Manga / Mob Psycho 100
Mob Psycho 100
is a Japanese webcomic created by ONE, the same author responsible for One-Punch Man
. It began publication on Weekly Shōnen Sunday Web Comics on April 18, 2012.
Kageyama Shigeo, nicknamed "Mob", is a 14 year old boy attending his second year at Salt Middle School. There, he tries to lead an average, ordinary life, despite having been born with strong telekinetic powers. As he undergoes the turmoil of adolescence, he finds his emotionally-fueled powers increasingly hard to suppress. Mob wants to live just like others, but a barrage of trouble comes to him. With the suppressed emotions growing inside Mob little by little, his power threatens to spill over its bounds.
On December 1, 2015, an anime adaption by Studio Bones
was announced for release in 2016.
- Badass Normal: Reigen Arataka regularly goes up against evil spirits and powerful espers with no fear, and even wins a good portion of the time, despite not having any powers of his own.
- Berserk Button: Do what you will to Mob, but do not hurt his family.
- Psychic Powers: In terms of power, the story generally focuses on Espers, who have strong psychic abilities.
- They Call Me Mister Tibbs: Mob tells an evil spirit that's being overly-familiar to call him "Shigeo", not "Shige-Chan".
- The Verse: ONE has implied this and One-Punch Man share a verse (He was asked and answered a question on who would win between Mob and Tatsumaki from said series).
