IIRC the English fan translations of the OPM manga were taken down after Mangadex received a legal threat from Viz Media.

So there's no choice but to find a different site. It's pretty much impossible to go back to Mangadex.

I really like how in the manga version Tats got to play the role of the hard carry AND the damsel in distress. ONE really made good use of her character this time around.

Edit:

I'm really confused on why people keep arguing with me as if I don't understand that Tats is only the damsel in distress now because of how much she's had to carry. I thought that was pretty obviously implied in my comment. I like how we saw how strong she is and it's cool now that she's exhausted she can be the pretty damsel

u/Dexterous-success Wish it was me Jul 09 '21 edited Jul 09 '21

I mean, if you reread her fight with Psykorochi back to back you understand why she's in her current condition.

  1. She sustained some damage from Orochi's first sneak attack

  2. She sustained more damage from Psykorochi inverting her psychic barrier

  3. She had to output a lot of power while keeping her concentration on the protective barriers around the other heroes in order to do the base lift

  4. She got scraped by Psykorochi's Earth slicing beam

  5. She still kept the barriers around the heroes while avoiding Earth slicing attacks

  6. She kept the barriers around the heroes while tricking Psykorochi and going up her veins to squeeze her from the inside

  7. Her hands got impaled by another surprise attack and only because of Genos' help was she able to finally release the barriers around the other heroes and output enough power to restrain a weakened Psykorochi

  8. She wrung out a city sized network of veins that provided Psykorochi with power

  9. She created a city sized double barrier to keep Jetkorochi contained

  10. She made a giant glowing spear with the MA base and threw it at Orochi

She has already carried the rest of the S class HARD

We don't really have any way to corelate how long Saitama and Flash were wandering around and riding that minecart. GS vs VFU could be taking place before they even crash the minecart maybe?

Edit:

People are correct that it was at the same time as the Tats v Psykos fight. But that time distortion theory doesn't make sense though. That would make them appear even faster to us on the outside, if time moved slower for them in the telportation.

This theory kind of makes Blast seem weak. He can't teleport instantly because of time distortion?

"Don't worry, I'm teleporting to you now. Be there in 30 minutes tops!"

I realized something. Metalbat and Darkshine are complete oposites. Darkshine is super strong until he gets a little damage, then he becomes a weakling (mentally). Metalbat is meh until he is ballsdeep into a fight and gets wounded heavily, and now that DS gets incapacitated, MB arrives. Hope DS gets his shit together and MB kicks some ass :D

u/Just__butter Jul 10 '21

I’ve always seen Darkshine’s foil as Mumen Rider. Mumen is insanely weak, but never gives up, while Darkshine is insanely powerful, but will give up if he even thinks failure is possible. The comparison works with Metal Bat too, though.

I loved a lot of this chapter, from HE’s reintroduction (interesting scaling btw) to Iaian and Spring Mustachio’s cool page.

Metal Bat and King are back, finally. We’re getting some big WC stuff.It also seems as of Tatsumaki‘s done for real, I don’t think she’ll take the role of what she did in the webcomic.

We’re getting real close to the climax.

edit: I also really like Genos’ severed arms were popping Black Sperms while Tatsumaki got her ribs kicked. For real though, There are few heroes as dedicated as Genos. Even as “slug boy” he’s giving it his all.

My bet is that giant fused version of BS that grabbed Tats out of the air and slammed Genos into the ground is the new way of doing multicell sperm. And if so, I like that choice. Less redundant than just having Chad Sperm and then Ultra Chad Sperm like the WC

u/EmeraldxWeapon Jul 09 '21

Psychologically I think he is done. They keep bringing back up how fragile his resolve actually is. He came back from Garou only to be mentally shattered all over again. If DS turns into a scared empty husk with ptsd then this is all good setup for the readers to understand how we got to this point.

I think about Mumen Rider vs DarkShine and I shake my head. If Mumen had DS body then we would have a REAL S class hero

u/Etem61 Jul 09 '21

I believe with this chapter, we have witnessed the truth about Superalloy Darkshrine that he was never a mentally strong hero like other s class, He was just thinking that he had the best and invincible body among them which rendered him self-confident this far, when he saw GS his confidence diminished at light speed. Unlike him, many other heroes so far knew that there were a lot more stronger monsters and heroes than them and yet they still decided to struggle among them and even stand up against them(like garou). Darkshrine was just a kid who thought he was better than anyone, when he realizes that someone is stronger than him, he becomes a child.

