Mob Psycho Season 3: Everything We Know So Far


 

With the recent announcement of Mob Psycho 100 season 3 exciting fans of the series, here are a few details about what to expect when the anime returns. The anticipation has been growing around a third and potentially final season of the show since season 2 came to an end in 2019, leaving part of the original manga unadapted. That anticipation was heightened when the official Mob Psycho 100 Twitter account began posting images counting up, one per day, in a similar style to the imagery used in the series to measure Mob’s mental anguish and closeness to losing control. On October 19, 2021 the count hit 100% heralding the official announcement that season 3 had begun production.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Mob Psycho 100 is based on a manga by ONE, the creator of One Punch Man, and has the same mixture of offbeat humor and sincerity that made its predecessor a hit. It stars the shy but powerful psychic Mob as he tries to navigate a world full of dangerous spirits, psychic organizations, his con man boss Reigen, and the general struggles of teenage awkwardness. The series charmed many and resulted in a second and now third anime season being approved. Season 3 is being animated by BONES, the same studio as the first two, with all original cast and crew members returning.

Mob Psycho Season 2 Ending Explained

The final episodes of Mob Psycho 100 season 2 see Mob face off with Claw, an organization of powerful psychics dedicated to world conquest. When Toichiro targets Reigen, Mob is enraged and reaches 100% power. However, he ultimately regains control of faculties and stops Toichiro from destroying himself. Toichiro admits the error of his ways and allows himself to be arrested. The result of Mob’s powers being unleashed have also resulted in the growth of a piece of broccoli into a giant tree, which will play a role in season 3. Many have hailed Mob Psycho 100 as a modern day classic, with season 2 helping to grow the series’ reputation.

Will Mob Psycho Season 3 End The Anime?

Despite the continued popularity of Mob Psycho 100, it seems likely that season 3 will be the last in the series. So far, the anime has been a fairly faithful adaptation of the manga by ONE. That manga ended in 2017 with 101 chapters collected across 16 volumes. The first two seasons of Mob Psycho 100 anime have adapted 91 of those chapters, so season 3 will already be stretching existing material. The anime could theoretically continue with original plots, but such adaptations typically aren’t well-received by fans, who usually want anime to stick closely to its source material. Time will tell, but Mob Psycho 100 season 3 will more than likely be the end of the anime series.

What Mob Psycho Season 3 Could Adapt From The Manga

As previously stated, the majority of the Mob Psycho 100 manga was already adapted in the first two seasons of the anime, but there are still a few loose ends to tie up before the series wraps. The one remaining major story arc in the Mob Psycho 100 manga is the Divine Tree arc, which sees confrontations between different groups of worshippers who all believe that the large tree Mob grew with his power is sacred. The manga ends with a few chapters dealing with Mob’s personal life, including end-of-year exams and his attempts to confess his love to Tsubomi. With only 10 chapters remaining, it seems likely that there will also be some anime-original material and storylines.

Mob Psycho Season 3 Release Predictions

The anime industry is currently in a period of change—especially where English-language streaming is concerned—with services like Disney+, HBO Max and Netflix investing in the future of anime, and major streamers Crunchyroll and Funimation coming under the same ownership. The two previous seasons of Mob Psycho 100 aired week-to-week on Crunchyroll and Funimation in the west, with the dubbed version of season 1 also airing on Adult Swim, and a similar release is most likely for season 3. In the past, there has been a 3-6 month gap between the announcement of a season and its airing, so Mob Psycho 100 season 3 will most likely air as part of the spring or summer 2022 anime seasons, although no release date has been announced so far. Fans will eagerly be awaiting the conclusion to the story in Mob Psycho 100 season 3.
