It's about Shigeo, aka Mob, who is a teenage boy with powerful psychic abilities and who also struggles with having repressed most of his emotions. Register a free batoto account and read it there, kissmanga works acceptably as well if you have an okay adblocker.

Watch the beautifully animated TV show too. It's on Crunchy Roll.

I'd say it's as well animated as the OPM anime, just different.

Mob Psycho is a story about a boy born with extraordinary psychic abilities that operate on his emotions. As such, he has had repress them and keep them in check lest he hurt those around him. Now resents his power that prevents him from living a normal life. Mob wants to be buff and popular and date his crush, not be a godlike entity that he has to constantly keep contained

Mob's world is also filled with paranormal spirits and demons as well as other people with different psychic power. Outside of being an eighth grade student, Mob works a side job at the Spirit And Such Agency exorcizing and dealing with those spirits under his mentor Reigen, who claims to possess far greater power than Mob himself.

The story follows Mob growing up and trying to become a more fully realized and mature person and the people in his life that he meets and helps and who help him. It's a great story about self improvement that blends high action with humor and slice of life. The anime that aired last year is fantastic and covers about half the story

I like it, it's good

Mob Psycho is a story about an emotionally repressed youth learning that it's not what you're talented at but rather the kindness you show others that defines you as a person.

But yeah, mob psycho is definitely worth reading. I'm seemingly among the few that prefers OPM, even the original ONE version, but some of the moments in mob psycho are just jaw dropping. You won't have to wait long for them either.

i mean it's true, reigen does claim that

and i believe it

To me, Mob just has 100% of it's heart in it. While OPM is certainly no stranger to being sincere, Mob is constantly sincere, even when it doesn't exactly seem like it. Like all of the slice of life moments set up the action scene either through establishing the reason for the conflict or Mob's emotional state or way of thinking now.

Blast in the new Murata chapter actually looks a bit like from behind what we've seen of Blast in this version. Quite interesting that they're showing that.

I'm not quite sure how to judge that. Purely on a chapter-by-chapter basis, I think it's a little more than half way. The next part has a lot more action and is much closer to the pace of the Murata version.

I expect that once the manga actually gets to the hideout, it won't be adding many more scenes that aren't already in the webcomic.

Now, between Saitama vs Garou and Saitama vs Tatsumaki? That'll take several decades.

Yeah me too. It's basically the reason we have two threads. So that single scene won't get spoiled.

I'm sure there are at least a couple of other scenes worth not spoiling (that have already been spoiled at least a couple of times in the other thread anyway)

It's a good change, might as well introduce blast early if you already have the material (blast is like Saitama with hair. Probably less serious because he kept his regular job.)

Everything, to be honest.

But the King Ultimate Hellfire Wave Motion Cannon is the peak of humanity.

In terms of important new information as a whole for the series though, we can definitely take away that Blast is absolutely the real deal and we have something tangible to show for it, rather than just Tatsumaki's flashback but he doesn't have the Saitama strength that some have speculated he might have as some sort of parallel.
