Why is Mob Psycho 100 so underappreciated in comparison to One Punch Man?
>>
Murata
>>
less memes
>>
>>150556821
Mob is cute!
>>
>>150556719
As someone who was a latecomer to both and started with OPM, I must say that OPM is easier to jump into the middle of.

The plot is simpler, the fights tend to be flashier, and the gags are more standalone and not in-jokey.

Mob's story is clearly better, but it's not conspicuously so from a glance at a random chapter.

Also, Mob is fujoshit bait while there are a couple legit waifus in OPM thanks to Murata.
>>
>>150557070
Tbh MP100 has a better opening.

>>
>>150556719
OPM is easier for normies and plebs to jump right in, as it's pretty much a parody of the old super-hero shenanigans.

MP100 on the other hand not only may first come across as a mere knockoff of OPM, but also has much more relateable / realistic commentary of people's diversity, crowd mentality, peer pressure, and various insecurities about yourself. It may hit a bit too close to some, especially if you're just looking for simple, easy to digest fun to watch.

Notice most normies only got into OPM from the Murata version or the anime. They basically don't care about what it's suppose to be about only that Saitama is strong and acts funny. It's apparent as fuck when you see people saying "I wanna see so and so fight" and actually complaining about Genos jobbing (even though that's the whole point of his character).

With Mob Psycho there isn't a normie friendly version. You have to deal with ONEs art (which has actually gotten much better) as well as a more complex and slow burning coming of age story. There aren't as many "cool" characters and it isn't all about who fights who

The true mark of good taste is knowing

MP100 > ONE OPM >> Murata OPM
>>
>>150557812
I don't feel like Murata's version strays away from the message from One's version. It's just the version that bandwagoning retards go too so it's the one that you always see people misinterpreted.
>>
>>150557812

MURATA OPM > shit > 8 years old sketches > ONE's manga

You wouldn't even heard of Mob shitco if not for Murata faggot.
>>
>>150557892
It's not that it strays necessarily, it's that the filler fights kind of miss the point. Yeah OPM always had lots of fights, but they were never the point. Fights with the other heroes were more functional, as in they were because they were necessary to move the story along. Murata seems to be adding in more of them simply because he loves drawing cool shit, which I appreciate because he's an amazing artist, but is getting tiring. I didn't read it for the fights
>>
>>150558138
>You wouldn't even heard of Mob shitco if not for Murata faggot.
WTF are you even talking about? I got into Mob when I started reading ONE's OPM and saw he had done other stuff. This was way before Murata OPM even started

You have shit taste. Deal with it

>>150558167

I don't know how it goes in Japan, but what determines if something will succeed in America is 1. how interesting and easily explainable the premise is 2. how much is resembles western media and cliches. This is why SnK was huge here.
>>
I really enjoy both and don't really care about the stupid casuals who latch on to whats trending.

Do i win?
>>
Because the walmart version of OPM has less quality than the real OPM by Murata
>>
Did mob psycho sell well?
>>
>>150557070
Another reason can be that Mob Psycho 100 keeps One's style, and that makes it very hard to get in. That's why the manga is not as popular as it should be, the style alienates heavily a lot of newcomers, while Murata's god-tier style catches your eye instantly.

>>
>>150558350
Come on, m8. It doesn't matter how godlike One becomes in his writing, his art is ABSOLUTE trash. Inoue shits on his work with his throwaway panels. One's OPM is inferior to Murata's because, though the forementioned is more pure, One truly, at the moment, lacks an essential aesthetical sensibility. It's been more than 20 years since Watchmen and Kingdom Come, and Berserk, Jojo, and Vagabond have been published for decades. That shit is not acceptable any-fucking-more. One can stick his G-Pen up his ass and go read Scott McCloud's books.

>lacks an essential aesthetical sensibility
On the contrary. Despite being clunky as fuck, he has his own unique aesthetic which is instantly recognisable. Like or hate it, most artist lights years better than him in a technical sense can barley distinguish themselves from each other. You could almost compare ONE's art to a more alternative manga artists like Tsuge Yoshiharu. I guess it just gets confusing because he makes mainstream battle manga.

>One can stick his G-Pen up his ass and go read Scott McCloud's books.
Why would he? His panel layouts are completely fine and Murata rarely changes them in the redraw. He knows how to make comics, he'd be better off just refining his technical skills to appease more people. I think it's also important to note that while he's still no where near Murata's level, he has been making big improvements in the latests chapters of Mob.

