Murata recently updated the upcoming chapter’s release date via his Twitter account. Moreover, the new chapter will also mark the beginning of an exciting arc featuring Neo Heroes. So, what date will Chapter 171 of One Punch Man be released?

Following the manga’s release in the Japanese language, the English-translated version will be released shortly. So, if the author releases the chapter around midnight, several international fans will get the chapter on September 21, 2022, because of the time difference.

What happened in One Punch Man Monster Association arc?
One Punch Man Monster Association arc was one of the finest arcs created by the author. After Garou discovers that he possesses God-like powers, he intends to become a monster, laying the foundation for some intense fights between Bang-Garou, and Saitama-Orochi.
Garou’s evil side killed Tareo, who was the one person Garou cared about. So, after losing him, Garou became hopeless and asked for help from Saitama. The Monster Association arc also showed Garou teaching Saitama to time travel. Going on a path of redemption, Garou also sacrifices his powers.
Saitama manages to reverse the time and rectify all the wrongdoings of Garou, leaving him with Bang, who now has to look after him.
