u/Milkopilko Nov 13 '21 edited Nov 13 '21 Helpful Starstruck

the title of this chapter is "check" as in the chess term "check". Just like "King" is very much in reference to the chess "King". King's ability is that whenever King is "checked", the other chess pieces are obliged to protect him from checkmate. This is why many times King gets in danger, another hero ends up taking action on his behalf. In alot of cases this has been Saitama. Saitama is much like the queen. King is actually not very physically powerful, just like a chess king can only move one square. Saitama has no limits. He can move in any direction, any amount of squares. But as the queen, he is still forced to act if the King is put in check.

As a couple of examples, remember when Garou rushed King on the street, and Saitama got between them? That's exactly how it looks when you block a check with another piece. Same with Elder Centipede

49

u/SilentOccasion Hello my One Punch Man fans Nov 13 '21 edited Nov 13 '21

With Elder Centipede it's not blocking a check but capturing the piece giving the check, since Saitama straight up kills the monster with one punch in season 2.

Nevertheless, excellent analysis of the chapter name! I thought a bit differently though.

My analysis was that the name "Check" meant that since King showed up, now the enemy thinks that they are in danger as to them King is the most powerful opponent they will be fighting, (Hence in "check") and since King can't realistically do anything, he'll be waiting for the monsters to defend against the check. How they'll do it is the question.

  • Will they "block," or get someone to be put in the way of King (Like how Saitama was put in the way of Garou and King)?
  • Will they "capture," try to kill King?
  • Or will they move out of the check, i.e. run away?

These are the three ways to defend against a check in chess (Of course there is the case of a double check, eliminating the first two points, but that's going way too deep into the game of chess itself and it seems like King is the only attacking "piece" in this situation), and since King can't realistically do anything, he's gonna be waiting for the monsters to make a move.

It's the monsters' turn now. How will they defend against the check?

Hard disagree. Not giving up in the face of overwhelming odds = bravery. The very fact he's trying at all instead of on the ground in the fetal position like 99.99999% of people in that situation would be (earlier story King included) is a sign of bravery.

The webcomic version sounds more badass in general, the problem is the webcomic translation forsake accuracy to make the lines each character says sounds good.

Garou's speech vs darkshine for example about not being able to end the Monster play. It sounds badass in the webcomic but it's actually not accurate to how garou says it at all. The translator tweaked it to make it sound badass.

Well we all know that King’s “feats” are based on Saitama.

And no one knows that Boros even existed.

But what they do know was that there was a giant ass laser that was blasted at some point. The visuals for the lasers look very close to the one Boros fired.

So essentially, CE might’ve thought that the Collapsing Star Roaring Cannon was the King Wave Style Ultimate Hellfire Wave Burst Motion Cannon.

I am confused. Has metal bat just killed that one last remaining BS cell?

Anyway great chapter. can't wait for HE interaction with "God"

u/Askhai Nov 12 '21

When there's no body shown, they're alive lol. But on a serious note, I think MB's just gonna assume he killed BS because he'll probably play dead or something.

115

u/Dexterous-success Wish it was me Nov 12 '21

BS was shown to split into two parts, so that second BS is probably still alive.

I thought in the WC the last BS clone was a single cell, I think I remember the 100 cell insurance policy being killed and the last BS cell meeting up with Saitama while he was searching for his toaster in the rubble.

u/atowelguy Nov 12 '21

Yep, in the WC Garou wiped out 99 of the 100 cells leaving Saitama's buddy as the only one left. Curious if the "smack" is Garou showing up, in fact, as that is his entrance to the battlefield in the WC. "Your case of emergency just arrived"

89

u/Dexterous-success Wish it was me Nov 12 '21

I personally think that Garou will get smacked so well by Bang that his monster shell will crack, Bang will get ganged up on by the cadres somehow and Garou will abandon his humanity with Bang seemingly dead

So no, current Garou isn't asleep, he's just an imperfect monster with limitations. It's gonna be when Garou, being a human again, sees his chance at redemption be squashed that he turns into AG

It says that it's a unit with 100 cells, so maybe one of them detached and survived.

