Both series have the same sense of humor and absurd, comedic art packed with high amount of action in each episode, portraying how strong the protagonist is compared to the rest of the characters.

Main Protagonist is an overpowered Psychic and is of similar character. While the vibe is different, the settings come close to each other. Both are students and have interesting people around the Protagonist.

Similar senses of humour and art styles. Both have a lot of charm, great characters, character designs & animation.

Unscrupulous adults using poor innocent ESPers for their own nefarious ends. Very similar sense of humour, more exaggerated in Mob Psycho.

1. Master - Student pair in both ANIME. 2. Masters (Sensei) are very cool & funny character in both Anime. 3. Overpowered Protagonist. 4. Art & Animation are excellent. 5. Supernatural Anime with plenty of action.

Fantastical allegories for male adolescence. These hilarious action series ponder the eternal question: What does it take to be cool and mature? As the protagonist encounters various authority figures, the story explores various possible answers through increasingly crazy battles. The main difference is that FLCL leaves the interpretation up to the audience. Mob Psycho 100 is very straightforward in its delivery.

Another series with OP main character. Funny daily life stories. Low profile. I really recommend Mob Psycho 100 tho it is a little bit underrated and the picture is "artistic".

Supernatural battles and a similar student/mentor relationship at the center. The "mentors" (Yato and Reigen, respectively) are often silly/comic relief/over-the-top, but they can and do get serious for the sake of their students and are genuinely good mentors to them. Also have similar monster designs.

- Main character in both shows are trying to become better (coming of age) - Super heartwarming tearjerking wholesome story - Extremely good animation (despite simple character design, the production is superbly good with great OST & super smooth action scenes) - Rare masterpiece anime in 2020s. MUST WATCH!

Reigen Arataka and Onizuka are highly similar in character: People who at first glance, would seem like swindlers or frauds. More than that, what makes them similar is, they genuinely care for their sidekicks/students and are ready to protect them from any harm that they may encounter. Imo, both Reigen's design, as well as character, is heavily inspired by Onizuka. Both also possess that subtle charisma and self-confidence that makes viewers like them.

Mob Psycho 100 can be described as Akira's more wacky cousin. Both feature non-adults that possess psychic powers, some innate (e.g. Shigeo and Akira himself), others the result of experimentation and it is the result of the heroes and companions to rescue children/teenagers who possess such power from being used for malicious purposes.

Both shows take place in one city filled with supernatural and sometimes bizarre phenomenons. Plots of these two animes tell stories centered around school student finding an adult mentor and having various adventures together and with their friends, all covered in well implemented slice of life and comedy elements.

no one make a recommendation to HxH? okay, the similariity between these 2 animes is in the way they tend to over-expaining something narratively though MPS's was more humorous and yet it's rare to see any anime that put narration dominant in a episode. 
report Recommended by KyouKaiTen
Both shows revolve around the main character having the ability to see "the supernatural" and their sensei guiding them. I do have to mention that there aren't any psychic powers in Kai Byoui Ramune as there are in Mob Psycho 100. Though Dr. Ramune doesn't have money on his mind while guiding their pupil.

Though Mob Psycho 100 and Kotoura-san are undeniably drastically different series, with the former being primarily a fast-paced action series and the latter being primarily a drama-focused series, I urge anyone who enjoys either of these shows to give the other a chance. Though the pacing and genres of these shows are different, in both you'll find touching coming-of-age stories about main characters who struggle to come to terms with their psychic powers. Both have their fair share of comedy and light-hearted scenes to go along with their heavier scenes, and though I would argue that the comedy in MP100 is better timed and hits  read more

I'm really surprised no one has done this. Both Kekkai Sensen and Mob psycho feature an insecure boy trying to figure out life and their powers. Both protagonists have passive personalities. Both have a totally different visual style but feature unique animation. If you like lovable scumbags that somehow develop the MC (aka- Reigen/Dimple for MPO or Libra for BBB) then I would recommend this.

Both main characters do not have many friends and are always lonely because nobody understands them. Turns out mob and the main character dorotabo have powers and they meet a man who eventually becomes their sensei. The senseis accept the kid and take them in as their apprentice to go on journeys to deal with evil forces/ghosts/ghouls etc. As the main characters spends time with the sensei, they begin to open up and grow as a character.

If you enjoy anime with "psychic" characters these are comedy shows that focus on the life of an over powered psychic/esper. Both shows have great character design, OST's and similar senses of humour.

Both anime have a violent dark comedy humor, strong main character with a supernatural twist, and quirky animation that gives them similar vibe.

Both shows are very funny, but sometimes they have serious moments. In both series, attention is paid to "strange" organizations, whose leaders possess great charisma.

