The Mob Psycho 100 anime series has been quite popular over the last few years, especially in North America with broadcast runs, and we recently saw the third series arrive. Now, Crunchyroll is expanding their offerings with the property as they added earlier this week the first two episodes of the second season with the Italian dub going live. New episodes are set to arrive every Monday going forward with this additional languages. The first season already has English, Portuguese, German, Castillian, Spanish, Arabic, and Italian dubs available in addition to the original Japanese.
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 twelve volumes out at the time that the anime was broadcast.
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.
