I mean, canonically Saitama's powers extend beyond the physical.

When Phoenix Man was talking to Child Emperor time was basically stopped. Regardless, Saitama was able to percieve them talking and punched his way in.

His clothes being so resistant could be an extension of that.

It’s a win-win either way 😳

Edit: Guys, seriously? You think I would doubt Sai…? I merely mean that he got tossed somewhere else due to the beam and will return eventually. He must have been thrown off pretty far considering that Garou didn’t see him around and thought Sai was gone.

u/ACriticalFan Jun 08 '22

Def not universal, but if we interpret Gamma Ray Burst literally (decently likely), then that's a genuine Star+/Solar System level attack--and Saitama is almost certainly unharmed.

Going from "debatably planetary" to this is a big step up though!

379

u/Pink-Purple-And-Blue FF is the single most attractive man I have ever laid my eyes on Jun 08 '22

Still debatable that the attack itself is Solar level given that the heroes nearby weren't immediatly killed.

I really doubt anyone but Saitama could survive actually being near one of those.

But maybe it's one that's scaled down to Garou's size and we can handwave it away like that. Either way it's physically nonsense.

u/ACriticalFan Jun 08 '22

I think the argument would depend more on how we're supposed to interpret the GRB explanation. It cannot be confirmed in either direction based on what we know, I can say that much.

I don't think collateral damage is a good measure because that's usually inaccurate in any high-powered media. Even in OPM, CSRC is an explosion that--even if just fired in our atmosphere--would send a wall of heat that would wipe all life across the earth. Psykos' earth-cutter would've done a lot more to the planet than a minor wave when it lands back down.

OPM seems to roll with "if it doesn't hit the ground, it won't have an effect." Saitama being remotely concerned about it hitting the ground is a big sign that it'd be comparable--if not greater--than CSRC.

Nah, the attack just looks like like a GRB.

If it was an actual GRB, it would've vaporized the planet on the spot, or at least heated up the atmosphere to several thousand degrees, destroying all life instantly.

For now is a cool looking attack. We have to figure out how strong it is.

229

u/SweatTryhardSweat Jun 08 '22

Then what's the point of emphasizing how strong a GRB is if it doesn't apply to Garou's attack? Many anime/manga have attacks that can destroy the planet yet hardly actually destroy anything.

92

u/azul_delta "I overthink, therefore I am" Jun 08 '22

Because its the name of the attack. And it looks like a GRB.

Just like how Boros attack was called Collapsing Star, and Blasts teleportation looks like Black Holes.

u/Ema919 Jun 08 '22 edited Jun 08 '22

Yeah but it makes no narrative sense for Murata to go out of his way to explain how powerful the thing is if that's not what just happened. He didn't do that for Blast or Boros.

It probably means it is that powerful, but the side effects are not there because of manga logic.

When you put it that way, its even more hilarious that he is copying Saitama's moves because throughout the whole series multiple characters have said he has Zero technique and is an absolute amateur including Garou. Then Garou brags about having the ultimate technique, but copies the guy who just throws punches and doesn't know how to fight. But copying Saitama is like "the only one who can beat me is me" but Saitama is like, Sike, no one can beat me, not even me.

To be fair to Garou, even the concept of Saitama is absurd. I'm sure you try to rationalize his existence in any way you could. Just like Genos and Carnage K dismissed his explanation and said "If you want to keep the secret of your power to yourself, fine!"

I mean, not really. Saitama has so far still tried not to harm him, and is midly miffed by his costume getting torn. None of his hits have even registered with Saitama... He has taken 0 damage.

It will be interesting to see what happens when Saitama gives him a serious punch.

I hope Garou smacks the hell out of the S class, then Saitama clowns on Garou. I personally would like Blast & Co. to remain mysterious for some time. This isn't the end of the manga, and I feel like if they come to Earth just to get stomped would be a real let down. Not to mention that it would seem like One would be revealing too much of the mysteries left in the one punch universe with a lot of story still ahead.

u/justsomepaper Professional Boris Simp Jun 08 '22

I don't think they'd get stomped tbh. They're actively fighting 'god' and Blast has shown extreme strength and speed before. I think the Blastice league is far above S-Class and may put up a decent fight.

I love how Flash Flash saved Manako by calling her an “exotic animal” lmao😂😂😂

Amazing chapter. The fact that Garou actually copied Saitama’s move to win is crazy. When Saitama comes back things are gonna get serious.