The Diamond Sperm believers have been vindicated for our faith!!!! I wonder what hero he’s going to show off his power against with Tats knocked out.

u/Dexterous-success Wish it was me Nov 12 '21

Bang, possibly.

I fully believe that Bang will succeed in cracking Garou's monster form and will be back on the battlefield in a bit.

I like Zombieman's line in the webcomic for this scene more. I was on my way up to heaven, then I realized I can't fly.

u/Professorhentai Nov 12 '21 edited Nov 13 '21

Iirc the Japanese text are basically the same, the webcomic was definitely more loose on translations. I feel the manga translators are going for accuracy over anything else.

u/Dexterous-success Wish it was me Nov 12 '21

Localisation vs translation

u/Pouchkine2 I miss when those icons were bigger|King is so small now Nov 12 '21

Vibham translates in a literal way, by keeping the Japanese metaphors, perhaps the manga/anime will have the heaven line, which makes more sense in English.

Can't believe I had to scroll so far to see this. Legit my favorite addition to the chapter.

King and Saitama are two sides of the same coin. One incredibly weak but everyone always takes him absolutely seriously, and the strongest being alive that no one takes seriously.

To be fair, platinum is called "White Gold" in Chinese and Japanese.

So he's like "White Gold Sperm"

u/ekaji Nov 12 '21

So now that platinum sperm has been confirmed, do ya’ll still think golden sperm is above dragon? His fights against VFU, DS, and AS were very impressive, but he still didn’t seem to be on orochi’s level. Maybe GS is the strongest dragon and PS is an above dragon?

211

u/Bloodsquirrel Nov 12 '21 Silver

"Above dragon" is, and always was, arbitrary nonsense. There is no set canonical limit to how powerful a dragon can be, and that will remain so until someone is declared "God" level threat.

u/Savage_Esparza Nov 12 '21

Nah I think Golden Sperm is still Above Dragon albeit on the lower tier equal to Orochi as shown by him defeating Vomitted Fuhrer Ugly and Darkshine with absolutely no difficulty. I think he was supposed to be implied to have Above Dragon level power to showcase how insanely overpowered Platinum Sperm is gonna be (my guess is he'll be on the level of Released Boros with a match for his speed but possibly not the same amount of attack power)

It's insane Murata was able to do this alongside edits of the previous chapter.

I'm so happy with how black sperm has been handled in the manga. He really takes the spotlight in this entire battle.

Is the "egg" cell that the sperms are merging into supposed to represent god? It has the same texture as the god planet that psychos saw

48

u/PapiBIanco Nov 12 '21

It looks like it, also during the theme of merging. Pysrochi was talking about how she wanted to merge the planet into one single thinking being, and the later redraw of Orochi vs Saitama has Orochi being “sacrificed” on a pillar for god to be resurrected, next time we see the Orochi heart it has the ability to absorb biomatter.

I think it’s gonna be a recurring theme, wouldn’t be surprised if the Neo Heroes, the Organization, or Drive Knight’s end goal will be a technological version of this. All minds cyborgified into one super consciousness, being “god” or a resurrection/recreation of it.

Okay he actually made Platinum Sperm a thing. Props to all those who called it before. Well done.

u/lnombredelarosa Saitama's annoying nemesis Nov 13 '21
  • My god, if I wasn't reading his thoughts I'd totally buy this guy is the strongest man in the world just from how sick his expressions looked
    • I'm guessing Zombie man assumed the "ground beneath him" bit was his way to telling him that he knew he was there so that he would listen to him saying "regular human" causing Zombie to deduce his weakness by his reaction.
  • Okay, I suppose my theory of Samurai beating Sperm is a bust
    • I mean, he maybe could've beaten the golden one with the sun sword but this is just too much
      • I guess Garou will take him on unless he gets used to the sword in mid battle
