Kageyama Shigeo (a.k.a. “Mob”) is a 8th grader with psychic abilities. He could bend spoons and lift objects with his mind from a young age, but he slowly began to withhold from using his abilities in public due to the negative attention he kept receiving. Now, the only thing he wants is to become friends with a girl in his class, Tsubomi. With his psychic “mentor” (who has no psychic powers), he continues his daily life, attempting to realize his purpose in life. – My Anime List
Based on 5 review scores:
Mob Psycho 100 kicks off with a super-solid first episode as it quickly tries to sell both it’s visual style and humor. These elements are working pretty well for it so far, though the look of the latter might be enough to prevent it from enjoying the same level of mainstream success One-Punch Man did. Still this series seems to have a good grasp on what works for it, and if it can keep up the same level of energy as it’s premiere, then it shouldn’t have too much trouble finding it’s audience.
Reasons to Watch Mob Psycho 100:
-Intense fight scenes
Don’t Watch Mob Psycho 100 If:
-You hate uncompleted shows (but there is a guaranteed 2nd season)
-You hate rollercoaster shows that are too crazy and move too fast
-You’re a hipster that will automatically hate anything that is popular
Our introduction to Reigen and Mob is a fun one. The art is wild, and utilizes ONE’s original webcomic style and other media well to push through many of the episode’s gags. The stark contrast in Reigen and Mob’s personalities is great, especially since, like nearly everything in this episode, their reactions are taken to the extreme. Their relationship is going to be an interesting one.
