It really is pretty good after all! I didn’t really know what to expect going in, but this is a show I kinda wish was around when I was younger.

It’s pretty good at speaking to introverted kids trying to find their place in the world in those awkward years, I think, without some cheesy, simple, “Surprise, you’re the chosen one!” sort of approach. This is all the more impressive given that they do have that protagonist is ridiculously powerful but doesn’t know how to channel it character trait going on here.

I can see now why it became so popular, even aside from it following the success of One-Punch Man.

    Mob was made as a mirror to Saitama. Both share the burden of talent, but the difference is that Saitama wants to be challenged at the thing he’s the best at, while mob wants to be challenged at what he’s weakest at, to become a well rounded person.

    Mob is such a great character and inspiration - I feel like we’ve only just scratched the surface of his development.

        Idk about the mangas but it’s definitely my favorite anime between these two (and I love one punch man so that says something)

          That’s what I was going for, which is on me for not clarifying. My bad! I haven’t read the One Punch Man manga, so it would be unfair for me to compare them in that medium.
