All right, let's do this thing!

My boyfriend and I actually ended up watching 3 episodes today, so we have a bit of a head start.

S1E1:
-The animation is really weird and trippy in this show, definitely takes some getting used to.
-The comedic tone is definitely working for me though.
-I like Reigen, even though "fake psychic who takes advantage of people" doesn't seem like it would make for a likeable character type. I'm just surprised he hasn't been found out already.
-Way to build tension by introducing a mysterious countdown! It totally feels like a cheap trick, but it's definitely making me intrigued to keep watching.

S1E2:
-I just like how everything in this episode is framed as super dramatic when it's just about mundane middle school problems.
-Aw, the girl he likes got bored of his psychic power displays. Floating dogs just aren't impressive anymore. But people who can run fast... way more interesting!

S1E3:
-My boyfriend totally called it early on that the cult leader was going to be a spirit, though he did second-guess himself like three times before the actual reveal. Actually, I'm kind of surprised that Mob didn't detect it right away.
-I love how the narrator chimes in for a second just to explain that Mob really likes milk.
-Okay, that countdown (count-up?) went up waaaay faster than I was expecting. I thought it was going to keep building gradually until like halfway through the season.

Yeah, I can't really predict how quickly we'll be progressing through the show, I'm afraid. We don't watch TV together super often (once or twice a week, usually), but with 20-minute episodes, it's easy to binge a bunch of them in a row like that.

S1 E1

Spoiler:

- The kazoo battle music gets me hyped
- As far as I understand, the psychic battle bit in the first minute or so never happened in the original manga, it was kind of just added to the show (I assume to show off what you can expect from it right away)
- Reigen starts typing while explaining to make himself seem smarter
- "I'm sure her face will return to normal too" God dammit, Reigen rofl
- Animation on the evil spirit who snuck up behind apple-head
- Dat intro music <3
- I really like the % build-up as a way of also building tension
- Mob sees the other girls around Tsubomi-chan as veggies
- "Go back to the ozone layer." Savage, Reigen Laughing
- "Those are the typical lies of a con artist." REIGEN

S1E1
Spoiler:

-I have no idea what's going on but it's all very metal and badass. Also, I'm pretty sure I must be on drugs.
-refer a friend, get an extra exorcism free Laughing
-"I'm sure her face will return to normal too" rofl
-I love the way they went with the bad drawing style to make the visuals so insanely expressive and creative
-haunted by the spirit of a man who got so freaked out from a cockroach he smashed his head through the ceiling and died rofl
-the asshole pays him 300 fucking yen
-the percentage thing really does make for great tension
-"oh come on, he's going through puberty, let him bend some spoons"
-Reigen accusing the spirit of being a con artist Laughing
-Mob just calmly ignores Reigen and goes ahead and does everything while still seeming totally humble and deferential, that's possibly a more useful skill than being a powerful psychic, especially in Japan
-the psychic art is so cool
-goddamnit, at the last minute they had to show me delicious-looking ramen, and my ramen place is closed indefinitely Sad

I agree it's weird how easily an conman transparently exploiting a naive teenager can be a likeable character, I think maybe it's because he's so bad at it. I'm liking this so far!

Spoiler:

- The amalgamation of adolescence
- Are porn sites in Japan illegal?
- SORCERY CRUSH
- I love that all of Reigen's "special moves" are just complete bullshit
- Mob can use "a little ESP"
- Mob wants to experience new things
- The "Go Home" club is the best club
- The menacing student council
- Creepy and then the black-and-white look of defeat Laughing
- "He doesn't have a girlfriend or any friends, all-around bum."
- Tome trying to act all cutesey
- Mob can't seem to make decisions for himself and Reigen's kind of "wait, if I told you to leave, you would just do it because you don't really want to join the club?"
- Reign the con-man vs a manipulative middle school girl in a high-stakes battle for who gets Mob after school
- Reigen calls her an "amateur" Laughing
- Reign sees right fucking through it all and "That club is going down because it's meant to go down" rofl
- A One Punch Man manga
- "You should properly decline things you don't want to do" as they're walking down the street dressed like women
- Mob successfully infiltrates girl's school
- "Thugs." Sort of like Japanese bullying in general, I have a hard time taking Japanese girl delinquents/"thugs" as a serious threat
- RIP Mob's confidence, couldn't even survive a few minutes with high school girls
- Scent-Ghost Neutral
- Mob blushing now that they think he's cool
- The ghost recognizes a fellow loser and makes him wonder if he's living like how he wants to
- THE BODY IMPROVEMENT CLUB
- "Will spending every day with cola, snacks and video games be living life to your fullest?" YES
- For serious, Mob standing there and wondering if he actually wants to do anything and if everyone else has that drive is really relatable.
- And the effect of him melting away as he's thinking about it
- He wants to walk home with Tsubomi and hold her hand, too pure for this world
- The fickle boredom of tiny girls strikes again :nono:
- GOOD TO HAVE YOU
- The first time I saw Mob enthusiastically join the Body Improvement Club with the buff jocks, I fucking cried laughing
- I really like the outro style, how Reigen is getting ready for his day in drab tan and white and only when he links up with Mob does the day become colourful

