On Monday December 17, Manga Entertainment will release a Blu-ray/DVD edition of Mob Psycho 100.

Based on the manga by ONE (the author of One Punch Man), the story revolves around "Mob," a boy who will explode if his emotional capacity reaches 100%. This boy with psychic powers earned his nickname "Mob" because he does not stand out among other people. He keeps his psychic powers bottled up so he can live normally, but if his emotional level reaches 100, something will overwhelm his entire body.

Yuzuru Tachikawa (Death Parade) directed the anime at BONES (Fullmetal Alchemist, Eureka Seven, Space Dandy, Blood Blockade Battlefront). Hiroshi Seko (Ajin) oversaw the scripts, Yoshimichi Kameda (One-Punch Man animation director) was the character designer, Kazuhiro Wakabayashi (Eureka Seven, Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex, Soul Eater) was the sound director, and Kenji Kawai (Ghost in the Shell, Hana Moyu, Patlabor) composed the music.

The manga creator ONE launched the Mob Psycho 100 series on Ura Sunday in 2012 and later in Shogakukan's MangaOne app in 2014. Shogakukan published the 11th compiled book volume of the manga in December.

Manga is also releasing the twentieth box-set of One Piece, carrying episodes 469 to 492 of the series.

Anime Limited is releasing a box-set collection of Tokyo Ghoul, carrying the 12-part original series, the sequel series Tokyo Ghoul √A and the OVAs Tokyo Ghoul: Jack and Tokyo Ghoul: Pinto.

MVM is releasing Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei, a five-part OVA spun from the preceding horror-mystery tV series.

Manga will release the film Assassination Classroom the Movie: 365 Days' Time. This film is a compilation of the Assassination Classroom television anime, but with some extra framing material.

Anime Limited will release (as an exclusive release through the AllTheAnime website) a Blu-ray collection of the two 12-part seasons of Snow White with the Red Hair.
