One-Punch Man Creator's Mob Psycho 100 Manga Gets TV Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
Studio BONES adapts ONE's story about boy with hidden psychic powers in 2016

Shogakukan's web comic magazine Ura Sunday announced on Wednesday that a television anime adaptation of ONE's Mob Psycho 100 manga has been green-lit. The anime will air next year, and the studio BONES (Fullmetal Alchemist, Eureka Seven, Blood Blockade Battlefront) is producing.

The story revolves around "Mob," a boy who will explode if his emotional capacity reaches 100%. This boy with psychic powers earned his nickname "Mob" because he does not stand out among other people. He keeps his psychic powers bottled up so he can live normally, but if his emotional level reaches 100, something will overwhelm his entire body.

The manga creator ONE launched the Mob Psycho 100 series on Ura Sunday in 2012 and later in Shogakukan's Manga ONE app in 2014. Shogakukan will publish the 11th compiled book volume of the manga on Friday.

Another manga by ONE, One-Punch Man, inspired the ongoing television anime.

Ura Sunday lets readers vote earlier this year for which of its manga should get an anime adaptation, and Mob Psycho 100 was among those titles that received the most votes.
