Warning: Spoilers for One-Punch Man Chapter #194 (Japanese release)Man one punch just took a big step forward in the ongoing plot twist God Finally by collecting the necessary pieces to get answers about this mysterious villain. After tracking down both the monster Manako and the number 1 hero, Blast, the two potential sources of information are finally able to answer some long-awaited questions.
Manako AKA Oculette, is a monster who met Saitama and Flashy Flash in the Monster Association Headquarters, and was with them when they discovered the mysterious cube that connected them to God. Of course, Blast appears soon after, takes over the cube, and helps the three finally escape the underground base. Blast seemed to know more than he was saying, but he quickly left without giving Saitama’s group time to actually ask any questions.
Chapter #194 of One-Punch Man seems to make a big step forward in explaining some of the major current mysteries in the series. The chapter ends abruptly with Saitama and Flashy Flash locating Blast at the Hero Association headquarters with surprising ease, suggesting that the next chapter will actually give them a chance to talk and perhaps find understand more about God and Blast’s relationship with it.
Blast’s appearance means he is about to explain the secrets behind God’s threat
In the world of One-Punch Man, Blast is a rare character, to the point that his abilities are almost completely unknown even deep into the story. Since even the Monster Association’s battle wasn’t enough to get his attention, it meant that whatever Blast was planning to do, it was extremely important. This was confirmed when Sitch, who ran the Hero Association, gathered a group of S-Class heroes to tell them about Blast and his twenty-year battle against God. This crusade and God’s power to “corrupt” people caused Blast to cut ties with the Hero Association. However, as a result, Blast hasn’t really had a chance to see what Saitama can do.
While God’s backstory has been slowly unraveled in the manga so far, it’s quite surprising to see that Saitama and friends were able to locate the Blast so quickly – even if it was played for effect. humorous response. Flashy-Flash spent several chapters tracking Manako, and after all that, it turns out that Manako actually doesn’t know much more about God than the heroes. Assuming Blast is actually willing to talk to them, there might finally be some real explanation about what God is and what threat it really poses. Maybe Blast might even know “The Abominable Fist That Defeated God” and realize that it actually describes Saitama.
One-Punch Man isn’t afraid to explain his mysteries sooner than fans expect
Besides lore and potential exposition, this could also give fans a chance to learn a little about Blast as a character. So far, Blast has shown to be nice to Tatsumaki and very mission-focused when out on the battlefield, but other than that, his personality is unknown. More importantly, this is further proof that the series isn’t afraid to subvert the tropes of the genre by having its main characters find explanations for such grand mysteries, despite the passage of time. Very long construction. After all, in the previous chapter, Saitama did a “speed run” to fight the final boss in a fantasy world, which could foreshadow an upcoming battle with God. Even if that fight doesn’t happen anytime soon, Blast’s appearance will certainly shed light on one of the biggest mysteries in history. Man one punch comics so far.
