Manga is ending this arc, what are your final predictions?
why do people still read this garbage
I'm so confused by the addition of the Justice League with Super Blast if the manga is nearing its conclusion, what do they add?
>>237701256Just want to know who the other members of Blast's team are
>>237701568>>237701256there is absolutely zero evidence that it will end this arc. It may become completely different from the webcomic after this arc, but it surely won't end
>>237701256>supposed to satirize generic marvel schlock but actually turns into generic marvel schlockwho’s fault is this?
God isn't the final enemy
>>237701568To fight GOD and then invite Saitama to the multiverse.The end.
>>237701568Murata is capeshit fag, voice of reason does not apply, this is his idea of cool
THE GANGS ALL HERE!
>>237701256>Ending the MA arcAbout fucking time
so no table flip ?
What the fuck was the point of garou's limiter breaking if this is how it endshe starts breaking through against darkshine and he uses it to kill a centipede introduced to wank him and instantly lose to saitama?What the fuck was the point
>>237701256I'm quite intrigued as to what's the point of bringing characters like Blast up in the plot and reviving others who have definitely died in the past like Boros. With One I couldn't predict what would happen next but somehow I could see the logic. But with Murata, well, I don't know... knowing in advance what's coming, this kind of thing confuses me.
The dimensional seal = the fourth wallWhen it breaks the manga artstyle will go webcomicYou heard it here first
>>237701256Saitama announces on a genocide on everyone not associated with Hero Association. Genos and Tatsumaki work together with the Monster Association to stop Saitama. Saitama genocides 80% of the world before Tatsumaki decapitates him and makes out with his head. Saitama admits to Genos he doesn't know why he committed genocide and that only God knows. Fubuki gets impregnated by a farmer.
>manga is endingsource???
>>237703430>When it breaks the manga artstyle will go webcomic>one takes over and gives us a proper ending This would be great but will never happen
>>237703316Why would we add goku?
>>237703430lol imagine if this entire manga turned out to be an advertisement for the webcomic the entire time. i would get down on my knees and worship murata
>>237701256>ALTERNATE DIMENSION LEAGUE WITH BOROS AND BLASTpoggers pogging pogpogpogthis cant be real webcomicsisters
>>237703286I like what Murata is doing but THAT, would be criminal.
In the years to come, I really want to know what happened between ONE and Murata. The manga was almost a 1:1 adaptation from the webcomic. Why the shift of narrative? Jeez, is fascinating.
Smurf a shit.
smurf a shit
okay murata apologists, riddle me on thishow do you make this sequence have the same impact as it did in the webcomicno, it doesn't have to be "the same", just tell me how we go from the ending of the current manga chapter to this in a way that makes sense, delivers a comparable impact and doesn't feel like a dogshit fanficI'm waiting
>>237708537Who care for same impact? Murata will do it better as always.
>>237703286Literal table flip, you rike?
>>237702830>ONE is complacent with the story being ruinedSo we finally realize both of them are hacks. Can we move on now?
>>237708935but we still have opm's webcomic
>>237702843Need an edit of these two sitting together in the "the soul" panel
Blast and his multiverse squad are incredibly lame. I'm really curious if they'll show up in the webcomic eventually. That would be the final confirmation of who is the true hack, if ONE or Murata.
>>237709505I agree and disagree. He's right on the world of OPM not needing much deep lore, but he's wrong on the worldbuilding to some extent. The worldbuilding is needed so parts of the story can be consistent and not contradict earlier things shown or established or about to be.
reminder this was the first time ONE drew saitama
>>237701256Tfw when they're alternate versions of villains Saitama has fought before
>>237709505What an idiotic post. The latest webcomic chapters are full of worldbuilding, it's when we got the infodump about the world being post-apocalyptic, a gigantic continent, etc, and Saitama himself is in the background most of the time while we follow other characters PoV.
>>237709674Saitama is the God of that dimension trying to break into the hero's dimension, Blast didn't recognize saitama because the evil one has a lot of hair,
I genuinely think OPM would be a top ten, probably top five manga if they had stuck to the original formula of adapting the webcomic 1:1.5 into the manga. Now it's barely top 30. Wasted potential sucks to see
>>237709674Lemme guess. They come from an alternate universe where they were the ones who broke their limiters instead of Saitama?
>>237709793>genuinely think OPM would be a top ten, probably top five manga if they had stuck to the original formula of adapting the webcomic 1:1.5 into the manga.It honestly deserves more popularity than MHA.
These guys were an afterthought in their own arc.Do-S will probably have more screen time then all of them but Sperm once the redraws are done
This page is a callback to so many things.Love the attentive look on Saitama.
>>237709950I think Saitama, Garou and King should all be friendsWould be the best chemistry in the story kek
>>237709917Ugly was the highlight of the arc, and you can tell Murata had a lot of fun drawing him.
>>237710031He was the highlight until he turned into a slime and was shitty like the rest of it
>>237710109Are you implying Blast is Alt Garou?They have the same eyebrows kek.
>>237710188Who knows anon I was genuinely surprised when they showed alt boros
>>237710188>same eyebrows>Garou tells Tareo basically the same thing Blast told Tatsumaki>will look even more similar when Garou gets short hair
At this point I fully expect it'll be revealed that King's luck is actually from a Stand and he's turned into a shitty jojo parody
>>237710218people keep saying it's an "alternate dimension Boros", but couldn't it just be a member of the same race? I don't recall Boros ever saying that he was the last of his racealso I know I'm gonna get shit for this, but as someone who hasn't read the webcomic, I still think the story is fine in the manga, even the comparison pages that people post aren't convincing me much that the story and pacing is "so much better" in the webcomic
>>237710031he was better in the webcomic.
>>237710370It's also the lion which could be beast king which possibley confirms the alt theory
>>237710415Blast is the actual final villain?Shocking.
>>237709145Fuck you, you sociopath.
OPM would've been a masterpiece if it ended after Boros.Not everything needs to be stretched on forever. Imagine if Kafka tried to continue the Metamorphosis after Gregor died - it would've sucked.
>>237710414Definitely not, he was the most underused cadre.
>>237701256Do not care. It made one arc too many.
>>237710529The fucking scar too.
>>237709912Not in its current form. They had a winner and fucking blew it. Happens all the time. Luckily One still has Mob.
Anyone read anything actually good lately? I recently finished Dead Souls. That was great.
>>237710530He easily smashed Genos apart and gave Tatsu a good beating and I also liked the transformation he had more. I do like some of the changes in the manga but he should've just died to give Bang his moment.
>>237710720>He easily smashed Genos apartYou're misremembering, Sperm and Gums tore him apart, Ugly didn't even touch him. And a single punch to Tatsumaki is not much to write home about.
>>237710414Oh yes, he ended up very differently and became a real freak in the webcomic..
