One-Punch Man: What Can We Learn About Tatsumaki and Fubuki’s Past?
In Chapter 180 of the One-Punch Man manga released digitally by Viz Media’s Shonen Jump, Tatsumaki’s intense fight against Saitama comes to a close as she faints due to the overuse of her powers. This triggers a flashback of her past with Blast, who encouraged Tatsumaki to use her abilities to help others. As a result, Tatsumaki attempted to protect her sister, revealing that they had been attacked by members of the evil psychic group in the past.
The encounter had a profound impact on Fubuki, who witnessed Tatsumaki easily defeat their attackers and, in turn, unlocked her own psychic abilities. Tatsumaki blames herself for Fubuki’s harsh path, as she feels responsible for setting her sister on that trajectory. Additionally, Tatsumaki feels lost without Blast’s guidance.
However, after her battle with Saitama, Tatsumaki seems to be slowly letting her guard down. Seeing someone with enough power to earn her respect has had a positive impact on her mindset.
