The second season of Mob Psycho 100 rolled out previously and delighted fans of the first season and now we’re catching up on a part of it. I had missed this earlier in the month in my notes but Australian distributor Madman Entertainment has scheduled the second season of this series for home video release. It’s planned for an August 5th, 2020 debut where the DVD/BD is priced at $69.95 and the DVD/BD limited edition at $99.95. The LE includes:
- Limited Edition Packaging
- 6 Art Cards
- 54 Page Art Book
- Phone Charm
- 2 Embroidered Badges
- 006 Storyboards by Yuzuru Tachikawa
- Key Animation for Selected Scenes
- TV Spot
- Textless Closing Song
The regular edition is the same as above but only with the on-disc extras.
The series was animated by Bones and was directed by Yuzuru Tachikawa based on the series composition by Hiroshi Seko. Character designs were done by Yoshimichi Kameda with Kenji Kawai doing the music for it.
The Japanese cast includes Setsuo Ito as Shigeo Kageyama and Takahiro Sakurai as Arataka Rengei. MOB CHOIR will sing the opening “99″ while ALL OFF will handle the ending theme song “Refrain Boy.”
The manga comes from creator ONE which began back in 2012 and has fifteen volumes out at this time.
The series features the opening song “99.9” by Mob Choir and the closing song “Memosepia” by Sanjou no Hana.
Plot concept: Shigeo Kageyama (a.k.a. “Mob”) is a 8th grader with psychic abilities. He could bend spoons and lift objects with his mind from a young age, but he slowly began to withhold from using his abilities in public due to the negative attention he received. Now, the only thing he wants is to become friends with a girl in his class, Tsubomi. With his psychic “mentor” (who has no psychic powers), he continues his daily life, attempting to realize his purpose in life.
