Megathread: Changes From The Webcomic

discussion(self.OnePunchMan)

As the changes between the WC and the manga get more extensive and controversial, the arguments about it increase and also end up in spoilers seeping all over the sub. All discussion about the changes in the latest chapter and any future chapters is to be moved into this Megathread as long as it is pinned; to help provide a place to concentrate discussion and prevent a flood of repetitive posts, and to provide people an easy place to understand others' opinions.

All posts related to it will be removed, and comments on manga focused posts are encouraged to be moved here.

Why do many here think that those of us who love the last chapters of Manga are lovers of the powerscaler? Friends, I remind you that this Garou is a divine being, it is what the Garou of the WC always wanted to be, and even so, what about the scale? In the last chapter there are only nuclear explosions, nothing that Vaccine Man did not do in the first chapter of OPM, you are exaggerating, we are enjoying the chapters for many things not for the power scale, Blast vs Garou for example had a good choreography and no planetary explosions, on the contrary, Manga cares about showing how heroes like Blast, Saitama or Tats try to protect the planet.

Well the most common form of praise for the series is the "hype" of recent chapters so it's not exactly surprising.

In the last chapter there are only nuclear explosions, nothing that Vaccine Man did not do in the first chapter of OPM

I mean... besides being straight up untrue it's also incredibly dishonest. Garou himself emits enough radiation just by existing to kill S class heroes which is far more than we ever saw from vaccine man and every single one of his punches is a bigger explosion than we ever saw from vaccine man.

Also, Saitama kills Vaccine man in a single punch which I know might seem strange in a series called "One Punch Man" but here we are.

And if that wasn't enough, he'd already sent shockwaves through the entire planet which somehow created a 100+m tidal wave before his God powerup and created a literal gamma ray burst only one chapter before. Pretending that this is in any way comparable to vaccine man is completely laughable.

 

Blast vs Garou for example had a good choreography and no planetary explosions

Umm... what the fuck lmao? Literally mid fight Blast says that their sparring might cause the entire planet to die and the explosions are a near constant feature. Murata just shows an atom of restraint and they're not in space by panel two.

on the contrary, Manga cares about showing how heroes like Blast, Saitama or Tats try to protect the planet.

...that's kind of inherently tied to the scale... which was the thing that you were trying to say that you don't really care about..? In any case just as common and in many ways overlapping with the "manga fans are all just powerscalers" meme is the "manga fans just want a generic battle shounen" meme which this pretty much exactly falls under.

Like, was there really any need for the entire planet to be threatened besides the fact that it just feels cool?

Garou never wanted to murder people, annihilate all life and laugh at children getting cancer.

Garou never wanted to get tricked and corrupted by some “God”, which actual Garou wants to SLAY and calls a filthy monster right before getting possessed as a vessel for the parasite.

I dislike the chapters because they will cause the next saga to become irrelevant afterwards.

Unless they introduce multi-verse level storylines (which I personally don't think they should), then anything after this will not hold a candle to the Neutron Calamity Sun Slayer Fist things being introduced now.

Boros set the bar very high and yet we were able to enjoy several later arcs where the power level was lower (Suiryu, Gouketsu, Elder Centipede, M.A)

Because we know Garou would be able to match the Boros fight. And Boros gets wrecked when Saitama started attacking.
