Q: Sensei have you ever read any OPM doujin?
Murata: For me, after I start reading it for a short while, I'm going to be like, no, this isn't right, Fubuki and Tasumaki should've act in this way....No, no this is wrong...and I'll be starting to feel the urge to draw it myself...I have to stop reading I have to stop reading....Hmmm....As for Hentai, if given the chance, I'd like to try it, but I'm not going to draw OPM hentai...OPM with H story...right. I often draw Fubuki and Tastumaki in an arousing way, but there is still a limit to it you know. Drawing H is a one way street, there is no turning back, if I really did it, then I guess it would become the only thing I can draw afterwards. I know for now this type of story line and topics seems to be somewhat successful (T: guess he's referring to Shokugeki no Soma), but in the long run it will be difficult to write a story with a serious plot, since the readers will keep asking for fan service, right? Hahaha. Well I'd still love to try drawing using different art style.
>mfw Fubuki hentai drawn by Murata is a possibility in the near future
>his face when he finds his drawing full of strangers' semen the day afte
GODAMMIT MURATA JUST GIVE US THE FUBUKI PORN ALREADY
Blame Vietnam Era DC Editors.
The entire 'No Kill' Mandate placed on Heroes was so they could sell to the hippies protesting against the war and Soccer moms who hated 'muh violence'. Then it became part of the characters to a fault.
Batman gets the worst of it because Joker is just full Chaotic Evil.
And yeah, I know he draws man nipples and tends to show the shapes of nipples when they should be shown like Dos, which makes it all the worst that he doesn't seems to wants to draw girl nude nipples.
based on the last QA he's also over 190 cm tall.
>T: First impression when you met Toriyama sensei?
>A: Woahhh Toriyama sensei is tall and huge, I'm super nervous, I think I met him in the rest room during JUMPfes. Eh? I just googled it, height 173, that's not tall, this is weird!? (Murata himself is over 190 judging from his photo) Ohh I see, Toriyama sensei's head is relatively small compare to his body. Or maybe it's just the psychological effect hahaha, Toriyama sensei is truly a living legend.
Murata apparently used Bruce as reference for Garou and Jackie as ref for what's his name the filler guy.
Man I wish he streamed more. He took a huge break.
Draw it yourself. As painful and taxing as trying to mimic someone else's style is, you'll get it right eventually.
>Is it bad that I like doujins where the characters are still in character?
This is basically THE requirement for me. It is fine if they are original creations, but if they are based on existing characters then I need to have them act normally.
This is why one of my favourite Doujins, despite the art being merely okay, is the EVA series by Saigado. This was also why I stopped following mogudan, who started off with Rei Ayanami in character but then went far away from it.
>The fact guys have shown nipples
Wow how R rated
>i'm so glad i chose this line of work
how do i get that job
>ONE wouldn't allow it
That's right, ONE would force him to draw 10 Tatsumaki doujins first.
Does anyone know what Murata was drawing on his stream today
>This is basically THE requirement for me. It is fine if they are original creations, but if they are based on existing characters then I need to have them act normally.
I understand the reasoning behind that, but there are two large obstacles preventing me from getting behind that reasoning.
1) The quality of writing between in-character dialogue/interactions and out-of-character is negligible at best. Porn/cheesecake writing is 50% godawful, 30% cringe and 20% inoffensive. Even if the writing is faithful to the original series and manages to be inoffensive or interesting --
2) The characters have to be steered into having sex, which for 95% of the time is verboten in the source material.
ONE has the superior taste. Murata's always been a basic looks over substance guy. His ES21 interviews are hell.
It's either Zombieman and someone or two new guys with this chick
wow anon does your dad work as murata's assistant please tell us more
Indeed, when you think about it, pretty every heroine, who's able to fight, is completely OFC in doujins.
Normally, they'd crush any fat old pervert or on contrary, they turns into a complete moeblob with their love interest.
In one of the oast QA Murata said Saitama is his favorite character.
Also, favorite characters and characters he prefers to draw are totally different. And I don't remember him saying he prefer in any way Boros over Garou.