>>237701256I like the direction the manga is going in with Blast and alternate dimensions. ONE probably realized the neo-hero shit is way too bloated and uninteresting.
>>237710973This looks freakish but doesn't look strong. How can those spaghetti arms possibly feel dangerous? Well, no matter,he gets killed immediately after.
>>237711034>Just like my favorite marvel movie!
>>237711088Try fighting an orangutan and tell us how weak those "spaghetti arms" are
>>237709793You’re genuinely retarded.OPM would never be as popular as that piece of trash because OPM is not a manga about schoolchildren for self-inserters.
>>237703526Are you OK Anon?
>>237711221Orangutans have arms with 4 different joints?
>>237711088Bang is an old man he kills Dragon level Monsters.
>>237701256new chapter is out? where?
>King never got to see Tatsumaki's panties in the manga..
>>237711318You think snakes and octopuses aren't strong either?
>>237710415blast is blacked incarnate?
>>237711336And Bang used to look badass, before they roided him.
>>237711286>about schoolchildren for self-inserters.Garou ring a bell?
>>237709145Bless you, empath.
>>237711430Oh so he can't punch anymore, and he's supposed to squeeze his enemies to death? Kinda lame and unfitting for a monster that is 100% brutality and has attacks like Face Caving Punch, but I honestly doubt that was the intention.
>>237711584Throwing haymakers is strong.Like an ugly slenderman.
>>237701256I'm putting together a team
Madhouse please adapt the webcomic.Save us.
>>237701256This Manga has too many leaning-into-gay moments.
>>237711830Murata is a fujoshitter.
>>237711680I really hate how Boros looked at the start, that big eye turned upwards and big head make him look like a gay moeblob.
>>237708537Let's be honest, this plot works on the webcomic actually because of the rough art. If Murata draws this sequence verbatim, without all the changes and redraw shit he's doing, it will still be shitty shonen talk no jutsu against the edgy tryhard.
God, this is so shit. Tableflip dialed up to 11 would have been a lot cooler.
>>237710109Nah the big one is malfurion
>>237711584Don't think you realized how strong a python's strike is.You just can't punch a gator to death
It does feel like the manga is ending and why Murata dragged out this arc and added all these new original things. Since he wants to wrap up things.
>>237711910>webcomic>shitty shonen talk no jutsu against the edgy tryharddid you read the webcomic?
>>237711336AHHHH A CENTIPEDE GENOS HELP MEAHHHH A DOG FUBUKI PLS
>>237711888Nah, he just panders to them constantly. Which is a big mistake if you want a bigger collective audience. Most people don't want to see blatant teasing of a ship that'll never happen, especially if it's yaoi. And once it begins to make up good portion of fan works (like Saigenos), it starts to alienate everyone not into the ship from the fandom; Which is anyone not a fujoshi or gay.
Never forget what they took from you.
>>237712209They never took that away
>>237712248show me the panel from the manga
>>237711497Garou is a dropout, an adult and chicks aren’t falling tits first over him, retard. And he experiences actual challenge all the damn time. Self-inserters that came from shounenshit spaces are literally seething because he’s not a one-liner throwing edgelord for them to self-insert onto.
What went so horribly wrong
>>237712248They just made it shitty and unimpactful.
>>237701284Why do you comment if it's garbage? fucking idiot
>>237712488Garou is much more of a self-insertable character in the manga. He's got "woe is me" and "Sorry, sensei" and tropey shit falling out of his ass.
>>237712488>Garou is a dropout,Source?
>>237703384That faggot never broke anything
>>237712781>ONLY SAY NICE THINGSNo.
The art is completely devoid of soul ever since his father died, it's very impressive but there's no soul at all. He must have had a strong bond with his father.
>>237712948Damn did he dad die rip
>>237701256>Manga is ending this arc,Source
>>237703447This reminds me of something...
>>237713039Yeah, his father died somewhere during the PsykOrochi fight IIRC.
>>237710719I mean it was intended to mock OP Superheroes/Shonen Heroes then it became interesting cause of the unironic comedy in it all but then after the anime 1st season it became boring/stale and fell on sales
>>237713069I am Yusuke Murata
>>237708820You tell em muratasister!!! The manga is 100% epic AF and much much better than muh deep storytelling.
>>237712836He literally left school to study the bla- fist.
>>237712488>edgelords>shounenfags>self-insertersdamn, thats a lot of straw man
>>237712812The fuck are you yapping about moron? Self-inserters cling to characters who are effortlessly macho badass or immune to failure and get a fucking harem of stammering fangirls or outright sluts. Also blank slates that are miraculously blessed. A unibrow kid crying his heart out for misunderstood suicidal Garou is not characterization for self-inserters, Garou is too loaded of a person for them, who feels vulnerable and struggles all the time.
>>237713645Maybe Garou is more appealing to the tumblrites who call him their trash son. Fujos and the like love him.
>>237713675Garou appeals to any normal reader who reads something for characters as they are. These past few years he’s been the only OPM character who gets story related fanart from nips that’s not porn or shippingshit.
>>237703447Kek not even opm at its lowest is comparable to the dumpster fire that was snk
>>237713804SNK was great at first, even as good as the webcomic.
>>237701568If the next arc isn't God vs The Not!Justice League, then they were 100% invented to hype up a spinoff.
>>237714059The second Blast has to actually fight and not be like Saitama is when all his mystique is ruined.
>>237701256>Manga is ending this arcWas this actually confirmed?
>>237701256I hope Murata partners with someone who can actually write next. Or finishes Berserk for Miura with the latter's staff.
>>237713990Then why was it so much more popular than OPM at it's peak? And has better threads? And a larger fanbase?
>>237710530I prefered him getting btfoed by Bang
>>237696736Garou just shifted the magnetic pole faggot.
>>237713780Manga Garou is a joke, he doesn't even resemble his previous self IN the manga and not in a character development way, but in a bad writing way
>>237714365>popular= goodkys snktard
>>237694534Wasn't everyone on his planet shown looking different?
>>237714647>>popular= goodIn this case, Yes.>kys snktardCry about it, bitch.
What's it with Saitama monologuing everything?I remember he even told gary to shut up during their fight
>>237710664So this is how Saitama v. Garou will continue from here.We just replace Garou with another, stronger Garou.
>>237714477bro, your proof?
>>237714777Aids is pretty popular you should try and acquire some if you already dont have it faggot
>>237701284>why do people still read this garbageMurata OPM is like bayformersIs fun
Is there any other manga that shat the bed harder than Muratas OPM? Dragon ball got worse after Namek, sure, both art- and story-wise. Berserk got pretty bland and boring after too many characters were introduced and Miura started to prefer lolis over high-t males, but there were some cool later chapters. But OPM? Everything looks clean, fanservice got boring and too on the nose, art declined rapidly, OC donut steel characters all suck, redraws are worse in every single instance, story changes are shit. I hate Murata so much it's unreal.
