I was watching a new YouTube channel a week ago recommended to me by Greg, called Super Eyepatch Wolf. In it, he doesreally in-depth analysis of different anime. Some of his most popular videos are Why You Should Watch X (X being a favorite anime of his).
However, he is likely the strongest psychic in existence. Much like One Punch Man, Mob can defeat everything he comes into contact with, without barely trying. That of course could be very dull, but the interesting part about this show, however, is the characters. Mob is shy about his psychic abilities, and doesn’t feel they are any more special then someone who can sing well, or play an instrument.
The show does this in a unique way that helps further build the tension for the viewer. When things are happening to Mob that are frustrating or emotional, a percentage counter pops up on screen and shows us how close to 100% he is because at that point he will lose control. That’s just Mob, the other characters in this show are just as endearing once they are developed.
The world building is quite fun, and leaves you wanting to learn more about this crazy universe, and you love all the wacky side characters by the end of the first season too.
My only issue is the choice of direction for the animation. It jumps around quite a bit between motion and stills, realistic crisp animation and cartoonish animation. This can be a little jarring in the beginning, but you get used to it quite fast.
I definitely recommended this anime, especially if you liked One Punch Man and are waiting for its inevitable return. It is similar in some ways and yet totally unique and different. It helps, as well, that it is smart and funny. It definitely had me laughing out loud at certain parts.
Let me know what your thoughts are, did you love it, hate it, think it was just OK?