One couldn't care less. If he wanted to pick best esper he would go with Mob. If he wanted to go with best boy he would go with Reigen Reigen. If he wanted to pick best monster he would pick Dimple
I can't exactly remember, but I think he chose 3 of his favorite characters, which were Saitama, Genos, and Fubuki. He then said something about Sonic too
Maybe Saitama with hair
Otherwise, he'd be lying. His favorite character type is fucking Shin and it shows in his drawings all the time too
He commented about Boros in one of his streams
Alright, that's even gayer than Boros.
Saying you prefer one character over another doesn't mean that's your favorite character overall.
t. human trash
is this better?
only if its a girl getting NTRd from her astronaut fiance by an alien specimen he was transporting back to earth that escaped and attached a tendril to his head to read his mind and assume an alien hybrid form of his fiance so it can mate with him.
I refuse to believe this question was asked, and even less that he answered. Is hentai that generalised in japan that you fucking ask professionals about drawing porn versions of their work ? It feels rude as fuck to me, I don't know if it's because I'm an artist too, but someone asking you to turn your life's work and craft into masturbation material for some fatasses behind their desks doesn't feel right at all. If this really happened, I can see murata answer out of politeness but I really don't think he even considered it.
Metal Bat this is a site for 18+ or older
>Doujin is not porn
>If doujin is not porn then it's a story chapter
>A doujin of one punch man is a story from one punch man drawn by murata
>A doujin of one punch man is literally an extra chapter of one punch man
Congrats on the autism.
>Previously I never drew any loli-like character, when I'm drawing Tastumaki I spend lots of effort on drawing the ass. Same goes for the back muscles on Garou, I noticed I should try to refer on Bruce Lee's back muscle, it is always good to have something as reference.
I don't really see the focus on Tatsumaki's ass but okay.
>the highlight of this volume is Saitama sitting on a toilet
Seems about right.
This has been confirmed ages ago
I want to fuck Fubuki while she wears her heels
I just said what Murata said and you call me a retard? He said he's getting tired of the filler by ONE and just wanted to get on to Garou arc but ONE is telling him to draw this tournament filler.
Reminder: Murata is a lolicon. I bet he has tons of personal hentai of Tatsumaki.
>Murata is a lolicon
Please. It's all Fubuki
Well even he said that an attractive woman must have a great pair of eyes
Nothing to admit when it isn't true
Q: How old is Genus?
A: Hmmm...he speed up his tech research after his 80's, should be somewhere near 100 years old now.
AGE AIN'T SHIT
Wow thought it'd be like god or something.
You guys know that he probably draws the nudes in secret, right?
Like I bet the dude has his own ultra rare porn stache of OPM hentai drawn by him with all of his fetishes.
Damn, I bet that shit is so fucking delicious. It's too bad he can't share it or else he'll become a designated hentai artist.
>A fan asked Murata regarding why ONE sensei decided to add these extra stories in Garou arc for the redraw version, Murata did not give a clear answer, but he says that ONE sensei is doing it for season 2, ONE sensei decided to rewrite the story of Garou arc.
ONE YOU GIANT DAMN FAGGOT.
We could've had the whole webcomic arc redrawn already, we could've had an S2 PV already. An actual fucking S2, not this blatant fillershit.
>why is it filler?
>it's filler because it's bad!
>why is it bad?
>it's bad because it's filler!
It's been the same writer and artist from chapter one to the very latest update. Just admit that you don't enjoy OPM.
It doesn't at all retard, the whole MA raid to the end of the garou fight is already enough content for one cour. With the content between it and Boros it would have been way too rushed.
You're the goddamn retard with no sense of pace.
Fights in MA are all deliberately short off panel shitstomps with extremely few exceptions. 12 eps is more than enough to cover Garou's webcomic arc.
5 episodes till Garou gets kidnapped
5 episodes for the MA raid
2 episodes for the final fight, from Garou blitzing heroes to facing Saitama
are you one of those morons who think King would take 3 episodes or something?
Exactly. So there would be no fucking excuse to draw the whole 30 minute fight between ZM and Vamp. ONE locking himself up in a fillershit circle for Madhouse is sure as hell not an excuse. The webcomic arc was fine as it was.
