    Not really a fan of the latest redraw in One Punch Man. Nerfs Orochi, the Serious Move kind of doesn't make any sense and we're definitely committing harder to the whole '"God" is the final boss thing' which I think is one of the weakest parts of the OPM redraw.

    Makes it more generic which is not what the series is strong for. You look ahead at where the webcomic is and it's actually quite politically-based at the moment and this god nonsense isn't a factor.

    Very satisfying chapter of Kengan Omega this week.

    Your bullshit assassin magic stuff is no match for solid MMA fundamentals and experience.

    Honestly, it depends on how ONE and Murata handle it. There are already speculations that the supposed "final battle" between Saitama and God will be more about Saitama having self-revelations regarding his goal to find purpose or enjoyment by being pushed to his limits, which would make for interesting character development for him.

    I've got faith that ONE can do a good job with it. The final arc of Mob Psycho 100 pulled out almost every stop possible and landed really well in terms of the emotional impact and overall character arc for Mob, so I trust him as a writer.

    But...

    Eh.

    Mob Psycho was a very different beast to what OPM is. Saitama is much less of a protagonist than Mob was and has a much less pronounced arc in terms of his development as a character. The balance between this really very well-constructed world, that is made up of every other character, and their relationship to Saitama as motive force is really well done, especially in the current webcomic arc.

    So... what does God add to this conceptually? Like, either he's going to actually test Saitama which means everyone else is irrelevant anyway or he gets killed in one shot like everything else in which case why do all this additional build. In the latter case it's got stakes but I don't know if it has tension, if you get what I mean?

    Like I say; I've got faith but the way they seem to be trying to cue up all this God stuff much more aggressively than the webcomic, and having Blast being doing secret magic cube stuff in the background, I worry that it's committing to hard to trying to get the story to fully turn around Saitama eventually and that isn't what makes the series good.

    I appreciate this is a very workshopped response but it's where I'm at in my thoughts on the series. XD
