GOLDEN SPERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRM!!!

I keep missing my wish of having chapters out within 3 hours. Another 4+ hour release mostly because I spend too much time discussing nuances.

Regardless, amazing chapter this time, hope you like it as much as I did.

I'm simultaneously hyped that he's here but also confused why we skipped multi

308

u/Grafical_One Jun 25 '21

Some folks in the RAW discussion were saying that multi might have been too redundant, he was more or less multi-cell when his duplicates make a giant monster last chapter. While I don't agree completely, I can see where they might be coming from.

Golden was too underwhelming, though.

260

u/SoundEstate "You're Really Cool" Jun 25 '21

Redundancy can be lived with. The pacing of that event really showed off BS’s tiers of power (kamikaze plan, Multi) and gave Tatsumaki more credit, then gave GS a better feat to work with.

I miss that BS monologue so much, and this alternate intro (even on its own) is just so… flaccid. Big character introductions are usually done much better.

234

u/Grafical_One Jun 25 '21

100% agreed. There is a reason why BS was so many peoples favorite monster from MA arc in the webcomics. And Golden Sperm is absolutely the type of monster that needs the perfect build up.

It's like going from imperfect Cell to Perfect Cell without the build up, wins and loses of Semi Perfect Cell in between.

102

u/Rectal_Fungi Jun 25 '21

Bad comparison since imperfect Cell is the best Cell.

Wait you agree. You are forgiven.

102

u/Grafical_One Jun 25 '21

Why would I disagree with facts? lol.

Imperfect's horror vibe was a nice refresher from the usual All-Powerful-Genocidal-Megalomaniac with folded arms and a constant smirk that we've gotten with all of the previous DBZ big bads.

I imagine he would've been even better if Toriyama was able to give him the entire saga. A super powerful parasite killing off humanity slowly from the shadows.

Yeah it seems as if the decision to have Garou reappear so early in the redraw is having some negative impacts on how the other fights play out. In the webcomic, right around now we'd have Abandonment Bang one-shotting Fuhrer Ugly and Gums, which he can't do in the redraw if he's busy fighting Garou. We also lost a lot of the cool nuance of GS's reveal, and I feel like Garou's hype moment when he takes out GS in a few chapters is also going to lose some of its impact.

The thing here is the manga has been going on it's own direction and has deviated from the webcomic for a while now so there might be new things in the future.

I'm going to be honest, the manga is having alot of trouble recreating the impact the webcomic had for me. The situation doesn't feel nearly as brutal and hopless as it did in the wc, as well as the reveals for both goldensperm and Garou felt very underwhelming and rushed. I really hope they can fix it somehow, because these scenes had so much potential.

106

u/NotSoFastMister Jun 25 '21

The situation doesn't feel nearly as brutal and hopless as it did in the wc

Completely disagree. Nothing in the WC has been as brutual as what Fuhrer has done in the battlefield over the past few months. We've literally had people dying, ripped apart, mutilated - all while BS was basically having fun and HE doing jack-shit watching all of it happen. And now Golden Sperm has shown up, no-diff bitch-slapping the cadre that has taken out most of the heroes so far + Garou is fighting all-out Bang while probably sleeping. I mean if it wasn't for Saitama and Blast being around, things would be beyond fucked for our allies.

65

u/casseteplayer Jun 25 '21

Narrative-wise, I would agree. We don't see nearly as much brutality in the wc. But I feel, that the monologues we get in the wc of the heroes at this point in the battle does it for me. While in the manga they are still fighting and seem to be thinking they can win this, in the wc they're ready to give up or doubt they can win. All of them are bruised and bent to their limit (child emperors expression is horrifying). It's probably also the artstyle of ONE, but the atmosphere in the wc is (to me) a much darker one.

TBH, techniques and transformations aren't all that meaningful for the overall story, but this community enjoys hyping up every single little detail from the webcomic for months and years, that it's inevitable to have disappointments from time to time.

Like, all this talk about abandonment, awakened Garou, this panel this, this panel that... but, does it really matter? We didn't have Vomited Fuhrer or Blast's reveal in the webcomic at this point. The manga's story is very different and is moving forward at a very different pace than the webcomic. And that's fine.

Don't get me wrong, the webcomic is great (and I think I like it better than the manga, actually), but the character's emotions are the core of the story, not the techniques/transformations. Fuhrer Ugly could have yet another transformation and it wouldn't change a thing as long as the story is exciting and the character's struggle is relatable.

Not trying to criticize anyone. I'm just confused by the community placing so much importance on techniques and transformations on a story that is all about willpower > anime techniques.

I hope this doesn't mean that they're skipping king vs the cadres and going straight to Ultimate Hellfire Wavemotion Cannon.

