ranks is not character progression.
That will teach me for waking up too early today
>question 1: a being made out of water,Dragon level threat,approaches.You're a C class hero. What do you do?
>I tear it apart with my psychic powers.
>question 2: A giant meteor the size of a building will crash on the city at any moment. What do you do?
>I stop it with my psychic powers.
>You're 30 km away from a demon level monster invasion. A S-class is there to help you. What do you do?
>I fly there immediately with my psychic powers.
>Here you go, S class rank 2.
Whatever bullshit Saitama wrote was backed up in his physical portion.
>Doesn't that kind of ruin the point of pretending to be retarded in the first place?
No, it's advanced pretension. Maybe he is preparing to be cast for a role as a retard in a movie/TV show and he is immersing in his character right now.
>guys,guys! The meteor that not even Metal Knight and Genos couldn't stop was destroyed by...Licenseless rider!
>you kidding? It's impossible!
>On a second thought,it wasn't Licenseless rider...
>It was a even lower hero!
>What? You know, I think that Metal knight and Genos did the most of the work. That C-class probably helped,but not that much.
>Yea,that seems more reasonable.
And what don't I get? That you faggots keep spouting bullshit? I get that very well, what I don't get is why you actually believe some of this stuff with how wrong it is.
>Darkshine at least shows that he cares about popularity and improving himself.
So? Saitama obviously does too, or he wouldn't have signed up to be a hero in the first place.
>Moving in ranks is not character progression.
It is for Saitama. Because like you said: he stopped progressing before the series even began. It's the easiest way to show that people are slowly starting to recognize him. If he was immediately put into S, everyone would be skeptical of him and he'd slowly rise to the upper ranks. As opposed to starting in C and showing very clear recognition when he moves up to B or A.
>We don't even know if Tatsumaki became S-Rank with the test
All heroes had to take the test. She probably joined before S rank was implemented and put in a high rank. Because she could back up her shit with actions. Just like Saitama could and did.
>conveniently ignoring that he had Genos AND Bang to back him up that he was the one who did pretty much everything
Yeah, I'm sure the HA considers a random eyewitness to be a much more reliable source on the event than S rank 3 that was actually part of it.
>All heroes had to take the test.
This is unlikely. Someone already established as the World's Greatest Psychic would have been too valuable a member to the early Hero Association.She would have been headhunted.
>So? Saitama obviously does too, or he wouldn't have signed up to be a hero in the first place.
I disagree, it's easy to think that Saitama registered because he was bored (that's half of the real reason anyway). And yet again, a lot of people thought that Saitama cheated. And still, he doesn't show the smae level of motivation at all. Saitama is more like "Eh, that would be nice, I guess" while Darkshine is more like "Fuck, I'm so good, the world need to know all about my goodness"
And now you're just baselessly speculating.
We don't know if Tatsumaki was widely known as the World's Greatest Psychic or not. And even if that was the case, it's still a dubious title, so I'm sure they'd want to immediately test what/how exactly her powers work, so she'd have to go through some kind of test anyways.
The only person we know that got scouted directly was King, and they attributed some of Saitama's past achievements to him, completely clearing the need for any kind of proof as far as they were concerned.
So you didn't even read the meteor arc? The one with Genos and Bang right there who couldn't do shit and watched helplessly as Saitama one-shotted the meteor?
>And yet again, a lot of people thought that Saitama cheated.
Yeah, other jealous heroes whose records he broke. People who actually matter didn't think he cheated, like the director who told Sneck he'd probably get overtaken by Saitama.
A hobby that he wants to be recognized. Otherwise he would've just stayed independent and keep bolstering King's record.
>Yeah, other jealous heroes whose records he broke. People who actually matter didn't think he cheated, like the director who told Sneck he'd probably get overtaken by Saitama.
The only persons that only matter in this are the members of the committee reviewing the tests and we don't know their position. THis debate is pointless in that regard
>The Hero Association wouldn't care if she actually has powers, when what they needed was her reputation for power.
Those are not mutually exclusive. Just because they needed her reputation doesn't mean that they aren't going to check if she actually has powers. Otherwise they wouldn't be able to make her their "final weapon."
