Both of these stories are written by ONE, and have the same sense of humor. They started out as webcomics, although you'll notice that the style is different, as OPM got picked up by a bigger company, and got a new artist, although the story is still written by ONE.
There are several theories that the worlds are actually connected.
Mob and Saitama have very similar personalities, that are along the lines of emotionless, although they both have different reasons for such.
Both build up their allies, and occasionally, foe turns into friend.
Both made from the same creator. Both are action packed with fantastic fight scenes. Both contain humor that will make you LOL. If you watched one of these and you enjoyed it I would defo recommend watching the other.
One Punch Man and Mob Psycho 100 have a really similar feeling, that being said the both share the same creator. They both contain a ridiculously overpowered main character who has two emotions, "OK" and "K.O"! They even share a similar art-style. I really enjoyed them both~! ღ(❤♡❤ღ) Super Powers FTW!!!
Both of these series are really unique on their own but share a similar humor and main character.
The biggest difference is probaly the art Style. One Punch Man used the redrawings from another mangaka while in Mob Psycho 100, Bones went all out and used ONE's original drawings. Which gives off a great vibe
I can assure you that if you liked either series the other is going to be a fun ride all over again.
When I saw the first episode of this show, there was only one thing going through my mind: One Punch Man. Why? Simple, the main character of Mob Psycho 100, Kageyama, is like a mini Saitama from One Punch Man. Here's some things the two main characters have in common:
- They are always bored
- They are overpowered
- They are both very calm most of the time
- Their faces... I'm serious.
- They have a sidekick... Completely useless... But they are still sidekicks... Right?
The characters are always fighting monsters in an original and funny way, which is something they have also have in common. read more
Same creator, different art style but works quite well, similar comedy, really strong main character, has some very crazy twists that you should expect from One but you won't actually expect, and overall is amazing.
Similar fashion in terms of character styling, attitude, as well as both have overpowered main character. Similar comedy and joke. No wonder since it is from the same author. A bit different in term of environments art since Mob designed to be a bit more sketchy compared to OPM.
Made by the same author, both Mob Psycho 100 and One Punch Man share a lot of similarities with each other. The protagonists are very powerful but are lacking in other aspects. Both the shows follow their main characters, as they learn that being all-powerful doesn't solve everything. If you enjoy great fights and good character development in anime, you'll probably enjoy both the shows.
Yes others said it all, let me tell again. These anime have
- similar vibe with similar main protagonists
- the main character never brags about his strenth
- his strength his limits and source of his strength are not known
- finally the art of both is literally the same
They are made by the same mangaka, One!
Most facial expression in Mob Psycho 100 are based out of Saitama's "Ok" face. Both anime contain a similar story starting from the main character already having a monstrous strength. Action are undoubtedly awesome and characters have various personality even though their face are... Similar.
Personally a really amazing anime that are shadowed by the greatness of OPM. A must watch for those who want more of OPM after watching all the OVAs.
Both feature an unassuming main character, who is overpowered. The side characters can be very dramatic, which plays of the main characters very calm, bored demeanor. The art style is very similar, and so is the humor.
Saitama and Mob look and behave similarly. They both have a "sidekick" character who aren't as powerful (although, Genos can definitely beat up Reigen--and almost anybody-- anytime). They are both very powerful characters from the beginning, exaggeratedly so. Both animes have incredible action--and the animation styles for it--and are mostly funny.
I'm not caught up with Mob Psycho just yet, but I'm not the only one who has seen the similarities between these two.
Mob Psycho 100 and One Punch Man were written by the same man, a web comic artist called ONE. So both of these shows share a similar theme of humor and integrate it into bombastic, over the top action scenes. ONE's talent to emotionally connect the audience to his larger-than-life characters in a smooth, natural way is also used to its fullest in Mob Psycho 100. Each show is gorgeously animated and is backed by an appropriately great OST.
They are made by the same creator and have the same animation style, with Mob Psycho staying truer to the web comic it derived from. Mob is more relatable to me than Saitama. The shows are both amazing.