>Keep bitching, everyone else will prefer the remade version.
i can see it now
instead of casually telling Garou to kill 100 humans Psyk- Orochi will launch a grand TOURNAMENT as an initiation ritual for him and some filler dudes
what a masterpiece
oh are you SURE about that?
once you lower yourself to tournaments there's no turning back
Part of the point was to have enough content to fill 3 seasons. We're clearly near the end of the "new content" and getting soon back to the webcomic plotline for volume 15 or 16.
the point is because ONE chose to taint the first half with filler filth he's now forced to stuff the second half with filler too, for muh animu S3, which might not even happen at this point because S2 is pretty much guaranteed to be a flop
so get fucking ready for the grand MA tournament
ONE is going full Kubo
Everything is wrong with it and you know it. From reusing monster designs and wasting time on forgettable fodder to introducing concepts like fucking monster cells over the mysterious God entity and reducing Saitama's appearances to legit toilet humor.
Your bait is shit. Kill yourself.
This. With the current setup there's no. way. for One to surpass even the Boros arc, let alone the true culmination of Garou's arc. So both normalfags and webcomic oldfags are gonna REEEEEEE at S2. One fucked up.
I think it's a good addition because it gives more weight to the MA raid. It makes sense for Kid Emperor to be looking for the base and for half the S-class assembling to go there on a moment's notice if there's been a major attack where the MA announced its presence. Previously the raid was preceded by couple monsters bailing Garou out from getting curbstomped and it's a really sudden development.
>From reusing monster designs
When? Where? Which monster designs have been reused?
>wasting time on forgettable fodder
I like suiryu and I like the tournament contestants, they're a fun bunch, what do you want from them?
>to introducing concepts like fucking monster cells over the mysterious God entity
We don't know if god entity is written out, we haven't even met homeless emperor yet, in fact most of the monster cell/monster king stuff is still up to speculation
>reducing Saitama's appearances to legit toilet humor.
now fuck off and eat a bag of dicks
Anyone who thinks God has been written out is legitimately retarded. The monster cells are most likely produced by Orochi or some other singular monster and will be phased out since MA gets destroyed. God has nothing to do with this plot point, Hobo Emperor isn't even a monster and Garou transforms the 'classic' way.
>God has nothing to do with this plot point
God probably created Orochi to have this manual monster creation power though. Remember he has been a thing for years while hobo was created one month ago.
Are you blind, retarded or both?
Centipedes. Possibly Do-S if ONE keeps Glasses. The slashing maniac from the fight with Genos. Master race guy is a fucking Garou rip-off, must look exactly the same in ONE's scribbles.
>I like suiryu and I like the tournament contestants
Cool. Kill yourself instead of propagating shit taste.
>We don't know if god entity is written out
Not the point. Whether he's gonna keep it or not, he already introduced something as primitive as fucking monster cells before it. It's a) a shitty replacement b) ruining the God reveal, which was the only way to artificially and instantly transform people into monsters in the webcomic MA, a way that was made mysterious on purpose. Then again, MA was also secretive and mysterious in the webcomic. Here it's entirely the opposite, a bloody circus with pamphlets.
Fuck off back to plebbit, cocksucker.
Currently God doesn't even seem to have anything to do with monsters. We don't know how Hobo Emperor joined the MA, but I doubt God specifically ordered him to do that. So far nobody beside Hobo and Zombieman are even aware of God, that whole bit is disconnected from everything else for now.
>which was the only way to artificially and instantly transform people into monsters
Where the fuck is it stated that Hobo is a monster? He didn't transform into anything, he just gained magic powers which makes him more like an esper than a monster.
He got magical powers once his psyche reached the point of no return, i.e. he decided that the whole world shall burn and God granted his wish by giving him unnatural powers. Which are far from ESP anyway. It's just energy blasts.
He's a humanoid monster, obviously, dumbass.
Anon, you forgot chapter 2 of the webcomic, a scientist guy brewed some disgusting piss and after his "little" brother had drunk it, he instantly turned into a monster that flattened a city just from falling on it.
>Currently God doesn't even seem to have anything to do with monsters
It's the opposite though, he's clearly behind everything, it can only be him.
Years ago he used some kind of power to that can poison obsessed humans and transform into humanity hating monster, then he also manually created Orochi and Vacinne Man and recently he gave powers to a human (Homeless emperor).
At the end of the day notice how those creations all hae exactly the same goal, destroying humanity.
