Previous Chapter Recap!
The title of One Punch Man Chapter 171 started exactly as the webcomic counterpart of it. The story saw that a few A-Clas heroes come to meet Saitama. However, they were immediately intimated by him, considering the power that he exempted back in the fight. But they could not meet with Saitama. Instead, King answered the door. The chapter then cuts to the Pig God finding many troubles in the Z-city. The fight was incredibly crafted by Murata here.
In the same fight, it was the Evil Natural Water who made sure that Air got injured. Thus, even the Pig God had to take a step down. In the final act of the chapter, even Black Sperm showed up to offer help. The chapter came to an end with the meeting between Saitama and Black Sperm. The latter was in shock, seeing that Saitama was nothing like how he had imagined him.
