Live-action TV series, stage play debut in January

Manga creator ONE (One-Punch Man) revealed on Twitter on Tuesday that his Mob Psycho 100 manga will end in the next chapter that will debut on Shogakukan's Manga ONE app on Friday. The series' 100th chapter debuted in November.

ONE launched the series on Ura Sunday in 2012 and later in Manga ONE in 2014. Shogakukan published the manga's 15th compiled book volume on October 19.

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.

The manga is 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. The series will premiere on Netflix on January 12, and will also premiere on TV Tokyo's "MokuDora 25" time slot on January 18. BS Japan will begin airing the series on January 23.

The manga is also inspiring a stage play starring voice actor Setsuo Ito who is reprising his role as Mob from the anime. The play will run at The Galaxy Theater in Tokyo from January 6-14. In addition, the anime will have an event centered on the character Reigen at Chiba's Maihama Ampitheater on March 18. The event will include compilation screenings of the television anime with some new parts.
