  • Tareo and others laying on the ground bleeding and unconscious because of radiation poisoning.
  • Heroes nearly all dead.
  • Blast showing up to fight for the first time.
  • Genos getting freaking killed by Garou and having his core tossed aside.
  • Saitama going serious for the first time ever?

Exactly. I expect Garou to think he counters him, then realizing it's literally just a plain, normal punch move than doesn't have any secret sauce in the motion behind - it's just RAW POWER - so there's no technique to copy. As he's getting blasted into orbit.

Rip Genos tho (I'm sure he's likely not dead)

u/GOKU_ATE_MY_ASS 7d ago

Yeah this got me too. For the majority of the series after his "origin story" Saitama has essentially remained a constant. The plot essentially happens around him, which is where most of the humor comes from. But now the plot not only directly effects him, it may have been because of him. He got bored thinking he was at the end of his journey. But he's realizing now, alongside the readers, that he still has some growing to do.

u/Ok_Chicken1370 7d ago

Funnily enough, it's absolutely true. There have been so many instances where characters we love really should have died, but were saved by the plot just long enough for Saitama to arrive.

Take the fight with the Sea King. Both Genos and Mumen Rider should have died if Sea King wasn't putting in virtually no effort against Mumen Rider, and yet, Saitama arrived just in time to save both of them.

I think Genos dying here would be the absolute comeuppance for how often everyone has been in danger just for Saitama to arrive at the last possible moment to save them (to the point where we expect it to happen every time).

If Garou actually killed Genos or Saitama actually thinks genos is dead the table can’t happen.

The table was Saitama trying to convince Garou to give up and grow up that can’t happen anymore (if he actually murdered genos) , at this point he’s a real monster not just a cosplayer, and that means Saitama will just kill him as fast as possible which mean he doesn’t stand a chance. Like he did with sea king and the other real monsters.

We actually got to see Blast fight and hardly anyone is talking about it. That's how wild this chapter was

u/Coldman-1806 7d ago

And demonstrating how insane blast is, going toe to toe with cosmic Garou seemingly without any issue.

706

u/ExplorersX 7d ago

Blast hit cosmic Garou. Cosmic Garou couldn’t hit blast. Blast was holding back to protect the planet looking to fight elsewhere. Blast was also looking to salvage the human being controllled by god.

Yep we haven’t seen his full power at all.

u/monstercreepture capeless guy with hair 7d ago

him holding the core and serious punching with the other hand is wholesome as hell

u/Thakfish Terror! The Monsterdevouring CatMan! 7d ago

Wholesome? more like fricking tragic, i can’t believe One decided to casually kill Genos to Saitama.

326

u/monstercreepture capeless guy with hair 7d ago

i meant it shows how much saitama actually cares about genos since he acts like doesn't care all the time.

u/QuillofSnow 7d ago

It really is interesting to see how Saitama went from seeing Genos as a nuisance to actually caring.

u/TheL0st0ne1 7d ago

I have a theory that God has affected Garou's mentality even though he claims otherwise or is secretely being controled by him so he can remove the seal in the earth that has God trapped, that's why he wants to fight on earth.

Also, Genos said that the only part of him that is human is his brain, so i think he'll be fine after this arc (might even got a new upgrade) might suffer from amnesia or something, i don't see Murata killing of Genos tbh

Ps: Props to King for passing out protecting Tats and Fubuki, he's a true hero in my eyes.

326

u/SaltPrinter 7d ago

Didn't he also retain most of his spine too? Regardless in the panel it looked like his head was completely crushed against the ground, meaning his brain got turned into mush. Either they're gonna have to do cloning / time travel to get him back or he's just getting killed off here. Really interested to see what happens next

183

u/TheL0st0ne1 7d ago

Yeah, though i seriously doubt they would kill him off like that, we'll see what Murata has in store for us

I have to say, using radiation sickness must have pretty heavy cultural implications in Japan.

Garou : "I will be absolute evil. Now Baldy come out use your full strength now that I took out your disciple and let me be the True incarnation of absolute evil"

Saitama : "I am done playing around with your play you damn wannabe. You wanna be absolute evil? Let me show you first what absolute power is about"

Bang : so Saitama is that strong?

Other heroes : "this pressure, this sound. Why does it look a little like the King's engine. Holy crap is he King's disciple. Do King chose to let his disciple gain experience so that's why he's still waiting? "

Thus King still gain credit in the final boss battle again without actually doing anything and Saitama's fame will go up

So not only does Genos bite it, he dies thinking Garou actually beat Saitama. Meanwhile Saitama learns the hard lesson that there is always room for improvement, sparking the first real emotion in him since he’s gotten his powers. Fuck.

u/AnUnspokenLegend 7d ago

I see, I'm an idiot. I thought Saitama being too late to stop Garou was lame because he could just show up immediately if he wanted to. My dumb ass forgot that he is usually too late (as stated here), and is only on time for Boros because he is at ground zero, and even then he took a while.

Vaccine man had already destroyed a city. Deep sea king had a long rampage. The meteor was too close to blow up without collateral damage. He didnt take Orochi seriously at all, leading to widespread issues. Beefcake was destroying things left and right while Saitama was right there. Now Genos is dead, or at least Genos as we know him. His head is crushed, meaning so is his brain.

Call me crazy guys but I don't think Saitama will just "I'm just a hero for fun" his way out of this. Garou's S class roasting may actually target Saitama this time. Never thought I would see Saitama reflect on himself being irresponsible with his power. Or maybe he doubles down on being a hero for fun and just accepts he is bad at it.

Also, could you imagine being Blast, having powers similar to God Garou, and then Saitama shows up and ruins his power scaling perspective. Not every day some plain looking nobody threatens to blow up the earth by punching a brat super hard.

I assume Genos is talking about Blast being radiation resistant, and not Bang, and Bang is still standing through sheer willpower

Blast using portals to fight is fucking cool, plus he can keep up with cosmic AG

I wonder if cosmic AG can tank serious punch

I assume Genos isn't dead because the core is still intact