They both have brothers, the older brother is seemingly gifted with some kind of power. They both exorcise some spirits. 
report Recommended by SwordWielder
both animes are about the main character are able to see ghosts. They are gifted in the 6th sense. For Mob, he is able to exorcist demons, and for Meiruko, so far nothing can protect her because her spiritual powers is way too strong. I enjoy both of them because after every episode, its very wholesome and heartwarming.

Trigun and Mob Psycho both engage with deep philosophical questions relating to violence, nonviolence, and the value of human life. The protagonists are also similar in that they both have immense power, and engage with the responsibility that comes with it. Mob Psycho is, however, much more lighthearted and comedic than Trigun, and takes a more optimistic tone overall.

Both of these shows have a groovy, unique artistic style and off-the-wall humor. Mob Psycho contains a lot of action and combat that The Tatami Galaxy lacks, but they are both quirky, interesting little shows that make you think. Did I mention the phenomenal animation?

What does a show about diving and a show about supernatural, telekinetic powers have in common? The body improvement club! While they serve different purposes narratively, the muscular dudes in both Grand Blue and Mob Psycho serve as the lovable guidance in the series that help the protagonist grow into a better person through their sheer kindness and willpower.

It remindeds one of Chuunibyou as one of the characters wonders whether Mob (the protagonist) has Chuunibyou, only that Mob's powers are real, so it's like Chuunibyou but with real supernatural powers. The set of main characters are in their second year of junior high school and undergoing great emotional upheavals and life crisis, so the overall psychological situation of the characters is very similar.

Both have espers who are extremely powerful. One is about ghosts and they both show how people aren't comfortable with esper powers.

Both are based on manga/webcomic by the same creator ONE. They both have similar art styles, character designs & humour. Both main characters have the same bored/uninterested expressions on their faces most of time and can also get serious and lose that expression and be quite formidable.

report Recommended by Kasura
This may seem like a contradictory recommendation, as the two reside in different genres/tones/story styles. To put it simply: Parasyte: the Maxim is a sci-fi horror-thriller and Mob Psycho is pretty much the opposite. That said, the core of both of these stories is in parallel. They are both stories about compartmentalizing and stifling ones emotions in order to navigate ones life and experiences. Both protagonists grow by finding a way to get in touch with their emotions and accept themselves for who they are. They learn how to process their emotions and their respective genres and worlds serve as a landscape to showcase this  read more

Umaru-chan also focuses on a duo of characters who spend time with one another. If you enjoyed the "slice of life" moments of Mob Psycho 100 between Mob and Reigen, you will probably be a fan of the slice of life show about Umaru and her brother trying to get along. The wholesomeness and chemistry between characters is something I feel both shows highlight. A common theme is family and learning to understand each other. Lastly, both have comedy.

- Non-neurotypical main character. Has certain special abilities but difficulty navigating social situations with their peers. Doesn't emote very much/very well. - Colorful and interesting art style - Not the kind of art style you'd enjoy if you want to be thirsty for some pretty characters. Just not that kind of show in either case. - Utterly sincere main character surrounded by charming scammer-types, whom you can root for against the worse-intentioned less-charming criminal types. Both of these shows are technically action genre, but the resolution of problems has much more to do with confronting the personal issues and motivations of the antagonists, who are often morally grey or  read more

Young students, some weird monsters, and a ton of fighting. MP100 and WEP have a lot of differences between the two but they cross paths with young individuals being tasked to go out and use their unnatural abilities to fight those that cause havoc. MP100 does this with Mob and the world of espers and spirits, WEP does this with Ai and her group in these unearthly atmospheres reigned by demons of some kind. Both anime also have a supplier type character who sets them on such missions. Would also like to point out the drastic presentation differences of how MP100 is essentially something that  read more

Taken in. Mob Psycho 100 and The Boy and The Beast follow kids taken in by someone in a manner that is along the lines of parenting, but they act as a guardian. MP100 follows esper Mob trying to make good use of his powers via Reigen and his business, Boy and Beast are similar with an irresponsible Kumatetsu pair up with a bratty Ren, both making each other grow stronger by pointing out their different flaws. Both are good anime with there being action in both, as well as some comedy. Though MP100 is more ingrained in the two genres than the lighter Boy and Beast.

Family with the alien one. Mob Psycho 100 and Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms both follow a non-human being paired up with a family with a regular human being. Though, Mob is being used for Reigen's antics of exorcism. Promised Flower gives more of a family situation at hand. Both are great anime with amazing visuals in their own respective rights. Though MP100 is more comedy, borderline parody. Whilst Promised flower is a nice drama in a fantasy realm.

Jojo's bizarre adventure literally says it in the title but mob psycho is more bizarre than a lot of the parts in my opinion it's a funny show with a great story and a (somewhat) original one at that. I'm sure everyone who watches the first season would love it.

