The 2016 Japanese anime (animated) television show Mob Psycho 100 (Season 1).
What is it about?
This is how Fandom describes this anime:
Season 1, is the first season of the anime adaptation of Mob Psycho 100. Having been announced with 12 episodes in total.
The anime was simulcast on Crunchyroll, while Funimation broadcast the show’s simuldub.
The English dub was produced by Bang Zoom! Entertainment.
The series was simulcast on Animax in Southeast Asia.
The first season adapts Spring of Youth Arc to 7th Division Arc.
Kageyama Shigeo, a.k.a. “Mob,” is a boy who has trouble expressing himself, but who happens to be a powerful esper.
Mob is determined to live a normal life and keeps his ESP suppressed, but when his emotions surge to a level of 100%, something terrible happens to him!
As he’s surrounded by false espers, evil spirits, and mysterious organizations, what will Mob think?
What choices will he make?
The anime based on the original story by ONE, the idol of the webcomic world and creator of One-Punch Man, is coming your way with animation by leading animation studio Bones!
My brother GC and I had no idea what to expect from this anime television show when it appeared on Toonami.
We had never heard of it, we did not like the animation, but we got used to it.
We did not expect to like it much when we started watching it, it actually surprised us by being better and funnier than we had expected, so it was more watchable than expected.
It is not the greatest show or anything, it was alright, the main character Mob (Shigeo Kageyama) is pretty overpowered, and the battles are pretty cool and over-the-top.

Lots of people have told me this series is decent. Still haven’t watched it as I don’t like the character designs (I guess in a similar way to your concerns about the animation.)
Hello The Otaku Judge,
I guess in a way the animation does fit the tone at times, and so that helps.
This show was over pretty fast, especially compared to some things in the Toonami lineup, and so that helps but it felt a bit abrupt to me.
Thank you for commenting,