EL HERMANO DE LAS BOROSO!!!!
>>237715663SnK is the most obvious answer.
>>237715835Welp forgot about that one. But it's also the easiest to fix, theoretically. Just replace the last 10 or so chapters with something good and you get a decent series with ups and downs.
>>237715663What? This sucks as an adaptation, but it's perfectly fine as a stand alone. It's like FF7 and FF7r or Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross. With the context of the original/first one, the remake/sequel sucks, but they're fine when ignoring that context.
>>237708537>garou sense of duty was beating up heroes by holding back, without killing themkek
>>2377153911. Warping the magnetic fields isn't the same thing as shifting the poles, retard.2. What the fuck does this have to do with the axis of rotation? The earth doesn't rotate around the magnetic north pole retard.
>>237715663There are worse but this is definitely up there.
>>237715143No, thanks. Unlike you, I try to stay away from things that would kill me.
>>237715663>fanservice got boringMore like became too much. Way too many sexy chick covers. And the male characters bodies got more sexualized; their legs look curvier and their asses got slightly thicker.
>>237716759Now that I think about it: How could I forget Shamo? But at least up to that certain fight, Shamo is much better than Muratas OPM ever was.
>>237715835SnK was till readable up to the last 10 chapters. Juan puncher choked so early and there's still a lot of webcomic parts to adapt.
>>237716639I don't think that it's fine on its own. Not at all. Also I give you Chrono Cross, but FF7R? No. Didn't play it btw.
>>237701256You just know murata watched the new doctor strange and said to himself "I want my own multiverse" so now we have Blast and the not Avengers fighting alternate universe versions of Boros and Beast King.Why did murata have to be such a shounen/capeshit addicted retard?
>>237714141To be fair, isn't that the big hope with his character? That Blast shows up one day and is revealed to be as strong as Saitama?
>>237710529So tatsumaki is a transgender boy?
>>237702583>>237702830>One, clearlyYes, since ONE is the one who writes the story and there's zero proof to the contrary otherwise.
>>237709635ONE really had a talent for drawing simple, funny expressions
>237717836Low quality bait
>>237703447WOW sounds like an amazing plot
>>237711910>villain loses completely beforehand>his conversation with saitama leaves him so disheartened, he accepts deathyeah this is definitely a cliche talk no jutsu coming from our shonen protagonist
Wonder if the sun webcomic is ending?
>>237718057>yeah this is definitely a cliche talk no jutsu coming from our shonen protagonistI hate Murata so much
>>237715663Murata has given up, the latest chapter was his suicide letter
>>237709145Kill yourself, faggot.
>>237717836You'd ride in onto auschwitz yourself if it called itself a day camp
Is Murata Toyotaco's seinen equivalent? I don't know any other people in this subset who also notoriously meddled with someone else's story and making it worse in doing so. They've got some awfully similar vibes too.
>>237703526Nobody is going to keep reading after Murata failed to deliver on his adaptation of peoples favorite arc. Especially after 5 years of padding and redraws.
>>237716753Why has the manga gotten so weird with physics lately?
>>237718219Why did he make Miles so ugly?
>>237710529>The alternate Garou who decided to become absolute good
>>237718440I accept your concession.
>>237710690The latest chapter of opm.
>>237701256Who the fuck are those literal whos?
>>237721372El Hermano de Boros
>>237701256as this arc cemented Fubuki as the Mvp and Fmc of the series, i bet she cures Saitama's baldness in the last chapter
>>237717836>mob s3 announced>manga nosedives>last wc chapter dropped shortly after, nothing since then ONE does not give a shit about OPM. MOB is his baby and his passion project, clearly he has given the final season his full attention. You can literally see in the OPM manga when this happened, ONE skips out to work on MOB S3 and Murata gets more autonomy over the manga adaptation. These recent chapters confirm Murata has full reign. This shit has zero semblance to ONE's writing/storytelling. Genuinely if ONE has any hand in it at this point he is completely washed and should hang up the pen for good. However, I think he is just checked out and honestly the blame also falls on him for not wrangling the retard that is Murata.
>>237717686>"I want my own multiverse" so now we have Blast and the not Avengers fighting alternate universe versions of Boros and Beast King.ONE is the writer of the story not murata you schizo.
>>237722140>This shit has zero semblance to ONE's writing/storytellingThe last page of the recent chapter is literally like ONE's storytelling where characters have an actual dialogue instead of just fight you secondary. Take your fucking meds.
>>237721416I don't understand this ship. Is it all because of One Hurricane?
>>237722207you are an actual fucking retard if you believe that and I doubt you even have read the webcomic
>>237717686>You just know ONEONE, you mean ONE, not Murata. Giving an artist like Murata to ONE, is like handing Michael Bay to a Dragon Ball Z fan.
>>237702830>thing needs to be unenjoyable for muh irony!It's just a funny webcomic, kys you suggestion subversion obsessed tranny piece of shit
>>237722254How much of a shit do you think ONE gives about webcomic autism?
>>237722232You don't understand the ship between the MC and the female character that has spent the most time interacting with him?
>>237702830You're dumber than a brick. A story like One Punch Man, is ONLY POSSIBLE, because of a writer who thoroughly understands and loves shonen.You don't know what ONE would be like if he had top notch art skills.
>>237702830>coombaitfuck off with this tranny grift already
oh wow the murata defense force has arrived people
>>237722342>>237722319>>237722308>>237722207Leddit special forces are here, please fuck off back
The manga sucks and Muhammad is a pedophile
>>237701256Holy shit it’s just like the avengers that’s so frickin kino
>>237722232Not really.Hurricane came because of the ship.
>>237718219Looks like he just traced over Tatsumaki to draw Gwen. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Oh man, I didn't expect all my shitposting about Boros coming back to actually become true.
>>237720966You literally got btfo by a jew analogy >>237718440 you damn dirty kike lmao
>>237717765The whole point of Blast is that he IS Saitama.
>>237723508>>237723508>The whole point of Blast is that he IS Saitama.Headcanon much?
>>237701256Literally this https://youtu.be/oBqqI6NMeaM?t=40 but against God and his fiends.
Moonbros... what is our endgame?
>>237702843Need to add Murata smiling face in the window
>>237703286>>237703404iirc the table flip flipped the monster assn off the ground. in the manga, the monster assn was destroyed during tatsumaki's fight.
>>237722342because of coombrains such as yourself we can't have nice things
Where...?It's like how you can't write a character to be "smart" or "intelligent" if the writer himself isn't.
>>237723656Just kill yourself already, your /v/ meme was never funny.
>>237701256Imagine if we got there naturally after the Neo Hero arc in the webcomic. That would have been really great with all the development of the other characters and the new ones we got. Btw was this Justice League ONE idea or not?