T: I would like to watch a OPM movie ~
A: Me too! Script by ONE sensei, and handle by the original animation team! I still haven't receive the DVD, I'm waiting to watch it again on the big TV screen. Anyway, I need to make more and more updates, they can't make season 2 unless the tankoubon has 14 volume...sigh...it's alright it's alright, I'll make 8 updates with 100 pages each, no problem hahaha.
T: Will Madhouse be the producer if OPM ever make into a movie?
A: I'm not sure, maybe I'll involve in it too. In the world of adults, I can't really do much. Of course I hope it will be the same animation team to handle it, but I could only wish, still I'm really thankful to them. The series it self is having a good time too, and this is why ONE sensei is amazing, Saitama too ~ Full of renovation, a MC that worth the effort to be show on screen. ONE-san is truly amazing.
Great to know because HxH movies were complete shit(specially the 2nd one).
First you gotta find The Shirt, the rest is history.
>Centipedes. Possibly Do-S if ONE keeps Glasses. The slashing maniac
I like the idea of more powerful variations of the same monster, gives them a connected theme, which would make sense since they belong to the monster association, which bands different monsters and different groups of monsters together. It makes it seem that there's more to the monsters than complete randomness
>Master race guy is a fucking Garou rip-off
Are you retarded? How is the nazi, genetic superiority guy who uses a monster cell to artificially enhance his genetic power to a new level anything like Garou? Choze's goal was never to become a monster of to destroy the Hero Association, he just wanted to be stronger and maybe rule the world
They don't even look anything alike
>Cool. Kill yourself instead of propagating shit taste.
Why are they any worse than any other side characters we've seen so far?
>MA was also secretive and mysterious in the webcomic
You mean out of nowhere, with no buildup, only holding like 12 monsters, most of which got killed in the first chapter the MA is introduced? Seems to me like ONE is just expanding on the organization that is the MA, making them feel more like an actual threat with actual goals and plans instead of 10 monsters sitting in a circle doing basically nothing until they get raided
Its basically confirmed next volume is the last one that will be covered in Season 2.
Damn i expect some fights being offpaneled or getting a bunch of curbstomps(Garou vs WDM).
Humanity/HA is just calling any threat that isn't a human criminal a monster. "Natural" ones like the aliens and kings are different from ones that are transformed living beings because of "obsession" though, which is very likely to be only a thing on earth.
I'd say it sounds too soon, but at the same time before the MA arcs tends to end pretty fast, like Boros'.
Still think it won't end before volume 15.
Last problem is Orochi. A likely outcome would be that Saitama does something not on purpose that mortally wound him then Psykos kills him off, absorbs him and takes his place as the leader, then we see a glimpse of the main forces and season 2 ends. Season 3 can begin exactly at the webcomic chapter were we stopped, Garou vs Gatling & Genos.
It's reusing the same designs, period. it shows that ONE's not particularly fucking trying at this point.
>Are you retarded?
ARE YOU? Read what I fucking wrote. Bloody hell, look at the design in pic related and shut the fuck up you moron.
>Why are they any worse than any other side characters we've seen so far?
Unlike MA's fodder, these guys don't even have a backstory to tell. MA's fodder also served to develop numerous other characters, meaning, HA and Garou.
Tournament fags are just there to drag this arc out, literally.
>You mean out of nowhere, with no buildup, only holding like 12 monsters
It was supposed to be a mysterious organization you retard. The monster elite planning a mission to destroy humanity. They made a significant impact with that cast in no time too. There's no need whatsover to expand them to hordes of tigers and demons with pamphlets we're now seeing in the manga.
The point of the sneak attack and its effects were that only another esper could do it (Psykos), so I dunno. If something like that happens Orochi is definitely killed by Tatsumaki and somehow weakens her before kicking the bucket. And even then there is no way the part where Psykos weakens Tasumaki doesn't happens, so could be both, instead of a "replacement" it would be a more elaborated plan to weaken her.
And purist fags just want to cut out everything but the original. And probably wouldn't have been satisfied with leaving it at that, instead complimenting how much better the webcomic executed it because of One's exquisite "paneling" techniques.
"But man, that paneling, it's beautiful. Like, wow. I've never seen panel work like it before. A master of paneling, One is."
God. It's pathetic how people like you latch on to such things. This must be some sort of mental disorder, surely. I can't accept that it's just simple hipsterism.
