Series Review: ★★★★★
What a legendary series. I’m so happy with this. This is the manga of The Best Anime Ever Created and I’m happy to say it lives up to the hype. It’s maybe not quite as enjoyable as the anime--since it’s lacking the beautiful animation and colours, and some of the gags are funnier in the anime with the incorporation of movement, angles, and better comedic timing--but it’s still definitely up there.

Mob Psycho 100 is about a middle school aged deadpan psychic named Shigeo (

It was my first time reading a manga so I had no expectations whatsoever.

THE WORLD: It's a fantasy world where there are spirits out in the world that torment people until they are able to go "to the other side". In order to deal with these spirits there are people with super powers called "Psychics" who use their powers to defeat the spirits and make them go away. The story takes place in modern Japan.

CHARACTERS: The main character is Shigeo Kageyama alias "Mob", a High School student who works

This might be one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever read... and I enjoyed it quite a bit.
With it’s humor (including a few easter eggs to this creator’s more widely known One Punch Man series) and simple yet works-for-the-story type art I definitely liked it.
The story however... not bad but at the same time it’s kinda stupid if I’m being blunt and I don’t really know if I could recommend this to many people. If

This has such an interesting story but the art is literally the worst I have ever seen in published manga.

ONE is really good at coming up with stories. He came up with this fabulous and famous story and also One Punch Man, which is even more famous. This story is so crazy but it can be passed by as unremarkable. The pacing was a little all over the place but it worked out in the end. The story kept my interest and I’m totally going to continue reading this.

Haha, this was as funny as I had hoped it would be. I loved the anime, and I am glad the manga is just as fun (and it seems the anime did a fantastic job on following the manga). Thanks Carlsen for licensing this volume and bringing it out in the world!

Say hello to Mob, or Shigeo. A psychic/esper with a giant power lurking inside of him. Watch out if he reach 100% and shows some real emotion, no one can stop him then! Yep, normally Mob keeps away from showing emotions and whi
I started reading Mob Psycho 100 after reading the first ten volumes of One Punch Man. An artist I follow on Tumblr has been drawing fanart for this manga for a while and that got me a little curious before I even watched the OPM anime.

Despite knowing how fabulous the story and characters in OPM are, I went through the first chapter tentatively. After that, I suddenly found myself at the end of the volume and hooked.

Mob Psycho 100, ONE (2016) (I absolutely adore One Punch Man, anime, manga, and webcomic). “No there isn’t! He can even become God!”, Ekubo: Mob Psycho 100’s comprehensive approach to its characters, primarily Mob (Kageyama Shigeo), Reigen Arataka, Kageyama Ritsu, Ekubo, and Hanazawa Teruki, pries away the cliché tint of similar deliveries. Several characters’ motivational drives and energies are unveiled at first through subtle foreshadowing then through overt expository dialogue or action, res ...more

When an awful con artist "medium" comes across real supernatural phenomena he exploits the telekinetic powers of his stupid, oblivious and emotionally stunted apprentice to fight them. Like One's One-Punch Man, Vol. 1, I find the story and art too crude and heavy-handed to enjoy. Strong pass on reading more volumes. ...more

I feel mixed about this first volume. There are some parts that work, and others that seem to get bogged down with immobility and repetition. Not sure I’ll continue with this series. We’ll see...
I feel like an asshole slapping this manga with a "bildungsroman" tag in lieu of a more general "coming-of-age" tag. I guess I can pretend "graphic novels" count enough for the "-roman" bit, but then I must ask myself how much does Mob Psycho 100 really focus on Mob's growing up versus simply comedy and psychokinetic action, and at the end of the day it's not truly important to me what I tag this manga. Like, why didn't I tag any Dragon Ball as "bildungsroman"? Eh, who cares....

This was a good intro into the story. Good action, great humour and an element of horror/mystery. I feel like thr story lacked a little depth but that may have been due to the first volume.

Unique story. Typical manga style of art and text.
It's not bad, I can see how it would get as popular as it is, but it doesn't quite work for me. The art style is a bit too off-putting for my taste, and the story is a bit too cynical. I'm still glad to have tried it.

From the creator of One Punch Man comes a new series. Mob Psycho 100 tells the story of a boy named Shigeo Kageyama or Mob as people often call him. Mob is a very shy middle-schooler who also happens to be an esper. (or a telepath, psychic whatever you call it) Even though Mob is extremely powerful he does not use his powers on humans because he is afraid to hurt them. Instead, he helps a man named Arataka Reigen get rid of ghosts. Mob cannot express his feelings so they all stay inside him unti ...more
Mob is a super powered kid that keeps getting roped into weird scenarios because he's special. He is taken advantage of on multiple occasions (by con artists and schoolmates alike) but the only thing he really seems to want out of life is for his crush to notice him. Precious pure-hearted boy.

