Saitama’s New Attack: Serious Sneeze
The plot picks off where the previous chapter left off, with Garou and Saitama battling on a Juptier’s moon, thanks to the number one hero, Blast, who immediately transported them away from Earth and saved the human race.
Garou appeared to be matching Saitama’s speed and power at the end of the previous chapter. As we saw in the final panel, it was thought that Saitama genuinely received some damage from Garou, but we now know that it was just a drawing effect that Murata used to embellish combat scenes.
Garou is being beaten up by Saitama, and he thinks to himself that Saitama’s new punch is stronger than his previous one, and he can’t use his copy ability because of this. Garou will die if he absorbs any more of these punches.

Saitama’s entire suit is damaged throughout the punches, and he is disappointed that he is getting a cold. That is when Saitama sneezes and destroys the entire planet Jupiter. Garou was lucky to have gotten out of the way of Saitama’s sneeze or he would have been destroyed. Murata has once again done outstanding work in capturing a destroying planet.
Garou’s Plan To Teleport Saitama To Sun
Garou realises at this time that he cannot overcome Saitama in a hand-to-hand fight. That’s when he saw the sun and decides to teleport Saitama into it.
Garou is able to transfer himself and Saitama near to the sun’s surface. He hurriedly opens another portal and flees the sun. Garou believes he has won the fight and begins joyously bouncing around. Moments later, he senses a presence behind him, and Garou immediately knows it as Saitama.

Garou is surprised as to how Saitama returned so swiftly. Saitama explains that he had a stomach ache from the cold and was holding it in, but he was stunned by the flash of light and a fart erupted out of him, giving him momentum to catch up to Garou.
Saitama seriously punches Garou back to earth after explaining how he returned. Saitama’s strike is so powerful that it breaks Cosmic Garou’s mask.
Saitama Time Travels In Past
Saitama comes to a halt after delivering a powerful punch. Garou questions him on why he isn’t killing him. Saitama says this as a hero and because it was the kid’s final request.
When Garou looks to his right, he discovers Tareo’s lifeless body. Garou flees, crying, to the side opposite Tareo’s body. He acknowledges that Tareo is in this situation because Cosmic Garou was emitting radiations that were harmful for Tareo.
Garou’s final request is for Saitama to mimic his move. Saitama decides to replicate Garou’s move, which causes a quantum reaction and allows Saitama to time travel back to when every hero was still alive on Earth and Garou had just landed.

Cosmic Garou turns to stone, most likely as a result of using all of his power. Before vanishing, he requests that Saitama beat his past self and save everyone. Saitama begins time travel and defeats Garou with One Punch before Garou can use his cosmic powers.
Garou And Everyone Are Alive
Because Saitama’s future self beat Garou before he could harm anyone, all the heroes and Genos who were about to die fighting Garou were saved. It was theorised in previous chapters that Genos might be dead for good.

Now, there are two Saitama on the planet, and because two self cannot dwell in the same universe, both Saitama become compelled to each other and combine.