>and it still is in the manga
They're blatantly advertising and recruiting - giving out pamphlets and free monster cells, they're raiding cities in broad daylight, while screaming about MA at every opportunity.
Are you a fucking moron or what.
>instead of casually telling Garou to kill 100 humans Psyk- Orochi will launch a grand TOURNAMENT as an initiation ritual for him and some filler dudes
Now that I think about it, Psykos' task in the webcomic makes no sense. They'd just offer him a monster cell, would they not? Like they do with everyone.
Don't talk shit about my wife.
They're not mysterious at all you faggot. Originally they could not even be discovered if not for Garou. Now everyone and their mom is aware of their existence, including non heroes.
Advertising and mysterious don't go together.
Monster elite and hordes of demon-tiger fodder don't go together.
It's the total fucking opposite of the webcomic you tard.
THEY FUCKING ATTACKED IN FIRST YOU RETARD.
Why would they need to hide now? In the webcomic the HA discovered them simply before they had plans to attack on their own. It's way more logical that way anyway.
What makes you think they don't have the cells stored at the base in abundance?
With how much focus is placed on the cells, I'm 200% sure they'll offer one to Garou, except it would deem the webcomic events obsolete and ONE will have to rewrite their conflict with Garou completely.
AND FOR WHAT PURPOSE YOU RETARD?
They are not supposed to strike until they're ready to carry out their mission to eradicate humanity you dumb faggot. In the webcomic their obsession with Garou accidentally compromised that plan and here they're fucking giving out tickets into their "mysterious" organization.
>He's sitting at the base and no way is Saitama gonna just fall onto him. That's too dumb.
It's Saitama, that's why I can see something like that hapening. Saitama wouldn't even understand he killed him or that he was the MA boss, just like he beat up Garou unknowingly and later is still saying he'll find him and beat him.
That's just secondary objective, they're taking the heroes.
No, that's their primary fucking objective. Preparation, loud and obvious. Forcing everyone and their mom to join, whereas Psykos' MA was focused on raising the elite in shadows.
They also kidnapped not any random kid, but a HA sponsor's son, so they're blatantly fucking screaming for attention.
The weirdest thing about this Doujin was that Fubuki never once took off her dress, we didn't see her boobs.
That and the whole "I'll use my TK to create a barrier in my uterus so I won't get pregnant. Oh no! I'm cumming so hard that the barrier broke and now I'm filled with semen!"
Show me a single panel from the fillershit that can hold a candle to a classic like pic related. Protip: you can't. Talk about effort ONE puts into his "drafts" and the real product.
So Murata just used a page from ONE's book?
When I was going through my 'drawing anime' phase in high school I used to draw my own hentai and fap to it.
It's a pretty interesting experience, feels kinda like incest because you are fapping to your own creations. I guess the best thing about it is all your material is specifically tailored to your own tastes.
I wonder if ReiQ faps to his own material or if drawing for such a long time just kind of inoculates you to getting aroused.
Because Murata expanded it. He can always go full retard and draw every millisecond of Garou flash stepping between heroes but if he does not, MA altogether can fit into 7 episodes without a hitch.
S1 was also supposed to end on Boros, yet with all the padding they still had the time to conclude the finale with some filler.
Do-S seems weak compared to other MA Demon monsters.
She seems weaker than Cockroach, Monster Choze.
And no I dont consider tanking Hell Storm a good feat, because that attack best feat is taking down a tiger monster.
Tats was right in calling it a shit attack.
You seem confused. I never complained about that.
I'm complaining about the fillershit which prevents us from seeing the entire Garou arc in S2. Murata does not need to expand anything because it's already both epic and funny enough, much better than the fillershit we'll have to endure in S2 now.
Get it, retard?
>still had the time to conclude the finale with some filler.
jesus christ are you retarded? It didn't end on filler, it ended on the note that Saitama is back to beating everyone with one punch after a halway exciting battle.
seriously any of the people crying filler are fucking stupid, why complain about more OPM when it's literally written by ONE?
Are you retarded? It ended on filler, period. The scene was not in the manga or the webcomic.
Padding aside, it makes the whole "b-but Boros took 3 eps" argument sound even more invalid. Especially when you compare it to Garou's finale, which makes a perfect non filler conclusion for the season already.
