One Punch Man Chapter 170: Quick Recap!
The title of One Punch Man Chapter 170 was “What Was Gained.” The chapter begins with Garou ending up at the police station following the events of the fight. Even yet, he insisted on becoming a monster. But Bang kept striking him for being a disobedient disciple. Later, Tareo and his friends are seen playing at the park. They were still talking about what happened in the previous fight.
The chapter’s last act takes us to the Hero Association Headquarters, where Sitch is seen conversing with Sekigar. This was a light discussion between them all. But then Bang asked them what kind of women Garou preferred. Overgrown Rover noticed Saitama and Genos digging on dead sand in the chapter’s final panel.
One Punch Man Chapter 171: One Month Break!
Murata took to Twitter shortly after the release of the 170th chapter to announce that he would be taking a break from work before resuming the manga with One Punch Man Chapter 171. As the Monster Association act comes to a conclusion, he insists on working on the manga’s next arc. The NeboKuro Twitter account was then bombarded with inquiries about the manga’s return date.

How Long Will The Break Last?
Given the news of the hiatus, One Punch Man Chapter 171 must return in the second week of September. However, internal publishing firm sources tell us that the text will not be returned until October. Even in the past, chapter 150 did not return after the hiatus. Murata is a quality-driven artist, which adds to this. When given the possibility, he devotes additional time to his task in order to deliver the highest quality. So, even for the following arc, fans may rest assured that the text will not be released until September. But there’s no need to be concerned.
What Will Be The Next Arc?
After this series, the next action that will occur with One Punch Man Chapter 171 is the Neo Heroes Saga, which begins with the Psychic Sisters Arc. According to the web novel’s synopsis, this act occurs immediately following the events of the fight between Garou and Saitama. Three of the A-Class heroes, Forte, Butterfly DX, and Chain’n’toad, discovered that Saitama is now living near them.
But when they get to meet with him, all they find is King. As a result, people are intimidated by his presence. Saitama is now ranked 39 in the A-Class class. As a result, Black Sperm and Overgrowth Rover have joined the team. The rest of the Psychic Sisters Arc is centred on the titular villains. Furthermore, Saitama’s evolution as an A-Class fighter is evaluated here!