>So you didn't even read the meteor arc? The one with Genos and Bang right there who couldn't do shit and watched helplessly as Saitama one-shotted the meteor?
Nothing says that they backed him up saying that Saitama did pretty much everything.
So why didn't he stay as an unknown NEET outside of the HA?
You're the one already assuming they're asking people about the meteor incident. Are you really going to further assume that they're only going to ask random civilians and completely ignore the heroes actually fucking involved like Genos or Bang?
Money was obviously not Saitama's motivator since he could get cash from Genos's rent.
The only reason he decided to go join the HA is because he was annoyed that nobody recognized him despite saving the world multiple times, and Genos saying you have to join or you only get recognized as a crazy person.
>Money was obviously not Saitama's motivator since he could get cash from Genos's rent.
He already said that he is not fond on the idea of being dependent to Genos. Also, you wrongly analyzed this. It only means that he is annoyed at people calling him crazy, not that he wants to be recognized for the sake of being popular. In the end, all he wants is doing his hobby and getting those sweet saturday sales
S rank is for retardedly strong people no matter how retarded/selfish/lazy they are, is a special rank you can't really aim for, also they don't have to fill their hero quota to stay in and shit. People don't aim to S rank because you just can't, you have to be special and get people ask to join it.
What the fuck are you on?
Sweet Mask clearly has less pull over the association that he thinks. He's a narcissistic, egotistical attention whore, of course he has an inflated sense of self worth than reality.
Do you really think just because someone says something it automatically makes it true?
I guess all the robots in this newest chapter just blew up for absolutely no reason at all like Saitama and King said.
Where has Genos shown S rank strength? He's a fucking jobber and always loses on screen. He aced the written part just like everyone else because he has the common sense not to write shit like "I don't care about being a hero: I'm only here so I can learn from Saitama how to become stronger and get revenge on some other cyborg."
>Everyone in S-rank is as strong as Tatsumaki
>Sweet Mask clearly has less pull over the association that he thinks. He's a narcissistic, egotistical attention whore, of course he has an inflated sense of self worth than reality.
Citations needed. What is known and insured is that Sweet Mask's opinion was asked for promoting heroes from c-class to b-class when Saitama was involved.
You truly are a strange guy.
>It only means that he is annoyed at people calling him crazy, not that he wants to be recognized for the sake of being popular.
He seemed to care far more about the "being unknown" part than "mistaken for bald terrorist" part.
Yeah. Like every S-class rank threat.
Pig God existing in S Rank for one.
>What is known and insured is that Sweet Mask's opinion was asked for promoting heroes from c-class to b-class when Saitama was involved.
Yes, and that's all. His opinion. It wasn't the be-all-end-all like he thinks it is. There are other committee members too. If someone took his A Class Rank 1 spot from him, and he told the association not to let him in S class they'd listen at all?
>Pig God existing in S Rank for one.
You could have said Metal bat,since Sweet mask explicitly said that he would have liked "trash" like him to not be S-rank.
Here you go.
Now prove that Sweet Mask thinks that Pig God is all of these things, otherwise he wouldn't accept him as a hero, let alone an S Rank one.
Are you retarded?
It very clearly says a hero must be tough, strong, and BEAUTIFUL at all times. Otherwise they aren't a hero.
Pig God isn't beautiful ever. So Sweet Mask must not consider him a hero. And yet there he, sitting on his fat ass in S Class, despite all of Sweet Mask's supposed influence in the association.
> you can only become S-Rank if you are a special being and everyone knows that
Pretty much this, it isn't that most people don't want to be S-rank.
It's because they know they can't make it.
It isnt fame or anything really that seperates S and A class, it's the fact that S-rank tier is crazy strong.
The idea behind S-rank is that they are the best.
And when I say best I mean far beyond talent, they have special abilities and they can use them.
Piggy was probably part of the original S class, so Mask never had a say. The only person we've ever known to enter S class from its original inception is Genos, and he skipped the entire rank system.
>Piggy was probably part of the original S class, so Mask never had a say
Exactly, so why does everyone think Sweet Mask holds all this power in the association?
