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

-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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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

They both have brothers, the older brother is seemingly gifted with some kind of power. They both exorcise some spirits.

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

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.

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.

-Both deal with themes of growing up and understanding yourself -Both are riddled with comedy at first, but turn into emotional roller coasters in their second seasons -Both prominently feature a student-teacher relationship -Both also feature lots of side characters who get their own arcs, helping to flesh out the world as one where not just our main characters are troubled by conflict

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.

luscious fight scenes. Whatever you think of the show itself, both series are amazing works of art in regards to animation. A feast for the eyes! Solid storylines makes it an all around good choice for when you want some shounen to watch.

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

- 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.

Thoughtful and likable characters using their unique powers to fight each other with themes of friendship and community. Mp100 is basically a kinder and shorter version of part four with even better visuals and music

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".

They both share the same theme, just Natsume is more serious, while Mob Psycho is comedy

-Great comedy -OP Main character

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
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.

Both involve an MC that is overpowered but doesn't show it Like Mob the plot circles around the MC's job, however, Gunjou no Magmell is all mini-arcs  
report Recommended by kevindasian
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.

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

Protagonists aren't very comfortable using their superhuman powers and find solace with people like them. Also the fight scenes are pretty similar.

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.

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

Both series have wacky humor and over the top animation. both take place in a quirky city  
report Recommended by Katishere
Despite their settings and tones differ dramatically, both shows suprisingly explore very similar topics: growing up, finding one's place in the world, the importance of friends, power corruption, morality, the advantages of peaceful resolutions, etc. Both shows are comedies, though their humours differ, and both shows feature psychic/supernatural abilities, though MP100 to a far greater extent. SwKS also heavily relies on fan service (there's none in MP100) and great amounts of random coincidences (not nearly as abundant in MP100, and if, then incorporated more smoothly). Still, to an attentive viewer, both shows can offer a lot to ponder about.

These shows both have op characters 
report Recommended by YoungChigga
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.

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. 
report Recommended by HappyNaru
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.

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.

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.

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)

-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

Both popular gag parody comedies that both follow super powered (extremely so) psychic main characters. Both shows have great characters, art styles and OSTs. Both have similar senses of humour.

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.

Similar in terms of animation although Level E is more polished & both deal with the supernatural.

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

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 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.

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.

-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

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).

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

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.

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.
