Synopsis Mob Psycho 100 III eepisode 2

The giant broccoli in Spice City has invited the arrival of the Yokai Hunter, Haruaki Amakusa. Haruaki tries to convince Reigen of the dangers of Hakki who wants to resurrect the Yokai King in Spice City. Hearing this nonsense, at first Reigen couldn’t believe it. However, after receiving a hefty fee, Reigen sets out to prove that Yokai really exist.

Meanwhile, Mob is having his first Cultural Festival and is given the responsibility of taking care of the costumes. For the first time, Mob wanted to do his best so he asked Reigen for advice. However, in the end Mob finds a solution to his own problem and surprises Reigen.

Festival of culture and monsters

Mob who was busy preparing for the Haunted House for the Salt Middle School Culture Festival was really spending his time thinking about appropriate costumes. Because of that, Mob came to ask for Reigen’s help who was busy with Haruaki’s request to eradicate Hakki. Mob and Serizawa also get involved in responding to Haruaki’s request which was initially considered nonsense.

However, after meeting the Yokai figure in question, Reigen changed his mind. Luckily, Mob and Serizawa managed to get over everything without any problems. The problem lies with Mob, who throughout this episode really focuses his mind on the costumes for his class’ Haunted House.

In this episode, Reigen notices Mob’s changes. Mob had managed to come up with a solution to his own problem without any advice from Reigen. Although he didn’t seem to notice, Reigen was briefly surprised that Mob had become more independent and “mature”.

Minimal action and slow

This episode has minimal action and the plot is very slow. Other than that, there’s not much to take away from this episode other than the fact that Ekubo isn’t seen throughout the episode. Since Mob Psycho 100 III episode 1, Ekubo does seem to have his ambition back to become “God” by using Mob. As implied, Ekubo is fascinated by Mob’s power and how it makes people gather and wait for Mob to appear before them.

If you remember, Ekubo used to possess someone to become a cult dreamer (LOL) and stated that he wanted to become a God that many people worshipped. Currently, Ekubo’s movements have not been seen. However, it is certain that Ekubo will start acting in the next episode, when Mob begins to attract the attention of the followers of the Psychoo Helmet Cult.

Unfortunately, this episode 2 feels like filler which is not related to the development of Mob. Even so, in this episode, Serizawa also begins to look like he wants to develop himself as a continuation of Mob’s question about what he wants to do in the future. Serizawa who wants to resume his basic education shows the development of his character and his persistence to become better.

On the other hand, even at a glance, you can also notice that Mob looks enthusiastic in doing his job as a costume maker for his class’ haunted house. After seeing the visitor’s response, Mob was satisfied because it was the first time he had completed and achieved something big in his life.

Mob Psycho 100 III will enter a new chapter that is more tense. Giant Broccoli created by accident due to the explosion of Toichiro Suzuki and Mob’s power. The excitement caused has also made the Psycho Helmet Club even bigger and followed not only by ordinary people, but also by Espers.

***

That’s review anime Mob Psycho 100 III episode 2. After opening quite interestingly and showing Mob’s turmoil before the “explosion”, unfortunately this episode 2 does not continue that. You could say, Mob is still more relaxed and this episode shows the “normal” side of Mob as a middle school student.

We’ll just have to wait and see what kind of action will be in the next episode. Don’t forget to follow the reviews Mob Psycho 100 III episode 3 at KINCIR, yes!
