Mob Psycho 100 Gets Season 2 Renewal
During the evening session of the Mob Psycho 100, it was announced that the anime had been renewed for a second season. You may have noticed that many rumors have recently emerged on the subject of Season 2 of the supernatural comedy. It seems that some of them had a firm basis. Previously, we heard that BONES was working on a new Mob Psycho 100 project. However, it was unclear whether it should be an OVA or the eponymous movie. Finally, this Sunday, during the Mob Psycho 100 REIGEN ~ Miracle of the Unknown Psycho ~ event that held in Japan, ONE officially confirmed that the production on the 2nd installment of Mob Psycho 100 is underway.

Frankly, we have been expecting this decision and have even described our thoughts on the subject in our forecast. The main point we paid our attention was the fact that there is enough source material in the original for another television adaptation. The first season of Mob Psycho 100 covered just six volumes of the original manga, which consists of fourteen volumes. As a result, there was enough content, even for Season 3. So we doubted that BONES could face a lack of the source material. Secondly, ONE claimed that he isn't going to stop working on Mob Psycho 100. That's why we were sure that the story would continue.
Besides, the anime was a success among the viewers. On MyAnimeList, Mob Psycho 100 holds a score of 8.51/10 ~ 254,000 votes. The viewers of Crunchyroll have evaluated the anime at 4.7 out of 5 stars. On IMDb, the action series has a rating of 8.1/10 > 3,500 votes. Therefore, we have foreseen the renewal yet before the official announcement. On October 17, 2017, a live-action television adaptation was announced, furthermore.
Season 1 of Mob Psycho 100 debuted in July 2016 on Tokyo MX, in Japan. It is a television adaptation of a Japanese online comics series created by ONE. Funimation served a licensor of the anime in North America. The first season consisted of twelve episodes and has come to an end on September 27, 2016. On March 18, 2018, Mob Psycho 100 has got the 2nd installment.

If you have not watched this action comedy anime, please read a brief overview of Mob Psycho 100. Otherwise, scroll down to learn our forecast on the subject of the likely release date.
Don't mislead yourself, while looking at Shigeo Kageyama, nicknamed Mob. At first sight, he seems to be an inconspicuous middle school student. However, in fact, he possesses an extrasensory perception, the power he isn't able to control. Gradually, Shigeo perceives that his abilities are dangerous. As a result, he attempts to restrain emotions. In very deed, Shigeo is trying to live a normal life similar to his classmates. But he frequently got into troubles due to his unusual abilities. As he used to suppress the powers of his mind, they perennially attempt to go out the boundaries. Shigeo is concerned about this, realizing that this could threaten his surroundings. Shigeo's most powerful strength appears when he is in unconsciousness. Therefore, he doesn't seem aware of what he does, being in such condition. To impress his sweetheart, Shigeo joins the Body Improvement Club.
On The Possible Release Date For Season 2
As mentioned above, ONE has officially confirmed the renewal of Mob Psycho 100 for another round. According to the official announcement, the production upon a sophomore season is underway as well. However, BONES has yet to announce the exact date for the upcoming premiere. Perhaps you know that an OVA titled Mob Psycho 100 Reigen -Shirarezaru Kiseki Rein?ryokusha- premieres March 18, 2018. The manga of the same name will be issued the next day, on March 19, 2018.
Therefore, we doubt that the 2nd season of Mob Psycho 100 could premiere this year. We tend to believe that the premiere is slated for 2019. However, this is nothing but our forecast. In any case, we are looking forward to the official announcement. For now, stay tuned for updates. We'll keep you informed on the subject. We'll update this page as soon as getting more reliable data from BONES and other reliable sources.