Though true that One has improved a lot in Mob, and he has an eye for kinematics of a panel layout, visually he is still cancer. I love his humour (Though not very refined), I love his scripts, and his characters and themes, but he draws ugly. Yes, not all must beautiful. Not all characters must be copies of Adonis, but he draws ugly, and when I mean ulgy, I mean unpolished. Even Joan Cornella draws more appealing, even though his drawings are shady as hell. Look at the "Boys Club" webcomic, where Pepe comes from: A lot of it's art is very surrealist, yet is still well drawn. THAT'S what I meant with an aesthetic sensibility: To draw good (Which, in fair point, is a very broad concept.) Also, about his style: Look at Inoue's, Yukimura's, Araki's, Miura's, Hiramoto's styles. One (An individual, not "One") must be blind to confuse their style. Developing style is about that sensibility, and while generic styles are more marketable (Reason why Cartoon Network is filled with the CalArts thin line style) a true artist brands his work with an unique aesthetic. This may be pushing the argument too far, but look at DeGoya: His shit is terrifying, but is very well done. Or Bosch. Doesn't matter how good One understands the kinematics of Manga, which he does and is very good at, plenty also do and do it better (We3 and Watchmen are master thesis on Kinematics of Comics). His style has charisma, but his linework has no excuse. That's why I mentioned McCloud.

Thats a completely fair critique. Saying stuff like 'his art is complete cancer' just comes off a bit knee-jerk. The only thing i disagree with you on is that We3 is a master thesis on the kinematics of comics.

I like both but I prefer Mob Psycho, The characters are overall more interesting and OPM can get a little boring at times.

While the constant 99% and leak emotion to go crazy is pretty boring as well, The fighting is way more intense in MB 100 which is more enjoyable.

I think Mob can be better for the fact that ONE can add a little bit of genuine drama alongside the gags.

Mob is allowed to be emotionally vulnerable, and we get different moods through the story.

OPM is pretty great and also has emotional moments, like Mumen Rider against Sea King, but the story is more for laughs and HYPE. While Mob has laughs, HYPE and "he's so innocent and just wants to be happy, man ;_;"

Mob Psycho is better than One Punch Man, but that doesn't mean OPM is bad. I feel like Reigen and Genos do much more for their respective shows than the actual main character by a long shot too.

You do the reps same way as for any other exercise.
Everyday is a goal but it's not like you'll be able to do it right away.
Initially you might want to look for a solution that hardens the skin or use a medical latex glove until you'll get used to it.

Alright, so I'll use a picture to help explain Genos and Reigen. In this GIF file, in OPM's case, Genos is the human feeding the puppy, and the puppy is Saitama. The pudding is just pudding, it serves no real purpose but Genos gives it to Saitama anyway. However, without the puppy Genos doesn't serve much of a purpose, as the GIF would never have been created without the puppy/Saitama.

In Mob Psycho 100's case, Mob is the human, and the puppy. Reigen is the pudding. He provides direction and sustenance for Mob, but only if Mob chooses to feed himself the pudding(Reigen).
>>
>>150567038
Understand how he got so strong?
>>
>>150567038
He's going about everything wrong. He could be unpredictable as fuck with traps and hidden weapons and shit all over his body, but no, more power more speed more flamethrowers. His problem is that he doesn't havehave anything other than brute power attacks and can't fight intelligently, so if an enemy is even a little bit faster or stronger than him, he's going up the river. He doesn't use his cyborg body as well as he should, and he doesn't use the resources his limited imagination gives him as well as he could.
>>
>>150567057
Wow, that's actually really good.

It's easier to get into, even if MPO is better than OPM.

>>150567059
Then what?
He can't even train organically.
Might as well ask professor to overclock his brain for better reaction.
The power of his melee will forever rely on his mechanical build.
And to my understanding it's kind of hard to build anything close to Saitama or un-limited Garou.

TL;DR to defeat Saitama you probably need a machine that rips space-time itself with pinpoint accuracy.
Old trick: if you can't destroy the entity - destroy the space it occupies.
>>
>>150567181
I mean, if he gets meat, he can actually train himself rather that getting upgrades. I thought the conclusion he was coming to was that his cyborg body couldn't compete with strength born from hard work like the others have.

Nah, you just need to throw him into the void of space again. The odds of hitting the moon twice are small.

The concept of OPM is a much easier sell when recommending. It's pretty novel, but it is very enticing to see how the concept is realized. The way the series brands itself is pretty fucking bold; it doesn't mess around, straight to the point, it takes what would normally be a negative trait for a show and wears it right on it's sleeve.

MP100 on the other hand is pretty vague. When people first hear of the name I'm sure this is what they think:
"Okay I guess there is a guy named Mob and he is a psychic, or maybe he is just crazy (psycho). I don't know what the 100 means. Oh, it is made by the OPM guy, sounds neat."

