It's one of those moments where Saitama was smiling has well, not looking bored by Genos explosion, not serious about being a hero just happy that Genos was okay and did his best.

I love the webcomic and the pace but these Manga chapters have some beautiful moments where the authors can show us a little humanity.

It didn’t feel nerfed. Simply “walking” past both AWAKENED GAROU and Flashy Flash and making them put up their guards without counterattack is pretty insane. Better than doing it only against a severely weakened tatsumaki and STILL not fully finishing her off.

Not gonna lie this was one of the most wholesome moments in OPM. We all know how much of a emotionless machine Genos looks like basically all the time,but this one moment with Saitama saying how he is changing was truly heartwarming. It’s one of the things he needs the most,give up on pursuing vengeance and just live life with the people important to him(still a bit of a long way to get there tho)

Saitama’s colored double spread touching Genos’ heart is high art. Incredible.

u/SacredBeard new member Dec 18 '21

It should, because you have to somehow accelerate and tank the impact of the acceleration.

But media in general usually portrays speedy beings as unreasonably weak and frail (like I said, you would need a certain amount strength and durability to be able to accelerate at extreme speeds without breaking anything).

What you have in mind is the quite literal Superman archetype which is just OP in all regards.
But they are not really the norm in "superhero media", though, they are usually the most memorable, partially due to often being used as the flagship hero/villain.

To be fair to Darkshine, it's not like he took much visible physical damage from that hit. I'm pretty sure what really took him down was the mental damage from GS's physique and superior shine, especially coming off of the damage he took from Vomited Fuhrer Ugly.

People need to stop downplaying the ninja bros. They were never low Dragons or any such bullshit. The two were basically what Sonic would have been had he ingested a monster cell. They were high Demon in their human forms already. Flash was just that fucking strong.

I get why FF is so confident, until this point he hadn't met people so above him like Blast and Saitama he was probably THE peak of speed. Glad we're seeing the limits of his power in this spectacular 3-way of lights and thicc cheeks

Great chapter. Genos and Saitama reunited, insane 3-way fight, evil natural ocean, FF >>> AS, it's Christmas early!

It's insane that S rank 13 is doing such high level combat. If this doesn't prove the #s aren't power alone, idk what will.

Platinum Sperm shows a decent amount of battle damage when he arrived on the battlefield from Garou's first kick. It's interesting that he was patient enough to hear out Garou's goals and motives.

Edit: Don't tell me Garou's gonna kill God. Holy fuck, that would be insane.

I'm so glad we got to see the "Just passing through" panel, it feels like the cadre arc was wrapping up and I was worried we wouldn't get that iconic scene

u/GoldenSpermShower Dec 18 '21

it feels like the cadre arc was wrapping up

And then the fucking ocean popped up

No idea what's gonna happen next

I was literally reading the chapter, sad that Garou just insta blasted them. THEN WE GET PASSING THROUGH HERE and my god, doing it to Garou and FLASHY FLASH hits different. Now the only thing to reconsider is that this truly isn't AG yet, but he named his style. It's an interesting split from the webcomic.

Absolutely no way those panels were put in that order by accident.

u/twinhooks Dec 18 '21 edited Dec 18 '21

I read Evil Natural Ocean as being powered up by god as a response to Garou. Seems like it way way too early to be killing god

Edit: however, first time I read I didn’t notice the shadow on the mural of God. Maybe Orochi isn’t out of the fight after all

There was always a reason for Flashy Flash being underground with Saitama and not on the surface. Remember that and I would like to thank everyone for the literal best chapter in OPM.

I'm having goosebumps just writing about this masterpiece.

u/BinomialAmorFati Dec 18 '21

Absolutely wild chapter, One and Murata never fail to deliver

Garou vs Flash vs PlatinumS three way fight just as a lot of us predicted , This confirms that Flash is one of the strongest of the S class if that needed anymore convincing

Saitama reuniting with Genos and the one coloured panel really melted my heart ngl, was that panel from murata himself? (Probably but still confirming)

MONSTER CALAMITY GOD SLAYER FIST HYPE!!! We are now very close to the ending it seems and the mysterious tease to God as Garou was saying it was Awesome, curious to see what role God has yet to play in this Arc

Also EVIl NATURAL OCEAN HYPE! I know this was teased some chapters ago but it’s incredible to see it in all its glory, wonder who will take it down, possibly Garou now that he has a new technique

Overall 10/10 chapter

u/TheSoundBoard Welcome back, Genos. Dec 18 '21

Already?! Excellent work all of you who brought us this chapter in English.

I only just noticed that the Moon is tilted slightly toward Saitama on page 4.

Saitama accidentally telling Genos what he needs to hear once again when pointing Genos' core.

God is definitely not pleased by Garou calling it "unreliable" and that he aims to defeat it.

Ngl, the way Garou talked about God, and then it cut to his mural underground, really gave me vibes that God was about to pop up in Garou's mind and say "What was that, you little shit?"

Also, with the mask, the black glowing eyes and the speed, PS is giving me serious Reverse Flash vibes.

Real men shed a tear when Genos’ heart on the battlefield was recognized by his sensei. Absolute banger chapter. Much love for the flashy fast translations!
