OPM chapter 84 is done. There is one doublespread that isn't in the raws but Murata added it to twitter, so i added that as well.
I don't know what this is about 4chan or appchan lately, it never lets me select the picture and keeps popping back to the window
>Ends right at the best part
Thanks for posting, anon
Ending it right before the best part...
> For heroes above Rank A
So obviously, S. Is that a thing in Japanese to be so indirect? ONE said the same thing about Boros being "above Dragon" instead of just saying "God".
That would also confirm the "but then that means ONE wanted to make us understand he is neither dragon nor god but... dragon+!!" bullshit theory as being bullshit theory.
Seems like Murata or ONE wants to use back the already created HA characters since the Anime has been giving them a much bigger amount of screentime.
But that answer also had more text next to it, more or less translates to,
"If this is a Dragon Level, what can a God Level do?" with a picture of MB Boros.
>Is that a thing in Japanese to be so indirect?
yes. The language itself is indirect. Many sentences only have implied subjects for instance. Then the culture itself stresses being indirect further.
Tfw bearded asian kun is going to marry Tatsumaki.
It's always like that though
People don't seem to realize that Murata is incredibly fast only because all they see are the online chapters
He's always working on two things at least
They're already married at this point.
>disaster level dragon, what kind of mysterious being is disaster level god.
Your reading too much into things though. I mean keep in mind the fanbook has King with max stats. It also lists Tats' age as unknown even though we know it.
Just remember to think things through and keep things simple. The association only has 5 disaster levels. They also have criteria attached. The author says Boros is stronger than the second highest level, so that only leaves the highest level. Does Boros meet the criteria for that level? Yes.
I'm calling bullshit on that comment, is it even the good translation? There has never been inbetween levels even though there is a large margin between some demon or dragon (cat child and Sea King, Fhurer Ugly and Golden Sperm), "above dragon" can only mean God.
Also UK, if you are still here, can you help out with this. Also somebody translated and said Boros is Dragon Level here, but in MB he is God level. I can't read this shit, so I don't know if that is true.
So today's chapter aside.
Anyone notice that even though Saitama has been totally making up his training for Genos as he goes along, Genos has still become considerably stronger because of Saitama's training
I can confirm. It definitely says "above dragon"
On this page it says "disaster level dragon"
also I am considering doing some of the hero book pages, though someone has to provide me the cleans for the pages they want translated.
>confirmed for being WRITTEN by ONE, not just supervised
citation needed. In all seriousness though, I think it went down like this "hello ONE, we're thinking of adding this scene of Tatsumaki just to pad out the episode, what do you think?"
animu filler is just supervised by ONE and Murata. They had a comment on the official twitter where they confirmed that. The OAD and the six OVAs with the BD were written by ONE though.
Boros was never officially classified, though. His ship alone was dragon, and since he was both capable and willing to destroy earth to take out Saitama he would almost certainly be God-level if anyone else knew about him.
More examples to prove the disaster levels of the fanbook are horse shit.
> fucking beefcake who easily destroyed a city, made a giant ass hole with a chain of punches and who got already put at demon before doing anything is really only demon
Stop being a battle shonen power level fag. Meteoric Burst Boros is obviously a threat to Humanity.
Dont bother responding if you will feed me with Dragon+ shit
The problem with the stuff Saitama fights is that most of it will destroy a small area and beat some c and b class heros then die in seconds
So it would be like an initial grading of demon based on the threat to a city that would've been ramped up if not for Saitama
His official name is Bearded Worker.
I think it would need to destroy several cities and not seems like it would stop for a virus to be god threat.
Except if its effect is overbroken and would quickly kill everyone I guess. The only non monster threat we got until now was the meteor, wonder if we'll get more.
> zombie virus
>but Garou is just a dick in this remake.
Like Garou wasn't a dick punching, shit eating, edgy spouting, hero wannabe, monster show off asshole in the webcomic.
And somehow I still think that Metal Bat won't go exactly down in this fight.
>Disaster Level God: A threat to the survival of humanity
I'm pretty sure humanity needs the surface of the planet to survive.
Also, if much stronger individuals like Tats and Saitama weren't a thing, Black Sperm should easily be abe to wipe out humanity if his broken number of him that should be way beyond the number of people living in OPM. Hell, he could just kill every heroes and then do that if he wanted, would easily work.