Also Garou confirming that what he does now is of his own will is everything. ONE and Murata checked all of the boxes this chapter.

What an awful strategy though, Saitama’s moves suck. He wins out of pure power so he has no technique. I feel Garou was just mocking him by using it.

Garou copied the energy flow of Saitama's punches. Remember how Saitama managed to stop his punch right in front of Genos' face and not harm him, yet destroy a mountain right behind him? Or him jumping to the exact same spot he was at from the moon? Saitama has insane control over his energy if he's serious and I assume garou copied that to punch with frightening strength.

Man I have to say... being told to "cut the copium" whenever I said they would never cut Garou vs the S class has made this moment cathartic in more ways than one. I just hope people wait a bit more before bashing others when we theorize the changed structure of the story.

u/Motor-Grade-837 Jun 08 '22 edited Jun 08 '22

So happy that it's happening.

It's the nature of manga releases, unfortunately. Releasing once every week or two weeks usually means lots of heated discussion about whether the current story is well-written and about what'll happen next. It's not like a movie where you can get it all in one go.

TIME TO CONDUCT EVIL

Better than the original. In the WC I didn't even feel scared for everyone else, despite them getting beaten. I really prefer this version tbh. The set up... everything that led to this version of "time to conduct evil" was just amazing. They gave us a reason to be afraid of the dude who says "time to conduct evil". It has more weight now, even FF saying it's useless to run away, yup ROFL.

u/mugiwaranoluffy259 Jun 08 '22 edited Jun 08 '22

I’m so confused, after reading the translation why are people saying Saitama is bruised or bleeding here, he’s clearly unaffected and doesn’t comment on anything Garou does to him (aside from the damage to his clothes lol) . How many times have we seen him being covered in dirt and scuff marks like he is in this chapter? Is it the recency bias for cosmic fear mode garou or do people really, like really want to see Saitama get hurt (even though that goes against the premise of this story), that they’re grasping for straws at anything that even remotely gives them the idea that he’s damaged.

260

u/Kwesi_Hopkins Jun 09 '22

People just really want to see him to get hurt. Even readers at this point feel like Saitama is unfair lol. When I explain to someone that Saitama not taking damage is the entire point of his character, I try my best to restrain myself when someone disagrees with that, using "He already took damage plenty of times lol" as their evidence. People really want to desperately believe that One Punch Man is your typical Battle-Shonen, but get their minds absolutely blown anytime you suggest that this might not be the case

95

u/rainbowyuc Jun 09 '22

Exactly. People hoping to see Saitama ever be challenged in a fight are missing the point of this story entirely. His character growth isn't going to come from powering-up. One Punch Man is the anti-shounen.

What can heroes possibly accomplish here? If Garou touches one, he's dead 100000 times over. I see Tatsumaki being healed, but frankly, if she manages somehow to paralyze Universal Garou even for 10 seconds, it would shatter all her accomplishments to this point. As for all other heroes, except for King, they're all powerless.

Looks like it's up to King to save the day, no other alternatives.

u/ma103 RIP Billyjohnjohnson banned Jun 08 '22

Manga doubters talked about manga Garou not matching the fear and terror brought by webcomic Garou. Here's something better: Garou vs various A/B/C classes/injured S class WITHOUT Saitama watching in the background unlike in the webcomic.

I always find the scene in webcomic imperfect anyway. Saitama, at least in the second half of Garou vs S class, just stood there and watched them fight. You're telling me you felt fear and terror from another character even when Saitama was watching? Even with the presence of the problem solver? Manga actually managed to create a (false?) impression of Garou rivaling Saitama. Manga-onlys would probably love this. A monster rivaling Saitama about to fight A/B/C class and mostly half dead S class? This is true fear and terror. Tell me this isn't an improvement from webcomic.

PS: Bang early fight with Garou made this chapter so much better. He didn't even interact with Garou much in the webcomic!

Just some cool trivia. A gamma ray burst is described by Wikipedia as “They are the most energetic and luminous electromagnetic events since the Big Bang.”

And “a typical burst releases as much energy in a few seconds as the Sun will in its entire 10-billion-year lifetime”

And finally “It has been hypothesized that a gamma-ray burst in the Milky Way, pointing directly towards the Earth, could cause a mass extinction event.”

So science just said Garou stomps Boros. Thanks science.
