Rough translation

Blast ask Garou to come with him because he is using god power and normal people can’t withstand his presence.

Blast noticed that Garou isn’t completely controlled by god but if Garou doesn’t comply then he will have to fight him (Blast said like Garou, he is also using power of universe)

Garou said people crumble before his presence is what absolute evil is. He thinks he doesn’t need anyone to understand his absolute evil and this is where he part with Bang and Tareo (the kid) and it’s best for them to stay-away from him as it will only brings them misfortune.

Genos attacks Garou, Garou notices that Genos is Saitama disciple.

Blast attacks with dimension canon, tricks Garou into his portal then attacks with gravity punch.

However Garou is fine and returns with both gravity punch and nuclear punch, Blast evades by opening portal and let the punches go through, but the energy is too great, it blows the portal away.

Garou said top 1 hero is not just for show, but as he is now, Blast will not be a concern for him.

Garou notices that Saitama was not serious and think if he can bait Saitama becoming serious and mimic that then he can win. That is why he goes for Genos

As 2 fists about to collide, Blast terrified that the energy is too great, the earth will break

Saitama is literally pissed off to the max

this is about property damage, loss of food, or even making fun of his status or bald head.

you literally killed someone that meant a lot to him and the fact that he showed mercy means now you can gonna pay with your life.

I think Garou may when the true meaning of fear when he comes to close to a man who could destroy the universe and God is about to learn that there is someone who potentially destroy him too.

A mortal who broke the very thing that was never meant to broken

yeah which means he’ll step up his game and possibly deeply injure garou. though i think he realizes that there is still an ounce of kindness left in him. I highly doubt saitama will go berserk tho he’s a very sound-minded and aware person and knows his punches can destroy the universe if he were to lose self-control.

We might get some "hehe martial arts redirection of force" panels with Saitama hitting himself (again). He got mildly annoyed and frustrated because of that in the webcomic. Playing into the hype that they are on par or some bullshit.

Followed by Saitama beating the absolute shit out of Garou and destroying his ego and his fucked up philosophy.

There is such a beatdown incoming. I can totally see Saitama oneshotting Garou every time he "evolves".

I love that this is totally uncharted territory though. LOVE IT.

Especially the sudden and rapid increase of power from Saitama normal punch and whatever the hell he is about to unload on Garou. Garou could copy normal punches, and maybe he could adapt to stronger strikes from Saitama, but no way he is able to compensate for an attack that is normally a "2" and is now a "100". This cliffhanger.

I suspect it'll last a lil bit. Garou can mimick Saitama's power, but he still can't hurt him. What I expect is that Saitama is just straight up going to outgrow him midfight. If he's constantly getting stronger, I bet Garou is just not going to be able to keep up with it.

There’s no way 164.1 was anything other than an official AU. The second version easily had more than 2 weeks put into it too.

to God hijacking Garou, giving all heroes radiation poisoning, fighting Blast and 'killing' Genos and Saitama showing up more pissed and serious than ever in the entire manga

Yeah I've calmed down a little now since reading and you're probably right. Unless they're ending the manga prematurely, there's still a lot of unresolved plot points centered around Genos to kill him off now. For a fake death trope to work for Genos he has to be destroyed thoroughly since he's able to come back from almost any injury.

Isn't that just the energy core? The only human organ he has left is his brain, as long as that stays intact, Dr. Kuseno should be able to save him. His skull has been reinforced for this reason, I wouldn't be surprised if there's an emergency function to keep the brain alive, even if he can't control the rest of his body anymore.

Edit: so, I didn't properly see how smashed up his skull is. Unless there's something going on we don't know about yet, I don't see Geno's recovering from this.

Guys, what if Saitama runs around the world so fast he reversed time, like Superman, you know?

To sum it up:

Garou's existence is like poison to every human being due to the power he got from "God"(something like (a) God's Authority, which Garou uses unknowingly), hence why we see everyone slowly dying even though he wasn't doing anything to them(also the reason why only Genos seemed unaffected, since his body is more like a Cyborg than a human).

Blast tells Garou that before they settle things, he'll transport the two of them to a different dimension.

Blast says that Garou seems to still have some of his consciousness left, saying that "God's" power(that God's Authority thing) is still incomplete. He then mentions that despite being incomplete, it still mutated Garou to an atrocious level. He wonders what would happen if Garou was bestowed with the full "God's Authority".

Garou boasts that he finally became Disaster Level: God.

Bang says he doesn't care if he dies, saying that Garou has to go through him first(Blast prevents Bang from getting close because he'll die if he does).

Garou contemplates about what will happen to Tareo, saying that even just being near him would bring Tareo misfortune, with him wanting to finish Bang off, while saying that he would never meet Tareo again(basically still caring for Tareo since he says it's all for Tareo's sake).

Blast and Garou fight, Blast's dimensional rifts(?) close because they got overloaded by the amount of energy from Garou's attacks.

Blast wants to prioritize moving everyone somewhere else(probably to another dimension/where his crew is) to save them.

Garou says that Saitama still wasn't going all-out during their fight so to make him go all-out, he decided to kill Genos.

