Mob Psycho 100 is an ongoing manga series by One-Punch Man creator ONE. Fifteen volumes have been released to date, with the most recent hitting Japanese bookstores on November 16.
The title received an anime adaptation in the Summer 2016 broadcast season. Yuzuru Tachikawa (Death Parade) directed the series at studio BONES, with Yoshimichi Kameda (Paroru no Miraijima) providing character designs. Hiroshi Seko (Ajin – Demi-Human, Seraph of the End) was in charge of series composition on the project.
Crunchyroll streamed Mob Psycho 100 as a simulcast, while Funimation offered it as a SimulDub. Funimation describes the show as:
Kageyama Shigeo (a.k.a. Mob) is an 8th grader with powerful psychic abilities. Workingunder his not-so-capable master, Reigen, Mob uses his powers to exorcise evil spirits. But his will to be normal causes him to suppress his powers and feelings until he hits 100 percent — a point where his pent-up emotions are unleased and a darker power takes over.
