Dark Horse Licenses Mob Psycho 100 Manga
posted on by Karen Ressler
Dark Horse Comics announced through Crunchyroll news on Monday that it will release ONE's Mob Psycho 100 manga in English. The first volume is slated for release on October 24.
Dark Horse describes the story:
What's his secret to busting ghosts while keeping prices low? Well, first, he's a fraud, and second, he pays the guy who's got the real psychic power--his student assistant Shigeo--less than minimum wage. Shigeo is an awkward but kind boy whose urge to help others and get along with them is bound up with the mental safety locks he's placed on his own emotions. Reigen knows he needs to exploit Shigeo to stay in business, yet for better or worse he's also his mentor and counselor. And he also knows whenever the normally repressed kid's emotions reach level 100, it may unleash more psychic energy than either of them can handle!
ONE launched the series on Ura Sunday in 2012 and later in MangaOne in 2014. The manga ended in December. Shogakukan will publish the manga's 16th compiled book volume on May 4.
ONE launched the Reigen spinoff manga in MangaOne in March.
The anime adaptation of the 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. A second season has been green-lit.
The manga also inspired a live-action drama series and a stage play, both of which premiered in January. An event anime that compiled the first season with added new scenes premiered in March and streamed on Crunchyroll.