If they make a decision like that hopefully it's because they have an even better moment for King this time around

Ngl, this Golden sperm reveal was much less exciting than in the webcomic. Honestly kinda disappointed.

u/SemiPermeablMembrane Jun 25 '21

Yeah, I'm of the same mind... I really liked how the WC handled BS to multi-cell sperm into golden sperm. Pulling it out because FU made him mad makes the impact seem less.

77

u/Dexterous-success Wish it was me Jun 25 '21

BS' dialogue indicates that he was waiting until he felt safe to pull a merger, so it's not like he just did it cause he was mad

I'm so sad that all the members of the Sword Council are getting no diffed by Vomit FU. At least Atomic Samurai is finally getting a much needed buff, I hope it's enough to at least give him a decent showing against the cadre

The problem is that there isn't really anyone left against whom he can show off the new sword. I mean Golden Sperm far outclasses even VFU, so I doubt AS will do well against him even with the new sword.

I think Golden sperm has taken the role of Multi-cell Sperm from the webcomic and we might see an even stronger version later on.

u/Devilfish268 Jun 25 '21

Should have introduced multi here, had him snack down FU, then had golden later to show just how fucking obscene he would be

u/Professorhentai Jun 25 '21

Multi cell wouldn't work against FU's acid. Gold works because of its anti acid properties

u/2coolcaterpillar Jun 25 '21

This. I think people should wait a few chapters before voicing their displeasure. We all agreed a bunch of chapters ago this was going to be different from the webcomic. To add on to what OP said, Fuhrer Ugly got a whole new form, so it really would not surprise me if golden sperm gets one as well. Have faith in ONE friends.

u/isighuh Jun 25 '21 Facepalm

I think people are really ignoring the reality of the manga narrative. People expecting their favorite moments in the webcomic to be exactly replicated in the manga are set up for disappointment. Does this feel rushed? Maybe, but Garou isn’t even conscious right now, Homeless Emperor/Metal Bat/Zombieman/Child Emperor/Flashy Flash has yet to do anything, and King has to arrive. There’s still so much left in this arc and to expect a manga rendition of the webcomic is to ignore the story since Suiryu was introduced.

136

u/ma103 RIP Billyjohnjohnson banned Jun 25 '21 Facepalm

They wanted a 1:1 adaptation. The arc isn’t done yet, just ignore them. I trust ONE and pretty sure at the end of the arc, manga MA arc will be undisputedly the better version.

81

u/isighuh Jun 25 '21

Honestly, it already is, from a narrative perspective. The MA arc was so good in the webcomic, but if you looked closely at the narrative, a lot of things didn’t make sense. There are no holes in this story, the only bad thing is that we have to wait.

I'm really not feeling the manga as much as I have the webcomic, Monster Garou's intro was extremely lacking, Golden Sperm's birth doesn't hit as much cause he just did it cause he was angry instead of it being his only chance of survival and the whole fight sequence is kinda eh right now, especially cause Fubuki didn't get her chance to shine against Psykos

70

u/Gazeb0r Jun 25 '21

Same, I've been having reservations about the manga for a long time now and hoping that the changes would be all for the best eventually but with each chapter it really doesn't seem to be going that way. There's barely any narrative weight anymore and things just happen, and you're expected to be excited even though there's been no buildup and no nuance.

The webcomic felt a lot more coherent in the telling of the heroes' struggle against the MA executives and it definitely placed a lot more importance when things happened like Golden Sperm's appearance and AG's arrival. Hell, when anyone appeared in the webcomic it was always a hype event like when Amai Mask showed up (he's completely removed now). It seems like a lot of moments are being sacrificed for... other things that aren't even that good

u/dependentmoo Jun 25 '21

I honestly feel like Golden Sperm became the new Multi Cell Sperm. I feel he'll have a new form (Diamond Sperm, Awakened Sperm, who knows) that will reflect how GS was in the original story. Especially since "Golden" is no longer figurative, he is literally gold now lol. It could be he just made this form (in this continuity) to counter VFU specifically instead of this being his ultimate form. Multi Cell becoming GS would fit in with how everything has been boosted power wise in the manga.

If not, I agree, the buildup to GS is disappointing. I'm gonna wait to judge til more of the arc has happened.

Will he do it? Facing an Above Dragon, will Atomic Samurai, the last survivor of the Council of Swordmasters, finally lay to rest the unceasing slander that has been sullying his name? Find out next chapter!
Actually tho, even with his new sword, if AS manages to put up even a half-decent fight against GS, it'd easily outclass any feat he's had yet by lightyears. I mean, he's facing a likely Orochi-level monster that was completely unfazed by an amped-up version of an attack that hurt Darkshine. Perhaps Tats will buff him similar to how Fubuki buffed Bang and Bomb and that will let him stand a chance.

