With the entry of Tatsumaki in the same storyline as Saitama, a lot has changed in the manga. Murata’s take on the direction of the story is debatable. However, no reader can ignore the work that he is putting out every week. The last chapter pitched a fight that had been under the radar. That is right, the talk is about Tatsumaki Vs. Saitama. As the two converse, there is a good chance that they will end up fighting each other. Here is everything that you need to know about the new release, One Punch Man Chapter 179.
As mentioned, the fight between Tatsumaki and Saitama will come one step closer to breaking out. But knowing the repercussions of the last fight, Saitama is sure to distance himself from any such destruction that might put innocent lives in danger. His first choice would be to safeguard the common people. And secondly, he will try to talk it out with one another. Will Tatsumaki try to listen? Well, only time will answer this!
One Punch Man Chapter 179: What Will Happen Next?
The prediction threads for the new chapter are exploding with the name of Blast. It seems like he will be the hero of the next chapter. One Punch Man Chapter 179 has a lot of questions to answer this time. What is more shocking is the fact that the mangaka is bringing two chapters in one week. These are clear indications that he is working on God Mode this month. The bigger pitch at hand is a direct one-on-one between Tatsumaki and Saitama.
The conversation between these two was strange at best. And Tatsumaki did not like the proximity between Saitama and Fubuki even the last time. She does not want the little girl to be friends with someone who is not safe for her. One Punch Man Chapter 179 might as well pitch these two together. And Blast’s appearance will be the cherry on top for the newest outing!
Previous Chapter Recap!
The title of One Punch Man Chapter 178 was “Do It Outside.” The opening scene of the chapter was in the Hero Association Headquarters. And Air was the first one to open his eyes. He saw that Forte was next to him, still in a coma. And beside him were sitting Butterfly DX, and Chain’n’toad. This was the first time that Forte vocalized the theory that Saitama might be well-versed in the art of psychic powers. This must be the only way he was able to conjure such strong attacks. And he even manages to injure the fighter in front of him.
On the other side, a slight drama slacks between Saitama and Tatsumaki. The source of this was the punishment that she was giving to the Blizzard Group. Saitama was resisting the use of such powers on a group. But Tatsumaki was quick to understand that this was the man that was famous for being with Genos. The Caped Baldy then asks Fubuki to take everyone back to safety, and so is done.
However, Tatsumaki did not approve of the relationship that was brewing between Fubuki and Saitama. In the final act of the chapter, three powerful entities, Tongue Stretcher, Man-Eating Capybara, and Beer Bellee, are able to escape the prison. And these three Mysterious Beings stand in front of the heroes only to escape yet again. These are the characters that will bring the story to a major conclusion in the coming weeks!
Updates From Murata!