>>237701256i dont care what comicfags say or cry about, garou trying his hardest to be evil but only being able to save people unconsciously and saitama rubbing it in his face is kino as fuck
I wanna rape the big titty elf
Is the cyclops alien supoosed to be gb Boros? So Borssia/Booba? A big titty cyclops alien? Also Boros' childhood friend and the one who have a crush on him
what couldve been...
>>237724280MURATA AND HIS FUCKING CHANGES REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
>>237701256Remember when this kind of stuff was played for laughs. This page is trying to be serious. Let that sink in.
So Blast recognized Saitama's power and just didnt say anything?Didn't recruit because he's too apathetic about the world?
>>237724327No OPM still had unsolved mysteries like Blast, the crazy cyborg or King's power . If it was a 1:1 adaptation, it would still be a masterpiece, especially the MA arc.
>>237724280how do you fuck up this bad?
>>237724351Lmao what a downgrade
>>237717533Most sane people moved on soon after Marley started, the previous arcs already had major issues but the sudden shift to boring ww1 theme with 0 intrigue killed it
>>237724396>Blast, the crazy cyborg or King's powerStuff nobody cares about
>>237714059>new chapter releases>comicfags: WHAT DO YOU MEAN ITS NOT A COMPLETE 1 TO 1 ADAPTION OF EVERY LINE, PANEL, AND POSE??? THIS IS ALL MURATAS FAULT EVEN THOUGH HE DOESNT DO THE WRITING AND IT AS ALRADY SAID THE MANGA WAS GOING TO GO A DIFFERENT ROUTE!
>>237724381Saitama's power is only apparent when he's fighting. I don't think he's ever directed a serious attack at the earth like Garou did.
Hopefully Saitama will just beat up Blast and the others when they come for Garou, and then God will attack, and then Saitama beats him, the end.
Consider this for a second though:1. Mob is goated2. We're getting a season 3
>>237724499You have poor reading comprehension. Which is fine. You'll grow up one day.
I gotta say I was losing the hype with the Centipede shit but I do like the direction Murata took with Garou here
Something to remember: One Punch Man defenders are either children to people in their teens (a shonen's intended audience) or someone who is more easily impressed by visual stimuli like explosions and over the top fights at the expense of narrative than they are the type that gets fulfillment from the story itself. They will defend the pretty pictures over logic and story cohesion like a rabid dog and they won't understand why. They're not getting anything from OPM. Right now, this comic is just a man playing with action figured. Thete is no substance left.
>>237724436>drop in the quality of the writing and art. What happened?
>>237708537It had no impact in the webcomic. The joke of Saitama bursting bubbles in which self-important blowhard villains live had been done to death at that point. And that's exactly what happens here, Garou is clinging to the hope that there is some profound reason behind the strength of the man who defeated him, because that still allows him to feel self-important.
>>237724499>>237714059wasnt trying to quote
>>237709917>Do-S will probably have more screen time then all of themas a coomer I'm fine with this. I've given up on the story but murata still makes top tier female designs
>>237718057>villain loses completely beforehand>his conversation with saitama leaves him so disheartened, he accepts death>yeah this is definitely a cliche talk no jutsu coming from our shonen protagonistWell... yes. Literally the defining fucking example of TnJ that gave the trope its name was done after the villain already was defeated in battle, and resulted in the villain killing himself. Geez, no wonder you take a parody story seriously, being so unfamiliar with what it parodies.
>>237724778how were you able to coom on murata's art? I often find murata'a art unattractive. There are other good mangaka arts that beats out murata's art.
>le talk no jutsugarou has always been shown to be all fucking talk at heart when it came to being an evil monster. it just took saitama shoving it in his face just how much better he was at accidentally being a hero than purposefully being a monster and that considering hes the one obstacle so far that he cant brute force through, maybe he should hear him out
>>237724752ONE stopped tard-wrangling murata
>>237709145Bless you, straight man.
>>237703750>haha imagine if the manga that sells and makes money is an advertisement for a free webcomic haha epic lol
>>237724660Season 3 is basically the rest of the story, right?
>>237701256What if the manga continues?
>>237725503basically yeahthey only got like 10 chapters to go through, plus 7 if they included the reigen spin-off
>>237709635>>237717914>this one little doodle is more soulful and funny than anything Murata has ever producedHow is this even humanly possible?
>>237710529>>237710664How does Blast having a grown up son factor into this?
>>237725503season 3 still has 1 mini story, 1 major arc, and 1 final arc. It has than enough material for a full season
>>237722232There's not that many important females in the manga who even interacted with Saitama. That's enough for the ship.
>>237722232Nope it's because they are the biggest and fubuki is unironically the female main character of OPM
>>237724458Marley and beyond was still a lot more interesting to talk about regardless of its issues and threads would normally last up for weeks. Juan puncher and its threads die very early and got barely any discussion going on despite being released twice a month.
>>237725797Most sane people moved on soon after the redraws started, the previous arcs already had major issues but the sudden shift to boring MA vs HA theme with 0 intrigue killed it.
>>237718219he dindu nuffin
>>237703286Saitama will flip THAT table in the room instead.
>>237725832I dunno how to tell you this anon, but people read action manga for the action
So what happened to the webcomic anyway? What's one been doing for the last year
>>237715663Let's be real, even Kengan Omega didn't shit the bed as hard
What's with Japan and the obsession of "GOD is Le Bad"?
>>237716639>7r>fine on its ownWhat's it like living with brain damage?
>>237726444anime tries really hard to be anti-authoritarian and god is the ultimate authority. it's funny how these days if you have a christian character be the good guy it's surprising.
>>237726428I dunno, I've done nothing but seethe about Kengan ever since Sandro offed Eddie in the most retarded way possible. Honestly it was all down hill since Ohma was brought back.
>>237726487We seethe but it's still funny. These threads are all hilarious. OPM threads are 100% rage
>>237726444Because he is bad
>>237726483Christians are pretty fucking awful.
>>237726495Mostly because of pseudo intellectual "muh parody" and "muh gag manga" fags along with the ONEfags
>>237726444It's just "kami!" not the G O D or Yahweh.>>237701256Fubuki vs Psykos when?
>>237726597they're right tho
I stopped reading muratard's garbage a long time ago and I'm glad I did
>>237726745listen, you make a good point, but do you look like that girl in real life? can you be my girlfriend?
>>237726775No way fag. Autistic girls, kohais, and gyarus only
>>237726817it's too late... you're on the list.
>unironically has a better arc than GarouIt fucking hurts bros
>>237726951Didn't she kill hundreds because she was butthurt about losing her loved ones? What about THEIR loved ones?
>>237715663It didnt shat the bed because it didnt even try to stay the course.It was a webcomic adaption until like ch- 60-90, then the webcomic adaption DIED and it became Muratas shonen battle manga using stolen world ONE created.All other manga you might think of didnt actually change creative directors midway trough.
