Mousou Telepathy Anime Will it suffer the same fate as Horimiya if its chapters are animated

Despite having very different plots, the chances of Mousou Telepathy anime getting the same treatment as Horimiya seem very high. Horimiya manga was adapted into an anime in 2021. The anime became fairly popular but manga readers had some criticisms to offer to the anime adaptation. 

If Mousou Telepathy gets an anime, it might suffer the same fate as Horimiya given the similar nature of the source material. The plots are very different but the execution is similar. Here’s a detailed account of what Mousou Telepathy anime might look like and if the adaptation will be similar to Horimiya. 

Similarities and differences between Horimiya and Mousou Telepathy

  • Mousou Telepathy is a mix of ecchi and rom-com whereas Horimiya sticks close to the romance and comedy side of things. 
  • Mousou Telepathy and Horimiya both juggle the themes of romance and slice of life. Sometimes this leads to a dragged and slow pace. 
  • The pacing of the source material is inconsistent. There are also some repetitive patterns. In Horimiya, it’s the side quests of the boys (Miyamura, Yanagi, Ishikawa, and Sengoku) whereas in Mousou Telepathy the central plot doesn’t progress as it should.

What happened with Horimiya anime

Horimiya manga had over 128 chapters. At a glance, it seems impossible to conclude the story in just 13 episodes. The anime dropped multiple chapters and skipped directly to the end. This led to a rushed pace and lousy explanations for some characters.

The manga took its time exploring the side characters. Whereas the anime dropped these developments along with some important plot points, leading to a fast-paced execution.

The anime made up for the weird pacing with fluid and visually pleasant animation. The anime adaptation is far from perfect but transferring everything as it is from one format to another isn’t always a smooth process.

A lot of content in the Horimiya manga seems like episodic adventures without directly contributing to the central plot. Incorporating those elements into anime without making it seem filler would’ve been a tough job.

Moushou Telepathy anime might get similar treatment as Horimiya as the webcomic consists of 717 pages. It’s just pure speculation but there won’t be enough source material left to cover, in case the anime doesn’t cover the entire story in one season.

The later chapters or pages of Mousou Telepathy webcomic are slow and dragged out. These chapters can easily be left out of the anime adaptation to balance out the pacing. 

It’ll still be a better transition from webcomic to anime as compared to Horimiya. At times Horimiya feels like a loose adaptation of the manga. If suffering the same fate also stands for the animation production, then it’ll be better if Mousou Telepathy gets the same treatment as Horimiya.

Though lacking, Horimiya anime wasn’t outright bad. It managed to pull in fans and became one of the most successful rom-com. The flaws were most evident to the manga readers essentially.

Mousou Telepathy has a lot of potentials to be turned into an entertaining anime. Given the pacing of the later chapters, getting Horimiya treatment will probably prove beneficial to the anime adaptation of Mousou Telepathy.
