One Punch Man Chapter 188 recap


In One Punch Man chapter 188, we witnessed Atomic Samurai’s three disciples: Bushidrill, Iaian, and Okamaitachi, as they conducted a search for information about Sweet Mask. During Iaian’s last battle, he observed something peculiar within Sweet Mask – a beast trying to transform into a human with a compassionate heart. This discovery raised suspicions about Sweet Mask’s true intentions and identity.

Meanwhile, Atomic Samurai was featured in the chapter alongside Nichirin, Shido, and Yuta. He disclosed his newfound ambition to challenge King, the purported strongest man on Earth. Later, while enjoying a meal at a sushi restaurant with Bushidrill, Iaian, and Okamaitachi, Atomic Samurai encountered King and approached him for a conversation.


As for Saitama and Genos, they were seen on their way back home when they noticed Forte providing food for Overgrown Rover and Black Sperm. Due to their history, Black Sperm chose to conceal himself, fearing that Genos might recognize him and attack.

Genos requested Forte to vacate his room so that he could move in and stay close to Saitama. It seemed more like an order than a mere request, and this finally resolved Genos’s housing problem, allowing him to live next to his mentor.

What to Expect from One Punch Man Chapter 189?

In the upcoming One Punch Man chapter 189, it is anticipated that Atomic Samurai will create a test or challenge to assess King’s strength. However, it is unlikely that they will engage in a serious fight to avoid revealing King’s true abilities and blowing his cover. Instead, Atomic Samurai will attempt to reach an understanding with King.

Furthermore, in the same chapter, it is expected that Atomic Samurai’s three disciples: Bushidrill, Iaian, and Okamaitachi, will continue their investigation into Sweet Mask’s real identity and the reason behind his seemingly beast-like aura. Their quest to uncover the truth about Sweet Mask will likely progress further in this installment.