>>237710414Actually I'd argue the uggo was the only genuine improve over the webcomic during this arc. That's it, until he turned into a puddle of diarrhea and got fucking ruined just like everything that gets retconned or redrawn
Weirdly I actually think both sides in this manga vs webcomic controversy are right. The Garou arc was better in the webcomic, but the change was still for the better. Reason being that I think what is happening is that the Garou arc has become a necessary sacrifice to improve OPM as a whole. This is because while the webcomic was essentially a series of good self-contained stories with little link to each other, the manga is one overarching giant plot in which each arc is only a small part. Necessarily, this means that the impact and importance of each arc has to be diminished. Likewise, the role each arc’s villain/MC (like Garou) plays must be shrunk to establish more connections to the overall plot villain (God). So while it certainly made the arc itself worse, I think the story as a whole will be better for it and it’ll pay off many times over in the future - we just have to be patient.
>>237723508>still this delusional
>>237715663Kengan omega has been utterly abhorrent for the last +100 chapters and it's only getting worse. At this point a fan can only mald or treat it as a parody manga.
>>237727201It's still really fun and has some alright parts. OPM is just 100% trash now.
>>237726308There's good action manga. Then there's bad action manga. OPM used to be the former
>>237727212Mmmeh the ups don't compensate the lows. We got maybe one or two reasonably good chapters lately and then back to the lamest foreseable outcomes. I do agree OPM is more consistently shitty tho
>>237727281Its been shit for literally 4 years nowWhat the fuck. How did you miss the humor abruptly ending, the filler, the filler characters, the filler dialogue etc?
>>237727281I wouldn't call Omega good but at least it's enjoyable, if only ironically. Honestly I didn't mind the purgatory vs kengan tournament since I read it all in one go. Some fights and characters were underwhelming but it was alright. The actual trash started with Eddie.
>>237716639The remake should be fine with no context while bad with context, versus being better than the original with fun extras? Should have said Chrono trigger to the DS version or something
I wonder if people consciously realize that if Murata died right now it would directly improve their lives?
>>237724743>TheteAhh nice try retard but your spelling mistake renders your comment null and void
>>237718279Such wasted potential, FUCK
>>237727299I have to admit the webcomic hype and OMG SO DETAILED SO MUCH QUALITY got me blind and hooked like a bitch until the phoenix redraws or so happened. Before that I still saw a steady decline but I really didn't mind that much, I just hoped it would eventually get better when the arc reached the climax. But then... I finally realized shit would only get lamer and even the art wasn't as appealing anymore. And here we are now.
>>237727033To be fair she had reached almost Guts tier suffering at that point>born in eastern Europe>parents are blown to smithereens, gets stuck next to a bomb for an entire day and had to sit there hoping it wouldn't go off, all while she was eight>tortured by nazis for a decade>put in solitary confinement>when she's freed, gets manipulated by a genocidal robot>said robot kills her only loved one and she can literally feel his soul leaving his body>tries to be a good person and is immediately prosecuted as a dangerous weapon>has to kill her boyfriend, then watches him get revived and killed again so it meant nothing>has a mental breakdown and lives in a fake world where she's happy only for the government to destroy itAt that point I'd be Machiavellian too
>>237727397Does anyone even call her out for the hundreds of lives she ruined?
>>237727397>born in eastern Europestopped reading there, that's already too much for any human to bear
Don't care about the plot anymore but Murata better deliver great coom materials with this new titty monster.
>>237726444Why does he look like he's about to shit
>>237727430She only speaks to two people in between that and going full psycho so no, but personally I wouldn't yell at the schizophrenic magic woman until she calmed down a little
>>237727383As a fan of webcomic the early chapters had really rough art, then it got better over time and climaxed at the garou battle vs saitama, and kept good into the next part of the story. Reading the manga for early parts was really nice since it felt less abstract, you simply got more visual information about what the characters were doing and it was more enjoyable than webcomic, but it had issues with pacing. Too low density pages, paneling was bad as in a page that should've had 6 panels had 2-3. This bad pacing was ever-present, and webcomic was simply better experience when the art got good enough.From that perspective when the pacing got even worse thanks to EVEN MORE filler, and the manga stopped having any relation to the webcomic I just saw it for what it was; boring, shitty, unoriginal battle shonen that had bad paneling and pacing on top of a shit story. Whenever I saw a scene that wasn't from webcomic I could make guesses like "this will have zero humor or actual relevance to anything" and "these characters are gonna be discarded really fast and have no impact" and start skipping dialogue.To me the point between ending of webcomic adaption and turning into mostly a murata battle manga was around ch 91.
Is there ever going to be a redraw that addresses what happened to Do-S? What about Phoenix Man, Maiko Plasma and the Catfish Man?
>>237724827It's okay to be gay. Don't believe anyone who tells you otherwise.
>>237727252It's serviceable. Something to read when I'm in the mood for over-the-top spectacle. It does suck that the strong character interactions have taken a hit this arc though, that I'll agree
>>237727598Didn't she get consumed by the orochi slime?
>>237727473Murata will be forgiven for all transgressions if he releases all the hentai of the OPM ladies he's drawn
>>237726444They still can't get over the fact that their ways often suck and that's why they get their shit handed to them on a regular basis. It's must be some divine evil power that has a grudge with almighty Japan and repeatedly stops it from reaching ultimate glory and dominance. Something like that.
>>237727667That was the cow chick, though if it's never addressed I guess all the monsters that survived got eaten by Orochi.Murata also completely forgot that the ninjas were on the surface, and that volume has already been published so he can't fix it
>>237727865I guess it can get fixed by just throwing "escaped ninjas" picture at the end of the arc
>>237727911Then why even redrawing their scene in the first place?

What are the chances that Bones would adapt OPM when they are finally done with MP100? It's no brainer that only an above average adaption can remove this series from its current state of stagnation.

His eye was uncovered the entire time.Is the next cope "the table flip is still possible"? Now that Garou vs. S-Class is completely gone, same with Garou threatening to murder Tareo in front of the downed S-Class. Same with Fubuki vs. Psykos getting shafted completely.
>>237725528"10" chapters is more like 100 with all the .1 .2 .3 .4 etc
>>237725604You have to realize that most people don't read the webcomic, hence why they don't understand why their "Dude, I got it, all my predictions are 100% true" theories are bullshit. That's also why you get "I don't see anything wrong with the manga" left and right.

>>237729965What the fuck happened to Psykos, actually? I seem to have completely forgotten what became of her. Last I can remember it was Drive Knight and Genos throwing energy beams at her.She could stil ambush Fubuki for some fanservicefight, further extending this goddamn arc.

>>237734562I want Fubuki to whip her with DoS's whip.
I want her back!
>>237734413>>237734562Why did Murata remove her from the story?
Why in the fuck would I read this manga after the arc? it's only saving grace was Garou. And no not for the edgy pandering, but he was the only decent character with good action around him, the rest of heroes are bland and boring and feel like npcs in cosplays. Saitama is certainly better, but his trope got boring quickly.
