What Happened in Chapter 178?
In Chapter 178 of One Punch Man, titled “Take it Outside!”, Air wakes up to find that some modifications have been done to his body. Meanwhile, Forte plans to seek revenge against Saitama, believing that he has Esper powers. However, his friends inform him that Saitama has been hit by a car.
Elsewhere, Saitama tries to stop Tatsumaki, who is using her Esper powers to put pressure on him. Frustrated, Saitama asks Fubuki to take the Blizzard Group members outside so that he can take care of Tatsumaki. This leads to Tatsumaki quizzing Saitama about his relationship with Fubuki, to which he responds that she is merely an acquaintance.
Expectations from Chapter 179
Saitama was faced with a conundrum in Chapter 178 of One Punch Man, titled “Take It Outside!”. He awoke to find Air had made some modifications to her body, while Forte planned his revenge against Saitama, believing him to have Esper powers.
However, Saitama’s friends informed Forte that he was hit by a car, leaving Saitama to attempt to stop Tatsumaki from using her Esper powers against him. Frustrated, Saitama asked Fubuki to take the Blizzard Group members outside, leading to Tatsumaki enquiring about her relationship with Fubuki, to which he only replied as her being an acquaintance. This upset Fubuki, as Tatsumaki increased her power, causing the room to start twisting. With no other option, Saitama had to grab Tatsumaki and take their fight outside. We know that nothing can beat Saitama, and Tatsumaki can’t match Saitama. This makes it even more interesting to watch the battle unfold. Tatsumaki will try to defeat Saitama with new moves. However, this was all in vain, as neither her attack nor any of the others hurt him. This fight will be the most interesting and devastating one we’ve seen in a while. This is one of those fights we’ve all wanted to see for a long time.
The battle between the strongest Esper and the strongest hero continues forever. Also, the pace of the manga is progressing nicely as we are getting more information from this arc.
