The mysterious countdown on Mob Psycho 100‘s Twitter page has reached day 90. It’s been nearly 3 months, and we still don’t know what it is leading up to. Will Mob Psycho 100 get season 3 or will it follow the new trend of sequel movies? Or is it something else entirely?
Day 90 illustration, posted earlier today:
The countdown started on July 12th, which was also the 5th anniversary of the first episode of the Mob Psycho 100 anime. Each post contains an image that shows scenes from the anime or even manga covers. These always include some sort of a number. While some are pretty obvious, the others are quite creative or require a bit of thinking:
There are also the really puzzle-like ones:
Mob Psycho 100 Season 3?
Considering the 100 in the title, it’s likely the countdown will end in 10 days. While we can’t be sure what they’re counting down to, there are only 2 viable options. And that is either season 3 or a movie. With how much manga there is left to cover season 3 of Mob Psycho 100 might be the most likely option. But, we can’t be sure, especially since we don’t know when the countdown will end. Also, counting to 100 does seem like a logical answer when we take the title into consideration, but who knows?
Mob Psycho 100 is based on a manga written by ONE, the author of One Punch Man. It started serializing in Ura Sunday magazine in 2012. The manga ended in 2017, after 101 chapters (16 volumes). A spin-off series Mob Psycho 100: Reigen was serialized from 2018 to 2019.
Studio BONES animated the first season of anime, which came out in 2016. The second one followed in 2019 and had 13 episodes. Yuzuru Tachikawa directed both seasons, while Yoshimichi Kameda did character designs. Kenji Kawai composed the music, with Hiroshi Seko on series composition.
The franchise also has a side-story titled Mob Psycho 100 II: The First Spirits and Such Company Trip – A Journey that Mends the Heart and Heals the Soul.
Do you or someone you know need an exorcist who works cheap? Reigen’s your guy! What’s his secret to busting ghosts while keeping prices low? Well, first, he’s a fraud, and second, he pays the guy who’s got the real psychic power—his student assistant Shigeo—less than minimum wage. Shigeo is an awkward but kind boy whose urge to help others and get along with them is bound up with the mental safety locks he’s placed on his own emotions. Reigen knows he needs to exploit Shigeo to stay in business, yet for better or worse he’s also his mentor and counselor. And he also knows whenever the normally repressed kid’s emotions reach level 100, it may unleash more psychic energy than either of them can handle!-via Dark Horse