I thought it was about the Mob. As in organized crime.

Keep reading until the end anon, it's a great arc. It'll also become much vlearer how inevitable and necessary it was after re-reading the manga from the start while paying extra attention to each and every single of Mob and Reigen's interactions.

I dont think the narrative and humor of mobpsycho were good enough to match just how spectacular one punch man is. The feel scenes in one punch man were also better in my opinion. One punch man's music supported it's narrative better.

I did not find mob psycho anywhere near as good as people are making out to be. It was refreshing with this thing about mob wanting to be normal/popular and him being based when faced with delusional villains, but while it does mix it up a bit to prevent it from becoming boring it is basically just doing the same thing over and over again and given what we saw in one punch man was pretty similar (based hero who does not give a fuck versus delusional villains) i was not that impressed by it.
>>
>>150567227
didn't we cover this way back?

He can just take off his boots and throw them really fast in the opposite direction and make it back to earth.
>>
>>150568766
That's bullshit though.
He'll just introduce a shitload of spinning since it's not possible to affect center mass flatly with a throw from your hands.
>>
>>150556719
Because it didn't have anywhere near the preexisting fan-base that OPM had, which lent a lot of excitement in the show's run-up.
Because it's a show in a similar vein that came after OPM, shackling it to the consensus of the "spiritual follow-up to the original", almost like OPM's little brother.
Because it's nothing special.
Take your pick, dipshit.
>>
I dont think its meant to make sense that saitama hit the moon the author just assumed we would accept that is what happened and rather than question it be amazed by it. And since we would not question it, it would be a waste of time to explain it that could have been used on something actually interesting and entertaining.
>>
>>150568811
Yeah if he throws them one at a time sure.
Just imagine him doing the butterfly stroke but with a boot in either hand. Or throwing directly out from his center of mass or something. Plus even after using both boots he still has socks to correct his trajectory.

Ah so you weren't the anon I was replying to. nope it doesn't
It's pretty bad in the beginning but it gets gradually better; ONE's got assistants and actually gets paid for his work so it's more polished than the OPM webcomic.

Because the art's not as good and because the series is less of a parody/homage (though it still has those elements) and people aren't sure if ONE can pull off a more serious story yet.

Yes, to make manga that would set you straight.

In no way are kyon and Mob remotely the same character. Thats like the worst you could have picked.

>>
>>150576044

Murata's story and art is all of the charm.
Just look at how messy the storytelling of the ONE version of OPM is. It looked like it's fucking written by an 8 years old.
Murata fixed the art and the writing.
>>
>>150575088
>people aren't sure if ONE can pull off a more serious story yet.
Ofc they can't be sure if they don't even try to read it. While I can understand why some might be too thrown off by the art (moreso the manga than the anime; the latter looks great imo), this particular point I just can't sur seem to wrap my head around.
>>
>>150576297
The ONE version of OPM is literally a webcomic that wasn't intended to be a full series you fucking moron, it was just a little project ONE started to learn the manga drawing software he was using.
ONE still has the writing credit for SJ's OPM so to give Murata credit for the whole thing is just misrepresentative.
>>
>>150571192
Mob doesn't want a boring life, he's just a very normal sheltered kid who doesn't know WHAT he wants out of life.
He has a very simple worldview and experiences that prohibit him from using his psychic powers, but other than that he's a much more solidly written character than most shonen heroes who have wanted to be the Hokage forever and end up Hokage because plot.

Also to act like Mob isn't a realistic character is to completely ignore Reigen
>>
>>150576658
>replying to bait

You are wrong. Check the interviews and you'll read there that Murata writes stuff and he shows it to ONE and then ONE approves it. That doesn't mean ONE wrote it. Also check Murata's stream and he asks the viewers for ideas what to do next.
ONE is literally just sitting on his ass approving shit he didn't write.

You could but if it already has been a while since you have seen the anime or you have forgotten a few things, then I suggest to read it from the start again. Makes the following arcs more impactful for you. Its not that much anyways, have fun.

Wh-

Why can't it not be intended for either and just be a funy story you dumb cunt

I only watched the anime versions of both and Mob was way more entertaining than OPM.

No matter ONE's intentions (which were probably just fine), the fact remains that both series get hit with fujoshit fanart, but definitely more-so with Mob.

Mogami was right

>>150577114
That's only true for Muratas filler though

The only reason why Boros fight was hype was because of Murata. The webcomic fight is literally just consecutive punch > serious punch > end. Boros didn't even put up a fight.
