Anime Review: Mob Psycho III

Hey Gym N Japan fam! As promised last week - here is our first review of the year on Mob Psycho III.

As always we will try not to spoil too much but be warned that if you haven't watched the latest season we advise that you do so before reading further. It is a great show and we highly recommend it!



In short this is about a high school student named Shigeo Kageyama who has psychic powers that he doesn’t like using for various reasons. Although this show is about these abilities and sick ass fight scenes - it has a deeper meaning which we will discuss later. This season is the final season of the series and does a really good job of wrapping up the entire storyline.

There are some really good fights, with the season basically being broken into 2 short arcs. There is love, action, betrayal and friendship all in this final season which shows us why we love the simple Shigeo so much.


MAL Rating

Mob Psycho III is the third and final season of the Mob Psycho manga adaptation. The anime finished recently in December 2022 and was as good as ever!

This season was rated on MAL at 8.75 and ranked 40th of all time which is a tell tail sign of how great this anime is and it’s not even the highest rated season…

Although we are focusing on the third season, here are the ratings of the previous seasons and manga for reference.

Mob psycho 100 manga: 8.61

Mob psycho 100 season 1: 8.49

Mob psycho 100 season 2: 8.81



Oooft! If we didn’t mention the sick ass animation then we’d be considered criminals. Animation that is bright and colourful has been the focal point of all seasons and this is no different. Overall the animation felt like it was of extremely high quality, which the producers of the show have done throughout every season of this series. The art style seems so simple yet super on point with the flow and vibe of this anime.

Animation 9/10 ( not quite demon slayer level but still great!)



This season probably didn’t have as big fights because the focus of it slightly changed to the deeper meaning to the story. As mentioned before, the season is broken into 2 acts basically. For fights, the first half was great, with the second part being a little more in the realm of developing the connection with us, the viewers, as the story made its conclusion. This season definitely did have some great fight scenes with some sick animation but there weren't as many as previous seasons.


Character Development

Now we are into the main part of this season - the character development. This season had a massive focal point on this with the main message being: accepting yourself, letting go of the past and moving forward no matter what.

We get so caught up on hanging on to the past and also caught looking too far into the future. We live here, now, in the present, so we need to remember to take each day as it comes, slowly moving forward to those future goals, but ever forgetting to cherish each moment we live in now.

For Shigeo he struggled to accept who he was and didn’t even like his powers that much… even tho we know he’s a beast. He basically thought that he had to win his crush over by not using these powers and be himself (which wasn’t really his real self in a way). By the end of the season we see all his internal thinkings, reflection and eventually an acceptance of his power and ‘real’ self #spoiler. It also shows how many people he has become friends with who are there to help him out when he is struggling. Although it has ended - we can see they may do a spin off in the future because it is such a cool and interesting world.


Anime Pacing /Adaptation of Manga

The pacing of the anime was on point. At no point in this final season did it feel like the animators or producers were trying to quickly wrap up the storyline or jump to the conclusion. The story progressed very naturally and never felt as though we were left empty needing more or as though it was missing something. We are now sad to see this series now complete and can only pray that it gets a spin off!!


Opening/ Closing Themes

The opening is called “1” by Mob Choir.

The opening song and animation is quite upbeat and bright. It is similar to the openings in the previous seasons (which were created by the same artist). The intro itself doesn't stand out for us and not a song we play on repeat, however, it is still a pretty good intro in comparison to others.

The closing theme is called “Cobalt” by Mob Choir.

The closing theme is a lot darker with lots of blacks and dark blues. The animation is more of a painted vibe than the crispy animation seen which isn't all that bad. It is your typical ending theme with a see you soon vibe (lil depressing) - there must be a science here that invites you to the next episode so you feel better idk? Either way not a bad ending but not one we watch on repeat..


Overall enjoyment / Our ratings

We both found this season of Mob Psycho to be a really enjoyable season. It had everything you would expect and want from the Mob series, concluding the series well and not really leaving us wanting more. With a show like this, they could forever make new evil spirits and bad guys, so the length of the series and how they delivered that to us was exceptional.

Overall rating: 9/10

Highly recommend.
