Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 might be closer than we expected back in 2019. With season 2’s conclusion happening back in 2019, there has been a void left to fill, and with how things are proceeding, Animation Studio BONES might finally lift the curtain on Mob Psycho Season 3’s renewal.
Also, with numerous leaks in the past, Crunchyroll and VRV might enter the field and give us some tidbits that hints show’s return in 2022. With that being said, let’s walk you through the possibilities of season 3’s return and what lies ahead of our hero.
Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 Expected Storyline: What might happen in season 3?
One of the critical areas for the show’s return has been the storyline. As fans already know, season 2’s finale witnessed an epic showdown between Mob and Suzuki Toichiro.
Mob seizing victory against Suzuki Toichiro was inevitable; however, with the main antagonist taken down, someone has to take charge. This is where it gets critical as, if we go by its source material, most of the original story arc has been covered.
There are still substantial load chapters left to cover as per reports, so with such a high number of additional content, ONE and studio BONES has still some work to do.
According to spoilers on Reddit, the prime attraction would be to adapt the last few chapters for Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 within ten episodes to provide a proper conclusion. The arcs and their pacing are as follows:
Broccoli arc – Might take up to 4 episodes
Telepathy Club arc – This might target to finish within two episodes
???% arc – This arc will most likely target to conclude the story of ‘Mob Psycho 100’ is within the final four episodes
Some filler content showing the dynamics of the characters
Mob Psycho 100 Season 2 Recap:
In the finale of Mob Psycho 100 Season 2, after defeating Suzuki Toichiro, Mob took him into custody, and an enraged Toichiro turned himself into a live bomb. To reduce the devastating power of the explosion, Mob transferred the power into his body. However, it came with a huge cost as it cost him his natural power, ultimately turning him weak. Seeing all this, Toichiro softens and eventually surrenders himself.
It might seem like the perfect conclusion, but season 3 still has content in store for us. With Toichiro out of the action, we might get to see a new antagonist wreaking havoc once again. Apart from that, Mob’s new life and how he deals with his current weak state will also be a key point to explore.
Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 Release Date: When might season 3 premiere?
The previous season, i.e., season 2, concluded on July 18, 2019, and it ran for 13 episodes. From its previous pattern, it’s safe to assume that season 3 will probably target for at least ten episodes (discussed above).
Now, with episode count addressed, the main question is ‘when will Mob Psycho Season 3 release?’ As of now, we don’t have an official announcement from BONES; however, recent leaks suggest Q3- Q4 of 2022 as a plausible window.
There have been discussions on Reddit that Bones Studio might treat fans with a new Mob Psycho 100 Movie or OVA to conclude its ongoing story. But because of lack of legitimacy, it isn’t very likely for the team to follow this route.
Is Mob Psycho 100 Canceled?
This is a grey area to address, as the answer is both yes and no. Well, what that means is, officially, there have been no words of canceling the series after season 2, but at the same time, studio Bones has kept mum on season 3’s status. The overall story still has three significant arcs (as discussed above), and the anime is yet to cover them.
With more support from fans, Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 will eventually get a green light from the production house. It’s not a major task as the community of Mob Psycho is very active, and the demand for season 3 is at its peak, so fingers crossed.
Who will return in Mob Psycho 100 Season 3? Will Season 3 introduce new characters?
The upcoming season might also introduce a new character, and as per rumors, it might be ‘Haruki Amakusa.’ Yuzuru Tachikawa is currently identifying areas to improve and an angle to bring a fresh story for Mob Psycho 100 Season 3. New characters will be a significant part of this, and Haruki Amakusa might have a crucial role. Haruki Amakusa is in pursuit of Hyakki, a spiritual monster.
Storywise, we can expect a little filler content to increase the episode count and will give fans more time with their favorite characters.
As discussed, the inclusion of a new villain is inevitable. According to some theories, we might see a backstory of Mob, where he fights the baddies with his supernatural powers to maintain peace.
All the major characters will return for season 3 (if renewed), which includes Shigeo Kageyama, Ritsu Kageyama, Teruki Hanazawa, Reign Arataka, Dimple, Shou Suzuki, Arataka Reigen, and others.
The official production team will most likely return. We have Yuzuru Tachikawa as the director. Yoshimichi Kameda will be taking care of new character designs, while Kazuhiro Wakabayashi will be working on Mob Psycho 100 Season 3’s music.
Where to watch Mob Psycho 100 Season 3?
As always, Crunchyroll serves as one of the best places to watch the show. Fans can also catch the action on VRV, and both platforms will most likely broadcast Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 when it airs.
Season 1 and 2 are also available. In addition, we have ‘Bilibili’ for viewers based in China, while dubbed watchers can follow the show on HBO Max and Anime-Planet.
Season 1 has a total of 12 episodes, whereas the second one is a 13-episode long season. All the above-mentioned services will require an active subscription on the platform.
Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 Trailer:
As of now, without an official confirmation, we don’t have an official trailer for Mob Psycho 100 Season 3, but we are sure it will drop a few months earlier from its release on Youtube. For now, you can watch season 2’s trailer.
Mob Psycho 100: What is it about?
‘Mob Psycho 100,’ an original action-comedy Japanese manga series by ONE, marked its official debut back in 2012. With over 1.2 million copies sold as of 2016, it had already gardened a massive fanbase. It has been a popular series ever since the first season concluded. Both Polygon and IGN named it as one of the most popular series in the last decade, whereas Crunchyroll included it as the ‘Top 25 best anime of the 2010s.
After seeing huge success upfront, studio BONES decided to adapt it into an anime series, bolstering its popularity worldwide.
