Rumors and recommendations of a certain new anime is circling the social media this past week, we checked it out and voila! Saitama? Oh no, it’s not him. But I was pretty sure those eyes are very familiar, maybe they are related to each other. Which anime am I talking about? If you haven’t seen the latest anime released in July, you don’t know what you were missing out.
I’m talking about, MOB PSYCHO 100. Started airing last July 12, 2016, MOB PSYCHO 100 is already gaining fans all over the world and haters too ( they keep comparing the poor child to the powerful Saitama of One Punch Man). From the creator of the best animes you know, BONES Studio will once again give us the wow factor for their latest anime MOB PSYCHO 100.
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.
He suppresses his emotions to keep his power in control; when the percentage of his accumulated feelings reaches 100, he will “explode.” Yes, literally explode! You would definitely not want to mess with this kid.
This action, comedy and supernatural anime was always compared to the ever great One Punch Man, I guess for being a look-a-like or a child version, Mob’s facial expression is totally the same as Saitama. But also for the tremendous capacity he is capable of which was said to be only seen in the ???% mode. So if Saitama and Mob gets a one on one battle, I guess the world is destroyed even before we know who wins?
