Introduction

One-Punch Man creator ONE began his Mob Psycho 100 manga on Shogakukan’s Ura Sunday website in 2012, and it started being serialized simultaneously on the company’s MangaONE smartphone application in 2014. An anime adaptation was announced in February 2016.

In Japanese, the term “mob” refers to a background character, or someone who doesn’t stand out.

Story

Mob is a boy who explodes when something inside of him reaches 100. He looks fairly normal. Actually, he looks pretty dull, to be honest. Even though he lacks the ability to read the room, he is blessed with a superpower. A fraudulent psychic, a religious organization, a delinquent gang boss, and a mysterious, secret organization all have eyes on him because of his powers. With all this craziness, is there any chance of Mob living a normal life?