He doesn't, he's just a self-important fag that thinks he has way more influence than he actually does. The association will do whatever they want in the end, even if it means Sweet Mask bitching at them.
Not to mention, he clearly said "No scandals" when saying Saitama could move, despite the fact that he basically was a walking one, with the public considering him a cheater.
Yeah, but the consensus seems to be he gets to determine who goes to S class or not.
Which isn't the case at all.
To get to S class anyways they'd have to steal his rank from him, so his opinion would matter for shit all there anyways.
You don't get it. Sweet Mask as the one who is at the top of the A-Rank becomes the standard for S-Rank, so he indirectly decides who is in and who isn't (unless you start in the S-Rank like Genos). As the spokesman and a huge celebrity, he has a say in some decisions.
>he's just a self-important fag that thinks he has way more influence than he actually does.
feels like staring into a mirror doesn't it
we can assume that since sweet mask took the A-class rank 1 seat, no one was able to get PROMOTED to s-class. He is doing exactly what he claimed.
Nobody implied that he has political power over S-class
Currently getting to S-class with rare exceptions requires reaching A-class rank 1 but you simply can't get this rank because overpowered asshole decided to stay there
So you're agreeing that if the association really wants someone in S class, they'll just put them in anyways, even if Sweet Mask doesn't like them?
As an aside, Sweet Mask most likely does approve of Genos, since he fits his image of 'strong, beautiful' whatever bullshit.
>we can assume that since sweet mask took the A-class rank 1 seat, no one was able to get PROMOTED to s-class
And that's the normal means. If the HA really wanted to promote someone directly to S from say C or B, they would do it. It's not like they haven't done it before when they originally created the rank.
Oh, you're talking about how he can't consider him a hero? We've been over this already.
Sweet Mask gave his definition of a hero. And Pig God doesn't follow that definition. Thus, Pig God can't be a hero according to Sweet Mask.
Can we stop talking about gay Sweet Mask and start talking about Tatsumaki's loli ass and thighs?
>And that's the normal means. If the HA really wanted to promote someone directly to S from say C or B, they would do it. It's not like they haven't done it before when they originally created the rank.
Citation needed. Related to promotions, not the entry exam.
Go back and re-read.
The majority of members were in lower ranks. Darkshine was the lowest among the C class. And they promoted him all the way up to S. They have absolutely no qualms with it.
>Did Sweet Mask say Pig god looked like Fuhrer Ugly?
ONE did in his art. Unless you're willing to completely disregard everything ONE has shown us visually, making everything non-canon, then Sweet Mask considers Pig God ugly.
>ONE did in his art.
Did he? I don't quite see it. Even if I did, this has no bearing about the canon. Can you prove Sweet Mask compared Pig God to Fuhrer Ugly? If not, you can't use that as an argument to back you up.
>Did he? I don't quite see it
>same eyes + eyebrows
>only difference is headshape, hair, and Pig God being much fatter
So you're just blind then. And since you're blind, you can't even read the manga, so nothing you say has anything of value regarding this conversation.
>Can you prove Sweet Mask compared Pig God to Fuhrer Ugly
He never said that, he said they're both drawn unattractive and that there are visual similarities between the two. He didn't say anything about Sweet Mask's own comparisons, but that Sweet Mask hates "ugliness" is canon as fuck and if you don't think he'd consider Pig God ugly, then yo, check yo' eyes, motherfucker.
Because he shits on Fuhrer Ugly for being ugly, without hearing a single word he had to say first.
So? Fuhrer Ugly and Pig God are drawn similarly. And if Sweet Mask considers Fuhrer Ugly ugly, the similar looking Pig God must also be ugly, regardless of what they actually look like.
Wow, don't get ahead of yourself. He finds Fhurer ugly, ugly. Ok. But that does not mean he finds Pig God ugly. Can you show me Sweet Mask either saying
1. Pig God is ugly
2. Pig God looks like Y (that I find ugly)
You have yet to produce any kind of evidence. I'm finding this very suspect now.
If you can't do that, then all you can state is
>Sweet Mask probably finds Pig God ugly
But basing your whole argument on such flimsy probability is so stupid, I don't know how you found in yourself the strength to argue about Sweet Mask for hours.
