March 18 event to screen compilation with some new parts, centers on Reigen writing autobiography

The official website for the BONES' television anime of ONE's Mob Psycho 100 manga revealed more details on the "anime event" that the manga announced earlier in the day.

The Mob Psycho 100 Reigen: Shirarezaru Kiseki Reinōryokusha (The Miraculous Unknown Psychic) event will screen an anime compilation two times at Chiba's Maihama Ampitheater on March 18, 2018. The screenings will center on Mob's master Reigen as he gets the idea to write an autobiography. The screenings will compile the television anime but will include some new parts.

The event will host voice cast members Setsuo Ito (Mob), Takahiro Sakurai (Arataka Reigen), Akio Ohtsuka (Ekubo), Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Teruki Hanazawa), and Miyu Irino (Ritsu Kageyama), as well as the opening theme song performers MOB CHOIR.

The manga is also inspiring a live-action drama starring Tatsuo Hamada as Shigeo "Mob" Kageyama in January. TV Tokyo is producing the live-action show in collaboration with Netflix. In addition, the manga is inspiring a January stage play, in which voice actor Setsuo Ito reprises his role of Mob from the anime.

The original manga creator ONE (One-Punch Man) launched the Mob Psycho 100 series on Ura Sunday in 2012 and later in Shogakukan's Manga ONE app in 2014. Shogakukan published the manga's 15th compiled book volume on Thursday.

The anime adaptation of ONE's original manga premiered in Japan in July 2016 and Crunchyroll streamed the series with English subtitles as it aired in Japan. Funimation streamed an English dub for the anime last December.

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.
