i love how people forgot we frequently get troll chapter full of nothing but visual porn, like the one that showed saitama position in boros airship, or just a fucking robot flying, heck, even first trining fight between saitama and genos has lot of image dedicated for visual porn only.... please, this is nothing...

uuh so many complaining, really surprised that after 98 episode people still complaining for this manga pacing. Dude did you forget bofoi introduction chapter, 2 week wait just for robot landing scene (for those who just follow after the anime, i'm talking about young jump web version https://tonarinoyj.jp/episode/13932016480028985359 )

I completely agree with @Psychronia, there are both pros and cons to both versions, and though this arc is starting to feel pretty dragged out, I'm sure it'll be great to binge-read once it's over: some great series don't really benefit much from being read one chapter at a time.

For shame, comments. No "Oh my god, they killed Dopey Bird" jokes?

Regarding the pacing, I think that this long wait is mostly a drag because we're waiting for them as they come out. As a final product, this'll probably be amazing. I've gone back and read through the martial arts tournament/Monster Association Attack arc a few times and it was much more enjoyable compared to reading it as it came out.
Between the quality of a work as it comes out, which lasts approximately a month per chapter, and the quality of the final product, which will last for effectively forever once it's completed, I'm fine with priority for the latter over the former.

Regarding how it compares to the webcomic, I actually really like the expansion each hero gets, as well as all the cool or attractive (*cough*Captain Mizuki*cough*) heroes that didn't even exist before. I remember wanting more of everyone as I read through the webcomic, and the manga is delivering.
That said, it's also true that this kinda takes away the punchline of the various jobber fights the S-class heroes got to show what they could do. Rather than making the S-Class heroes a reference to a type of hero, the manga just outright made them that character. It's a matter of preference whether you like this change or not, but both have their pros and cons.

Hi! I know we haven't had any OPM to read for a long time.
But you must remember that this and the original webcomic are not the same.
This is a remastered version to enhance the art (and as of lately, to add some scenes and depth to some characters).
This is not a serialization that wants to hook you up and keep you interested and hyped.
Pacing, balancing and whatever narrative elements you might think of of fasciculated works ARE IRRELEVANT. Understand that this version only tries to maximize drawing quality. This is intended as a replacement of the original, so you would read it not necessarily a chapter per month but at whatever pace you'd like.

More over, you are being handed high quality manga FOR FREE and yet you are complaining. Not discussing plot, inconsistencies or any storywise elements, you are complaining over editorial planning. What's wrong with you?

@MangaA-Z I think @Lithe summed up my thoughts pretty well.

This version seems to have more in common with the series that the webcomic parodied. While it's still entertaining, the pacing is just far too slow. Bi-weekly updates are a good thing, but really, its arcs are really, really dragging. To a certain degree I feel like the webcomic spoils the punchlines, but even without comparing them it just has too much build up. If this were weekly it would be understandable for a tournament arc and rotating door enemies, but man, I feel it takes itself far too seriously recently. Maybe it's just me.

They shined well enough in the original and the quickness of the fights led to better jokes. In the end I think that it's devolving into ordinary action shit, but I suppose that opinion will mostly apply to people who have seen the original and know what to expect. Those who haven't still have the potential to enjoy the regular fights as they are now. It will also probably be better in the anime since the pacing will naturally be much faster.

As far as manga reading is concerned, I'd accept it a lot more if he bothered to put at least two different hero fights in each chapter as opposed to having one fight per hero split up into roughly 2 chapters each. As it is now it is simply too slow. I have a feeling I'd have this opinion even if I didn't read the original.

Regardless, I do enjoy looking at it even if I don't enjoy reading it.

@HerculeSSJ Don't worry it will pay off, I like this version x100 better than the webcomic. If it's only Saitama finishing everything in one punch, will be boring. Cause he is bored and just want to have a good fight. It's creates a sense of dullness, if he say this every time. Seeing how other heros specially S and A ranks suffer or are overwhelmed by the monsters, really shows how Saitama is overpowered. This not only show that how it can be so boring and repetitive for him, while we see other heros coming up with 10000 ways to defeat and be defeated by a monster, it's always 1 punch for Saitama.
One's reason for showing us and exposing other heros and keeping Saitama at the side is to show, how a fight that would be considered one of the best fights in other manga, is only 1 punch for Saitama. Correct me if I am wrong, I can go on and on how this version outdid the original webcomic

@Sancturil Seriously!?! What the hell ONE!! I thought that man absconded to the mountains after leaving a word.docx of all his ideas after cashing his paycheck. I'm all kinds of annoyed at this development. While I love the art the story has been a weekly shounen amount of plot threads in a sometimes monthly manga, making it so slow it's tragic. I also found the webcomic way funnier.

@HerculeSSJ Except that Murata isn't the one writing this new version, ONE is. That's why he hasn't been working on the webcomic. He's been writing the plot, dialogues, fight choreography and everything else of this Remastered One Punch Man manga.
Murata has only been doing the drawing, and he's been doing an amazing job at it.
All of the changes were decided by ONE himself.

Murata is really starting to grind my gears. At this point I feel like I'm going to have to wait for ONE's webcomic to get my Saitama fix.

Still waiting impatiently for The Pig God to get a bit.

@kurosa Yeah, I like these chapters. Sure I love Saitama and Genos, but I love the other heroes as well because of how well they are done.

@SandyBleach In the Web Comic heroes didn't get too much attention, so this chapters are to make them shine.
