Play runs in September

The official website for the stage play based on ONE's Mob Psycho 100 manga revealed visuals of four cast members in costume as their characters on Tuesday:

Setsuo Ito as Shigeo "Mob" Kageyama (Ito previously played the character in the manga's television anime adaptation)

Gaku Matsumoto as Ritsu Kageyama

Yūta Hoshino as Hikaru Tokugawa

Takeshi Nadagi is similarly reprising his role as Dimple

Ito, Matsumoto, Hoshino, and Nadagi are all reprising their roles from the previous stage play, alongside Miyu Suenaga as Ichi Mezato.

The new cast members include:

  • Shoichiro Oomi as Tenga Onigawara (replacing Yūya Kido)
  • Kentarō Kanesaki as Musashi Gōda (replacing Naoya Gōmoto)
  • Seiichirō Nagata as Shō

Keita Kawajiri (Sugarboy) is again directing and writing the script. The new play will run at The Galaxy Theatre in Tokyo from September 13-17 and at Shinkobe Oriental Theater in Hyōgo from September 20-23.

The first stage play (seen right) ran from January 6-14 at The Galaxy Theater in Tokyo.

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 October 19, and the 16th will ship on July 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 also inspired a live-action drama starring Tatsuo Hamada in January. TV Tokyo produced the live-action show in collaboration with Netflix. In addition, the anime received an event centered on the character Reigen in March, and Crunchyroll is streaming the event anime. The event revealed the main anime's second season.