>It's reusing the same designs, period. it shows that ONE's not particularly fucking trying at this point.
It really isn't tho, for reasons I have already explained, just because there are monsters with similar or connected themes, doesn't mean that they're the exact same designs, that's like saying the heroes reuse the same design whenever we look at the fubuki group or the tanktoppers
Only a sith deals in absolutes Anon
>they both have horns
Oh wow, what a rip off, can't ONE think of anything original anymore?
>Unlike MA's fodder, these guys don't even have a backstory to tell
Who are you talking about? Gums? fast Robot guys? That other guy I don't even remember? Wow such backstories, such exploration of the characters, damn.
Also I'm not sure at this point whether you're talking about the monsters or the characters or what, how are the characters introduced in this arc any worse than previous arcs?
>Tournament fags are just there to drag this arc out, literally.
according to you
>It was supposed to be a mysterious organization you retard.
And now it's not? What are the monster cells? who is the monster king? What kind of monsters does the MA have in their arsenal? Could they attack again? What are their current plans? How many members do they have? etc. To me, this whole arc seems to be about expanding the monster association into an actual organization and not just an angry group of about 10 monsters, half of which have no characterization except for their deaths.
>They made a significant impact with that cast in no time too. There's no need whatsover to expand them to hordes of tigers and demons with pamphlets we're now seeing in the manga.
And they will probably still make a great impact when they get revealed, it's not like we're not going to get to that stuff, if anything their reveal and powers will be of greater payoff because of all the extra buildup, I imagine manga only readers especially will feel this
the Cavalry arc was a year of nothing happening. the MA, and now Tournament arc have battles almost every chapter. Garou fighting Saitama is the climax of the arc, not it's entire purpose, if you are waiting an entire arc for Saitama to do something you are having the wrong expectations of OPM, Saitama is used as a punchline to end the fight, all the other Heroes jobbing against Monsters makes up the bulk of OPMs panels.
I know it's ultimately ONE's choice. Dividing the arc into 2 cours was his most retarded decision by far. Can you imagine how much filler he'll need to add to MA now?
This is not "buildup", this is shamelessly dragging stuff out.
It is filler, retard. It's there to fill leftover space in the finale. It's not even fucking needed as the original arc ending or a hint at the arc to come would have sufficed.
>Can you imagine how much filler he'll need to add to MA now?
It worked with Bleach and Naruto.
Would be great if we get some of the secondary fights to be like Hisagi vs Findor.
You understand it well. Gosh, it's as if people aren't even excited for the MA arc, but the final battle against Garou instead. Always rushing towards the climax in an instant, as if blowing their load at the earliest instance is the most satisfying thing to do.
They're reused designs, PERIOD. Do you understand what the word means at all? Repetitive. Monster cells with Orochi are also too close for comfort to the whole God theme from the webcomic, which is why introducing this concept is downright idiotic.
Nazi dude is not just sporting horns, he's wearing the same fucking bio armor cosplay that Garou did, minus the scarf. That getup was unique in the webcomic.
>Who are you talking about?
The majority of monsters from MA, speedreading cocksucker. Most of them had a backstory to tell, and a couple of those were extremely important to the plot. The majority of tournament participants do not boast any fucking backstory, do not move other relevant/regular characters and do not introduce plot shattering concepts like God or Psykos' prophecy at fucking all.
If we take other characters, like some extras, tournament fags can't even elicit the same kind of sympathy that chief Kuma did in a single chapter, for example.
>And now it's not?
No it's fucking not you retard. They're literally giving out tickets inside. They already took HA's attention. You have no be fucking braindead not to see the giant difference between this MA and webcomic's MA, which was secretive and closed off.
This whole arc is to show that apparently you can turn people into monsters with some faggot's cells and then kill them immediately because they're fodder by definition. This whole arc is wasting time on pointless fights. Sheer numbers contribute to nothing and do not equal "good characterization" or "good buildup".
>yfw he'll be chasing the other kid
what has one done
ok sorry, apparently you know better to make a good OPM arc than ONE does.
It's really problematic that ONE and Murata are expanding on the series and not just redrawing the Webcomic 1:1. They are really wasting out time with these pointless fights and monster exposition when we have got to get to the interesting parts of the webcomic already.
