About Mob Psycho 100 Manga Volume 1
Mob Psycho 100 Manga Volume 1 features story and art by ONE.
From the creator of One-Punch Man and now a Netflix Live Action Series! Do you or someone you know need an exorcist who works cheap? Reigen’s your guy!
What’s his secret to busting ghosts while keeping prices low? Well, first, he’s a fraud, and second, he pays the guy who’s got the real psychic power—his student assistant Shigeo—less than minimum wage. Shigeo is an awkward but kind boy whose urge to help others and get along with them is bound up with the mental safety locks he’s placed on his own emotions. Reigen knows he needs to exploit Shigeo to stay in business, yet for better or worse he’s also his mentor and counselor. And he also knows whenever the normally repressed kid’s emotions reach level 100, it may unleash more psychic energy than either of them can handle!
Ratings & Reviews
Well-Written & Very Funny

Mob Psycho 100 is one of my favorite series and I pre-ordered the manga as soon as I saw it on RightStuf. Although ONE's art isn't the most detailed, he is really good at showing his character's emotions, does action drawings very well, and at writing the emotions of his characters. Can't wait for the release of volume 2!

This is probably my all time favorite series, and for good reason. ONE's writing is stellar and it's hard not to love every moment of it. The art style is an acquired taste, but once you get used to it you'll find that is has a charm of its own that any other style couldn’t do justice. The story goes very in-depth into the emotions of the characters and focuses heavily on character development. If you’re a fan of complex, well-developed characters, a touch of slice-of-life, sick battles, and coming-of-age stories, then this one is for you.
As for the physical volume itself: it's well-made. The cover has a nice matte finish with a contrasting glossy finish on the title and some of the chunks of concrete in the foreground. Overall, I really like how its designed. The size is a bit odd compared to most manga, but unless you strive for shelf uniformity it’s hardly a big deal at all.
I definitely recommend at least giving this manga a try. It's superb.
