Mob Psycho 100 Episode 008 opens with the Telepathy Club members, Mob, and Takenaka heading to Mt. Mudboat with Reigen. The car ride is miserable, Tome has a bad attitude, Mob is car sick, they miss their turn, and Reigen crashes the car into a tree. Saruta has to pee, so he a Mob (sent by Reigen) head off. After some time, Mob and Saruta don’t return. The group search for them in the forest but get they all get lost. As they head to the mountain top, Mameta forgets the spell to summon aliens and Tome has a meltdown.
At the summit, Takenaka performs the Alien Summoning ritual. Tome encourages everyone to perform the spell as well. Takenaka reveals that the author of the spell book was arrested for fraud. The spell isn’t real. When the group consider leaving Mob tells them they should summon the aliens on their own. The group joins hands and sends out a telepathic message. He summons a alien ship and three aliens beam down. The aliens beam them up to their ship. The group show the aliens games, pass times, and when it’s time to go they all give the aliens something as thanks. The aliens in turn give Tome a gem. The return to Earth leaving Mameta behind. He does return a week later though.
This episode wasn’t your typical Mob Psycho affair but I liked it. It had a lot of small comedic moments. Tome asking if Mob and Saruta were going number 2, the bickering in the car, Haruto falling during the track up the mountain, and apparently Mameta got high on something and performed naked for a stadium of aliens. Tome may have seemed ungrateful but I think she didn’t trust the guys from the Telepathy Club to care about her dreams. They never took them seriously before and she wasn’t sure they did this time.
What do you think? Did you like the little comedic moments? What about Mameta time with the aliens in the after credits? Why do you think Tome was so upset? Like and Comment.
