Mob Psycho 100 tells the story of a youngster known as Mob, who is a psychic. Known by his nickname “Mob” because he is socially inept and aloof, Shigeo Kageyama is actually Shigeo Kageyama. However, he is actually an extremely powerful psychic, or an esper—a person who is able to harness the power of the mind’s unfathomable faculties. And he’s been mentored by the self-professed psychic Reigen Arakata, who’s in the business of banishing demons. Mob does most of the exorcism work because Reigen lacks the ability to do it alone!
As a result of its unique style and storyline, this anime is a must-see. In addition, this anime relies on the popularity of a show called One Punch Man, which was created by the same person. Mob Psycho 100, on the other hand, appears to be keeping up with the anticipation! Moreover, this is a good excuse to recommend more anime like Mob Psycho 100!
So, here we go! The following shows are the most comparable to this one, and you may notice a startling resemblance. It’s right there in front of me! Anime fans, you’ve got a long road ahead of you. You may just sit back and enjoy the show for the time being!
1. Saiki Kusuo no Psi-nan (The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.)
There appears to be an uptick in shows featuring psychics and other paranormal trinkets. As a matter of fact, Mob Psycho 100’s season of release is accompanied by another show that features a psychic. So if Mob Psycho 100 has Kageyama Shigeo (also known as Mob), then Saiki Kusuo no Psi-nan has Kageyama Shigeo as well!
The humorous daily existence of psychic Saiki Kusuo is chronicled in Saiki Kusuo no Psi-nan. Saiki has been able to perform feats that most people his age would find impossible from the day he was born. He has a wide range of psychic abilities, including telekinesis, telepathy, pyrokinesis, levitation, and teleportation. Saiki, on the other hand, finds being a psychic with a slew of skills to be an exaggeration. Despite this, Saiki attempts to lead the most routine life possible. All he ever wants is a routine, everyday existence.
2. Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo? (The Problem Children Are Coming from Another World, Aren’t They?)
A show with overpowering protagonists may be of interest to you. If you’re looking for another program with overpowered protagonists, go no further than Mob, who appears to be overpowered as a psychic in his own show. No, the problem children aren’t from another world, are they? (a.k.a. The Problem Children Are From Another World, Aren’t They?)
Community’s fate in Little Garden is decided by the results of the games they participate in. As a result, winning is essential for every society. Then there is the case of a society whose very name has been stripped from it, which is facing annihilation. However, three children from another world are on their way to save the day. There is an issue with the three powerful children! Problem children, that’s what they are. Whenever and wherever they feel like it, these people just do what they want. Because of these fresh hopes, the “No Name” community begins anew.
3. One Punch Man
I don’t even have to explain myself for this one. After all, the author of both One Punch Man and Mob Psycho 100 may be found in common! That explains their striking resemblance! Amazing power, bizarre visuals—even Psychic Mob and Hero Saitama seem same! What more can you ask for? Because they’re both the work of the same person, you can expect them to look strikingly identical.
Hero Saitama’s one-punch antics are the focus of One Punch Man. Saitama is a hero for the sake of having fun! With a single strike, every villain is knocked out! Saitama, on the other hand, is only a hero for the sake of being a hero. He is not recognized as a hero by the government.
In order to become a real hero, Saitama completes the hero licensing and rating process of the hero organization, as he knows that defeating enemies isn’t enough. So, what’s the deal with Saitama’s seemingly limitless power? Every day for three years, until your hair falls out, perform 100 pushups, 100 situps, 100 squats, and a 10-kilometer run.
4. Sousei no Onmyouji (Twin Star Exorcists)
Battles against wicked supernatural elements are intriguing in and of themselves. The only thing better than incredible skills and abilities to annihilate evil in the world is the ability to use them. However, there is a cost! It’s a given that with tremendous power comes great responsibility! You asked for power, so use it to fight back against the evil that attempts to snatch away at your tranquility!
Exorcist Rokuro Enmadou is one of those. Isn’t he the same? “Twin Star Exorcists” is a title granted to two very powerful exorcists who are destined to marry and have a child who will become the most powerful exorcist of all time!
Do you think it’s all a scam? The absurdity of it all is not lost on even Rokuro and Benio. It’s not like Rokuro ever wanted to be an exorcist to begin with! Benio, on the other hand, aspires to strength, but she and Rokuro do not get along. The “Twin Star Exorcists”—Rokuro and Benio—are destined to help rid the Earth of its pollutants!
