One Punch Man is a popular superheroic hard-core action manga based on the original webcomic by ONE (who also drew Mob Psycho 100) and is illustrated by Yusuke Murata of EyeShield 21. It contains some of the most spectacular fight scenes, as well as very detailed character illustrations and writing.
In the final chapter, we see Saitama at his most raw and serious. Bang opens a dimensional breach just before Garou and Saitama’s fists collide in order to divert the massive energy to another space and save the planet. Bang accomplishes this with the help of his allies from other dimensions, but due to the recoil of their attack, they end up on one of Jupiter’s moons.
Garou is taken aback by his surroundings and asks Satama if they should try to find a way back to Earth. However, the latter is so irritated by the monster opposite ripping his disciple’s heart from his body that he simply replies, “it can come after I beat you to the bone.” The two begin fighting once more, nearly destroying the moon’s crust.
One Punch Chapter 168 Release Date and Time
ONE and Yusuke Murata’s One Punch Man manga is published weekly on Wednesdays in Shueisha’s Tonori no Young magazine. The OPM manga, on the other hand, has a very unusual release schedule, and the author is free to release the chapter whenever he wants. New chapters are usually released every other Wednesday. Since Chapter 167 was released on July 6, One Punch Man Chapter 168 will be released at 12:00 PM on either Saturday, July 20, 2022 or Saturday, July 3, 2022. (JST). The chapter’s title has yet to be revealed.
Update: We are two days away from the chapter’s release, and it appears that Murata-Sensei is working hard to deliver one of the best chapters yet. According to his most recent tweets, the chapter may even be longer than 70 pages.
However, keep in mind that the English translations will take some time to complete because the translation process involves complex steps not seen in manga, such as recutting, typesetting, proofreading, and, of course, translating the text.
- Pacific Time: Wednesday at 9 a.m.
- Central time: Wednesday at 11 a.m.
- Eastern Time: 12 p.m. Wednesday
- UK time: 5pm Wednesday
Is One Punch On on hiatus this week?
No, the manga is not taking a break this month, and Chapter 168 will be released on time. For the time being, no delay has been announced by the author.
Summary of the previous chapter
Garou and Saitama land on Io, Jupiter’s closest moon in orbit; while Garou recovers from the shock of landing on a moon, Satama seizes the opportunity, believing he can now go all out. He tries to fit Genos’ core into his suit but decides to save it in case the suit rips. When Garou tries to explain to Satama that they must find a way to return to Earth, the hero cuts him off and says, “it can come after I beat your ass up,” directly challenging the monster. Garou, taken aback by his seriousness, opens a portal beneath Saitama.
Saitama quickly pushes the portal away from his feet and punches Garou, knocking him out. He opens another portal to punch the hero, but Saitama grabs the edge of it and knocks it down, exposing Garou to another punch and knocking him back to the surface. Saitama makes fun of his “little tricks” and instructs Garou to use his fists. The cosmic monster responds that “his fists” are the techniques of numerous schools used as one.
Garou speeds through the portals he has opened to surround Saitama for an attack and bombards him with his techniques. He employs Roaring Aura Sky Ripping Fist, Water Stream Rock Smashing Fist, Exploding Heart Release Fist, and Whirlwind Iron Cutting Fist, pounding the hero mercilessly. Garou’s assault concludes with Nuclear Fission Gravity Knuckle, resulting in a massive explosion that decimates Io.
Where to read One Punch Man Chapter 168?
The final chapter can be read in two ways. The first step is to read the fan translations, which will be available within a day or two of the Japanese release.
The second option is to read the official Viz translations on their website. The Viz translations, on the other hand, are three chapters behind, so you’ll have to wait 2-4 weeks for the official translations of chapter 159.
