    Tbh I felt like things dragged a bit when we got around the tourney and everything just zipped back and forth. Now that we're getting everything together it's pretty awesome. I mean we needed more time to build everything up, and now it's a bit more excitable.

    Meanwhile the webcomic never lost steam and kept on going from what I see. It just got us to the point and we got what we wanted sooner. Some stuff happened differently too. I'm not saying worldbuilding is bad, both are pretty awesome imo. But as of right now, all that investment on the slightly time consuming world building is finally paying off. I think it took us a year to get here after all.

    Yeah, you guys are right. Webcomic is so cool because it's BOOM BOOM POW all the time. The manga does some more world building and let's us wait a bit longer. Which isn't bad at all, once all the chapters are out :D

    I don't want to sound like a purist faggot or anything. Because at the end of the day, I'll take the manga over the webcomic any day of the week. But the webcomic does have a unique feel to it that the manga will never have. Especially when ONE plays around and works a few gifs here and there.

    The main difference is really the "less is more" approach. No one can really say that Garou's appearance destroying Royal Ripper is not as well drawn as the webcomic. But the original version had a lot more impact to it because we barely had any clue how Garou was since the last time we saw him, he was torn to shreds. Him breaking and entering RR's face was a total slap in the face and carried much more weight.

    Murata showing Garou waking up, talking to himself, slowly go down the MA's hideout, go down the tunnels, kill a few pointless monsters, have a couple of other pointless monsters saying "WHAT A BIG DEAL"...and then Garou breaks the door and kills Royal Ripper.

    It's just a long, drawn out sequence that doesn't really cut it and has a neutered payoff. I'm sure the arc will get much better as soon as Murata starts escalating the fights and shit but this was kind meh for me.

    ONE actually focuses on the sister dynamic on the webcomic's latest arc. This is them giving the first hints about it.

    I caught up with manga.
    I have tendency to let chapters pile so I can read them in bunch later.
    Though it seems like I picked wrong time to catch up. I should have waited for few more months.
    It seems new arc is just starting and I want it all already. :catcry
    I can read webcomic I guess but I got into OPM because of Murata and his Godly S Rank Art. Don't think I would be able to read webcomic because of that.
    I guess all I can do is hope for fast updates.

    I think it's a fair assessment to say that. If you pace something out for too long it might just seems like it's padding. I can't exactly agree since I don't share the same thoughts on it but there is a charm on keeping things to the point and moving quickly.

    That' dynamic is also why I began to favor Tats even more. Surprising since I hated her till that point. Speaking of webcomic, when's the last update? Years?



    @Amol

    Well there is a thing where the more you're used to seeing bad/shitty things the more used to you are to it? Like lowering art expectations? But either way I'd recc just waiting for now, what happens in the manga though is kinda different in some ways to the webcomic.

    Did One actually say he won't be updating anymore because Murata is drawing it now, or is he waiting for him to catch up? Did any of them say anything about it?

    Nothing at all as far as I know, although the guy tweets alot, he might have said something about it. People would have caught on, though.

    He finished Mob Psycho 100 recently, he should be pumping chapters.

    Please explain how rehashing Saitama meeting Garou and then adding in the original way he met Garou provides anything. Suriyu provided absolutely nothing as well rather than putting the fodder in his place.

    A ONE interview with some trivia and some tidbits here and there. The most interesting part is what he has planned for the future.

    Okkun asks whether there’ll come a day Saitama gets defeated. ONE doesn’t give a direct answer, but says he planned out how to end the series right at the beginning. What he’s currently doing is “filling in the middle”. He thinks he’ll be able to produce a pretty interesting conclusion.

    That's interesting. Although I wouldn't really like him getting defeated, that's actually the only thing that might make him happy/feel things again.

    It would be weird if the manga didn't climax with someone who can't level with Saitama. Guy's gotta have some proper rush for a fight.

    Putting up a good fight and actually defeating him are two different things though.

    I would only want Saitama to have a difficult fight one day. You know the kind of fight he craves for .
    I would hate it if Saitama ever lost to anyone. That is just plain wrong.
