"Mob Psycho 100" Manga to End This Friday
It’s almost time to bid a fond farewell to another manga series. This time it’s One-Punch Man creator ONE’s Mob Psycho 100, which is officially coming to an end this week. ONE revealed as much today on Twitter, stating that the next chapter, which hits Shogakukan’s Manga ONE app on Friday, will be the last.
Mob Psycho 100 originally launched in 2012, and has since hit over 100 chapters and 15 compiled volumes. BONES’ TV anime adaptation—directed by Yuzuru Tachikawa (Death Parade) and written by Hiroshi Seko (Seraph of the End, Ajin)—debuted as part of summer 2016’s anime season.
The manga has yet to make its way over to the west, but you can, and definitely should, watch the anime. Here’s how Crunchyroll describes it:
Kageyama Shigeo, a.k.a. “Mob,” is a boy who has trouble expressing himself, but who happens to be a powerful esper. Mob is determined to live a normal life and keeps his ESP suppressed, but when his emotions surge to a level of 100%, something terrible happens to him! As he’s surrounded by false espers, evil spirits, and mysterious organizations, what will Mob think? What choices will he make? The anime based on the original story by ONE, the idol of the webcomic world and creator of One-Punch Man, is coming your way with animation by leading animation studio Bones!
