One-Punch Man original author ONE will have another anime adaptation of his manga series, titled Mob Psycho 100. Voice actors and staff of the new anime series have been announced recently.
Since One-Punch Man has become a phenomenal hit since its first run in October 2015, it is a challenge for Mob Psycho 100 to follow in the footsteps of ONE and Yusuke Murata?s anime series. Cross Map says that this new anime adaptation of ONE?s manga is slated to premiere this Fall 2016.
Youth Health Mag reports the new TV series is composed of famous staff. ??Death Parade” director Yuzuru Tachikawa will helm the Mob Psycho 100 anime. The scriptwriter of ?Ajin? Hiroshi Seko, on the other hand, will pen the script, while character design will be taken care of by “One Punch Man” animation director Yoshimichi Kameda. Kazuhiro Wakabayashi will be teaming up with Kenji Kawai in producing quality sounds and music for the anime. The confirmed voice actors listed in My Anime List are Setsuo Ito and Takahiro Sakurai, playing the roles of Shigeo Kageyama and Arataka Rengei respectively.
In case you wonder why Mob Psycho 100 is getting an anime adaption, fans voted for this manga series in a contest hosted by Ura Sunday in Jan. 2015. ONE?s manga series came out as a runner-up choice of the said contest.
Mob Psycho 100 has been launched sometime in 2012. According to Anime News Network, the plot is focused on an unusual boy named Mob. He has a psychic power. However, this protagonist explodes whenever ?his emotional capacity reaches 100%.? Thus, his power makes it hard for him to live a normal life. He is like a ticking time bomb.
Mob Psycho 100 series was first launched on Ura Sunday. However, Shogakukan started publishing the manga in 2014 via its MangaOne app. Since December 2015, there has already been 11 compiled book volumes that have been published.
The first promotional video has also been released in Feb. 2016. Check out the video below.
