You can watch the trailer here:
The trailer shows clips from the first two seasons of the anime and shows Ritsu’s development from admiring brother, fearful brother, envious brother and finally to loving brother. Ritsu’s relationship with his older brother Mob has never been easy from his point of view. Ever since they were children, Ritsu admired Mob’s telekinesis abilities until that admiration turned to envy. When Mob uses his psychic powers to save his brother but accidentally injures him, Ritsu begins to fear Mob.
Eventually, Ritsu begins to hate his brother for his superior abilities and his desire to gain psychic powers at all costs. When Ritsu eventually gains psychic powers (with a little help from Ekubo), he discovers that it’s not all it’s supposed to be. Later, when Mob still saves his brother and shows how worried he was even after Ritsu claimed to hate him, his feelings of hatred towards his brother shifted back to love and admiration.
On the other hand, he always felt guilty from Mob’s point of view for accidentally hurting Ritsu while trying to save him with his powers, and vowed never to use his powers against humans because of that. Mob never realized how contradictory his younger brother was about his lack of psychic powers and how he harbored envy of Mob until he gained his own powers. When Mob discovered that Ritsu “hated” him, he took things in stride, believing that he deserved this hatred for hurting him in the past, but still ended up showing his caring, love, and concern towards his younger one Brothers.
