‘Mob Psycho 100’ anime team from 1st season returns for 2nd run
The team who worked on the first “Mob Psycho 100” anime will be returning to create the second season of the popular show.
A “Mob Psycho 100 REIGEN ~ Miracle of the Unknown Psycho” special event held at Chiba Prefecture’s Maihama Amphitheater on March 18 introduced the returning animation team from studio BONES.
Joe Tachikawa will continue his work as director while Bonz will serve as the animation producer. Meanwhile, a report from Japanese news site Comic Natalie via Crunchyroll stated that fans of “Mob Psycho 100” can expect more action scenes in the show’s 2nd season.
“Mob Psycho 100” is a Japanese web manga comic created by ONE. It started publication on April 18, 2012. The series concluded on Dec. 22, 2017. Its story follows a psychic boy named Shigeo Kageyama who was given the nickname Mobu. The name means “background character” which refers to Mob’s lack of presence. He later discovers his psychic ability growing too powerful to control and the only way to keep it in check is to remain as emotionless as possible. Unfortunately, trouble seems to keep finding him.
While fans wait for the anime’s second season to be released, they could also check out the live action adaptation which began streaming in Netflix Japan last Jan. 12. Alfred Bayle/JB
