posted on by Alex Mateo
Funimation and Crunchyroll announced on Monday that they are streaming Mob Psycho 100 II: The First Spirits and Such Company Trip ~A Journey that Mends the Heart and Heals the Soul~ (Mob Psycho 100 Dai Ikkai Rei to ka Sōdansho Ianryokō ~Kokoro Mitasu Iyashi no Tabi~), the new original video anime (OVA) of ONE's Mob Psycho 100 manga, this week.
Funimation will stream the anime with an English dub. Funimation's website states that it will begin streaming the anime on Monday, but its Twitter account lists that it will begin streaming on Tuesday. Crunchyroll will begin streaming the anime on Tuesday worldwide (except in Asia) in Japanese with English subtitles, as well as in the following dubbed languages: English, Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese.
The two companies describe the anime's story:
Mob, Reigen, Dimple, and the newest member of the Spirits and Such Consultation Office staff, Serizawa, take a trip up to a secluded hot spring called Ibogami Hot Springs in Zebra Prefecture. Reigen happened to get a request from the matron there to discover the truth behind the strange rumors going around there and save the inn. Ritsu and Teru also join in on this trip and the six of them head out on this super relaxing trip to the hot spring. But on their way there, Reigen and Serizawa start nodding off on the train and somehow get sucked into an eerie parallel world...
This year's Crunchyroll Expo hosted the world premiere of the anime on August 31. The anime will debut on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in Japan on September 25. It will also have a release event on the same day at Animate Akihabara with Setsuo Ito as a guest.
The earlier television anime's first season premiered in Japan in July 2016, and the second season premiered this past January. Crunchyroll streamed both series as they aired in Japan. Funimation streamed English dubs for the anime and released the first series on home video. The first series joined Adult Swim's Toonami programming block last October. The Mob Psycho 100 REIGEN: The Miraculous Unknown Psychic event anime debuted in March 2018, and Crunchyroll streamed it. Crunchyroll and Funimation later streamed it with a dub.
Update: Funimation updated its website to list the streaming date as Tuesday instead of Monday.