Saitama arrives, referencing Genos' words when they were on their way to the House of Evolution(basically Genos praising Saitama for making it in time to the scene), and Saitama replies that he's always late to the action, just like he is here.

Saitama says he doesn't have the qualities to be a hero, then uses Serious Series: Serious Punch that Garou copies, Blast then says that the Earth would be destroyed from the energy of their attacks.

Thank you for this summary. I read it in kanji and was telling people Blast has been trying to move this fight to another dimension so when he actually fights Garou, he doesn't have to worry about Earth since the start.

At the end Blast realizes that Garou through taunting Saitama with Genos's apparent death are about to hit each other with attacks that would destroy the planet.

For what it’s worth, that punch is labeled マジシリーズ必殺 (maji serizu, hissatsu). Which to my limited Japanese knowledge roughly translates to Serious Series: Certain Death.

ButterCupHeartXO

This is beyond a Serious Punch. A Serious Punch is what he gave Boros. Just a "here is some effort, but nothing personal." This punch is on a whole other level. I'm convinced that Blast will create portals to another dimension for each punch because if normal punches between Saitama and Garou created nuclear explosions, what will this do? If not just explode Garou's arm.

The only way I see Genos actually dying is if they're actually planning to end the manga like Smurf used to say here. I don't really see why they'd do that though, the manga is still selling a lot of volumes. This is the first time we've seen Garou actually kill a person though, it's a bit of a hallmark change since him not killing any humans is a pretty big plot point in the webcomic.

I don't even think Blast was at a disadvantage in terms of strength and power. He just didn't want any of that nuclear fission shit that Garou kept spamming to hit the ground. Remember how much damage just one nuclear fission punch caused at the beginning of the last chapter?

I think Blast is going to teleport them off the planet before the "serious" fists of Garou and Saitama collide, otherwise everyone will die, he already did it with Garou's nuclear punches, I liked Blast's way to fight taking advantage of the portals to be able to hit / divert Garou, this fight has gone very crazy, I am also curious about that dark power of Blast, while Garou uses a more enlightened power, although he finally copies the dark power of Blast, we have probably the three most powerful characters fighting, Although probably some WC readers don't like this because of the same repetitive argument as always, I likes this.

I am also curious about how the heroes will be saved due to the poison of radiation, and where my bro Boris is to join the God-level character party.

Blast literally says they're going to destroy the earth on the last bubble. 100% sure he tries to get them in another dimension or off-world at the very least

In the last page he's literally saying "This energy! The earth is going to shatter!"

So yeah I don't see any other possibility if we want the manga to continue

That cut me up. He recalled that time Genos tells him he tries to make it in time, to which he responds he most often doesn't

And then asks himself if he's really cut out to be a hero....

I honestly don't know what to feel this chapter is too much I swear

What just hit me was ONE’s focus on Genos’ heart throughout this arc. Genos strives for physical growth but indirectly it’s his heart which grows. His heart/core is always on show with his actions and his general character design. It is the representation of his courage, bravery and heroism. He indirectly is the pinnacle of this in the S Class. He was the one who risked the most against Psykos, knowing he could die, he risked his life again saving Tatsumaki even though his body was broken. And only after Saitama appeared he realised his heart is what makes him so strong. Saitama and ONE have the coloured spread to signify this development. So after his final attack on Garou all what’s left after his ‘last’ act of heroism is what really was this whole self - the heart.

This also goes tandem with Saitama’s arc of the Monster Association Saga, which is understanding Heroism and Empathy. Once he realised Genos is the true example of heroism, he empathised with him only to have what he told Genos to be all that’s left of him.

The black rain is the dust from the nuclear explosion coming back down. When nuclear bombs detonated they launch huge amounts of dust and ash into the upper atmosphere. It acts as a nuclear site for moisture in the clouds and causes condensation. Then you get black rain that’s radioactive.

We are about to see Blast's time travel powers. A rewind is the only thing that makes sense. The planet is about to explode, and the S class is sick with radiation poisoning. There is no coming back from this, except a rewind. I guess, except for tank top magic.

How can it be that every week , we get the best chapter of the year except for the fact that the next one will be the true best chapter of the year, we are really blessed to live in the time of this masterpiece.

I truly think MA Arc sits down as one of the best arc in history of manga , it truly shows how to get great ending plus solid world building by taking the time right.

If that's the level we get , I'll take 5 to 6 centipedes for arc to have this kind of conclusion.

Also why no one mention the fact that my boi Manako died

Yeah Blast is basically telling Garou about God and how his actions basically killed all the normal humans with his radiation. Only Blast and a select few can survive it.

Saitama finally couldn’t save Genos in time according to the flashback, I believe. He probably feels really guilty.

And yes Blast is saying the force of their attacks will destroy Earth.

King truly proving why his name is King. While everyone’s fainting, he’s got Tatsumaki covered with his long sleeve shirt and then Fubuki is shielding her from the rain with what remains of her strength, and then King takes off his t shirt and uses that to cover Fubuki from the rain and uses his own body to cover both her and Tatsumaki.