5. Elfen Lied
This time, we’re going to take things to a terrifying new level with the psychics! The employment of sophisticated mind powers to slay and annihilate is a source of terror, dread, and anxiety. For the diclonius, the blame falls squarely on them. Don’t get too close! Again, if you happen to come across one, DO NOT APPROACH!
Humans known as “Diclonius” are subjected to gruesome experiments in a dark, mysterious experiment facility for the interests of science, study, and politics. These creatures can rip things apart atomically with their horns and unseen hands. Lucy, the queen of diclonius and the being with the highest degree of anger and wrath against humanity, is being held in a section of the facility.
All hell breaks loose when a careless blunder frees Lucy from confinement! All of humanity is at risk! Eventually, humanity will be subjected to the wrath of Diclonius’s queen.
6. Shinsekai Yori (From The New World)
We should not exclude the likelihood that humans in the future will be endowed with mental prowess and psychic capacities much beyond our current comprehension. Shinsekai Yori’s vision of the future is accurate. Post-apocalyptic Earth is now home to humans with psychic powers, thousands of years in the future!
Humans in a tranquil community in the far future have become bound by rules that are considerably more complex than anything previously seen. Everyone on the planet is a psychic! Furthermore, in order to keep civilization from extinction and ensure its long-term survival, stringent regulations must be put in place.
This is the narrative of a group of five children who are going to discover their extraordinary powers and the dreadful truth about the Earth and its dark history.
7. Boku no Hero Academia (My Hero Academia)
To continue our comparison, let’s look at another show in which the protagonist also possesses some sort of superpower. Boku no Hero no Academia and Mob Psycho 100 are both starring plain-looking protagonists, yet both have the potential to be quite powerful! Midoriya Izuku has the ability “One-For-All,” which is also possessed by the superhero who is regarded the mightiest of them all—All Might!—so Mob is already clearly powerful from the start.
This is the story of Izuku Midoriya’s journey from zero to hero in Boku no Hero Academia. The “quirks” or superpowers of many individuals around the world are regrettably absent in Midoriya, who was cruelly born without one. The only way to fulfill his lifelong ambition of becoming a superhero without the aid of a quirk is to give up all hope.
As luck would have it, the immensely popular and strong superhero “All Might” happens to come across him. All Might has finally met his match in that fatal encounter! Midoriya’s path to becoming a successful superhero begins to open as he learns that the “All For One” power may be transferred.
Psychic abilities already existed at that time! Akira, a Japanese animation that first aired in the late 1970s and early 1980s, was a huge hit with audiences. Also, keep in mind that the main characters in this story all possess gigantic levels of mental strength.
Chaos and anarchy reign in Neo-Tokyo in the year 2019. Gang battles are commonplace throughout the city. Corruption and ineffectuality in politics remain unabated. Protesters can be found everywhere. Neo-Tokyo is a location that doesn’t even come close to being tranquil. As far back as the 1970s, Tokyo was destroyed by a tremendous catastrophe. Another calamitous occurrence is about to take place.
A kidnapped child who possesses psychic abilities has made it free. At some point, he comes upon Tetsuo Shima, one of the bikers. Those were the beginnings. Tetsuo has activated his psychic abilities! How far along are we in this? There’s more destruction in store for Neo-Tokyo!
9. No Game No Life
While Mob may have the edge when it comes to raw mental strength and psychic prowess, the fabled “Blank” (Sora and Shiro duo) is a formidable opponent when it comes to really using one’s mind.
Known in the gaming community as “Blank,” Sora and Shiro are a brother-and-sister duo who live in seclusion. They are revered because they have an unblemished record in the field of play. In terms of gaming prowess, they are unbeatable.
Sora and Shiro are summoned to play chess by a mystery email one day. Naturally, they prevailed over the enigmatic antagonist, who turned out to be Disboard’s own “Tet,” the god of games. In this way, Tet sends the two of them on their merry way to Disboard. To begin, Sora and Shiro journey to Disboard, a planet in which all decisions are made through the use of games.
10. Kill la Kill
Kill la Kill is the anime to watch if you’re looking for style and originality. If you’re a fan of Mob Psycho 100 and Kill la Kill, there’s no excuse not to check them both out!
Ryuuko Matoi is on the prowl for the unidentified assailant who murdered his father. The only clue she has is the missing part of her Scissor Blade. That’s where she ends up—in an over-the-top and strange institution called Honnouji Academy.
It is Satsuki Kiryuuin and her Elite Four that await her on her road to vengeance at Honnouji Academy. Is there something they’re privy to? Is Satsuki Kiryuuin the person to turn to for help?