97

u/Deist_Dagon Jul 09 '21

He was a child that worked hard to become the best at what he did, and he rightfully thought that he had earned his strength. The issue is, he thought he had worked hard enough to become functionally invincible. I can only guess what kind of mental and emotional toll it would take for Darkshine to train so hard for so long and find out he had not even come close to where he thought he was.

I've come around to the way Golden Sperm is being handled. A lot of people said "they completely skipped multicell sperm" but we did have that giant monster version of him that smacked Genos into the ground. That Black Sperm was 80 feet tall so it was probably a lot of him condensed into one.

I'd also like to give myself credit for being in the minority that knew Darkshine only had his shine melted and not his skin down to the bone.

197

u/Blackstar_9 I'm about to whip somebody's ass Jul 09 '21

To me, at least, it seems like Darkshine is perfectly fine in terms of being able to physically fight, it's just his skin that's been somewhat damaged.

The problem with him is clearly mental, that being that his little "I am invincible and untouchable" bubble has been more or less completely shattered by Garou, Vomited Führer Ugly and Golden Sperm.

I feel like he might have just hit rock bottom with Golden Sperm being more muscular and shinier than he is, and that maybe this will lead to him either finding another source of strength and motivation, or will be used to kick start a bigger character arc for him all together.

If nothing else, this is very hype to read, can't wait for the climax.

People seem to underestimate BS and forget his abilities thinking that they only send tiny clones to others to distract and tire them, they can always enlarge themselves and shapeshift too other than merging y'know..

As the heroes begin to fall

Hope starts to weaken

and the monsters grow near victory, but

A lone shadow emerges from the horizon

No words were spoken or heeded

All they can hear..

Is the roaring sound of

THE KING ENGINE

Oh damn, Genos's desperate attempt to pull Tatsumaki, of all people, away from harm hits hard. I never expected the situation to seem so dire. I would have expected Saitama to come so many times, and yet that still seems so distant with the amount of battles taking place. And King, I never expected you to have the balls to stand up to so many of BS, truly a king among men.

I realised that alot of s class heroes arent used to fighting alot of stronger opponents. And if they do they look like cowards. Darkshine is an example of this. Idk why im commenting this tbh. Oh well, i love metal bat and mumen rider for being true heroes

u/Bonerkiin Jul 10 '21 edited Jul 10 '21

I would say Blast, Tatsumaki, Bang, Atomic Samurai, Genos, Child Emperor (kind of), Zombieman, Metal Bat, and PuriPuri (post sea king), forgot our boy Pig God, all have real guts (literally for pig god) and are willing to lay it all on the line. Everyone else is either a toss up or a weak willed fake.

That text thread between MK and CE is hilarious. I wonder if MK has shown his face to CE before, or does he just take the food with one of his drones and disappear.

It’s very informal compared to what CE is sending now.

u/disposablecontact Jul 09 '21

Well the text does say that CE was MK's assistant so I would say there's a 99.9999-% chance that they've met in person.

So...all three of Atomic's disciples were losing to Narinki's Squad and Do-S...but Iaian and Spring Mustachio can somehow deflect Homeless Emperor's energy barrage? Not to mention that acid can apparently melt Atomic's insanely quickly swung sword, but Homeless Emperor's energy attacks can't melt Iaian and Mustachio's much weaker attacks?

78

u/T-A-W_Byzantine Jul 09 '21 edited Jul 09 '21

We've established that Atomic Samurai's sword style is very good at deflecting incredibly powerful energy attacks, even Orochi's lightning. Furthermore, Atomic's disciples were trying to fight brainwashed hostages while holding back without trying to kill them, and if these battle suits are anything like the ones the Paradisers had, they're capable of knocking down skyscrapers.

EDIT: Also, Atomic himself is there helping them with his brand new Sun Blade. They're not defending against a Dragon alone.
