Mob Psycho 100 season 3 is set to release this fall!
The “goofy unassuming character suppressing his power” trope has been highly popular since the release of One Punch Man. While some still question if Mob Psycho rose to fame on the back of it, there is no doubt mangaka Tomohiro aka One, has created two mainstream anime masterpieces.
It’s a fairly standard formula and a great way to externalize an internal struggle by making the main character the most powerful being on earth from the start, that in itself, is a lot of fun and filled with subversions.
Mob Psycho 100 is an action-comedy series anime adapted from the manga writings of One by Studio bones.
The story follows a young boy named Shigeo Kageyama, also known as Mob, who has incredible psychic abilities that becomes stronger when he’s in a heightened emotional state.
As he fears to inconvenience or hurting others with these powers, he tries to keep his emotions suppressed most of the time, which leads to him being socially awkward and feeling like an outcast, thus having extreme outbursts at the worst possible moments.
Mob spends most of his free time working for Reigen Arataka, a fraudulent spirit medium with no psychic abilities whatsoever.
He uses the mystique of the supernatural mostly as a marketing tool to sell people on discount therapy and massages on occasion, he does run into ghosts, and it’s the Mob’s job to mop those up.
It’s a show that exudes childhood innocence by taking one’s intentionally crude and amateur art style and leaning into it.
Instead of superheroes, Mob Psycho is aimed at the kids with supernatural abilities genre, where the main character’s personal growth is tied to the strength of his powers.
Fans have been waiting ever so long, and finally, the wait is over as Mob Psycho 100 season 3 has officially got a release date; keep scrolling to find out more.

Mob Psycho 100 manga is written by One, and it began publication in Weekly Shonen Web Comics since 18th April 2012.The manga has been collected into 16 volumes with 101 chapters, and the series finished releasing its final issue on 22nd December 2017.
The first season adapted the first 50 chapters of the manga, and season two covered the following 40 chapters. The source material for season 3 was also considered a point for renewal, but with many sub-chapters left unadapted, there should be enough content for the creators.
Some fans were also concerned about the renewal for the third season since the manga had already ended in 2016, and its sales weren’t the best either, i.e., as of 2016, Mob Psycho 100 manga only sold 1.2 million copies.
Despite making average sales, the manga won the 62nd Shogakukan Award in the Shonen category. Finally, disc sales were limited to only 4220 units due to the rise of streaming platforms.
Mob Psycho manga is rated 8.6/10 and ranked #78 with 99k members on MyAnimeList.
In Mob Psycho Season 2, we saw a showdown between Mob and Toichiro Suzuki, which resulted in the sprouting of broccoli called Divine Tree in Spice City, thus concluding the World Domination Arc.
Mob Psycho season 3 will adapt the final three arcs, i.e., Divine Tree Arc, Telepathy Mini Arc, and ???% Arc. The appearance of Divine Tree will attract many cults, such as the Psycho Helmet cult.
Monster organizations will also begin showing up who will be tracked by Amakusa, but he isn’t powerful to stop them and would need the help of Mob, Serizawa, and Reigen.
We will also find out the secret behind the broccoli tree, whose roots are powdered by the Helmet cult and used to brainwash people. To stop the extraction of this powder, Mob will once again take center stage to fight off the cult members.
While an external battle wages on, Mob has an internal storm building up when he is rejected by his crush Tsubomi. The rejection leads to power rage and a rampage by Mob as all hell breaks loose.
