posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Southeast Asian channel Animax Asia began streaming an English-subtitled trailer for the Mob Psycho 100 anime on Sunday. The channel will simulcast the anime beginning on Tuesday, July 12 at 9:30 p.m. in Jakarta and Bangkok, and 10:30 p.m. in Singapore and the Philippines. The series will air in the same time slot every Tuesday, on the same day as Japan.
Animax Asia describes the anime:
Adapted from a celebrated manga by One Punch Man author ONE, Mob Psycho 100 is a supernatural comedy that revolves around Kageyama Shigeo, a seemingly ordinary boy who keeps his psychic powers hidden. Known to others as “Mob”, Shigeo intentionally refrains from making his presence known or standing out amongst others due to a peculiar affliction – his psychic powers will go out of control and he explodes if his emotional capacity reaches 100%! Produced by renowned studio BONES (known for its work on hit series such as Fullmetal Alchemist and Space Dandy), fans are sure to be in for an amazing visual treat!