We ended up finishing season 1 over the course of this week. Whoooops. :/

It's tough to do episode-by-episode commentary at this rate, so I'll just stick to commenting on your commentary. Wink

Needless to say, I like this show a lot. Reigen is my favorite, but Mob is also an interesting character. I like that there is also an examination of some psychological/philosophical ideas throughout the show.

-he joins the body improvement club rofl

- Both destroying his dreams ("you'll never be popular even with muscles") and trying to move him towards hers ("telepathy") while also giving kinda good advice ("if you want to be popular with girls, read their minds and you'll know what they're actually into")
- Reigen figures out Mob wants to read a girl's mind, Mob starts sweating profusely rofl

- "This is what happens when I show my emotions"
- Reigen telling Mob that he won't be able to get a clue, but it doesn't matter because "why do you want to be like them, you're the protagonist of your own life." In the first episode or two Reigen seemed a bit tooooooo
- Mob's 0% when Reigen tells him that he was uniquely qualified to save the people from the con man Happy tears
- And yeah, hello little Dimple :rotfl:
- The fucking preview. "Mob Gets Dragged Into An Idiotic Event For Idiots Run By Idiots."

That was better than I remembered

-the spirit came home with him???

Spoiler:

-"After all, I'm the main character in this world" in contrast to Mob who has to be told he's even the main character in his own life.
-"Huh, you want to shake hands?" and then Mob proceeds to brutally bash him against the floor Laughing
-"This is one of Reigen's special moves where he uses CG software to edit photos" rofl
-The spirit can immediately tell Reigen has no psychic powers, but Mob apparently can't. Or maybe he can but he's just going along with it because Reigen's so forceful and confident about it.
-Reporter-girl's sneaky look when she tells Mob's brother that she wants to write about him so he can get the recognition he deserves
-The brother's cool and popular like Mob wants to be, but he just wants psychic powers like Mob Sad
-The spirit's frustration while Mob's dismissing the use of psychic powers Laughing
-All the things that psychic powers can't get him
-"Say no to violence" (Actually, though, all the body-builder-y types I've met are the wimpiest people in the universe, they're always tired from going to the gym, and show-muscles are apparently not always the same as useful muscles)
-the love letter spelled "adore" wrong rofl (also, the kanji that he's missspelling is one elementary school students would definitely know, let alone middle-schoolers)
-Mob's so happy, and the spirit just crushes him with "you're too unpopular to even recognize the letter's a lie" Sad
-"Just in case, I wrote 'I'm a girl' on it" rofl
-Mob shows up 50% because he's an idiot, 50% because he'd feel bad standing her up if a girl did show up
-Aww, Body Improvement Club instantly goes to 100% rage for their weakling
-Spirit trying to get him to be prepared to defend himself with his powers and he's just so blankly but determinedly rule-following
-the bodybuilders flicking the gang-members over their shoulders
-the storm-clouds in this episode are gorgeous
-Psychic asshole's pretty good!
-Mob's still tied up Laughing
-Wasn't he at like 20% before? People misusing psychic powers is worth a big percentage jump!

A little blander an episode, but it seems like it's setting up a lot of new stuff.

