Meanwhile, he continues to assist his mentor Arataka Reigen and the office’s new recruit, Katsuya Serizawa, in solving paranormal cases of their clients. While continuing his duties, Mob also works on gaining more independence in his esper and human lives, as well as trying to integrate better with the people around him.
However, new supernatural and ordinary challenges test Mob’s emotional stability and force him to confront the realities around him. As he strives to continue forward on the path to maturity, Mob must resolve his emotional crises and reassess the naivety he has held on for so long.
I haven’t written a review for anything in YEARS but I recently got back into anime with this season because of this anime! I have loved every season of Mob thus far and this season isn’t any exception. The review format is also a lot different but I will comment on every part of the show like I used to!
Art & Sound
Bone is a fantastic anime studio who hasn’t disappointed me once with any of the seasons. The fluidity of the animation and the colors, just wow. Absolutely beautiful. The music? The Mob Choir creates such bops and I love the opening so much. The line “the one and only one” at the end of the OP is just touching with the overlaid animation.
Season 2 was much better with its story compared to season 1 and this season as well. I do feel as though it lacks that punch that the previous seasons had, but it’s not over yet! Episode 9 just came out and it seems like it’s about to go from 0-100 (haha pun intended) real quick. I wrote a review on season 1 when it finished airing in 2016, and I still stand by my point is that this isn’t a story driven series. This series is meant to be character driven. It’s all about Mob and his growth from young adolescence to young adulthood. And all those tidbits we all the “story” are just part of his journey to being a better version of himself.
Do you remember that scene in season 2 where Mob goes beyond the 100? That’s how much I’ll score the character scale. One of the biggest reasons I absolutely love this show is for the characters and to watch them interact with each other. The comedy isn’t for everyone but I laugh at least once an episode. I’ve also cried at a part in this season, but you’ll have to watch to find out why!
Mob is by far one of the best main characters I have watched in an anime in a long time. If you haven’t watched either of the 2 seasons in awhile before watching this one, then maybe you have forgotten just how much development we’ve witnessed. Or maybe you’ve never season the series and you’re wondering what all the fuss is about. The mere fact Mob starts out as some emotionally unbalanced teenager who’d fire up his psychic powers unintentionally, to witnessing such beautifully animated fights of him demonstrating the exact opposite is just a different type of beauty. You watch this loner boy, grow such a community around him. He really does change those he reaches.
The supporting cast engaging and encouraging this development makes everyone such a treat to see on screen. I just love every single character in his show and what they deliver for our main character. There’s so many fun moments of downtime, laughs, and just some even maybe ‘dull,’ moments. But there’s always a calm before the storm. It’s good writing that whenever there’s too much of a good time, there will be a terrible coming approaching. Mob Psycho 100 III does that with their characters.
I am so excited to see where the anime goes for the next last episodes! God, I will miss this series so much.