There is the damage thing, but the threats clearly are about PLs too.
Its more the battle shonen fags who want the God level threat to be some guy who fight on par with Saitama and shit. Thats why they are so autistic when it comes to Boros.
> A God level threat hasn't appeared yet omg cant wsit to see Saitama struggle for realz lol gon be epic!!1
Fucking hate these faggots.
What does the misplaced threat level have to do with that?
The very definition of the threat levels themselves means that Boros is a god level threat. What is so hard to understand about that?
For tomorrow's episode. Seems like they're mentioning the main animator.
Also, the last game card preview pretty much confirms we're getting the aftermath of Boros, great. Was scared they would not adapt it, I want my Tats trashing Genos.
>The A-team is animating tomorrow's ep.
And the two usual screenshot previews.
I was really, really disappointed by the last episode so I hope the Genos and Rider parts will at least be good.
The databook says King is stronger than Saitama and ONE said he is above dragon.
And if ONE actually said that Boros was no threat to humanity I'd wonder how humanity would try to stop someone who could destroy a city with a punch, kick someone to the moon and had a planetary attack
Mangatown has all the bonus chapters and revisions properly numbered. Manga.life has all the Viz releases so far (which have terrible translations but include redrawn scenes and extra artwork from the tankobons).
There was the possibility it would stop at Saitama vs Boros to make it more climatic for an ending.
Though Overlord was like that when I think about it, so yeah, we'll get it. Madhouse doesn't seems to mind making half of the end talk content.
> That glorious Sweet Mask
I can't wait for that moment. Sweet Mask shitting on the S Class heroes in Miyano's voice.
>The databook says King is stronger
The databook has joke stats for a joke character consistent with the running joke of the manga. Incredible, isn't is it?
> ONE said he is above dragon.
Yeah, he didn't say that he's god level. Considering that and the databook, Boros could be considered a borderline case, but it's not an actual God level threat.
>And if ONE actually said that Boros was no threat to humanity I'd wonder how humanity would try to stop someone who could destroy a city with a punch, kick someone to the moon and had a planetary attack
Look, I don't like that as well, but the databook is clear, while ONE was deliberately vague when he could have been explicit. Probably ONE has another idea for the actual and proper God level threat.
>One of the best performances in the MA arc
>Sense of Justice topped in the fanbook
>Now with a huge manboner for Saitama
Fuck, I knew I was going to like this demented asshole when I saw him rip the alien grunts to shreds.
Sweet Mask was fucking awesome in the MA arc. One of the main reasons I want Murata to really get into it already.
His attacks are pretty broken. He's definitely in the upper tier.
How do you guys feel about the card game? The illustrations looks cheap as fuck to me.
> that Fubuki
Why the fuck don't they just properly trace Murata's illustrations, would already look better.
> try to look for more Fubuki card to see if she gets better
> get this
That's some deviantart tier illustration, holy shit.
I checked all the cards available for now. Those 2 were the only fubuki ones.
As for Tatsumaki.
Though on the side note, the last ones were the special chapters monsters and this. Pretty hype.
Because he's the Action Hero we deserves and the manga needs.
Literal translations sound retarded, reading LN's should prove that very easily to anyone. Being faithful to the source is important but not at the cost of readability because you're an unthinking drone that doesn't understand communication.
Read the webcomic retard, he's stronger than most of them.
>Literal translations sound retarded.
>Most LN translations are bad.
>So translators should arbitrarily change the script to suit my personal taste.
Whiny cancerous fags like you who don't care about what the author write and how the author write are really the scum of any fanbase.
>because you're an unthinking drone that doesn't understand communication.
Exactly, that's you, someone who demands a dumbed down and simpler script because that "sound better".
Again, if you don't like how the author write, mail him. Don't ask translators to try replace the author.
Except the book shows him and says Dragon. ONE most likely provided assistance in filling information out for the book, and the page doesn't show Boros' ship, it shows Boros himself fighting Saitama.
It's always funny seeing people argue for retarded translation conventions that the stuff they're reading aren't even following.
This argument was originally about changing S-classes to S-class here>>134084247
If what you're worried about is keeping the proper plural form of S-class for that sentence you should study English more and realize both are proper plural forms.