- Dimple telling Mob that Teru is "living life to the fullest" using his psychic powers whereas Mob doesn't have anything appealing without it
- Reigen of all people taught him that you can be confident about your powers or specialties, but not conceited, they're like knives, tools but also deadly weapons if you point them at others
- Mob wants to find some other potential inside himself ;_;
- Dimple popping out arms and legs Laughing
- RIP Dimple
- Mob's barely bothered that Dimple got erased, all of his memories of him are Dimple being a scumbag Laughing
- Battle animation Nod
- Mob deflects one of the knives and it cuts off his hair Laughing
- TOP OF TERU'S HEAD 0%
- Mob just returned the "If you take away your psychic powers, there's nothing left" on Teru
- And that makes him mad enough to try to choke out Mob without his powers
- Throws a wimpy punch to avoid using his powers
- Memories of fucking up older kids but also Ritsu with his powers
- The static cut-off at 93% as he passes out
- Rejecting each other's ideals, leaving no victor and no conclusive moment in the battle and leaving a moment of emptiness in their hearts
- OR DID IT
- ???%
- Teru gets blown into the atmosphere and realizes he's average after all
- 100% sadness, Mob's meager attempt at resisting his own powers by fixing what he'd destroyed

Spoiler:

-Psychic Asshole's tough-talking "we need to establish the hierarchy" and ground-destroying power, and it only ups Mob's emotions by 2 percent rofl
-He gets nauseous doing cool self-telekinetics
-Dimple trying to get him to use his powers by saying there's nothing appealing about him without them
-Is that Reigen teaching him to respect other skills as equal and not to use his powers against people? Dude's a pretty good role model for being a manipulative user con-artist!
-"That all gets ruined once you know Reigen said it" rofl
-He's going to find some other potential in himself Happy tears The way he's somehow so quietly, deeply determined underneath all the meek and wishy-washy surface really makes you root for him
-Dimple steps up to defend him
-And then Mob looks shocked, but the flashback scenes are all Dimple being terrible and trying to possess him, and his emotion meter doesn't increase at all rofl
-but then while Psychic Asshole is insulting him, he pictures Dimple encouraging him (why does Mob get all his encouragement from untrustworthy people/spirits??)
-I love Mob's understated, polite "someone could get hurt" responses to the other guy's over-the-top dramatic boasting and rage
-"Top of Teru's head, 0%" rofl rofl rofl
-Mob realizing Teru hates him because he recognizes the feeling that without his psychic powers, he's nothing, just an average loser
-"From my perspective, you're totally average" BRUTAL
-The numbers ticking up as he gets strangled
-his punch rofl
-the flashback where he exploded and even hurt his brother, and then back to his face now and just the quiet "I'm going to change."
-makes it to 92 and then passes out without having exploded
-???%
-the glowing eyes and the explosions and a horror of "what is happening to him" combined with the totally ridiculous figure of naked, half-bald Teru
-"Oh. I guess I'm actually just an average person," with a tone of almost relief and peace
-Mob realizing he didn't change Sad Sad Sad
-Reaching 100% and just curling up on the ground sobbing then putting the school back together as a resistance against himself
-he went and looked for Dimple after all
-"I'm sorry for that time." "You mean when you got carsick and threw up into the hood of my jacket" Laughing
-he says didn't hurt him after all, but if that's true why did his hand tighten on the doorknob like that
-"that wasn't Nii-san." Denial or...?

- Reigen puffs out his cheeks and makes an old-man voice for the seance
- "If it's self defence, is it okay to shave their head, rip off their clothes, destroy their pride, cause them to lose all their friends and destroy their school?" Poor Mob Laughing
- And again, Reigen telling him to remember the positives and don't suppress his powers
- Poor Mob, getting harassed by girls because of his psychic powers
- Reigen's lack of power is explained away by having "Spiritual Power" instead of "Psychic Power"
- I love Musashi's extreme stares, like he's a 1970s sentai superhero
- Ritsu sees Mob getting violently apologized to and thinks the delinquents are actually threatening him
- "You won't find a totally normal and simple middle schooler on this planet."
- "Don't try to act like your brother", meaning, stand out and be special instead of being part of the mob
- Her efficiency rate is 62% Laughing
- And their powers are less useful than a 1 dollar lighter and e-mail
- Shinji sleeping on his bags of trash as he struggles to keep up with his sibling
- Mob accidentally always bends his spoons like nothing and Ritsu's just watching this because the guy at the Research Facility struggles to do it and Ritsu can't even do that
- And Ritsu almost seems to resent being considered more talented in a normal fashion when he can't do anything psychic
- "The praise others lavish on you doesn't fit who you are"
- Framing the delinquent
- All while he's working out with Musashi to try and better his muscles Sad
- The students are so easily willing to pin it on Onigawara because he's an easy target as a delinquent

