Major Similarities Between Mob Psycho 100 and Hinamatsuri

1. Pick On Someone Your Own Size!

Mob Psycho 100 and Hinamatsuri share many commonalities, but the most notable is that our main male characters, Shigeo “Mob” Kageyama and Nitta, are two rough and tough-looking guys who must come to terms with the supernatural because these powers will aid them further down the road. Mob and Hina have extraordinary powers but are humbled by humanity, learning and growing to please and impress their counterpart. Our characters demonstrate a fascinating relationship, portraying personality traits that are very much alike. The wild antics in Mob Psycho 100 and Hinamatsuri make for an amusing viewing experience.

2. It’s All In The Mind

Mob Psycho 100 and Hinamatsuri are both entertaining anime capturing a similar comedic style about superpowers and fighting. Because their abilities aren't perfected, Mob and Hina cause a lot of chaos and destruction, making each episode more intense and exciting. Action sequences are phenomenal and overly exaggerated to ensure how extraordinary life is with supernatural powers.

Furthermore, Saki’s trials don’t end here, as she is also in love with her best friend’s brother, a very popular idol, Mihiro Mikage. When Saki discovers that her mother used to be a magical girl, she learns that this ability passed onto her. With the help of a Yakuza-like mascot character named Kokoro, Saki can transform into "Magical Girl Ore" to fight cute monsters who threaten to kidnap Mohiro. Unfortunately, her magical girl form is that of a burly, muscular man in a small, cute, girlish uniform. How embarrassing!
