Previous Chapter Recap
Saitama is happy he has found the remains of his destroyed apartment and hoists the entire building up. Black Sperm hides in sheer terror; as a monster of incredible speed and having witnessed it was indeed Saitama who defeated an Awakened Garou in a single punch, he realizes the bald hero is the last person he wants to encounter.
Genos spots something, which worries Black Sperm; the cyborg picks up Overgrown Rover, now much smaller and more calm, to Saitama’s surprise, having forgotten he had fought Rover. Black Sperm is shocked again to see another of his fellow executive, though he notices the dog-like monster now so much smaller and weaker. As he reasons it would be wiser to run away, unwilling to face eithr Saitama and Genos, he notices Saitama treating Rover like an ordinary dog. Saitama reveals to Genos he had always had an affinity to dogs, as Rover licks his face.
Before Genos can worry about the feeding costs of Rover, he receives a message from the Hero Association and leaves. Believing there is no safer place than under the protection of an extremely powerful being, Black Sperm makes up his mind and swallows his pride. He leaps out from hiding and jumps around while making funny noises, to Saitama’s confusion.
