Score: 7.5/10

Where the first season of Mob Psycho focused more on being funny, this second season focuses more on the drama. There’s a lot more heart. There’s also a ton of well animated action scenes. This season was great.

This season picks up where the last season left off. Mob is massively powerful psychic just trying to live his high school life. The evil group of psychics from last season who seek to take over the world show up and enact their evil plan. Now, Mob and his allies must figure out how to stop them.

This season, there’s less ghost hunting and more introspection and character development, which I love. You get a lot more episodes simply exploring the history of the main characters and the emotional hurdles they need to overcome.

The animation this season is somehow even better than last season. It’s interesting because the style of the show stays true to the lousy hand drawn style of the author, One. However, the animators take that style and add tons of frames and production value, creating a immaculately animated, amazingly fluid cartoon with some of the worst looking character designs I’ve ever seen. It’s hilarious and awe inspiring at the same time.

Overall, Mob Psycho is one of the most unique, funniest shows with some of the best action scenes in all of anime. Though written by the same guy who wrote One Punch Man, Mob Psycho has a ton more heart, focusing a little less on the humor and more on drama and character development.

Score: 7.5/10