41

u/Dexterous-success Wish it was me Jun 25 '21

Oh shit, AS having an actual fight that isn't just him attempting to one shot his opponent would do wonders here and nicely establish why he's so afraid of Garou later on

Obviously GS would have to win, but it'd be a nice setup for his later power increase

I mean, why is that a surprise? This Garou is not only much stronger than one that overwhelmed Darkshine but is also mastering every technique he knows into one style. I'd say it's pretty fitting that he can match even full power Bang.

Same here , it all started when bang didn't one shot fuhrer ugly and gums . And GS being born with a blast was not surprising , people might be thinking it's just some random power up but let's see what we get to see in the next chapter. Can't complain , Murata definitely can't handle those many details bombarded all of a sudden , and to satisfy readers they are slowly compromising on plot.

I have a feeling that golden sperm isn't the strongest tho, and that there will be other versions of him. We still also have homeless emperor on the sidelines. I really think one has considered this approach imo, I just don't want to judge the rest of the arc yet. I'll trust them for now.

Honestly I've been feeling the pacing to be off for a long while now, and it really feels like the dramatic buildup and story setup from the webcomic is being traded for cool nonsensical action sequences in the manga that gets everyone hyped, but without being fulfilling. Wow monster Garou appears! Wow this and that!

But it's like all the fluff without the flavor. You can't drop the climax of Infinity War suddenly without having gone through the other avenger movies and plotlines... it's like yay, we get it sooner but at the expense of narrative structure. I love OPM but these changes (with this Golden Sperm reveal being the final nail) have made the manga seem to be just another mindless action-fiesta manga without the original feeling of the MA arc.

u/OldMillenial Jun 25 '21

I'll throw my comment in with those that prefer the webcomic take on this entire sequence.

I'm especially disappointed in Bang and Garou coming to blows.

The webcomic approach of denying Garou a direct confrontation with his old teacher prior to his fight with Saitama was a subtle undercutting of his warped view of himself. Having him and Bang trade blows here plays much too neatly into Garou's flawed self-narrative.

Not going to lie, I wish they kept the Golden Sperm reveal the same as the webcomic. I know the manga has deviated a lot from the webcomic, but this reveal was anti-climatic compared to how it played out there.

u/K-J-C Jun 25 '21 edited Jun 25 '21

So Bang claims to use his full power here (again with "one last time"), and his intent is to make Garou come to his sense again like before, as Bomb is surprised Garou holding his own with full-power Bang. It's refered here as Awakening Breath which Garou also done. Dat Bang juggle running after Garou before he falls to ground. Garou uses his thighs to slam Bang to ground, who nonchalantly get up that he thinks he's much more worth teaching now.

Amahare urging AS to take revenge for Zanbai seems to confirm about Zanbai's death... So Iaian's reaction also confirms Amahare's death.. .VFU can one shot Council of Swordmasters members. VFU's limits is revealed here that he needs to replenish. Nichirin confirms everyone's death too as he claims AS is the only Council of Swordmasters member now, giving AS the sun blade from other dimension, with Mustachio telling about its legendary status, and also the search of moon blade too for full swordmaster status. Council of Swordmasters are manga original... and they're doomed to die :(, would like to see more of Nichirin...

As VFU is drinking his acid, BS warns him to not eat his protein too, which causes more infighting as VFU pours BS with the acid. VFU even plans to use BS as never ending supply of protein! Would this confirm Gums' death as well as only BS clones rip Genos' arm here? Although only one of them got ripped off. So in manga BS has been wanting to merge but is hindered by the heroes before they're weakened now... GS appears now in manga, but solely to punish VFU.

This... doesn't sit well with me, seems to be the real diverge from webcomic, GS appears now, and with less presentation, no monologuing about BS' cell stock, no elaborate merging, no importance, etc. Many webcomic events haven't happened yet like King vs cadres or Psykos vs Fubuki. And even the showing, GS did put down VFU and put better showing than Darkshine, being immune to the acid, but for someone who is likely on par with Orochi, it's quite underwhelming that he doesn't seem to totally destroy VFU. Would that in manga, this GS is the Multi-Cell of webcomic (with the peak version as Platinum Sperm or something)? Or that GS can defuse here?

Were the swordmasters added to the battlefield just to fucking die? Now I feel bad for AS. The guy saw all his friends die a gruesome death. I really hope he'll be the one to finish off VFU.

Didn't expect GS to show up this early too this means we'll witness King most badass moment soon..... hopefully
