If High School English has taught me anything, it's that Mumen Rider appears too much to not be a major story arch of something.

I think Mumen Rider may be the real Saitama.
>Saitama said he only did strength training
>Mumen wears a goggles and a hat so it's very possible the real Saitama is under there.
>One Punch Man looks nothing like the original Saitama.

Thoughts?

This is entirely possible since the whole story is obviously just a dream. Nobody could survive the training Saitama went through and everything happening in the OPM universe makes little sense. Everything points that this whole saga is the dream Saitama is having from falling into a coma because of that training. The only way for him to wake up is to be defeated by one of his ennemies and this is why his subconcious is sending stronger and stronger ennemies at him and that leads us to this major monster outburst.

I'd almost believe you until that arc where Saitama with hair receives his costume. Saitama is still badly.

Seriously.

I've learned about fitness, foreign culture, weapons technology, business, economics, history, politics and human nature and psychology, all from a site known to the general public for harassing people for its own amusement.

You fuckers turned me from a depressed autistic loser into something resembling a normal human being with a shot at success.

Thank you!

More so that he can protect his suit, I assume. Honestly speaking, there' just no consistency in how his suit suffers damage. His only real point of vulnerability would be his eyes.

I think he means that saitma stole mumen rider's backstory because he is obviously not human.
>>
>>134894470
>it's that Mumen Rider appears too much to not be a major story arch of something.

Mumen is just a meme character that got popular within the fambase, he is featured a lot in the animu, but he is barely in the mango and the webcomic, the source of the series.
>>
>>134897614
spoiled because no blog
nothing significant, honestly. I just don't see myself living past 30, I'm probably going to end up committing suicide, I used to say if I die it'd be by suicide and look at me now.
I'm Catholic and all, and what I do believe is that once I've fulfilled my purpose here then I'll be allowed to die, unfortunately I think that's within the next 5 years or so and everything seems to point towards that. I've accepted it though, but I'd like to figure out what my purpose is before I die as opposed to after

>>
>>134897493
You and me both, anon.
People talk about the anonymity and impermanence, but I think it's the embracement of decadence and blind hostility that makes this such a lovely, rich cesspool.
Circlejerk environments tend to be nice and functional on the outside but there's nothing but repulsive shit beyond the surface. This is more or less the opposite of that.
>>
>>134894470
I think Mumen Rider and Garou serve as counterpoints to Saitama's character.

Mumen is, essentially, what Saitama would've ended up being if he didn't burst through his limiter and lost a good chunk of his his determination to be a hero as a result.
Similarly, Saitama is what Garou would've become, albeit through technique instead of brute force, if his goal was to be a hero instead of a monster and had a couple extra years to keep getting stronger.

Blind speculation based on a few assumptions, of course, but this is my take on things.
>>
>>134894470
you moron

>>134897705
jaw structure.
saitama's jaw is sharp in the backstory and the usual.
mumen rider has a rounder jaw.
plus, saitama's eye when he's angry are the same shape in both, and noone else has that particular shape

One of the points is that Saitama isn't just the best hero because of his physical attributes, but because he's heroic in the best and most humble ways and was a hero and self-sacrificing to help people before there was even a hero association.

Mumen Rider is all those great heroic traits, but without all the power. He's the laymen who runs toward the fire, regardless of how scared he is, because he wants to help people.
>>
>>134894470
I heard a theory that when Saitama got punched and said "oh it broke" about his tooth that it had a double meaning that he broke his limits. Also weren't some of the monsters in the series humans that wished/obsessed for something so much they turned into it?
>>
>>134894470
the entire story of this manga is pretty straight forward and simple. So keep that fucking twisted shit for yourself

Bingo.
He has the heart of a true hero; his body just hasn't caught up. Yet.

The show's premise is a joke.

What OP (you) are saying is fucking retarded, why would a side character become the same person as Saitama?

Nope. Saitama isn't obsessed like the monstertypes.

He just does it as a hobby.

I'm not gonna say 4chan is a holy grail of knowledge, but god damn if people on here don't know how to make history much simpler to learn about than schools did. Going on /tg/ and reading history lessons is both informative and entertaining, most giving you short hand versions to pique interest so you actually want to learn more about it on your own.
>>
>>134897055
I would have never read Of Mice and Men on 4chan, so it taught me that.

>>134904056
Yeah, who fucking needs a basic understanding of science or history?
>>
>>134897756
Well shit, you're right
And this reminds me, there is no explanation on how he got those super senses of his. Strenght and speed are easily explanable with the training regime and consequential limit break, but how the fuck can he hear and see so well? That makes even less sense than the rest of the premise
>>
One Punch Man basically short circuits the entire Shonen formula... and that's wonderful.
>>
>>134905492
It's all a joke.
>>
>>134905492
It's a secret, Anon. Theres a shit tonne of background information we've deliberately not been told.

The hero organisation, the state of the world, the fact that obsessed people become horrifying, terrible monsters.

Of course, it's up for debate whether we've not been told because there's some kind of neat way of wrapping it all up, or whether OPM is simply self aware enough to realise that it doesn't really fucking matter.
>>
>>134900866

Pretty much half of the major characters are foils to Saitama in some way. King is the most obvious since he's living an exact reverse of Saitama's life: Saitama wants a challenge, but is so unreasonably powerful that he can't find one, and can't even reap satisfaction from public recognition. King wants to live a quiet life, but a series of staggering coincidences led to him landing in a position of permanent danger, and is driven further into guilt by an undeservedly adoring public.

Genos has a backstory so long and elaborate it serves as a joke, and his appearance is very flashy and stylish. Saitama has no backstory aside from being bored and deciding to become a hero, and has a comically simple appearance.

Boros had exactly the same existential crisis that Saitama had, and thus exactly the same motivation to go find powerful beings to fight. The only significant difference is that he did so in an incredibly blind and destructive way.

The only significant characters in whom I can't find strong parallels to Saitama are Fubuki and Tatsumaki.

>>134905492
He broke his limiter, thats it. He was a background, crowd character who went through 'hellish training' like a shonen MC does and because of how such a situation isn't possible in a story universe, he broke the system and caused his stats to all sky rocket.
>>
>>134897705
Except you see both of them during a flashback to Saitama's high school years in the manga and they are different people. Saitama is Saitama and Mumen is Mumen.

OP is just retarded.

I always hated analyzing things and lay that down as a fact then.

Like most of you guys do.

It's also a sign of being from reddit. Now fuck off.

I do, however, hope that Mumen Rider or someone else breaks their limiter as well. More likely Garou.

>>134913547
>I always hated analyzing things and lay that down as a fact then.

I am fine with it as long as the people doing it can admit that it's just speculation and random fanwankingon their part.

It's when they try to retroactively make themselves right by fancannoning the fanwank that they deserve to be culled and shot.

As retarded as it can get, since it was shown that both Licenseless Rider and Saitama attended to the same school at some point, but while the former was getting beaten by bullies while trying to protect the other students, the latter didn't give a single fuck and was bored all the time.