>>237735135the other heroes are funny, Garou usually not except when Saitama unknowingly fucked with him
>>237734906Murata barely ever plan foreward, he draw what he thinks would be cool at any given moment
>>237727720You make a good point. Japs before believed that they are blessed by god and one can beats them, they were even on a winning streak in meiji era, but eventually they got beaten so hard that they got nuked, twice. So all this appreciation to god turning to resentment is not that illogical.
>>237735218>funnyonly to 12 years old and low iq retards. Just like marvel.
>>237729352Frankly, i can live with the story changes and that because ultimately we will always still have the webcomic for the original version, but why in the holy fuck did Murata clearly have the right idea with the design as late as that, but then decided on the fucking Alienware look? Im not even mad, just really confused by that.

But still this dude probably can’t fathom why his series failed while ONE’s horribly drawn webcomics succeeded. I don’t know if it’s arrogance or lack of respect for ONE or what, but these changes read like their made by someone who believes they know better than the creator. Now that ONE is gone, Murata is really trying to put his own mark on series to make it his own.
>>237701256>Manga is ending this arc, what are your final predictions?One-Punch man wins by punching the bad guy
>>237726444They got rekt by westeners bringing the word of GOD

>>237709039No you don’t that shit is not getting finished
>>237716639This is a retarded comparison. FF7R NEEDS you to play the original to understand what the fuck is going on with the time jannies.
>>237712763How the fuck was that impactful? Is overhyping shit worth it at this point?
>>237736785But that's not how and why Garou lose in the web comic
>>237739940Have you read the webcomic?
>>237726444I thought it was because the imperial japanese elite were super into Nietzsche and outlawed the old religion, replacing it with worshipping the emperor, then after they lost the war, the emperor stopped being worshipped, but the Nietzsche stuff remained.
>>237740182No, but does that even matter? It looks like shit
>>237740384then how could you possibly asses if it was impactful? Retard
>>237715663What are you talking about? DBZ was very consistent in quality, YOU just preferred Namek.
>>237727047This, it's not even worth being mad about at this point because this isn't One Punch Man anymore. This is just a battle shounen with ONE's characters.
>>237726483>anti-authoritarian and god is the ultimate authorityThat's really funny because isn't Japanese society based around kowtowing to authority figures?
Honestly, even though everything has been either skipped or pervertedly bastardized, I think Fubuki vs Psykos will still happen somehow. Murata wouldn't skip a fight with his waifu, and Psykos is a titty monster as well so it's right up his alley, he'll get to coom.I wanna see how much worse this can get. Let's go all the fucking way. We already turned Garou into more of a fucking gag character than Saitama himself, why not just do the most stupid shit possible and see where it goes?I wanna see the worst version of this story possible.
>>237702843Sitting in that house is setup for the table flip, that tiny little table is going to get flipped when they argue mark my words
>>237742495Saitama will grab the table and flip the earth 360degrees under it.
>>237701256I don't know why but I have a feeling that the S-class humiliation from Garou we didn't get to see will happen to the Blastvengers. Garou is probably going to destroy them
>>237741149Im mad that ONE isnt releasing quality material and who knows what he's up to.
I remember when the god reveal came out half a year ago and everyone said things were finally turning around.Instead it all went so bad that the Phoenixman fight looked like a masterpiece
>>237742840No we can go biggerSaitama flips the entire multiverse and they end up in the webcomic universe, seeing their webcomic selves fighting.And then Blast comes and says some retarded technobabbleThen his visors come down and he analyzes the coordinates of their universeThen the moon is in the backgroundAnd then some more stupid shit happens I dunno

>>237746242t. never seen a real woman
>>237701284ONE isn't doing the webcomic anymore, this is what we're stuck with.
I can't believe the manga turned to shit so quickly. It got popular and just completely shit the bed, which seems borderline impossible because it's supposed to be a literal redraw of an existing webcomic but apparently people are retarded and have to meddle.For people blaming ONE/Murata, this is 100% editor interference. Too late to fix it now, it's doomed.
>>237747454Well you are right in a way, the filler was 100% requested by the anime team since they wanted to milk the series into at least 3 seasons. Unfortunately ONE/Murata decided an unironic tournament arc would be the correct direction to go.A reboot of S2 following the webcomic MA would honestly be the best way to go, since it actually follows the structure of an anime season and people have long given up predicting how the hell Murata's mess is going to get adapted into episodes/seasons
at least some of the fan animations were cool
>>237747454>For people blaming ONE/Murata, this is 100% editor interferenceAre you talking about the non-existent editor?
>>237719051because he is black?
>>237725045this artist is the gateway for NTR. I want my life back before going full Netorare.
>>237726444Japs think any supernatural powerful being as "GOD".
>>237726444Because if god actually existed he'd basically be an eldrich horror.
I've got a question to manga only readers:Do you like what's going on in the manga? You probably understand the changes made if you're on here, but even still, without experiencing the Webcomic, do you still view this manga in a good light?I just wanna know if reading the webcomic is effecting how I look at the manga at this point. I probably won't ever like the changes but I'd like to tell myself I'd be more accepting of the manga if I never read the Webcomic in the first place.
>>237751267I like it but no way of telling you would be the same.
>>237748819Yeah. If anything, a lack of an editor IS what let this happen.
>>237751267The number of people who dislike the manga but kept reading is probably pretty small. All we know is that sales have been gradually falling off but I can't say if that's particularly atypical for a long running series like this.It is very obvious that the vast majority of manga onlies still like the series though and the effect only becomes more pronounced the more casual the readership (i.e. in /r/OPM chapters regularly sit at 95% approval or below whereas in /r/manga they never drop bellow 99%).It's very likely that if you'd only read the manga you'd be more positive. That doesn't mean that you'd be positive though and many of the popular comparison criticisms still apply to the manga even without the webcomic and are repeated by manga onlies.
>>237751267Manga-only or not, there would still be the redraws to contend with. Having read the webcomic before definitely factors into how a reader will view the work (to some extent it will feel like a betrayal when the manga starts splitting from the webcomic while refusing to let go of its iconic lines), but at the same time, the manga has legitimate issues on its own. The original Amai Mask vs The Mercenaries, Phoenix Man and Orochi vs Saitama chapters will probably never be adapted into the anime if that ever comes to be.
>>237751901speaking of the anime, it has all the making of being an awful season if it ever comes out.The monster association raid s in itself too long to fit in a single season, so it would awkwardly end in the middle of it.It would also just be an endless series of fight most of which don't envolve Saitama, not ones that especially move the plot further either, just heroes vs monster over and over again.This might have worked somewhat if the animation could match Murata's drawing, but from what season 2 gave us, I doubt anything of the sort will happen.
