Mob is back, and ready to explode with psychic power. Mob Psycho 100 is a popular series by One Punch Man creator ONE. In it, the main character Mob is a psychic who fights evil spirits and others with ESP powers. The series is well known for its deadpan humor and impressive animation. It even took a runner-up spot in the Anime of the Decade series done by Funimation. It’s been a couple of years since the second season took the world by storm. Well, now the wait is over. A trailer for Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 has dropped!
What Exactly Does Mob Psycho 100 Bring to the Table?
Some anime fans wonder what Mob Psycho 100 does to be so successful. At face value, it looks a bit odd. To get a better idea of the plot, it revolves around Mob and his teacher Reigen. Reigen is a sort of spirit detective, helping people with curses and monsters and such. You’ll quickly find out, he’s a bit more of a hack than expected. Mob, a naive boy with incredible psychic potential, follows the man to hell and back. The twist is that Mob has had trouble expressing his emotions due to his latent power. It gets him into more than one crazy situation when his bottled-up emotions boil over to 100%, hence the name. Seems like a simple enough plot right? Let’s delve into what will make season 3 special.
The thing that many fans say pushes the show to greater levels is the depth created from there. Like One Punch Man, the show puts a mirror up to the genre, before shattering it. Just like its older brother redefines the superhero genre, Mob Psycho 100 redefines the psychic and spirit genre. It delves into the experience that comes with these powers. Mainly, what having powers like this can do to someone psychologically. For any who’ve seen X-Men or the like, it’s a similar feel.
Season 2 of the show was both a narrative and animated masterpiece, with so many climactic scenes that fans can lose count. The author, ONE, has time and again proven his narrative ability with the two shows he’s created. As someone who started as an amateur making small webcomics, it’s quite impressive. For now, we don’t know much about Mob Psycho 100 Season 3. The Mob Psycho 100 new trailer gave us some ideas on who would be working on it, and that the original cast would be returning. Unfortunately, there’s no release date yet. We can only look forward to our favorite psychic weirdo coming back soon.
