    Wait...so Psykos isn't the leader of the Monster Association, now? What, is she the figurehead, and this Orochi guy is the shadow leader?

    Whoa, way to throw a curveball, ONE. I'm not sure how the story can still get in line with the web comic with this change. At least not anytime soon.

    I always assumed,
    They made this arc in order to give a potential season 2 anime a satisfying ending point
    Like how the City A attack was the ending point of season 1
    And in the Monsta King, we have just met season 2's Boros

    Maybe.

    Spoiler:
    After he gets womped,
    Pyskos resumes her role as defacto leadero
    And things proceed to the MA arc smoothly again
    There'll be changes here and there
    But yeah, it'll be mostly smooth

    Maybe


    I'm looking forward to whatever we can get from Saitama and Suiryu's fight
    Before the inevitable interruption from this thing that womped Genos

    Gave u a like for ur awesome edit sir. Good Job!

    I dont think Saitama vs Suiryu will happen, Gouketsu will interrupt the tournament, gets pounded, we find out he was Orochis son so Orochi heads to the stadium in an attempt to avenge him and we get Orochi vs Saitama for Season 2 finale :catthinks.

    Its either the orochi guy is her body in this version or hes the guy who
    Spoiler:
    gave homeless emperor his powers (god)
    or psykos is just using him as a front and he gets fodderized by garou and we continue on the web comics path.

    Orochi can't be Psykos, because her "body" is right there. Why would she be talking to herself?

    Spoiler:
    I dont think Orochi is "God". The designs are too dissimilar for me.


    It might be that Psykos is using Orochi. Or maybe he really is the leader, but when he's inevitably defeated, Psykos succeeds him. Simple as that.

    Is that Psykos? Orochi called the blob thing "gyoro gyoro" it might just be managstreams usual garbage or did psykos have an alias in the webcomic? IDK its been ages so im probably wrong.

    Now if u think about it, if Orochi is gonna be the Final Boss of Season 2, Saitama isnt gonna get any credit, Iit should set up another gag in Charanko getting all the credit.

    I like how this stage of the manga is basically raising the stakes, explaining why certain heroes are MIA, establishing rivals for characters with irrelevant or so-so contributions to the MA arc (Genos and Fuboobies), setting up more characters as strong as the Dragon Threat Monsters (Orochi is definitely one of the stronger characters in the MA, judging the scene how Psikos is talking as if he was someone with authority) and even hinting at the current arc of the webcomic with Snek questioning himself if the heroes are necessary or not with Suryu basically nonchalantly vocalizing that insecurity. Considering how Suryu is also being set up as capable as a high tier S hero, I'm pretty sure he'll be introduced in the webcomic as a member of the hunter group.

    It was logical there was some other non-hero guys that were S class level material(Bomb was the first one we saw).

    The tourney/invasion still takes place between webcomic chapters 52 and 53
    After this arc finishes, we'll return to webcomic proper, probably
    Although there will be changes here and there

    ---

    You know, now that there's a new season of the anime confirmed
    And that it will very likely end during this arc
    It needs to end in an extremely satisfying way
    Like how the Boros finale called back to Saitama's dream in the first episode
    Given that the first episode of the 2nd season will most likely deal with King
    I think the final battle here in this arc - the final battle of the 2nd season - will involve King as well

    For the sake of impact,
    You shouldn't cover the ground of a future landmark moment like
    Spoiler: ONE spoiler
    King's Gambit
    ,
    But I'm sure ONE can get around that,
    And come up something that works

    *ONE writes all original content for the manga*

    *Introduces new characters, enemies, new plotlines and answers a few unexplained questions from the webcomic*

    *HEY GUYS, IS THIS FILLER OR SOMETHING?*

    Yes, filler. That's what this is.

    I'm guessing Psykos is the shadow leader while Orochi thinks he's the leader or ONE actually introduced another main villain in this arc.

    Suiryuu is an interesting character

    Spoiler:
    He might be part of the Hunters with the way he was going on about the HA

    psykos never felt like the authoritative figure in the monster association in the webcomic anyway. the dragon level monsters all seemed equal sans golden sperm. i wonder how murata will fit orochi in garou's undrerground rampage.

    -Is there any specific time for the next chapters to be released? like is it monthly or weekly.
    -Where can I read that webcomic that seems to be different from the manga, and what is cannon?

    I don't think there is a set releases schedule for the manga, Murata puts new chapters up or parts of a chapter when he feels like it, same with ONE with the webcomic. The webcomic and the manga are both canon, the manga is basically ONE revising his own work with Murata doing the artwork.

    You can read the webcomic here on , you just have to make an account.

    Chapter postponed for next week

    お待たせしております。となジャンワンパンマンの更新は11日になります。今週中には間に合いませんでした!申し訳ございません!

    I guess the next chapter might feature the Elder Centipede or Orochi, given that Murata takes too much time drawing them...