Mob Psycho 100 is the obvious progression for anyone who was a fan of One Punch Man. Given they are both products of the writer One they carry many of the same tropes, namely the dead-pan, obscenely powerful protagonist. However, I believe that Mob Psycho 100 brings more emotion to the table than OPM. There are emotional moments in OPM, but Mob Psycho 100 really takes it home because where Saitama lacks ambition and is only a hero as a hobby, Mob has ambition, just ludicrously misplaced. In this way Mob seems to me to be a more relatable and in-depth character than Saitama. The supporting cast of MP1 is also a big step up. I love Genos just as much as anyone else, but he can be a bit... robotic. MP1 basically takes the premise and style of OPM, and improves on it in a way that makes an even more engaging and interesting story. If you liked One Punch Man, you will love Mob Psycho 100. read more
Aside from the fact that both stories were created by the same manga artist, ONE, there are lots of similarities that mean if you like one show, you'll probably like the other. Super powerful main character? Check. Ridiculous humor? Check. Well thought out side characters and meaningful relationships? Check and check. They're both wonderful. But, saying all that, they ARE completely separate stories that are amazing on their own, not just copies of the other.
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.
- Both protagonists have psychic powers (and are totally OP)
- A good cast of interesting side characters
If you liked the comedic aspects of MP100, Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan (TV) has got you covered for me. The latter lacks the intensity of MP100, but its quick wit and fast pace is enough to keep you hooked.
Mob Psycho 100 and The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. are both ridiculous, over the top comedy series about a teenage boy with superpowers. Each show has a part where the main character bends a spoon with his powers. There is a girl with dark blue hair who, in Mob Psycho 100, Mob has a crush on her. While in The Disastrous life of Saiki K., everyone else has a crush on her.
They both have Powerfull Protagonists that have problems dealing with the problems caused by their powers, yet The Disastrious Life of Saiki Kusuo has a more comedic tone and the main character shows more emotions.
Do you like psychics??!! Do you want to have a good time with a crazy and most of the times non-sense plot?? Unique characters that can't be possibly be taken seriously? Well, those shows are made for you. Two unique characters with crazy overpowered psychic abilities trying to live a normal life that will bring awkward and sometimes hilarious situation.
Both are animated by Bones and are very fluent, consistent and overall stylish with animation. Both have pretty rad supernatural elements (MP100 with psychic type powers and BnH focuses on a variety of superhero powers) Both use uncommon shots, camera angles and funky perspectives for fight scenes. Both have a unique style that you won't find in many other shows.
Boku no Hero Academia is less comedy based than Mob Psycho 100 and Mob Psycho 100 has more of a psychedelic vibe, especially with its opening. Boku no Hero Academia has more characters and a slightly more polished style than Mob Psycho 100.
If you enjoyed the animation and artistic innovation of one series, you will probably enjoy the other. read more
Both anime feature incredibly powerful main characters that are still unable to control their super powers. Both of them are also aware that those powers do not make them special or better that anyone else, which adds a very nice layer of depth to the character.
This is a similar show to My Hero Academia in the sense of the basic feel for the show. When watching this, you will notice that there is not supposed to be a serious atmosphere. This is a comedy in pretty much most senses, there is no danger for the main character because of how OP he is. There are some epic fight scenes, just like My Hero Academia, that make you super hype! And after, and even during some of the fights, they add humor to make you remember that. That there is NO NEED TO FEAR, just ENJOY the epic scene!!!! Its so funny, and incredibly enticing. I watched this, just like my My Hero Academia, in a binge over the weekend. So I highly recommend this! read more
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.
They both involve spirits and there is a similar art style surrounding them. There's also a bit of a get-rich-quick vibe going around Yato that is reminiscent of Reigen's being a con artist. Like Noragami, I would say that Mob Psycho 100 has strong characters but is a bit lackadaisical in the story department.
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.
If you are looking for extremely expressive animation and bizarre story these are the shows for you. Animation in these shows is extremely good and it's followed by exciting music, although Mob relays on instrumental while FLCL uses music by band called The Pillows.
Although both stories are mostly weird Mob Psycho 100 is easier to understand and follow.
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.
