Mob Psycho 100 II – 10 - Lost in Anime

The saying that “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men…” fits perfectly for Mob Psycho II’s Touichirou Suzuki. Ever since middle school, this powerful Esper succeeded in everything he did, all thanks to his natural magical powers.

These psychic powers only improved as time went on, causing Suzuki to rely on them more and more, giving him confidence along the way. The older he got, the more brash he became, acting the complete opposite of Mob, thinking that this power made him untouchable. This causes him to plot world domination, as he founds Claw for that purpose.

Over the next 20 years, he recruits, manipulates, and kidnaps Espers to form an army to accomplish his goal of world domination at any cost. Suzuki is the first real threat the show presents, as his fight with Mob is one that we aren’t actually sure the lovable young protagonist can actually win for once. There is also plenty of nuance to the character, as the show features plenty of backstory about his family that comes back around for a satisfying payoff in the end.
