Crunchyroll Acquires ‘Mob Psycho 100’ Season 3
Crunchyroll has landed the streaming rights to the third season of Mob Psycho 100, which will premiere on the anime streamer later this year.
Adapted from the award-winning manga by writer-illustrator ONE (One Punch Man), Mob Psycho 100 follows Shigeo Kageyama, aka “Mob,” an awkward young boy who’s also an “esper,” possessing mighty psychic powers. Despite attempts to live out a normal routine by suppressing his ESP, his everyday life is anything but — especially when his emotions spike to a level of 100%. While most of his peers are preoccupied with middle school minutiae, Mob is forced make deeply consequential choices as he contends with false espers, evil spirits, and shadowy organizations.
The series’ new season is directed by Takahiro Hasui, who also directed its second season, as well as season three of My Hero Academia, SK8 the Infinity, and more. Kenji Kawai – composer of Ip Man, Ghost in the Shell, Death Note – scored the new season.
Character designs were provided by Yoshimichi Kameda (One Punch Man, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood), with animation produced by BONES, the outfit behind My Hero Academia, SK8 the Infinity, Space Dandy, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and Soul Eater.
Seasons 1 and 2 of Mob Psycho 100 are currently available to stream on Crunchyroll, which will simulcast the series’ new season from Japan in both its subtitled and dubbed versions, across over 200 countries and territories internationally — including North America, Central America South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and CIS.
