Bang! Zoom's dub to premiere on Funimation on Sunday

Funimation Entertainment announced on Friday that Bang Zoom! Entertainment will provide the English dub for Mob Psycho 100. The main cast includes:

  • Kyle McCarley as Shigeo
  • Chris Niosi as Reigen
  • Max Mittelman as Ritsu
  • Michael Sorich as Ekubo
  • Erik Kimerer as Hanazawa

The series will premiere on the FunimationNow streaming service on Sunday, December 11 at 9:30 p.m. EST. New dubbed episodes will premiere every week.

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 12-episode anime premiered in Japan on July 11 and Crunchyroll streamed the series with English subtitles as it aired in Japan.

Yuzuru Tachikawa (Death Parade) directed the anime at BONES (Fullmetal Alchemist, Eureka Seven, Space Dandy, Blood Blockade Battlefront). Hiroshi Seko (Ajin) oversaw the scripts, Yoshimichi Kameda (One-Punch Man animation director) designed the characters, Kazuhiro Wakabayashi (Eureka Seven, Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex, Soul Eater) served as sound director, and Kenji Kawai (Ghost in the Shell, Hana Moyu, Patlabor) composed the music.

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.
