Hey there! Today we will update you on One Punch Man Chapter 170 where we will tell you everything you need to know about the upcoming chapter such as its release date, spoilers, raw scans, and through where you can read the new chapter.
One Punch Man is a very popular hard-core superhero action manga which is an adaptation of the original webcomic by ONE (also drew Mob Psycho 100) and is drawn by Yusuke Murata of EyeShield 21. It features some of the most spectacular-looking fight scenes with very detailed art and character writing.
With the latest chapter, we have reached the end of Garou’s arc which spanned over 7 years. With his divine power from “God” fading away, Garou reels in shock and pain, wondering about a mysterious punch that hit him and believing it was powerful enough to put even Saitama to shame. As he looks around, Garou sees several heroes, notably the Tank Topper Army, surrounding him. Saitama and Genos discuss the core the former is holding.
Genos decides to plug the core to himself to verify its authenticity. Upon making a connection, the cyborg is overwhelmed by the core’s memories; having travelled through time with Saitama, the core displays pivotal moments to Genos, such as the heroes’ deaths due to the radiation emitted from Garou, his own demise at the latter’s hands and Saitama’s battle on Io.

Previous Chapter Recap
Genos gathers himself and asserts that the core is indeed his, but from another time. Genos asks Saitama if he could remember anything, believing that the core and he had both come from the future. Genos proceeds to explain the hypothetical belief regarding a possible parallel world or theoretical multiverse, surmising the core had possibly come from an alternate timeline due to Saitama’s actions.
He states that though it is unknown how the divergence into different times had happened, it can be confirmed that there was a new Saitama that separated from the original who has time travelled and now merged with the past Saitama in the current timeline. He notes that the timing of the separating and merging may be a clue to what point in time the two worlds have separated.
Genos goes on by stating that in the future that the core had arrived from, he was killed by Garou. Astounded by what he has learned from the core, Genos believes that no matter possible parallel worlds may exist, even in the worst possible scenario of his’ and many other heroes’ collective deaths, Saitama’s capability to transcend and manipulate the laws of causality, is inescapable proof of his selfless, flawless heroism.
As Genos tries to relay his theory to Saitama on how he could have possibly travelled through time, Saitama is overwhelmed by the long explanation and does not follow what the cyborg said at all, much less comprehend the scientific logistics Genos is explaining to him. Ultimately, Genos is pleased that in order to save everyone, Saitama transcended even time and space.
Walking away while holding Genos’ damaged upper body, Saitama audibly sighs, depressed about how they will have to look for what remains of their destroyed apartment after Genos will be repaired by Dr. Kuseno.