>>237752184Season 2 itself ended awkwardly, if I remember. The whole thing is a blur now, but there should have been a scene of Garou entering the Monster Association base at the end. That's where the season should have cut off, and we can get Garou's fight with Rover and Orochi as the opening meals for the first quarter of Season 3.>This might have worked somewhat if the animation could match Murata's drawing, but from what season 2 gave us, I doubt anything of the sort will happen.The problem will be greatly mitigated if they used ONE's style so they don't need to focus on the details and can hone the actual animation instead. People joke about the studio straight up adapting the redraws as well so the anime-onlies won't get to miss out on Amai Mask or Phoenix Man's original takes. Not sure if that'd be a career suicide, but done well it'd be the Endless Eight of this decade.
>>237715663the Cell Games > Namek
>>237732564Tatsumaki is a girl
>>237751267Not all changes are bad, but the ones that mattered the most are. Core characters were absolutely butchered. Relationships between characters has changed. Future set ups like Tatsumaki being ignorant of Saitama has been ruined, because Saitama has done so much. Dark Shine's depression was overcome swiftly but we left ambiguous in the original. Tank Top Master resurfaced just fine, while in the original he was still recovering and doubting his approach. There's a lot more I'm missing. I don't like it, yet don't hate it enough to drop One Punch Man. One Punch Man has become bland and boring.
>>237729352>>237735521For once I actually want Murata to redraw something
>>237715663I'm liking Murata's OPM a lot even though I appreciated the webcomic story as well. Feel free to tell me I have shit taste>>237726428>unironically thinking thisLmao Omega is so shit, Sandro can't even stay consistent or logical about past events or current plotlines. You're out of your mind if you think Murata is that gone, you can criticize his "half turn your brain off and draw something cool" approach, but current OPM objectively doesn't reach that level of plot hole or logic dissonance no matter how hard you dislike it.
>>237756802>Kengan OmegaThe series is genuinely fun to talk about because of the way it is bad, and it shows in the threads. Attempting to defend Sandro's writing decisions is abnormally difficult because any defense brought up for any specific part of the manga drags down another part of the story. Edward vs the Kures is perhaps the best example of this, not to mention Gilbert. It almost feels intentional with how the writing in that series strings together perfectly to be genuinely entertaining as a tragicomedy while being perfectly defended from any attempts to explain away its flaws.Contrast this with One Punch Man. The threads have a different aura from Kengan's precisely because the best answer to the manga's lack of quality is staring the readers in the face - remain a faithful adaptation. Now the series is catering to an entirely different audience while leaving the original fans feeling betrayed. One Punch Man's manga's emotional highs in the current arc don't hit the same way as the webcomic's version of events. People would have reacted the same if Mumen's confrontation with Deep Sea King is littered with foreshadowing of the Boros Arc. The recent reveal of Blast's team having a Boros lookalike is cynical and uninspired. It dug up the body of a previous character whose arc was finished to further send the message that Garou is now nothing more than a stepping stone to an even greater threat, when before he was the arc's central antagonist.The current situation with Garou's arc is steeped in irony in that while he wanted to unite the world with absolute evil, the way the manga handles his arc has lead to a great fissure within the fanbase.
Garou was a menace in the webcomic, and they downgraded him to a joke in the manga...
Garou was womanbeater in the webcomic
Garou was way hotter in the webcomic
>>237757139>The series is genuinely fun to talk about because of the way it is badThats because Sandro went so deep into madness he looped back to write it now as if its a parody of fighting mangas, which as much as i also hate to admit it for entertainment alone is kinda working.
>>237715663it is very similar to GOT
>>237757220Come on now, this is objectively false. Murata draws men hot enough that even an ULTRASTRAIGHT man like me finds them attractive
>>237757240Kengan's dump threads are hilarious because basically half of the anons posting are functionally mindbroken while giving out some genuinely good insight and discussions into the manga's current state.OPM threads, on the other hand, conjure an image of two rocks rubbing against each other, like those rocks in the desert that skid along the sand, only this time two rocks are directly in the other's path. And as the manga releases a chapter, the two rocks gain even more momentum before losing it again. At the same pace. So nothing really changes other than the occasional ebb and flow of shifting sand as one rock randomly loses some of its speed before regaining it.It's why I find OPM threads hard to get into until I actually post in them - from then the whole thing becomes sorta freeflowing.
>>237724827Do-S is ugly but Fubuki is very fappable
>No Garou wrecking the S-Class and goading them to stop him killing the kid>No tableflip>No Absolute Evil speechI am so disappointed.
>>237734081how can he be jealous if he can't even grasp what made it good
so the webcomic is the original story and the manga is different from it, right?
>>237757736The webcomic came first and the manga is an adaptation, yeah.The anime adapted the manga's style which bit Season 2 hard. It wouldn't surprise me to hear the whole thing placed a dent in Murata and ONE's motivation to work on the manga, but who knows.
>>237757736Yeah, webcomic is the original story.The manga used to be a faithful adaptation, then it started adding some extra stuff that wasn't in the original story, but still worked fairly well. Now it's not an adaptation anymore, it's a straight up fanfiction.
God, 1st season was so good..
>>237757790>>237757824well that sucksthink the manga style is great but i dont want to read fanfiction....
>>237757837The first season is a perfect place to stop. OPM's formula of multiple self-contained arcs was executed well and stand on their own nicely while also providing subtle hints as to what the next arc might be about without overblowing it. The Deep Sea King Arc, Amai Mask arc and the Ninja arc were good for this reason, with the latter two being a good lead into the conflict between the Hero Association and the Neo Heroes.
>>237746059Not Do-S, idiot.
>>237711403He can't see something that doesn't exist.
i just read the webcomic from the start to where it's currently up atthe manga honestly isn't even close to the original qualitythe changes murata has made are like 75% shit, some of them are ok additions thoughalso when the fuck is the next chapter it's been nearly a year
>>237757298cause he draws them with female faces
>>237758805ONE doesn't have a set schedule, which is why so many people celebrated when he suddenly released an entire batch of chapters without warning. The threads were joyous then, even as the redraws came out.
>>237758805ONE'll probably drop more chapters after he's done with Mob S3 so probably around then.
>>237717836>there's zero proof to the cont-
>>237759004Im not trusting google translate on that, even if i would believe it.
my brain and hype has fully checked out with the reveal of boros
>>237758805Some changes like the Elder centipede fight, the A class fight against Garou etc were great.But almost every change after the base flip was been shit
>>237757824ONE literally storyboards entire chapters for the manga. It’s his nareative expanded with everything he was too lazy or even forgetful to add in the webcomic. All the brainstorming already done has helped with making the characters’ development look gradual and organic in the manga.
>>237760181>has helped with making the characters’ development look gradual and organic in the manga.If you're braindead maybe>ONE literally storyboards entire chapters for the mangaWe only know that he used to. As far as I remember the only storyboard we actually saw was the Garou vs A class heroes fight.And that fight was actually an improvement over the webcomic. I don't think anyone complained about the manga around that time, it was actually pretty fucking hype.But now even the most retarded child can see that the story has been getting worse and worse, with the last couple chapters being so fucking bad it's laughable.
