Hey there! Today we will update you on One Punch Man Chapter 167 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.
We are now nearing the end of the long-awaited showdown between the Human Monster Garou and Saitama.
In the latest chapter, Garou who has attained all the cosmic knowledge threatens every standing hero there. Due to radiation emitting from his body, some heroes start losing their hair, some start bleeding and some faint. Blast tries to confront him by using his gravity moves but fails to even leave a scratch on him. Genos also steps into the battle only to have his body turned to pieces. Seeing Saitama emerging from the smoke, Garou throws a sphere towards him. The sphere was Genos’s core which pisses off Saitama the most we have seen in the series so far. Saitama then tries to attack him with a series of serious punches and Garou turns into Saitama persona. Blast fears the two fist colliding might result in the destruction of Earth.

Previous Chapter Recap
Bang confronts Garou and reasons that his former student is harbouring something evil inside, demanding to return him. Garou claims that he is acting under his own will but the two are interrupted by the sudden appearance of Blast, emerging from a portal. Blast skips the pleasantries and tells Garou he is being controlled by “God”, to the shock of the two; the hero warns him that any released attack will endanger the lives of all living things on the planet. When Garou doesn’t respond, Blast shows him the effects of his actions.
Nearly every hero present has now lost consciousness from the cosmic radiation he emits. Blast surmises that Garou is still retaining his humanity and is not completely enslaved by God’s will, hoping that he can be reasoned with to avoid conflict. His hopes are quickly shut down by Garou’s laughter, finding enjoyment that his “divine power” is killing people by being near him. Garou proclaims he is the miserable future of the human race, “Disaster Level: God”. Left with no choice, Blast orders Bang to stand down; the aged hero declares that Garou will have to kill him if he wants to accomplish his evil deeds.
Manako sees her chance to escape with the heroes now downed, only to bleed from the radiation as well and collapse. With her remaining strength, she looks up and sees Tareo, alone and unconscious.
