Crunchyroll's SDCC Summer Season Spotlight: Mob Psycho 100 | Mob Psycho 100

Other than 91 Days, the most notable anime Crunchyroll previewed and promoted during their first ever San Diego Comic-Con panel is Mob Psycho 100 -- which seems to be the anime everyone is watching or looking forward to watching. From the creator of One Punch Man comes a tale even more enthralling. It features unique animation with an opening that's vibrant, colorful, and oh-so-different than 91 Days, which falls on the more serious side of the spectrum.

Crunchyroll describes the storyline of Mob Psycho 100 on their website as the following:

“Kageyama Shigeo, a.k.a. "Mob," is a boy who has trouble expressing himself, but who happens to be a powerful esper. Mob is determined to live a normal life and keeps his ESP suppressed, but when his emotions surge to a level of 100%, something terrible happens to him! As he's surrounded by false espers, evil spirits, and mysterious organizations, what will Mob think? What choices will he make? The anime based on the original story by ONE, the idol of the webcomic world and creator of One-Punch Man, is coming your way with animation by leading animation studio Bones!”

While One Punch Man wasn't a title I completely loved, Mob Psycho 100 is already one of my top picks for the summer season. The anime contains likable characters and quite an unique storyline despite addressing elements that have been shown in previous anime. The animation is to die for, and the opening and ending songs are just as catchy as the series, itself. While the anime is primarily an action comedy, it deals quite a lot with relatable issues such as high school crushes and loneliness. Mob's isolation caused by his abilities have caused him to be emotionally stunted -- it's this emotional stunt that allows Mob to be such a fantastic main character.

The first four episodes of Mob Psycho 100 are available for your viewing pleasure on Crunchyroll!
