Mob Psycho III Episode 2 Summary
The students in Mob’s class have already been given various assignments for the cultural festival, which is only two weeks away. When it turns out that Inukawa, Haruaki, Sagure and Kageyama haven’t gotten roles yet, the four classmates are tasked with making costumes for the haunted house. At the same time, Ritsu worries about some of the festival’s issues at the student council meeting.
Ritsu says the concert will definitely be too loud and people have to complain about the noise. He also says the idea of a cross-dressing cafe is ridiculous. But the President is sure that everything will work out in the end if the students follow the safety rules. Over the next few days, Kageyama keeps worrying that other students have made great progress while his team hasn’t done much at all.
Meanwhile, Serizawa goes to the Liquor and Such Counseling Bureau and asks Reigen for permission to go to night middle school because he wants to repeat his required classes. Reigen thinks this is a good sign and thinks that Serizawa really wants to get well, so he lets him go after 4pm. A man named Amakusa Haruaki comes into the office to talk about something important. He says he’s a real yokai hunter.
But when Amakusa tries to say who he is, he stutters and only says gibberish. This makes Reigen think he’s just another lunatic who should be ignored. Reigen tells Amakusa that he doesn’t have enough time because a customer is coming soon. After helping the client, Reigen plans to go to sleep a few hours later. But he was surprised to find that Amakusa had been waiting near the door the whole time to finally talk to him.
Amakusa tells them that he is a yokai hunter planning to pursue an evil group called Hyakki who want to bring the great yokai king back to life. After paying a lot of money, the yokai hunter changes his mind, although Reigen still isn’t interested. Mob comes to the office just in time to join the other three people who are looking for the hundred demons in town.
How does the second episode of Mob Psycho III end? Is the great Yokai King dead? Who will kill him after he comes back to life?
Mob, Serizawa and Reigen join Amakusa Haruaki in search of the spooky place where Hyakki’s army of hundred demons is plotting to bring back the great Yokai King. After much searching, Amakusa stops at a derelict building and says he can sense a small Yokai presence from there. Serizawa agrees with the claim, which is strange because Mob is still contemplating the costume design. As the four enter the building, Amakusa’s concern grows. He can tell that the Yokai are there and are probably planning to make it their base. As they keep looking around, they suddenly realize that the way they used to get there is now somehow blocked.
Serizawa sees this as a sign that if they don’t complete their task, they won’t be able to escape. Suddenly, a yokai appears behind Reigen and Amakusa sees him in time to do something. But when he hits it with his holding sword, it doesn’t hurt him and his sword just breaks in two. Serizawa is quick and uses normal exorcism methods to kill the yokai instantly. The four then realize that there are hundreds of them around them. Despite still thinking about the cultural festival, Mob fights back along with Serizawa.
The many Yokai attacking them are no match for the two. Amakusa suddenly says that the four hell lords of Hyakki are there now and that they also brought back the great yokai king. Serizawa and Mob kill all four quickly and easily. An angry Yokai King suddenly turns into a giant monster and wants to get back at the people who killed Hyakki members. But Serizawa and Mob seem to be able to kill him without much trouble. Mob gets his haunted house costume idea from the Yokai King at the culture festival.
The show is about a kind hearted but shy middle school student with psychic powers on the plane of the end of the world. The first episode of this season goes back to the show’s simple roots, with Mob helping Reigen with his psychic affairs.
Episode 2 keeps this simple format, but like Mob, there’s always more to it than meets the eye. So, without further ado, Mob Psycho 100 spoiler alert!
In this episode, Mob helps Reigen with a client and they end up fighting some kind of demon. This usually happens in the first few episodes of each season.
This customer, a yokai hunter, is a lot of fun to hang out with because he’s nowhere near as mean as most of Reigen’s other customers. He’s a fool and a bully, but he’s also very funny. Thinking that the scammer Reigen is his friend, he uses catchphrases to sound smarter, which Reigen immediately addresses to him in a very funny way. Reigen is always funny because he points out other people’s bad things while he’s doing the same things himself.
The action set piece fighting a bunch of yokai isn’t very different from what we’ve seen before, but Mob Psycho 100 always makes these fights interesting with great animations and interesting inner monologues from each character throughout the fight . This time, Mob effortlessly flicks away 100ft tall demons while worrying about his school’s cultural fair.

At the culture fair, we also see a lot of returning characters walking by, which is always nice. This season seems to be more school-focused, which makes sense given that mob’s minds are on school right now.

Filler or a hint of what is to come?
While this episode isn’t very deep and probably won’t make much of a difference in the rest of the season, there’s a reason it’s here, and that reason is woven into the story in small ways.
Mob is worried about his school’s carnival, but for once he can solve the problem without Reigen’s help. This shows that Mob is growing as a person and moving away from Reigen. Even at school people are praising him which is a big change from what we saw at the beginning of the show. That’s the genius of Mob Psycho 100. As big and wacky as it can get, it also manages to show big things through small, everyday things, which is in keeping with the spirit of the series.
There’s also a small post-credits scene that we won’t reveal, but it shows that Mob and the others are likely to have much bigger problems in the future. We are very excited to see it.
The third episode of Mob Psycho 100 season 3 will premiere on Crunchyroll on October 19th.
In Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 Episode 2, Mob and Reigen face a new danger, but they are not ready to fight so many ghosts. At least as unprepared as the most powerful medium in the world can be. Let’s find out where it went in this review!
Mob Psycho 100 became a worldwide sensation and an overnight success that is unlikely to be seen again in this medium. Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 or just Mob Psycho Season 3 is the third season of the show. The show is based on a manga written by One Punch Man’s writer and artist, ONE. Read the review of the last episode of the series by clicking here.
Yuzuru Tachikawa and Hasui Takahira are directing this season. Tachikawa has worked on shows like Death Parade and Bleach, and Takahira has worked on shows like My Hero Academia and SK8 the Infinite. Studio Bones is doing the show again. This is the same studio that made Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and Bungou Stray Dogs, two of the best anime shows ever made.
Intent and setting are two of the most important parts of a story that most people don’t pay attention to when judging its quality. Even if something has the most interesting story, the way it’s built or the characters it uses to tell that story can ruin it completely. But even the simplest of stories can be made better when they have interesting characters and a tight plot. The plot of this episode of Mob Psycho was the simplest ever, but it was told in a way that can only be described as impressive.
