Mob Psycho 100 is a fun series.
Centered around the story of Shigeo Kageyama, aka Mob, the overpowered psychic youth who just wants to live his life, Mob Psycho 100 wows its audience in multiple ways. Animation-wise, it’s fantastic, conceptually, it is intriguing, and its characters are engaging and fun. That being said, our main character is not quite like most other series.
Mob’s a very interesting main character- he’s not designed to be very attractive, he’s not funny for the most part, and comes off as disinterested, when other main characters are passionate and engaged. He’s an odd one, and I think, given his odd personality, and very restrained nature, he’d be quite an interesting person to psychoanalyze.
Now, this post is going to be a LONG one. There is a lot to explain about Mob’s psyche, but that just makes it all the more interesting. Hope you’ll join me for the ride- let’s get into the psychology of Shigeo Kageyama.
