Enter Shigeo, aka ‘Mob’—Reigen’s student assistant whose powers keep them in business. Powers Shigeo keeps a tight lock on because when this kid’s repressed emotions reach level 100, it can unleash more psychic energy than either of them can handle!”

The manga series was written and drawn by the artist ONE, who won the 2017 Shogakukan Prize for Best Shonen Manga for his efforts.
