The anime version of One Punch Man is really accurate on regard to the manga so nothing has been revealed in the manga that hasn't in the anime. As you mentionned, in the manga, Saitama followed what he would call a hard training every day : 100 push-ups 100 sit-ups 100 squats 10 kilometers every day no air-conditioner As a result, Saitama loses his hair, ...

TL;DR: One Punch Man is not a parody of a single manga, it is a parody of the whole shonen genre. It makes fun of its codes and therefore can be seen as a parody. To help understand it, I will compare One Punch Man to Dragon Ball. I will use the anime for comparison, but it is pretty much the same for the manga. This can and should be applied to many shonen ...

No, he can not breathe in space. In the chapter 47 (35.2), Boros punches Saitama so hard that he is sent flying towards the moon. When he lands there, he does his best to hold his breath:

She's Natsuno Himiko, from the one-shot Dangan Tenshi Fan Club, from same author and artist from One Punch Man. So, sadly, she won't appear in One Punch Man.

Out of universe (aka, in the real world), OPM is definitely a parody of seinen and superhero stories (Power Rangers type stuff, in particular), especially at its inception. So his power simply is, and serves to parody the aforementioned genres, as indicated in HamtaroWarrior's answer. He is just the hero that shows up to vanquish the monster at the very ...

As you stated, you must be rank 1 to receive a promotion. The current rank 1 in A-Class is the hero Sweet Mask. Sweet mask made a point that the reason he stays rank 1 in A-Class instead of moving up to S-Class is to prevent unworthy heroes from being promoted. Aside from being rank 1, you must also pass an interview. Ultimately, the decision to move up ...

Saitama's real reason to be hero was intended to be satire over common cliche reasons of most heroes. If you think about it, it can be literally rephrased as "Does one really needs reason to help another people", which itself is actually nice idea for manga to show, if you are looking for some deep meaning.

In the anime and manga we cannot answer this question, as the two have never actually faced off. However, a confrontation has occurred in the webcomic*. The basic rundown is as follows: *Since some people seem unaware of this, One Punch man originated as a webcomic (chapter links are at the bottom). It is the fundamental canon of the story, from which ...

Is it possible for everyone to be on S rank this way? Nothing has been mentioned on this subject in the manga. However, we could imagine that there is a time limitation such as: After someone moves up to the next rank, the one taking the #1 place must wait XX days/months before being able to rank up. But this is only speculation. What's more, every ...

You should start from Chapter 42 of the original manga. After the destruction caused by Boros and his defeat by Saitama, the space ship is taken by Metal Knight. The Hero Association HQ is rebuilt. Chapter 42 picks off with S Class hero, King (ranked 7) facing off a reptile monster and then, Dushimof, a machine god created by the Organisation.

As Eumel's answer points out, in the manga nothing says whether he is training or not. However, I think it is safe to say that he is NOT training anymore, as the power he obtained is clearly too great for him to have any "exciting" fight. The picture below, shows Saitama defeating Vaccine man in the first chapter. He is clearly pissed off that his fight ...

In the One Punch Man Wiki, the page about Genos says: Genos is a 19 year old cyborg and the disciple of Saitama. He has an entirely mechanical body in the model of a handsome young man. His face and ears look like that of a normal human, made of an artificial skin material, and his eyes have black sclera with yellow irises. http://onepunchman....

Because that's just how it is. Saitama is SUPPOSED to be boring and silly looking by design as part of the comedy. Instead of a "cool" looking hero like Genos, who in any other work would be a shoe-in for the main character, the story ultimately revolves around Saitama. Now...Murata's version does give Saitama his due when he's being serious or intense, ...

From what I was able to gather, yes, she does. From a Q&A, Murata : Hahaha there is no such setting about no panties Furthermore, According to Murata, few years ago the animation team from Madhouse asked him whether Tatsumaki is wearing any panties, to which he answered she does. The webcomic also depicts her wearing one and King even sees them....

Saitama was defeated in the first season of the anime. He engaged in an eating contest against Genos and lost by a large margin. He has never been defeated in combat in the anime or manga to date.

