Other cast members include:
The stage play will run from January 6-14, 2018 at The Galaxy Theater in Tokyo.
The original manga creator ONE (One-Punch Man) launched the Mob Psycho 100 series on Ura Sunday in 2012 and later in Shogakukan‘s MangaOne app in 2014. Shogakukan published the manga’s 15th compiled book volume on Thursday.
The anime adaptation of ONE‘s original manga premiered in Japan in July 2016 and Crunchyroll streamed the series with English subtitles as it aired in Japan. Funimation streamed an English dub for the anime last December.
Funimation describes the story:
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.
The manga is also inspiring a live-action drama starring Tatsuo Hamada in January. TV Tokyo is producing the live-action show in collaboration with Netflix. In addition, the anime will get an event centered on the character Reigen: it will include compilation screenings of the television anime with some new parts.
