It's on my to-do list. I'm more interested in how this started; some guy made a webcomic with crappy if endearing art and it gained popularity to the point where it was picked up to be serialised, is that right?
>> No. 82546

I'd also heard that apparently, they found it because Yusuke Murata happened across the comic, read it, and basically said "I must draw this" and that's how it got serialized, but I'm honestly not entirely sure.
>> No. 82547
As far as I can tell:
1. It was a crappily drawn but smartly written webcomic by ONE that got popular (I'd post the link but the last time I tried I got a 1 hour ban because the domain is blacklisted for god knows why)
2. Murata Yusuke was a fan, contacted ONE over twitter proposing his remake (which is pretty much a panel for panel re-draw barring the animatic-type action scenes, which are all Murata)
3. ONE agreed, and the remake is now being serialized online by Shonen Jump.

Not quite. ONE and Yusuke Murata became bro's and apparently Murata was all "I want to use my insane artistic talent to draw this" so he went to an editor and pimpslapped him into letting him do whatever he wants together with ONE,

>> No. 82563
The webcomic is on chapter 89. ONE has two other series he's doing, though (Mob Psycho 100 and Makai no Ossan) so the update schedule on the webcomic has slowed to every couple of months (the last one was in February.)

I have no idea what the plan is when Murata catches up on the chapters. Presumably it'll keep its weekly schedule. Maybe ONE will switch to just writing?

Sorry for being a little off-topic but after scanning through the 4chan /tg/ archives I could totally see the "three hundred and sixty degrees of punch" superhero Ball of Arm's Man as a character in the One Punch Man series.

Sure he'd likely get attacked by a bunch of c-listers thinking he was a mysterious being but he'd bro-fist with Saitama.

Heh... imagine if the rolling portal to the arm dimension fused with the ultimate one punch-KO hero....
>> No. 83119
I agree he looked more menacing when he was more humanoid. But I assume he gets one-shot by Saitama in the webcomic so he needed a power-up because Sonic was actually doing well against him.

Man he's just going to be jobbed like he was a human Z-fighter anyway, Who cares?

It might have worked better when the art was so primitive but now its just tiresome to watch,
he might be a handsome cyborg but he's not like he's arrogant about his rank or his superpowers, with the new art making the story seem more 'serious' and such watching him be bitched in every fight or emergency {the only exception being him defeating a cyborg-ape off-panel) so he lacks any credibility is pretty dull, situations like this generate no interest because you know how its gonna turn out.

Are you joking? This latest arc was pretty hilarious with the added bit of King Trying not to shit his pants and pretend he could do anything and everyone overestimating his power and motivations as a sharp contrast to Saitama's schtick and Saitama treating Garou like he was essentially just an angry little kid/kind of sad man-child, which he totally was.
>> No. 87274
Personally I see OPM as sort of an outlandish parody on DBZesq manga.

Far too often we the audience are aware that Luffy or Goku will always win out and beat the bad guy in a straight fight, so half the time the author's job of keeping tension is just making sure the hero is inconvenienced some way so that the lesser side characters can run the risk of getting killed in place of the hero. And this always happened in DBZ and (to a lesser extent) One Piece.

OPM just takes that general plot arc and takes it to its most ridiculous and logical conclusion. We know Goku will beat Frieza so why don't we just cut the bullshit and have Goku kill Frieza in one panel? The focus of the story then becomes around how other people react to and think of Goku and the resulting comedy.

It's hilarious (to me anyway) to see the top 10 A ranked heroes all gathered in one spot, watch as each page gives them a cool design and name and makes you think there's some elaborate background there and that this is a full and rich world full of unique fighting characters who all have their strong points... and then it shows us Saitama in his ridiculous gag-manga style and you remember that he alone could probably destroy everyone there without so much as a thought.

OPM is the strange and demented tale of a gag manga character wandering into a legitimate Shonen Battle manga and the humor comes from how everyone reacts to his gag manga power.
