One-Punch Man Gives Saitama Major Hero Promotion

One-Punch Man has kicked off a new arc with the Yusuke Murata illustrated manga release of the series, and the newest chapter of the series has given fans a major update on Saitama's hero ranking following the massive Garou arc! The Monster Association saga of the series was one of the longest in the manga adaptation of ONE's original webcomic to date, and the series is finally ready to move on to whatever the next major story will be. But it's a changing world following all of the monster attacks, and the Hero Association is settling into a new status quo.

With the newest chapter of One-Punch Man's manga now kicking off the first major step of its newest arc, and it's revealed that the Hero Association has now all moved its forces into a huge new facility where each of the heroes can be easily dispatched to protect the real VIPs. Saitamatears through this fortress' defenses of course, and as the newest chapter of the series comes to an end fans see that he's been moved up in the ranks as he's made his way to Class A.

What is Saitama's Hero Rank in One-Punch Man

As fans saw over the course of the Monster Association saga, many of the heroes had been taken out of the equation by the dangerous monster forces. These heroes were either injured beyond recovery or maybe even killed, and that shook up the rankings quite a bit. While the other major heroes have yet to be revealed (and thus yet to confirm whether or not they have moved up in their rankings either), Saitama has officially be confirmed to now be Class A, Rank 39.

With this next arc putting Saitama more in the spotlight as the rest of the heroes see him making an explosive new entrance into their fortress, it's only a matter of time before Saitama gets more recognition through future chapters. Now it's just a matter of seeing whether or not the rest of the heroes connect the dots to how much he's contributed to the fights in the past.