Jesus christ I wish they could just trash this whole arc and just redraw the garou final fight, why do they waste our precious time with this inconsequential filler shit. I'm really mad about this.
Well the fact that people are questioning Murata constantly and expressing concerns with the manga's direction should tell you a lot about their acceptance of ONE's "new canon". If we use anime as an excuse, it's only partially at fault here because adapting the webcomic in one season is perfectly doable.
All in all, the webcomic was entirely self-sufficient and ONE has plenty of space to gradually develop things in new arcs. It's retards like you who'd gladly eat up MORE MONSTERS, MORE LITERALLY WHOS, MORE FIGHTS for 2 cours straight because such fillershit is apparently "proper buildup".
>Well the fact that people are questioning Murata constantly and expressing concerns with the manga's direction
That's just related to the fact that they think Murata is beginning to write his own thing.
Only retards keeps complaining after knowing it's all ONE.
And why would they think that? Probably because this part is blatantly shoehorned into the arc to drag it out. Reused concepts do not help either.
Only retards keep sucking ONE's cock now.
They literally did not tho just because they're all monstrous centipedes doesn't mean they have the same design, are you saying that charmander, charmeleon and charizard all have the same design as well? Are you unable to differentiate between the members of the Fubuki group as well?
Also what about all the monsters that are totally different from what we've seen so far, just cuz there are a few monsters with a connected theme, such as being a centipede or using sharp tools or being fast you make it seem like ONE is just giving us monster after monster of the same shit, which is absolutely untrue.
>Nazi dude is not just sporting horns, he's wearing the same fucking bio armor cosplay that Garou did
Jesus christ dude, we haven't even seen Murata Monster Garou yet and Choze wasn't in the webcomic, so you're pulling all of that straight out of your ass
>The majority of monsters from MA, speedreading cocksucker. Most of them had a backstory to tell
Like who asshole? Besides the Dragon elite, Most of which are mayor characters in their arc, almost no monster had any non-gag backstory
Devil long hair
Great food tub
Wow such AMAZING in-depth characters, what a backstory for each of them, goddamn
>The majority of tournament participants do not boast any fucking backstory
A lot of them do tho, for instance: Bakuzan, Suiryu, Sneck, Max, Sour Face and Zako all have backstories and motivations for why they want to win the tournament.
>do not move other relevant/regular characters
That's not what their role in the story is at this point in time, they're there to flesh out the tournament, to show fighting techniques and fighters from outside the association, not to fulfill the same role the monsters are just gonna fulfill next arc.
>do not introduce plot shattering concepts like God or Psykos' prophecy at fucking all.
That would be too much man, this arc introduces plenty
If One didnt expand the MA Saga, the likes of Metal Bat wouldve remained irrelevant, Genos wouldve seen as the biggest jobber ever, Drive Knight and WDM wouldve remained as WHO.
Suiryu vs Choze was better than most of the webcomic fights.
>ONE reuses the same fucking design
>b-but he doesn't because t-the size is different or something
>Choze is a Garou rip-off
>m-maybe Murata and ONE will turn Garou into a werewolf now, as if fillershit hasn't ruined the arc enough
Bloody hell, just kill yourself now.
Like Phoenix Man (who foreshadows the whole costume transformation hilariously), Vampire (who is a unique, ancient humanoid monster), Fuhrer (unique as the first ugmon we see), Hobo (also unique as the first creation of God we see), Psykos (ALSO has an entirely unique role in the monsterhood). There were monsters who are important and yet to have their story explained, like Rover and Sperm. These monsters had development. Other monsters served to develop characters and play foil to them, like Senior, Ripper, Bug God, Food Tub, Gums, ENW, for example. Then there was a couple of pure fodder guys, like Long hair, Robot bros and Glasses.
Sneck and Max don't have a backstory at all. They're recurring secondary heroes who're there to get their shit pushed in constantly. Choze, Sourface and Suiryu have a backstory for kicks but it is barely even important. Bakuzan and Zakos have mere mentions from the announcer.
Who gives a flying fuck why they want to win this tournament when it has 0 importance in the grand scheme of things? Even Garou's participation is left unexplained as it's just there to gather Saitama and a bunch of nobodies together for this filler fiesta. It's blatantly shoehorned.
