How is Saitama being OP as fuck supposed to advance the story exactly?
>>
>>133121605
His struggle is not one of winning fights, but of gaining recognition for his actions. He is a literal godlike being that is unrecognized due to circumstance or bureaucratic bullshit. No one even knows how powerful he is due to rank bullshit
>>
>>133121605
He advances the story by destroying the monster that will end the story.
>>
>>133121605
Saitama is the viewpoint character and technically the protagonist, but he functions more like a philosophical antagonist to everyone else in the manga. Don't think of it as a linear battleshonen story, but more like a fresh take on the 'wise old man's travels' or something.
>>
>>133121677
But he doesn't really care about being recognized, he just wants to have some fun and to be able to pay his rent.
>>
Blast (ブラスト, Burasuto) is a S-Class, rank 1, superhero for the Heroes Association.

are they ever going to show this character? i dont expect him to be anything new for saitama though. its just that theyve introduced and not said anything else about him/her since.

its not a proper answer to your question, but he may be of SOMETHING 'interesting' added....eventually??
>>
Fun things are fun.
>>
>>133121840
He'll appear when humanity is at risk or something like that. The guy said that when they asked whether they should have Blast come.
>>
>>133121817
This is so far from the truth, did you even read / watch OPM? Jesus fuck you are dumb. He constantly complains no one knows who he is, and he is jealous of the fan clubs for some of the other heroes. Hes not a fan of the ranking system, but that doesn't mean he doesn't care about being recognized.
>>
>>133121817
He does, he rants about it in episode 4 and you can clearly see his reaction in ep 5 when Genos mentions the hero fan clubs.
>>
Read the manga you insufferable secondary holy shit
>>
>>133121883
Saitama is like some Neutral Good, he just goes with what his dealt with, like being rank C for example.
>>
How did saitama's stopped punch not harm genos but destroyed the landscape behind him?

technically if he gets sent out in space and has nothing to push off of (like the moon) he will never be able to come back to earth
>>
>>133121605
It doesn't, it's just there to entertain normalfags with their cool explosions and badass characters. It's basically the Michael Bay of animu capeshit like Dragon Ball, what's worse is that it was adapted from a webcomic, like how SAO was originally was an internet fiction posted by the author in his blog.
>>
>>133122084
That's not true. He can push off space itself.

Because.

He's that good, m8.

i stand corrected.
>>
>>133122084
He could just take off a piece of clothing and throw it in the opposite direction of the Earth. He's infinitely powerful so he could probably just spit instead of remove his cape or anything.

>>133121605

You really don't get this story

Its not a shounen where the hero gets stronger and fights to beat the monster. The hero is already the strongest, in terms of level he's perfect, unbeatable.

The drama is brought from there in some ways; other characters fight things at times for drama, but with Saitama it will always be over in one hit, every fight is blue balls for him. Like if you're dick has the ability to make everyone cum the second you stick it in, so you can never find any enjoyment yourself.

He will never get the great fight he wishes for, yet he keeps going.

This story is a comedy and subversion on the tropes, not "Exactly as the tropes should be and should always adhere to them". The journey and struggle is not about the hero getting stronger, but rather everything else. Read the manga and maybe you'll get it, but maybe not if you're stumped already.

>Like if you're dick has the ability to make everyone cum the second you stick it in, so you can never find any enjoyment yourself.
That was a fun arc.

>>133122419
Well that sounds boring. Ass Class is honestly more entertaining than OPM.
>>
>>133122566
>Ass Class

I have no stake on how people judge OPM but assclass was just that, a load of ass. Don't ever let me catch you pretending it wasn't shit ever again.

Ass Class is objectively better than OPM though. If you consider Ass Class terrible than you consider OPM even worse, by default.

It's s comedy OP
>>
>>133122028
Stop with your smug animu faces, and just give me a legitimate answer.
>>
>>133122694
Don't bother comparing it with other things. You're just trying to make it sound better by proxy. Assclass sucked. No more. No less. Get fucked.
>>
>>133122727
And OPM is better?
>>
ITT: /a/ doesn't get comedies.
>>
>>133122760
/a/ gets comedy fine. I loved Saba and Seki threads. OPM is just mainline popular and thus attracting normalfags and shitposters.
>>
>>133121883
Keep this thought in your head as you watch the Meteor and Sea King episodes which will probably be in 2-4 weeks.

I'm not watching the anime, is it true the adaptation put more action and, at times, fucked up the comedic timing of the manga?

I've saw people say this, and also see more than enough people treating it like an action series instead of a comedy to wonder if it's true.
>>
>>133122885
One thing that has been sorely lacking so far is the amazing faces that ONE was capable of.
I don't think the comedic timing is too far off, but it a little different than how I felt it happened in the manga. Also, probably simply because of the pacing of anime, it feels like it is moving much faster than the manga.

The anime is still good though, I think.

They've been pretty faithful so far. The first episode made it clear that Saitama won't be fighting anyone seriously. Anyone who thinks its a normal battle series is stupid.

The story is not about figthting. It's a drama.

This. Maybe not /a/, but certainly OP and a majority of the retarded shitters in the threads.
Just because it has fight scenes doesn't mean it's a battle shounen, and this show will not ever be one. It's a comedy with underlying themes that challenge battle shounen tropes and societal values.

It pisses me off that filthy secondaries can't appreciate this.
>>
>>133123249
Onii-sama is a lot more perfect than Saitama is. Onii-sama also doesn't suffer from extreme boredom because he's autistic.
>>
>>133123113
Specifically what remains for heroes in the absence of reward, recognition, or challenge while surrounded by assholes and unable to properly give even adversaries due respect.

Most of what is left is jokes.
>>
>>133123249
Oniisama have a goal other than fight strong guys.
>>
>>133123249
oniisama lost his feeling his is a different plight.
Nii sama is basically about a force of nature exploring and deciding what humanity means for an individual. In this case it means muh sister and friends.

OPM is human enough already. He deals with the question of the monkeys paw. What happens when you get everything you ever wanted but it's not all you thought it was. How do you console that with yourself between dreams and reality.
>>
>>133123083
And the series isn't about just Saitama. In the manga it was more fleshed out. The first arc was Saitama beating up different monsters, questioning his own existence. It's like ONE himself asked where he was going with this. Then Genos appeared and it was funny as fuck, bringing contrast to Saitama's character. Other characters started to get introduced such as Licenseless Rider, King and the jail guy. Now it's about developing others' story arc. Saitama holds back and let's others try on their own. If they fuck up or are too weak, he comes in and saves them. If he'd up his game, all the other heroes would lose experience and have no reason to develope.

It's supposed to be a comedy manga not a shounen. If anything the "story" serves as set-ups for punch-lines and trope subversions.
