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. 
report Recommended by Aleron
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. 
report Recommended by Souru
-both animated by BONES -both feature a boy who has yet to learn to control his incredible powers -both main characters appear to be weak and desire to protect others  
report Recommended by someoka
Unscrupulous adults using poor innocent ESPers for their own nefarious ends. Very similar sense of humour, more exaggerated in Mob Psycho. 
report Recommended by Lemon
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.

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.

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.

- Similar fluid and exaggerated art-style - Energtic OST - Bowl-cut protagonist

- Over the top music - Over the top designs - Over the top art - Over the top actions - Over the top reactions - Over the top movement - High School setting Stylistically they're very similar, but they have very different plots and characters.

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.

It looks very similar - both protagonists are espers and they doesn't want to show off their powers, but there is always some people that aware of it. The only difference is that Mob Psycho 100 is more serious, while Saiki Kusuo is comedy. Anyway it's still recommendable.

I get similar vibes from both animes: -Unique and different style -Amazing animation -Maybe the soundtrack  
report Recommended by Kasura
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

They both have brothers, the older brother is seemingly gifted with some kind of power. They both exorcise some spirits. 
report Recommended by SwordWielder
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. 
report Recommended by Fortress_Maximus
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 JVskunkape
They both share the same theme, just Natsume is more serious, while Mob Psycho is comedy 
report Recommended by CrowleYo
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.

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

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. 
report Recommended by Aura_Mirai
Similar in terms of animation although Level E is more polished & both deal with the supernatural. 
report Recommended by MJSpice
Clients go to the office to report on the supernatural phenomena they experienced while giving details and exorcising them afterwards. 
report Recommended by Ysra
-Great comedy -OP Main character  
report Recommended by doomlord357
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. 
report Recommended by ChilHomil
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?  
report Recommended by okcoolthanks
While both of these animes have very different plots from each other, there are some similarities: Both shows use their over exaggerated movements and animations, to add contrast to the story, which is a source of comedy. Both shows also have rather unique art style and character designs, which are rather simple looking, and not that similar to the normal anime style we all know.  
report Recommended by yotamdin
You should really give this one a chance if you haven't watched it yet. -lighthearted when it needs to be -You'll definitely like Glenn if you liked Reigen -Dosen't have romance just for the sake of romance -Funny and satisfying -Touching teacher-student relationships  
report Recommended by tincanman
These shows both have op characters 
report Recommended by YoungChigga
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.

-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 
report Recommended by kazuicheese
Protagonists aren't very comfortable using their superhuman powers and find solace with people like them. Also the fight scenes are pretty similar. 
report Recommended by Johnny386
Both happen in a school environment, influences Slice of life, exaggerated comedy, besides being equally episodic and if they are the subject of supernatural situations in a specific city 
report Recommended by tiobaessa
they both involve demons/crypids and i lovE THEM!! 
report Recommended by hootiee
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. 
report Recommended by Granta
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.

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

Both have awesome fights and great action animation. Both have young main characters that have incredible powers. Both have older and more experienced characters that guide the younger protagonists on the right path, encouraging them to use their powers to help other people in need.

-Both were animated by Studio BONES and utilize animation techniques not often seen in anime. -Dandy, the main character of Space Dandy, is similar to Reigen in the sense that they are both deadbeat adults that are always looking for ways to make easy money but are still very charming and likeable because of how humorous and sometimes absurd their antics are. -Despite their humorous nature however, both shows can be quite emotional at times, when they focus on human relationships and the loss of one's loved ones. -Some key differences are the settings (Space Dandy is in space, while Mob Psycho in a small town) and  read more

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. 
report Recommended by imranhasan
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)

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. 
report Recommended by TuyNOM
Similarities: -Mob and Negishi are quite similar in terms of personality (a very calm person who could change into someone different in a certain situation). -Both focused on Comedy. -Simple yet unique art style. Differences: -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.

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.

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

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).

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

• Both series feature a goofy con artist mentor figure (Kuruma Joe and Arataka Reigen) • Both series feature a boy with a bowl haircut and an immense power which he keeps secret (Takeshi as Polymar and Mob as a psychic) • Both series feature a snarky comic relief non-human being (the dog and Ekubo)

Both have espers who are extremely powerful. One is about ghosts and they both show how people aren't comfortable with esper powers. 
report Recommended by fatheredpuma81
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.