Sweet Mask doesn't need to tell us that Pig God and Fuhrer Ugly look alike because the author already does through his art.
The fact that you're disregarding ONE's source material throws whatever you're trying to say out the window, since we're not talking about the same series anymore.
Two people can look alike and you can still consider one ugly and the other one beautiful/okay. Hell, maybe the only thing tha tmakes Sweet Mask consider Fuhrer Ugly to be ugly is the shape of his head. Your argument still amounts to nothing more than speculations.
Fuhrer Ugly and Pig God are drawn in a manner which makes them look similar
Sweet Mask has made it clear that he finds Fuhrer Ugly ugly.
Ergo, it is likely that Sweet Mask considers Pig God to be, at the least, not beautiful.
Thus, Pig God does not conform to Sweet Mask's stated position on what a hero should be.
That is neither flimsy reasoning, given the single assertion required to make the logic hold together, nor particularly complex.
Nuh-uh, the post who sparked this conversations were made at 4:00 local hour. It's now 7:00. That's three hours.
Anyways, The author isn't Sweet Mask, so I do not know why you think Sweet Mask must share the author opinion. If Sweet Mask did not clearly state that Pig God was ugly, you can only assume he does. And that's what you based your whole argument on. Not very convincing.
>But basing your whole argument on such flimsy probability is so stupid
Not nearly as stupid as basing my argument on ignoring the manga.
Then how come when he thought of ugmon, one he visualized has a completely normal headshape?
Where's the headcannon?
It's canon that Pig God and Fuhrer Ugly look similar. It's canon that Fuhrer Ugly is ugly.
It's canon that Sweet Mask thinks he has control over S Class. It's canon that Pig God is in anyways.
>Nuh-uh, the post who sparked this conversations were made at 4:00 local hour. It's now 7:00. That's three hours.
And I haven't been here for more than 15 minutes. You realize there's more than two people in this thread, right? Or do you refuse that possibility since you can't prove it?
All the characters in OPM are drawn in a manner that makes them look similar.
Sweet Mask made it clear, that he finds Führer Ugly, ugly.
Ergo, it is likely that Sweet Mask considers everyone, at the very least, not beautiful.
I can use my imagination too!
You''re three steps away.
>A hero should be
>Therefore, Sweet Mask has no sway on wether or not you get to be S
>Therefore, he talks out of his ass when he says he decides who get to be S-class
>And therefore, him being the most popular, means A-class > S-class
All this based on the assumption Sweet Mask finds Pig god ugly because he found a monster to be ugly. If you were reaching harder, you'd be on the moon.
>Nuh-uh, the post who sparked this conversations were made at 4:00 local hour. It's now 7:00. That's three hours.
Those are 2 different people, retard.
I guess that's not surprising, since you actually think Pig God and Fuhrer Ugly don't look similar, despite ONE deliberately drawing them too.
I'm completely astounded at how stupid you are.
Why the fuck are you trying to connect this Sweet Mask shit, to the already in canon assertion that the general public thinks A Class > S Class?
Not the same guy, faggot.
>Then how come when he thought of ugmon, one he visualized has a completely normal headshape?
Because ONE can't draw for shit and Saitama's head shape changes every other panel
>The majority of members were in lower ranks. Darkshine was the lowest among the C class. And they promoted him all the way up to S. They have absolutely no qualms with it.
you're implying sweet mask was already in charge during that time. But the s-class always talk about sweet mask as if he's a late comer, not their senpai.
I don't remember saying that Tatsumaki and Darkshine look exactly alike.
My point is that Pig God and Führer Ugly could look completely different and as long as there is no mention of them looking alike, it stays like this
>I don't remember saying that Tatsumaki and Darkshine look exactly alike.
>The author draws almost everyone to look similar
>They all look the same
>everyone EXCEPT Tatsumaki and Darkshine that is XD
Nice save anon, you sure showed him!
Okay then, this guy said it and I didn't see him. But it doesn't change the fact that One draws faces to be often similar. Also, taking this particular answer and applying it to everyone is still twisting things to fit your headcanon
>Okay then, this guy said it and I didn't see him
So you're a confirmed ignorant faggot and nobody has to ever listen to anything you say. Gotcha.
