Previous Chapter Recap
Despite encountering Garou in his mutated form, Tareo is not afraid and instead calls him a hero. Annoyed by Tareo, Garou again tries to explain to him he is not a hero but is denied by the boy, who tells him that he was saved by Garou four times. Tareo goes on by stating that Garou is the greatest hero in his eyes and telling him to stop pretending to be a monster. As Garou seems to be upset, Saitama shows up.
Like Tareo, he also states that Garou is pretending to be a monster and his “cosplay” looks intricate. While Saitama slowly walks to them, Garou tells Tareo to watch closely as he will show him how powerless the heroes are. Tareo attempts to stop him from fighting Saitama, stating that he will be acknowledged as a real monster if he hurts more heroes. When he is right in front of Garou, Saitama taunts him to attack him, making Garou punch him hard in the head, to Tareo’s shock.
Saitama, though, is completely unfazed by the punch and reassures Tareo that he will not get hurt. Garou immediately attempts another attack on Saitama but is slapped away. Tareo calls out Garou and is asked by the Caped Baldy if he wants him to stop Garou. Tareo responds with a nod to which Saitama then leaves and comes for the Hero Hunter.
