Manga creator ONE followed his massive hit One-Punch Man with Mob Psycho 100. The web manga of Mob Psycho 100 also led to an anime adaptation by Bones released in Summer 2016 and a stage play to run from January 6-14, 2018 at The Galaxy Theater in Tokyo. The next incarnation of this beloved series will take place on the television screen with a live action drama series through Netflix premiering on January 12 2018 and TV Tokyo on January 18.
Eighth-grader Shigeo “Mob” Kageyama has tapped into his inner wellspring of psychic prowess at a young age. But the power quickly proves to be a liability when he realizes the potential danger in his skills. Choosing to suppress his power, Mob’s only present use for his ability is to impress his longtime crush, Tsubomi, who soon grows bored of the same tricks.
In order to effectuate control on his skills, Mob enlists himself under the wing of Arataka Reigen, a con artist claiming to be a psychic, who exploits Mob’s powers for pocket change. Now, exorcising evil spirits on command has become a part of Mob’s daily, monotonous life. However, the psychic energy he exerts is barely the tip of the iceberg; if his vast potential and unrestrained emotions run berserk, a cataclysmic event that would render him completely unrecognizable will be triggered. The progression toward Mob’s explosion is rising and attempting to stop it is futile.
