Mob Psycho Anime Gets Second Season

Mob Psycho Season Two -- Featured

It was announced at the Mob Psycho 100 Reigen event on Sunday that Mob Psycho season two has been green-lit.

The original Mob Psycho manga series is written by ONE, and received it’s first anime adaptation in July 2016. A live-action adaptation of the series premiered on Netflix on January 12th.

MyAnimeList describes the story:

Eighth-grader Shigeo “Mob” Kageyama has tapped into his inner wellspring of psychic prowess at a young age. But the power quickly proves to be a liability when he realizes the potential danger in his skills. Choosing to suppress his power, Mob’s only present use for his ability is to impress his longtime crush, Tsubomi, who soon grows bored of the same tricks.

In order to effectuate control on his skills, Mob enlists himself under the wing of Arataka Reigen, a con artist claiming to be a psychic, who exploits Mob’s powers for pocket change. Now, exorcising evil spirits on command has become a part of Mob’s daily, monotonous life. However, the psychic energy he exerts is barely the tip of the iceberg; if his vast potential and unrestrained emotions run berserk, a cataclysmic event that would render him completely unrecognizable will be triggered. The progression toward Mob’s explosion is rising and attempting to stop it is futile.

It was additionally announced at the event that the same BONES staff from season one will return for the sequel.
