Well done, they did justice to the chapters in the manga for sure.

I adore both of them to death (huge fan of the author), but honestly One Punch Man doesn't come close to the epic fights in Mob Psycho. I'm not going to spoil shit though.

Expect orgasmic greatness in this arc, that's it.

Basically, juicy's trying to say that ever since the incident that happened when they were kids (remember the end of episode 5), Ritsu's been afraid of Mob's powers and their unpredictable nature. He has been trying to disguise his fear as admiration in order to cope with that fact, which explains why he's been sucking up and tending to Shigeo's needs all this time. And now that he's obtained powers of his own, he's got no reason to play the nice little brother act anymore. Well, at least that's what Ritsu says.

Obviously that's not all there is to it, and we can't take Ritsu's words at face value since we know for a fact from this episode (his reaction to Mob getting beat up) and the previous ones (flashback at the beginning of episode 6) that Ritsu genuinely cares about his brother and truly sees his abilities as something amazing, even though it caused him to develop a major inferiority complex. However, his fear was definitely no lie either, so we have to assume that the truth about how he really feels towards Mob lies somewhere in the middle.

Holy fuck can people stop bringing up OPM?! Just watch the damn show and enjoy it for what it is, instead of watching and thinking "oh this show does [this, this, and this] way better than OPM. OPM this, OPM that, OPM OPM OPM." Let the show build its own identity and appreciate it for what it does for itself, rather than constantly bringing up the pointless comparisons for what it does better or worse than OPM all the damn time.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

You can always count on Bones to come through with some god tier choreographed fights.
10/10 episode and people are saying it only gets better? Holy shit...

Hopefully Ritsu got a taste of that humble pie after seeing his brother fight on his behalf...I mean look at Teru, it's doing wonders for his character at the moment.

Amazing art and animation this episode! I couldn't tell if there was even a moment it dipped in quality. Also, I'm glad Mob didn't end up fighting Ritsu. Him fighting the adult esper was definitely more interesting than if he had simply fought Ritsu. It's also nice to see the antagonist group being set up. Can't wait for them to fight Claw!

I was expecting some cliche fight between the brothers, but then I got this. Really surprised me. The kneeling scene was powerful. Well done. By the way, not that they are comparable, but this is way better written than OPM. Its more of a coming of age vs the parody one joke meme. Guess, who wins?


Is because, ONE the author, focus more on Mob psycho, OPM is like a hobbie for ONE, and its no joke xd

HOLY SHIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTT.

I just wanna say that even as huge fan of OPM, I was really uncertain about this series starting off. It really felt like it lacked the charm that OPM had from the get go and I even contemplated dropping this at one point. But man am I glad I stuck it out cause these past few episodes have been SOOOOOOO FUCKING AMAZING. I seriously thought OPM would be ONE's 1-hit wonder, but this show proves that the man is just a genius author, period. Also much love to Bones going all out with some of the most insane animation we've seen all year. dat sakuga doing fucking wonders making the action scenes look intense as hell.

Jesus, it's been a while since I've gotten this hyped for a show.

I think I've gotta say that this series puts OPM to shame. There is no comparison because of how good this anime is.

Things really accelerated with this episode, it's great that the series is growing an actual backbone of a storyline as opposed to OPM.

It was funny how oblivious Mob was to detecting Ritsu's psychic powers, at least he shook off his usual naivety during the fight.

Animation and art was awesome as always.

E: didn't even realise the EP was the english version.

Mob psycho 8 : WOW. Let me cool myself down first. Great episode. So this is where ritsu ends up. Kudos to the mean guy villain for standing toe to toe with mob's maddened state & getting away. The animation was marvellous throughout, although yutapon's own cut was so strikingly similar to his own in OPM finale. 4.5/5

Well dang, that crap escalated quickly. Situation went from bad, to absolutely horrible in like 2 seconds. Then Mob hit 100% and things got even more intense. Too bad things didn't end well, but nobody died I guess, so that's good. Looks like the next few episodes will be leading up to the final few battles.

Fun fact: this might be old news for some users, but many people around the web have noticed that Mob seems to have put up barrier in order to reduce the damage caused by his super final chokeslam:



Not only does this demonstrate an incredible attention to detail on Nakamura's part, it also reminds the viewer of how thoughtful and kind-hearted Mob is without the need to actually spell it out for them. Good stuff

That was nice, What I liked in this episode though is that Mob isn't that Overpowered and that makes him more human than he actually has been in the previous episode.

It was so perfect, Mob and Ritsu are so well built. For sure, Ritsu bear a heavy burden, but Mob is the big brother and he has shown it.
The animation was at its peak, suxh an amazing episode.

What an intense fight! Claw really is something, a single member pummeling Mob mercilessly and even surviving his 100% Rage onslaught.

Reigen the spiritual masseur xD

Shigeo still has some unconscious control even at berserk mode, it seems.

Ritsu got kidnapped with the cannon fodder kukuku.

Well, yes...that's basically what it is.

I'm not too sure about Mob's publication history, but O-PM is a satire. The 'first chapter' was just scribbled up as a test for the guy's new manga-drawing software. Of course it won't seem to have much direction!
Always remember that anime is a niche medium in Japan. Manga sells way better

Only got up to the point where Mob had to kneel down to apologize to the "thugs" on his brother's behalf, now that's a forced development and nothing quite like what Mob would do, just so that it would evoke some sort of emotion out of Ritsu. *cringe* I thought this arc would be great, and I may have been too hasty to judge, but so far, it isn't looking all that smooth.

This is quite frankly, disappointing.

What were you expecting Mob to do then? That is very in character for Mob, or at least Mob right now
"I like young-girl sexual creations, Lolicon is just one hobby of my many hobbies," he says.
I ask what his wife, standing nearby, thinks of his "hobby".
"She probably thinks no problem," he replies. "Because she loves young boys sexually interacting with each other."

I may have worded that poorly because of my disappointment at the moment I just done watching that scene, but typically, in that kind of scene, most people would definitely link his action to his love for his brother, and we have seen that he is very protective of his brother. However, without any context on how Mob feel about the situation, that scene made Mob out to be a stereotypical loving/caring brother without a character of his own, just for that one moment. Mob was surprisingly submissive when asked to kneel and apologize. He is often clueless, but isn't to that extent.

Your ".. at least Mob right now.." also got me thinking that you feel the Mob a moment ago and the Mob a moment later wouldn't have done the same thing.

I felt that scene was Mob compromising his beliefs and affection for Ritsu by offering himself in place of his brother so that his brother wouldn't have to get hurt and Mob wouldn't need to use his powers.

Your ".. at least Mob right now.." also got me thinking that you feel the Mob a moment ago and the Mob a moment later wouldn't have done the same thing.

Likely, but at the time I was hinting at a later arc in the series where Mob gets his ideologies tested and anything else is a spoiler