-Mob told Ritsu he'd be psychic too Sad
-"Dad, when did you learn to speak Japanese so well?" Laughing
-Reigen is so bad at being a conman, how the fuck does he pull it off???
-Mob confiding in Reigen about his powers going out of control
-Oh shit, Reporter spilled the beans to Telepathy Club girl
-Reigen's powers are spiritual, not psychic, how is Mob so gullible
-"Do not involve him in this. BEGONE!" Laughing I love how overly serious and sincere and supportive the bodybuilders are!
-"You won't find a totally simple and normal middle schooler anywhere on the planet." This show knows what it's talking about
-Ritsu being an exceptional person trying to act like an unexceptional person to be exceptional like him.
-Mob lies to Telepathy Club girl about the creepy hoodied ESPer
-"Did Mitsuura-san do something to all of you" to give them powers, and everyone thinks he's asking if he creeps on kids rofl
-Ritsu recognizing that it's a childish pipe dream but he's still interested :/
-Student council president's room of trash
-Their crazy "tired of everyone putting labels on me that don't match what I feel inside" rampage of recorder parts everywhere rofl
-the delinquent's worried about ruining his record of never being late or missing class, not very good at being a delinquent, is he? Smug
-Going pencil-drawn when he loses it
-the spoon's mangled! combined with Ritsu thinking it wasn't Mob about the incident when they were kids, has he always had psychic powers he's suppressed knowledge of??
-Ritsu can see Dimple!! And Dimple's not destroyed!

I really like how deeply this show gets into wanting specialness, it really gets at the meat of so many sides of how it feels so it's super-relatable from all angles, Mob struggling to reach something that he really wants in spite of his own failings and not even always knowing what that would be, while having what should be the ultimate specialness but it doesn't seem meaningful or give him the spark and connection he craves; Ritsu desperately wanting the one thing he can never have (except maybe he does) enough that it's starting to twist into something that could be bad; Teru furiously throwing his one special thing around to defend the lack he feels underneath it; and then Reigen, who they haven't really gotten into but so far seems like he basically accepts he's not special but tricks the world into letting him live as if he is anyway, simultaneously taking advantage of others but in this weird, vaguely benevolent, self-accepting way.

Yeah, this was the episode where I really noticing that trend. Like something a little deep was actually going on here and it wasn't just a psychic variation of One Punch Man

I agree. There are all these moments sprinkled throughout the show where it goes beyond the typical action-comedy and you feel like you're suddenly learning some valuable life lessons.

Spoiler:
I swear, Reigen is simultaneously the best and worst conman I've ever seen, and I don't even know how that's possible.

- Ritsu's powers only work when he's emotionally disturbed
- And Dimple's dangling the idea that Ritsu could become more powerful than Mob :nono:
- POSSESSION :nono:
- But he's too weak for him to control the body
- Corruption and guilt fueling his powers, and his powers in turn making him noticed by people who would appreciate it

Spoiler:

-White T. Poison Laughing
-Ritsu doesn't even know what Dimple is but he still immediately tries to beat the crap exorcise him Laughing
-guilt making his powers release could fit with him being the one who destroyed those bullies, if he felt guilty that Mob was getting beaten up trying to protect him
-Ritsu getting scary, but it's not clear how much of it is Dimple's possession starting to have an effect and how much is just the combo of guilt and power running wild
-TOP OF TERU'S HEAD 150% rofl
-Ritsu assuming Teru's like the crappy espers he met and trying to pick a fight
-"his brain was so developed" rofl
-He says he wants to get stronger so he won't lose to anyone, and it flashes to Mob. It's not "anyone except my brother" anymore
-Trying to con the conman Shiny/thrilled I love Reigen
-"Con artists really are terrible people." "Yeah." Laughing
-Ritsu went along with it even though he knew it was just being an asshole as stress relief, because he was tired of himself
-"I've obtained a much bigger world." Shudder
-DON'T THREATEN THE BODYBUILDER, YOU ASSHOLE!!!
-Ritsu taking out the gangs like Teru
-And then he's fine with the student council president getting beaten up because he deserves it, Mob really needs to have a talk with his little brother before he loses all humanity
-The scene where he just shows up in the president's garbage-filled room to talk, then coldly says the puppet's been broken was the worst of all
-Oh phew, I thought he was going to destroy Dimple there, which even though Mob nearly did it casually would have been an even worse sign for Ritsu
-Oh no, Evil Hoodie ESPer!
-The way he's being so evil and reveling in the freedom of it while fully aware that it's pointless and he feels shitty about it is both creepy and feels totally genuine
-"I've obtained loss," loss that's an overwhelming limitllessness and the blue sky, in contrast with the blue sky and feeling of peace from Teru when Mob had totally beaten him and he realized he was ordinary, the opposite kind of loss
-MOB!!!

