How long until SERIOUS STRIKE in glorious Murata-HD?
¿Buscar con qué?
What's this from, his stream? If so, why the Spanish tab?
The usual place
Oh fuck. This chapter was pretty amazing.
Melzalgald looked pretty cool this chapter. Geluganshp too, surprisingly, despite how little detail his design has.
Can today get any better ?!?!
ONE version will always be superior.
Murata's version takes away from the story and is distracting, attracting the worst kind of readers
>Murata's version takes away from the story and is distracting
It's overdone and showy.
All everyone talks about is what gimmick Murata has put into the chapter this time and he can't even keep the fucking pace.
OPM is a simple comic with a simple punchline that gets built up to.
Murata attracts all these faggots who try and pass OPM has the greatest thing ever and are slowly ruining it.
You're one of those
>manga is always superior to anime adaptations
He's livestreaming presently.
>All everyone talks about is what gimmick Murata has put into the chapter this time and he can't even keep the fucking pace.
Er, were you here when ONE's chapters were translated? It's not that Murata's art distracts people from actual discussion. It's just that we've already discussed it all.
>It's overdone and showy.
Here, we have to talk about whether or not Murata's style suits the story. If it doesn't, that is to say, if it doesn't add anything to it, then it IS overdone and showy.
Art is a part of execution. The style does not give the same effect as ONE's, but that isn't to say it does not fit the story well. ONE's art emphasizes how silly the world of OPM really is and helps bring to the spotlight the pretentiousness of the other heroes. Murata's, however, glorifies the abilities of the other heroes instead and instead emphasizes Saitama's own "underwhelming" existence (that is, until he gets "serious"). The moods both art styles provide for the comic are different, but they each provide an excellent contrast between the ideas of 'superheroes' and 'grounded reality'.
>can't appreciate good art on the same story because 'x fanbase'
How about you start judging the material when you, you know, judge the material? Not somehow concluding it's guilty of being worse because the fans are? Because that's pretty fucking retarded.
If something is better drawn, even if it's the same thing it's obviously going to attract a wider audience. Doesn't make the whole 'simple comic simple punchline' thing any less valid because a retard was near you talking retarded shit about it.
Geluganshp was just a black octopus tentacle monster alien? I guess I should have expected that.
I just figured he was some weird formless creature, his form entirely fluid like a slime, but unlike a slime which is made of liquid his "body" was like a spacial anomaly. Like a dark energy being, or a warp creature or something. A piece of space come to life.
I also thought Gloryverse would be waaaaay bigger than he was.
>Not irrationally hating things out of spite for the sake of some vaguely defined fanbase or casuals
Welcome to /a/. What is this "judging something on its own merit" you speak of? The concept is entirely alien to us, and that means you must be a filthy cross boarder. Burn the witch! Kill the outsider!
What does the message at the end of the chapter say?
where are the raws!?
That the giant maze page was used with the creator's permission. I was made by Nomura K.
*It was made
I don't get it OP. All I see is chapter 32 version 4.
>ch 32 v4
I thought he did the Cyclops's armor right the first time. guess my taste is shit.
Ultimateking hasn't translated the new chapter yet.
Only the digital raw is out.
the fuck? Boris looked handsome as fuck in the first version. I haven't even SEEM v2 and 3. Why did Mur-ta have to redo this chapter four times?
He didn't redo it 4 times. He redid it once. The other 2 times, he added new pages.
He thought Boros looked too plain and boring, which I completely agree with. He looks much better now.
That was a great chapter. And he did fucking revisions to his old chapters too. Fucking Murata man.
What's it like being a faggot yourself?
Still, Boris was a solid 9/10 the first time. I was looking forward to him taking off the armor to fight Saimata. Now he's going to have some alien insertions my dick won't feel anything for. Crush ruined. Can't wait for this arc to end
He's still wearing just armor, I think. Going by the interior of the deeper parts of the spaceship, Murata seems to be going for a tech-organic image.
How is this even possible to draw shit like this in two weeks.
Murata borrowed the image
But it lacks soul.
Good, that mean Murata's still human and haven't turned into a monster.
Your point makes no sense to me.
Honestly, you're too vague. It lacks "soul"? Really now? Unbelievable. There's plenty of "soul" in the art. You can feel the effort put into it. It's dynamic and exciting to look at. The designs and imagery are thoughtfully done.
Shhh just let him be a hipster. He's clearly enjoying himself.
Garou arc when
Shit is gonna be maximum glorious
Years from now.
After Boros there's still a lot of Garou training arc before shit gets real.
I can't wait to see Murata draw Hobo Emperor.
It lacks personal touch, yes I agree, but he's definitely working on it.
What does that mean? The art style is rather distinctly Murata's.
For a lot of reasons, he's largely defined by his technical ability. Working on OPM has honestly been doing him a favour.
>Still, Boris was a solid 9/10 the first time.
Hardly. His armor was cool, though I dont' think it looked alien enough, and Boros himself had no much detail on the face, the eye looked too big and cartoony.
The new version is spectacular.
What does that even mean? His art is crisp, detailed and instantly recognizable.
That's too vague. You know, it's not hard to put actual effort in providing a rational reason.
