How is Saitama being OP as fuck supposed to advance the story exactly?
His struggle is not one of winning fights, but of gaining recognition for his actions. He is a literal godlike being that is unrecognized due to circumstance or bureaucratic bullshit. No one even knows how powerful he is due to rank bullshit
Saitama is the viewpoint character and technically the protagonist, but he functions more like a philosophical antagonist to everyone else in the manga. Don't think of it as a linear battleshonen story, but more like a fresh take on the 'wise old man's travels' or something.
Blast (ブラスト, Burasuto) is a S-Class, rank 1, superhero for the Heroes Association.
are they ever going to show this character? i dont expect him to be anything new for saitama though. its just that theyve introduced and not said anything else about him/her since.
its not a proper answer to your question, but he may be of SOMETHING 'interesting' added....eventually??
This is so far from the truth, did you even read / watch OPM? Jesus fuck you are dumb. He constantly complains no one knows who he is, and he is jealous of the fan clubs for some of the other heroes. Hes not a fan of the ranking system, but that doesn't mean he doesn't care about being recognized.
but anon i can't read when i'm also trying to see things
It doesn't, it's just there to entertain normalfags with their cool explosions and badass characters. It's basically the Michael Bay of animu capeshit like Dragon Ball, what's worse is that it was adapted from a webcomic, like how SAO was originally was an internet fiction posted by the author in his blog.
He could just take off a piece of clothing and throw it in the opposite direction of the Earth. He's infinitely powerful so he could probably just spit instead of remove his cape or anything.
You really don't get this story
Its not a shounen where the hero gets stronger and fights to beat the monster. The hero is already the strongest, in terms of level he's perfect, unbeatable.
The drama is brought from there in some ways; other characters fight things at times for drama, but with Saitama it will always be over in one hit, every fight is blue balls for him. Like if you're dick has the ability to make everyone cum the second you stick it in, so you can never find any enjoyment yourself.
He will never get the great fight he wishes for, yet he keeps going.
This story is a comedy and subversion on the tropes, not "Exactly as the tropes should be and should always adhere to them". The journey and struggle is not about the hero getting stronger, but rather everything else. Read the manga and maybe you'll get it, but maybe not if you're stumped already.
I'm not watching the anime, is it true the adaptation put more action and, at times, fucked up the comedic timing of the manga?
I've saw people say this, and also see more than enough people treating it like an action series instead of a comedy to wonder if it's true.
One thing that has been sorely lacking so far is the amazing faces that ONE was capable of.
I don't think the comedic timing is too far off, but it a little different than how I felt it happened in the manga. Also, probably simply because of the pacing of anime, it feels like it is moving much faster than the manga.
The anime is still good though, I think.
They've been pretty faithful so far. The first episode made it clear that Saitama won't be fighting anyone seriously. Anyone who thinks its a normal battle series is stupid.
>being this mad that something good is popular
>How is Saitama being OP as fuck supposed to advance the story exactly?
The story is not about figthting. It's a drama.
It's about what it means to be a hero.

You know, this ep made me remember when we were all just happy dreaming of Murata's art animated.
Oniisama is perfect though. Saitama is just strong.
This. Maybe not /a/, but certainly OP and a majority of the retarded shitters in the threads.
Just because it has fight scenes doesn't mean it's a battle shounen, and this show will not ever be one. It's a comedy with underlying themes that challenge battle shounen tropes and societal values.
It pisses me off that filthy secondaries can't appreciate this.
Specifically what remains for heroes in the absence of reward, recognition, or challenge while surrounded by assholes and unable to properly give even adversaries due respect.
Most of what is left is jokes.
oniisama lost his feeling his is a different plight.
Nii sama is basically about a force of nature exploring and deciding what humanity means for an individual. In this case it means muh sister and friends.
OPM is human enough already. He deals with the question of the monkeys paw. What happens when you get everything you ever wanted but it's not all you thought it was. How do you console that with yourself between dreams and reality.
And the series isn't about just Saitama. In the manga it was more fleshed out. The first arc was Saitama beating up different monsters, questioning his own existence. It's like ONE himself asked where he was going with this. Then Genos appeared and it was funny as fuck, bringing contrast to Saitama's character. Other characters started to get introduced such as Licenseless Rider, King and the jail guy. Now it's about developing others' story arc. Saitama holds back and let's others try on their own. If they fuck up or are too weak, he comes in and saves them. If he'd up his game, all the other heroes would lose experience and have no reason to develope.
Would Saitama and any Emiya interact well?
