Nope, not me for. I found the art style completely off-putting, the characters annoying and the humour to be almost entirely lacking in humour.

Just when I thought that there would not be an anime capable of competing with Tales of Zestiria in regards to animation, here comes Mob Psycho 100, which probably has my favorite use of animation from this year. Ufotable may be the masters of CG used with traditional 2D animation, but what Bones did with this series is on the same level as Madhouse with One Punch Man. I guess every animator in Japan loves ONE and his works because all the action scenes were incredible to watch. Seriously this show is worth watching just for the animation.

As for the characters, the only two wothy of mention are obviously Mob and Reigen. I have mixed feelings for Reigen, I mean he's really funny when he's scamming his clients, but I didn't like the way he treated Mob, I mean it's the most natural thing for his character but it still felt bad for me. As for Mob, he was alright, he still doesn't have the charisma of Saitama, although I like the fact that even though he doesn't show a lot of emotion he still has a very likeable personality and is not an emotionless zombie like Katsuhira in Kiznaiver.

This was my second most hyped show for the show and I loved every second of this episode. I can't wait to see where it goes, and if nothing goes wrong this could become my favorite comedy of the year. But I still have to get used to seeing the face of Saitama in every character

Butt chin kid from One Punch Man grew up and became Quagmire.

Episode 1: Self-Proclaimed Psychic: Reigen Arataka ~And Mob~

I wasn't feeling it, but hey it's only the first episode plenty of room for improvement. Animation is very unique, for a reason I felt like I was watching Beavis and Butthead or King of the hill with the animation they used.

It works though, the opening sequence was pretty hype so hoping to see more of that and the comedy is over the top that it makes the animation outrageous. Not really a fan of Reigen though.

Coming from the guy that did OPM he must really like nonchalant overpowered MCs. But I hope Reigen becomes somewhat useful. I mean we all know Genos was a kind of useless but he looked badass doing it. Reigen does not.

We'll see how this plays for the next episode.

I think I just watched Ed, Edd, and Eddy combined with Yu Yu Hakusho...

Reigen amuses me. Got that same barely competent conman thing going on as Eddy. Curious how long it'll take Mob to catch on since he isn't as dumb as Ed or as much of a push over as Double D.

Going by the beginning, Mob's meltdown will be spectacular.

I really, really liked the art style. Not the simple One drawing style I mean the over-the-top crazy production Bones is giving it. It's really distinctive, vibrant and colorful.

I hope Reigen gets busted soon because the con man schtick is already getting old after the first episode.

I hope the people who complain about the character designs hate hate hate hate Shin Chan or art styles even less appealing than that. Otherwise I call hypocrisy.

Never heard of this before and I just randomly gave episode 1 a watch. Very entertaining! I will add to my watchlist.

Well, that's how it starts out. Not counting the paranormal stuff the show/webcomic is kinda slice of life-ish. This comic is a slow burn with a lot of stand alone stories. But the cases with Mob and Reigen will escalate as things go on, but 12 episodes probably won't be enough to get the more engaging arcs and Mob's gradual (and I mean gradual) development and independence from Reigen.

Ok -- so I didn't like it. That out of the way, something bothers me regarding the logic of the world:

Mob has the ability to sense powerful presences -- if Reigen is really a fraud Mob would know this without question. So the only logical conclusion is Reigen is really powerful and just doesn't know it... perhaps repressed due to some traumatic event.

Really powerful spiritual presences. Reigen is not a spirit.

Oh I think Mob knows. He just want Reigen to have all the credit so Mob can have a normal-ish life.


and there that 100% Mob goes nuke thing.