Murata's style is "very personal" in my opinion. He's great at creating the illusion of motion in his drawings and he's got an excellent grasp on anatomy.
There, I did it. Easy.
He's a very great imitator. He knows how things are supposed to be.
As you say he is good at what he does, good at creating illusion, good at anatomy. But that is all technical. In a sense, very mechanical in my views. Lacking in these traits, it's hard to to point it out stylistically and that's something he has been improving on. He is in a sense discovering his own sense of style without all the magic acts.
>Yes, he's an excellent artist but I say he's bad because of some metaphysical bullshit I can't even specify
I never said he was bad. You could be the greatest person at anatomy and draw the very best, but that doesn't mean what you put out doesn't look like the shining glory of generic. Not to say that is necessarily the case. Is this really so difficult to understand?
What about his art style is generic?
He's technical, but I don't understand what that means in terms of him not having a personal style. His art is rather distinct and recognizable. Is that not what a personal style is? Something that be recognized as belonging to a person?
The way he shades. The way he draws the lines. The way he thickens or thins it depending on the feature or action. The little details that Murata makes that most artists would ignore or not put much effort to. There are lots of tics and personal touches to Murata's art.
those thighs man goddamn
It's like it's simply a product of the time. You raise the point of being unique, but all you seem to say is detail.
>Murata attracts all these faggots who try and pass OPM has the greatest thing ever and are slowly ruining it.
I see what you mean. Opm used to be a simplistic looking story with simple but fresh ideas on an overdone genre, but that is being completely overshadowed by murata's art into something that might look good but lost a lot of its "essence" that helped conveying ONE's message is what you're trying to say, right?
Not gonna touch that topic too much, but imo ONE's central point in all of his works is that "good storytelling and engaging characters" > "great art", so i could see how murata is turning that premise upside down in some people's eyes. There's no right or wrong in that, it's just people's preferences.
However, you gotta understand that most people are following murata's redraw literally only for his art (as much as I would agree that this is a stupid approach and not doing the manga justice), so criticizing said art would obviously get you a lot of hatred from their side.
God dammit Murata.
8 weeks for a single chapter.
welcome to the time of the giant meteor arc (though that time, people cursed even more)
Just in case no one else said it, you messed up the credits page, it still says 13th feb.
actually considering he JUST uploaded a new chapter, it's 6 weeks for a single chapter, since version4 of the previous chapter was updated almost at the same time as the newest chapter
What burns me is that there are people who only know of Murata's OPM, and don't even try to read the original webcomic after knowing it exists. I know one in real life.
She gushes over the art and thinks the story is interesting, and yet when I recommend the webcomic… nothing doing.
When's Nerieru fixing their main website?
The backup has limit exceeded problems.
Why not recommend Mob Psycho then?
to be fair, the only reason why we in the west ever even heard of OPM is due to Murata. Sometimes a good work, no matter the quality, needs a famous name to get some proper attention. Sure, from all the people who now know about One Punch Man 50% don't care about the webcomic, but the rest do, and that is a lot more than ever before.
Fucking kill yourself ya hipster twat.
Speaking as somebody who reads Murata's comic and not the original, it's not that I don't care about or dislike the original. I appreciate it for what it does, I just prefer the redraws and prefer to avoid spoilers.
I did. No joy there either.
I respect that, but the person I mentioned doesn't even try it. And this is someone who likes webcomics in general.
Have you tried out the webcomic instead of just looking at one or two pages? Almost everyone agrees who gave it a chance that it's style has it's own charm. If you did and still prefer Muratas version, thats fine, but you are missing out heh
I have a few "anime fan" normalfag friends.
We watched SnK together, and usually talk about recent popular manga releases when there's time.
It's hard to maintain the illusion of a lower power level sometimes, but it's better than trying to fix everyone's bad opinions.
>chill the fuck out man, it's okay
I read through one or two of the arcs, don't worry about that. I just like Murata's ake on it more. Also there were a few pages in the webcomic where I genuinely had trouble figuring out what was going on, though for the most part that wasn't an issue.
But that's not what makes Murata's art great. He's good in detail, yes, but what he does is he make his work extremely cinematic he uses dynamic angles and poses, the kind of shots normally seen in movies and not in manga.
You could say that being a webcomic is what hurt Murata's style, because of how it introduced digital editing to his work, and how Murata draws the webcomic like you're looking through a television screen, whereas the published manga version that he redraws would look something like pic related.
I'm really interested in how the actual printed tanks look like compared to the webcomic because it sells so well for something that's technically free online.
You're right about the pacing but fuck, calm down.
So now we wait for our glorious ultimateking?
didn't mess it up, by the time i uploaded the 41 v4, murata wasn't done with 42 yet.
my cleaner's still at work and won't be able to finish the cleans for another 8 hours, though i got the translation ready.
Oh I see, well then...back to sleep. Thanks for the hard work though!
i know mate, but we're out of money to afford a server that isn't free, so it's literally all we've got.
In the meantime, you can still use the chat, i might post the release there if our site remains down.
>not having friends
I don't think you need to be told to kill yourself, you were probably going to do it anyway
Where is this chapter?
Get the fuck out of /a/.
v4 is up on mega because mf was acting up, new chapter should be out in 8 hours.