Spoiler:

-Mob won't believe Ritsu beat up all those people :/
-Ritsu's getting all dark and dramatic about having psychic powers, and Mob's just like "congratulations! Shiny/thrilled"
-he protected himself by believing his fear of Mob and insecurity was admiration Sad
-Their supportive, affectionate relationship is based in them never being able to have a normal sibling fight because Ritsu couldn't defend himself if Mob loses control, this episode is heartbreaking
-"Now I've just lost all interest," that should be the most brutal bit of all. But Mob's immediately sure it's a lie. For being so malleable and naive, Mob sure seems to have his shit together when it really matters
-The way it upsets Ritsu so much to see Mob humbly apologizing to the beaten people
-Emotion meter only at 7% and not rising
-Mob's meter rising crazily at his brother being hurt, compared to how totally calm and gentle he was when Ritsu was viciously saying everything to hurt him
-only a moment of hesitation about using his powers against others, again, he's totally on top of what's important and what's not
-fuck, Purple Hoodie just ripping through his defences and genuinely kicking the crap out of him, it's so brutal after getting used to seeing him being smashed through brick walls without a scratch
-Even the gang members are scared for him
-Ritsu comes through for him
-After being beaten to a pulp without reacting, one punch in Ritsu's face makes him hit 100% while fully conscious
-God, I love how they animate his 100%s, it's so expressive like nothing else, it's fantastic at conveying the emotion overflow and the nearly inhuman sense of power
-the fact that he's wearing a white t-shirt is the thing that makes the gangs think he's White T. Poison, not the incredible power rofl
-Reigen judges other con-men irresponsible Laughing
-Aroma Runaway Express rofl And she's sparkling afterwards and had her hair done!
-Mob could brush it off in the moment when Ritsu was goading him, but now what he said hits him
-team-up to investigate/fight the evil psychic group!

Spoiler:

- Teru tries to lead Mob into asking for his help, Mob thinks of the Body Improvement Club instead rofl
- "That kid's probably gonna go through some harsh torture." Cut to two teenagers waterboarding him
- "Why don't we let him have a sip of water." MOB rofl
- The scar is kind of like a Yakuza tattoo
- Whoa fuck, I didn't remember the Kaito guy getting stabbed
- Technique means nothing against absolute power
- Ritsu never bothered to learn their names :nono:
- Dramatically using a melted spoon to pick the lock rofl
- "I'm nowhere near as good as you guys" Laughing
- Freaky-ass Dimple when he possess someone
- I like how the voice actor changes to a more villainous sounding voice when he's possessing someone
- "We don't have time" Mob beats him in an instant

Spoiler:

-Teru joining with Mob b/c he'll have to fight Claw someday and Mob's his fighting chance
-The guy who fought Mob last episode gives a thoughtful analysis of why today's guy will easily torture Mob, and it cuts immediately to them waterboarding him Laughing
-Mob doesn't understand how torture works Laughing
-Teru explaining the situation to Scar guy, telling him to talk and he's like "I did, that's how you have all the information you just told me!"  
-the crazy character designs of all the bad guys were pretty funny
-oh good, the death was fake, I was thinking that seemed a little dark for this show
-the psychic kids' over-dramatic shouting to do tiny things with their powers
-I like that even though Ritsu's totally justified in attacking the guards to escape, and it seems like his power-mad evil thing was kind of interrupted by everything that happened last episode, you get a sense of darkness in it, that he's happy to have a good excuse to keep beating people up but sidestep the fact that he's been beating people up for the hell of it.
-he wasn't sure if he'd be able to work his powers now
-Dimple has to remind Mob that he should think too rofl
-ineffectually trying to punch his way into the ESPer's brain Laughing
-Mob when he's got no time to play around is terrifying