>>237760592>Murata shows off storyboards while streaming>Murata stops streaming>Story starts going to shitMakes you think
Everyone said Murata was stalling because he afraid of ruining Garou v Saitama and they were right
>>237760181If they had brainstormed properly they wouldn't need to retcon their own shit multiple times over. He's obviously decided to go in a different direction, but I don't see anything natural or organic about forcing this Blast/multidimensional crap within Garou's arc when it clearly wasn't necessary for either Garou or the MA's resolution.ONE/Murata are just throwing whatever seems cool at the moment and if it fucks the continuity or the nature of what made OPM popular in the first place they can either give fans of the original the middle finger or just go back and retcon it later
>>237703447Fubuki and Saitama are the ship of OPM. Deal with it already.
>>237760741Only in Murata's fanfiction.
>>237760770>onecucks still alivelelStory by Murata. Period.
How can anyone think One is in control of this when the humor, artstyle, and writing are all completely different from when he was?
>>237724358>>237724280O remember years ago Murata when asked why he was including metal bat he said >" if metal bat was there the outcome would be entirely different"I thought that meant metal bat was going to be the one to first fight Garu not that the manga turns to absolute complete shit
>>237760886murata just desperately wants metal batxgarou
One (1) Punch Man
>>237733784Super was shit from day 1 though
>>237759004>>237759138DeepL translation> You seem to misunderstand that they are my instructions or suggestions, but the series of revisions are all Murata-sensei's ideas and names. I am talking about Mr. Murata's greatness.https://twitter.com/one_rakugaki/status/1270418750269845505?s=21&t=CbU3mmSTRsdvA-IqfjiY3g
>>237760741Nice reddit filename.
>>237760592>As far as I remember the only storyboard we actually saw was the Garou vs A class heroes fight.Not even close, we saw tons of storyboards, from the Super Fight arc up to Garou vs Orochi at least, and a bunch of bonus chapters too.
>>237761400How do you know it's from reddit?
>>237761469Yeah. Child emperor vs Phoenix Man was the final storyboard we saw.
Has anyone noticed how the panelling is absolute fucking nonsense now Characters keep changing directions with no rhyme or reason in the middle of the action, it's a clusterfuck to read.In pic related, if you just had a few more panels between the spread and the previous page to establish the punch, it'd look so much better. And even if you're not gonna do that, at least flip the fucking spread so it's consistent.
>>237761469That's fair. I wasn't really following the OPM threads around that time.>>237761511Was it the pre-redraw one?
>>237761561I'm gonna be honest, I kinda just skim through the chapters since 1.5 years or so.The last battle that I found interesting was the pre-redraw Orochi one.
>>237761636> Was it the pre-redraw one?We only saw storyboards of the start, when CE tries to tank the first attack then calls brave giant. This part didn’t get retcon redraws by Murata, just visual ones for BG’s design. So who knows how was the full fight in his storyboards.
>>237760994>You now remember the garou and metal bat synchronicity Why was that even introduced when it was forgotten a few chapters later?
>>237736755>>one of the best if not the best artist in the game right nowRead more manga. Murata's art becomes nothing special once you got over the initial spectacle
>>237728853How was it before? Once every month?
>>237757199Actually no, he never touched neither Tatsumaki nor Fubuki.
>>237761879Because someone (Murata) thought it was cool.
>>237762025??? Didnt he punched Tatsu directly in the face ?
>>237761561the action hasnt been exciting to follow in this manga for months at this point, it's all just big flashy effects and FEATS but with zero interesting choreo or impactful hits
>>237761510It's not that hard to tell where a picture comes from, dumb dumb.
>>237762214I'd agree with you if the filename was something like tumblr_ or something, but how the fuck do you tell when it's just random bullshit letters like that unless you actively use said website?
>>237762245So a chapter a month would have been better for the series?
>>237762281The art would still be great instead of rushed out trash. Quick releases are only good if you're talented, can write a good story and have autism like Akira Toriyama.
>>237762306The art isn't even bad, or did I misunderstood you? Anyway, how would a delayed release make the writing any better if Murata insisted on changing up certain things from the WC?
>>237762231As I said, it's not that hard to tell when you see it enough times, like phoneposting.
>>237762255pretty much, more time to plan and discard retarded stuff, consistent or better art, and most likely no bullshit redraws since one and murata have more time to plan ahead, so it wouldn't even be that far behind, actually
>>237762306>AkiraBad example because his manga never had good story, people read it for the braindead fights. He would finish the storyboard in like a couple of hours
>>237762331He'd have one month to make drafts, the scenario and plan out the story instead of doing it on the fly.>the art isn't even badYes, but it's still a MASSIVE downgrade compared to before.>>237762344The story was still good, there's maybe a few glaring retcons here and there, but aside from that it was still good.>but people only-Irrelevant.
>>237735135Garou is a shitter who overstayed his welcome
>>237762365>He'd have one month to make drafts, the scenario and plan out the story instead of doing it on the fly.fair point, damn no i would love to see how this arc would play out with a monthly schedule. but we will nver know
>>237732258She literally summons tentacle demons from beyond time and space to murderfuck superheros in other timelines and then personally burns the flesh off the bones of dozens of wizards while trying to kill a pan-dimensional illegal alien from the lesbian universe. She does this because she's pinning over her imaginary kids. She never mentions her brother, or her parents, or even the supposed father of her 'kids' who is still alive and rocking about. She doesn't care for any of her supposed loved ones and goes out of her way to be as destructive and spiteful as possible while claiming to be "reasonable". She's perfect villain material and deserved a better comeuppance than an heroing herself.
>>237761879Murata only thinks in the short term
>>237751267>Do you like what's going on in the manga?No>but even still, without experiencing the Webcomic, do you still view this manga in a good light?Not as much, but I don't give a shit about the webcomic either. One terrible arc ending isn't going to make me drop the Manga anyways>I just wanna know if reading the webcomic is effecting how I look at the manga at this point.It probably is, if you were expecting something (presumably) better, and handed a shitty knockoff instead, you would likely be upset.
>>237762001Roughly a chapter every 3 or so weeks
>>237762903It's important to note that when people bring up the disparity between the manga and the webcomic's art, it is quite something, especially in the earlier chapters. But there is clear improvement over the years, and OPM is drawn in digital while Mob Psycho is done on traditional (ONE's preferred medium).If you wish to check it out from the start:https://cubari.moe/read/gist/Z2lzdC9mdW5reWhpcHBvLzcxMjRhZjUyMWExMDU5NDVhNGRmNmEzMzFjOWZjZTU5L3Jhdy9vcG0td2MuanNvbg/Do note multiple chapters will be heavy on the text.
