This week we get a very action orientated episode in which the two demons; Tamayo and Yushiro attack Tanjiro and his companions under order or Muzan. Who was helpfully compared to Michael Jackson to me by someone on Twitter. And now that’s all I can see.
While the mysterious webcomic artist known only as ONE is much better known for One Punch Man, his second best known work is probably the better of the two. As much as I enjoy One Punch Man for its insane action spectacle and sense of parody. Mob Psycho 100 was actually always a better show in my books.
The first season aired in the summer of 2016, and it’s been a long two and a half year until we got a second season of it. And only one episode in, it already feels worth the wait.
This would have made a real interesting pilot, had it been a Syfy original series. It has all the hallmarks of a high concept science fiction series which spent its limited budget on a stronger cast in favour of better visual effects. But as the main character’s voiceover confirmed the heavy handed themes of the movie, I realised I was probably better off.