>I don't like how the author phrased it
>Stop translating things I don't like, translate it the way I want it to sound, even if it completely changes meaning
You realize how fucking retarded you sound?
>if you refuse to spoonfeed me you're being mean
not him, but kill yourself
Only 1200 power level to take down earth but goku still weak as fuck at ssg that said to be has power level more than trilion and can be taken down by mere presentation laser and feeble fodder opponent. Talking about rational in your guidebook that you consider as canon to all .
No there shouldn't. If the author says "it's not white" and you want it to be "It's black", even blaming the translators, then it's not a matter for interpretation, you're a fucking idiot.
Knowing a language has nothing to do with translating what's written there. You'd be a horrible translator for any media.
> No there shouldn't. If the author says "it's not white" and you want it to be "It's blac
Why the hell are you making shit up? It has nothing to do with interpretation compared to what was said, which was "say S class heroes instead of above A class heroes".
>You'd be a horrible translator for any media.
Says the guy who thinks literal translations are the way to go. Shit's unacceptable outside garbage fan translations.
Language isn't a list of words, it's meant to communicate. Unless the author wrote it to sound retarded and awkward in Japanese, it should not sound retarded and awkward in english. Literal translations make english sound retarded and awkward.
While I think >>134092778 is a dipshit and literal translations are retarded, I don't think that is a problem in this case. Above A class is what was said, and above A class doesn't sound awkward. It's only weird because above A class is only S, but the same goes for the jap version.
>While I think >>134092778 is a dipshit and literal translations are retarded
You and that guy are saying the same thing, though.
No idea idea why you are trying so hard to make it looks like he was advocating excessively literal translations. Being against retarded and arbitrary changes doesn't mean wanting excessively literal translations.
The issue is that 以上 is generally inclusive of whatever it's attached to. So A級以上のヒーロー would be heroes of Rank A and above, i.e., A and S, not just S.
Likewise, the statement that Boros was 竜以上 would be more like "At least dragon..." rather than "Above dragon..."
It's ambiguous, it can mean both. But apparently lots of people are upset that I started translating more literally, when only 2 weeks ago readers complained that I was translating too freely.
You guys aren't making it easy for me.
Do whatever you feel like is best, King, you've been doing a great job. What the fuck do these armchair editors know?
For the record I prefer translations to be more free, but do what you feel works best.
While "A and above" doesn't mean much sense because the HA uses a strict ranking system, "Above Dragon" definitely makes sense, not as "Dragon+", but simply that he is Dragon level but slightly stronger than other Dragon level monsters, while not being strong enough to be considered God level.
Is it really that hard to get it?
Well, that's why I said generally. But in situations like these where there's only one thing above the thing being listed I feel pretty safe interpreting it that way. Especially since the inclusive use seems to be more common on the whole.
And people are always going to complain about something, don't let it get to you.
Why not have a ranking above dragon but below god? If dragon is "threat to multiple cities", and god is "threat to humanity", why not have one thats "threat to a country" or something like that?
Actually, now that I think about it, on one of the anime episodes it showed a map that revealed the cities are fucking huge, so maybe there aren't actually 'countries' in the OPM universe.
>So Above dragon level can only mean God level.
Not exactly. Monster rankings aren't as strict as HA rankings and it's been shown countless times that a certain monster was judged wrongly by them, which means he is above the other dragon level monsters but hasn't done anything to be considered a God threat. Similar to how Garou only called himself a God threat despite never doing anything indicative of actually being such a threat, hell he didn't even kill anyone regardless of having the power to do it or not.
I want it to be the second so bad. But part of Garou's character is that he's largely undefeated until he encounters Saitama after the dine and dash, and Bang/brother. So it's probably going to be the case that Metal Knight's onslaught breaks up the fight.
That doesn't change a thing. The meteor didn't destroy multiple cities, yet it still was dragon level because of the potential destruction. Something that is above Dragon is a God Level threat, simple as that. Else it would be a dragon level threat.
Changed the translation to (hopefully) make more people happy.
>Yeah, he didn't say that he's god level. Considering that and the databook, Boros could be considered a borderline case, but it's not an actual God level threat.
There's nothing in between anon. He's either dragon, like the book says, or he's god, like ONE implied, but oh god, he didn't say directly and that means it can't be the case.
