    Looking forward to it coming out on blu-ray so I can watch it.

    Yeah, Garou definitely went further than he did in the web manga to prove his 'Evil'. And spoilers:
    he actually sent Saitama into a rage that we've never seen in him before.
    end of spoilers

    I have a pet theory that the Murata redraw is going to end with the climax of the Garou arc. Things are feeling very "final arc-ish" in a way that they weren't in the webcomic.

    Given how the much greater emphasis on "God", the introduction of Blast and how the stakes have been dramatically raised in light of the most recent chapter - I don't see how they would square this stuff with the events that would notionally come after from the webcomic. The denouement of the webcomic is Saitama beating Garou clean, kind of how things work before Murata changed his mind and redrew the fight to end up with the Cosmic Fear/God stuff added, and then Saitama understanding Garou's ideology and how they are kind of similar, both hobbyists but with Garou taking the easy way out of becoming a monster rather than being a hero.

    At the close of the story, Saitama remains as a person who sees being a hero as a hobby, albeit one he takes seriously, and is emotionally untouched by the events of the story. He's still the comedy hero he's always been, the premise remains "Saitama versus the world," insofar that he is completely resistant to playing by the rules of the setting, which includes being truly emotionally engaged with them. Saitama as a character is kind of typified by his numbness to all the wild shit that happens around him.

    Meanwhile in the redraw, with this dramatic turn; I'm not sure how you can walk that back. The stakes are real now for Saitama in a way they never have been in any other part of the story, original or redraw. While I'm not certain, due to this and the other factors above, I think the redraw is going to end with this arc.

    Which is a shame because the Neo Arc and what ONE does with Amai Mask over in the webcomic is pretty cool. Plus we get Saitama versus Tatsumaki, Metal Bat gets to do some cool stuff and Superalloy Darkshine gets fleshed out some more.

    Though, I guess they already overrode Darkshine's arc with him getting over his weakness in the course of this battle.

    Huh...

    Welp, that's my theory anyway.

    Personally, I don't feel that the manga is going to "end" after Garou's arc, so much as going on a hiatus ala Chainsaw Man. As for the premise, I feel that it can still apply for the most part, but what Murata and ONE seem to be going for is that Saitama has limits to his emotional passivity and lack of engagement when the situation is dire enough. I've speculated for a while that the underpinned purpose of the God within the narrative was to serve to gradually arouse Saitama's suppressed emotions as the series progresses.

    Yep, there it is. CBR has some weird problems with hyphens, now. The above is an old poster's name, which I saw was censored while reading an old thread.

    A hiatus would make a certain amount of sense given the next story arc is basically stuck on hiatus over in the webcomic, isn't it? While Murata isn't afraid to deviate from the source material, if he goes much further we will have a Fullmetal Alchemist original anime situation. (Which I'd be cool with, the original anime still slaps and is underated.)
