One-Punch Man: Saitama just did a Jimbei Move
Saitama has unparalleled power and unique problem-solving skills. His recent feat resembles one of Jimbei’s maneuvers in One Piece.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers for One-Punch Man Chapter 157, “Bad Boys”, by One, Yusuke Murata, John Werry and James Gaubatz available in English on Viz Media and Manga Plus.
One-punch manThe main character of Saitama is renowned for nonchalantly avoiding disastrous events and defeating incredibly powerful opponents without breaking a sweat. He possesses incredible power as well as unique problem-solving skills, and the bald hero proved it once again in the latest chapter of the manga. This time he channeled Jimbei from A play as he faced a gigantic wave.
When Bang’s fist finally broke through Garo’s senseless assault, the first thing the hero hunter did was attack the leaders of the Monster Association, killing the President of Barf Ugly and scattering Evil Mineral Water into the process. The liquid monster then merged with the ocean and got a huge upgrade, transforming into Evil Ocean Water. It was huge enough to be considered a tsunami, and it easily capsized a massive aircraft carrier.
In Chapter 155, Centisennin fought Garo with the help of Evil Ocean Water. The huge water monster fired at the Hero Hunter with a tower-sized beam of water. At that moment, Saitama broke through the surface of the water and unleashed one of his killer moves – Serious Punch. The punch was strong enough to cut the sea in half, calming the huge swell of water. Seeing what happened, Centisennin wondered if a tectonic shift had occurred. When the huge wave fell, the sea raged. The now kaput carrier was about to be swallowed by the wave, but Saitama was thankfully on deck.
Even though he could easily carry the plane, Saitama knew it was impossible because there was no foothold. He had to improvise and change his plan. Instead, Bald Cape sank his feet onto the carrier and used it as a surfboard. He easily rode the gigantic wave – large enough to make the ship look like an ant – after regaining his balance. Given Saitama’s skills, it may be safe to assume that the carrier survived the breakup.
Similarly, Jimbei once proved his superior skills as a helmsman at Whole Cake Island. Crazy Big Mom was riding a tsunami to catch the Thousand Sunny. Despite the risk of drowning her own island, she was determined to take the Straw Hats under the sea. Jimbei took the wheel and rode the wave of the Thousand Sunny, entering the space created inside the ridge. of a breaking wave. Needless to say, the crew of the future Pirate King escaped unscathed.
Saitama Surf Waterfall is not only a smart fix, it’s also a throwback to One-punch manroots, comedy and satire. The manga’s recent developments have been filled with tension, especially as there has been one major reveal after another. Although the seriousness matches the events perfectly, it overshadows the comedic tone of the manga, which One-punch man is famous for. The originality of Chapter 155 is a breath of fresh air and a nice break from all the suspense and excitement.