If you didn't care about the character designs and CGI and loved the fights in Mob Psycho 100, then Arifureta is the perfect choice for you. Even though the CGI and character designs of 'monsters' are not good, the character design of the main characters is too pure. And the fights are almost mesmerizing which will make you rewatch the anime many times.

Both are about a young boy learning to stand up for himself more and that being selfish is something that is necessary sometimes, while collecting an entourage of friends made through sheer knidness. Mob and Iruma are definitely up there for goodest boys.

Both shows involve a magical child protagonist who only desires a happy end for everyone. Being shoved into a somewhat cruel world, both of our innocent protagonists do their best to do the right thing but run into conflict and question their decisions. A major theme of both works is that magic and power ironically cause conflict in their lives. If you enjoy seeing Mob grow and overcome the challenges of life, perhaps you will enjoy seeing Madoka chase her own dreams.

Both are very well animated and experimental, while also being genuinely touching despite having generally wacky looking character designs. I'd consider both shows to be pretty character driven stories, and side characters from either show end up being pretty memorable despite not being focused on much. There are also similar themes addressed. Kaiba is definitely a more upsetting watch, but I'd say both shows manage a weird mix of both light-hearted and emotional.

Both series deal with a similar theme of characters who are very different from one another and how they use their extraordinary powers. Though Mob has more characters with powers then Inuyashiki and as such is able to explore more, both are sure to captivate anyone who's interested in the theme.

Eizouken and Mob Psycho are pretty different in terms of tone and subject matter, but where they both shine is in their animation. The teams of both have a clear passion for and deep respect of art and animation, and give unique spins to their styles to accentuate different aspects. Eizouken's sketchy sequences which blend imagination and reality are breathtakingly beautiful and extremely fun, while MP100 uses techniques like paint-on-glass to capture an ethereal and otherworldly vibe. Humor is pretty similar for both series. Often, they will take "realistic" set-ups and exaggerate them for the sake of comedy, while still maintaining a down-to-earth feeling and sincere  read more

Both feature teenagers with powers in a world much like our own where monsters of some kind abound (spirits in Mob Psycho 100, demons in Yu Yu Hakusho). Both main casts comprise: -a protagonist with a lot of spirtual/psychic power (Mob and Yusuke) -a goofy comic relief that still contibutes to the team on his on way (Reigen and Kuwabara) -a ladies man that is originally a villain but turns good (Teru and Kurama) -an edgelord that also turns good after being antagonistic at first (Ritsu and Hiei)

If you want to see the main character as a all powerful protagonist hero. I'll gladly recommend "Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei".

FMA03 and MP100 have one really important thing in common, to me: despite featuring characters with awesome superpowers (and therefore potential for dozens of drawn-out epic fight scenes), they have a pointed focus on the NARRATIVE and EMOTIONAL stakes of each battle rather than the scale or badassery. It's a couple minutes of action framed by hours of context, reflections, trauma, evaluation, etc. What ultimately matters isn't the physical strength or creative abilities of the protagonist, but their reasons for acting the way they do and how they deal with the choices they make. 03!FMA is distinctly less prototypical-shounen-y than the source manga or Brotherhood adaptation,  read more

Twin Star Exorcists and Mob Psycho 100 are both shows, with a ridiculous team of people who exorcise evil spirits. Each series has some scenes that take place in a school. The protagonist(s) in each series are in middle school. Each show has a family dynamic, in Twin Star Exorcists it is more of a groups of people who basically consider each other family. There is also a ridiculous character, who is the boss of the protagonist(s).

- Similar character designs, especially the facial features (mainly the eyes). - Both anime follow groups of Japanese kids, including delinquents, trying to find meaning in their lives. - They share an offbeat sense of humor, though Mob is a lot more pronounced with its jokes, compared to the dryer humor in Ongaku. - They shift to experimental, abstract animation styles during big emotional moments.

There are two defining traits that come to mind when comparing these series. The first and probably most obvious is the supernatural theme. Both Devilman and Mob Psycho feature battles against supernatural forces, often delving into Lovecraftian-levels of horror. The second common trait is the use of unique art styles to create equally-unique character animation. The animators were not afraid to go off-model when creating scenes in both Devilman and Mob Psycho, showcasing warped and squished faces and bodies to excellent effect. The use of sakuga is also prevalent throughout both series. So if you like supernatural horror-action pieces that showcase unique animation styles, you can't  read more

Both anime feature a protagonist with supernatural powers in a world where that is quite rare, and they both are mostly underestimated by their opponenets. Another similairity is that they both mostly fight ghosts or spirits. They even both are part of some sort of exorcising agency, where they are not the boss but they are the most potent fighter.

Mob Psycho 100 and Hugtto Precure have the same message. Reflected in both of their OPs, the message of "You can do anything! You can be anything! Your life is your own!" is very heartwarming and fans of one should probably watch the other. Although they have different genres, both have a similar overarching theme, as well as great characters.