First off, the story is meant to be a gag manga so most of it is meant to be taken as one big joke; I get that. But overall, it doesn't live up to the hype for least not yet. Part of that could be t

I read this since the author of One Punch Man wrote it.
Wasn't as good as expected.
So, the art isn't anything good... Honestly it's almost always bad, which just goes to show that as long as a story is good the art doesn't matter... Well, maybe not completely...
Anyways, it's about an eighth grader named Mob, who is a psychic, and is being used by everyone around him.
Much like Saitama, he has no feelings. (The facial expressions are pretty much the same.) And also like Saitama, he's really power

I was slow to pick up on this series, because ... well, "Mob Psycho" -- obviously this is going to be a bleak, noir, violent story about a crime-cartel sociopathic killer, right? Right? --Not at all! "Mob" is the nickname of middle-school student Shigeo Kageyama (although hardly anybody actually calls him that); he has psychic and psychokinetic powers -- he can see and exorcise ghosts and spirits as well as manipulate physical objects; and the "100" in the title refers to a vaguely-defined scale ...more

Arataka Reigen is a psychic for hire, taking on people’s supernatural problems for a fee. And quite reasonable fees at that! In reality, of course, most people’s supernatural problems aren’t supernatural at all. Con artist Reigen uses his fast tongue and improvisational skills to deal with their mundane issues while making it seem like he’s being a spirit medium. But when real paranormal menaces appear, Reigen calls on his apprentice Mob, the actual protagonist of the series!

This manga is a late

Reigen Arataka, greatest psychic of the 21st century and new star of the paranormal world, is a complete fraud. His apprentice, Mob, however, is the real deal. Mob is reserved, uncoordinated, socially awkward, and bad in school- as far as most people are concerned, he's just another face in a "mob" of people. But what others see as a complete lack of emotion couldn't be further from the truth: Mob's emotions and psychic powers are so powerful that he keeps them locked down at all times. Although ...more

I read One-Punch Man, Vol. 1 by ONE and I really enjoyed it. Like, immediately binged as much of the series as I could get my hands on and am still currently invested it in. - When I was given a copy of this book (thank you Alisha) I was optimistic as I had a lot of faith in the author... I have mixed feelings at this point.

The art was the supreme disappointment in this book. Yusuke Murata absolutely ruined me for reading a manga like this. The standard set i

His name is Shigeo Kageyama, commonly known as "Mob." He is Arataka Reigen's disciple and a true super human.

I don't know how or even if Dark Horse manga has an age rating for their books but with a certain amount of violence I'd guess this book is rated Teen. I would also like to note that the artwork in this series is more like One's original web based art style and not the cleaner style of the present One Punch Man manga so you might want to look at he art style to decide if it affects your
Leaving this one unrated as I carry on with the series; depending on how it develops, I'll see if I come back and add a rating.

First: I dig how unapologetically bad the art style is. If you're picky about art styles and want something near pristine, you won't like this, at all. I like how cynical the characters are and that Mob's actions and decisions aren't strictly what you would expect from a character in his position. He's already in possession of a large amount of power, and rather than sp

It's so interesting to read this after watching the show. It doesn't really get out of OPM's shadow until the Teru fight, but it's even more obvious here that ONE still isn't quite sure where he wants to take the story yet. The fact that Mob is called a super-human instead of a psychic is especially intriguing, given that one of the main themes of the story is that he is no more special or super than anyone else.

While it's clear that this series is yet to grow into it's shell, it's still a deli

Shiego, also known as Mob because of his blandness, is a junior high student with some serious psychic powers. He is employed by his mentor, Reigen, who doesn't have an ounce of power, yet runs an exorcism business. Mob gets to do all the heavy lifting, while Reigen convinces his customers that they are not only possessed, but that he is the only one able to exorcise their demons and cure them.

Mob Pscyho 100. Where do I begin with this masterpiece? Let's start with the most blaring thing you'll notice when you pick this up for a read, the art. As usual with One's work, the art is subpar at best, if you're reading this manga for the art. Don't bother.

Where the manga lacks in arts department, but oh boy, did it hit the chord with other aspects.

The central theme of this manga is emotion. The protagonist Mob is most powerful psychic in the world, due to losing control of himself in rage,