Firstly, the Manga isn't headcanon (Note:A lot of fan made manga does exist). It is a detailed redrawing of the Webcomic, with extra chapters occasionally drawn in. The Webcomic is way ahead and is more or less the same, word-for-word if compared to the completed chapters of the manga.I personally recommend reading the manga first and then continuing with ...

I'm not sure how you missed this if you've read the manga. As mentioned by people in the comments, this will be eventually revealed, specifically starting at Chapter 37. In this particular chapter,

While I do like Sonic much better, it's pretty obvious from what we've seen so far: (Manga Spoiler Alert) 1.Flashy and Sonic were from the same ninja village, same ninja class (44th "End Class" or whatever), same generation. Flashy was number 1 from this class. 2.The two ninja dudes (upper classmen from the same ninja school and village), that ate the ...

As mentioned in this answer, When heroes are ranked #1 in their class they can choose to stay at the top of their class or start at the bottom of the next class. There is no other way than being #1 to rank up. Therefore, as long as you are #1, no one in your class except yourself can rank up to the next class. Sweet Mask is "supposed" to be way too ...

Yes. The name of the song is "The Cyborg Fights" or it can be found under the name of "Genos Fight Theme" Here are some links where you can listen the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2D6g0__M3sk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DdhF0XlqJrg It is present in the official soundtrack of the anime.

In the One Punch Man Wiki at the Tatsumaki page, it is stated : ONE has said that Tatsumaki is stronger than 100% Mob, the protagonist of ONE's other work, Mob Psycho 100, but against ???% Mob, there's no answer. Still according to One Punch Man Wiki, ONE said this during his Niconico interview.

This can be answered from the information in the bonus chapter, Threat Level, in Volume 15. The threat level and hero rank comparison shown in the chapter are: Wolf Level - needs 3 Class-C heroes or 1 Class-B hero Tiger Level - needs 5 Class-B heroes or 1 Class-A hero Demon Level - needs 10 Class-A heroes or 1 Class-S hero Disaster or threat levels above ...

Even though both the character are Hero antagonist, still there is quite a difference between these two. Hero Killer: Stain aka Chizome Akagur Stain is a cold, unforgiving man with a sense of duty to cleanse society of false heroes. He believes that those who work as Heroes to collect income are unworthy of being called the name and only All Might is a ...

The credit for defeating Elder Centipede Centichoro probably went to king like how he usually gets it for the monsters defeated by Saitama. But in the matter of Genos, Bang and Bomb knowing who actually defeated Centichoro, Genos knew it was Saitama. Because as soon as the centipede disintegrated, Genos asked Saitama what is he lacking again? Genos asked....

Short answer: I would suggest you resume reading at Chapter 42 of the Webcomic, which is just after the conclusion of the Boros arc, because while the next several chapters will be familiar from the manga the deviations start to mount up pretty quickly. As YLombardi indicates, this of course heavily depends on what currently constitutes the "latest release"....

Without specific spoilers, the short way to put this is that Saitama has proven himself effortlessly faster and stronger than everyone he encounters, including those specifically known for being faster or stronger than everyone else (except Saitama; and Blast has not been seen in real action, and certainly not relative to Saitama). Spoilers of certain ...

The basis of your question is already kind of iffy. Your ".01 second" figure is almost certainly based off the following page (and preceding ones) in Chapter 84 of the webcomic: You can see something like 14 to 16 attacks were made in this picture, and the timer from the previous panel, before any attacks, was reading 00:00"00'01. So the attacks happened ...

The Wikia states: And it's written clearly that: Bang is seen utilizing this to prepare for his fight with Elder Centipede, so Bomb and Genos could escape with the unconscious heroes. Which is right when King interferes the fight. He doesnt state the technique's name. But he powers up:

Although In this List of One Punch Man Episodes Geno's Description in one of the Main Character's entries states that: Before meeting Saitama, Genos was a normal, happy boy who lived with his family. One day when Genos was 15, a crazy cyborg destroyed Genos' town, killed his family, and left Genos alive and severely wounded. Professor Kuseno, a doctor of ...
