ep. 9 official thread
I think the rain continuing for a little longer improved the atmosphere in the manga.
why to people say that the anime is really good quality?
Which is the updated drawing for this, the one you posted or pic related? I kind of wish they went for this one to be honest.
>Metal Bat animated
If they somehow fuck him up I'm gonna cry
Are you ready for the WORLD'S STRONGEST MAN to be animated next week, /a/?
Are you ready to hear the King Engine roar?
>screeching SKIP when the episode wasn't even over yet
Impatient little fucks, why would you ever doubt based madhouse.
Saitama creeps me the fuck out
Don't want to spoil? The text explains a big part of the episode already (up to the city being destroyed by something), and episode 9's screenshots didn't really show anything either.
>the hole that genos blasted in the shelter
Hot damn. You know, if it weren't for Saitama always dragging him into the greatest threats the world has to offer Genos would be wrecking so much shit
Not wanting to derail a nice thread for once but do you guys think he could beat Giorno 1 v 1?
>Does anyone know what the newspaper wrote about him?
It seems most of the news was about how an S clast got beat. This might in fact be the FIRST time that an S class had fallen in battle, so it makes sense that newspapers would make a big deal out of it. And PriPri is probably extremely embarrassed.
Prisoner did nothing wrong, fuck off back to tumblr.
There are so many theories
1. Saitama is Blast because he saved the Chairman's grandkid and thus the Kid had his Grandfather reserve that spot
2. He is not real, he is a placebo to install fear because Tatsumaki is so strong that imaging someone stronger than her, puts everything into place
3. He simply doesn't like the spotlight, he can deal with Dragon levels and possible God level threats, but he is humble as shit and doesn't want attention.
4. He is Pig God after doing some Chouji shit
5. He is Shinchi
So, apparently the thing that's been fanning the fujoshits fuel is the Nico Nico Douga Live show where the VAs talk about the episode while puppets of Saitama and Genos do weird things.
well fuck my ass, I forgot the picture
I'm a bit mad they didn't make a zoom on the woman of the promotion table nor showed the Fubuki group's shadow.
>there are people who actually thought Boros wouldn't get animated
>people unironically reading the manga
you are NOT welcome here.
The anime exists for a reason.
but it does look like garou's transformation though
> not this
Yeah, not that I think about it, maybe that was a reference to ds, they look a lot like each others.
Fuck, they look exactly the same aside from the weapon and third eye, how come I never spotted that before. They even have wings.
>Saitama's punch literally blew away all the rain in the area
Still kinda messes with the whole thing about the civilians questioning his power
He changes it constantly. He will change it again after the Boros arc.
welp forgot pic
That part was fucking fantastic. Wasn't disapointed.
>No cloud split thing
I know you don't want to copy the manga completely madhouse but that shit was cool.
Am I getting mega deja vu or have I already seen the entire scene with saitama at the hero HQ talking about going up to B class before?
Just finished it myself. When Mumen Rider kept fighting and the people cheered him on I was brought to tears! Then Saitama sacrificing his own cred to make sure all the other heroes got credit for their efforts. I was so moved. truly Saitama, Genos, and Mumen are the heroes this world needs.
> loli crying
Okay, them adding this was perfect.
Best part of the fight. Can't wait to see it animated.
Funny you say that
Because that is exactly what happens from the next episode onward, its what made OPM so popular.
Everything till Sea King was just world building, now we get to see the real thing
I'm looking forward to this part more, because it will make me sad.
Why does saitama even let opponents get in a load of attacks before one-punching them?
It happened against asura kabuto, it happened against seaking and it'll happen against boros. It's clear that he can easily percieve and dodge all of the attacks but he doesn't: why?
What is this expression trying to convey?
>not strong enough
What's your basis for this?
He's extremely strong. That seems enough of a reason to be in S class. Emphasis on "extremely". Demon level and above are all "extremes", after all.
how does genos get back to dr stench if he's still in pieces?
He's an exception, since although he technically can't beat any strong enemies, he also can't be beaten either which makes him good for recon and scouting new threats.
Which sort of raises the question of what watchdog man does?
I reckon that Dr Stench comes and collects him.
He's not Cell from DBZ anon. Although in the case that his regen powers are actually that good, it could also be said that he's out of energy, at that point hes been using Meteroic Storm like crazy= when its supposed to be a finisher.
He regenerates because of all his internal energy.
Meteoric Burst uses up the energy really fast, and the Planet Buster Roar Cannon expends all remaining energy at once for one final attack.
The tentacles ARE the kagune. You're thinking of kakuhou.
>muh villain headcannon for no fucking reason
>all I need to do is make them evil is have them wear black hurrr
tumblr is ridiculous
do you realize what you're watching?
really fucking good/10
I just realized this cat is the only one who manage to inflict damage to Saitama
stupid file size limits, is it so much to ask for an increase to 4mb?
Yep, definitely. Sometimes, it's better not to call attention to yourself. Just one of those cliches in manga; civilian inadvertently forcing the hero to sacrifice themselves to protect said civilian for their foolish actions.
You're right. The best way to combat shitposting is to make quality posts yourself. I slipped there, my bad.
Indirectly? Saying that it's her fault is a bit too harsh though.
The additions to the Genos fight were great.
Can't wait for Boros next week
Where does it say he has super strength? He's got a healing factor and wins his fights through attrition. He's definitely stronger than the average human but nowhere near super human from what we've seen.
>tfw this is what happened to Watchdog
>he was probably flipping signs with his suit on and got stuck like this guy
The episode was really 'meh' for me.
I was expecting that they'd put more budget from the last few episodes into this one, so we'd get a fight with animation on the level of Saitama VS Genos. Instead we had some nice and fluid scenes, bur overall it kinda showed they were off model a lot of times.
I still liked the episode, just not what I was exppecting as a finale. Also, sucks major ass they ruined the impact of Saitama's punch - he was supposed to send a shock wave across the rain with his punch, but it'd fall again after a second and it'd stop raining only later, when Saitama commented on it. Yeah, the punch was okay, but it could've been a lot better.
Would be great if it turns out they put all the money into the last three episodes, but now I'm less hyped about it...
