Shigeo Kageyama is an average middle school boy, nicknamed "Mob" (meaning "background character") for lacking a sense of presence. Although he looks like an inconspicuous person, he is in fact a powerful esper. As he grows older, Mob realizes that his psychic powers are strengthening and becoming more dangerous. To avoid his power getting out of control, he constantly lives a life under an emotional shackle. Mob wants to live a normal life just like the others, but a barrage of trouble keeps coming after him. With the suppressed emotions growing inside Mob little by little, his power threatens to break through its limits.


Shigeo Kageyama "Mob" — The main protagonist, is an eighth grade Esper with powerful psychic abilities who attends Salt Middle School. He is not good at reading the atmosphere, and since childhood, has rarely felt or displayed intense emotion. He thinks his power is not necessary in his life, so he avoids using it. He suppresses his emotions to keep his power in control, but when the percentage of his accumulated feelings reaches 100, he is overcome by the strongest emotion he is feeling at the time and unleashes the full extent of his powers. He works at Reigen's spirit counsel for 300 yen an hour.

Reigen Arataka — Mob's master and mentor, a self-proclaimed psychic who owns the "Talk About Spirits Agency", which is cheap compared to competitors. He has no psychic powers at all, but uses his excellent skills in persuasion, speech, and perception to convince others he does. He is clever and agile, claiming to have a greenbelt of Shaolin boxing. Reigen solves his clients' problems with his manipulation skills, as well as other unusual talents like massage and video editing; however, if he finds something genuinely supernatural he'll call in Mob to deal with it. Even though he is a fraud, he treats Mob's inner turmoil very seriously, and gives him pertinent suggestions.

Dimple — An upper class evil spirit who, at the beginning of the series, has established a religion/cult called "LOL" in order to become a god worshiped by people. After his defeat by Mob, Dimple's power falls off remarkably, and Mob comes to regard him as reasonably harmless. Dimple thinks Mob might be a great springboard to godhood, so he stays with Mob in order to exploit him. Dimple claims to be Mob's partner, and encourages him to use his psychic powers for personal gain. He can possess the bodies of others and release the full potential of his host, but he tries to avoid breaking the host's body.

Ritsu Kageyama — Mob's younger brother, a 7th grader at Salt Middle School, who is clever and competent, excelling in both academics and athletics. Ritsu is handsome, popular among girls and is also a member of the Student Council. The only thing he's lacking is psychic power. Because Mob is a strong Esper and Ritsu witnessed his immense power while growing up, Ritsu has always had an inferiority complex and an obsessive longing for psychic power of his own.

Teruki "Teru" Hanazawa — Black Vinegar Middle School's "hidden boss", known to most as Teru. Also a strong Esper, he is accustomed to using his power freely in daily life and excels at academics and sports. Coupled with his handsome looks, he is very popular. He originally held scorn for people without psychic power, calling them "commoners", and saw Mob as a rival to be crushed. After he is defeated and lectured by Mob, his perspective on psychic power changes, and he becomes more friendly to others.