>But it doesn't change the fact that One draws faces to be often similar.
You don't need to keep proving you're an ignorant faggot.
>So you're a confirmed ignorant faggot and nobody has to ever listen to anything you say. Gotcha.
Wow, because I didn't see every posts in the thread, it makes the entire idea and argument moot. I'm pretty sure that there is no logical fallacy here. But you sure like to use that excuse to not bring any counterpoint
>But you sure like to use that excuse to not bring any counterpoint
Yeah, because it makes it so I don't have to deal with retards like yourself who just completely ignore the source material in favor of their own bullshit.
Wow,what a thread.
Are we seriously discussing about if this fucking guy is ugly? it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out.
Holy shit a new chapter?
Why did ONE change the "cover" image though?
Fubuki hasn't learned a thing.
There's the original webcomic by ONE, which is the one with dubious art, and 96 chapters out at the moment.
The one with Murata Yuusuke on art is the Jump remake, and is much prettier to look at. I'd suggest going with that one. And if you're really curious about what happens next, pick up the original from the end of that.
Ah yeah, forgot that Genos had to bribe him. Saitama's a weird guy. I've been envisioning him as a stoic stoner so I didn't really pay much mind to the little things (like the mosquito incident). ONE hasn't really expanded on his character, but I guess he isn't as one-dimensional as the premise makes him out to be.
Considering Tornado joining the Hero association, my guess is that Fubuki joined first seeking fame, and then her sis bailed her out when she bit off more than she could chew, resulting in the Association recruiting Tornado directly into S class.
I only have this. We need a higher quality version.
Actually, it doesn't seems like Saitama doesn't want to be popular, besides being kind to other people thus lowering his reputation.
It's more that he's so much not used to be popular or something like that that he seems to have very little self estim about this, and doesn't get that his crazy strengh should make him the most respected/feared person in the world.
Are there any other lingering plot points other than these right now?
Genos + Metal Knight and that other robot guy
S-class rank one guy
Pig God doing weird stuff
Sweet Mask's whole deal
If Sweet Mask's deal is important enough for you to be a lingering plot point, there's a whole bunch.
Saitamas ranking and hidden power level.
The nature of the "unlocking" or whatever the hell that is.
What happened to Garou.
Tank top master.
>Tank top master.
He's a rather chill guy,he just have dickish followers. He was about killing Garou because he sensed he was evil, and stopped anyway when Licenseless rider asked him to,even if other tanktops were disagreeing.
S-class rank one will turn out to be a villain or job against the next bad guy.
I was more referring to the whole vendetta his brothers have against Saitama.
I'm sure it will be explored, or at least, given the level of depth this manga goes into "exploring" things, mentioned in a chapter somewhere.
Saitama wanted that drink, It's not Genos's fault that it tasted like shit man
>S-class rank one is just Bang's brother who did the same thing as Saitama and got unlimited strength
>he got his high position easily with his feats,probably defeating a god level threat
>over time, he became apathetic as hell,and let the other heroes do his job
>he will get called when Saitama becomes a villain
His real hero name is One-punch man
So, are Genos and Saitama legit friends by now? or does Saitama still see Genos as some weirdo?
They mentioned that if humanity is in enough danger, Blast will show up to help.
He'll be a good way to show how powerful the next threat will be. He didn't show up for Boros or Garou, but oh look he's here now, that means THIS guy must be really dangerous!
and then he'll job until Saitama shows up
Well, Genos IS still some weirdo.
But yeah, they hang out, eat lunch together, do room mate stuff like shopping. Saitama's naturally a standoffish kind of guy, but that's more or less being friends.
Fubuki, King and Bang all have mad dosh so it's covered. Genos probably claws Saitama's door at night until he falls asleep.
I wonder how will Sperm deal with Saitama's gang coming to visit, Genos is probably not living there anymore since he'd recognize Sperm at first sight and he could sense his presence.
I'm hoping that will be exactly it. Sperm is all happy that he pulled a fast on the heroes and he got a new place to hide right under their nose, and then Genos comes home and just kills him insantly. Off-screen of course.
That's probably not what's gonna happen though.
