May 2020 FotM: Psychics

Psychic spies from China (Japan?) trying to steal your mind’s elation? No worries, we say. Or actually, there is reason to worry. Spirits and strange creatures lurk around the corner. Evil organizations try to erase your memory. Moe girls try to break your pottery. Someone spoils the ending of the movie you were about to watch. There are lots of problems when psychics are involved. These supernatural humans who can read minds and bend spoons are a force to reckon with. Can they make for an entertaining viewing experience? We shall find out. The mind-bending anime we will review this month are:

  • Mob Psycho 100: A shy, overpowered psychic boy, his fraud of a mentor, and their emotionally-charged journey.

  • Hinamatsuri: A Yakuza member gets a psychic ‘daughter’ from another dimension; their lives will never be the same again.

  • The Disastrous Life of Saiki K: the world’s most powerful psychic only wants one thing: to be left alone by all the idiots around him.

  • From the New World: in a future where psychic abilities are the norm, powerful people are hiding terrible secrets.

Be sure to check out these reviews as they come out. And stay tuned for next month’s FotM, it sounds really interesting...
