The battle between Saitama and Tatsumaki has begun! In this chapter, we get a good look at what these two martial artists are up against. We learn what kind of person Tatsumaki is and the connections he has to the God plot.

Battle between Saitama and Tatsumaki begins

One Punch Man, one of the most popular manga series in the world, has recently launched its newest chapter. It is a bi-weekly release and focuses on Saitama and Tatsumaki.

The most notable feature of the new chapter is the fact that Saitama and Tatsumaki will be facing each other. This is the first time that the two will meet in the manga. They will be competing against each other across cities.

In this particular chapter, the battle between Saitama and Tatsumaki will culminate in a fight with a Dragon-level monster in H-City. The battle will also lead to the destruction of a criminal gang in N-City.

While this is not the first time that the two have fought, this is the first time that they will be meeting in a multi-city battle. The battle will also feature a few other characters. Speed-o'-Sound Sonic may also want to take on Saitama.

Another thing to watch for in this chapter is the revelation of Forte's surgical enhancement. It is also possible that the chapter will end with a bang, as it is expected that the two protagonists will be involved in a massive climax.

Tatsumaki's ties to the God plot

Tatsumaki's ties to the God plot run deep. She is a major power in the One-Punch Man universe. In fact, she has fought god-buffed opponents such as Monster King Orochi. But she has also become frustrated with her own powers. The desperation she felt at the end of the last chapter has prompted her to retaliate.

The next chapter will begin with Saitama and Tatsumaki fight. It will be a self-contained clash, meaning it will not take place in the Hero Association building. Instead, it will take place across several cities.

Tatsumaki will use her psychic powers to try to break free from her ties to the Blizzard gang. She is not just worried about her own group; she is also worried about her sister, Fubuki.

This is one of the reasons that the manga has been using the Tsukuyomi group in the final arc of the manga. According to Japanese mythology, Tsukuyomi is the Moon God. Perhaps this will be a sign of God's imminent arrival on Earth.

Interpretation of the chapter

There is no doubt that a lot is happening in One Punch Man chapter 178. The manga has been drawing on the Psychic sisters of the world and now they are going to face each other in an upcoming showdown.

When the story starts, Forte is in the hospital. He is worried about his voice. However, he doesn't know that it was surgically enhanced. But he thinks that it is all because Saitama is a Psychic. And because Saitama was not taken care of, Forte is angry.

A couple of days after the release of the first chapter, we learned that a new group called the Blizzard of Hell was a part of the attack on the Monster Association. This group is headed by Tatsumaki. They are one of the main powers of the One Punch Man world.

When the Blizzard Group revealed themselves to the world, they were physically destroyed. But they were also introduced to the Hero Association, and they now acknowledge that Saitama is the real hero.

Next chapter

The latest chapter features a new fight between Saitama and Tatsumaki, who are both known for their powers.

In this chapter, Saitama and Tatsumaki begin a confrontation that will take them across several cities. They will also battle a Dragon-level monster in H-City.

In this chapter, Tatsumaki will increase the intensity of her psychic powers. This may be a sign that she is developing feelings for Saitama. However, she may be easily tired. Also, she might have reopened wounds after their fight.

After their battle, Blizzard's group is in the process of moving to a new headquarters. As part of the move, she brings her Blizzard Bunch with her. These members include Air, Forte, and Chain-Toad.

Meanwhile, Saitama and Tatsumaki are still trading barbs. But despite their differences, they both are desperate for a challenge.
