One-Punch Man Cliffhanger finally brings Saitama back to battle
One-punch man finally brought Saitama back to battle with the cliffhanger of the new manga chapter! The manga has been embroiled in the series’ biggest conflict yet over the past year as the Monster Association saga has come to a head. The S-class heroes who are still standing continue to fight against the latest Dragon-level monster threats that only seem to get stronger with each new chapter in the series. But the tables could turn again soon as Saitama finally finds his way back to the battlefield.
Saitama may have quickly defeated the Monster King Orochi in a battle fans have been waiting to see (which he was ultimately disappointed with), but after that fight Saitama spent the majority of the chapters we’ve seen this year trapped underground. with Flashy Eclat. But when the number one ranked hero, Burst, finally made his debut in the series, he finally helped Saitama out of his trapped situation and rescued him and Flashy Flash using one of his portals… which comes into play with the most recent chapter.
Chapter 152 of the series continues the assault on the various S-class heroes and reveals that their every effort from the previous chapter is still mostly in vain. Monsters that had seemingly been defeated before, like Vomited Fuhrer Ugly, return to battle, and others like Black Spermatazoon evolve to new levels. Fortunately, Garou has a change of heart and manages to eliminate a number of these threats. The fight is still clearly far from over, and the final moments of the chapter see Saitama and Flashy Flash emerge from Burst’s portal.
Saitama’s arrival means that the hero’s victory is essentially assured, but what will complicate matters is the number of opponents to face. Not only that, but Saitama still isn’t seen in his best light by the S-class heroes. There’s also the fact that Garou appears to come out of his monster form, meaning Saitama’s attention goes be a little sidetracked. It is also a question of whether he will get into the fight soon.
Either way, it’s a very exciting throwback to just when the heroes ran out of moves to use. What do you think? Curious to see if Saitama will get into the fight next?