Cities are the size of countries. I'd say "multiple cities" would be roughly equivalent to a continent, which would be a logical step between 'country-size' and 'planet-size'.
Monster rankings aren't black and white, and the series isn't power level oriented. Boros being "stronger than dragon" and not being explicitly stated as being "god threat" means that until ONE says "ok yeah he was god threat", he's simply at the top of Dragon, above all other Dragon levels.
He's not "in-between" or "Dragon+" or "God". He's above the rest of Dragon, which means TOP OF DRAGON.
like I said it's ambiguous so it can mean both, I interpret it as "s-class plus sweet mask who is A-class", which would basically still mean "above A-class" because sweet mask is an exception.
You mean has single pages on par with OPM every couple weeks.
He beat Homeless Emperor, who is Dragon Class.
Monster Rankings aren't black and white, but monster RANKS are clearly defined. There's some grey area when it comes to DECIDING what rank a monster is because it's usually based on the information the HA has at hand, but if a monster is ABOVE Dragon Class, then they are by definition God Class. No 2 ways about it.
Isn't this kind of rare? I know artists who are obviously much better at art than writing, but it seems odd someone could actually be "bad" at writing while being good at art, since writing is a lot easier.
The Metal Knight appearance in this chapter doesn't really feel like ONE wrote it. Reused design, reused attacks, reused motivation, sound like someone read the meteor chapter and tried to write Metal Knight based on it.
>but it seems odd someone could actually be "bad" at writing while being good at art, since writing is a lot easier.
See: Oh Great. And not just him, there's many mangaka who work primarily paired with writers.
And writing isn't easy. I'm sure Murata can write if he needs to, but he's simply not a guy with a really good story to tell.
For that I applaud his self awareness, because Again: Oh Great. Great art, atrocious writing. he'd do much better partnered up.
>There's some grey area when it comes to DECIDING what rank a monster is but if a monster is decided as a rank it's definite.
No, also read what >>134093399 said, Boros is Dragon, top of it, not God level. Unless ONE explicitly says he is, he's only the strongest of the Dragon class so far. Same with Garou, he only called himself a God level so unless ONE says he did become a God level threat he's still a Dragon level one, and lower than Boros.
Sorry UK, but let's be honest, choosing between " Rank A and above" and "Above Rank A" has nothing to do with translating literally or freely, those are just a different interpretations of the same ambiguous sentence. And you must choose one because conveying that ambiguity is impossible.
About the free/proper/literal translation matter, as I say 2 weeks ago, just decide what you think is more reasonable. Not what people want, you should never care about that. The only important thing is what's better and more reasonable for ONE's script.

They think this rating is good but if you compare. It's actually not good rating. in kanto region
See usually the highest rating is above 20 and 5% near anything being good rating.
http://www.videor.co.jp/data/ratedata/backnum/2015/index.htm and morning show is consistenly has the highest rating if we ignore classification, cmiiw.
It's written by ONE, no question about it.
The meme that Murata is a bad writer needs to die too.
He has never written anything so we wouldn't know.
He was just always more interested in art.
You've mentioned two, and I remember in the '80s it was more common like Hara/Buronson, but in my own experience looking for artists, it's hard to hire a freelancer who is willing to do art but would accept minimal input on story.
To add to this, ONE could simply have said Boros is God Level if he wanted to. He didn't, and there was a reason for that.
"not Dragon means God" is just murrikans expressing buttfrustration at not getting a straight answer.
I wish ONE will just troll everyone and call Boros Demon Level
But we don't know if it's actually above x, so the whole point is moot. You should know by now that when it comes OPM just because someone says it is one thing doesn't mean it actually is that thing. Characters and organizations have been wrong numerous times before.
Does anyone have a folder of all the side drawings Yusuke Murata has done like on his twitter and such?
ONE is spending almost all his time on MOB, which is his actual job. OPM is just a hobby. He isn't writing the non-canon chapters Murata comes up with, he's likely doing what Eiichiro Oda does when he "approves" Toei filler: it's okay as long as it doesn't violate canon or something I want to do later.
