One-Punch Man Wiki

"From Space..." (宇宙からの..., Sora kara no..., Tonari: 39 + 40 + 41) is the 32nd chapter of the One-Punch Man manga series.


Part 1[]

A large craft is seen flying over A-City, where it stops and proceeds to destroy the entire city. Sky King is then seen, dead, his body falling apart as a large creature with several heads and wings comments to itself on killing the Sky King, and the destruction caused by the ship. Iaian, a hero, then crawls out of the rubble and witnesses the state of destruction of A-City, the only thing left standing is the Hero Association's headquarters. He then notices the giant ship above him, but only looks for a second before the large monster appears behind him and attempts to crush his head. The monster only crushes his helmet, its occupant having moved safely away. Iaian comments on how there would be no way he would not notice the monsters killing intent and then proceeds to attack it.

Part 2[]

Sitch is screaming, and after seeing that A-City was destroyed in an instant, he is certain the "earth is in danger" prophecy had come true. Bang asks Sitch why the Hero Association building is still standing, to which he is answered with the fact that Metal Knight had built it, and that it is much stronger than an average shelter, Metal Bat then notes that because it is built like a bomb shelter, the place has no windows. The heroes are preparing to leave to deal the threat outside, and just as Genos is about to ask Saitama to join them, he notices that his master is not there and that a hole in the "impenetrable fortress" ceiling has been made, apparently all the way to its roof.

Saitama is then seen on the roof, preparing to deal with the threat in front of him, a giant spaceship. Saitama leaps towards the spaceship and is shot with a colossal-size bullet, which he is able to dodge, and is also relieved, due to the fact that if the weapon was a laser beam, it would've burned off his clothes. Saitama is then once more shot with gigantic bullets, but repels them and sends them back to their own ship.

Meanwhile, Iaian is still fighting the alien Melzargard, who appears invulnerable to his attacks. The alien then retaliates and demolishes the area behind Iaian, as well as his arm. The alien then proceeds to split himself, into 5 different forms.

The creature then proceeds to split itself into more individuals and proceed to attack Iaian, however, they are stopped by Atomic Samurai who shows concern for Iaian's injuries. The creature regenerates, and Atomic Samurai engages it in a fight. Once it seems that Atomic Samurai has gained the upper hand the individuals combine to form one single entity who seems to be excited at the prospect that someone can match them in power. Bang, Metal Bat and Puri-Puri Prisoner arrive to aid Atomic Samurai take on Melzargard.

S-Class heroes are then seen debating on how to deal with the flying ship, Superalloy Darkshine suggests King takes on the ship to which King replies that he is unable to do so, hearing this angers Tatsumaki who then decides to stop the ship by herself.

Saitama is then seen having already boarded the ship in an altercation with Groribas who is easily defeated in one punch before even given the chance to attack. He then decides to destroy the ship from the inside much to the dismay of Geryuganshoop who is shocked by the power Saitama possesses. Boros then appears and is then shocked after learning of Groribas' defeat.

As the S-Class heroes battle the monster, Melzargard was struck by Bang and decide to contact the ship to prepare the cannons. He creates a small flying head to contact the ship, but the head was struck by Metal Bat. Geryuganshoop then contacts Melzargard to inform him someone intruded into the ship.
