One Punch Man Chapter 169: End of Garou Arc
The One Punch Man Chapter 169 has finally marked the end of the Garou Arc. The long-standing battle of Saitama and Garou has come to its end. It will be correct to say that it was quite an emtional end. The panel with Tario saving Garou brought tears to the eyes of the readers. However, the reunion of Genos and Saitama was also emotional. Saitama witnessed the same person alive that Garou killed. Garou put out the core of the Genos in front of the Saitama.
The rage of Saitama for losing Genos increased his power exponentially in the future timeline. Saitama put the second core of Genos in his brain. However, Genos experienced a barrage of memories in his brain as Saitama completed the process. Genos saw everything from his death to the time travel of Saitama. He witnessed the true power of Saitama, which erupted after his demise in the future timeline. The raw scans showed that Genos seems very proud of his ultimate Sensei. However, he has a lot of questions regarding the fight to ask Saitama.
Therefore, most of the part of the recent chapter was full of conversation. It was like the eruption of numerous memories in Genos’ brain that gave birth to an indefinite number of questions. However, Saitama felt very upset when he carried Genos’ torso up in the air while witnessing the sunset. It was the symbol of the fall of one of the finest arcs of the manga.
Will Garou Leave His Evil
Two stories were going on in parallel in the 169th chapter of the manga. The first one was the reunion of the lead characters. However, the second one was about the injured Garou from the past timeline. He did not know anything about the future happenings. Saitama just entered his timeline and knocked him out with his ultimate One Punch. The people gathered around Garou to beat the pulp out of his body. The S-class heroes had even rounded him to start his beating. But Tareo, in the current timeline, got a glimpse of Garou’s death from the future timeline. He rushed toward Garou immediately to save him from the wrath of the heroes.
He claimed to the heroes that Garou is not evil but a good person. Garou and other heroes then heard about the good deeds of Garou in the future from Saitama. Garou could not believe these things as he was still under the burden of his ego. But he did listen to all of Saitama’s talks and gave a serious expression to himself. So one hero out of the crowd popped out to give support to Garou. That’s why Garou gets the chance to live due to the request of Tario and his love for him. But Garou managed to escape the scene as the other heroes were arguing about sparing his life. However, it is still not clear if Garou will leave his evil side. He has heard the complete truth but has not accepted it yet, or it seems so.