>they're there to flesh out the tournament
By getting offpaneled? Only Max and Sneck got any real attention and their styles are already well known, otherwise we have Suiryu who can do SPINNY SHIT. Wow, that really fucking contributed, to the world of martial arts.
>this arc introduces plenty
Plenty of fucking filler. Don't choke on those monster cells tard.
One has all the arcs he needs to show off heroes and new threats. Claiming that
>if Metal Bat/WDM/DK didn't get their filler appearances now they'd be written out of the story weh weh
is retarded. Genos is still a jobber too lol.
You're clearly baiting but Choze was generic straight out of Blech crap. Cero, nazis and all.
>yfw they don't realize S3 literally won't happen now
Another hype death incoming.
At least they have the tournament.
Genos has collected plenty of wins in the current Manga Arc, 1 by outsmarting the opponent which was surprising, because all he does is lol incinirate.
Cant say the same for Fubuki because all she did in this Arc was act smug and then trolled.
> the rest were forgettable
You shut your whore mouth now.
They aren't crying over that, retard.
No one cares about this filler shit. I'd argue that the only people arguing for the filler shit are autism-level OPM fans who need to defend anything with the brand name on it.
You mean filler arc.
>Cant say the same for Fubuki because all she did in this Arc was act smug and then trolled.
Yeah, I love how the webcomic makes a point of saying this, then the extra chapter from like volume 2-3 makes this point, but then Murata/ONE felt the need to waste our time in this filler shit to iterate it once again.
But let's be honest, we all know they were just baiting fan artists and waifu idiots.
I was happy that Genos collected wins in this arc, because people laughed at Genos when he got caught offguard by Royal Ripper in the webcomic, calling him out for being made of paper mache.
In the manga Genos looks more competent.
>No one cares about this filler shit
No YOU don't care about this arc, acting like you're in the majority when you're the only one complaining in this thread is laughable. I'd argue that you don't even like OPM, just the MA arc and are fishing for (you)'s, so take it and fuck off
Based on what, don't make retarded assumptions without any evidence proving otherwise
>Season 3 in 3 years
Anon, it's never happening. S2 will kill the franchise. Not only does it not focus on Saitama, it butchers the beloved webcomic. A loss-loss kind of adaptation.
Like you all meme'd about S2 not happening because of Madhouse but now the threat of S3 getting this treatment is real because of ONE himself. Kinda poetic.
>not focusing on Saitama
what arc ever focused on Saitama you complete fucking retard? How does it butcher the "beloved" webcomic? If you think the webcomic is more anticipated than the Manga or the Anime you must be even dumber than I thought.
if you seriously believe that people didn't enjoy the Tournament, and especially Soriyu, there's just no helping you.
Just because Murata and ONE don't cater to your severe Autism, it doesn't mean the wide majority of OPM fans don't enjoy this arc.
Whoa a legitimate retard calling other people retarded.
Try to follow the story sometime. The only time focus shifted from Saitama's adventures was when Garou came in. Normalfags would want more Saitama, older readers would want a complete adaptation of their favorite webcomic arc. No party is getting either.
The manga butchers the webcomic and the anime will kill the whole series by splitting this mess in half, with the other half never, ever coming out. There's no animu miracle saved for OPM now.
Why did the thread have to turn into this faggotfest?
Imagine this, we live in a bizarro world where Saitama watching Anime and going to a Costume Competition for an entire Chapter is quality content,
but ONE redoing the Monster Association Arc with a new twist is a travesty and fillershit.
Good Posters, in this thread.
faggots who bitch about the Tournament arc know nothing of worldbuilding. ONE uses the opportunity to actually scale up the Monster Invasion and show the world outside the Hero Association. Build up some thread instead of having 4 dudes duke it out with a bunch of S-Class until Saitama shows up.
How can there even be filler in OPM? it's not like there's some big overarching story that needs to be told, or very deep and complex characterization. This is one punch man, I never read the manga cuz I couldn't wait to see the next epic character expansion or amazing monster backstory
I read it for fun and the tournament arc is fun, so I don't really see the problem
>ONE uses the opportunity to actually scale up the Monster Invasion
More unnecessary fights is your result.
>show the world outside the Hero Association
It's not like the existence of this world is painfully obvious and the entire new arc in webcomic is focusing on this.
