One-Punch Man Reveals How Saitama Feels About Fighting a Strong Opponent

One-Punch Man has reached the climax of the fight between Saitama and Garou with the latest chapters of the series, and the newest chapter has revealed how Saitama feels about finally getting to fight someone worthy of his strength. The Human Monster saga has been the longest running single story in the series to date as it had building Garou and Saitama's full fight over the course of the chapters so far. Now that the two of them have finally come to blows in their first full way, the series is living up to the potential not only for fans, but to Saitama as well.

Garou has been evolving with his monster genes over the course of the fight, and the latest chapters have kicked off his strangest evolution so far as he's bonded with an evil space god to become an all powerful cosmic being. But as fans have learned about Saitama, he's still very much stronger than every threat he's come across. But it's all changed with Garou as not only has he survived taking a single punch from Saitama, but several punches. This has gotten the hero reflecting on fighting somehow strong.

Chapter 165 of One-Punch Man's official English language release with Viz Media's digital Shonen Jump library continues the fight between Garou and Saitama following the cliffhanger where both of their supremely strong punches collide with one another. Blast teleported them away to a distant point in space as the nuclear reaction would've destroyed the Earth as a whole, and Saitama realizes he has landed on one of the moons around Jupiter. It brings him back to his fight against Boros early on in the series, and it's here he realizes he's fighting a strong opponent. 

But because he's still holding onto Genos' core and mourning the death of his friend, he can't really enjoy the fact that he's gotten a fight on his level. It's all turned to rage at this point, and now he's going harder than ever before. Because while he can't enjoy the fight of his dreams, he appreciates that he can go all out more so than ever before. But how do you feel about Saitama's fight with Garou? Do you think Garou is really on the same level of strength? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments!
