What is it?
The 2019 Japanese anime (animated) TV show Mob Psycho 100 II (Season 2), and the season 2 OVA episode Mob Psycho 100: The Spirits And Such Consultation Office’s First Company Outing ~A Healing Trip That Warms The Heart~.
What is it about?
This is how Funimation describes this anime TV show:
After facing the members of Claw, Mob’s life returns to normal.
It’s back to school, back to the body improvement club, and back to…running for student council president?!
Mob’s friend convinces him to run for the position and things go about as well as expected—as in not well at all.
But a love letter in his locker could change that!
Can this totally ordinary psychic face his own feelings?
This is how MyAnimeList describes this anime OVA episode:
Mob, Reigen, Dimple, and the newest member of the Spirits and Such Consultation Office staff, Serizawa, take a trip up to a secluded hot spring called Ibogami Hot Springs in Zebra Prefecture.
Reigen happened to get a request from the matron there to discover the truth behind the strange rumors going around there and save the inn.
Ritsu and Teru also join in on this trip and the six of them head out on this super relaxing trip to the hot spring.
But on their way there, Reigen and Serizawa start nodding off on the train and somehow get sucked into an eerie parallel world…
It is like they do not want people to watch this season or something because there is not even an English dub trailer for this season yet, it has not appeared on Toonami yet, and there are not many reviews for it on YouTube yet.
Mob Psycho (Season 1) had a better opening theme song and opening credits, I enjoyed the fights more, and I probably liked it better overall than season 2.
Season 2 was not bad, it had more action that was more over-the-top (which I did not like as much as the more grounded and brutal fights in season 1), there were some positive messages, some character growth, and more focus on life and relationships.
This season was like One Punch Man (Season 2) where I liked One Punch Man (Season 1) better even though season 2 was not bad, but Mob Psycho 100 II (Season 2) was possibly better than One Punch Man (Season 2).
The OVA episode was a bit better than I had expected, and it made me laugh at times.
It was better than the last several OVAs that I have seen for several other anime TV shows recently.
