One-Punch Man vol 6 by ONE
The Class S heroes are all summoned to an emergency meeting to discuss the latest threat to Earth. Since Genos is Class S, Saitama decides to tag along and see how he may help. The Hero Association has a Seer, and her last prophecy before dying of shock was, "Earth... DANGER!" She's never used the word Danger to describe a threat before, so this must be truly awful! What's worse, the threat descends on a humungous ship from outer space just as the hero meeting is wrapping up, and decimates City A! Saitama immediately boards the ship and starts pounding on every life form he can find. The Class S heroes begin to engage with an alien on the ground who is confounding all of their individual powers. It is only together that they have a hope of beating back this extra-terrestrial threat!
We finally get to meet the whole line-up of the strongest heroes in the Hero Association, and some of them are very entertaining.
My personal favorite is Rank #2, Tornado Terror. She's a tiny esper who has extremely powerful psychic abilities. Tornado is (rightly) cocky, and comes in to save all the helpless "boys" after they've been battling the alien for quite some time. She's super sassy, like me!
This volume is full of fun moments and more signature ONE sarcasm and humor. The stakes get bigger and bigger in each volume of One-Punch Man, so I'm not sure where else they are going to go, knowing there are 20-something volumes in this series!
There is some suggested nudity in this volume because Puri-Puri is involved again, and that guy never seems to be able to keep his clothes on, but once again, the naughty bits are covered cleverly with debris and other things.
