Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 Release Date, Finally Announced!

Mob Psycho 100, one of the remarkable anime series of the 2016 summer season, was presented to the audience with a fantastic story involving heroes and spirits with psychic powers. Its drawings were full of colorful neon colors, its dose of humor, and its seiyuu performance gained a large fan base. Mob Psycho 100 is one of the most popular anime of recent years. The anime is based on a manga series written and illustrated by the famous Japanese artist ONE. Anime adaptations of ONE’s manga, who is also the author of One-Punch Man, have always been successful. The anime series, directed by Yuzuru Tachikawa, was created by the studio Bones. We know the studio, which has made successful anime adaptations in recent years, from popular series such as Carole & Tuesday and My Hero Academia. The anime, licensed by Crunchyroll, originally aired on Tokyo MX, ytv, BS Fuji, TV Asahi Channel 1, and appeared on HBO Max and Funimation worldwide. It is wondered if the anime, which made its fans happy with its second season in 2019, will now have a third season.

Eighth-grader Shigeo “Mob” Kageyama has descended to the very depths of psychic powers at a young age, but when he realizes the potential dangers of this power he gets depressed and begins to explore ways to learn to control his power. He sees an office fighting with evil spirits on the street, and when he enters, he meets Arataka Reigen, whom he will later call “The Master”. Very impressed by Arataka Reigen’s speech, Kageyama starts working part-time in this office. Cleaning the evil spirits has now become a part of his daily life. At the same time, he tries to cope with problems such as unrequited love and socialization. As ordinary daily life continues, much stronger opponents begin to appear before the Mob, and it seems that the Mob’s power is just the tip of the iceberg.

Will there be a third season of Mob Psycho 100?

On October 19, 2021, the news that will delight fans has finally surfaced. According to the news that ONE, the author of the series, announced to his fans on Twitter, Mob Psycho 100 has been renewed for a third season! In the new season, which will be called “Mob Psycho 100 III”, the anime is going to change the director. The anime’s previous director, Yuzuru Tachikawa, takes over as executive director, leaving the director’s chair to Takahiro Hasui, who has worked as an episode director on series such as Bungou Stray Dogs and SK8 the Infinity. Apart from this change, the anime voice cast will return to their works on the new season and the third season will be animated by the Bones studio, as in the previous seasons. The news of the 3rd season of the series was greeted with enthusiasm by the fans and shortly became a trend on Twitter in Japan. A teaser also has been shared with the fans.

Actually, the news of the season 3 decision is quite surprising. The 16-volume manga series written by ONE is the main source material for the series, and much of the series was adapted in the first two anime seasons. The manga series was completed in 2017, and 91 chapters of the 101 chapters were adapted into anime’s previous seasons, and only 10 chapters remained. The remaining source material alone didn’t seem like enough for a third season, but it’s clear the creators have plans for a third season. Our guess is that we will watch a season with plenty of flashbacks along with the final chapters.

How popular is the series?

Above all, when we evaluate it in terms of popularity, everything is perfect. Blu-Ray sales were good and financially satisfying the platforms on which it is broadcast. It has a score of 98,6% compared to other anime according to Myanimelist popularity ranking. The anime is also among the best anime of 2016 on the list of the best anime by IGN with another popular series The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.

How popular an anime is in Japan affects the decisions for the new season. In general, we expect the number of followers on the official Twitter account to be above 100k for an anime to receive a new season approval. Mob Psycho 100 recently surpassed 200k followers on Twitter and is one of the most talked-about anime of all time. On the other hand, it has a strong search volume on Google worldwide.

Mob Psycho Season 3 Plotline

We watched the second season of Mob Psycho 100, the same author’s work as One Punch Man. In season 2, Shigeo Kageyama, nicknamed Arataka Reigen and Mob, continues his daily life. As the chapters progress, we examine the cases Reigen solved with the Mob’s help and witnessed an organization named Claw secretly making plans to take over the world. Subsequently, the Claw organization and its president, Suzuki Touchirou, are exposed, and a challenging struggle begins for the Mob.

The most beloved features of the 2nd season of Mob Psycho 100 are Mob’s character development and not being completely different from its rivals like Saitama in One Punch Man. Okay, Mob is still stronger than anyone else, but he needs to make an effort. It’s especially liked that after reaching 100% of Mob, it switched to “overdrive” mode and took on a completely different character. Mob was not now wimpy as before. His personality sits down, he can make his own decisions, and he strives to achieve something with determination without using his powers. It means that little Mob is no longer a character who is pushed.

In terms of its drawings and music, the anime has its successful style and will continue to do so in season 3. The resemblance of Mob to Saitama is obvious. Just like in Season 2, mostly absurd, but high-quality drawings are waiting for us. Also, Mob’s new fights will be worth watching. Psychic powers, objects are flying around waiting for the fans. In addition, Mob’s fights leave the door open to whether they are defeated, unlike Saitama’s, which is one of the items that will be answered for the 3rd season.

Where should I start reading the manga after the anime?

If you do not want to wait for an anime season and are curious about the rest of the story and its finale, you can read the manga from where the anime left off. Reading manga from where the boss battle started in Chapter 90.4 will be the best starting point for those who do not want to read from scratch. The anime deviated slightly from the manga so revisiting that fight should give enough context for the upcoming arcs.
