And there you have it, folks! The anime of the year.
I love seeing how people's opinions on Reigen did a 180 through the season. Reigen 1000% is such a great moment.
Also, if you didn't know, the segment at the end with the tsuchinoko had ONE providing key animations. That's really exciting!
If you're put off a little by the pacing, I'd try the manga. ONE's style on Mob Psycho likes to play with escalation and deescalation, sometimes in really short time spans (compared to OPM, which had the very cinematic redraw focused on escalation). This works really well in the manga, but I can see how it doesn't translate well to the anime for some folks. I have to say, though, that BONES did an admirable job of adapting it. The anime has its own flavor, which does justice to the series in an animated format. They made some good decisions on switching some scenes around, giving certain ones more impact, and pacing the episodes. In the manga, I had a few issues with the end of the fight with the 7th division, but the anime really made the moment land for me.
I'm hoping Mob does well enough in sales to get a season 2. By including Shou's phone call, it seems like the team is more than up for it, and the show has brought a lot of new fans to the Psycho Helmet fold, so I think it's almost guaranteed.
I want to support it as well and find a Mob shirt or something. If anyone knows where to look, I'd love to hear.