Both have unique animation style, insane/epic movement, cartoon-like, random humor, impressive opening/intro song and extreme action. But the difference is kill la kill is for more matured audiences (because of boobs,heavy blood,sexual etc) but mob psycho 100 much suitable more all audiences.
"Troubled adolescents are gifted with near-omnipotent psychic powers" is an accurate one-sentence summary of the premises of both shows, though the settings and the moral thrust could not be more different - Mob Psycho has an inspiring and uplifting core, which definitely CANNOT be said for SSY. Oh, and! While Shinsekai Yori's art style and animation aren't nearly as bonkers as MP100, for the most part, there's some really trippy moments which make it worth watching if you like inventive animation.
-Though, each episode of Hanako-san is about three minutes, it delivers a clever-but-a-little-cheesy but just right comedy. It was a 90s anime anyways!! (not saying they're all bad.. i loved them LOL)
-Both have relations to excorsising and dealing with spirits and super natural.
-Both protags just want to help people in need.
-Little spirit that accompanies them.
-Protagonists look alike, if you care about that !
-Pretty powerful protagonists
-Simple art style
Both anime are filled with some of the most intense and fast-paced action scenes ever seen in anime, with Taboo Tattoo focusing on martial arts and superpowers combined while Mob Psycho 100 focusing on psychokinesis. Both are immensely fun to watch for action anime fans and are worth recommending.
Both Bungou Stray Dogs and Mob Psycho 100 focus on characters who face challenges because of their powers and the effects that they have on people. These characters grow and develop over time with the help of those around them, and, of course, there is some action sprinkled in over the way. Mob Psycho 100 has a bit more comedy, and the art styles differ quite a bit, but overall I think this would be something to watch next.
The main character of both shows have a lack of presence and tend to be underestimated by their "enemies" and sometimes by their allies as well they also have very similar personalities.
This shows are action packed but also have comedy which makes a perfect balance.
1) The story occurs in a world filled with phantoms
2) The main character uses super-powers to fight the phantoms that cause trouble
3) The characters go to high-school
4) Near the end of either series, the characters fight against a large organization doing illegal acts.
5) The characters are paid / hired to fight phantoms
6) The lead male character has a weak-phantom companion / friend
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.
We find conflicts between different gangs.
In addition there are characters with supernatural powers (Celty, Anri and Mob, Teruki) with normal characters without supernatural abilities (Reigen and Mikado).
Durarara!! is however more serious and mature than Mob Psycho 100 is more focused on comedy.
If you want to see the main character as a all powerful protagonist hero. I'll gladly recommend "Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei". In both anime the main protagonist is the most strongest yet no one recognized it first. And you can find similarity both in psychic and magical power. Hope you can enjoy both.
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, which to me is one of its strongest suits. Battles are incredibly few and far between, and last a couple minutes at maximum because the focus is instead on how the characters react to the conflict.
Mob Psycho 100 is concerned above all else with the mental and emotional state of its ridiculously powerful protagonist; the psychic abilities he wields themselves are entirely secondary to this. The story is about dealing with emotions far more than it is about using psychic powers, and I think it has that in common with 03FMA, which has very few and very intimate conflicts that serve the characters' development, rather than cool grand-scale alchemical duels between stronk dudes.
(Don't expect another Edward, though. If anyone Mob is much more like Alphonse.) read more
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.
They both have the similar brotherhood theme.
-Rin & Shigeo/Mob have the massive power inside their body (Rin has satanic power/Shigeo has psychic power). They always there to protect their younger brother.
-Yukio & Ritsu didn't have that power but they can do some things better than their older brother. Despite that, they always have the strange feelings towards their older brother because they think they were 'nothing' compared to them..
Both are about supernatural things, both have great action scenes and cool animation.
-Mob and Negishi are a bit similar in terms of personality (a very calm person who could changed into someone different in a certain situation).
-Both focused on Comedy.
-Simple yet unique art style.
-Detroit Metal City is about Music, while Mob Psycho 100 is about Supernatural things.
-DMC's comedy is more mature compared to the comedy in Mob Psycho 100.
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.
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).
