Episode 2, The Human Monster
We are introduced to Garou. He’s a human that has decided that he wants to side with the monsters. He defeats everyone, hero or villain, leaving only the President of the Hero Association to spread the word of his power. Meanwhile, Saitama is playing a Playstation Portable, as Genos does chores. Genos mentions how Saitama has slow risen in the hero rankings. Speed O Sound Sonic arrives to challenge Saitama.
Lady Hellish Blizzard shows up, while Genos and Sonic battle elsewhere. She wants Saitama to join her faction. When he refuses she orders her men to attack him. Of course this results in their quick defeat. Blizzard attacks Saitama with her psychic powers, while her powers are impressive it ultimately does nothing. Saitama questions why she’s a hero. Basically, she acts like a gang leader, trying to undermine other heroes. Saitama becomes distracted by the fight between Sonic and Genos.
Sonic calls Genos “slow” suggesting that he could never touch him. Genos speeds up, managing to cut the ponytail of Sonic. Genos plans to use a massive explosion to counter Sonic as he gets faster. However, Saitama stops him due to the potential that it will blow up his apartment. Saitama fights Sonic, defeating him with his “Killer Move: Serious Series Sideways Jumps (by doing side jumping really fast).” He knocks Sonic out cold.
Blizzard talks about how she can’t get any higher than Class A Rank 1 because heroes like, Class A Rank 4, Bushi Drill, Class A Rank 3, Okama Itachi and Class A Rank 2, Iaian. All three are disciples of S Class hero Atomic Samurai. The reason that Blizzard and the three Class A swordsmen can’t progress further is that Handsome Kame Amai Mask is ranked 1. The politics of the hero profession is starting to seem more interesting than I thought. Hopefully, we are going to get to see more of the other heroes.