>MFW HE'S DRAWING METAL BAT VS GAROU
Secondary canon is the best that this manga can achieve it's only adaption. Even in source material filler is filler. It still not canon. Like crossover chapter or some sol chapters
>But we don't know if it's actually above x, so the whole point is moot.
Regarding boros, maybe. But if something is said to be above X, then it's not X. There is no in-between. There's many different Dragon Class with different power levels, but they're all Dragon Class. There's nothing in between classes.
>Characters and organizations have been wrong numerous times before. Obviously, but for the most part they err on the lower side. And the HA didn't give a threat level on Boros, ONE did, even if it was not a straight answer.
O maybe, you know, because
>Boros could be considered a borderline case, but it's not an actual God level threat.
>Probably ONE has another idea for the actual and proper God level threat.
and, again, that would be consistent with the databook.
> db fag know anything about canon
Yes in your logic everything is guidebook, notebook online game that's touched by author must be ultra canon ean supersede even the source manga material. It's secondary canon it'a the best as it can achieve. That's how it usually is.
>But if something is said to be above X, then it's not X.
It's not stated as "definitely God", simply that it is above the rest of Dragon. If it's not God but above the other Dragon threats seen so far (which is what the scale is based off), it's top of Dragon.
Above rest of Dragon, not above the tier itself. HA didn't conduct studies on it to judge it as being definitely not Dragon, it's an estimate. Does it say he's God? No? He's not God.
Until something explicitly says "Boros was the God level threat", he'll still be the strongest Dragon level that's ever appeared, but not God.
> dbfag assumption
> hipster assumption
Why do we care about hipster assumption. Webcomic is the source material and the most canon it's has been the ruling since age a go. Since manga and anime is exist. Why must OPM become hipster like you dbfag?
But it's not an assumption. It's proven fact, we've even seen the pages of one of the extra chapters ONE drew.
I know you're just pretending to be retarded at this point, but facts are facts.
>It literally cannot get any simpler.
Yes, it can, that's fucking point: "He's God level". Which is not what he said, that's why it isn't that simple.
And you know that, even if you are playing dumb.
> Metal Bat still jobbing to Garou
Its always fun to see an /a/ favorite getting shitted on.
Garou is having way too much of the upper hand here, but there is also the fact he didn't get touched by one of MB's attacks.
My guess is that the latter will simply come back to action, send him flying far asay, and kill senior at the same time.
He's definitly gonna kill senior for me.
Pig God defeated Gums, who was a dragon level threat, and also finished off Evil Natural Water who may or may not have been dragon at that point (it still one shot the A class hero that was there)
We have literally seen the previously unreleased ONE drawn storyboards for the "filler" that murata draws. Specifically the Konbu Infinity arc. Is there a council of OPM Elders meeting in your head that makes these "rulings" you keep referencing?
You misremember, Pig god got completely defeated by gums.
Might as well post this because people are being retarded again.
Boros is not God level for the simple reason that God will be the God level.
>be from japan
>go to Murata's stream
>Filthy Gaijins shitting up the chat
> litterally the same voice
> same haircut
Short fits him better.
>shoving Boros in with those worthless ass Dragon class shitters
Fuck off niggers.
The greatest testament to Murata's skill as an artist is how effortlessly he can adjust his art to literally any mangaka's style.
Although that shanks is a tiny bit too detailed for toriyama's style.
Not sure about Shokugeki, but Murata redraws the actual physical volumes too.
See Murata's redraw in the online manga for comparison.
GET Rekt Metalbatfags. He's done for good this nigga
Shokugeki is mostly people standing around with occasional high detail art. It's also a lot less often than with Murata
Go ahead mod if you want to continue this hipster faggotry of dbfag. That think their guidebook and their online game is canon to all because toriyama touch a bit of it. Eventhough contradicting everywhere yet ignore it.
Might as well post some of Murata's clusterfuck images
>inb4 that water bottle
Tosh is a great artist but Murata's work even back when he was doing a weekly series is still at a whole new level.
> tfw he gets NTR'd by his wife
There is probably planning involved in the colored illustrations. But he's still able to do some pretty impressive stuff in B/W.
Why are people being so retarded about boros being god level? He's above dragon which is threat to cities, therefore god which is threat to humanity. No one is saying he IS god. Just like how theres multiple dragon tier monsters later on, there might be more god tier monsters.
